This game is all about random coincedences. Wanted missions, titan battles, alliance wars, challenge events… all get you random loot. If you need a specific item and you just don’t get it, it’s all a coincedence. Right?
But what if a bunch of friends form an alliance and everybody keeps getting the items and materials another member needs? And what if it goes like this: A only gets items needed by B, B only gets items needed by C and C only gets items needed by D. What if it goes on like this for 6 months? How random can you call all this? I thought winning random loot would end up in a variety.
As a specific example I’ll give you this:
To ascend Little John (green 4*) I need 442K food, 1 compass, 1 pair of fine gloves, 4 sturdy shields and 3 scabbards. For over 4 months I’m hoping to get 2 more sturdy shields, but somehow I’m not getting them. But on the other hand, in that same time, one of my friends has got already 13 of them and he doesn’t need them. Just like I get things I don’t need and he… you get the point? If it’s always ending up the same, what’s random or coincidental about that?
And yes I read about the sprint & marathon comparisons, but in my humble opinion, waiting for over 4 months isn’t a sprint anymore.
