In all honesty, this is not nearly as bad as Marvel Future Fight, Netmarble's golden standard for greed and complete lack of content. MFF has added literally nothing to do since Galactus giant boss (the epic quests are nothing but text and resource spending) and keeps coming up with new ways to make you waste resources and new OP characters that have zero point outside of an awful PvP. They literally plan the new characters based on who's going to need the most resources at the point you have the least of them.
In KoFAS, between the Epic Quest and the Hell dungeon, there's a real sense of progression and things to actually do every day - Epic Quest is over and done once you've got all the main rewards, but it still takes a long time. Except now you get a new reason to play them again if you want to awaken the AS characters (but that, once again, takes weeks and weeks just to build up one character). The new awakening system requires you to keep rolling over and over at random without aiming for a specific character anymore, just take multiple copies of everything you can get, but at the same time they're also giving out a lot more rubies. We'll see how that goes in a couple months, if everyone just becomes bone dry of rubies, but so far it's still way better than MFF.
On the long run, if you can't get multiple copies of specific characters, you should still get copies of other characters, and a few FES as well, if you use the pick-up selection for characters and cards. So the last piece of that puzzle is having a way to level up the characters you do get, because it would suck to get stuck at an awakening threshold on your strongest character without getting a new copy of him to awaken, while being unable to significantly level up the characters that you do get new copies of. Ideally you should still be able to re-run previous tiers of the dungeon with lower leveled awakened units that you want to bring up to speed. It should be a reason to finally build those Takumas and Andys and Kyos and get them stronger than your best FES !
(I haven't touched the imprint stones yet because with how rare the stones and the hammers are, it's completely irrelevant to me right now, we'll see how that goes in a couple months too)
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
