First I'm not complaining, but just observing.
If I play correctly, I beat most average players, but if I can't get same items as top players I can't beat the top players, so I'm stuck somewhere in the middle - obviously it gets kinda boring.
I know who I can beat and I know who I can't beat - and that from one single look at the other player. Smacking down the same poor bastards has become routine lol...
The game lacks something that can give anyone a chance to win, so every fight can have unexpected events. Right now it's is all about the gear, once you got it you will just settle somewhere on the ladder like a submarine at some depth. And that is just boring.
I agree and don't agree.
If someone is willing to pay real money to get legendary items then he should have a slight advantage. Why else would they pay money towards the game? How do the developers create a money flow to help develop the game?
I have well over 100 legendary items. I've also been playing for a long time. Most of my builds only have 2-4 legendary items included. The rest is made up of epic, rare, or normal items. Its more about tactics and finding a build that beats the people you loose to. You cant expect to beat them if you use the exact same build and tactics.
It does get boring fighting the same people over and over and using the exact same moves to win. But that's not supermechs fault. Its the players faults. I have been gone for 3 months and recently started playing again. From what i can tell, everyone just looks at the images from the top players and then tries to copy those builds. No one takes the time or brain power to come up with their own builds. It takes me 5 min to put together a build that beats all the newbs copying successful players. Although sometimes i spend hours or days coming up with new builds and tweaks to help me win. More people need to do this. It's the point of the game in my high opinion. But everyone is so scared to mess up their win/loss ratio so they just copy others.
What can supermechs do to help? I think they should remove the image from the ladders of your mech. What do they show then.. hmm, how about people get to pick from a bunch of icons on what they want others to see. Obviously this isn't a fix all, people can still watch replays and copy. But it would help a little.
The game is flawed. Its in beta. It has been for as long as i can remember. Its helpful to criticize but offer some advice as well. Offer some idea's that could help make the game better.
I plan on playing more again and seeing how some of the changes have effected the game. I normally play at lvl 30. I do have a few random lvl mechs as well but the lower levels are just way to easy, no real fight, and that's why most people play at 16, 18, 23 ... very few great players.
I am happy to help anyone who has questions or elaborate on anything I've said here. If you have a question let me know.
