View Full Version : Why would the game show items you did not get?

After the end of the game, majority of players think they got all of the items shown even though they received nothing at all. This leads to confusion and many people think its a bug.

Why would it be necessary to have those sparkling special effects shown one by one in each item when you didn't won them all in the first place?

Why not just show ONE glittery effect animation (the item you found) and then a quick summary for the other items the others have instead.

If you didn't found an item, then no animation will be placed. Just a quick summary of all the items found by the players below, without the glitters.

The end game animation is quite long enough, adding special animations to unnecessary items ONE by ONE makes it even longer.


Seriously, its like showing something in my face which I don't get to receive anyway. Just my two cents.
