Give seasons 300% XP/drops instead of new items(1)Category: GeneralMarch-25-2015 6:10 PM PDT (7 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
I'm serious.

I strongly dislike the concept of seasonal exclusive items, and have argued against them for about the last year or so. One of the more common attempted rebuttals I see from season exclusive fans is that seasons need an "incentive", as starting over at the start of a season is "inconvenient" and puts you a a disadvantage compared to those who just keep on truckin' in non-season with their geared characters.

Whether or not it's valid to opt in to an optional mode and then complain that you need "incentives" and "rewards" is a topic for another thread (a few thousand of them, in fact). What I humbly offer here is a suggestion for a alternative incentive - a big XP and/or drop bonus for playing in seasons. Getting triple XP will minimise the "inconvenience" faced when rerolling a new character, and over the course of a season should put you well in the black compared to if you had just stuck to your non-seasonal characters.

As well, speaking from my own perspective as a non-seasonal player for life, it would leave players like me feeling less gimped - at least we would be playing the real game.

Players in some other mode getting tons of XP and drops - doesn't affect me. At least I'm playing the full game.

Being stuck in last season's mode with a gimped loot table - makes me not want to play at all.

Thoughts?

If you want to be the first ones to gain access to new loot then make the sacrifice and feel weak through the process up levelling up again.

If this is not your thing then, bite the bullet and wait.

Personally, I think there's nothing wrong with the system. Blizzard already compromised from the get-go by allowing the season's exclusives into the NS loot pool when it was over.

I'm seeing lots of different perspectives here on what players would like to see from Seasonal rewards. All of this complements feedback we’ve noticed in similar threads, which we’ll be sure to pass on to our developers.

Just as a quick reminder, though: Please remember to be civil to one another. Be passionate, even argumentative, but always focus your conversation on weighing the merits of the ideas themselves, rather than the merits of your fellow posters. :)

That said, carry on, my fellow nephalem!
