I thought it was a rule. Don’t lie to your player-base.
Telling people the troop is available, and then making it UNavailable without telling them is a blatant disrespect for peoples time. It is lying. False advertising.
The advertisement says it is available, it SHOULD be available.
I spent 8 hours yesterday looking for these Devils. It took me 4 hours to get my first one, the next came within 20 minutes of the first.
And then another 2 hours spent today - so for the last 6 hours I have spent grinding low level explores (something I never do because I don’t like doing it, btw), I have been farming for this troop, and coming away with nothing.
I am okay with limits. I am not objecting to limits or caps - I am objecting to the underhanded approach that wastes hours of peoples time for no reason.
If you’re going to have a limit - make sure it is known. Don’t lie to your playerbase by saying something is available for them to get, and then make it secretly unavailable to them - for ANY reason.
Because in the end, you might squeeze an extra few hours out of people grinding their way through this event - but it does you no good if they quit afterwards.
