It just blows my mind that people have multiple maxed out characters. I've spent hundreds on this game and my highest level characters are still my level 11 Kendrix and Movie Zack assist, no one else is even close.
You would have to focus it all on 1 character I think.

I've also spent hundreds but I level 9 unique characters across my 3 teams

Did they change the matchmaker algorithm again? I just fought the same person three times in a row, and earlier tonight I fought the same person four times in a row. Kicked in the face by Zhane SO MANY TIMES.

I just started to understand the leveling characters part.

You can pay to be better equipped than me in this game? And I understanding correctly?

Like basically all app games, yes you can pay to get more in game currency to level up characters faster, or pay to try and get access to new characters faster. Nothing new really.

So itís nothing new to pay to be better than players who donít have money to spend on this Rock Paper Scissors app?

Randomizing purchases is one thing but I can spend money to outfight others guaranteed? I never lost until hitting VI and all of a sudden someone runs at me, can somehow hit me 10 times and I die. Even if press the correct block early they still go through it.

It went from a time waster to not fun at all.

Edit: and just like that I have a good streak again. Take that, deep pockets!

Money can make progression somewhat slightly faster, but it doesn't give any actual gameplay advantages, there is no paywall for 99% of the game. And thanks to the medal system, you'll never fight someone who has spent money to progress further in the game than you have. You should be able to make your way to at least Bronze league, probably Silver, on skill alone without spending a single dime on the game.

Worrying about the paywall only starts mattering when you've been playing for a full year, you're in Gold league trying to fight your way into Elite, and you're struggling to get characters over the last hump to max level with the bottom two rows of talents. Believe me, you're a long, LONG way from being affected by big spenders.

Itís true. Most of the whales are up in Gold and Elite. Good thing is there is now less incentive to medal drop.

Even then, there are levels within the levels. I'm solidly in gold yet I don't think I'll ever regularly make into elite. I'm perpetually stuck below 5900 medals. Once you get into 6k+ medals, you run into the serious spenders. I'm certainly not frugal when it comes to the game, but compared to most of the elites, I'm barely a moderate spender. These people drop hundreds at a time to get level 4 or 5 PREMIUM legendaries. There's just no competing against a level 4 Dai Shi. I don't have any maxed out characters, but most of my mains are within a level or two of being maxed out with full or almost full talent trees. Luckily, I don't really have any aspirations of being one of the top-tier players. I get all of the shards I need doing what I do. I don't need supercharged legendaries to get by.

Also you aren't allowed to complain about Zhane if you play any of the following:

Koragg
Ninjor
Kendrix
Udonna
V2 Green

Zhane is by far the best of that bunch now, they're all on pretty different levels.

Zhane > Green v2/Udonna > Koragg/Ninjor > Kendrix

Not in my experience. Koragg is easily still the best. A defender with a quick, unblockable strike > balanced with a quick, unblockable strike.

Idk what you whales do up there at the top... but Koragg and Ninjor dominate in my level.

And kendrix doesn't even follow the rules of the game with her blocking mid breaker bs, so she's definitely not below these characters.

And until they increase the EP for V2's bitch kick, he'll remain a pita

Kendrix Breaker->Block is too slow for Zhaneís sweep.

I will continue to complain about Zhane.

Tell ya what though, I'm super happy with Zeo Gold assist. That dude is beast. Love him with Zhane. I wish I didn't have to keep Kim in my team for the health though

Also, Original Green Ranger isn't bad. His launcher just sucks. If they changed it... he could be one of the top characters I think.

You can't say other characters are broken and then praise Zeo Gold assist. He's the most broken assist in the game. The reliability of his attack combined with its huge damage should cost 7 EP. There are only a few 7 EP moves in the game and none of them are anywhere near as reliable as Zeo Gold assist. You really can't compare v2's counter and Zeo Gold's attack, for instance.

Nah, you can't pull that with Zeo Gold. I don't think anyone would disagree that he's broken. You literally can't counter him unless you get lucky and preemptively throw a striker by chance.

And that's not to say I'm above using him. I will absolutely use him but that doesn't mean I don't think he's unfair. Just look at the Zeo-Time Force challenge we had this week. Zeo Gold spamming all over the place.

Zeo Gold is hands down the best assist in the game. Hell, he was already the best assist, then got even more valuable with 2.0 because every other breaker assist got nerfed but him. His damage isn't great, but reliable safe damage is more important than raw damage output. I'd be happy putting him at 6.

Ninjor and Koragg are both still highly dangerous, but their high EP usage is crippling. Both of them are really susceptible to getting hit by breakers after finishing a combo, since they won't have enough EP for a strikeout. They're also both REALLY hurt by a good predictive block, since attempting a combo costs half their EP. Koragg also lost a lot of damage output now that he can't dash forward after Shield Bash anymore, so comboing into a special only does half damage outside the corner. They're both still good characters, definitely somewhere near the top, but they're way more balanced now than they were pre-2.0.

And yeah, Kendrix's breaker>block isn't 100% guaranteed on anyone with quick reactions, the "trap" only works if the breaker makes contact before the strikeout attempt begins its striking animation. It's a surefire trap against slower strikes like Trent's 3-hit combo or even other Kendrix's 5-hit combo, but quick ones like Zhane's launcher are totally free and clear of it. And hell, even if her breaker>block trap was guaranteed, she still has to work WAAAAY harder than any top tier character for her damage, since she has no easy combo starter and poor damage output in general.

I never said Zhane wasn't unfair. I said he was top 5 just the other day. His 3 point strike is ridiculous. I'm just saying complaining about Zhane is ridiculous when most of you play characters that are just as broken as him. (just in other ways)
