In this blog post, I will be reviewing my thoughts on the cosmic era update. You can find info about that here -> (https://forums.socialpointgames.com/topic/16012/cosmic-era-everything-you-need-to-know).
SECTION I : COSMICS
First, I find this decision to make Cosmic Mythics somewhat forced. I feel like this really wasn't necessary, and I can't really think of a good reason to make them besides, well, money.
First, Stardust. This is the thing that bothers me the most about this. People were already mad about elementium being deemed useless and untranslatable (And despite SP indicating they were thinking about making a way to help transfer elemental cells and elementium to the Mythics, the never did). Essentially, they're doing pretty much the same thing, unless the cosmic era ends and they being making regular Mythics, but I doubt that.
The Gauntlet seems pretty nice, but honestly they were pretty vague about this so there's nothing I can really say.
I'm not gonna discuss about the books since it's nearly the same with elites , I presume.
Era events seem like a nice way to get free stuff, so cool!
King Live duels is a addition I don't have much issue with, but it seems to heavily favor those who pay, as well as pretty much excluding beginners from participating in them.
Survival Dungeon is a neat addition as well.
SECTION II : MULTIPLAYER CHANGES
I really like this. I always thought that the rewards were uneven, underwhelming and kind of bad, besides the End Of Season ones obviously. I also feel like it gives free to plays a nice chance to get cool rewards. Overall not much to say about this since I haven't seen the amounts rewards from the chests, but unless they majorly screw up the amounts, very cool.
SECTION III : Forsaken Days
I also think this is pretty cool. The main issues I had with Forsakens is the fact that only the people playing at the time could get it and that their avaiability was limited for rank ups. This helps with that. However, I also feel this came too late. This was only added a good way into the Mythic meta, and I can't help but feel that this is another money grab when a lot of Forsakens already have a bad usage due to the Mythic meta. Not to mention this is going to be added when Cosmics are added, so there's a good chance that all of them will be outclassed instantly. So even though it's nice, I feel this is a late money grab.
Overall, I don't really like Cosmics, but I feel the Multiplayer changes are cool! The Forsaken days seem like a late money grab that will quickly be outclassed by new cosmic mythics.
Thanks for reading everyone! Hopefully SP doesn't take this blog post down.
