Do You Plan on Doing the Upcoming Race on May 4 Flashback
My friend and I plan on doing the upcoming race on May 4 Flashback ! This will be our first raced played ever and we are super hyped to see how far we would go. Even though we might not make it to the top of the standings we wanted to play regardless knowing that we could get the the highest tier of rewards, but a funny thing we learned about the race is that you are not guaranteed any item besides the initial "Sin and Innocence Mystery Box" at level 35. Unfortunately you are put in a raffle system with all the other players to get a very small chance at to get the items/sets this was very disheartening to us and made me think why even opt in when you are not guaranteed anything from it. The interested gamers can buy chaos orbs poe from those professional online gaming houses in the most affordable cost.
I have asked and some people said their entire guild didn't even receive one item from these draws. Seeing that this another level of rng. Seems to be for the amount of effort put in by some goes unrewarded to some. What i don't understand is why not just reward people that put in effort and lock it to one reward per account. I feel this would make for a more rewarding event if you were given something for your efforts. My main draw to the event was seeing these super cool MTX's being shown as rewards , and I was completely willing to give my time to play for them. However seeing that there is not much of a chance at acquiring it even after putting in the time makes my time feel under valued by GGG in this aspect.
Don't get me wrong here I love PoE and GGG they make the ARPG currently without a doubt I have put many hours into it for that reason, but I just don't see the reasoning to why GGG wouldn't just award players from taking time away from the league to play a race when in the league you can play towards guaranteed rewards versus a chance.
The chance of getting MTX is just a neat little bonus, the real reason to play the race is because it will have FOUR leagues active at once at all times. and its not voided, meaning your character will go to standard when its over. Its Legacy League redux just less controllable.
