Distance - new levels

I am going to bitch a little...in the past, I was able to defeat the Hard mode after losing a few of my roster.  The rewards were nice (some gold fragments).  It was fun. 
Now the hard mode is way too easy and nightmare is impossible (at least for me).  
I wish Hard was kept as it was (same everything) and nightmare could be whatever for the real dedicated slayers (my hat goes off to the .1%ers). 
OK....done bitching.

    Good thing they didn't change the rewards for Hard at all.

    Now I can mindlessly grind more easily and get my components while patiently and slowly building what I will need to be able to stab at Nightmare. There's actual progression.

    If you want greater difficulty on Distance, try doing a Lord's challenge with Ezekiel or Jerry in your team. Good luck with that.

    Rewards did not stay the same though. I use to get gold badge pieces but now only epic is there.
    Maybe I drank too much back in the day but I know there were gold fragments there?
    Someone else has to see what I think I saw????

    Sorry sir you are mistaken

    Years ago they ran an event, one week, on two different occasions, that subbed in gold components in hard Distance. 

    But it was only an event and hasn't happened in years. 

    Other than those very few exceptions, only blue components max were ever available in hard mode.

    Sorry Atlas, but check the old Distance rewards posts. There was ALWAYS a legendary component at 20 in Hard, and there still is now. Or were you talking about badge fragments?

    Maybe I am just getting senile?  I could swear there were some boards with gold badges/fragments.
    Well then let me think of something else to bitch at:  too much snow, wife's headaches(haha), kids are brats, boss is a ____.

    Still one leg component at level 20. No frag ever since.

    My bad you're right. I was indeed recalling the Frags. Old age.

    I'm not completely losing it, @TJS used to post these gif all the time. Notice no gold component. So they added it in later.

    And then on 2 occasions they also did boosted component rarities, including gold frags, in place of the blue ones.

    Yeah, that GIF was back in the day when we only had one day to complete it, but we had two tries per week. I think they added the Gold Frag when they pushed it to once per week for the whole week. I don't remember the gas cost being only 1, but it's been a while and I flushed my memory to make room for some porn DVDs. :lol:

    The gold comp in hard distance hasn't always been there. I don't remember when it was added but there was 100% a time when it wasn't. NML wordpress website link is below which was the holy grail before OLT stopped updating and then Jeff wrote his thread. If you scroll to the rewards at the bottom you can see no gold comp is listed.

    @ATLAS-Z is correct in recalling a time where distance rewards were suped up for a week. I think 2* were bumped into 3*, 3* into 4* and so on. I can only remember it being a one time thing though, maybe twice.
