For those who played the Citadel....

Do you think they should have done the multiplayer packs similar to how the arena does its rewards in the Citadel DLC? Basically, the packs would be the same except instead of UR/R/UC/C weapons you would get Tokens of the same rarity that you could redeem for a choice of any of the corresponding gear. It would still be just as hard to max out your arsenal, but at least you could focus on the ones you really want first.

Thoughts?

Obviously that's what we all wanted. But then BW wouldn't make money from microtransactions.

It would severely cut down on MP replayability. Part of what keeps people coming back is they have to keep earning credits to buy those packs.

Also, microtransactions. Being able to purchase select items would kill that feature as well.

Why would it cut that down? You would still have the same amount of chance to earn the UR token ect. you would just get to pick the rewards in order instead. How would that cut down the amount needed to earn it all???

Because (if I understand your idea) it would mean players can select what UR they want. So instead of having to sift through ALL the UR's (which have a low chance of appearing already), they now get a token that lets them get any UR.

It means much faster weapon upgrades. Once a person has everything they want, odds are they play less. It cuts down the amount of MP people have to play, which also means lower chance of microtransaction goodness for EA.

Yeah, I'll give you that the weapon mods would be easier, maybe just the UR's then because it is hard enough to get them to begin with let alone when you get a crappy one like the Indra it can be very frustrating to say the least...

On the plus side, it would make the game suck a bit less.

They'd still have to fix the utterly boring combat and repetitive nature of the game mode, but proper unlocks would help it suck less.
