Furthermore, we're talking about a break in the bi-weekly schedule due to an official holiday season which is wildly celebrated throughout the world. What exactly is the problem here? That the developers do not feel like working through that time to produce even further content for a bunch of complaining free-loaders who won't spend an extra dollar on the game anyway?
On the daily system overhaul itself, personally I welcome it and see only advantages for the player:
- You get more overall AP without being forced into doing categories you might not enjoy
- The actual activities have a matching reward attached to them
- The current rewards is still there and more easily delivered
Ultimately, everyone is gaining through this.
