- I would prefer to get 15 gold every 3 wins.
- I would prefer to get 10 gold every 2 wins.
Coming from Hearthstone, I really liked that Duelyst gave me a little gold every other win. After a win, I was either getting a 10g bonus, or I was one win away from a 10g bonus - it kept me going a lot because the gold trickles in so fast. It wasn’t about the amount of gold - 15, but the frequency, that kept me playing.
Thus, I suggest that if win gold needs to be toned down, make it 10g every 2 wins so that satisfying feeling is still there. It’s the same rate of gold: 5g/win, but gold every 3 wins feels like you are so far away from a reward after you complete the “quest”. I hope the rest of the community agrees, and this slight change can be made to the satisfaction of all.
On a side note, I’ll add that I am not happy about the quest restructuring. 8 games is a lot of time, and between working full-time, taking care of my family, and being a full-time student, I only have so much time to play matches in the evening. It was simple and satisfying to get my ~4 matches in every night to complete quests, and it didn’t strongly interfere with the rest of my life. Effectively doubling that time spent for max rewards is a frustrating and unwelcome change.
I consider myself a “hardcore” player, to be clear. I hit S-Rank every month (just hit it tonight with backstabhai again), I am very active in the community, and I have spent a healthy amount of money on this game. This change does not benefit me. It frustrates me.
