EDIT 1: smilegate is killing the game. Getting good gear is near impossible, content feels more like a chore and is not rewarding at all, new content is lackluster, auto battling is trash. I like this game, I really do, but smilegate is slowly killing it.
EDIT 2: Smilegate has made auto battling good now, however the rest of my complaints are still valid. I recently quit because of the garbage gear I was getting, despite the improvements to the equipment conversion. RNG rolls for gear are just frustrating, and it's not fun when you grind the same stage over a thousand times.
