Incursions is Dying due to Inflation

Incursion is one of my favorite modes in the game. I religiously play it with my incursion buddy every week for the milestones and every month for the monthly rewards. But for the effort, the rewards has been so affected by game economy inflation that it almost amounts to nothing.

By comparing each game mode by how much 6* shards you can earn from them:

Battlegrounds (beta) = 8,000~10,000 per week; 32,000~40,000 per month

Monthly Event Quest (Cavalier) = 7,500 per month plus rankup materials

Alliance War (Gold) = 10,000 per month plus rankup materials

Side Quest = *varies* 4,000~15,000 per month plus rankup materials

Arena (hitting all milestones on both basic and featured) = 1,000 per week; 4,000 a month plus battlechips and units

Black ISO Store (Sigil) = 1,500 per week; 6,000 a month

...and then we have Incursions. Grinding all the milestones plus buying the shards with the incursion shards will give you:

1,250 (Monthly milestones) plus 2,000 (32k shards) = 3,250 shards (without rankup materials) for a month of effort.

I hope an update to Incursions will be up this year, 6* Incursion Crystals to fill what our roster lacks in terms of niche utility like the 5* Incursion Crystals are doing. It's a fun mode and I hope it doesn't die like Dungeons did.

    I agree. We haven’t had an incursions about in a while.

    It’s my fav mode (BG is getting up there too) and I play it for fun.

    I think the incursion store needs to updated for sure

    Sadly I haven’t touched incursions since my two real-life friends and in game partners dropped the game (except for occasional log ins) after over 6 years each.

    It was a fun mode—when you managed to get decent controls response.

    But I get your point @Vendemiaire —the team has let incursions suffer while trying to promote BGs. Always seems to be that way with this game.

    for me ,64,000 artifact for a six star nexus will do

    I agree with the point. If the store had a better time to 6 star acquisition ratio I would play incursions more.

    I too agree. I play with my in game buddy every week. We push for as much as possible during reset. Do 1 set of sector 7. Then rest of the month we run it just for room 5.

    It’s due for an update: add some rank up mats in it (nothing crazy) lower the reset time for 6 star shards; increase the amount, decrease price.

    I think the milestones are fine and maybe increase the 5 and 6 star shards in each room prize.

    Yeah little to no point in playing incursions with those rewards. I play it twice a month and sometimes I skip it entirely at this point.

    Incursions are like 20 minutes of excitement spread over an hour of gameplay.

    Incursions still exists? Haven't played it in nearly a year

    Most of the times I 3ven forget that something like Incursions exist in the game
    I remember playing a few matches & actually liking the mode with those pickup abilities that enhance ur champions
    But the rewards don't justify the time investment
    And the game has been so much time demanding in past couple years that it's just not viable for many people to devote any time in incursions

    I completely agree with this post, incursions has been ignored for too long
    I would like a single player mode for incursions

    A big part of why no one touches it is scheduling difficulty

    Playing with a random player is just a gamble that I normally lose and champs go on cooldown after 3 stages because the rando left or stopped moving

    Single player would resolve this completely, and while the rewards are Little compared to other game modes it will still be viable with minor tweaks

    Incursions are dieing cause the mode isn't good.

    It is too time consuming and too reliant on quality partners for mediocre rewards
