So I have been crusading these forums over the past few days talking about how to make the battle pass progression better. Only to realize it’s actually pretty good, minus a few sources of frustration.
Imagine my surprise when I was near completing all the weekly challenges and finished it off with one of the one hour 2x XP boosts and realizing it doubles ALL xp gains for the duration, not just the 50xp, boosting me up 4, almost 5 levels in an hour without me spending any more money than just the cost of the battle pass. I’m currently at level 16 and this is only week 2, not to mention the Fractures: Tenrai event just handing out XP chunks for completing its challenges.
So yes, my opinion has changed due to patience and fresh knowledge. I could probably clear another 7 levels in an hour or two if I save an xp boost for when I have a bunch of easy challenges lined up.
BUT. AGAIN. I strongly recommend to 343 that you add a consistent xp reward for winning, instead of just playing. It is incredibly tempting to just leave matches where I can’t complete challenges if that is my motivation for the day, and yes, sometimes I play to have fun and other times I play to achieve goals. And it’s a slippery slope, if I run out of challenges one week and just have the measly 50xp each match, I may put the game down until next week and then BOOM it’s been a month since I’ve played… think about it.
