A boycott on spending money.

Post#1 » Sat Mar 09, 2019 2:15 pm

Hello everyone,

I'm playing this game for free. I have spent money on games and it never really turned out well. I do appreciate the folks that spend money on this game, but it seems to me the developers don't. We are being used to beta test changes to the game from the moment Zynga took over. I have never been part of a game that had it's own independent forum and widespread line presense. With these things would it be practical to organize a boycott on spending money?

What do you think?

Boots

P.S. to the folks that set this forum up so the community can gather and discuss:.

Thank you! You are the reason I continue to play this game.

It does suck Boots, the game is so greed based. Only thing you can do to get back @Disney/Zynga is do your HD loops.

Max out them HD frags & it will really help out on offense & Defense

No one needs to put money in this game, but someone have to do to keep the game alive, this is a freemium game never forget this. I am on this boycot since ever, because I never put a cent in the Mickey's ass playing in more than 4 years, and had the generous crystals compensation for losing my Imperial base on Windows.

If you are going to put money in this game for some reason, it should be only to buy the 4th and 5th Droid, nothing more. And if you have patience, you can get enough crystals to buy the 4th droid when you still is level 6 or 7, and probably buy the 5th droid when you reach HQ 9m only playing the game for free.

I see Prestige bases with level 3-4 turrets/shields/resources generators. One dude joined my squad as Prestige with a Level 3 Lab. When I asked why he had a Lab level 3, he asked me why he should upgrade the Lab... There are too many players paying to play, what is good for the game.

But never buy crates in the shop for specific units if you don't have the other possible units maxed out. You will be wasting your money to get crap you don't want/need.

All Armory and Elite Units you need to win in this game are available in HDs, Objectives and War crates -- and they are free. Play on a daily basis to do as many HDs and Objectives as possible, and play wars often and you'll be fine.

I've been boycotting spending money on this mess of a game for months now. I could care a less if my prestige and troop upgrades take 10-14 days to finish.

Disney got way too greedy and lost sight. They stretched the wait times too long and the costs too high that there's no motivation whatsoever to put any money into this game.

Without people putting money into the game it'd die, so while I don't spend money I appreciate the players that do as it keeps the game going.

Yes, lets organize a boycott of spending money so ... uh ... they just turn the thing off?

You can always delete the app you know? That is the same thing that would happen.

Besides, this boycott seems to have happened already as revenue has gone down pretty consistently for 14 months (long before Zynga, BTW).
