Pay to win is still there, it's just leveled out a bit more than it was. If someone throws out level 15+ pins at me, I'm still not likely going to get very far laugh

I get eaten alive by everything, this update just plain sucks. I've gone from silver rank down to mid bronze, and I'm still being run over. Actually feels MORE P2W now than it did before, as they've leveled the playing field so that strategy has much less affect.

Ya I'm in that boat too. My old strategy I can not get a win even with people 2 levels below me but their pins still dominate me. Getting stomped left and right. I know a draw is better cog wise but pisses me off getting draw after draw. Wasted 15 minutes to get nothing for it.

Is there some special reward for finishing the season in Gold or just reaching it? I could have sworn you got some phenomenal reward for reaching Gold but could be wrong. Just wondering?

From what I know you get a reward depending on what arena you're in at the end of the season. Not reached, but in. Could be wrong there though.

this FTP formula for mobile games is no diff from any other the mobiles games out there, they all suck your money if you want to be the best and have the best stuff, most all the other mobile games are like this, the problem is this has xbox live achievements and the TA community want a full completion, but this game is built for ppl who play mobile games and love to spend money on them, that was the goal. the achievement side was prob just added in because its a microsoft studio, but damn sure wasnt built for the xbox community

In these games you have to level up in the league that give you the best rewards. Derank.

On prior season ends you got the rewards based on what you were currently in.
So when there is only a few days left, if you hit gold, just wait.

For reference, Gold rank got roughly 6.5k coins, 31-32 epics, couple of hundred each on rare and common

I hope they improved it now the game went live, because if you have to wait a week, you'll get more from farming streaks at a lower range.

As far as how this relates to Seriously Pop.... you don't have to complete all requirements in a single season do you? Because i just hit Gold but I'm not even close to hitting all the other requirements.

No you are good. You got the +1 in the bar for it and now you just grind the rest. It would be nice to have Horde waves and Kills under Statistics like Wins, but what do I know?

Thanks for the confirmation. I still need a ton of wins but at least now I don't have to stress over every loss.

I'm mostly a console player, I don't care much for mobile games, and I thought I was immune to them. But I was wrong, this game got its hooks on me and hasn't let go. All they had to do is make (or copy) and addictive game, add a Gears paint, some achievements and voila. I even spent some money early on (Welcome Bundle, one of the Arena Bundles and some of the cheaper crystals). But what can I say, I love this game, even if I heavily dislike some aspects of it.

* * *

I hit gold league recently and it was fine for a couple of days: win some, lose some, draw a lot. But one night I played several matches with people way higher level than me. That put me firmly into Silver again. Yesterday I played a little bit and managed to get to gold again. Now I have to ponder if I keep playing to get daily chests (win streak is mostly out of the question for me in Silver/Gold league) and risk not being in Gold by season end or leave it be for a week hoping the reward is better than what Drazer76 mentioned. The pins are not bad, but 6.5K coins doesn't seem particularly enticing. Or perhaps I shouldn't play late at night.
