And that's why I kept saying that the legendary tasks should be PERSONAL. Make them cost 40-50k, but only the person contributing gets the reward. That'll keep the active people happy, and the leeches will get exactly what they deserve.
like ... WHAT? (And I apologize for picking your quote, but at this point something just went ZING in my mind after reading so much whining about "HOW EXPENSIVE THE LEGEND TASK IS VS THE RETURN".
and another one
take a step back and think for just a moment, for 33k gold per person you get A LOT more resources than that's worth. With a potential of getting the new mythic (for 33 K GOLD, no keys spent). If anything, I'm surprised people don't complain those tasks are too cheap.
Once again, I do not say that people who are super active don't deserve the payout for it. I strongly believe so. But I am AGAINST the leeches doing flat minimum req in their guilds being fed by those very active. Personally I find it unfair that people like that get more stuff than me only because they are in those guilds, and I am in mine, while I'm few times more active. (once again, I point at those doing the bare minimum in the top guilds, who won't affect the legendary tasks but will get rewards from them for free, you know those people are there.)
Make the legendary tasks personal, then people like @Macawi won't feel bad for getting "small" return from fronting the entire 1 mln herself, instead she'd get a bunch of tasks done and more resources for herself, which she deserves for farming that gold up.
We have 72 guild tasks for teamwork, there's no reason to not make things above that personal. It would even solve the problem of "people finishing the 72 tasks too fast, and some members can't even contribute", because with the personal reward system above, ppl would do their part and save the rest of the gold for their own gain (as it should be).
