Did they ever make the Nemesis missions work better?

Haven't played in a while so sorry for my ignorance, but previously you could never play a Nemesis mission when you actually wanted to, you just had to hope you randomly got attacked by Nem minions and got a clue. To me this is horrible design, because those minions only attack in open world maps and half the time we're not in open world maps we're doing instanced missions. People actually spent time designing their Nems and want to fight them regularly, so did they ever make the Nem missions work better? As in you can actually play them when you want to?

    Nem system hasn't changed in ages, other than adding Save the Earth, but it's trivial to spawn nemesis missions, they have a 6h cd so you can't do them too fast, but once it resets a minute blowing up chairs is sufficient to spawn a clue.

    You can go to Monster Island, find the lava cave and try keep on spawning minions and your nemesis.

    hunting Nem clues is one of many reasons why you'll see people going around MC smashing chairs. Picking up boost orbs create by smashing objects will spawn nem minions

    The best place to go to smash chairs in order to get a Nemesis Clue, at least if you are willing to make a short journey from Ren Cen, is the place where Harden is getting ready to speak behind the Until/Unity building area. No doubt the dumbest aspect of the system, but one none of us really want to see "fixed" because it is the fastest way to run through the Nem missions.

    My problem was some of the later ones you needed a team to play them. I just thought that was dumb. Its your Nemesis not a teams.

    That's kind of vague. Which HQ? Here's a link to the wiki page listing the Nemesis missions http://www.championswiki.com/index.php?title=Nemesis_Missions , Maybe that will help you figure out which one was the problem? The only 2 missions that require a team are Nemesis Confrontation and the Save the Earth alert. My favorite is Bunker Buster. Just wish it didn't have such a high glitch rate.

    Sorry for the vague. It was the building in the city where you could pickup alot of missions Unity maybe.

    Yeah probably Nemcon, you used to have to go into the Unity/Until building to get it.
