  • Performance now can yield better results for the final Dog Days mission! Mission 4 now yields 1 Nakak Pearl per kill in addition to the 50 given at end of mission. More kills, more Pearls! 

Heeere we go! Now I have a reason to get back to it even though I already got 1 of each item!

I mean, kinda outright states "we will have more feedback implemented when DOG DAYS returns, including fixes for AI and more. ". When Dog Days returns next year and there's no price changes, then you're free to complain as you see fit. It's a bit of a bandaid for now, sure, but maybe they didn't want to piss off players who already bought a ton of stuff with their pearls before a price drop. Granted, with the added change of getting an extra pearl for each kill (and that you can still just afk farm it), the prices are more tolerable now.

Technically they did it indirectly. I mean, in 5 minutes average team usually scores about 80+ points, so pearl per kill means you exit with 130+ points. That's about 20 minutes of active gameplay per 500 points ball while before you had to suffer for an hour and 2-3 missions per 300 point ball. Would be nice to drop that down even further, but it isn't quite as bad already. At this point I'd rather have more weapons there and less broken default gun.

1 pearl for kill ,wow what an improvement 

I know, right? Why it wasn't there from the beginning, though, boggles my mind. It's like one of the most obvious things. Effort must be rewarded or people will look for the most effortless way to do it.

Thank the powers that be. Fantastic change, should've been that way from the start.

Not that this supposed 'grind' was ever hard. Slightly over an hour a day for the duration of the event, that's it. Easy peasy. The only problem was that performance changed nothing about your rewards. Now we're actually properly rewarded for scoring kills. Should've been this way from day 1.

I mean, the 'loot' isn't even random this time. There's no need to run a mission over and over, hoping this time you get the drop you want. You can just buy the drops you want, no duplicates, no fuss. The only way it could possibly be easier is if DE mailed you the rewards for logging in.

People will complain about anything I guess.

Now what will be done about the rampant kill steals.

Before at least people shared in the fun, now people attack anything with a low healthbar, stealing a pearl from people who put in the work.

Except then you realize that pearls given from kills arn't shared and only given to those who get the final shot, so your estimated 130 pearls per run goes down to like 60-80 per run depending on how much you get KS'ed or not.

I still think the store is way overpriced, and I'm amazed that you opened the event with such horrendous numbers, but I do appreciate you listening to some feedback, DE. 

EDIT: See my next comment.

Whoa whoa whoa, hold on a second!

The extra pearls you get are only attached to your kills, not the overall team score, which would earn you maybe an extra 20 pearls per run of constant running around.

Compare that to 50 pearls of a moment's gameplay followed by AFK waiting. You do the math.

I hate being hyperbolic but DE, is this a joke to you? What is this thinly-veiled attempt at silencing criticism by providing the bare minimum of communication?

This is barely an improvement to the event. is it better? yes, but its still an unreasonably huge amount of grind time. it's at best reduced the time by 1/3rd, which is significant yes, but not good enough. it should be that you get a pearl for every kill across the whole team, ie whatever the final score is. this would make the grind at minimum 3x faster and even then it would still feel like a bit much. especially to anyone busy with other things in their lives which DE consistently seems to downright hate. Nobody wants to spend an hour every day for a week doing nothing but this extremely repetative event. It's a fun little change of pace to the base game to just do a round here and there, but when you make it this grindy it stops being fun real fast and becomes a chore, a chore that players will slog through for no other reason than the satisfaction of never having to do it again. This is exactly what happened with fissures.
