Sorry if this has been requested before, but couldn't find an answer anywhere, so thought i'd request it myself
I been finding when queuing up for competitive games to get the assessed stratagems, that, no one plays the competitive games. Longest i've waited, is probably about half an hour to an hour while i went off doing other things ingame, like looking on exchange or crafting or something.
Speaking to others on FB and ingame chat, i'm getting the same response, that no one plays the missions to get the stratagems.
Just a thought, but since no one plays these games, and it does make it hard to get the gear from said rep, any chance the devs can reduce the cooldown to get the gems from within the rep itself by turning in marks?
Currently its a 20 hour cooldown. I was thinking maybe one every half hour. That would be roughly be about 10-15 minutes longer than doing 1 mission from the queue. This would just make it a bit easier for us to get the gear from within the rep, instead of just getting one gem a day, or maybe 2 if we are lucky if we do the hourly rep project that provides a box we open.
If this is implemented, to help stop people from abusing the system, my other thought was, because people might get the clever idea of claiming the gems via the rep, then start abusing it by joining the queues to get even more, i suggest, implement a cooldown timer of 24 hours on rep queues if we claim just one single gem from within the rep. And likewise, if we join just one single queue and finish the queue, there will be a 24 hour cooldown to stop us from claiming any gems at all. If we exit the queue just after it starts, it will be treated as if we have completed it. If you get disconnected, then that's too bad. This is an idea, to curb abuse of the system.
This idea is to try to help us gain gems as quickly as we can get the other reps.... special currency i will call it,(Elite marks was the term i was looking for lol), but also to curb abusers for the competitive games reputation only!
All other reps will remain as they are. Again, this idea is for competitive games only.
It's the above, OR...
the devs implement stratagems to be accessible across ALL PvE queues
. Which, would probably be a better idea. So, no matter what queue we do, we will be able to get those gems.
I am one person, that has many, many toons. And getting those gems across all my toons, will be painfully slow as the current systems stands for competitive games.
So, if the devs agree and people throw their support into one of these ideas, then hopefully we can gain some traction on it and see these gems more easily accessed.
I understand also that some people dont even bother with the rep itself or the gear in the rep, or both. That is fine. But this is for those who do want to get up to rank 6 of the rep and to also get the gear.
Hopefully tho, we will see some positive comments below
I believe God created the universe, because he knew we wanted to explore. So, he made us a playground...
