Yea, I don’t either. People throwing tantrums about everything and anything. It’s evident everywhere, including this forum here (not saying you, BTW. Just in general). I get your logic, but I also get SG’s as well. They did the “meet in the middle” approach by reducing the overall spawn rates of rare mat quests by a good 30+%.
Most people don’t care nor do they really care to get that “Oh one more mat to add to the pile of 20+ I will never get to use”. Your post in Ideas/Features category has been there for a week, and it has garnered 13 votes (14 now that I’ve added mine to it as I’m not against it at all).
You’re not losing out on it as you never had it to begin with. Like I said, there was a “meet in the middle” approach that has been applied. I’m willing to bet 100% that the devs believe this makes up for it because you ahd to wait 10+ days between rare quests. I’d say what we have now is better than what it was before. I recall having to wait nearly two weeks and then boom a challenge event, so another week added making it a 3 week wait between rare quests. Olive branch turning out to not be good enough.
But that’s what it sounds like…veiled in the excuse of you’ve already outlined. You want it on a set clockwork, regardless of what else is happening. Which means spawn timers of all other quests also have to change as well.
I’m certainly not dismissing you…just providing different perspective on things the way I see it.
No one said it’s perfect now. But I’m of the belief that the energy should be focused on more important areas. Example: the nospend movement. Even though I’m not actively participating in it, I think it would create more value to the community then a set schedule of rare mat quests. Most people don’t have issues with mats…most people have issues with not getting heroes to broaden their enjoyment in the game or the heroes they have getting changed (even though I personally prefer to wait to see what the end result of the “Big Balance” will actually be).
It’s not. You’re not getting fewer mats. You’re getting more of them. You never had them on a set schedule. Time being reduced between spawns translates in more of them appearing more frequently which then translates in a net gain of mats. Those complaining about mats at this point are spending money on pulls but not on mats. There’s an easy fix for that. Instead of creating a larger backlog, spend some of that money on mats. Problem solved.
Well, you can feel however you want about it…but again, time between spawns has already been reduced a while back.
We all go through hot/cold streaks. Unless your actively purchasing all mats offers. I’ve yet to see anyone provide tangible evidence that they’re not getting mats just like everyone else. Few that have complained about this, after seeing their roster just made me laugh because I saw where those mats went and how large of a backlog they had.
Anyways, I do hope your idea/features post picks up traction. Personally, wouldn’t bother me one way or the other.
