How I now spend my time playing MCOC

BulmktBulmkt Posts: 1,602 ★★★★
Just thought I'd share how I now spend my time playing MCOC.

Share how you spend your time and what aspects of the game you always make sure you play vs those parts of the game you are happy to ignore.

    This week was mostly free. Currently only doing magica arena challenges with alarm set everyday. I cleaned up Act 8 remaining path in about 2 day, only few were remaining in 8.1 and 8.2.


    Rest i m prepping myself for next WoW, SQ, Paragauntlet, AW, BGs.
    I do finish paragauntlet in first week.
    BG i mostly make good progress in last few days. I reach Vib in first few days and wait.

    That‘s a topic near and dear to me, because at times I can find myself sucked into the game more than I like to admit… So I actively try to limit playtime and effort put into the game. That‘s basically by 4 pillars:

    1.
    Most importantly, I am not in an active alliance. Rather, I am the only member in my own solo-alliance. I do Map 4 AQ 1x per week, which gives me about 2k Glory on average, and also some miniscule rewards from the Alliance Objectives (Summoner Advancement and Engagement).

    2.
    In monthly EQ I do only TB and Paragauntlet. SQ depends on the mode and the rewards.

    3.
    Arenas I limit to one arena at a time, most of the time it‘s the basic arena where I will do 20-30 rounds in total spread over 3 days.

    4.
    Battlegrounds is 3 matches every 2 days, regardless of how many I win or lose. This generally leaves me at either Diamond I or Vibranium III at the end of a season (have never reached GC)

    I consider these elements as my „grind“… And this level of grind leaves me with a bit of extra capacity, to also participate in other areas of the game. Like the occasional incursion run, participation in WoW, exploring 8.4 when it drops…

    Also, I don‘t spend (anymore).

    For the time being, that works for me. I guess I‘ll see what will keep me motivated, once Act 8 is explored…

    How about you guys and gals?

    Tks for extensive post.

    Only a few in my alliance run with AQ Map 6 - but we at least complete it and earn around 3,500 glory each week.

    We seem to do the same re EQ.

    As for AQ I might get to play 30mins each night while the family watches something on TV.

    And I just play BG’s and complete the 48hr BG objectives and I seem to advance…

    Currently chipping away at act 7 exploration, done 3 paths of the labyrinth for fun (I really want that 5* classic ultron) and waiting for the new EQ, WOW and BG's.

    I think this season I will actually push for GC in BG's given the Valiant store buff, and start slowly getting my avengers team awakened and sigged up, as well as my Zemo for the carinas challenges.

    Of course I will slowly work towards these things but my main goals this coming update will be BG's and the next 2 carinas.

    @G-Hun-Gear if you want to get a few more rewards with pretty much the same effort, join my no-stress alliance. Look me up in game, we can talk there.

    @Badah Thanks, I’m good.

    3,500 glory is nice… But Map 6 would be too much for my solo alliance. Map 4 is very short. In my time zone, AQ starts at 8 pm and I am usually done before noon the next day…

    For this month you have done exploration of the 3 lower difficulties, right? That would be nice for the units. I’ve decided against it, because even with autoplay, it still draws one’s attention…

    You mean arena? Yeah, that’s my evening-chill out, too…

    Same… How far does it get you?

    I throw my phone across the house every day, after spending 4 hours trying to contend with act 7. (I reached 7.4.6 yesterday, yay!) then spend the rest of the day waiting time on global.

    Am in a BG focused ally and my own personal preference BG is the only thing I enjoy playing in the game right now.

    I'm in a slump now, after the whole Absorbing Man incident. I move in AQ and War, and I did the Rift SQ, but I'm feeling a lack of motivation. It happens I guess.

    I’m really debating how I use my time now, and it’s already quite restricted from last year. Esp under the assumption that Abs is waiting for us again at the end of Woe? Do I bother with getting everything out of it?

    Nothing wrong with that mate. It might take some time to find your mojo. But game time spent playing is a balance
