The new end date will be May 1st.

Please Don’t Gatekeep BattleGrounds

30 energy cost? Champ cooldowns? Boosts? AND you have to actually level up your own players? Why? What is the obsession with limiting our activity in every single mode and trying to dictate WHEN we play? Most of us are grown ass adults we don’t want every single thing we do to have a timer. And by not making things even (like a default rank and sig level) you’re just going to highlight the problems in the community that YOU allowed by having mediocre rewards for completing actual content. While enabling spenders, this mode cannot be a cash grab and it doesn’t have to be. Take all of this BS out and instead give us an extra deck, or alternate costumes, a battle pass, a new abyss… leave this mode alone, this mode is for the summoners.

    What part about this mode have you seen as a cash grab? I haven't seen anything that would lead to that.

    This mode is about you and your roster. That's why it's solo competitive.

    @Quattrucci Madden does it and it works fine. Are we testing each other based on our skill? Or who whaled out during the July 4th and Black Friday deals? Unless everyone here feels okay about being mid tier unless you pump money into every single aspect of this game.

    @Demonzfyre it mainly depends on how the event is scored but people who spend to play more will have more opportunities, people who spend to get there champs back will have more optimal performances, people who spend for rosters and rank ups will be stronger… etc etc. it’s not going to kill the game to have a single mode where everyone feels included. At worst they should have 2 modes (similar to draft champions in madden) where one is free entry and has lesser rewards

    Energy and cooldown both are costly
    But aren't required unless you want to do it immediately. So not a cash grab.

    That's the point. Bring able to play only 2 times every 6 hours on top of everything else is a bit much.

    Remove the energy and its fine. I think some form of cooldown has to be in place to prevent bots from grinding it. Have either energy or champ cooldown but not both.

    That’s your opinion. My opinion is how much I look forward to the thought of kids having to fight my R3 Emma, Modok, Ikaris, etc. if someone is skilled, they have completed content and have ranked up champs as well. I don’t spend that much.

    @Quattrucci Which is awesome until the skilled people get placed in the same reward tree as the “just happy to be here” people. Why allow spenders to continue getting an advantage when we could curtail that now. @Zan0 nerf doom and give everyone a doom aren’t even equivalent statements. Make it make sense, and giving everyone a doom In a mode designed to test your actual skill isn’t the worst thing in the world. You still have to design and select from the deck. Plus if you don’t have a champ you’re not going to be able to use them optimally anyway. Why is everyone so afraid of the smoke? You can’t win unless you’re rank 4 6 star is going up against a 5 star champion? 🤔

    Also @Quattrucci again I respect your point and this would be the ideal situation but just because you cleared a bunch of content doesn’t mean that your champions reflect your progress. Giving everyone similar decks enhances the mode itself instead of highlighting prior RNG based success, but I understand how some people want to flex there Dooms.

    Still dumb. I put too much work into this game for some scrub kid who’s roster stinks to have an equal deck. Equity doesn’t work in life, doesn’t work in competitive games.

    Removing the energy cost and unit cost to refresh is enough for me. I don't see any reason why either should be there, all that will do is limit the amount of people who actually play the mode
  • CapriciousCapricious Posts: 215 ★★
    @Quattrucci you literally just described a scenario where equity would absolutely work in a video game this can’t be compared to life. You just don’t want your account to be invalidated, hence why I said some of you guys are ducking the smoke. A little kid should not be able to beat you just because they’re using composite champions. Unless you’re only good because of the RNG blessing you with top tier champs of course. Then maybe you’re right to worry.
