Yeah you gave us potions. Probably because it was too difficult (or expensive) to have Faction Assaults be the only event to go without them.
Meanwhile you continue to pull bull shit Ninja changes like this:
Newish layout (starting in November it looks like)
So basically you changed it to require a level 5 room (hardest possible outside of Bosses) to be completed to complete the delve.
Don’t worry about explaining the folks the reason why the change occured. I can speak dev for you.
It was changed because too many folks (all be it a small percentage of the game) are able to get the Faction to 2500 with a hoard quality 100 and zero potions. Which goes against our ethos of wanting the Delves to be a huge time, gems, and gold sink with little rewards for it. We don’t consider how difficult our delves are outside of Primal Rift (before the change) and Crypt Keepers. And the thousands of players who sink millons of gold into delves and still can’t get them to 2500 without Potions. Nor do we bother to address the difficulty after we nerf PvP gold by 66% and raise the cost of one LT by 300%. We instead make fundamental changes that makes @Sirrian words as trustworthy as a politicians. Tell us what we want to hear, but then do whatever makes you the most money. All because maybe 100 (if that) players didn’t waste enough resources to get Primal Rift to 2500. (If it’s more than 100 then they probably used hacks so shouldn’t be considered when screwing over legit players.)
TL:DR - The delves may financially be looking like they are working as intended. But skeezy moves like this one will eventually start to hurt your bottom line. You are still profiting off a lot of good will you earned during the first 3 years of GoW. If behavior doesn’t change, then it’s only a matter of time before you lose it… And your players aka .
