It takes WAY to long to gain iridescent shards
Just did the math, if you want to buy one of the shrine perks which in this case the one at the bottom (the tapp perk) it cost 2,700. Rn at my level I amgetting about 270 shards (level 40) and It takes me 3750 to level up but gonna put it up for 4000 for this. Mostly every game or if you get unlucky is about 400-500 xp. So ten times 270 equals 2700 if every level gave you that amount, and then it takes in this case to make it a little bit easier 4000 xp to level up each time. So, if you were to get a shrine perk that cost 2700 it would take 80 OR MORE GAMES (back then it took 550 per perk and you got about 10 each game so it took about 55 matches to get a perk back then) unless if you want somethin from the shop such as a puple cosmetic, well either throw money at them or play more than 310 GAMES FOR A WHOLE PURPLE OUTFIT for iridescent shards. This is kinda like ea's situation with battlefront 2 but not as scummy (but ea was for other things, not cosmetics). It'll take a [BAD WORD] ton of play time to get it, but you can easily pay money to get it quickly.
