So around four or five months ago, I made a thread on the old forums asking TC to finally just let us craft the first Horde skill card to unlock our skills. TC Octus posted in the thread that that was probably gonna be too much work for the current Live Team to implement, but that they’d look into another way to get us our Horde skills (a post that I linked in this thread, though that link is dead now that the old forums are purged). Well, it’s been months now, like I said, and we still have only the same RNG-dependent system the game launched with.
I posted in the player-created achievements thread a suggestion to make all those Horde challenges I made up (in the link above) into real achievements, which granted one of the respective skill cards once completed, but I knew that was a long shot. Unless the two secret achievements on the preliminary achievement list award all the Rare and Epic cards when unlocked, the achievement method isn’t happening.
So, is a new way to unlock Horde skills actually going to happen? One that isn’t RNG or real-money only? The current crappy system has stuck around way longer than it should’ve.
