Diablo 3 developer and former Blizzard manufacturer Travis Day has perfectly explained the biggest problems that plagued Anthem right now and offered solutions on how the game can be improved. This comes to the heels of Anthem 's launch late last week, which received a mixed response from both critics and fans.
The biggest source of negativity related to Anthem & # 39; s release is due both to the lack of previously promised release content and its heavily failed loot drop system. It also doesn't help that the game's physical launch sales were not all that big, allegedly selling half of Mass Effect: Andromed a itself considered a disappointment to developer BioWare and publishing Electronic Arts. But Anthem has its defenders, and many have taken on social media as Reddit for not only defending the game but offering constructive feedback on how the game can be improved in the future, including Day.

Posting on Reddit under the username TravisDay made the former Blizzard employee a longer post on Anthem s error and how they can be fixed. The most important issue that Day pointed out was Anthem's reward system or loot, and how it is structured in the game. Day argued that there is not enough reward incentive in the game, especially in Anthem s boss meetings. Day made it a point to emphasize that he enjoys the game, but offered an abundance of opportunities to improve the game's risks vs. rewards mechanics, such as more focus on activities targeting various forms of loot as opposed to boss and dungeon farming . 1
The day worked not only on Diablo 3 during its development, but was also one of the greatest influences for the game's restructured "loot 2.0" system which got a Warm reception from both fans and critics (who were remarkable after the original release of Diablo 3 received a major criticism for his reward system). Day left Blizzard last year and is currently working on Phoenix Labs on their upcoming Dauntless a Monster Hunter -like playing game is expected to start in April. Needless to say, many fans would claim that Day knows what he's talking about when it comes to lottery games like Anthem and how to improve them.
Still, the damage may have already been done in the case of Anthem . It is officially BioWare's worst rated game all the time on Metacritic, and it has received many negative comparisons with the second plot-based shooter Destiny . Hopefully, BioWare and EA can make some major changes, some of which are hopefully based on today's proposals and saving what has honestly become a catastrophic launch for Anthem .
