Cooldowns in ninja at least seem explainable - boat sails to target what takes time. Cooldowns in conquest, however, don’t - you get from A to B instantly and then wait for X minutes instead of taking the time to get there. I know why it’s like this but it looks annoying and pointless.
That being said, I hate the ninja cooldowns too and don’t know why they’re even there. It’s needless padding. We have 32 total attempts regardless, why not be able to do the entire event in one sitting, just like pro league (there are no cooldowns there, fancy that)?
Also, I think the difficulty needs to be more even. The first 25 islands are a waste of time, might as well remove them and pay the gold/exp/medals upfront, it’ll be less bothersome that way.
