I think it’s fair to say that dedicated drops have been an issue since September. We have begged and pleaded for fixes, and now we get a proper improvement in a week long event.
Many players wished for the Bloody Harvest event to stay. Revenge of the Cartels was even more popular and had an even bigger request to be made permanent. These were much more immersive than the Bonus Boss loot event that included maps and in-game interactions even intertwined with holidays(in some cases). I understand the decision to keep these bigger events limited.
But the Bonus Boss Loot week long event is not that complex. It simply gives us the dedicated drop rates that we have been wanting desperately. While there are issues with RNG and polluted loot pools that this won’t fix, it is a running head start.
This isn’t even a new idea, in case you missed it before there is a LOT of great discussion that is still 100% relevant now in this thread. There have been dozens of great ideas thrown about on this site for an improvement.
We made a realistic request when we asked to make the Cartel annointments permanent. I feel like making this event permanent isn’t out of reach and would be a massive improvement to BL3.
