I was going to answer this question 3 hours ago with parts of your rant that came 6 hours later.
But, I felt I had done enough bitching about the RNG this week.
You’re absolutely right though. This new delve team is the worst way to try and win in the game.
Having to rely on RNG with gem/skull spawns or explosions puts you on a fast track to a L.
What concerns me is @Sirrian himself is saying the delves are too difficult. Yet since that public statement the Delves have only been more difficult. Not less.
So if he’s unable to rebalance the game. Who’s really pulling the strings then? Cause if it’s not Sirrian leading the ship. Then the game and the community are most likely headed for an ice berg.
The best days of GoW were when 505 had little influence on the game. I’m hoping one day we can return to that Utopia.
