So after a few weeks of not buying my way through this game, I finally realize why F2P players and others guard their gems so much. BAD DRAWS, EAT IT Having a settle for dupes and sub standard relics after spending so much time devoted to the game is nuts. I have let the entire summer fest go without, trying to get things by buying gems and the rates for success are horrible. I understand why now, when players wait and wring their hands over drawing options that may or may not work out. I will always play even if not everyday or every events cycle, because I'm invested too much in the game, but I WILL have to become a better player , instead of relying on good equipment to win. Real players deserve the rewards of the game, while collectors like me, are just spectators. I salute you champions and only look into the abyss into which you dive and say, " Good Luck dude, I'm not going down there, so have a drink for me ,when you win"
