Simple idea so that the hoards of players who are not named “Zero” have a chance at winning something decent in the Challenge Event (oh, and congrats to Zero for winning all three categories, beg/int/adv).
Have classes/groups, just like in in a Marathon race (they use age groups) - something like AGE: 18-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49.
While one person does win the overall marathon, only a person in the age group can win the age group. No person can will all the groups. No man can win the women’s category, no woman the men’s, and only a wheelchair participant can win the wheelchair group.
How about having something similar for the Challenge Events? Group players by their level
e.g. <20, 20-25, 26-30, 31-35, 36-40, 41-45, 45+. Each group could have it’s own set of rewards.
It should not be difficult to show group ranking and the global ranking, should people care. You could vary the difficulty of the challenge event by the groups, as well. Which would be awesome for participants, since very few, if any, of the members in my alliance with player level in the mid-20’s were able to complete the challenge on intermediate, only 3 of 30 people completed advanced (we are a 7/8* titan alliance of score 88,000)
for me, this challenge event was the least fun of any of the 4-5 of them that i have participated in. i really didn’t feel compelled to try and up my scores to achieve receiving a summon token and a world energy. Tier completion rewards were ok on advanced, but not really on beg or intermediate.
Thought for the day. Thanks for listening.
