I’ve been doing explore battles for the last hour and I’ve had ONE gnome. Since opening this post, I’ve done four battles, no gnomes. Now I understand that RNG is RNG, but Gnome Weekend is a once a month thing, and when the rate of gnomes feels like it’s non-existent still, it’s not a fun experience. I’d rather just close Gems of War and do something else.
In other words: Right now, Gnome Weekend is feeling no different than any other day of explore. But realistically speaking, the devs could ‘tweak’ the numbers and lower the rate of gnome appearance and no one would know the difference, because devs could just say “Oh, RNG is RNG” and lie about lowering the rate.
After all, it’s not advertised how often gnomes appear normally and how often they appear during a gnome event.
They added the “pity vault key” thing so people who kill lots of gnomes but never see a vault key, because RNG, still get vault keys. That only works if gnomes actually show up in the battles though.
Whatever. Closing Gems of War. Waste of time.
Gnome Weekend is supposed to encourage players to spend more time in game. That doesn’t work when the event is unnoticeable (and the bug with pet battles hiding the counter STILL HASN’T BEEN FIXED!)
