Datacrons (DCs) are extremely unpopular by the wast majority of players. The reasons for this can be found in most threads made since their launch
. But, they are likely here to stay. Let's see if we can find some adjustments that would make them at least somewhat enjoyable.
A few idea of my own (not all original, I know):
- GLs should not be affected by your DCs, or perhaps only by either stats or lvl 3/6/9 abilities
- Make them usable in PvE. This would greatly increase their popularity
- Inclusion in PvE would also make tier 2 abilities more useful (= less of a bummer) and make design space for more varied og fun (important word: FUN) abilities
- Using them in GAC (and perhaps TW) should cost banners. For instance 1(or 2) less banner when placing a DC on defense and 1 (or 2) less when using one on attack. They are just like 6th squad member, why not include them in scoring? With the right cost, this would make a HUGE strategic difference for competitive players.
What are your ideas? (constructive, pls)
