Still playing and I can't finish the Lost Valley level.
I was so close the last time (level 47)

Also funny story

You can sell your pistols but you can't recover them after that's why I only have the Chakram for the game (I have upgraded the weapon to the level 15.

Well, you can get them back from a crate, but of course, the chances are random. I was lucky enough to get 2 uncommon pistols from a crate and a rare blueprint to craft a pair of rare pistols and that's helped a lot. I would have preferred to get a rare staff as that's clearly the best weapon, even after they slightly nerfed it in the update. The weapon's projectiles just homes in on enemies and it's so satisfying

The beauty of the staff was mostly in the spread shot powerup. Which was heavily nerfed. Now you basically need to be in melee range of an enemy to get benefit from that powerup, which is not a good idea in Level 6 with those deadly melee enemies.

But yeah, I'd still take a nerfed staff that can at least somewhat reliably hit those annoying rats over any other weapon.

Shooting your weapon and constantly missing is not fun, hence the staff. I personally think that the other weapons should be buffed, not staff nerfed. I mean unless they want to make their game less fun which is hopefully not the case.

As for the gold cheat yeah it works, I tried it. But it's too tedious to open and close the game constantly (at least to me), and besides, the gold was never the issue in this game for me. Other stuff is always lacking. Pre-purge I had a million gold as well with mostly nothing to spend it on. Would be cool if we could convert currency or something.

The fact that powerup choice on reset is always different and the wheel of fortune is predetermined is kinda bs. Always knew that these games don't really do "chance" with these types of things. Everything is predetermined and the stuff with lowest reward surely has a higher priority over the higher rewards. In a perfect world all choices would have equal % of being selected, but that is not the case here.

Yeah, R.I.P spread shot powered staff

I agree about the gold. They could make more uses for it. Perhaps they could allow us to buy crates with it or missing resources? Yeah, you can do that with gems already but why not give us the option? Either spend 50 gems on this or 100,000 coins. It's true gold is required to upgrade everything but never by itself, another resource is always needed, much rarer resources, so our collected gold ends up gathering virtual dust, so to speak.

While we are on the topic of upgrades, does anyone else feel it's slightly unfair that even after grinding and gaining experience to "level up", you still need to spend runes and gold to actually level up? I don't really understand this mechanic. Can you imagine if in a RPG game like FF, you defeat monsters in fight after fight, and you finally level up, but wait - you now need to spend in-game currency to unlock the benefits of something you've already done? I don't get it. Right now, I'm level 23 out of 33 - that's 10 levels of experience that I played for but they mean nothing because I don't have enough runes? By the time I even collect enough to to get to level 25 or something, I could be level 35, and so on. It will take ages before I catch up. What is the point? There has to be a more balanced, fairer way around this. Perhaps lessen the amount of runes required, or simply get rid of them? Just let us be that level we fought for? Just throwing around ideas here.

Yeah I agree, I was always against that idea of basically you level up to gain access to actually leveling up. It's a horrible "feature" in any game that has it if you ask me. The outfit should level up once Lara does. Leveling up literally does nothing except that it gives you 10 gems which are nothing.

My Lara is level 38 now and my outfit level is 27 I think. And the price to upgrade it past that is just absurd. I can't even imagine how expensive it'll be on higher levels.

So yeah at this point I just keep leveling up just for the sake of that number increasing with no other benefits to it. And I doubt it's too late now for them go to back and revamp that feature.

Anyone else having trouble with the game today? I keep getting a connection error followed by a crash. Maybe their servers are down?

Yup, me too. Looks like someone did something on a Friday that they shouldn't have and now no one is "in the office" cause it's the weekend to fix it.

Looks like there's been another update. The, uh, Whale Flukes have a different effect now - "increase the healing points through Red orbs."

Whatever that means.

I've been thinking about that too and I believe they mean those green hearts you get from defeating enemies and bosses, the ones that heal you. Although I have no idea why they'd call them "red orbs"

Huh odd. No update for me. Cleared the game cache, checked PlayStore no update. The relics are as they always were.
