EDIT BY OP: JB edited and removed the screencap of him commenting on the matter in the I Am Negan Line chat for… I don’t know why. You can infer the gist of it though.
Well, looks like any (if any) gear events are going to be very far and few between. This of course raises the question; Is the league store enough to keep you set for gear?
- Yes, I can get all the gear I need there
- Yes, I guess I can scrounge enough to get by
- No, I’m going to come up a little short
- No, that’s NOWHERE near enough
Me personally; I’m completely screwed.
I always go way harder on faction tourneys than solo ones so the league points from those is quite underwhelming, thus I haven’t moved up ranks. Even so I’ve managed to remain nicely nestled around Platinum III or IV the entire stretch so far.
But the real problem is that my faction transferred regions about mid-October. And we’re still playing catch-up. We were in Diamond II when we transferred and we’re currently slated for silver V.
Currently I’m going to get 1,240 league tokens from faction placement and 5,500 tokens from solo (assuming I don’t drop) for 6,740 a week.
Now, to get a legend to top tier I need 6 epic trait pieces, 6 more epic top tier pieces, 1 GPS and 1 canteen.
2,400 * 6 + 6,000 * 6 + 18,600 + 18,600 = 87,600 league tokens.
87,600 / 6,740 = 12.997 (rounding to 13)
That’s 13 weeks or about 3 months for one tier of one character. That is insane.
Even with the occasional event or roadmap handing out 1 or 2 pieces of epic gear I’m still coming up way short. (Side note; event gear has been WAY out of wack in terms of proportions. I have way too many radios and watches and nowhere near enough of the basic epic gear, namely sports gauntlets or top tier gear, namely GPSs. How do you have shortages above and below those pieces? That makes no goddamn sense)
I know JB has mentioned that once season 2 ends they’ll implement a season so faction can keep their rank when transferring, but unless it supports covering the massive loses people had over seasons 1 and 2, I’m screwed.
