If I have through watever means managed to collect 30 containers as a so-called “reward” I don’t want to experience torture of clicking on each container to open, clicking each node to open the four nodes that appear in random spots, and clicking on continue; all the time while between each click I have to wait for an animation to conclude.
The “reward” must be a “rewarding” experience, not tedious carpal punishment. Please allow to skip the animation and do a quick open of these containers!
I agree the loot crates are a pain but they have little value and, if not redeemed will disappear on their own. The current crates don’t need to be opened - you can put them on the market as is. Best to do it soon since the boosters expire on December 8!
Thanks for your reply but I disagree with 2 of your 3 points:
1: Actually the contents of some of these crates can be as much as a hundred million, for example the Praxis ship and SKIN crate from last year.
2: The crates also do not disappear on their own, I have some from 5 years ago.
CCP is inconsistent with these crates as some can be traded on the market but others can’t, some can be traded on contract and others can’t. Maybe the current ones can be traded but there is a larger problem.
They probably do it that way for psychological reasons. They make them look like presents, and then draw out the act of opening them. I wouldn’t be surprise if such design decisions had been focused grouped (if not by CCP, then other game devs), and found to result in a more satisfying experience.
Oh, and, “I’m getting too much free stuff; make it easier for me to open them all,” is probably not something that will garner a lot of sympathy from the community.
I expect that “the community” and CCP appreciate me supporting this horrible 17 year old game with my many alts. You seem to think the community believes I deserve to be punished for supporting the game. I can only hope CCP is more reasonable and appreciates my business.
Let’s first define that this is stupid. The animation shows that each player gets some kind of special, maybe not the same container. While he is exactly the same as everyone else. Everyone is given the same gifts. Then why is it opening containers. Then, I seriously believe that most of this garbage is unnecessary. Including crumbs of skill points. I’d better get into the game faster. This rubbish humiliates players every day. Praxis is given once a year, and to be honest, not everyone needs it. And the money that can be bailed out for it is not very big. And these skins are basically never needed. And blueprints that are not needed if there is even a drop of brains, the most severe humiliation of players. So you should just throw these handouts away and never open the handout window.
Now imagine having to go through every container in your station hangar, at least a few times per session, on every toon, because for some reason a nasty showed up on your inventory all of a sudden and NOT receive any free skill points, or skins, or boosters. Now THAT is a punishing clickfest without “rewards”.
