    you have to run some maps 100 times, to get prowess keys to farm khalys cloak or ingredients for gems crafting and after 200 keys spent you realize you dont even have 50% of ingredients for 1 gem yet, or you spent 500 or more keys without seeing any cloak

    you have to farm items for hours or days and sell them to get gold for crafting (instead of increasing gold drop or reducing crafting cost they make you sell thousands of trash items), and you spend 3000 or 4000 gold trying to make 1 legendary from extras, but you get nothing again

    no rewards, no motivation, i have been doing this and i feel like i dont want to do it anymore

    That was I talking about.
    At first the drops were raining like crazy ... making it paradise for gangbangers ... since they got everything in few days or a week.
    Then they reduced the drop so bad with the next release ... punishing the legit players and make them suffer.

    This isn't exactly a new problem.

    The mind numbing grind for pitiful rewards has been around for a while now. The horrible rng at the crafting table isn't new either.

    The only new thing seems to be trying harder and harder to remove any fun whatsoever out of the few remaining events.

    It has to be hard to think up new ways to drive players away from the game.

    You still believe that? I don't :)
    There is no RNG ... it is a staged event

    I logged in the other the day to see what changes have happened and found nothing that makes me want to play.

    I tried a new character and leveled it up to 20 to see how that was, and it was worse.

    Beyond the "training" session, HP potions never drop (I got zero in a couple hours). They have made it much harder to get wisdom. Used to be able to hit that first mini boss in Crypt and load up there, but that doesn't work any longer so you are forced to run Heredur to get wisdom early on.

    I ended up getting a total of 5 minor gems in a few hours which doesn't help. Getting enough coins to use the travel stones forces you to sell everything vs melting some stuff. The cost of mounts removes any hope for new players. I did get a chicken pet from one of the shabby chests which was nice, but not exactly exciting.

    I tried to get a pvp match, but finally gave up on that idea after waiting 1 hour.

    So I pulled my DK out of retirement to see what was happening at end game. I did get 1 pvp match after 30 minutes or so and that was a sad joke.

    If they are going to a MOBA, do it like the big popular games, this weird thing that they came up with is just ridiculous.

    I tried two crafts and found it to be exactly as bad as it has been, so there is zero point in wasting the time/effort/gold in doing that.

    There are no more mounts/pets or emotes for me to buy with gold, so I do not have any real reason to sell things for gold.

    My gear is level 60, so there is no reason to melt anything either.

    If I were going to play, I would still need thousands upon thousands of draken cores and quite honestly that doesn't inspire me given the lack of real events these days.

    There isn't any new gear that makes me want to sign on to get and even if there were new gear, it wouldn't drop so I would have to grind forever and two days to get materi frags to buy it.

    For a game that used to be really fun and had super potential it is a shame to see what it has been reduced to.

    Tegan would have double in size to be ghost town these days.

    Indeed, the fun of the game is, in my opinions, the rewards, the loot you get out of farming,especially for a pve player like me

    they took the joy of results, of achievement out of the game
    In the end you don't get enjoyment when you obtain a long desired item, given how much you struggled against the RNG and how much stress it is to play the game

    Which begs the question: do they care about legit players or do they only care about the gangbangers, who are probably the ones who spend like crazy for the game?

    Because they are doing everything they can to kick out honest players and give favours to gangbangers, exploiters, cheaters

    Could you please explain what you mean by "staged event"?
    Are you saying all my failed crafts are because I'm not _allowed_ to get 1-4 platinum lines out of 4 gold+ lines of "% inc dam on this item"?
