I think the biggest problem , as a ftp perspective , with fortify contests is they keep decreasing the point system everytime even though we don’t get more free gems with logins , daily videos etc and the slight increase in stamania we get with cap raises is not proportional high enough, but decreasing the points every time for these too almost makes it seem to a point of stamania is pointless for the contest.
Then again, I think that’s the point, because as a lot call this type of contest “fortify their wallets”, and as such why a lot hate it.
Maybe as a possible solution for both parties, @Loutre , maybe these fortify the networks can be guild contests or server contests only going foward, as a lot struggle with this type of contest. As the hints say on loading screen, a lot of people, especially ftp players, rely on the progress rewards to make a dent in overall game progress with the rushed (I know perblue doesn’t think they are rushed, but most of us do as long as the badge costs aren’t going down anytime soon as it seems) cap increases keep happening monthly.
I know honestly as a ftp I would like to at least be able to upgrade 15 toons fully with each update period but never do bc of the costs, as a result it’s usually 3-5 tops with each one.
