You can't open the chest if you have not the Seasons pass. so, for me a padlock is not necessary.
Just two months ago...Ok, just my two cents.
Cyclable quests were boring...
Season seemed a more dynamic and entertainment replacement.
It is not.
It is just an excuse to give lame rewards? and charge with an outrageous amount of diamonds for some mediocre buildings.
Most players have provided their feedback, if Inno believes the feature is ok, let them carry it to Live.
I suppose someone will count at the end of the month the revenue of the "Season Pass" and decisions wil be taken accordingly.
Some points that need improvement:
- No only-premium rewards milestones, give something to every player.
I agree that premium pass should have better rewards, but that should not mean no rewards for everyone else.
Make it additional.
- In other games , the premium pass provides premium currency so pushers can recover all or mostly all cost.
You can get a LOT for 2500 diamonds, is ALL that Season Pass offers worth it?
Easier way , put additional premium rewards every 2 milestones, gift small quantities of diamonds as sweeteners.
- No 100% doable quests inside chapter must be avoided. Period.
- A daily quest refresh (or two) should mitigate potential issues (Spire, Tournament, ...)
Code should take into account refreshed quest and avoid giving the same quest or same category...
- For small players, make the prizes relevant for them.
Remember how much tight gold and supplies are at the beggining (*).
One single 5h instant is not relevant, neither some troops.
Some multiple smaller instants and small windfalls are.
- For big players, make the prizes relevant for them.
One good point is the option of choosing among different rewards (time, wares,...) some time ago some Tome that provided orcs, mana, seeds was given if I remember correctly, that maybe one good way to go.
Make all milestones 2-3 options, with premium being 1 less por regular players.
- Building rewards. Make them better than regular buildings, if Devs are not excited about it , we will no be either...
Or give just Lava codex, Orcs Nests, Mana Sawmills, Festival Merchants... they are always good and are replaced every chapter.
- Make it funny, not a cumbersome chore.
(*) As Homework, try to start now a trial city, from beginning, to refresh the feeling of scarcity, 2-3 chapters are enough, but a good exercise of self-reflection. If it is HARD for veteran players that know the game , just imagine for new players... and if it is not interesting and entertaining they will not keep playing...
EDIT2: Yes, lucky coincidence, but appropiate pun nonetheless = beginning+begging
This happens some times to me also, its always when I finished both quests in total. But with next log in the quests will still be there.
Since last Sunday, the Season of Dreams quests are gone..
Is that intentional? Or is it a bug?
We will extend the Season of Dreams for 1 more week, this will allow us to do further testing of the feature and as result you can receive Blessings for another week.
The Season will be active until the 28th of February.
So far we have no start date for another Season... as soon as we do, this will be announced, so keep an eye on our announcements!What about new quests? When will they start? The timer statet start will be as soon as the timeline will be fullfilled? I read something about 20 min. or so. But nothing happened right now.
Will the seasons start tomorrow with beginning of spring? snow will be gone then and maybe it is time for the new season?
