So much of the complaining in the ninja event rewards can be solved very easily by creating thresholds to get rewards instead of rankings/placements.
Top tier, full reward : for those who earn >98% of max ninja coins. This allows for 3 crashed CoF plus a missed tower.
Second tier, 50% of full reward : for those who earn 97% of max ninja coins. This prevents those who miss many CoF from getting full prize.
Third tier, 10% of full reward : for those who earn 95% of max coins. This prevents those who miss many CoF and gate towers from getting full prize.
Lower tiers : Multiple failed islands incur major reward penalty, no uber chests, and much fewer ninjas.
And that’s it! Crashes/disconnects don’t completely frustrate players and disrupt the event, and players will still give their all to get top tiers.
Change the reward system and quell so much of crash/disconnect frustration, Flare.
