Now, first off, I did complete the Charisma showdown. It took me a few tries. But I completed it.
That being said; I DO NOT think it should be mandatory.
The time I spent trying to get the 30 pts could've been spent elsewhere. Doing Missions, Playing BR, etc.
I would like SDS to go back to the formula where there are multiple ways to complete a program.
Even if they don't want to make a PXP Mission repeatable; they can incorporate a Collection. They can include a Conquest Map. They can include Exchanges.
Heck, this Showdown was worth 30pts.
Do a Collect 'X' amount of Charisma cards for 20 pts and an Exchange for 10pts.
Do a Conquest Map for 30pts.
You can keep the Showdown in the program; but give us options.
ESPECIALLY IF THE REWARDS ARE NON SELLABLE AND ARE TIED TO A SPECIFIC SET
