thoughts on holdout from a fresh mind

Being told that "holdout is something for everyone" and "you have to try it", I figured initially that it was as difficult as invasion and onslaught and after trying the first base, it's every bit as difficult as the others mentioned with loot that is not even meant for a returning player who apparently doesn't even have the tools to play it seeing as I'm far behind in game.

Lesson learned don't listen to the hype

    With Holdout it is a difficult one. The first one is sort of easy as long as you have the right unit. I did the first one with 3.5 hours repair. I am going to attempt level 2 in a bit but will probably be repairing for longer. I am not even going to look at 3 if the right bases drop over the weekend as holdout is just for extra goodies.

    I don't see the value in doing it with all the hype and now that I know holdout isn't for me, I will not bother in the future.

    The prizes suck - the only thing it's good for is grinding it to trade in the tokens for TEX.

    It is not meant for everyone. It is designed to make the strong stronger. It's just like the game of money.... eventually the bubble will bust.

    No you don't do it. Why? Because in the end you will leave empty and accept failure.

    So if I do the first base and take a load of damage, it's worth every bit?

    Nier .... do not take this the wrong way, I mean no disrespect ..... but your profile says you are just a lv 11, but oddly it also says you are here 4 years ... if you are a lvl 11, please do not expect to be able to go and destroy, whatever you want to .....

    if the profile is wrong and you are a higher level, just complaining in every post will not make this better for you , again, I mean No disrespect in saying this ... I am just a bit weary of all the 'I can not do this or that' type of posts

    I am sure you are a fine person, and mean well, when you post like this, but it is not energy well spent

    I hope you can find a sector with good people that are willing to assist you, there are good and helpful people in many sectors

    Sir I respect your choice and commend you for having the ambition to play Cyber Commander. But the secret that nobody will easily admit is the Kracken is the key to earning logistics and tokens. Only players who have a chance at that are the players who will accept astronomical damage and the ones who have a surplus of money to coin the build and the upgrades. Bottomline is Holdout is not meant for us less fortunate individuals who Love this game so much.

    And what if I didn't have the tools to try a kraken base or are 4 million hp tanks with a jugg and herald enough to take 8 down. Hell I'm trying to get a foothold in the game and being told the hype (which was a flat out lie) that ithis has something for me and now I got 12 hours repair just to earn a token and unit I don't need

    You're missing the point, why should I do them: for tokens of units I shouldn't have any business having them or to try for units I need but can't get to
