Why more stealing positions? The steal positions will be the same as now, it will just take less time to contribute the fps.But let's look at a game design/balance perspective - this will mean more 'stealing' positions, and less gradual contribution. Why should I contribute 10 FPs a day to a GB, when I can never secure a position because at any time you can sweep in with a single click and drop 3K FPs? Since your donations are now just a single click, you'll be taking higher spots in more GBs and I will be taking less. The divide between you and me will keep growing over time (which would be fine if it was parallel with the amount of effort we put in, but this is not the case here). You're benefiting from the change, I'm harmed by it, so it doesn't affect everyone the same way.
Even now i can steal your spot if I wanted, unless you're watching the GB at the very same time. If you're not watching, why would you care if I needed 1 or 10 minutes to donate the fps?
Lots of people are doing this already, so I really don't think it'd change that much. Sorry, but Inno should have thought of this before releasing the Arc. They gave us a game breaking GB, and what they thought we wouldn't exploit it best we can? Not our fault here.People would also be spending more time to partake in GB contributions and hoard FP packages for easier stealing of positions (& thus gaining even more FP packages to steal even more positions) and less time on anything else in the game. Meaning not only will use of other features drop down, but it will shift the whole focus of the game in a different direction.
With all due respect, are we talking only about time here?
If you can find 100 GBs a day from which you can profit, then you've already wasted a lot of time searching for those GBs.. Note, that even if you don't bother to spend a few mins for "only" 10% profit, someone else would. So in the end, that spot will be taken regardless, someone will get the reward, it won't get lost. With the new proposal, the profit will be scored by whoever spots the GB first. Why is that so bad?Then:
while the mentioned 10 minutes, i could be able to donate to 100GBs
i don't have to skip those, which give less than 10% profit, because it takes no time to take those places too
profit could reach thousands of FPs daily in much shorter time
Again, are we talking only about time here? if it was so easy to get your GBs to lvl 60, people would have done it by now even if they needed to spend a whole day! Your statement is wrong, time is not the issue here. Issue is finding that "super team" of 90% Arcs willing to contribute to your GB at the same time.most GBs could be levelled almost for free between the 25th and 60th lvls (some would give FPs on each lvl too what helps a lot)
with the easy profit, no problem to spend to your own GBs
reaching the 60th lvl in the 6 most important GBs in 20minutes will solve all your problems forever in the game
A guildie power pushed their Atlantis from lvl 1 to 10 a few weeks ago. Took us about 15 mins to do it. Why do you care so much if we could have done it in 5? We would have done it either way!
Plus, like others mentioned, if you donate all FPs at once, you're missing out on the rewards from cycling quests. So it does come with a cost.
If this gets released, I actually think most people would donate FPs in chunks of 139 fps (for OF cycling quests), so for 2000 fps we'd need about 15 clicks. So it won't be in 1 if that speed donating bothers you so much.
