I'm actually progressing fairly well. I think I'm Level 5 in the Fiesta Event and Level 15 in the BP.
Yeah it seems like they're using actually attainable challenges now and I unlocked a lot of them last night. Think I'm 4 in the event and almost level 10 in the BP.

But for the record, I don't go out of my way to do the annoying challenges. Use the swaps, or don't and keep complaining

I think I'm too old. Was reading about the new Fiesta event. Too much progression stuff going on when I would rather just try and play some of the MP casually. I don't want to turn it into a full-time job. I jumped in once, but have been putting it off again because it's one of those games that seems to benefit those who are willing to spend every waking hour playing. Again, might just be grumpy old man talking here.

L's? What L's?

You mean like how you want to defend something that even the devs have recognised as a problem and are going to change. Lol.
I've never defended the battle pass lol go back to my earlier posts in this thread. I'm saying you're taking L's because you've uninstalled a game you really like because "wahhhhh I can't unlock my cosmetics faster and it makes me not like playing a game that I really enjoy and it's not fairrrrrrrrrrrrrr waaaaaaaahhhhhhh"

They do need to adjust the XP system, they do need to adjust the challenges (which is what I was saying, they seem to have improved challenges to ones that are actually doable in game playing objectives...there's still a ton of room for improvement), and they need to do it by 12/3 IMO.

Also I forgot who wrote it, but it's not a grind lol. A grind would be the reference to Destiny 2 which unlocks better guns and what not over time which ACTUALLY AFFECTS THE GAME. This is purely cosmetic and has no bearing on the in game mechanics lol.

Edit: I take that last point back. It is a grind, albeit a different one.

It's still beta technically, so maybe some of the issues will clear up. I think if they keep the challenge system but just make the challenges more organic within the flow of gameplay (kill 10 spartans, etc.) then that alone could help a great deal.

I couldn't give a crap about the terrible BP or character customisation for a character you almost never see. That doesn't make the system anyless terrible.

The issue is what they are doing. They claim 6 months for a progression fix, that is ridiculous. They released this event with an even worse system. They time gated the event to drag it out over an entire season. They delayed season 2.

These are all terrible moves.

Oh, and still no Slayer only mode which should be extremely easy to do but nope.

As great as the gameplay and gun play is it isn’t enough in this day and age in the online FPS market to compete for gamers time. I play multiple MP FPS yearly and as of right now their progression stinks, can’t search for the modes I want to play, not that many maps… hopefully this gets fixed soon after official launch.

There is a market for this kind of old school game and we saw that when Splitgate randomly took off but the carrot here is awful and its playlist setup is so strangely backwards compared to the MCC

I am holding out hope for some playlist updates by the time the game officially launches. They haven't said anything, but I'm sure those are coming, especially with the challenge system that forces you to play certain modes. I think those are pretty no-brainer additions.

Didn't that game die pretty quickly too.
