  3. So when the Drifter says you have enough why do people still farm for motes?

And then proceed to die and we go back having to farm again when the f***ing person could have just deposited them ASAP?!

Also. Is it normal for me to get kinda pissed off that I work hard killing an elite or whatever and a random teammate just cleans up the emotes and runs away?

Maybe because of a bounty:

Deposit 25 small blockers
Deposit 15 medium blockers
Deposit 5 large blockers

Only thing I can think of.

I suggest not taking it so personal.

People are trying to have fun, not giving it another thought when you're over here damn near haunted by it.

That's not to say I don't get it.

Because they are idiots and Dante is constructing an eighth level of hell especially for them

Sometimes because they foolishly want to grab X more motes to get a blocker instead of just getting the the primeval up. Often I suspect they just don't fully understand how the game mode works so they don't know that the Drifter is telling them that they can summon a primeval immediately if they deposit their motes. Really wish there was a way to type in game to give people helpful advice because I think a lot of things that really frustrate people about Gambit are things that can be pretty quickly explained.

If they are taking the motes and depositing them at the appropriate time, no it's not normal. It's a team game. If they are hoarding them only to get killed by an invader, yes, it's understandably frustrating.

I don't know if the Drifter is particularly trustworthy.

Maybe we have enough motes to call a Primeval,
or maybe he's up to no good, and I'm not giving him my motes!

Hmm. He also says “get me those motes, brother, and i’ll make you rich”. I keep feeding him motes but not once has he handed over a gold brick or a diamond or a nice useless pile of glimmer.

You may have a point.

Dropping more blockers ain't bad. That's why I clean up sometimes.

Because sometimes it's ok to have another ogre go out to slow the enemy team down. And instead of complaining about it, maybe help them out so they don't die on the way back... you know, like a team...

I see this point but more often than not the person has 11 motes trying to get that 15 by themselves because everyone ran back and banked. You die with those motes and it’s a big loss of time. Get yours up first and you have a better shot at winning. Seconds count.

Not saying you are wrong on the ogre, but I tend to err on the side of caution. I would rather have the primeval pop up so I can burn down the wizards without worrying about invaders.
