Man, I am now grinding events just because of Summer Keys, and still 8 more keys to collect.
This is not event anymore, this is a grinding session. SEMC should have read League of Legend Dev’s blogs about creating missions and events.
Things could have been better if they create an event like this. Theme: finding a friend and play with them.
-> Announce a ping set, theme Antique (antique style, might not fit 80% people, but that the aim: for collection purpose, not showing off)
-> mission 1: play 1 bot game with a premade friend -> reward 1 ping. (Description: let’s know a little bit about your premade friend before join up in the Fold)
-> mission 2: play 3 casual 3v3 game with a friend -> reward 1 ping. (Description: time to bring theory into practice).
-> mission 3: win 1 ranked 3v3 game with a friend -> reward 1 ping. (Description: you think both of you are ready? Then head for a ranked to show that you guys are the best).
-> mission 4: play 3 casual 5v5 game with a friend -> reward 1 ping. (Description: Storm Queen needs you both to fight against the Churn. Prepare yourself!)
-> mission 5: win 1 ranked 5v5 game with a friend -> reward 1 ping. (Description: the Churn has come near. Gear up and show what you and your friend have).
-> mission 6: collect all pings from the set -> reward 1 Summer Key
Optional (if SEMC want to have more money)
-> mission 7: Summer Party Squad: play a PVP match with all your premade friends and you using Summer Party Skins. -> reward 2 random pings from set.
-> mission 8: Win a blitz match with legendaries talents only from Summer Party Squad.
Now this will make people wishing to spending money for a set of ping, not for 1 shjtty summer key.
