I was actually quite excited for this content update, since we were promised proper story content -- but upon now having played two missions in the Warzone, I'm very much disappointed; here's why:
- The story content is just one short text, nothing else -- there aren't even the voice comms from our Captain or our resident Astartes at the beginning of a mission anymore, nothing to provide context, an overview of goals or some kind of motivation.
- Speaking of goals... it's just the same old uninspired "clear every room", without any trace of story content while doing so whatsoever... no cogitators to access, no logs, no pict-recordings to access -- nothing!
Just mindlessly run through the same map layout again and again and kill everything. Grind much?
- But it gets even worse: THERE IS NO LOOT WHATSOEVER!
You must kill hundreds of enemies, including commanders/bosses, and none of them drop anything at all(!),not even innoculator or skill charges, let alone actual loot... this is offficially the single most boring and useless grindfest I've ever seen, where we don't even get any bloody loot for all the boring, uninspired "Kill everything"-missions on permanent repeat.
- So on top of zero loot, zero story presentation, zero inspired mission design, levelling once again is slow, making it obvious that going through the "content" will take quite some time... but sorry, dear devs, this ISN'T how you keep players motivated and happy to play your game. Proper, actual content is what keeps any MMO/online-game afloat, interesting and relevant -- what you have delivered isn't content, it's a barely disguised grindfest that not only gives you nothing new, but even worse, gives you less than before, re the now missing voiceovers from our bridge crew, map and mission type variety, etc.
I had really high hopes that this game would receive properly motivating longterm content updates... but so far, it's been a very cool story campaign and then nothing. Just uninspired grind, grind, grind, grind... oh, and grind.
