It is funny how Steel Castle / IW has become more fun than the events we've been getting lately?

    I mean raids are a chore but at least make the raid craftables and rewards something that people would be interested to use and get? Gumi: Nope.

    KM are so repetitive but at least make the rewards for exchange (... not just tickets) something worthy of grinding? Gumi: Nope.

    Story events! Actually for those who like story, this is the best you can get! But shouldn't they make the bonus stage more consistent in difficulty? Some weeks are tougher than trials. Other weeks are like Peanuts! Gumi: Nope, Sorry.

    So there you go. Steel Castle becomes the best event of the week BY FAR. At least the reward of getting a nice rare enhancement is quite satisfying.

    Lately I've been getting bans. Just got back from one. Hope this post is okay and I don't get banned again -.-

    The mods are nice enough to help you quit :D

    And I enjoy every event the same: not very much, because I do everything on Repeat. Grab the rewards and go. Raids are the worst tbh because they clutter my inventory with useless crap. Just waiting for actual trials.

    Don't break the rules or post GoT spoilers again, then.

    Also, meh, this isn't much more interesting than anything else to me. Story updates are more tedious but more interesting IMO.

    Is it funny how there's still this daily/weekly thread?

    BUT on the topic of Steel Castle, yeah, it's not necessarily funny, per se, but it's certainly a little odd. The events are flat boring, but that's how they are. Steel Castle, in my mind, is the slightest bit more immersive than the others.

    Steel Castle is one of the few events that has a worthwhile payoff. Gumi doesn't understand that if you are going to make grindy boring events, at least make the payoff worthwhile and couple it with regular engaging trials that put our resources to good use.

    The problem is that some want to treat this like an MMO, the game was never designed for it, and Gumi wants to drag things out more so those people will be willing to spend on refreshes. That leaves you with every event being a grind in the end. The game was never meant for the amount of time some want to put into it and Gumi is to lazy to try to make something interesting to do.

    If the world was built more like the old school FF games and you were able to freely enter after you got the rewards then people who just want to mess around with their units could just wonder around the "over world". That seems to be what some people are looking for. Sad thing is that the game would need a major overhaul and that isn't gong to happen.

    Steel Castle is not fun in itself, but I can see the appeal because it's another lottery mechanism like pulling a unit. You put a coin, pull the lever and wait for it, get disappointed and try again because you have the excitement of maybe getting something great from it!
    It's still a chore for me, a more exciting one but still not a fun one.
    Main and side stories are still what I prefer!
