Tasks and why they are making me not want to eve Reply:17| View:877

        Many things about this game make players not want to play, from uneven, non-timed CSA\'s, limited extra rewards from AW, timed events, pay to win, on & on. ;Anyone who is playing after a month knows the servers are dead
        <b>
</b>
        And now there are TASKS

        Let\'s say my guild has just a handful of truly active players. A couple of us share our pandoras boxes for events, or we run the group dungeon together each day. Tasks have completely split that up, because everyone is trying to get their task(s) done and now you have no one to partner with. (randoms in g-dungeon are not always a success);

        So, what you have done with this update is killed the #1 reason people play MMOs (even cheap p2w browser ones), massively multiplayer online. If I have no connection to my guildmates, and I\'m doing everything on my own...why am I playing a mutli player game? You are practically forcing people to make an army of alts as backup to get things done.

Then there is the blatant money grab. I can\'t do anything in game;because I have no idea what my next task will be. Sure, I could buy 5 more fishing attempts, or another maze attempt, etc....but I\'m not spending hundreds of gold a day, every day to complete them.

        Quite a bit could be resolved by retroactive completion. If I need 10 orange boxes and I did 5 earlier with guildmates...include what I have already done.

        As it stands now, I haven\'t even done the bare minimum since you guys included tasks, I get logged on and no wait...that might be a task later or well everyone has done dungeon already etc... and I just don\'t even want to play.

Tasks and why they are making me not want to even play

        Amen to that. I had a wonderfully planned out day every day, doing the same things in the same order, making the most ingame with my time, and devoting excess time to chats with my fellow alliance members. Now my entire game is messed up and I sit there every day becoming more and more confused because I lose track of what I already did and what needs done due to those Loops, and therefore also more tired of the game. Forcing people to play at certain times is not what makes a game great or fun. Agree on all you said.;

Tasks and why they are making me not want to even play

I agree with both posts and want to include more.; Why set tasks that are impossible for my level of character or my BR?; I come on in the morning and see my first task is to go through floor 8 of Absolution and I have only ever passed floor 4?; How fair is that?; Or to Win Defending the City;2 times when it is only offered 2 times a day?; Or to beat the 9th person in Exposition and I\'ve only ever beaten the 7th.; Come on;and find a different way for us to get the same gift items without messing up our play time with our guild mates and friends!!!!!!!;

Tasks and why they are making me not want to even play

I had the same impression when All-Star started, but eventually I was able to cope up and finish the tasks (sometimes not) according to the AS sequence. It takes me around 5pm (after office) to 9pm (WB) to finish my daily task.

I didn\'t think about the tasks impossible to do at ones level/BR. That is a very valid point as well. I\'ve refreshed reach X in expedition, only to get another even higher X task in expedition;

Tasks and why they are making me not want to even play

The all-star event is good. But;the way that the tasks are assigned totally destroyed the game experience. Players are forced to wait, players can\'t cooperate to accomplish some tasks. dev may get some golds boost in the short term, but in the long run dev will loss more because the bad game experience make more players to quit the game.

        Let me clear this up, you are not forced to wait. It\'s up to you if you will do the task or not, basically this is just a bonus feature for those who have an extra time to spend in-game.

Tasks and why they are making me not want to even play

        All i see when i read this is Oh NO! They gave us more options! These heartless Devs! How dare they introduce new feaures on the game that allow us yet another means of obtaining resources!
You can drop it altogether and don\'t do it if you\'re not interested, that\'s an option too.

        What i did to maximize efficiency while playing was designing a rather simple spread sheet on word. Do a task put it on the sheet to keep track of what still needs to be done. i use my time in the game in a most efficient manner and i have fun with it.
        You have three free resets, whenever you see a task you\'re not interested in doing, skip it, when you used them all and another task you don\'t want comes up, end all-star tasks for today.

        Me and my alliance friends are even more united now: we coordinate our tasks, whenever someone gets \'kill red/orange minions\' we wait to see if someone else gets it, then we do it together, killing 6 orange minions or 3 red ones is not heavy one anyone when you have 3 friends sharing boxes, specially because all-star shop can give you p-boxes for silver. Whenever someone strong gets \'do a specific G-D\' we bring in as much weaker members want to come with.

        Its a new feature, give it time to assimilate into your play flow, you will adapt. Even if you do just a little of it, its still very helpful, don\'t think you need to waste Gold on it every day either. i don\'t use a single penny \'exclusive\' for AS and many times i get 10 tasks completed, it is quite manageable.

        i think you\'re just overwhelmed at the moment, give it some time, and like i said, you can drop it alltogether if you\'re no confortable with it.

Reply 7# cuiquesuun@gmail.com
you needed to make a spread sheet !!!! ; that is exactly what the post was about, being OVERWHELMED. if one needs to make a spread sheet to complete tasks in a game then the game may be a bit more than FUN. ;and the tasks you can do with guild members is pretty much only kill minions, I have not seen anything else you can do as a group. so we may have a fail in the GROUP play thing also.

-Check the unique daily tasks(such as stallions grid and BS chest collecting) you did with an \'x\'
        -Tasks that have many things in them such as Hell and Alliance Jobs you just put the number of how many you have done.
        -Tasks that have smaller fixed attemps, such as Absolution Tower, Holy Throne and Beast Meele i just Check with a \'*\' for every attempt used.
        -i mark Gophers with R if i \'regenerate\' the stock by collecting the daily 20 and W when i whack them when the stock is full (60)
        -i mark Barmaid with a x when normal, but i mark it with a HFx1~5 when Hero Feast event is avaiable.
        -Season Event is for things like Monopoly and Brewfest with daily chest claims, and Event End is to make sure the final claims of the season event where also done.
        -Some Tasks are missing as they\'re either negligible or easy to keep track of, such as Mystical Shop, Secret Arena, Team Dungeun, Battle Shrine Fight attempts and Hell Portal.

        That\'s pretty much it, believe it or not, i do have fun doing this, so to me the game didn\'t lose any appeal thanks to the new addition ^^

        As for not having many group activities...you have to agree with me that for a MMO, this game IS rather selfish to its core, i mean we don\'t have even trading systems and even events you can do with friends always have a competitive aspect to them. Like TD and SA that while you will do them with friends, the one who deals the most damage reaps the better benefits.
        GD and HP are the only events we can actually share and do together and have larger benefits when done in group, that is a shame really, but that\'s just how the game is.
