to clarify things in advance, i reached prestige rank 10 so far..
i really dislike some stuff you posted
Completing bounties is just a bad design, why not make do x amount of bounty stages so we are not "forced" to do the shortest and easiest bounties to complete the task
Increasing the sanctuary Onslaught form 3 to 8 rounds isnt "Degrindification!" it is the opposite.
Now the new acts:
Daily: 5 syndicates is ok
transmuting mods is... meh i have been playing this game since 2013 and havent used transmutation, i absolutly dislike those gaming like mechanics (yeah i know, no money involved but still super random)
Deplay an Air support charge in a mission... well first make air support actually worth to use?
Pet your Kubrow... more useless busywork, maybe i am not that manga anime cosmetic fanatical guy, i care about fun gameplay, thats why i PLAY games
3 Kuva siphons is great
3 K-drive Races arent, K-drives are just boring and so is searching the races on the boring, empty but beautiful venus open world
i think this task is ok, kinda challenging and new players might learn to play with their operators better
everything i havent mentioned are GOOD changes.
anyway even after the improvements i have to say, nightwave could be alot better
i dont know why but it feels like DE lost most of their inspiration and fervor (dunno if this is the right word) for the game.
