I’m not sure I see your point. The portal was for this item. It was stated that the portal provided a higher drop rate, leaving a reasonable person to think that with enough work, they would get the item.
Myself and many others spent an unreasonable amount of time grinding. People had differing rates of success at getting legendary items. Many of us shared the same rate of zero success at getting the claw. It wasn’t like we grinded 2 or 3 tanks of fuel and ran off crying.
My point, seemingly shared by many others, is that if you (Tactisoft) are going to say that things will be a certain way, then they should be that way. If they are not, there is a problem. Perhaps they lie. Perhaps they manipulate things in their favor. Perhaps the game has bugs that either they don’t know how to fix or they don’t care about or that they put there on purpose.
When I first joined the forum and read posts from @Wepwawet, @El_Metre, @bestplayerintheworld and countless others, seeing them talk about weird problems with the game, I thought they were just unlucky and angry. Always after they pointed something out, another player would come along and give excuse as to why things were okay and there was no problem, no strange thing occurring. The topic would then fade away.
I’ve tried to be calm, but I continue to see and experience weird things. The absolute silence from Tactisoft inspires NO trust. Now in this instance, Tactisoft was not silent. They made a portal for a specific item and celebrated that there would be higher drop rates. Bullshit. Plain and simple.
For those of you who have been pointing out these issues all along, I apologize for not believing you. For those of you who wish to continue running to the defense of Tactisoft, shame on you.
