I'm not one to complain (quiet Val), but Matthew's gear? Level 30 gear in a game where an un-rebirthed hero max level is 99? Ida's gear, ok. Mieliam's would be better. But Matthew's? I don't get it but, alright.
Yes, yes, I know. "If you are unhappy with the events, you don't have to participate." True. But is the goal of most of these events to tick off your players or leave them wondering what the front door is going on? If so, kudos, you've achieved that in spades. Imagine if you were told to do some extra stuff at work and your reward was free week-old coffee. Would you be stoked? I'm sure in the Event Ideas post there isn't one person saying, "please give us gear that will be about useless in 3 to 5 days." Come on guys, use the event idea posts, take care of your players, ok?
Now that my non-complaint is out, if at some point you guys decided it would be cool to give us a way to UPGRADE armor sets, Matthew's to Ida's, Ida's to Mieliam's, etc, then things would be different, hint hint, wink wink.
And Dredd, we love ya. Nothing against you.
