Are you frigging kidding me?
Well, it seems netmarble has decided to go down the route of having you take up gambling with your money, similar to other nefariously greedy companies.
I switched over from playing COC to future fight for similar design decisions by that company.
Playing future fight was a pleasure as it was decidedly “not pay to win”. Sure, you could pay money if you wanted to increase your progression rate, or pay to unlock certain characters, however, you knew exactly what you were paying for and what to expect! You knew exactly what your money was buying and what your results would be.
Seems the newest patch ( soon as it is actually up and playable ) will be strictly a roll of the dice for a slim possible chance of actually obtaining that what your paying to obtain, which is completely garbage and totally insane. A strict cash grab plain an simple designed to make you spend much more money than otherwise, period, in other words “gambling”.
I’ve been spending money on future fight, unlike COC, as until now it was a fair system, but this new update has changed all of that. Currently my account is at a VIP level of 5 and more than halfway to 6. All that stops now, I’ll not pay out another dime from my wallet to promote such underhanded and greedy tactics. I’ll still play the game, but as strictly as a FTP player from this point forwards and boycotting any future “in game” purchases of any sort.
What a way to mess over your player base and and otherwise pretty decent game netmarble! Way to go!
Edit: per Netmarble’s weak and lame response concerning introducing gambling for randomly obtaining characters. Sorry Developers, but introducing biometrics into the processor is an attempt to hide the fact that this design decision is flawed.
Why for instance is the boss at the last stage Antiman, but you receive black panther bios? Er...what?!? Pure deception to make you buy your loot RNG gambling box!
Still remaining a FTP player until you fix this fiasco and allow these characters to be either farmed or at the very least be installed into the monthly paywall bios subscription as other characters are.
Final edit / thoughts for now: Anyone is of course, free to do as they wish and see fit. However, fostering and promoting a game with gambling mechanics, that is played by not just adults, but also teens and older children is just plain reprehensible. These are game mechanics designed to drain your wallet, plain and simple.
No resolution as yet, but Bill Rosemann of Marvel has become involved so that’s a good thing, for now though my rating of a 1 stands and staying FTP and
boycotting any purchases of any sort.
So as of today 12-12-17 Netmarble has said they are promising to somehow fix this lousy update, but have given no timeline or specifics on when or how such fixes will be implemented.
Words and promises are easy, but for me, until I see something actually happen I’m remaining FTP. I’ve been fooled once too many times and actions are what count not words. Soon as actual game changes are implemented, then I’ll change my rating back to 5* and restart my bio subscription and Stark stash.
12-16-17. Still no in-game content fix or resolution. I’d give a new rating of zero if the app store allowed such.
