While the debate around the limited, then reinstated Draconics was being had, I wasn’t able to participate because I had been banned for being a very naughty boy.
I would, however, like to put forward a case as to why I don’t think the Draconics should be removed from the festive line, or changed next season, even if it may fall on deaf ears.
The Draconic chests, in my opinion, are the best new introduction to the game that I have seen.
The reason for this is that they provide the resources I need to play the game with enjoyment.
I have two small children (currently home schooling ) so the time I’m able to be in game is limited. The resources from the draconic chests allowed me to progress/score/grow in a manner that made the game more fun.
I don’t buy packs, I do buy regular and atlas elite. The removal of the ability to gain these Draconics will not make me spend money, I will simply use the resources I have to get gold chests at the beginning of the season, instead of Draconics at the end of the previous. I will gain more sigils with gold chests but my gameplay experience will be poorer.
For me, Draconics were an amazing quality of life improvement and whilst I’m happy that they were reinstated this season, I’m very disappointed that the ability to gain them is likely to be reduced next season.
I understand that the concern is that people may get a headstart on the following season, but I don’t believe that is an accurate assumption.
I’d also suggest that, if this is the primary concern, why not simply remove sigils from the Draconic chests moving forward?
That way, people can make a decision between resource heavy chests with no sigils, or simply choose to spend their sigils on other seasonal lines and retain their rubies to spend on golds the following season during discounts for the sigils.
I don’t know if I’m alone in feeling this way but wanted to put this out there to get others’ views.
