- Weapon: Plasma Beam Rifle
Well, I never even encountered a single boss that gave the weapon medals as rewards. So I'm not sure if thats better or worse than what you guys are going through. On one hand, I didn't lose anything. On the other hand, I was completely stonewalled from having the opportunity to get them in the first place. I said a few days ago that I was going in with lowered expectations to not be disappointed. But the developers threw a few curveballs that not only disappointed but have completely ticked me off.
For starters, saving cubes on the lower bosses(the sunstorms and skywarps) was a deliberate strategy of mine going into the episode. The idea was to save all of my resources for the "big fish". If the idea that we are kicking around is true and they scaled available bosses based on some sort of criteria then I got completely screwed over. Like Monuo said, that basically gives the people with better cards an insurmountable advantage. So I either have to dump some money into their random space bridge and hope I get lucky enough to get cards worthy of having or I have to dump all of my saved up resources on lower bosses so that I can get access to the tougher bosses with bigger points and rewards. But, oh yeah, now I have no resources left to fight the bosses except for the 3 cubes I get every couple hours. I guess I can spend more money on cubes too.
The gold medals have not been fixed (I guess they aren't broken to the developers) and its almost insulting how bad they are. Why are they the best medal available when all you get from them are 2s?
If they screw people over on the weapon medals, I can't even describe how foul that would be. I have to believe that, while you wouldn't have access to them during the regular game, surely they would still be there the next time the episode bridge opens. Also, why are they gold weapon medals when there are no silver ones? I would love feedback on the weapon medals. Did anybody get any 4s out them of or did they any yield 2s as well?
In summary, I, quite literally, got nothing out of this episode. I pulled no good cards out of the bridge. I pulled no new cards that I need for my cyberdex out of the bridge. While I did get the episode Cliffjumper and get some cards leveled thanks to the exp boost, I gained nothing as a result because everybody got the Cliffjumper and everybody leveled their cards and since I got no new rares or super rares, all the cards I leveled everybody already has and has them leveled anyway.
To me, it seems like every change they have made to this game recently, both in episode and out, has been for the sake of lining their pockets and not for the good of the game. You know what, fine, thats their right. Its their game and they have a right to make a living. But I don't have to play it. Everything they have done lately has completely drained the enjoyment out of this game for me. I'm done playing it until the next episode or whenever they make some big changes to it.
Man, I need to take a breath.
