Youtubers are going to buy them regardless of whether it's fun or not. They just want the stuff immediately and to show their viewers. If they really cared about whether it's fun or not, they'd play for like tier 20 and then buy the rest, but if they buy it instantly, they would've done so even if it was easier.
There's definitely a minimum number of games you need to do, but it's hard to figure that out. Right now I'm at tier 13 and I've JUST finished Tome 1 so I'm assuming each tome gives the same amount or slightly less or more. Even that is just tier 52 for 13 x 4. You definitely need to play extra games even after completing the tomes and even more if you can't finish them.
Just got to aim for one rank a day, should be manageable
Ive completed about 50 games and i'm only on tier 11 because I don't enjoy playing killer. At all.
Then, since I have a real life, being able to get to tier 47 in just a few more days of the event is literally impossible. Unless we will be able to earn Sirum after the event expires(the rift closes in 61 days, the even ends in 2[?]).... I have no reason at all to even attempt to complete it. The cosmetics are mostly junk and can be bought in the shop. So that being said, I will not be purchasing anything premium. If you can play so much that you can get through all of that in the small window of time then you're a legend.
Cosmetics get you tunneled most of the time anyway. I'd rather take No Mither as my only perk lol
The serum is on the Rift until the Rift closes. It's not going away.
So you can continue to get the serum after the events done? I dont remember reading that but that makes it a little better. It also goes against all previous events where once its done you have 2ish weeks to spend it.
Do you have to do the killer events in the rift to open the 2nd page? I see people talking about the third page objectives being insanely hard. But i cannot access the 2nd page yet.
I assume the tomes are progressive. The next Tome is scheduled to unlock on November 13. At that time I will see if I can access any of the challenges as I have reached the final node on Tome 1 following the survivor path.
Each level of the Tome is time-gated. Level 2 will unlock Nov 13. Level 3 will unlock Nov 27. Level 4 will unlock Dec 18. I don't think you need to complete the challenges on the previous level to work on the next level.
As @TragicSolitude said, the serum is tied to the rift, not the event. Only the offerings and the event hooks / generators will be removed when the event ends.
You not wanting to play killer is on you. It's fine if you don't like it, but don't expect the devs to change the way something works because you refuse to play the other half of the game.
Oh ok i missed the Nov 13th unlock, i only saw Nov 27th. Cool.
Not the point of anything i said. If it requires you to play a specific role to complete the battle pass then its not worth it.
The same can be said to the devs from the player. Don't expect me to change my play style so you can get money off me. I won't pay for the premium battle pass if i HAVE to play killer. You want to, that's on you.
