Hi everyone, NintIce2000 here. Sorry it’s been a long time since I posted, but I’m here today with this message because I’ve been made aware of some controversies surrounding this game regarding treatment of players as well as the frequency of content. I am a VERY big fan of this game and respect PerBlue, but I of course don’t excuse them of the mistakes they make, so today I am going to give my two cents on the situation as well as provide a note for the community. Here we go.
Let’s get the negative out of the way first. As much as I love this game with all of my heart, I do still recognize that it has it’s flaws. The most notable one being that the roster is very…VERY unbalanced. This issiue is a common thing with games containing huge rosters, but DHBM is probably the worst case of this, to the point that some characters are clearly better than others which cause competitive elitists to spam the crap out of the same teams over and over again(People in Server 22 are ESPECIALLY guilty of this-_-). As a result I do get significantly less enjoyment out of the competitive modes, as well as Creep Surge and City Watch as levels are seemingly based on other people’s teams. The next issue is honestly a bit opinionated, but at the same time I do understand. I personally DON’T MIND the monthly level cap increase because PerBlue at least has those Team Catch Up Challenges which gives you tons of Stamina items and Badges when you reach the required level, and to take advantage of this I try not to max out my level before the next cap increase so I can get the prizes. So on that note, yes the constant cap increases can be annoying for lower leveled players, but PB at least HELPS YOU catch up. HOWEVER, like I said before I do see the problems with this. I myself made a secondary account in Server 2 to test out the newest characters when they come out, and I almost CAN’T enjoy playing on that account because some of the modes such as Invasion are IMPOSSIBLE for me. Not only that but it constantly divides the F2P and P2W players by forcing you to pay up in order to get more stamina to power up. Last but not least, the final point I want to make links up with the last one, and that is the notice of an increase of FtN Contests that have been happening. Do you remember the last time we had a Contest based on Infected Levels? Well neither do I because FtW is chosen CONSTANTLY!!!. It is SO FREAKING ANNOYING, it forces more people to pay money to win big, and it downright makes PerBlue greedy. I don’t like considering them a greedy company, which I’ll get back to later, but moves like this are especially shady and does not make your reputation look good as a developer.
For this next segment, I want to bring the fact that PerBlue DOES care about it’s fans into the light. DHBM is WAAAAAAAY more F2P friendly than other mobile games with microtransactions, especially Disney Emoji Blitz and COUGH COUGH Mario Kart Tour. We get tons of free stuff from Invasion, Daily Sign Ins, the Weekly Quest and especially Contests EVERY SINGLE WEEK. Think of another mobile game that provides that many goodies to you weekly/daily. PerBlue even gives us free stuff when there’s an error with the game! Don’t you remember that JUST RECENTLY we got FREE MODS OF EVERY TYPE because they knew about the Invasion Rotation Error? Finally, PerBlue just made an ENTIRE THREAD saying that they KNOW about the problems you have with this game and WANT TO FIX THEM.
This leads into my final segment for this post. Guys…STOP COMPLAINING ok? Game Development is very hard and TAKES TIME. The State of The Game post was A MONTH AGO and people are already claiming that the developers are fibbing just because the last big update didn’t address them. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Guys they KNOW about the issues and like I said Game Development TAKES TIME. So if you expect PerBlue to just snap away all of the issues on day 1 of the new month, well I’m sorry but prepare to be disappointed. I have been playing since September of last year and have seen the game improve SIGNIFICANTLY since then. Did it take them 1 week? NO. Because instead of stressing about including everything in one massive patch ASAP, they take time to tackle the problems bit by bit in order to provide a clean experience. Quality over Quantity people. If you want to leave the game now, it’s perfectly fine. But please stop pressuring PerBlue to meet your demands on the dot. It only makes you look entitled, toxic and downright ungrateful.
In conclusion, Disney Heroes Battle Mode like EVERY GAME IN EXISTENCE NO MATTER HOW GOOD OR BAD THEY ARE, has it’s flaws. However, PerBlue knows about said flaws and are working hard to fix and address them. I apologize for the rant earlier but it kind of saddens me how people raise the stakes on the developers with the recent updates. I’m not saying that I DISAGREE with you, as like you I want this game to have success for many years to come, but harassing and demonizing the developers is NOT the way to go. I have confidence that WITH TIME, Disney Heroes Battle Mode will once again be a place for all types of players to have fun, and will continue to give us more content to enjoy.
@Polaris, I would appreciate it if you forwarded this message to the staff, as well as another post I’m going to make in the furture talking about more issues i want to see resolved that I didn’t address here. But I want you to know this. I am not making this blog to harass or yell at you, but rather to show that I am a passionate player that wants you guys to succeed. Thank you so much for all of your hard work to make this game the best that it can be, and I look forward to what you have in store for 2020 and beyond.
And for everyone else, please stop harassing the developers. Making everyone happy, especially in games like this, is not easy and threatening to leave the game will only make them feel bad.
Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you all have a good day. Pice
