That's because VIP players lvl up very fast... You find the game expensive? Dont pay! Play as Non-Vip. You will not lvl up like crazy, so you could upgrade your heroes easier. Of course, you will be left behind by the VIP elite, dont spect to be at the top of the top... But who cares? Playing free gives a greater challenge, at thats what makes the game fun. Making the game easier also makes it boring. Dont forget that a game's proposite is to be fun. If you are wanting to be The Best, be more productive and use that ambition in other aspects of your life. So, join the hippie side, dont pay, play just for fun.
