Absolutey NO SUPRISE here, whatsoever: An ALL COMP patch, again! No Co-op changes, fixes, or additions. No real fix to the rare treasure issues in Arena or Adventure. We still have combined modes.
While COMP fans have something to play for now (people have been leaving this game in droves over the last 2 months), Co-op fans are left in the cold again.
For Co-op fans, UC3's run was over in less than one year from retail release. Pathetic!
Your sig says it all, SLEAZE_IT_UP...
"FINALLY FOUND MY LAST CO-OP TREASURE TO CLOSE OUT ALL SETS. IT ONLY TOOK 1 YEAR OF COMPLETE FRUSTRATION TO FIND 1 TREASURE AND ABOUT 5,000 DUPLICATES. DOES THAT SEEM RIGHT TO YOU?"
No, it doesn't seem right. Thousands of duplicates because the ridiculous treasure drop system makes zero sense.
I would love to hear Naughty Dog comment on what their reasoning is for having the treasure drops the way they are, especially considering there's a trophy associated with finishing the sets. What is the point of making people grind through thousands and thousands of NPC kills (or boost them in Hunter) only to get the same treasures every time? To make people hate their game?
I used to somewhat understand the "rareness" of the drops since it allowed people to have unique, hard-to-get customization items for their MP characters. You would see someone wearing Drake's top hat in a deathmatch and you'd think "Oh cool, he must've had to work hard for that in Co-Op". Now you can buy all of those customization items, so they're no longer badges of honor.
From ND's perspective, the only possible reason I can think of to keep the drop system the way it is would be to make people more likely to buy the customization items since grinding for them in Co-Op is such a chore. My argument against that is that most of new items that don't count towards the trophy sets are better (they look better and you get the hat stats as a bonus). The only people still griding away to complete the Co-Op treasure sets are the ones looking for 100% complete trophy lists... They don't care about the customization items anymore.
So, long story short... the drop system is total BS and needs to be addressed. I know some people don't care about trophies, but for those of us that do, trophies should be based on skill, not complete random luck.
They could at least fix the treasures in co-op...
Either that or delete the treasure trophies.
I know one girl (Hi Nana!) who grinding co-op from almost 1 Year and she still don't have that 1 last treasure.
Oh... and ND even added trophie for get all co-op treasures?
I would call this Higher Level Of Trolling Players :3
I tried since the patch around 10 games on 'crushed and hard' in adventure, but not even a single time a treasure of hard/crushed dropped. Only the ones frome easy/normal. So the patch sucks, sorry to say.
Anyone ever get the right treasures on co op adventure since the patch?
Replace Hunter Arena with Super Survival, with playable villain skins and a reliable drop rate.
That is our final request, ND.
