Would like to share my thoughts / suggestions regarding this year's Holiday Event .
Once again this year, EW as targeted this event for certain players only . The SM / grinders / exploiters have an event especially made for them , leaving the rest of us , empty handed .
I've been doing the missions / comps , purely for the 10 000 pts and for what minimum challenge it can give me .Jolly points
are a real joke . You get them by harvesting animals . EW even goes to show you a chart of the points associated with them , how cool is that !!?
So you know exactly what species to grind, for those JP .
Bottom line is , the one that grinds the most Ibex in the month of December , will most certainly win . Cool event , right ?! Missions
are o.k. i guess . Nothing spectacular . Pretty normal ones , like the ones we have already , in regular play .Competitions
are , once again , not made to see which hunter really deserves a prize . They are accepted in multi player also and some see them as '' Camouflage team comps '' .
A dude and some mates ( which don't care about winning them usually ) go help that one guy get the big one .
Mates : Hey dude , got a big one in front of me !
Dude : ok, will be right there .
Dude is running or FT .
Mates : Do you see him , at my dot .
Dude : Yes man, he's big alright . BANG !!!!
Dude : thx mate , come in the pic . My PB this year , cool .
Dude : Gives me first in the comp !! yahooo !
Number of attempts is way to high also . Mostly 20 . Gives the SM many attempts at their style of play .
In the end , when you think about it real good , this event is made for the players i talk about in my post . They are the ones who will get the prizes .
If i manage to stay in the top 100 , with each day's points and couple harvest here and there , i may have the joy to receive a cookie pic and some camping supplies .
- Loose the point system for future events .
- Make comps in single player only , so that the winner really deserves to win a prize . Lets see what a single player can do , alone !!
- Lower the number of attempts for comps . [email protected]
is way enough . Will make hunts a bit longer and players will think their hunts .
- Make these kind of events , for the common everyday players . Not ones that can hunt 20 hours a day non-stop for 30 days !!
Nothing personal , just wanted to say something about the event .
