I have struggled with wanting and not wanting to write this post since I know it’s likely going to fall on deaf ears, but as we are nearing the end of the anniversary celebration this issue has been frustrating me more and more.
Every day when I log in I see the anniversary campaign rewards. Due to being unable to log in at the beginning of the campaign, every day I am reminded of the fact that I will be missing the rewards for days 14-16 - arguably the most desired reward days. Instead of being excited about some of the rewards and looking forward to playing the game, I am instead filled with frustration and feel like just turning the game off. I imagine there are plenty of others that feel the same way.
I know the argument is there that I only have myself to blame for not being able to log in right away at the beginning of the celebration, but even still, the way the daily campaign is designed just sets people up for frustration and failure. Completely the opposite of what a celebration should be. Maybe if the total days that the campaign ran for was longer, or if the rewards were normalized across all of the days so that missing the last few wasn’t such a painful situation. Something to give those of us that don’t have the ability to log in every single day, but yet are still paying customers like everyone else, the feeling that we are appreciated just as much. That isn’t how I feel today.
I welcome other people’s opinions on the topic, even if I am flamed for posting this. Maybe something can actually be done and some good with come out of it, who knows.
