2 players in my usual premade group have decided that the game doesn’t provide entertainment for them any more and have stopped playing. Sadly I have to agree. They are not willing to play just to grind layer upon layer of RNG. I’ve pulled together about 10 or so reds, many many duplicates and some with no illusion, and have had enough since the drop rate seems stealth nerfed in the .6 patch.
Our group doesn’t just play for loot either, we play for the challenge. Unfortunately, that’s not an option with specials that engage you out of line of sight, double or triple spawning specials, silent patrols, spawns that appear on top of your head etc. That’s not a repeatable or learnable experience, instead that’s the game saying “now it’s time for you to die”.
So, anyone else just not playing and hoping they fix the end game and broken AI? If they think that a few hats and skins are gonna bring people back they’re mistaken. A significant balance patch needs to come alongside any DLC.
