EDIT: Just to get things straight for whoever’s reading this. I’m not saying that players who quit should be penalised or anything - quite the opposite. I’ve beaten many opponents but I’ve also been beaten many times. It took me a lot of effort to get in the top ranks in this game and I know how annoying it is when you keep coming up against that OP mech you clearly can’t beat. I also understand that there’s plenty of other issues with the update that probably rank higher on the list of grievances. I’m just saying that this is one of those issues that in my opinion, should be addressed.
It’s bad enough that everything’s more expensive now and that campaign and pvp rewards are crap. I get that this is some misguided attempt at rewarding players for actually fighting, but it’s backfiring big time.
I’ve spent actual time and money on getting my new mech where it is only to be penalized because 9 times out of 10 my opponent quits on me first round. Really guys (THE DEVS, NOT YOU THE PLAYER WHO IS READING THIS)? You’d deny someone a 1700 gold reward?
