Reduced Rewards in Event Bonus Crates

Post#1 » Thu Jul 12, 2018 11:16 am

When the devs rolled out the "Events" in SWC, they used two groups to test the event points (EP) system.

Group A required 450 EP to earn bonus crates and contained 3 rewards
Group B required 900 EP to earn bonus crates and contained 6 rewards

During subsequent events, the devs decided that 900 EP for 6 rewards was the best formula.

Since then, rewards have been reduced to 5 and now with the latest event they have been reduced further to 4.

Along the timeline event award changes, it's become harder to earn the necessary EP quickly (at least as a Rebel) because matchmaking no longer brings up easy bases that can be cleared with a partial load out.

If the goal is to get players to lose interest in the Events, then I guess the present course works.

Yeah, this is a joke, as I have a level 8 base, and they lowered the EP down 20. Really? If you were going to lower it, at least drop it 70. 3 out of the 4 rewards are usually junk anyways.

I thought the -20 was pretty sweet. That meant I could get a bonus crate with 4 attacks and an HD. Before, you were 10 short. Or, 4 attacks and two objective crates got the job done. The lesser rewards sucked, but I found the crates much easier to obtain. I got 21 last week on my main account (level 8), and finished off the AvA and the INT-4, so I've got the rest of the event off. I only needed the full 5 attacks 2 or 3 times.

The 7 PM HD cycle was especially sweet: 5 hd's and 1 attack = 700 ep. Before, you were 20 short and needed a second attack.

A GOOD SIGN... Maybe?

As I posted here, in Week #4 of the current 4 Week Event there will be Daily Planetary Objectives every 12 hours or DOUBLE the "norm".

It will be interesting to see just how this helps (or not) in getting to the Elite Crates faster.

Time will tell...

I can deal with whatever shitty effort/reward ratio they choose to give us. I'll either play it or I won't.

I mostly just wish they'd stop changing it all the time.

You mean planetary objectives, right? HD is normally every 12 hours, except during the rancor or zombie events.

Chancellor - You are CORRECT... My bad... :oops:

I have corrected the original post above.

I agree -20 and -50 EP are nothing, and based on that they reduced the number of frags in the crates like they are doing a big deal for the players... they drop EP from 750 to 700, but I still need to do 5 attacks with my HQ8 -- my last surviving account playing events now --, what is boring and time consuming, anyway, if HDs and objectives aren't available.

But I saw while I was playing this Event that some Event Crates are giving frags (from 1 to 3) instead of only samples for the Speeder, Bufopel and Fathier. Don't know if they are giving frags for everyone, but for my HQ 8 I got 3 or 4 Event crates with 3 frags instead of samples.

But along with the receive/donate 132 troops for durasteel crates, my Bronzium Objectives for today as Rebel HQ10 are deploy 5 b-wings, deploy 30 Z95s, train 48 heavies, destroy 16 mortars (who still use mortars at HQ 10???), destroy 16 sonics and destroy 4 Hero comm (the last 2 are the more reasonable of all)...

Daily Objectives are good only for those at HQ6 to HQ8, they still are easy and fast at these levels... I stopped doing that when I reached HQ9 for both primary accounts.

Hey you Devs, give us the HD loop again, and we talk... :lol: :lol:
