Good day forummers,
This will be my first forum post in a long time and my final post.
Some of you will know me, other’s wont. For some context, I held the rank 1-3 power on all servers for about 50 or so patches. I developed nearly 20 tier lists and supported the community with sharing knowledge via Reddit, which I ran for 2 years, my Twitch Stream which I kept up for about 4-5 months and my Discord (where there are still nearly 500 very active users).
I had intended to write up a list of things I don’t enjoy about Disney Hero’s but I realised that I’ve given enough time to this “game” and so I am here to speak my mind and keep it brief.
PerBlue’s greed for money literally has no end. As a top supporter I have been stunned by their recent changes. The introduction of “the Hub” is the biggest, laziest slap in the face of a supporting community imaginable. 60 more chapters of the same old content sounds worse than torture to me and it’s literally 60 chapters too far. The recent notice of another Red level (R+19) is equally stunning. Who would have thought that a developer could be so extremely out of touch with their supporters – it literally amazes me.
Anyway, I’m here to tell those that feel trapped in the “game” because they have invested so much time and/or money that the best time to cut your losses is always now. Since stopping spending altogether I have felt freed from a huge burden. I’m now playing a completely f2p game on PC (Path of Exile) and have been reminded that a game should be fun not filled with anxiety. I am extremely happy with my decision.
PB want all our time and money, and they won’t stop pushing for it. They have had years to change their approach and yet they increase the cost to play patch after patch. I suggest you think carefully about how much more time and money you wish to sacrifice for PBs gain – I’ve made my decision and wish you all equal success.
All the best,
