I’m sitting with about 130 boxes ranging from Commendation to Generals Chests and I have no desire to open them. All they’ll do is accumulate parts and dust that frankly I haven’t needed for a good few months since everything is maxed on all characters. Sure there’s red weapons to collect but obviously they only drop from Emperors’ Chests and above.
Can you implement something along the lines of the first game where combining 5 blues gave an orange, but for the boxes? There’s coffers from Veteran Deeds in my inventory and they are totally obsolete. At least combining them up to Emperor level would give me a better chance at, say, a unique skin rather than filling my inventory with parts I don’t need. This would also mean that Deeds that aren’t Legendary would be worth doing for another reason other than the pretty portraits.
On the subject of Commendation Chests, I understand that these cannot be used in this proposed combining system; it is unfair for someone to farm experience on Recruit and end up with Emperors’ Vaults, for example. However combining them into, say, a cosmetic box where I’m guaranteed to get cosmetics for the chosen character would be pretty dope. I mean something like 25 chests for 3 guaranteed hats would be more than enough for me since I’ve NEVER gotten a cosmetic drop so far, after almost 550 hours across both your games. Not mad about that at all…
If you could improve the quality of the chest within its particular level (e.g. combining coffers will only yield Emperors Coffers at max) this would allow people that only play Champion to get better shots at the good stuff and/or give an incentive for people like me who play it to get quick completions for the headgear. I understand that playing Champion and getting Emperors’ Chests from Okri would basically eliminate the need for Legendary if this was implemented with the ability to fully upgrade boxes to Legendary Vaults, so that isn’t what I’m asking.
If you do try to implement this please don’t wreck the code in the process or pull an Okri and reset everyone to 0 progress. I don’t want to log in and find you’ve done what I’ve asked but all my boxes are gone. Other than that cheers for reading and here’s to the first DLC coming soon.
