The current events are like playing a game of darts where I get 3 darts per turn and some of my opponents are playing with 10 or more darts per turn.
My idea is to limit the number of tries on an event level to 15.
This basicly sets an upper bound to the number of darts per turn
Why do this?
Currently the top 10 or even top 100 on events pretty much have the same people in it every time. All though it’s very impressive they can consistently get there, I feel it’s too much pay to win. For a top ranking you basicly hold your items and retry starting boards until you get a killer board where you go all in.
With around 10 WE refills you ussually have enough to reach top 10 on rare. I have heard winners even go as far as 34 WE refills to secure that top spot.
Maxing the number of retries will result in a few things:
- You can’t just fold every starting board you don’t like. At some point you will have to make the best of what you got.
- The item ussuge will be higher. Because you will probably burn items on runs that are less optimal just to set a decent score. Hence it will be harder to compete as you need to farm more.
I expect with this change we will see a little more variation in terms of winners, and top 100 rankings.
