Now, I am aware that I have suggested this before, but I’d say that Heroes Academy could be a place from where to access Daily Challenges, Space Race and Weekly Challenges, and other special “handicap” challenges that give you a certain amount of keys on completion.
Now, for reasons unknown, people reeaally don’t want to move challenges to a certain place. Which is just a lazy reason to hold on to their work from home lifestyles.
But, if it’s still there to stay, I’d suggest not awarding any of the keys collected in game, because people make more keys from just playing the mission than the whole leaderboard put together.
Increasing the rewards and not spawning keys in-mission provides an actual incentive to win other than just seeing your name on the leaderboard.
Now: Challenge Missions.
Sample Mission for comparision:
1x6,Difficulty level 23-45%
Chicken Square Dancing(CI3)
The Chicken Wobble
King of Crabs
BX-9 Mjolnir, Ion Blaster-FP7, 1 Dimensional Phase-Out, 5 Mine Bombs, Virtuoso,
*Accessible from Heroes Academy(only).
*Doesn’t spawn keys.
*Award keys based on score.
*More rewarding missions are tier-restricted.
*Often have handicaps as part of the mission.
*Usually makes you somehow utilize all resources given to you. For example, you might get an extra hard wave of Pulsating Grid that Ion Blaster is next to useless against, and proper timing of the special weapons given can help you clear the wave.
*Medals award keys based on difficulty.
Wave based-1 key each(you actually get a lot of them)
Mission based-7-12 keys each.
*Can only be attempted once.
Now the next part of the Heroes Academy functionality: Mission Assignments.(Not to be confused with squadron assignments.)
Going to the Heroes Academy, you will get assigned some missions(some 6-12)in your constellation to clear, a mix of hard and easy, and many game modes. On completion, you will be awarded some 50+ keys based on how difficult it is. There is no cap on the key reward given, and will usually be slightly more than the keys obtained while playing those missions.
And that’s about it.
What do you think?
- Is good.
- Is bad(list below).
- Don’t care.
- Conflicted opinion.
Just closed the poll because the top result is simply legendary.
Opened for reassessment by the community.
Edit 2: fixed atrocious comma placement and some spelling.
