Unlike Nexon, I'm glad that Zlonggames are adapting based on the complains that players are giving back to them: stop releasing every new SSRs every week, doing a rerun of awaken units for the past 2 months so f2p can save up their classifies contracts, and giving us the positive changes made in kr server as early as possible (like the new stats, ui, and other interfaces).
Now, the part that I feel f2p will not be able to compete, after they made pulling more f2p friendly, is the gears set. The difficulty in turning 1 maze piece into cdr set had costed me over 200+ gold set binary (those costed me over $100), and I did not even get a single cdr set from that lol. I want to be upfront about this but Ive already spent over $1000 on this game and my gears quality is nowhere near the top 200 in pvp.
I also feel like binary tunings are rigged. If there is 1/18 chances of getting something different, you would expect my anti-sniper piece would be something else entirely if I try to reroll it 2 or 3 times in a row, right? That's not the case since every 20 gold set binary I used to change every anti set to something else, it always somehow remains the same for every first 2-3 tries I invested. What's worst is, I fear that the chances to get the exact same sub (with blue binaries) and set (with gold binaries) are not 1/18. It's as if they turned the 1/18 into a gacha banner for cdr and atkspd set. So if they want to false advertised the 1/18 chance, they better add a pity for binary as well.
Like legit, you can barely get 7-10 gold set binaries per week. And knowing that 200 doesnt get you what you want. We're looking at near 30 weeks for f2p to have 210 gold set binary to still not get cdr set on one of their maze set if they're just as unlucky as me. It's honestly a scam for both small spender and f2p.
