Exactly this, what was the point of obtaining gear when something that didn't require gear beats most content with gear income wise. Shadow arena was broken OP for newer AND older players, both benefited from it. It was even more OP for cheaters so this could not go untouched whatsoever. Only two easy ways for PA to fix this, 1. Remove SA like they did 2. Nerf SA rewards Either way all those that played SA only for its rewards will still complain so it doesn't really matter what they did. What type are you guys? be honest with yourself. Those that did find it fun and rewarding well now i hope you still find that same 'fun' you had with its great rewards at the time when it comes back as a stand alone game. If not then you never did find it fun, and that should be obvious to yourself, no need to tell us because in the end it doesn't matter. Battle Royale games like apex legends, fortnite or pubg are played to have fun. No one gets rewards for those games other than FUN, so why can't you guys just accept that reward also here? Fun and a good time. Because in the end that is what battle royale games are, you don't see battlefield BR game affecting it's campaign right? Same thing here. Or you don't see the apex legends version affecting Titanfalls games and it's universe since that's where it came from right? So i don't see any problem here. Have a good day everyone!
