  • Tournaments

    Tournaments have become all about who can buy the most power or troops and is driving many veteran players away from DOA. DOA should stop selling troops so often and so cheap and get back to the reason people started playing this game. It is catered to the 30 to 40 people in each realm that spend thousands of dollars but is chasing away the other 70 percent that actually play the game the right way.

    I understand the concern, but just keep in mind there is no "right way" to play the game. Some like to battle, some farm resources and build up, others take down walls etc. The fact is any troop tourney or power tourney that allows box opening or use of speedups for fast troop training will always remain a ruby players win, it's a sad fact. The alliance tournaments negate it a bit by rewarding entire alliances, but some other type, something different needs to be used altogether to bring those back. Just keep in mind, just because you play one way, doesn't make that the right way and the others who don't spend much or spend no $,'s just a matter of opinion...some only enjoy being the top player via money, others prefer not spending. There's a happy medium somewhere...kabam just hasn't found it yet.

      When people like me who spend from $100 to $500 a month are leaving because there is no work involved in regards to power gain then its a problem, I understand there are people that buy speeds to train but you still have to farm resources, the small amount of people that spend $100 to $500 a day are the ones that are being catered too now. when all you have to do is buy these cheap boxes to release during tournaments and gain 3 to 4 million in power its not right to those that have farmed rss to train our way to our power. I used to spend money on speeds but I still had to do work. I have seen the top 10 in power in my realm, all who have done some work for their power, drop out of top 10 to people who buy their power and now most of them have stopped playing this game. That tells me that Kabam doesnt want a lot of people playing their games just the ones that spend the most money.
