Events like Choose Your Side, Shiva Force, and The First Anniversary are the things that keep the activity going. There were some good events this year, some awful, some just okay. So while 2018 is far enough to give early input before any major developments go under way let’s get to it.
First a poll. Some random ideas, some inspired by previous events. Vote which ones you think you’d like to see next year.
Take a moment to read their descriptions before you vote:
-6* Drop Leader Wheel. Inspired by one of my favorite wheel events. It was another guaranteed 5* a little after the first anniversary but most of the characters in the wheel were medium drop leaders. This was during a time were casual players like myself had few 5s let alone a medium drop leader. 6s are now compatible with most, if not all, gear and farm maps. Let’s kick off the final stage of the transition into the 6* meta by doing away with those old 5* huge and medium drop leaders and move into 6* drop leaders.
-Guaranteed Ascendable Wheel. Pretty simple. By the time this event would role around there will be plenty of 6s to choose from but not everyone will have them. This wheel would be exclusivey 5s that are ascendable by the time of the event, some even gaining ascendance when the event begins. Some of them past premiere recruits, others common ascendables that people might not yet have.
-A New Beginning. Inspired by Choose Your Side, a multi collection event where you decide what shiny new character you end up with in the end but this time more choices, more communities. Choose Your Side was successful but it was too easy and the choice to choose the reviver was almost mandatory for most. Neither character ended up really being exclusive or feeling too special. 4 or 5 characters to choose from, each from a different community, instead of 2, with useful ARs, specialist and leader skills for today’s meta would be great at helping team diversity across regions and making your choice seem a little more special. The accompanying story would be traveling from community to community witnessing the regrowth that occurs after the war with the Saviors and your choice in the collections represents which community you want to settle down in.
-Legendary to the Max. Some of the past attempts at legendary gear events have been, dare I say, sad. This one… one wheel, lots of tokens, no BS, no filler. Just legendary gear and Benedicts. Canteens, GPSs, Radios, Watches, all the other t3 and t4 legendary items but NO FILLER CRAP. No 5* gear items, no burts, no basils. Legendary gear done right. So people that haven’t cheated, spent a whole lot, or gotten real lucky can finally t4 a 6*.
-Guaranteed 6* Wheel. That time is approaching. Maybe it’s already approached. Where the most satisfactory thing you can give is a straight up 6*. So similar to wheels in the past like Shiva Force, The First Anniversary, etc where you are guaranteed a character as long as you come up with enough tokens but for a 6*.
- 6* Drop Leader Wheel.
- Guaranteed Ascendable Wheel
- A New Beginning: Choose Your Community
- Legendary to the Max
- Guaranteed 6* Wheel
Now for some input on reoccurring special events that may not have been done so well this year.
The Third Year Anniversary…many would agree the Second Anniversary was the worst event of the year if not the second worst. Which is really, really sad because the First Anniversary was one of the best. Third times the charm, right? Do better in 2018. Do it like the first but for 6s in mind this time. Maybe adapt that guaranteed 6 wheel idea.
Lucille tokens… please let’s not bother having a wheel full of filler that lasts 30 days if we’re only going to get about 10 pulls through tokens spread sparingly throughout the events. The contents would have been forgivable wheel… if tokens has been much more generous.
Speaking of wheels… in general. It can’t be said enough putting hiking boots in a wheel or a 2* trainer or an alpenstock is just not what most people want to see.
That’s what I’ve got. Add anything you have to offer below.
