View Full Version : This isn't even a game anymore

How is KA even justified as a game anymore? It's just the new form of a gambling problem. There's no strategy or teamwork anymore it's just who can buy the most gems and spend the most. Honestly how is there satisfaction in that? Who has the biggest wallet and who can tap the fastest. There is no aspect of KA anymore that resembles a game every area is tainted. Everything that makes a game a game is far gone. The reasons why you play a game in the first place no longer apply here. The richer get stronger the free stay weak with no chance at ever closing the gap. Can anyone actually say they're proud they're #1 because they bought their way to the top? Actually believe they earned that spot with nothing other than the biggest wallet and the fastest tapping. Just seems hallow to me with nothing behind it. This isn't a game anymore it's just empty.

I actually agree with both comments here but I'm stuck in the middle. Agreeing with the first, wanting to do the second but can't. I guess I'm content having mediocre stats and spending as much as I feel I can justify on a game to get those mediocre stats. Nicely said Dkh and as always Nacon10 short and to the point but necessarily answered correctly.

Just like life....anybody/anything can be bought to get to the top. It's practical. ;)

I relate this game to playing Poker...

And why i hate playing poker in 'table games' and only like playing in 'tournaments'.

Poker Table games people can just keep betting and betting with no recourse, and it's an uneven playing field when $100 to one person isn't the same value as $100 to another person... and people will just bet ridiculously because they can afford it... I equate that to spending on gems in this game... it's no fun.

That's why I haven't spent one dollar on this game... and relate this to poker 'Tournaments', where you buy-in for a certain number of chips and once you're out you're out. Everyone is level.

So you're just competing against yourself to see how well you can do without spending and it's quite satisfying to also have better stats than people that spend a lot too! :)

Once you start spending real $$$, your stats are only limited by your wallet and desire to spend.

I have to agree the game is less about fun and more about drama than when I first loaded the game long ago.

I strongly agree also that this game is getting out of hand, whoever has the big wallet will win it all. Especially right now with those individual Conquest prizes from top 1 to top 30,000. Those inside top 45 prizes with 100k stat unit will be unbeatable.

Gree, good job for doing this & making me stop spending on this outrageous expensive units. 2 thumbs up on you guys...

I don't mind the concept of "if you pay more you will be better than the rest". That is life and I support that 100%, but it's the fact that after each event they make it cost more and more to get anything worth anything is really pathetic. Gree acts like after each event the cost of living goes up and makes everything more expensive. Pretty sad the game is going this way and something better change soon or there will be no more KA.

Same here, we're in the middle of the guild wars and I really don't feel the need anymore to spend a lot of money (gems) in this.

The stats are really ridiculous by now, there was a time my stats were high in the game, now it's just average!
Thinking about many guild members who have halve my stats, I feel sad about it.

I know after this war, some of the TOP guilds will go up to 25 ~30m in stats!

What is the point in spending money( gems) during the war?? For fun and own joy, you can spend some gems on the quests and find 10 box events, but other than that I don't really see the point anymore.

The only reason I'm still in a guild is because of the friends in the guild, that is also the reason why is still play this game. Before I spent many hours and money in this game, now I spend only the required minutes and minimal RL money in the game to do what is necessary.

After the required minutes, I play my other game. :).

It's funny that still so many players are spending so much money in this game, don't they see the end is near? Stat infation has destroyed it all in a fast track!

Don't we all remember the old top players from months back, they saw this also coming and stopped when the crazyness started.

@ Finsfan,

Yes, I agree with what you say, but... In many games by investing RL money you can speed up things, and win certain special units, but all in an acceptable range. KA gives units which push you sky high, without doing any efforts for it.

Also GREE's new game "Dragon Realms" is built up different. by spending RL money, you can speed up the buildings, and refill energy/stamina etc, but at the moment it isn't giving you these crazy jumps! Maybe GREE will change that in time, but for the moment it's still acceptable.

Anyway, good luck to all of you :D
