The problem is how HH tries to frame these changes. That is why players are so upset. They made it seem like these changes would be beneficial to most players but that’s not the case. They are going to cost the vast majority of players more gold to buy cash/sta/skill points. That in turn means more gold purchases with real money. Either that, or more likely than not, most people will not want to buy these resets at all.
Sure, if you want to buy 3x any of these the change benefits you, but who was seriously spending 300 gold a day on skill points, cash, and sta? I know I wasn’t. Sta was the only somewhat decent deal. The cash exchange was never a good trade (10 gold for 1 skill point, basically) and skill points resets are worthless since they are so plentiful (the limiting factor is cash, not the availability of skill points. I sit with the 10 max unable to use them over 75% of the time since I don’t have cash to use them).
Meanwhile they claim they read everything and are trying to fix issues, but the same issues have gone on for several months now with no sign of any fixes. Most heroes in the game are still garbage and need to be fixed. Sandbagging and min/maxing has gotten better, but still is a huge problem. Gorgon is still the exact same as it’s been from the start and no one bothers playing it beyond when they initially start the game. Gauntlet is boring and is auto played by most. Everyone is pretty much strapped for cash since inflation never was addressed. I would love to see a patch where all of these things are fixed and we aren’t force fed yet another under cooked hero.
And don’t get me wrong, I am all for HH making money. I just think they go about it all wrong lately. Increase VIP to level 20 and offer some cool new benefits (a free co-op reset, increased cash from exchange, cool looking skin or portrait, etc). Give us some cool skins that cost gold or money (a couple bucks or hundred gold). Hell, even give us a new hero, but actually balance them and make them unique and interesting. Don’t make it necessary to purchase them to be competitive in every event and don’t force them on us at a rediculous $30 a pop.
