With regards of the Item Drop


#1

Number of items/materials needed to upgrade = Decreased

Drop rates of items/materials = Decreased

It simply means that the Devs are increasing the value of the items.
If anything, it’s quicker to upgrade heroes now.
Back then, it took me a full week to upgrade a single hero to platinum, but now I upgraded Salvatore and Clyde (or Cayde-3 get the Destiny joke lol) both in the same week. In both of these times,I play all the time for a full week.

Finally a post that takes a step back and looks at the big picture. I appreciated how you are now to see that the update actually helps the players progress through the game.


#3

Completely agreed, upgrading is way better then before, going to make my 4th platinum today or tomorrow since the update.


#4

5 Gold to Platinums since the update (yes I spent gold but not too much, a few 100).
In my opinon it’s TOO easy to promote now - take the thrill away, the grind is gone.

I pulled Odachi out of the Brogan crates. Got 1900 stamina and promoted him to platinum, Gallante from Gold 1 to platinum and put one bar on Butter. So you need below 1000 energy from gold to platinum. That is only about 1,5 days worth of free energy.

I actually like this upgrade rate. Its much faster yes but i think thats by design to close the gap between new and long standing players as well encouraging less min/maxing. Of course some people do that deliberately, but there are also plenty who dont even realize they do it or are completely unintentional about it as they want to use a certain team makeup but dont have everyone built yet.


#7

For me, it’s actually a lot more agitating to rank-up heroes by the minute you’re playing, because yes, drop rate for some items are downright impossible without 200 energy to spend.


#8

The number of items needed did decrease, but the drop rate DECREASED along with it.


#9

I know that I’ve managed to upgrade my Min to Plat and my Brogan to Plat-2 within a single day of unlocking them, so it definitely is much better/easier to upgrade a hero’s grades… which I am a fan of.


#10

Yeah you’re right, I read my comment to another thread about this. Sorry lemme fix that haha.


#11

I’ve gotten 6 heroes from Gold to Platinum in a week now - it’s definitely too easy to promote. It can’t be good for the overall health of the game.
