Boom Beach: The Problem with the Game

In this post, I’m not going to create a giant rant about p2win type of games or features. The thing about Boom Beach is that you can play without paying a single dime.

Fortunately, I managed to get both down just by the skin of my teeth. We failed the other day mostly due to how a former member did not take the operation serious enough. It was pretty bad and evident that I was forced to kick him out. In truth though, it’s like anything: if you want to get ahead, you can’t afford to have slackers holding you down.
