Ever since space holders were able to access the game for free on Thursday 10/13 the NFT drop rates have been extremely low. Many players stated that it takes 8-10+ hours of grinding just to see 1 NFT trigger for a random player from a party. I can attest to this as well and it’s a far cry from my rate prior to all of this which was at least seeing 1 NFT or more per hour on average. Almost every player in the game I’ve come across and guild members have reported that the drop rates are extremely abysmal.
Now I don’t really believe that a bunch of low levels 1-15 were farming faster or equally as efficiently than the higher levels thus making the drop rate lower because that doesn’t make any logical sense at all. Which makes me to believe that the drop rate has been purposely lowered.
I don’t think this is necessarily a bad thing because previous AMAs stated that getting an NFT(even uncommon) should be extremely difficult and eventually grinding for tokens and crafting the NFTs will be a much more major focus. Besides it makes all the NFTs that we’ve farmed previously more valuable now due to scarcity and too much inflation is bad for the economy.
However this also creates some obvious issues. The game simply doesn’t have enough content or any reward incentives outside of NFTs prior to all of this to keep us engaged for long hours. Any group of high level 40+ players can just power level any newbie and show them every dungeon and content in the game with a few hours or a single day and that’s it. There’s no reason to play other than engaging in the minimal content that we have right now
So I really want is some sort of acknowledgment from BT team that yes, the NFT drop rate has been lowered and that they will give us some sort of hint, plan, or update to address this issue in a few days because if this continues barely anyone will continue playing this game. Whether its releasing NFTs or not there needs to be more incentive for us to continue playing because right now it’s looking lackluster and I really want this project to succeed.
