Is the point of an Event to create an arbitrary meta for 7 days or is the point of the Event something else?
Personally, I'd rather the Event be about the event, and maybe give troops a +12.5% boost (+25% if they synergize). That's enough to make those troops interesting choices without making events tiresome.
Personally, I hate the 50% troop aspect of Events, but I don't assume my tastes are everyone else's tastes. That's why I ask...is the +50% boost the purpose of the Event?
Are we all supposed to be looking forward to that element?
In my case, it's my least favorite aspect of GoW, after Treasure Maps/Events.
P.S. Doesn't making troops/Kingdoms +25% or +50% make it very difficult for low-level players to complete Explore and PvP of those Kingdoms/troop types?
That's not an issue for me, but it seems needlessly cruel.
