Game play created

Seems like the game has become, blah. Havent spent any real cash the past 3 weeks, have done everything else, partiapated in contests, but I seem to be falling further and further behind. All the new heroes that have come out, if course cant get unless you purchase diamond crates, plus farming the gear and now level increases. Am I the only one in this situation or are there others? Just wondering if it’s time to go back to candy crush.
