Please do not obfuscate Season Journey achieves

  • This has been bothering me ever since Season Journey was put into the PTR. Currently, you can only see the current chapter's objectives, but not the upcoming chapters' objectives. What this leads to is unless you have a running list from somebody that's actually done them already (so said list could be compiled), you won't know what you can or can't do to "get ahead" as it were.

    Many players, myself included, like trying for challenges we might not necessarily be thought that we're ready for. Knowing what the objectives are means that instead of just blindly running into them, often before they even appear visible to us because we have yet to open their associated chapter, we could see if we are able to tick off a checkbox ahead of the curve, which actually makes us feel good. It does not feel good when we see an achievement pop up, look to see where it is, but can't because it's in hidden behind obfuscated chapter blocks.

    We like to plan characters and/or have goals to strive for when we're playing. Hiding these achievements behind an arcane barrier is rather frustrating and kills a good amount of the joy we could be deriving from actually having something to do during seasonal play. Nobody likes blindly stumbling into an achievement because it just feels like "OK, that happened...".

    Along the same lines, if for no othe reason than "huh?", please do away with the dialogue that "asks" us if we would like to accept the further challenges after the initial set of chapters. Do you really, honestly believe players are going to say no to earning more achievements and rewards during seasons?

    Stumbling into progress sucks. Having something you can make a plan from and run with it feels good.

    I know it's only kind of related, but I wish they would make the exclusive rewards more clear in game too. I'm pretty sure hitting 70 and getting 400 achievements points "completes" season 3, but it'd be great to be told so in game.

    It's very satisfying to have a giant list of achievements and slowly watch them all check off.

    Unlocking a series of objectives to find out i have already filled the majority of them is a true bummer.

    Thanks so much for sharing this feedback, guys. I love how each of you included not only what bothered you (not being able to see Achievements required to complete higher Chapters and Tiers), but also why it bothers you (the reasons quoted above).

    Gonna pass this on to the team. Again, I appreciate it!
