The game is always evolving. Boss items will get stronger, soon there will be 200k attack and defense LE's. it's so new players can catch up to old players that have given boss tapping up. It's just business! For every player that stops buying gold a new player starts buying gold.
I'm not a gold buyer. But I support the gold buyers. It keeps the game going.
How people spend their time and money is up to them. I prefer to spend my time and money at the bar! Tapping girls is more exciting than tapping bosses to me. Cheers to gold buyers! I'll drink one for you..
