I want something to change and I don’t care to bicker about what something it is.
I could get it if the weapons that get worse are booby prizes. But they’re not: they’re meta-relevant weapons. You have no way to try out the affix to see if you think it’s worse that way. Sometimes it’s only after a few dozen matches you realize exactly why the affix is worse. Even if we know it’s worse, players are encouraged to chase kingdom stars and I’m pretty sure the estimate of “When will another mythic weapon release for this kingdom?” is somewhere around the 12th of never for many kingdoms.
When I felt positive about the weapon upgrade system, it was because I said, “We don’t know if the devs have a pipeline of new weapons in the works, if they make a lot of new weapons this could be really good.” There’s been time to announce or show off that pipeline. I don’t believe in it anymore. What we have is bad, and makes the developers look lazy/careless.
I don’t care if:
- I have to pay ingots to remove one affix at a time.
- I am allowed to toggle affixes on or off.
- Weapons get talent trees.
- Developers rework the affixes to be at worst benign.
Again, I don’t care HOW it gets changed. But it’s not cool as-is and it makes me think badly about GoW.
