In the game, there are three different types of packs that players can buy with in-game or real money. The author’s main argument is that there should be more shard packs and less weapon or legend packs so it does not favor those who either pay for microtransactions or have free time enough to grind for the more expensive packs. One type is a weapon pack which tends to give rarer guns, usually legendary level weapons and then legend packs which give epic and legendary characters such as Gibraltar and Pathfinder.
The game Apex Legends allows the player to buy different types of in-game packs which give them either weapons, legendary characters or just shards for in-game currency where it is stated that when you get an elite pack, it has one epic weapon and then when you get a apex pack, it only gives you 1/3rd the number of shards.
The author wants to say that there should be less weapon and legend packs and more only shard packs because it is unfair for people who either want to play their favorite characters but can’t get them because of the shards needed or those who are willing to pay for microtransactions.
How many heirloom shards per pack
The amount of shard packs should also increase so people spend less time grinding for their favorite characters rather than purchasing them with real money or saving up enough to buy an entire legend pack.
The amount of weapon packs should not decrease because that would make it more difficult for players to find the weapons they really want.
- Legend Packs
Neither should there be less legendary packs because many people play characters purely based off their looks and with no regard to their abilities, so they’re able to buy the character they want and can focus more on getting better at the game.
- Shard Packs
The number of shard packs should be increased because it would not require much grinding and people could just get what they need within a few days rather than spending hundreds of hours trying to get enough parts for a particular legendary character and then wasting hundreds of more hours trying to get them leveled up.
Why do you need so many shards?
There should be more shard packs because it does not require much grinding and you can get what you need within a few days rather than spending hundreds of hours trying to get enough parts for a particular legendary character and then wasting hundreds of more hours trying to get them leveled up.
It would not make sense if there were less weapon packs as people would have a harder time finding the weapon that they want because if their favorite weapon is epic level, someone else might already have it and because you can’t get any better weapons from shard packs.
When can I buy new packs for the game?
The game makes it very difficult for other players to get what they want because if their favorite weapon is epic level, someone else might already have it and because you can’t get any better weapons from shard packs.
If you want to purchase more shard packs instead of weapon and legend packs, it needs to be an option for you to choose once you have reached a certain level.
All the packs should become either all shard based or all character based because if there were only character packs, players would be able to buy their favorite characters and focus more on getting better at the game rather than spending so much time grinding for parts.
More shard packs and less weapon or legend packs should be added into the game because that would make it fairer for those who either pay microtransactions or have free time enough to grind for the more expensive packs.
