There has to be some sort of discount or something going on. How do Chinese players tend to spend 100s and 100s of USD worth dollars to reach level 30, have over 50 or so divine items + flawless divine, and THEN have all their heroes above level 35? Ranging from 35-41. It's a lot of money spent on all those EXP cards, Ability Cards, etc. and even getting all these items. Now, it's all Chinese players who are reaching this. Not in any of the servers I've been to... not 1 person who is English or European even have all this.
There's something going on.
It is not the spending I have an issue with, but how is it possible that only Chinese players seem to be willing to spend exorbitant amounts of money? I'm on a server, not with this name, where there's a Skarn king who already spent thousands... We're four weeks in... Where the top players are around 300-350k, he is 550-600. Also, he gives money to players so they can grow faster. Yeah, it's that server with five Chinese kings. Where the purple king asks Chinese houses in other kingdoms to attack the foreign house in his kingdom so those cities can become Chinese.
Don't get me wrong, I do not hate the Chinese for having a completely different way of playing the game (nationalistic,) but we all know that they are ruining the game for the rest of us...
This is a great game, it really is, but the balance is completely wrong unfortunately.
