It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on this Reddit. I was quite active all the time before my old Reddit account was hit with a cyber attack. Hopefully this post stays up because in the past, about ~20% of my posts were removed by the mod (ego?/poorly programmed bot?)
For context, I am an end game commander (PL 136.52). With more than 500 days logged in over the course of three years and 200+ all legendary perk schematics, I have truly seen it all. I know this game inside out and frankly I don’t think too many people play the game with the same mindset as me.
For the past month, I’ve come to the realization that I am forcing myself to play STW almost like it’s a job. Don’t get me wrong, I love ventures and it’s grind primarily because the game feels fresh. In particular, this venture season presents the opportunity to use heroes that are typically not viable in the main game such as Diecast and Airheart (Heroes with strong abilities that are hindered by their cooldowns).
One thing I’ve noted is that I hate grinding 160s for superchargers, but my brain keeps forcing me to do them because of FOMO. Over the past few weeks I’ve broken this curse by missing two straight superchargers. It’s a step in the right direction for sure.
The only thing I really do when I play STW is MSK. I hate saying this but I’ve become one of those end game players that only does MSK and carries. I know I am ruining this game for the players I am carrying but honestly I can’t help it. Doing MSK duo has become extremely easy for me to the point that I now do solo MSK carries. I’m always in Discord servers helping people out for free. I still find it mind boggling that some people charge 3000+ sunbeam for a MSK carry but that’s a topic for a different day.
To simply put it, there is nothing left for me to do in this game. I could grind for the banners, but why should I put myself through the pain to grind for those accolades? For anyone who has the survivor banner, I have a lot of respect for you and if you were ever in my game I always showed my respect.
The only thing I am looking forward to is Tuesday’s Homebase Status Report. I have a strong feeling it will be an impactful one.
I can read this game like a book, and I’m confident we will see the following things mentioned in the report:
*Birthday llamas (Obtainable through a new questline or they might take the lazy route and use the beyond stellar questline as a way of obtaining these llamas).
I’ve played with most weapons in the game and look forward to obtaining the weapons I am missing during the birthday event. The birthday reskinned hero will most likely be Kyle.
*Hero rework (I expect about 5 (max 10) heroes to be changed in the first batch. Most likely these heroes still won’t be used by many).
*Fossil Southie obtainable by completing Well-travelled quest
*Deciblaster obtainable by completing Crackshot pt.2
*Paleo Luna and Arch -Jess will be obtainable from the item shop
Honestly, I’m just sad. This could’ve been an excellent game. I’ve seen so many great ideas on this Reddit page over the past few years. I just wish they came to fruition. Maybe modding might be able to make that possible but highly unlikely as that will be a BR feature only.
This may be my final post on this Reddit page.
With that said, I’d like to thank the mods for allowing 80% of my posts.
I’d like to say thank you to everyone who gets the chance to see this post and has seen my posts in the past. Also, I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed meaningful content to this Reddit page. It has been a pleasure scrolling through this Reddit page every morning over the past year.
A special thanks to u/XylicSTW for his amazing leaks. I really enjoyed reading your tweets every morning on my commute to work.
Lastly, I’d like to thank
I appreciate your dedication toward this game and all the hard work you put into your guides.
I’ll end off on this,
I’m not sad that’s it’s over, I’m happy that it happened.
