BATTLEGROUNDS! PAY TO PLAY!

So I guess by getting rid of the energy timers for champs they decided to lock all the rewards behind paying for the energy to play. Not energy token refills. The energy tokens themselves. If you want them. Pay for them. Can you earn them? No. Is the game in that desperate need of money that you have to charge people money to play it? Oh but you can still play with regular energy and get some scraps! Get out of here. This is coming from a player that buys the sigil every month, that gets the summoner event tokens, that buys July fourth packages, and… well used to be a big spender on the gifting event. Kabam finds a way to make a fun game mode but then forces you to pay if you want the rewards. I’m just about done with this game. You lost a whale.
If you find the game mode fun you can play the free mode all day long as I understand it.
I for one do not want BG to be only about the rewards and the leaderboard. I want this to be a fun time, and with all of the many many many ways we have to get rewards and rank up materials and shards these days, I am not fussed about how BG hands them out.
Can they improve on what they've put out? Sure, and I'm guessing they will. But this iteration has been out for like four hours now, so don't you think it is a little early to quit the game over your gripes? Not that I care, but it just seems like a massive overreaction.
Preferred solution is to let energy refills count for rewards. It's a limited resource and people would still buy refills for units. Not being able to compete without paying isn't fun. Appreciate skill can get you some tokens but for the milestones you need more tokens.
But you are a casual spender. Think you have your terms mixed up.
And if you think they built, teased and hyped this new event mode just so you play for free then you are living in some fantasy land. And though you say you’ve been playing for awhile, it shows you haven’t learned anything in how they develop content.
Depending on where you are in the Gladiator's Circuit, you should be able to earn Elder's Mark.
Uru～Quantum - 30 Elder's Mark per 5 wins
Mysterium～Celestial - 30 Elder's Mark per 3 wins
Add a few in Arena, Side Quests, and/or Event Quests.
I'm right there with you about trying to have fun with it but people have a legitimate gripe about the elder mark cost vs how many elder mark you can earn without spending units.
