Hi Exiles, GGG has announced that they will be running a competitive Flashback Event from 9am Saturday May 11th (NZT) until 10am Tuesday June 4th (NZT). Find out more in this news post! A player react to Flashback Event.
I really want to say "good god, no!", but the low-level MTX freebie is a nice gesture and I'm sure it won't hurt to participate just enough to earn that box at least.
Why am I negative? Because I predict a technical mess; I can't see how it can not be one. All those extra mods and crazy happenings and events that occur in every area? If our consoles aren't crashing every 5 minutes, we'll be playing at 5fps rubberbanding and lag-hopping everywhere while so much random nonsense is happening that it would feel like a hacker vomited on the server...
Hope you folks on PC are able to enjoy this, because you at least stand a chance. But unless there's been a whole lot of stability improvements and optimizing behind the scenes, we on console are likely only getting it because they didn't want us to feel like second-class citizens, but if it has half as many problems as I'm envisioning... we're doomed.
Imagine mid-low tier maps, how they currently are on console. Now imagine that occurring all the way through the game from Twilight Strand.
The early stages will probably be the only few stable ones, but level 35 is low enough to be reachable from just those, so getting the mystery box and getting out of there seems like the best plan.
Personally, I’d much prefer Flashback, as you can truly sink your teeth into the content, and it isn’t void at the end.
