Ghost Recon Breakpoint had several bumps in a maintenance date, which prompted Ubisoft to compensate players for the wait but it turned out to be well below the players' expectations.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint Title Update 3.0 is live and the accompanying maintenance is over. The players are back in the game but the way Ubisoft handled the whole ordeal didn't hold up to a good standard.
As a way to thank the players for patience with the patch, the devs offered some freebies to lessen the inconvenience caused by tardiness. One of them was the custom Desert Eagle and the other a grand total of 1,200 Skell Credits.
This is the currency that can be earned in-game, not the premium one, which is already a reason for some to rebel but the actual amount seems to be the factor that insulted most players.
Several fans pointed out that this is the equivalent of five minutes' work in Ghost Recon Breakpoint, although the claims are anecdotal and the actual time necessary may vary. The point still holds though - it doesn't take long to get this much currency.
Now, there have been worse attempts at compensation in live service games but the more troubling fact is that those who are trying to play GR:B are often facing crashes and rollbacks. It is for this reason that players get infuriated the most as some of them pointed out that Skell Credit quantities they lost this way far outweigh the 1,200 they received.
The Desert Eagle reward seems to be a skin so far and not one that will win any beauty contests . Overall, the players seem to be displeased and are just hoping the crashes will go away.
