Let's also take a look at what Tef said.
"The crew member will now gain 1-20 skill points depending on artefact strength."
This means the higher level you are the more points you will get.
Well, A) No, its based on the level of the arts and B) Its slower
We have 200+ artifacts we all keep. To max an artifact using flux it costs roughly 1.5K - 2.5K flux. One artifact! Arifacts we may never use again with future changes.
The system put in place today pretty much scales with your level and allows users to upgrade their artifacts and gain points where as before they could not upgrade until they had a maxed crew.
@Supreme. What level art is that? I thinking it's way over level 50. Which just proves you aren't seeing what anyone is saying on this forum. This update is great for well established players. IF you aren't established or new... it's baaaad.
ps: just amazing how thesupreme literally ignores key parts in some posts and still talks about the same 100+ level player stuff...
This is all about TPTB having no idea what life is like for the 99%...D&D have completely forgotten what its like to actually play the game. They are either such vets that the system was vastly different from when they started; or their gameplay experience (flux driven) is so unlike everyone else's.
What's mind boggling about this update is the way they went about handling this. A quick search through the suggestions for words like "crew" and "training" shows a hefty handful of ideas ranging from decent to effing brilliant. Yet the devs chose this weird and not very well thought out idea to implement.
This is what really gets me about this game...we put out suggestions about changes, and when the devs come in to change something instead of using a knife they use a nuke. This is like the fed alts artifact change...the only place where it was causing problems was in Dom/DM...instead they screw with EVERYONE's gameplay. Some insight into the decision making process would be nice.
