It reminds me of Marvel Avengers Alliance - I miss that game so much - where you had to follow an entire 'Special Operations' to unlock a new hero in a short periode of time.
And yet, I am not participating in this EP event because I know it's completely useless to a lvl 10 player like me. If I fulfill the 23 tasks I will unlock a lvl 1 unit. My questions to the other lvl 9-10 players here: are you actually going to use this new unit in battle? Will you chose it over your regular lvl 9-10 bike?
I think no one will. That's why we will never see these units in action and so they will remain a rarity, like the latest spider bot hero. Only samples will be used here and there. That's a shame for the devs who put hours into designing the unit. We already have enough units in our roster which are not viable!
Marvel Avengers Alliance had a better approach: after unlocking the hero at lvl 1 via the Spec Ops you could upgrade him with normal credits. I wish the devs of this game would introduce the same system. Players would be a lot more encouraged to complete the Event because it would allow them to upgrade the unit to a competitive level.
Under the current system we would need like 8-10 event weeks with the new bike as a reward before the unit becomes viable. Based on how the devs repeat events I think it could take like 1 year before the first non-paying players have maxed this unit.
Of course L10 players don’t care about L1 bike.
But I play the events, because ... it is fun, and to me having fun is important.
Having said that though, they should give out more frags per event. 1 frag per event is very ... stingy, lol.
