Before I started spending, I was happy to reach 5 lvls under the cap before the cap was lifted (so I was always 5-10 lvls under cap at all times). When I first started spending, I could reach cap in a couple days after its release.
Now, I barely reach cap in a couple weeks. Granted, I don’t spend as much, but the game also (until very recently) isn’t offering as much for what we spend. But don’t mistake this as maxing my heroes out. This is just team level…
Maxing gear on my heroes… that takes about a month or so, just for my Meta team… I’m a light spending, about $10 a month, I hoard everything, and I’m patient.
And as Loo said, sure we could get lucky and lvl a hero that’s gonna be op, but after the Rogue and Feral Brute nerfs, I’m not at all interested in trying out my luck.
It’s sad that I waited three weeks to lvl a hero just because I was sure it was gonna get nerfed. Betcha as soon as I epic it, it’ll happen though, and a new hero will be available to take its place.
Most of the people whining here don’t tend to whine, and have been known to defend PB on several occasions. This is just like a union thing; we’re being jipped, and we’re letting them know that we’re aware of it.
