I'm 100% agreed that it's irritating as all get out that we're constantly on Special Missions.

Special Missions, Glory, and Fighting Missions seem to be the only ones left now, and it's getting *boring*, to say nothing of most of the team basically slagging off during Special Mission weeks. Getting a variety of missions like we did early on was actually *enjoyable*, since it meant that you had some strategy to how you handled your character. Now?

Not so much.

What everyone appears to not understand is that Playata does not care anymore.  If they did they would try to do something to stop players from quitting the game.  But they are not and every day I see another 5 to 10 players quitting.  The game will die because they are doing everything in their power to upset people.  What players that continue to play should do is stop feeding them money....  Unfortunately you are not going to get that idea across to people.  BOYCOTT!!!!!

if only there was a similar game elsewhere, but are more about keeping the players and not averaging more cash per player?  today it is extremely hard.

 

oh, the old days of Shining Force, where you could stay forever leveling up your heroes and making the enemies be like little bugs you crush or multiple players games where all the enemies were computerized foes, and all players were your friends, where we help each other climb up in level

I do not see an issue with it being "semi-random" and keep us on our toes

 

I just want for sure

 

1) a guarantee that skill points buy is at least every 8 weeks ( if sooner done by computer, excellent )

 

and

 

2) that no type of contest will be drawn by computer next week or 2 weeks after, there has to be at least 3 weeks before it is repeated

 

for example

 

week 24 sell items

 

we will not get sell items in week 25 or week 26..................... sell items would not be put as a contest until at least week 27

I am not saying they have to give us a list of them... well a list would be nice of what they are but not the order I can see people cheating if they know the order.. but a human can pick the next one.. if there are 5 herocons a human can look at the list and say ok we just did 3 an 5 lets do 1. I can understand not having a this is the order because it would be exploited

if the list was in order, a given scenario, the rotation would be constant and everyone could be equally prepared for it, too hard to exploit if everyone knows what is coming. I would much rather see a different Herocon every week, even if I knew what it was going to be... To have the same within 1 week of each other is just not good. 

 

In a truly randomized world the same HeroCon could appear back to back too. So lets have a list. Detailed to what is when... And move on.

they can easily do in case of 8 possible HC deeds with skill points buy being HC 4

 

first week

HC 1 to HC 8

it is selected HC3

------------

2nd week

everything except HC3 goes to the draw

HC7 selected

-------------

3rd week

everything but HC3 and HC7 to the draw

HC2 selected

--------------------

4th week HC3 goes back to the draw

everything but HC2 and HC7 to the draw

HC1 selected

---------

5th week HC7 goes back to the draw

everything but HC1 and HC2 to the draw

whatever is selected

 

if at the week 7 HC4 has not been selected in any week, than HC4 ( skill points buy ) is guaranteed to be for week 8, there is no draw for that week, and HC4 would not be part of draw weeks 9 and 10

I like this format, but how about NOTHING goes back into the draw until all 8 are completed. 

 

This would keep things fresh. Because if you have one repeat in 8 weeks, someone is going to complain about that not showing up. So, instead, either a set list that shows at a given time.. or only appears once in 8 weeks before the rotation clears and starts again.

taking that there is only 8.................. ( there are more than 8 actually )

 

if we do it like you said

 

at end of 8 weeks, and all are put back on the table, there is a chance that week 8 might become same as week 9  ( as all were put back on the table at week 9 )

 

the reason most people want mostly skill points buy ( but some also want the sell items ) to be periodically ( or semi-periodically ) is because they are forced to hold coins or items until that contest shows up, and if they take too long...people complain, the increase of storage I think was mostly because of hoarding of items until next "sell items" but if sell items takes too long to come again..............  some people will be filled with items even if all items are epic and have all 10 storage places filled

I get your point, really. But the way I see it, this scenario could still happen. 

 

For example:

H1 to H8-H3 drawn

H1 to H8-H7 drawn- No H3

H1 to H8-H5 drawn- No H3 or H7

H1 to H8-H2 drawn- No H5 or H7/H3 back in draw

H1 to H8- H3 drawn

 

Every 4th week we could potentially be seeing repeats of week 1. Eventually this means that one of the herocons still may not be showing up in an 8 week schedule. My thought was, just put them in some order. That way, you know when to save items, you know when to save coins. Everyone has the same advantage because the rotation is constant. And each herocon would have 100% chance of showing up.

yes, could happen................. but having it "potentially" again 4 weeks later is better than having it after only 2 weeks( as it has happened ), or worse, 2 weeks in the row, and only certain types need to be periodically done if it does not show after a period of time ( sell items and buy skills the main 2, but there might be 1 or 2 that could be added, but the others is no biggie if it does not show for more than 3 months ( like the hated special missions )

Centella, I don't think one tear would be shed if that particular Special Mission Herocon faded into the dark night never to be seen again!  ;)

 

Hopefully some of our suggestions will be taken into consideration.
