You beat 5 TITANS!
How about this: Since beating a titan almost NEVER gives ascension items, why not put GUARANTEED ones in the loot chest? Give people a REASON to join an alliance and fight titans.
We recently had 4 of our top players leave the alliance (including it’s CREATOR) and the game, because they were TIRED of sitting on heros (that they PAID for with gems they bought), waiting, sometimes MONTHS, on items that NEVER come/came.
I’d say that the lack of ascension items is getting ridiculous, but from where were are now in the drop rates, it would take the light from ‘ridiculous’, 3 light years to reach us.
