Knowing that, it’s not laborious to guess why a cooldown like this might be in place. Reports of the problem have been piling up on the sport’s subReddit for some time, with the most well-liked being simply over two-weeks-old.
In the put up, participant lbeLIEvel posted two GIFs of his character incomes 9,000 XP from finishing two Public Events on two completely different planets, minutes aside.
