Light here to talk about the new Mayhem game mode, “Knight Mayhem”.
For the old ones this is the 4th iteration of it with a leaderboard.
However, this time, they changed not only the thematic but also the way points were calculated.
Previously, regardless of win/lose of the party, you were rewarded in points accordingly to your efforts. This time is different: Does not matter how impressive you played if your team loses you earn jack shit.
For solo players, this is simply killing it.
I’ve been a great fan of the Mayhem event every time it happened (and reached the top 5 the last 3 times) but this time? It’s close to impossible by myself as I end up not being rewarded by my own skills but depending on the overall team i end up with: team i get assigned quite randomly
=> So, yeah, change the fuckin points system back since no one ever asked you to change it like that.
That aside, a change of thematic gives some fresh air to the game mode so i’m not against it.
It’s a big unbalanced in my point of view as the inability to go backward effectively for the fire launcher and canons make them far harder to play than the others. The corvo is especially strong at the moment…
Getting crates every day is a good incentive to play the game mode so that’s nice. Its rewards on the other end are a joke.
The rewards you get from ranking up are not as good as they once used to be but the final crate is a practical one so, on that one, I really have nothing to complain about.
Would have enjoyed a little more decors since it’s a new thematic though.
Quite interesting to see that there is absolutely nothing related to the garage range this time. You guys figured out those things were useless finally?
Anyways, I hope the game mode can be improved when it comes to the point system. Having to win the entire game to get something and not go into negative just destroys the whole point to me (and solo players in general in my humble opinion)
