Agree with the post above. Masterful Cast tasks DO NOT BELONG in core gameplay. They are not of equal difficulty on all devices. They are not fair to those with mobility issues. You want to challenge the people that have phones that let them play on "easy" mode? Give them a badge for doing as many as they can in a row.
Leaving players with empty white spaces because either their device or their disability does not permit Masterful casts will do nothing but alienate those players targeted by that particular choice.
Yes, I filled in the survey. Yes, I'd like some QOL improvements like ability to switch professions in the fortress. But the Masterful Casts issue is game breaking as soon as you require them in core gameplay (i.e. the first four stages of a Brilliant Event).
I agree with this. I am a dedicated level 56 wizard in this game. With every other difficult required task in previous events there are options to do, the time to grind, brute force, or purchase your way to complete the event.
I mention these three because I am a member with a neuro muscular disease. Sometimes I have to go beyond what "normal" gamers can achieve easily. I'm okay with that, I choose that option. I game for chronic pain maintainance. HPWU is just one game in my medicine cabinet.
With this task there is no way. Warner Bros Games has decided their games are only for those who are of "normal" abilties.
At least if you had chosen return 50 or 100 ..or whatever crazy number you want....of fragments using Flipendo there's a way to grind thru that.
This is not something that everyone can do even with "tips". It requires speed and accuracy ie: small muscle control and dexterity.
We lose the bonus tasks too.
*When this event has ended, I'd like to know the percentage of members who failed to meet this one requirement.
Do you really have so many actively involved daily users that you can afford to alienate members of your base? My friends list doesn't reflect that. Most no longer play at all. My premium gifts for friends runith over.
Don’t waste your tonics
I quit. Spent all day trying to get 2 masterful Flipendo spells with numerous tonics.
Thanks for adding wormwood... it's not very common around here.
Wormwood will be included in this! Just added that to the post.
This just in - we also will be boosting seeds and water on the map! I hope to see glowing greenhouses in the upcoming weeks :)
I'm now at Task 4. I've been practicing Flipendo, including before I strike, and the best I've been able to do is a strong Great. I'm going to make the attempt to complete this, because I have 5 days left. But, even if I manage to, I probably won't have time to complete the Bonus, which will make this the first event OF ANY KIND I have not completed.
Either way, I lose. It's just a matter of how much.
@THEREALUPPITY Me too! There are just some spells I'm not good at, and flipendo is one of them.
I am in the same boat with arthritis. I’ve played daily since the game began - but can rarely even get a Great on a Flipendo and the 5 Great casts in a row was a killer. Really frustrated when I saw this requirement as is impossible for me to even try - waste of time, too. And not like Niantic hasn’t heard this before so I take it as a conscious decision on their part.
