Gamers did not like the changes in the value and power of certain bonuses, as well as the rejection of the object, which collectively spent a lot of money. Yet all will not do that, players are no longer going to waste in Modern War money, said Barnes. Gamers require developers to abandon the innovations and to return money to players, making the “disadvantage” of buying.
