Just like Dratnos says xd
Previous cap was 12k tho.
Just remove the cap it's pointless
Just remove cap completely. So what if people stockpile for sockets? Maybe you should've reduced the amount needed to hit the socket tier, or increased socket cost instead?
why tf is there a cap. just let me collect.
22k cap just shows how &*!@ing stupid Blizzard is. I'm currently 1.5k rep into T4, meaning I have 9.5k rep to go to get to T5, meaning I need 19k research to get to T5, but I'm already at 11.5k research banked and I have nothing of any use to buy except rift keys at 100 per. So that means I will have to waste 8.5k research on useless garbage before I hit T5. Pathetic !@#$ing fix.
what's the point of a cap? and what's the point of a cap with nothing to spend it on?
The cap is there so that people don't hoard 120k of Cataloged Research ranking it up all the way from Tier 1 to Tier 6 and have access to all the sockets they need as soon as they unlock it. Needs to keep improving the player engagement metrics you know.
Remove cap or add boxes of stygia/anima/tradeskill resources to spend them on. Increasing cap to 22k only pushes up the time when people will eventually hit that cap and have the same issue of having to destroy them because there's nothing to use them on.
Now increase the anima reserve from 35k to infinite. I have 3, 32 slot bags full of anima stuff..
People who grind for 14 hours per day since patch: "Why does Blizzard hate its players?"
Why even have a cap? whats the issue with it?
Anyone will face the cap problem regardless if you are hardcore or casual, you are lucky the hardcore players are reporting the issue early so you don't experience it in a week or 2. Unless you have very good box rng for slots you need at 220 or you get some leech/avoidance their is not much to spend the research on.
This still doesn't solve the problem of you needing like 70k currency to max the rep and there being nothing to spend it on for people who don't need 220 gear. They need to add a currency dump at like rank 4 that is even a tiny bit useful as currently people not needing 220 gear are basically just deleting the currency.
This would have been great before I had to dump into armor I didnt need to hit rank 4 for the 20% increase to my rep drops. Thanks for sucking blizz. please beta test your own stuff -.-
just remove cap, i don't see how a cap on this is effectively helping anyone
