Stop annoying people. Constructive criticism should be always welcome, as long as it’s written properly and without accusation. Line grinded for weeks for a lv 10 scatter, which was nullified a few day later with the update, so the fact that he’s defending the update actually says a lot.
let’s look at what you wrote:
True, but not related to the new update, and it’s something the devs fixed.
True again, and it’s to be the biggest issue. Although for the way you write about it it seems you didn’t pay for gems, so let those who paid and CF support deal with it themselves.
No idea what you’re saying. What’s a powerup, a module? why are difficult to understand? this sentence doesn’t say anything constructive.
You would know about energy if you red the changelog that gets in your face every time you load the game. Every major game change in every game require some effort form the user, because they have to relearn how part of the game works. that does not mean that the game is not ‘simple’ . In fact, the game is now simpler because:
Simpler interface. The modules are rearranged and neatly organized, less popups onscreen, less info displayed. The whole upgrade system is removed, so nothing can be simpler than that right?
Simpler to play. Unless you were really enjoying squeezing your eyes at the start of each game, just to look at the small numbers below each module of each player, convert those numbers to the corresponding tournament level just to know who has the most powerful modules, I’d say the way the modules are de-leveled now makes this part of the game simpler and easier to play .
Simpler to learn. One of the biggest reasons for the upgrade is to make the game more approachable for new players. the way it was before the game seem unfair and pay-to-win to some of the newbies. Even though that was not true, it was their impression since they were being crushed by players with modules higher than their own. This upgrade returns the CF to a purely skill based game, rather than a skill and upgrades based game.
About the the Energy, it’s simply the new CF currency that replaced the coins. Of course, right now the currency systems feels a bit redundant since first you buy gems, then you use gems to get energy, than you use energy to unlock the modules. It was created like this because later on when customization is available you’ll be able to use gems or other things than energy.
I agree with you that pools could be used more often, but pools are good only for certain questions, like which graphic is better or for deciding the tournament time, not something as complex as a new gameplay update. This is too complex for the average player to decide, and should be left for the developers to decide ( unless you want to become a shareholder of the company, then you might get a saying in it )
Overall, play the new update for a few weeks before judging it and let’s see, you might even like it .
