I do not know what game the OP is playing, but he can not compare Zynga with Disney. First, because we have already seen that Disney does not understand fucking anything about Star Wars or games, and Zynga is a company that is much smaller than Disney, but specializes in games.
Disney never gave a damn about the players, it was always "damn you all, but okay, we already know, now take this compensation and do not disturb anymore!" While Zynga has created a Survey and seems to be following our comments here to improve the game and please the players.
Zynga is doing what needs to be done, giving rewards in conflicts and events for different units, many of which we have not seen for months, if it's to keep those units in the game, at least give new players chances to unlock them and to old players to upgrade/max out them.
Alternating conflicts for important units with Events is the best option not to fatigue players who insist on grind for any unit in the game in an attempt to max out the unit the fastest possible. If you do not want to play conflicts, play Events, or vice versa, or take those weeks off until you have another conflict/event you want to attend.
No one needs to play everything the game offers, nor is it possible: conflicts, events, daily objectives, heroic defenses, squad wars, Tatooine storyline, or just casually attack, choose what best suits your profile.
I agree the gameplay is much more stable now, even though I still be having Status 6503 and Status 1516 and CNFOs from time to time, but nothing that is annoying as it was in the past with Disney.
Matchmaking has improved a lot, for all my accounts. My Rebel and Imperial Prestige now can find real bases that are possible to win, not by 3 stars all the time, but enough to complete an EP request, and Dev bases now have several types, from the maxed out prestige burst/sonic farms to less developed bases like HQ 10 and Prestige with turrets Level 8-9, which is easy to 3 stars with half the layout -- those bases are perfect for EP Events.
And I earned more crystals in 2 months than I earned in almost 5 years playing this game on Windows and Android! Despite my two Prestige already have the 5th worker droid, the current crystal orgy allowed me to buy the 5th droid for all my 4 low level bases, what means I can buy the 5th droid right now for my two HQ 6 if I want. Can you believe in this? A HQ 6 with 5 worker droids without spending a cent in crystals ???
They increased the number of frags in conflict crates, and they reduced the amount of EP for Elite Crates. Great job!
Do not know how long SWC will be online, but now the game is much more playable under Zynga than it was with Disney, so one more time, fuck Disney! And I am having fun playing with all my bases for the first time in years.
Thank you, Zynga!
