Sortie prize rework ('minor')

Recommended Posts

Replace current sortie reward system with currency granting on success, and shop linked on it. Two different models for currency gain from sorties. One with currency from last sortie only and second for giving some currency from any sortie mission done successful.

The fixed model would give single currency from completing last sortie.

The another model gives some currency based what sortie mission was done. First sortie would give 1 unit, second sortie 2 units and last sortie 3 or 4 units of currency. Possibly last sortie could give even more currency, like 7 ( rounding whole sortie as 10 currency amount) It would give weight to also make last one, when ever possible.

For the sortie shop, one random prize from sortie pool would cost you 10 points, or what ever is the point amount of completing all sorties in one cycle. Player can buy only single purchase from the sortie shop for each sortie cycle. Each individual current sortie prize would have its own relatively higher cost. One wants random riven, it costs 35 points. Ayatan anasa sculpture would cost 20 points. 4K Endo would cost 15 points, 6k Kuva 25 points. Random booster (3d) 60 points, any selected booster 100 points. Forma 120 points, Exilus adapter 140 points. Orokin potatoes 200 for selected one and finaly Legendary core 500 points. These example prices are based on 10 point sortie total rewards.

If one wants to promote gambling with sortie prizes, there could be random prize items for sale that would give randomly one of the sets price, like Endo-prize and might have one extra that cannot be bought directly. Endo-reward would have one of the following:Ayatan sculpture,4k endo and 20k endo prize(uncommon) or bucket full of ayatan stars(rare), but the Endoset prize would cost player 40 points.

Also this sortie shop could have seasonal or time based offers that can be bought with sortie currency. Maybe also sortie giver specific, if its Corpus it could have some different items on the shop than infested or greneer. also if mission triplet ends with assassination of the sortie topic, something extra could appear on sortie shop.

And if you want to bound some items to be available just for people that did current sorties, add additional 'Sortie day' currency item that will be lost when new sorties are been generated. This way you need to make that days sorties to able buy some very special items from sortie shop, that are bound to the current boss or faction, even they cost like 30+ sortie points.

Or variety items would be available lower prices, depending sortie set types, if you have this 'today sorties done'-currency item.

They want gated content behind RNG. It's what keeps people playing, wondering what they'll get today.

It's a reason Augur Secrets drops so rarely.

It's the reason the Acolytes are so rare and the mods are so powerful. It's also the reason the mods they drop are veiled until mission completion.
