I’ve posted it in a few topics already, but I feel like it should be its own at this point. The new scoring and rewards thresholds for guild events are incredibly unfriendly to those guilds that didn’t previously complete the events. Moving the 3 celestial traitstones to tier 13 put them completely out of reach for any guild that does not have full participation, and that was my guild’s weekly goal, since they were massively beneficial to the newer players that we enjoyed helping.
I really like my guild, but only getting 1 shiny key per week from the events means that my only options as an achievement hunter are to spend 10/20 dollars per week on the offer, or to leave the guild I’m in and join one that actually does require full participation. The choice would be incredibly easy if it wasn’t for the fact that I enjoyed helping newer players. By having ~5 people in the guild I’m in push hard in the events, other people could spend their time how they wanted and still get decent rewards. Since this is not the case anymore, I now have to leave the guild in order to earn any meaningful rewards, and them losing one of the people that pushed events will hurt the newer players that much more.
So thanks, GoW, for making me choose between saving my wallet or sticking with friends and helping new players. Making us have to work harder to reach the same tier reward each week, and then having those rewards be worse than they used to be was such a negative change. It would have been fine if all the added score requirements had been added on to just the end tiers (13-16), giving the high participation guilds more goals to strive for, but instead, you just made it harder for middling guilds to get any kind of rewards at all.
tl/dr: GoW is effectively making some people choose between friends or progress, and thats pretty crappy.
Also, when are we going to hear anything about easing the gem dragon situation? i just opened my 7th green dragon and if theres anything thats going to stop me from spending gems on dragonite its the fear of opening an 8th.
