Is the game getting better or worse?

    I think the game is trending towards better. I started from the beginning as well, but got tired of the lack of new content, so I abandoned the game for more than a year. What brought me back were the new Garbage Pail Kids trading card sets (35th Anniversary and Chrome 3). I was happy to see new characters (Gassy Gus, Phil Grim, and Sal Monella) show up shortly after I returned and I’m happy that the game continues to add new ones.

    I do agree it’s a pain that sometimes you have to spend a significant amount of money to get the new characters in time before they disappear for months. I do wish there’s a way for players to gain those characters simply by playing quests/battles.

    I remember not being able to max out on junk levels because some missing items/ingredients never existed. Battles would glitch more frequently. No improvements were made to the game for several months at a time. And the forum was really dead.

    I, too, am still waiting on the extra stages to show up for us to complete the achievements and to max out Adam Bomb. And I can’t believe that the “Coming Soon” section is still the same since the game launched. I also think that Arena still needs to be figured out. I haven’t liked any of the versions.

    I haven’t spent any money on the game because of all the glitches and near the beginning of the game, I thought the game was dead, too, and was going to be taken down. However, I do spend large sums of money buying the actual cards, so I hope that the game gets partially funded that way.

    What's wrong with 321 or 144?

    They are on levels that have never been available to get. It makes the game look incomplete.

    I think the game is in a better place than it was but it still feels incomplete and buggy.

    It's great that the forums are being more used and yes the game is more playable but that's only because the bugs were so bad, like the lack of the right items etc.

    I spent money at the start on Gems as it's the only way to make any progress. I would buy the cards if they were out in the UK but they aren't available over here. But now it feels like it only the rich kids can buy and the rest get left behind.

    As for the rest of the game, Adam Bomb is the most famous GPK and it really should be able to max him out, just seems a missed opportunity. Coming Soon could be used for the up coming event's or New Characters.

    Playing for new characters would be better, even if it took 200 battles, least you know you have a chance to get it and of course the main thing is to actually play the game.

    Yes, give people the option to buy if they can't be bothered to play.

    But this system at the mo, just rewards people who pay.

    Arena still needs to be fixed, this way is only better in that anyone can progress up the leaderboard quicker and fairer. But then in the old Arena, if you won 9 or 10 out of 10 battles, you knew you would be in the top 50. Now it can range from anywhere from 10th to 200th as it's just so random nowadays.

    Hey there Ringo. Wasn’t sure any of us oldies still played. I lost my account for a while and just recovered it. I lost my BigWeasel name and it became Joshee. I guess I can live with that. Anyway, my answer… the game is 100X better now that developers are updating. I love the new mode. It made it so I can finally upgrade Adam. I do miss the old days where 5 of us ruled the arena, but I understand the need for the masses to be able to enjoy too.

    Hi there BigWeasel/Joshee, 

    I just wrote the post as I was just frustrated with certain parts of the game, as to me it just looks incomplete.

    But in general, it is a much better game, certainly after the shaky start it had, especially the 6 months where there was no updates at all. From then to now, it is a different beast and better for it.

    I agree with Adam though, will take about 2-3 months to max him out, just need them to have Pink Lemon Nadine available to be able to so far complete the set.

    The arena was much more enjoyable then, as at least you knew roughly where you would finish, now it can be anywhere from 50 to 500 for me, as I'm not US based.

    But we all want it to be a successful game, even if I won't ever finish in the top 20 again!

    It's better. Way better. Except for Shark Attack Zach's card art. But that's not this game's fault. His animation slowing the entire game down is though. I think this card would have fit better with the movie theme:

    And if you complain about the cost of getting cards early, have you never heard of "whales" and how they fund the game for the rest of us?

    It takes some gems, but first place is still possible. I got it a few days ago. It takes some perfect timing though.

    My big problem with that is I’m trying to get gems. I waste as many gems that I end up earning or losing gems in the process. I really wish they’d get rid of the gem cost to fight.
