So ive been playing it, and enjoying it.
The communication needed, and the coordination between guild members are brilliant, and I am a massive fan of that.
Troop I hate the most, that stupid fox >.<. I hate that fox in this event more than I hate the Bulette in delves.
The rewards are upsetting. That is the nicest thing to say about them. I get for a lower player, the 55 gems you can get from the tier rewards are brilliant and very much welcome to them. The issue from there, is that at an average of 24 dooms beaten by every player in the guild to finish the rewards, most new players wont get there.
We were told we would get gems from the reward. Personally, I wasnt thinking like everyone gets 500 gems from beating last reward tier, would be great, but not expected. But 55 is way too low for what you need to do for the event. 150 spread out, weighted more towards last tier, would be closer in line with what people would expect imo. The leaderboard rewards a joke as well really. Again, was expecting something similar to GW rewards there, as they are the only other entire guild event based leaderboard. Cutting it down significantly wasnt a good idea imo.
Now lets get to the part that annoys me the most about the event. The scrolls.
Now these scrolls, 10 types of them, drop from 4/5 rooms per floor. Lets just go to floor 25 for the sake of rounded numbers. 100 scrolls drop.
You instantly expect more life and armor scrolls. Then some attack and then some magic all spread out. With a small peppering of power, heroism, luck, haste and fireball. With 1 unlock per floor.
Now talking to other guilds, as well as what we got, thats not the case. In fact, its 100% random. Might be a good thing right? Sure it would be amazing doing that if it wasnt a guild based competitive event that requires a reward currency, dooms, to complete. in 100 scrolls dropped, we got 0 fireball. 0 power, 1 heroism. Yet talking to others, at half the amount, they have already had 2-3 power and a few fireball and heroism as well.
It takes a lot of the skill and strategy needed to finish the event away, and just throws in luck. Whats it going to be next event?? We get 10 luck scrolls in 1st 5 floors, and thats all anyone needs to do to complete the event? Or we going to get 0 luck scrolls and 0 fireball and heroism scrolls and everyone needs to complete floor 24 to finish it??
The scrolls should drop at the same rate for everyone. Not just “average out” over the course of thousands of guilds. Every guild should expect the same drops in the same rates. It does not have to be the same floors and same rewards, but over the 25 floors, it should be the same rates.
