Suggestion: More feats. May get a lot of hate for this

    Mostly for long time players
    I was thinking today what made me play more in the past than I do now, and one of the reasons was chasing feats
    Add more grind feats:
    add 750 1000, 1500, 2000 2500, 5000 for Solo's, Duo's, Alert's, Create items, Salvage Items. and dare I say it, gulp, Exobit collecting up to 50k.
    We do these anyway and may give more incentive to play more

    It will happen at some point. There`s just not enough content to warrant the SP buff and i`m sure you don`t want another stat clamp cause that`s what it`ll mean if they add more feats now. :p

    Does anyone really still grinds for exos? I did the 10k a few years ago and haven't really touched an exobit spot since then. Grindy feats are okay as long as I don't get forced to run a certain episode for that and as long as I do them anyways. "Run X raids" would be ok. "Legends PvE " not so much.

    The main difference between those feat grinds and today is when you had those there was not much else to do in the game, to keep thou playing so you had more time to do that type of thing. Now there is a lot more content to keep you more active in the game. that is one of the reason that a lot of those grinding feats are given to those that level to 100 cvs.
    The game seems to have gone towards the casual player that plays a few hours a week as opposed to those that this ids the main game they play.
    That's why all these new DOC have the same crafting, salvaging and such feats. Not only are the casual players working on the current feats but they are working on the original feats at the same time. In the end it helps close the gap a little from the have and have not in the SP debate.
    I'm all for feats but I would rather have more content oriented feats as opposed to grind feats.

    Since you can get exobits/bytes from many other places now, the only way an new increased feat to that would be acceptable would be if they expanded the definition of what counts towards the feat. You used to need to farm exos to craft, now they are handed to you in TCs and old content. It used to be if you farmed extra, you could make money off of it. Now the market is flooded with exos, so it's basically farming to delete them (if you are going after the feats).

    I find a lot of FEATS these days are in the Raids.

    Grind feats? I don't like that engineering.
  11. spack2k Steadfast Player

    Yeah? i find there are more in the TC these days, maybe because they release 3 TC while just 1 episode in the same amount of time.

    Oh I just meant genuine FEATS (game-play) but yes definitely there is more FEATS in Time Capsules. A lot of 50 pointers. Shame.

    I prefer feats like this...

    I'm no doctor but... - 25 feat points
    In the Meta Research Wing Solo (Hero version), break a healing barrel nearby and perform the thumbs up emote when Supergirl says "...maybe when I don't feel so sick".

    Personality im against more grind feats and i think the game should get rid of certain typical feats ie no more feats for making mods. I would much rather feats for doing difficult content and not just get every combo and feats you get accidentally but feats that take handwork and communication.

    Give another feat for Tokens of Merit, make it absurdly high if you wish. Tired of having to throw them away like used drink coasters.

    How about we just make exobit clusters count towards the exobit farming feats?

    There are some inherent issues with this idea. Let's look at the idea of say increasing the number of solos a player can do and still earn feats. OKAY fine IF the devs give us solos to do that also allow us to progress.... Look back at the game we have now.

    After Tier 3 we have no solo content at all during tier 4 and a total of two solos in tier 5. Now look at end game... We had exact 1 solo challenge available during the launch of Amazon Fury 3, none at all during Age of Justice, again none during Riddled with Crime and STILL none available doing Earth 3 content. So basically your proposal presents yet another situation where a player, who may not have hours and hours to run content JUST to get ONE feat, forces all players to go back and run content that aside from THAT feat will give them nothing but an Alternate reward box and some useless armor they can salvage.

    Look the game already has a ton of stuff that does that now... Do the 500 Rogues Bounty feat... That requires a player to spend a minimum of 56 days hunting down 9 rogues in three different cities. Then lets talk about the so called simpler ones.

    There is a feat for completing all 10 of the different missions the contact at Ace Chemical can assign. Of course thanks to the games RNG you never know what mission you will get.. I have had alts still running back there above CR 100 trying to coax that last mission out of the contact.. Just to refresh your memory you can START running missions at Ace and Stryker's at Cr 70.

    Let's stay at Ace and include Strykers.. Two different feats for completing the solo challenges at both locations enough times to obtain all 8 pieces of gear they hand out. Now ... to get either of those missions a player needs to complete five (5) daily missions at each location. So unless you use a huge amount of replays you can only do one daily mission a day so it takes 40 days or more just to complete that ONE feat at each location.

    Let's stay at CR 70.. and switch to the feats involving the defeat of the Siege Bot (metropolis) and the Morrow bot (gotham). Each has a feat assigned for defeating thebot ten times. Now THAT can be accomplished in ten days (IF YOU CAN FIND A TEAM TO TAKE ON OUT.. at Cr 70 you do not just run to the Steelworks in Metropolis or Arkham Asylum in Gotham and attack a bot) But both also hand out a special style of armor and there is a feat for getting all of that as well. NOW the rng comes into play again because you could defeat, as example, the Mbot in Gotham five days in a row and get the exact same piece of gear. I had alts still running back to Gotham or Metropolis at CR 150 or higher TRYING to get that last piece of gear to drop.

    Lets go back even LOWER that Cr 70.... and look at running the Bottled Building duos located in Gotham. Let's see we have feats for completed those a total of 99 times... There are THREE duos so depending on your CR if you even want to get an alternate reward box once you pass the relevancy of the mission you either only run them once a day for 33 days OR as some one ages ago pointed out you can just go to Gotham and walk in and run the repeatedly for no rewards at all.

    Oh and let us not foget on those same bottles building duos there are feats for Rescuing 250 civilians, Setting 250 bombs to blow up 250 cables and destroying 250 pods that produce more Brainiac bots. Those all take a lot of time to complete as well.. Of course if you are running 99 duos eventually you get all three of those YAY! :rolleyes:

    Let's head to the Wastelands.. Special FEAT for defeating Jack, Julius and James a total of 17 times BUt here is the thing THOSE missions are only available after you complete five daily missions from each contact in the zone so Wonder Woman will give you the "special" extra brother mission. Once again .. either spend a ton of replays to do more than one set of dailies a day or spend thirty days running dailies and the duo to get the feat. Added bonus.. there is a special set of armor that drops
    doing that special mission and it has a special set of armor that has a feat as well.. and by the time you have run 17 duos you have all 8 pieces since OMG you actually get to pick what you want or need in those THANK GOD

    I can go on and on and on and on and on .. the point is the game already has enough GRIND involved in just doing what is needed to get the gear you need to increase your Cr and as you can PLAINLY see we have a TON of stuff that requires grind to get feats as is without adding any more. HOW about a few feats that DON'T require a life time commitment to accomplish?
