View Full Version : Not really missing the drops at all

I can't say that I miss the drops from arkfalls one bit. I actually enjoy playing them now. I play them just for fun, which is what a game should be, fun. I do not miss the stress of what blue mod and gun I will drop at the end of the major. I do not miss getting umpteen guerilla buttstocks and tac scopes. I do not miss dropping 5 of the same JP shotgun or sniper. I do not miss the constant letdown and disappointment. It seems like there is no ultimate solution for all. Some like the drops. Some like Ex Inanis. In my opinion, Ex Inanis is a better setup, because it forces you to play to earn, and has cut down on a lot of the afk players, as was mentioned in another thread. I know I have done my fair share of griping on the forums here, but it seems like the devs cannot win here. They have drops at the majors, we all come on here to complain about how many of the same jp we are dropping. They take the drops away, people come on here to complain there are no drops anymore. I really enjoy the Ex Inanis setup, and sure, it could use a little tweaking.

Think about this though. Would you rather have 5 JP sniper drops that you cannot give away by the end of an event, or the chance at seeing Big Boomers, Mass Cannons, Purgatories, Bombadiers, etc. in new and exciting nanos and synergies that were never around before?

I know which way I would vote.

That side of it is good yes, the mod side of it is ugly though imo.

Jonny Dbag - "Some like the drops. Some like Ex Inanis."

It makes me think of Los Vegas casinos... Some like to play the slot machines(random, mostly you lose) And some like games that require skill (blackjack, poker). But, I do agree they could do something about the mods not being such a crap shoot. I'm not sure what the best solution would be but, here's hoping they figure it out!....

Sadly it's all really the same. Work my but off at a mjr to get hosed in the reward screen or I work my but off to get hosed at the runner. All I'm seeing are shotties and smgs. Same as before if I want something I have to fish in zone. The rng just changed forms haven't seen a single perfected drop worth bragging about hit my inventory with out paying for it. So in the end I don't care for either jp structure. The only thing I like in the whole mess is I can hit up py for jps I may be missing then I'm left with the earlier mention modding dilemma. Spend thousands of pg on vendor food mods just trying to fully t4 a gun. Yep same old rngesus just gave him new robes.

This.

I've mentioned several times that the "event arkfalls" could drop the current Ex synergy mods and it would be a huge win-win for the game.

Take it a step further, and add those same mods to the "normal arkfalls". Win on 2 fronts. Allow ppl a better chance to score the mods they need, and, it'll help level out the mod economy...

I agree as far as weapons go.
Mods are a different issue. RNG is just as brutal as always. I have been buying only assault mod boxes for this rotation. I get mostly commando scopes and tactical scopes. I have gotten two pb, and one err in past two months out of all boxes purchased.
The good thing about all of these crap drops is that if they were dropping from arkfalls, i would be constantly running to vendor to keep my inv from getting filled with trash.

what they should do is also add a box in one of the vendors that allows you to buy event JP's with PG and/or normal weapons/mods as well.

Personally I would rather have the old system over the current ex inasis,before I would usually get 1 of each jp before I get doubles and they would have perfect rolls so I wouldn't have to worry about putting more work into them and could focus on modding and t6ing.

with the new system I spent the first month 1/2 grinding non stop expos,incursions ect hoping to get something good at the runner.i spent almost all of the pg I had gotten and got a good ammount of perfected weapons but only 1 of them I would even consider using,the rest were just crap.and on top of that the 1 that I might use needs a ton of work on the rolls.
I play alot and can't get anything decent from the runner,for the people that can't grind as much as some it's almost impossible to get a really good weapon worth the time

I would like to se a combined system of getting rewards from arkfalls and still have ex inasis

I enjoyed the drops from exl be nice to just to have them all auto pickup if that would help lag and the Ex Inanis was nice. As Fallen_Aingeal stated mod drops would be nice. Close to 100k pg spent and I have yet to use anything I've gotten in any event. My only hope is to get something I can use to trade.

I didn't realize how much until the EXL event but I really do miss drops a lot.

I like ex inanis (didnt played the old system), but I have to say, seeing an orange droping on the floor is really REALLY nice!!

And people says that in the old system, there was lots of afk'ers farming, you guys ruined it =p

no, they have atm trash jackpots that have syn's not related to the current event, which are also 12k PG.

Why does it need to be either or? They've toned the frequency of the events down considerably so there's not an event on all the time now, so why can't we have ex inanus and drops at event majors? Just because some prefer the new system doesnt mean everyone does (I have no preference) having both would make everyone happy(er)

They just need to add a syn specific crate to the runners that drops a full set of mods or they can do like what used to be in the Paradise vendor and drop a random syn but make them weapon specific. 1000 pg is way too high for 1 blue mod. A full set would be at least a realistic gain for the time invested in the pg. Of course with the rng I have that would be 4 blues but at least it'll be full syn till I got the t4s.
