    I fashioned a voodoo doll in his likeness and super glued it to the old PS3 game disk. Said a few magic incantations and now he ain't going nowhere.

    Why are people encouraging a Nightmare Material lol :eek: you know for a 100% fact that it will be 400 Casino Tokens, why would I have to farm 400 marks just for a material or wait the majority of a year for it to fall out of relevance to buy with source marks. Would be considerably easier to earn if it was in a time capsule or booster bundle rather than wasting replays chasing a 10 point feat.

    Because appealing rewards in the vendor keep people playing and don't cost money.

    Time capsules don't have to cost money unless you really want to argue the membership cost route but then you still earn stabilizer keys as free to play so.. You could also get the material without stabilizer keys or replays (because are you going to state how long it would take to naturally earn 400 marks?) by simply buying it from the marketplace. Instead of forcing players to run content they are already tired of which is why there has been a mass exodus of players after the first few weeks of the episode.
  8. Proxystar #Perception

    Generally speaking the free route to time capsules doesn't provide enough to feasibly complete anything with the RNG outside of pure luck and RNG might also mean you never get it outside of quarks or using virtual currency.

    A vendor reward has no RNG considerations and requires no spend in either real currency or virtual currency and is thus appealing.

    It is on the player to continue to run content and these extra rewards actually encourage that and reward players for doing so, which is something positive for the game, people that leave the game and content after they're personally done with progress don't really help others in the community by keep content active, so I have very little sympathy for them.

    If you keep playing or even have a very casual alt you play these additional rewards are very easy to have enough marks for by the time they come around, even playing naturally. :)

    Pretty underwhelming rewards IMO, focusing on more individual style items outside of the Episode's existing gear suit-style sets would be better. These Materials and Auras feels a little like leftover/filler stuff, the Accessory-category feels underitilized in comparison to the amount of Materials and Auras being pushed out.

    The Bonus Currency is ALWAYS appreciated, however!

    It's a way to keep people playing the game, plus, episode rewards are one of the few things you can get for free (In TCs it may take you over 150 days playing for the same capsule with the daily free stabilizers to get a single material). Wayne tokens will stay relevant for a few hundred days, which means no replays are required to get the material. And... If you don't want to play the episode, then don't have the episode related rewards or like you said wait for the source mark conversion, simple as that.

    If you started farming tokens for the material this bonus week by the next week you'd probably have enough tokens already.

    What do you mean? Former heroes who became villains? Out of the ones I listed the only one that fits that description is the Dystopian Amazon style inspired by Donna Troy. Maybe the style inspired by The Merciless could be counted too, at a push. Other than those two the rest are straight up villains.

    I echo Irvynnge's comments above. None of these rewards particularly appeal to me, but that's life. Not everything will appeal to everyone, and that's ok. We all have free will and can choose whether or not to obtain them.

    The Nightmare material is 100% going to be locked behind a paywall

    Running the raids 1 time each, even FF level 5 which 0.1% are going to be able to do, the 2 weeklies at 48, and then just the 3 mark dailies and alert daily will not equal 400 marks after the second week. Nice try ;) . If "farming" included spending mass replays then it's very much not free and costs plenty of cash to be able to continually reset content.

    Oh, I agree. I usually use materials (although I wish they made more matte materials) to make the looks more cohesive. But it's so interesting to see the comparison. I kinda wish they would could go back and retexture old styles, there are some great styles that could use a little touch-up.

    Actually you do have enough time within the 1 week timeframe to get the the 400 marks needed.

    You should get about 10 marks each day from dailies/duo/alert. Doing every day means 70
    There are 2 weekly missions for 8 each which means 16 more marks for the week
    Than the 2 raids which are 10 each, so 20.

    So that 106. Triple week means that you get 318. Not enough right? You are missing 82. Well technically the weekly reset starts before the even ends. You so you have enough time to do more stuff to get the remaining marks. The 2 bounties are easy enough to get within a few minutes especially since there are still people doing it before the even ends. That the 2 bounties alone are 48 marks. And if you just do the event versions of the raids just for the marks that means you get the 60 marks fast.

    And all of that is assuming you don’t have the head augments which give you extra marks

    I'll make sure to set my alarm for 4am so that I can hop on and do my dailies. Also it is never just 400 marks is it? Have you taken a look at the vendor since release? It's 1,350 Casino Tokens for all the rewards. For the feats you need a Material - Aura - Hairstyle. That is 400+200+150 or if you don't want the chroma you can get the cheaper digitized at 200 so that is 200+200+150 marks. Buy the hairstyle from the broker? nope can't use that loophole
    If players want to hold onto the desperate notion that these extra rewards bring back all the players that left because of "content" not rewards then I don't know what to tell you. That is your prerogative to believe. These are simply just "extras"
