I still think Darwin was the only crate mission prize worth going for. It was costly, but I can still use it and will always be able to. Same thing with these properties with the added critical hits. Always able to use them. They need more stuff like that.
I would gladly give a right arm for a Darwin. Not mine of course, being that I'm right handed and would need my own, but I'd fork over one belonging to someone else in a heartbeat. But at the same time, the Valentine crate was awesome if you're an attacker. The gun, coat, and hat gives a +73% increase. And there is part of me that wishes I had the 420 tat. I was in the process when r/l came calling.
The Black Market would be so advantageous to everybody. It would be cool if they included rackets in it also. They have totally whiffed on this. One of the things that confuse me is the gala. It filled with items that I could just flat out buy or get from doing missions. I feel so violated every time I end up with a captain's hat...or even worse a WWII helmet.
But with all that being said, instead of new additions (missions, equipment changes) to make the game better, I would much rather see improvements to the current conditions. There has to be a way to remove those same names on my attack list that I see everyday that oh btw "can't be attacked right now". And I would def. need that ability to attack lvls lower than me altered. Being listed by someone daily that is to low for you to attack and waaay to low for you to list backs get's awfully frustrating at times. Not everyone has a plethora of accounts. That could be a tweak to the rivalry list. Hey I can dream......can't I?
