I am under the impression that the overwhelming majority of people wanted, and asked for, some greater parity in the rewards to avoid the tensions arising from FAs and to make it more of a faction event, rather than a solo competition.
The new reward bags seem to create a greater divide, giving only #1-3 a second chance at Tara gear and Benedicts.
#4-11 get a second set of gear that is available daily through roadmaps and the depot which seems a little insulting considering the time and effort it takes to acquire the necessary assault tickets and to finish the assault. It’s such a severe drop off in rewards compared to top 3 participants.
#12-30 actually get a second set of tokens instead of daily farmable gear? Not sure what the logic is there unless a compensation for getting less assault markers but still seems very odd to me.
Overall I just don’t see why there needs to be different tiered bags, at least ones that are so different. Surely just giving extra markers to the top participants is enough considering it’s a FACTION orientated event and there is already plenty of animosity arising from the current problems.
