Like others have said; it's a long needed and welcome change, but it simply shows how easy they can go back on their adamant, definite word. So how long until they do the same and introduce another gear tier or something? I may be exaggerating or being rather facetious but who knows what Anet are going to do next.

What's the rush? Like i've been saying you can do all types of content (sans fractals and potentially certain paths of Arah) in rares so I just don't understand why people complain about having to wait a few days longer to get exotics

Are you participating in other parts of the game? Or are you just doing dungeons over and over again?

And holy god 2000 tokens? That must've been awhile back since DR was implemented a long time ago.

Nah, I think my max was around 1800, but typically it's be around 1200 from around 6 cycles through CoE, right up to the latest patch. Obviously depended on how many other dungeons we did that day. But yeah we mostly farm dungeons for fun and gold, and enjoyed playing several alts with differing playstyles throughout the day and receiving the rewards each time.

I'm not telling people how to play the game.

I'm telling people that they have no right to QQ about the fact that rewards take longer because they're playing more than one toon.

It's kind of a derp complaint.

Besides, you may be willing to work harder but you're certainly impatient.

Those two are kinda like oil and water.

You should do something about that.

It's not about the amount of work needed to gear alts. At least for me, it's about the time-gated reward structures.

Before this change, I could run any specific dungeon numerous times, once on each character, in order to get a set of armour (whether for current char and different playstyle, or a new alt or just for looks etc) pretty quickly; I've been known to earn 2000 CoE tokens in a day when farming for cores.

Now however, I can get 180 (plus some bags) per day. That's it, unless I want to get 20 per run afterwards. I'm willing to put in the work to gear alts, as much or more than my main had... but with this change I'm not able to, I pretty much have to wait days/weeks to earn something I could have done in a day or two, if I wanted. The issue is about choice... and time should be the main limiting factor.

you'd be surprised at how hard that could be to a PuG...

Oh, I know :) But CoE p1 was on the list of quick/easy dungeons, and my point was just that path 3 isn't any more difficult as the co-ordination is the same thing :)

Relatively difficult with pugs though, due to co-ordination issues.

I'd agree with AC p2 yeah. CoE isn't difficult... or only as difficult as p1, it's still getting 3 people to press a button on countdown.
