    The end of speedrunning?

    The Shadow Tower purple name has been retired, but will likely appear in Delves as a later reward.

    If there is no reward(color name) for placing in the top 100 fastest dotm kills then there is NO reason to do it.

    Side note: The ST adventure has been replaced with a delve adventure in clubs.
    So no more st quest? Why remove it just make a new quest?

    Shadow Towers have had titan and lunar soul drops removed. These can now be obtained through Delves

    Do shadow towers have no rewards now?
    Just shadow caches? What's the point of doing them if just shadow caches an heart of darkness? Dont destroy shadow tower to just move rewards to new content so people will play it!!

    this is definitely a step in the wrong direction by gamigo. when I first heard that we are getting a shadow tower rework I imagined something like a single world loaded with many cursed skulls and at the very end there is the boss battle. basically merging 4 worlds into one.

    LMAO they are removing mastery and purple names, like, are they trying to force away the last remaining players? Lets be real, not many new comers. Already hated geode cave update, now they are forcing me back into that crap, nooooo thank you.

    As far as i'm aware, Despoiled Divinity will still be obtained from shadow towers.

    Yes, there's no reason to speedrun dotm after the patch, but as was stated in the patch notes, the purple name will most likely be re-added to delves to give those the same competitive aspect.

    And let's be honest, were you really having fun sitting still and shooting the same one mob over and over, hoping your group didn't lag to get 0.01 faster? STILL?? for 4 years straight??? Its time for a change. delves are the way forward.

    Ngl, kind of enjoyed shadow towers an speed running, it just feels like forced lazy content. Why take everything important in towers an move it? Why not just add a new color named.

    It's like asking do you enjoy doing the same dungeons for 4 years. Playing the same classes for years. Speedrun wasnt so much competitive then repetitive but people still pushed for it an make classes just to do so,

    Is there even a reason for c4 gear? It wont be anything over the top over c3 an the only reason why most people got endgame mastery an gear is to speedrun or leaderboard an they are taking out half the reason. Everything is just up in the air an alot of talk is happening between the endgame players on console an it is not good.

    I get why they are removing ST drops and purple name.
    Lowering lag by trying to force people in u11.

    Im guessing all items from ST will be in the chests after killing a boss in u11 making ST pointless for anyone to bother, like we dont do u9 after u10 came out really.
    Purple name will make a return to players who can reach the farthermost cleared floor if I had to guess. But I think you can invite people in to a private u11 at any time?

    SR needs to go if were looking to remove lag in this up date via removing the reason people open ST but without a replacement at launch will feel like a cop out.
    Removing ST changes the feel of the game totally... 1000s of st are still needed for badges etc.. new players are going have content they can never reach.
    I understand why but the how seems so broken in the long run. Either new players will never be able to complete content or its removed and people who spent months or years will get things removed they earned...
