Most of the things I will list below are topics consistently brought up by the community, but have yet to be addressed by the developers. I believe these are the biggest issues we currently have with the game. I will list the issues then list why I feel like they are a problem.
Other than a few reward updates, bounty game play has gone largely unchanged since it was first released years ago. The only change I can remember is the time being reduced, and new heroes added. After awhile this leads to them feeling very boring and mundane. Not only that, but spawning bounties feels like a huge waste most the time. Why do so many <70 bounties spawn in Alliances with all 95+ players? This should be a rare occurrence and most spawns should be in the 85-99 range if you are level 95+. Because of this bounties not only feel like a boring chore, they also take a ton of time to complete AND require a significant amount of resources (and this isn’t even mentioning the lopsided elemental types that spawn vs the bonus hero types…)
Getting top tier ruby takes WAY to long. For the average player, to get a hero to ruby takes roughly two months. This is without spending any significant real money or any events. I get the developers need to artificially draw out leveling, but that is entirely too long. 206 MK6 frags and 157 MK5 is a ton to ask when you only get 1 or 2 per 100 stamina used. An easy solution here seems like it would be to make MK5 available in the Alliance Store. That way we could at least buy the MK5 and just worry about collecting MK6 frags from story mode. This brings me to my next point…
The stores have not been touched in years. They are in dire need of a revamp. Half the items in them are completely useless. Bronze xp and silver fuel cells in the Alliance store? Gold xp and skin tokens in the Heronium? Most newer players don’t have the heronium/gems to buy these things and most veteran players don’t need them, so why are they even there? Meanwhile players are in dire need of ruby gear and MK5 fragments yet they are not available anywhere but story mode.
Again, most of these have not been touched in years and if they have, they were very minor updates. It gets really boring playing the same Helios/Dojo/GW/CH raids over and over and over again. Then add to it the monthly events which re-use the same levels and it makes things that much worse. Why have there not been any new levels/raids added to the game in over a year? Other than 4 new PVP maps, I don’t think I have seen any updates here in what seems like forever.
