So again these "Feedback" threads are generally a requested solicitation from IGG for members to render their opinions, however in this case it is more of a voluntary offering of member's opinions.
I'll start, there were some subtle changes to the rewards system that I noticed so far such as; the first reward bonus in WG & Mesa, a slight shift in the rewards for ThunderGod's Gift and Pirate's Booty as well as the slight increase of fame and honor badges for GuildWars. However; I personally feel that these slight (although appreciated) changes do not begin to effectively scratch the surface of what is needed to balance the game.
In an effort to prevent a wall of text, what I am basically trying to express is that while I personally understand that most of IGG's vehicles are primarily P2P, "Castle Clash" was released as an F2P friendly environment and as such all resources available should be obtainable in amounts sufficient for continous growth in a reasonable timeframe via normal gameplay.
Not only is this not possible, most of the newest resources not only require insane amounts for max leveling, but are not available ingame except via purchases. Throwing 1 lvl 9 Talent Rune here and there does not meet the requirement when it takes 10 to bump one talent of a (6) hero team. Unfortunately this is not an isolated incident, Karmic Rocks, Break Through Stones, Gold Essence / Books, Soulstones for newer heroes all are almost non-exsistent except via purchase or as part of the excessive bonus gifts for purchases.
The F2P community clearly understands that there should be a benefit to financially supporting the game as well as that it is that financial support that faciliates their existence in the Castle Clash world, however that does not mean that the concerns of the F2P community should not be addressed. It is the co-existence of both communities that has made this game a 5+yr success, and I dare say many would hope to see it around for a long time to come, however that can only happen with proper management.
Sadly, these are not issues that have not been brought to the attention of IGG as evidenced by the previous "[Suggestion] Rewards - Feedback". Having said that I invite everyone to voice your opinions and concerns, hopefully that will be heard and effectively addressed.
