Changing the contests to an XP grind would still be as unfair

I assume that this is a large problem at the very highest-tier rewards of contests, but I’ve personally never had this problem at all. I think it only really affects the ‘hardcore’ players, and those who are serious about contests. The majority of players aren’t going to be experiencing this, and that’s why I think having XP as the way of getting rewards isn’t too great for most people. As you said, it punishes people who can’t play for a large amount of time everyday, which I would imagine to be most people. It would mean that someone could be at the top of the leaderboards just because they had more free time to grind whilst others could only play at the weekends.

In other words, I think changing the contests to an XP grind would still be as unfair, if not more, as the current contests can potentially be. I agree that there needs to be a higher cost for unsocketing gems though. The current 500 cubits per gemerator means that players with patron can still unsocket a fair amount of gems which gives them an advantage over non-patrons, who can only unsocket one or two high-level gems. I know patron players are meant to have advantages but they shouldn’t be unfair ones. The devs need to find a way of making gem unsocketing more expensive and more equal for patrons and non-patrons.

Isn’t that the meaning of “contest”? That you have to work hard to overcome others? Class contests at the first 2 ranks can hardly be called as contests, you put a few gems on and bam free loots every week for free. (I don’t mind it haha, but it requires 0 effort.) Also, if the top tiers of class contests were somehow be partially based on time invested, there could be more variety among the top 250 each week considering a few high-end players might not have the determination.

I don’t understand the first part of this, the power rank is not meant to be insignificant, which is why it still affects the contests, so players are still encouraged to get alot of it. players with less power rank won’t get as much of a benefit, but those players wouldn’t be able to get the dark vaults anyways, so it all turns out for the better.

They already have ‘most xp earnt’ and ‘most kill’ to me it sounds like you just want to ruin it for other players. Maybe your jealous I dunno…. atm I login to trove a few times a week…. most of my characters are already vll 30 and whenever I do play all I can do is grind. One of the things that keeps me coming back is my 10 empowered gems each week. If I had to suddenly start grinding for them too I would just stop playing and I imagine others would to. I’m on this idea is the worst I’ve heard for quite a while and comes across a bit salty and selfish.

This here is a good idea to fix that problem, so that players can still be rewarded for their efforts and not just RNG. However I still think that the class pr contest should be retained, as it would be unfair for some players as they might not have a lot of time to grind for xp, unlike some players who have all the time in the world to grind endlessly.

I like this idea, for the most part. There needs to be an XP side to this. While I also like the freebie emp boxes, there’s nothing to look forward to for the contest. I have every class unlocked, and all classes are at least lvl 20 with PRs all at 2500 or more, so there is no need to do anything with the classes I don’t consider my mains. From a financial standpoint, this idea might actually bring more money in for Trion by “forcing” players to use classes they don’t really play. They might find out they actually like the class, which in turn could turn into money spent in cash shop. That’s how it worked for me with some of the classes, anyway.

Also, there is nothing wrong with the challenge this idea could add. I don’t get to play as much as most, but I do make the most of the time I get to play. I’ll never be a “pro” in this game. I’ll probably never see end-game content in one expansion before the next comes out, but that’s just the way the dice roll. Grinding XP to win a contest isn’t that bad. I would rather have my XP be counted as part of the equation instead of just using PR.
