Yes. To learn the ropes.
The power curve restricting the learning or ability to compete aside from learning is my problem with events as currently written.
Another game I’m playing uses ELO ranking system. It’s a chess-like game. We had a player come in having never played before. He learned the ropes and became a top 10 player over months. Not years but months. (The game has been around more than a decade. Most top players have played for many years.)
The guy has a lot of talent and a long history with turn based strategy so he was able to acclimate quickly.
I’m not even saying this game has to have that level of fairness. Because, let’s call a duck a duck. It is what it is.
But, personally, I feel that it is fair and equitable to say that for limited time events, that are going away and not coming back for a long time… the developers should want to include everyone.
I’m glad that you and your clan were able to find a way to enjoy the event despite not being ‘properly’ geared for it. Though in truth, where you guys are is still above where most F2P first month players are. Probably second month as well.
But you know. Butterflies and hugs and angelic kisses to you my friend. Together we shall rid the world of the megatoxic evil that is hatred. Only together can we vanquish the night and bring glory and righteousness to the downtrodden
