I haven’t played one that wasn’t unbeatable, but will say playing groups is the go to if are looking for just the mats. RNG is a big factor for some of the builds like getting immediately crits on elites to one shot them in some cases. They have been relatively easy recently, but yeah there have been ones that have been hard in comparison. The main reason I like them because you are 100% on even playing field with other players, so its the actual best competition compared to actual seasons since a lot of RNG factors come into play in seasons whereas, everyone is playing the same build, same map, etc. and is more skill involved. I think additional bounty bags for top spots would be a nice incentive and also for in seasons as well.
On the Asia server, they have more cosmetics, so maybe get rewarded with being able to pick one from the big list. Thing is there are cheaters and hackers are on every console except xbox, so it makes it a mute point unless they fix that problem first. Just small changes to make the game more appealing. I have others like QoL changes or Ubers Rifts and primals mats as an example.
