I think what happened is the interns realized that land is ultimately a 1 time purchase. If a player is desperate to open up the 2M or 3M slots, they'll buy the magic for it. a 1 time magic purchase for 1 parcel. $Whether it’s a 75 character or a 100 character limit, I wonder what happened in the game that made land so resources intensive? Or would these be changes they would have to make even if they weren’t giving us more land?
For anyone who started playing the game in the last year or two a little game history that might explain some of the OG players annoyance with the lack of land. It was around July 2017 when they added the Big Thunder expansion area with it’s 9 plots of land. To date, they have only opened 3 of them. It also looks like we’re approaching the 2 year anniversary of the other large land expansion to the right of the BTMRR area and left of Small World. I believe that was 9 plots of land and to date they’ve only opened 4. When they added those expansions, they promised us that they would be opening land on a regular schedule and as you can see that haven’t been the case.
So what happened? It resources were such a concern, it never made sense for them to add all those land expansions 2-3 years ago. Did they plan to the cut support to older devices a couple years ago and decided again it, or were told they couldn’t? Did they change the entire focus of the game at some point? Ultimately I know it doesn’t matter what their reasoning was, but I’d really find it interesting to know what happened.
Characters, on the other hand, have multiple purchase opportunities. There's the welcome purchase, which can be even more lucrative if the player is gambling on a loot crate, and all of the token/bundle purchases. $$$$$$
I'm an off/on mid-level player. I'll play for awhile. Level up some characters and then drop out for a bit. Consequently, I have a large list of characters/sets to finish and only 2M in magic. I don't mind that. I decided a long time ago to only level up the characters that I like. My orphan characters (only 1 in a set), movies that I haven't seen/didn't like (NBC/WIR), or the token drops are too big of a PITA (Shere Khan) will languish in lower level obscurity until I delete my account.
Yes, the 75 character limit will be detrimental unless the interns improve the drop rates. My Rajah, Lady, and Meeko drops are horrible. I happen to like those characters enough to fight for them...for now.
