40 STEEL for a 20-25 minute Dominion game is pretty bad. At that rate, it takes 25 Dominion games to earn 1000 credits. That's over 8 HOURS of playtime. I'm using Dominion as an example because it consistently gives more STEEL than the other modes. Duel, Brawl, Skirmish and Elimination are just as bad. Orders help, but they're not enough. Earning credits after completing the daily Orders seems futile. The store sells 5000 STEEL for $4.99. That means we're playing for pennies each hour...How does that make sense? Microtransactions are meant to be a shortcut for busy people, NOT THE OPTIMAL METHOD of obtaining in-game currency & progressing.

All credit rewards need be buffed by AT LEAST 50-75%
Make it happen.

It's already incredibly easy to earn Steel if you do all of your orders, and just play the game normally.

Buffing the rewards would just lead more people to complain about things like Gearscore.

Games dont really last 20-25m though.

The highest amount of time ive spent in a game is a little over 9 minutes..

Secondly steel is pretty easy to get. 600 Daily and another 600 every two days on top of what youre earning in games.

However i think they should add some sort of incentive to participate in the faction war besides winning rounds and seasons. Like maybe 100 steel to whichever faction has the most territories at the end of a turn. Since theres like 50 turns and it seems the top faction fluctuates enough, it would give more reason to play turns rather than just waiting till the last 2 days to really care.

Just play for 1 hour everyday to do the dailies. That's 600 steel + 100 you get for playing for 1 hour. So 700 total steel everyday if you put in 1 hour.

It's not that bad, after a month you will have 21k which is enough to get 108 gear.

That doesn't make sense. At all.

I timed 5 Dominion games before making this post. The average time was 21 minutes....

When you finish your daily orders, you're playing for PENNIES per hour. Everyone is cool with that? Ok, I guess I'm the odd man out.

Considering most games don't pay you to play at all, I am okay with that.

Given the cost of things in game vs. reward, it is very unbalanced. Why did I buy a season pass... I thought it would get me great and glorious rewards... I 100% agree with OP logic, steel should be boosted and season pass holders could use a way greater incentive.

You can get roughly (once again) 10k steel a week. 4200 from dailies orders. 1800-2400 from contracts. That's already 6000-6400. Then throw on the match steel and you got yourself......probbaly an extra 3000+ steel right there.

Dominion gives you 40 steel a match win or lose.

Most dominion matches average 8-10 minutes.

So let's go with 8 minute matches. You play for 3 hours with nothing but dominion. In 3 hours you can make 960 steel.

So if you played dominion for 3 hours a day for 1 week you would have 6720 steel to spend.

and properly another 5 or 6 k+ trough orders.

Atleast I had no problem to get 15k paket 80Gearscrore on a single hero a legendary weapon and 5k steel saved up again in 40h play time and maybe another 10 hours for the campaing. But yeah, I guess buffing it up by 20steel or something per game wouldnt hurt and help alot to get the people gear on multiple toons. While my problem is rather leveling them to rep3 ^.^

except when you only play dominion. then you donīt fulfill orders.

Lol. Well that is a choice. Play more than Dominion. The other modes have their merits.
