>Don't want to spend my time making numbers go up. >Game might not be fun for me even after doing so, anyway. >Have better things to do with my time. If you don't want to grind, if you don't think it will turn out to be fun eventually, if you don't like the game style, mechanics, time investment requirement, or any other aspect, wth are you waiting for? Buy yourself a football and go play outside or whatever. The early game is hard, yes, get over it. But let me tell you smt: getting maxed lvl 50s is not the end game. There is not a definitive end game. Do you want to evolve/max each silver and bronze, do you want to evolve/max all parasouls and bellas, or who or whatever you decide to do, that will be your own end game! So it's doesn't get easier bc it's already over. Quite the contrary, it's hard but it's fun when it starts and it just gets better and better the more you play it. So get over it, bc there won't be an "Easy difficulty" for those who don't want to spend their oh so precious time grinding. Don't expect everyone to stop what they're doing just so they can start building ladders for you to reach the point which we all had to climb for.
