The soft cap is bad system. (Criticism)

The soft cap is ostensibly designed to keep the community leveling together. I’d argue it does the opposite of that. Miss a week, and you fall behind with literally no way to catch up. It sucks.

Why is there no way to catch up?

you can catch up, but catching up is even time gated due to soft caps on drops that require you to wait on weekly resets for milestones.

Correct. You literally miss out on chances to progress if you skip a week. Those chances to level up go away forever instead of being delayed. I know exactly why this is too. If you could ‘bank’ rewards so that you could do last week’s that you missed in addition to this week’s, people would start banking and do a shit ton the first week new content drops. Because bypassing a stupid unfun limitation would totally ruin the game.

Get rid of light level. It’s an embarrassing blemish.
