    Do all 5 iterations of the event have the same objectives and same nodes, only difference is the different event supports?

    All of these objective scores need to be doubled - if not more.

    So, 2 more years of an even longer grind in the daily event?  I was already passing on the ZE event many moons ago due to the unfun grind.

    If you are going to make us play a minimum of 10 matches to get full progression you could at least increase the rewards.

    Players complained about Zendikar Expeditions being grindy and with bad rewards and it required a minimum of 7 matches to get full progression. Now you make this new event even grindier but keep the same awful rewards. 

    Do you really think that players consistently need 12000 runes? For most players that's like rewarding them with a handshake

    I agree with bongo here - runes are super useful to players in bronze and silver who still have a lot of walkers to buy and level. All long term players have an enormous pile of runes in the millions - more than we would ever need for any reason. 

    Is there something else we can put in the platinum rewards for long term players? Perhaps crafting orbs?

    This is the same structure ZE had when it first released.  It took a month of constant complaining before Oktagon bumped the secondary objectives up to 5 each instead of 3/2.
    And so many of us still didn't play the event even after that

    I have a serious concern (in case the Dev teams don’t! What are they thinking?!) that this punishing tedious structure will drive people away from the game.

    I completely agree with all of the concerns regarding grindiness already aired in this thread. I actually quit the game for a time because of the increasing stinginess of rewards. I can't tell if the decision here to go back to the original structure of ZE is laziness or apathy. Or, perhaps it was intentional.

    On a positive note, I appreciate that the objectives aren't in any way dependent on killing creatures. That is one of my pet peeves in this game. My ability to achieve an objective should never depend on what my opponent does or me having to some sort of self harm.

    Heres a math equation for the devs:

    Require > 7 games = People not playing + less spending real money.  

    "Be creative and less frugal or it costs you dearly in the end."  - Wise man once said. 


  • BongoTheGrey

    Another equation.

    8 Training Grounds games + 8 Trial of the Planes + 10 Revolving Planeswalk.

    We are now required to play at least 26 games per day to get the daily rewards.

    Almost no one has time for that so you are creating a product that players will avoid. I know that you put a lot of work on designing new events and interactions with the permasupports and everything. Do you really want to create a product that won't be consumed?

    We gotta except the design... longer events means a larger timeline of  "active players" 

    I expect events to continue to be grindy moving forward... snd TBH At least ever objective is the easiest objective OF ALL TIME,  and we have a new revolving event that gives the newest packs as rewards.

    Now I really don't have to buy any PP

    That being said I will get all the commons and uncommons/rares and never plays this event ever again lol

    Either move the rune rewards to the back or change the ribbons to +10/+5/+5 please.

    I really don't understand why it's a copy of the initial ZR being 5/3/2 and expecting 10 perfect games for these rewards.

    Could this be a sign of frustration from the dev team? I wonder if they are caught in the following dilemma.

    If the devs make events with decent rewards, the players do not invest enough money in the game, since the players get want they need from the events.

    if the devs make events that the players don’t want to play, the players do not invest enough money in the game, since what is point of buying cards that won’t be played with.

    So I suppose that the devs tried the first scenario with rising tides (which had fantastic prizes) and then they tried the second scenario with ZE and the result was better with ZE. Just my 2 cents
