As a general thought for comments like "There are bigger issues to worry about." or "Watch this get nerfed immediately, but X will take longer." When you implementing fixes, features, balance changes, etc. into a game, it isn't normally the team "scheming" against the community. It's about prioritization and ease/cost to implement. The team has X number of things that HAVE to be implemented. They start with the top and then go down the list to see what can make it in when. It also varies based on who is working on what. If someone finishes a task that is preventing another task and so forth and so on. So you may have X feature that is the top priority, that is going to take up most of the dev and design teams time. Then, you have X number of other tasks to complete. You prioritize and then fit in what you can. Maybe someone finishes a task ahead of schedule, so they pick up a small task that can be completed before pushing live. Just to give y'all some insight. It's not always black and white. There are a lot of moving parts.
Yes but even then we (the players) know very well just how many things, small or big, are there for VR to focus on that are more important. This isnt harming anyone, it isnt broken, it isnt OP. Its nice to have more than 1 way to lvl. Do ppl not elix? Ofc they do, but for lazyasses like me I like to do quests and bounties on my lvl 188 alt, even tho in the mini event I elixed him. Im just too bored of solo elixing sometimes or other times Im just not free enough to do it or focused enough to put 15 mins into making my elix worthwhile (even tho I have 550 or so xps, Im just a cheapass, me being the jew I am), so having something like bounties and repeatables to make small progress each time without having to focus 15 mins into furious screen mashing is decent.
Also, as u stated it can be a way to find bots.
