S.H.I.E.LD. Simulator Reward Rate

Why is the reward rate on the Shield Simulator so skewed toward the 2, 3 iso rewards vs the almost 70 character covers? Only 2, 3 iso yet almost every win gives out iso instead of covers. That makes the simulator less enjoyable to play.

    It's just been that way for years and they never changed it.

    My first 8 wins in SSIM gave me Nightcrawler covers.
    Sorry for taking all of yours.

    Rather have bagman covers. They don't drop enough.

    It’s so annoying. Make me not want to play it. With the whole ascension thing now, getting more lower level covers would really make the simulator more popular.

    I agree the Sim rewards need updating. So do the season rewards. I have only just started playing PvP regularly since the end of last season, but if there was a 28 day PvE where I'd get 3 tokens and 45HP for coming in the 11th percentile, I'd probably not play it.

    Edit: in fact, I'll ask about it in the Q&A.

    To clarify, sounds like the OP is talking about match rewards (right?), not progression.

    I put up 43 wins in sim last night, got 5 total cover drops. Hey, 5 beats zero, yep :D

    Yes, quite right. I've never tracked cover drops though 5/43 does sound low.

    Included in the notes for R299 is this:

    ——

    Watch out for an update to "Seasons" coming soon!

    Maybe a rewards update? I hope…

    I think that could be referencing to supports to pvp. There was glitch recently that enabled supports in pvp for about an hour.
