For those who dont understand what this mean ill have a tweet from another developer later on that explains what this system will do in their game.
But ehh also here have a tl;dr: Change how dailies work so after a day of you not doing them they dont reset and instead save up (u bank them) to do them later when u wish to.
Ggg creators of path of exile have recently revealed their next content update and with it a rework to a core piece of content, master missions.
Master missions are you normal daily, you get them then you go do them, for a while players complained in that game that they miss days or that they dont want to do them a day because they are doing smth else in the game and their daily nature makes them feel forced.
The new system will now save up the dailies ppl get in that game and you will be able whenever you want to go and do them.
I feel like this system could be a solid fit for daily fractals in gw2 for a couple reasons, for one the reasons stated above while also the fact that the fractal Content itself drops in value massively after going through the dailies for the day.
In gw2 the system could work like this: Today the dailies are underground facility, volcanic and nightmare. If someone doesnt have time to do said content these wont disappear after the reset, new dailies will apear but the old ones will be banked for you to do whenever you want (if you want to do them).
So if you log in in game on monday then go for a trip a week and log in the next monday you will have available to you the dailies of this monday and banked all the dailes from last week.
Now Poe wont have a cap afaik or maybe they will have but it will be a high one, it would be up to anet what the cap could be (10 of each? 25? 50?).
What this does:
1) Like now it still allows everyone to be on an equal footing (now we do them daily or not and that aplies to all) with this system we will all be able to do them daily or not and if not schedule when we want to do them ones we have banked or not. Everyone is given the same amount of content and no one gets more out of it.
2) it gives ppl with diff schedules and free time flexibility on how they want to tackle the content as well as agency. If you are content with how you do now (or dont do fractals) nothing will change, you will still get the same content to do (or not) and the same rewards as every body else. If you have more time on the weekemds but not enough time daily to log in and play the content or you simply more absorbed into doing smth else in the game during that day (wvw or pvp all day, maybe practicing with friends for a raid or you are catching up on story) the runs will be banked for you and you wont have to interupt your ganeplay to go and do them because if you dont you miss out.
If you enjoyed the nature of older content where u could have a fractals day or a dungeons day this system allows you to bank runs and then dedicate with your firends or smth a day just doing the content you like.
