Hey Addicts it’s time to gather your thoughts….. I won’t give you a penny for them but I would appreciate hearing them. As I want to chat about the new game dynamic that was recently released, team battles.
Now that both battles have been and gone I wanted to ask you to share some feedback on what you thought of the battles. So please use the comments to tell us what you thought of the new feature, what you liked, what you didn’t like, what you thought of the Battle 2 changes and of course what you’d do different.
These were fierce but supposed to be fun, but Battle 1 had a bitter sweet ending if you backed the losing team. However after feedback from that battle TinyCo immediately made some changes adding an additional way to win the Battle 2 main prize through a side Questline.
For me in Week 1 I looked at it as an extra, with a 50/50 chance of winning a new costume. I felt the odds were better than a mystery box and taking part cost me nothing. I could contribute or not to the totals and still have a 50% chance of a prize. In Week 2, I was delighted to see they increased the odds of winning a little by offering a 2nd way to win the prize, but this would mean playing more actively by clearing Paparazzi. But for me the main point in the difference between the two battles was TinyCo listened and made the change very quickly.
I also like fact they are bringing new mechanisms in, even if they are from one of their other games, i think this is a good indicator the game has a future. This is good to know as over at our sister site TSTO Addicts there is a sense of doom as Tapped Out has had no new content in nearly 2 months and very little else in the 3 months that preceded those. Personally I think both games will continue but TinyCo/JamCity are treating their long term players a lot better than EA are at this time, as this shows they are listening even if they don’t always get things right.
But that’s enough about my thoughts, now it’s over to you. Oh and I’ll have the usual End Of Event poll and post up later for your general event thoughts, this is really to chat about the battle formats.
