Yea I think we’re just going to be polar opposites on this one.
I like the costume events because it added something new to do in the game. The costume keys are just a bonus. PoV is a sustained chore, its everything you already had but now a passive obligation to do it on a schedule. You see that as a good thing and I see it like having my phone tell me to make my bed everyday. I’m a gainfully employed adult with a busy schedule, that just isn’t fun regardless of how many treats get waved in my face.
It comes down to what I said in the original post - you either are in the game for the skinner box or you’re not. I personally enjoy having things to do with the heroes that I have, not in the dopamine hit of getting a reward in 50 days later. Some people like grinding, but chasing loot does nothing for me, I like playing - raids, wars, titans, events, etc. I would do those things even if they gave you nothing. I definitely wouldn’t sit around waiting for ducks to spawn if gave me nothing.
Fwiw, personally, I’m not quitting the game over it, but I am going to stop doing PoV because it definitely has been a drag on wanting to login and play. It will (hopefully) reduce that chore feeling for me.
