The random feature still has less functionality than it did 4 years ago.
  • Can't select skins when randoming.
  • Can't back out of randoming.
  • No bonus rewards for randoming.

Seriously no one uses the random button unless they have a daily to do so. Why even keep this feature if the only way anyone uses it is when forced to do so?
Even in situations where I'd want to random a character I'd more-than-likely just use a Random Number Generator so I can wear my skins.

Renamed the title to accurately describe the thread.

Make the skin random sure but the rest of this is an aimless rant.

Also ffs stop using titles like that

Because I have nothing useful to add here beyond what Eddster said, I'm going to point out that "more than likely" is here adverbial and doesn't need hyphens.

Just an interesting thought.

I’m going to not be miserable and agree with you.

While I agree that you should get a random skin from the ones you own for a character and that there should be extra points or exp awarded for randoming, I feel like being able to back out of selection would only be a waste of time since the entire point of random is to get a random character.

If you don't like the one it gave you, oh well. It was random. :shrug:

Being able to back out of a random character just defeates the entire point though, you asked for a random character so you get one, you know what you're jumping into. I do agree that skins should be random too though since even worse that I can't even pick a skin after the character has been picked. Getting a small reward for picking random like in the past would also be nice, I never got why they removed it.

Now that the game is free to play, its possible to own just 1 naut, and then get it every time from the Random, and yet earn "Random bonus" even though you are just using your main.. :thumb:

Hmm, except that the free rotation nauts maybe are picked for random as well, which would make my clever idea not to work. :voltarroll:

I don't like that random button because:
1. I don't play well enough to use it.
2. I could pick Ksenia or Qi'Tara manually if I wanted to.

I agree with the random skin feature and bonus rewards though.

I occasinoally have to take a random naut, since if I have a second controller turned off (forgotten) in 2P game, the game doesnt recognize it as 2nd player controller in the character choosing menu even if turned on there, and both controllers and mouse+kb all control just P1, and the second player is forced to wait 60 seconds and take random naut, lol. :thumb:

When the game starts you can set the controls correct in a few seconds though so one player doesnt have to play 2 nauts with 1 controller, although that too is possible in fact! :voltarroll:
