I think flares should be removed from the game entirely and the bosses should just show up on the map by default.
This is a weird pointless time wasting mechanic that seems to only exist as another thing to get people to waste mats on. Mats that are highly limited by time and currency as it is. There are plenty of monetization aspects to the game without this so it would be a nice QoL change.
I wouldn’t remove the flares however.
The flares could have a fair use for bosses that disappear for a short amount of time and then attack from underground. In order to dodge those attacks in a reliable way, you could use flares to still see the boss on the minimap. This doesn’t need to be implemented because it’s already in the game.
They’ve specifically already talked about changing some of the aspects of the game for this market.
Wasting people’s time just to find the boss doesn’t really add any value to the game at all.
I would agree with the point made above that they could stay as an actual combat item that’s useful on fights where the boss hides or whatever, but in terms of when you enter the raid or the boss moves, you shouldn’t have to waste a “combat item” in order to just find where the boss is waiting for you.
Your post is lazy and lacks substance, try harder.
The “hardship” keeping you from your loot is beating the boss in time.
Just finding it on the map is a pointless minor inconvenience that exists to waste materials. Materials you could have spent on an actual “combat item” that you use in actual combat.
The fact that this “hardship” can be removed by popping a consumable suggests you think it’s fine to remove hardships with consumables. I guess I should just be able to pop a consumable to one shot the boss as well based on your contradictory logic where you before somehow thought my point was equivalent to automatically getting loot. Weird.
Some people troll the feedback forums and blindly defend the status quo for god knows what reason. Someday they may actually contribute a useful counter argument of some kind at the very least, instead of just posting snark.
