@Evil Crusader I see what you mean, but still, that could work even better with a more convenient money-gems balance. I mean, not only whales would buy gems, but also medium spenders. I'm afraid this game lacks of a hierarchical structure of spenders: that is, only whales can buy gems, and the other players are free to play. If it would be worth, I would definitely buy some gems, and other players likewise. But at present, I am discouraged. Nevertheless, I'm grateful I can play for free at a competitive level. This is the great thing about this game. @Radical I'm sorry about that. It definitely seems that you pulled for many bad banners. On my side, I did the same mistake at the beginning, but luckily I realized pretty soon that I should have spent my gems on specific, well-thought targets. Some people on this forum helped me a lot, as well as looking at Altema and Dissidia Database, that gave me a precise idea of what the future will bring us and of which are the units that will be strong for a long time.
