Will the season 1 rewards be available in an alternative way as soon as season 2 starts? Right now, due to how little time i have to play games anymore, i'm only sitting at rank 9. I've had my eye on that umbra forma and wolf armor, but i know now that there's no possible way for me to get to the max rank to get them before the end of the season.
Will season 2 be less of a grind comparatively too? Honestly, while the thought of the nightwave made me think that i'd dedicate more time to playing the game, it kinda did the opposite for me and quite a few others because i felt like it was too much to do, and pushed me away from wanting to play sometimes. it felt like a chore, and i honestly hoped it wouldn't feel like that. The grind is one of the biggest issues in this game (not grinding in general, but excessive grind) and having an entire system with cosmetic and non-cosmetic rewards locked behind a grind like this doesn't help.
EDIT: Side note, i felt like the wolf himself didn't spawn nearly commonly enough. I was actively trying to get him to spawn whenever i played, but he never did... not even once. as a result, I'm certain I'm gonna miss out on the wolf hammer too.
Personally, i think a better change to be made to the system would've been to make it like a syndicate and allow players to choose the rewards they wanted instead of forcing them to go through ranks upon ranks just to get the one or two rewards they actually wanted.
