I am so discouraged and frustrated to see the turn this game is taking. The past 3 events have been pay to win events. The payouts from the quests have been minimal and not enough to buy any of the big ticket items (like runes). There used to be an acceptable balance between having to grind a bit for the rune or featured reward but it was alway obtainable. Hitting the leaderboards was always something you needed to pay to compete with the top players which was fine since you were able to walk away with something if you put in the effort for quests. This current event is ridiculous. Completing the available quests only yields something like 15k tickets and that’s assuming you either have raid tickets saved up or you are paying gems to buy enough (and win) to complete the quests. Even with that, it’s not enough to buy the rune or the epic part. Fat chance if you want to get the ultimate skin. I understand the ultimate skins are designed for pay to win, and the epic part will be available in boss island if we are patient, but if you continue the pattern of not having any valuable reward obtainable from just playing the game you will ruin a very good game.
I am VIP 9 and not oppposed to buying the occasional gem pack or token pack. I love that you release content frequently and that it is fresh and fun. But I do not appreciate having to pay to compete or enjoy this game.
Please hear this feedback. I know I am not alone.
