Should I bother with the event?
I love the game and I love how you decide to give us events so that the game changes a bit from time to time. It's really very much appreciated.
However, I'm a bit concerned about the idea behind the events.
This one in particular requires a lot of grinding. Grinding that is thought around the idea we can devote a nice amount of hours towards the completion of the event objectives, but can we really?
Let's start with killers. 1 point per hook? Say you have an average of 8 hooks per trial if every survivor is hooked twice, so you would need 13 games where no one dies on the first hook, no one DCs and no one hides well enough to survive the trial without you finding them at all.
Now this brings me to the 2nd question, why would survivors stop doing gens to save that guy that was hooked when they could be adding the huge amount of 4 points to their event count by completing those gens? Yes, 4 points per gen lol... you need to complete 25 gens to get a coin. No one repairs 5 gens per trial and the average would be around 2 per survivor, 3 if we would want to be optimistic, per trial. That takes us to an average of 9 to 13 games. Right now, if you are a PS4 user, 9 games could be played in about... 5 to 6 hours at night, when a lot of us that work and have a life besides gaming can actually get to play... 1 or 2 games per hour if you're lucky and you're not lobbydodged. And no one guarantees you will actually complete any gen before you get killed or tunneled to death after half of your survivor mates DC.
Now, 20 points for surviving seems like a good number if only you had the chance to grab the vessel, that's if people actually had bloodpoints to buy extra envelopes so that at least 4 vessels spawn. At lvl50 you need around 50k points to complete the bloodweb, you make 50k points in around 3 games, if lucky. That's probably 3 games with no envelopes burned as your offering until you renew your bloodweb and envelopes show up. Probably 3 games with no 20 extra points, and that's only if you survive, and we know survival rates are really not that good...
I do love the idea of events and making them fun, but either be a bit more "generous" when it comes to point rewards, or extend the event so that people who can't devote their life to the game can actually get the chance to farm anything at all. PS4 wait times are not our fault, it's yours. Toxicity in the game is our fault, yes... but you do nothing to stop a lot of toxic behaviors usually deemed "legit". Hallowed Blight wasn't bad, at least after you decided to make survivor and killer vials count towards the same goal... you could fill up a vial in a single trial or trial and a half.
I'm not asking to be given cosmetics for free but the current points would work great if the game worked great and I could actually get to play 5 to 6 games an hour. PS4 isn't the case. Let alone the toxicity of a big part of the community who will go out of their way simply to ruin the gaming experience of others.
Hopefully I will be wrong and we will all enjoy the awesome new cosmetics (not a fan of Ace's tho). Hopefully!
