Well then I have to say I'd much rather see just mods.
Amplifiers will now just be a grind to the most optimal stats so you can stay competitive and by selecting a particular Set you pigeon hole yourself into that build for that game.
Mods however if done right seem like they could be something new and awesome.
An amplifier system similar to league's rune system would provide for an additional level of customization, an additional level of player progression, and ultimately a great incentive for people to keep playing the game. All good things.
The costs of these amplifiers and the amount of merit we earn per game are all subject to change up to and even after release. There is no information to suggest that an amplifier or page will cost anywhere near the price of a new champ. You have absolutely no basis for this claim.Originally Posted by qw0r7y
I think you and I have very different points of view when it comes to progression in a game. I don't expect to be handed everything on a silver platter, and I wouldn't enjoy it as much if it was.
As I said before, I'm really looking forward to trying out the amplifier system, and judging by the contents of the thread you posted, I'm clearly not the only one.
Team A doesn't want to scrim, they still don't have amplifier pages.
Team B wants to switch over to IC from Dawngate, sees they all need to grind out powers, amplifiers, and champions, and decide against it.
Team C wants to scrim an EU team, but has no champions, powers, and now ******, unoptimized amplifier pages.
Please, you guys need to reconsider this version of amplifiers. It's clear you put a lot of work into this system, and other than the process of obtaining them, everyone seems ok with this system.
But please, please, don't put ANOTHER treadmill in.
I warned you that this would cause a major backlash, I really want this game to succeed, as like i said people prefer no boosts from anything other then in-game or it will cause a confusion of "P2W" even if it isn't.
this makes pie a sad cat
While I love the idea of Item Amplifiers, I'm not so much a fan of the need for Amplifiers overall.
I suppose for me it all depends on implementation. Too many amps that you have to unlock, and with merit, and the game will draw too many parallels to lol. That, imo, is the most damning aspect.
With so many other innovations (unique stolen powers, Relay based buffs on CC), I feel like this is a little too much like 'the competition', save the Item amps.

No sir, I do not like it
And who on earth thought runes which ware ONLY obtainable with winnable currency were pay-to-win? Again, not once did I hear this complaint while playing league.
