Topic: KingsRoad / next event items

The way Rumble is going, it’s probably unattainable without shelling out money.

Topic: KingsRoad / KingsRoad Release Notes 9/2/14 -- “Arenas” Edition [Update 9/15/14]

VPV85 I agree that Rumble had never intended for the prizes to be attainable. They simply didn’t want to use the boring alternative of putting it up for sale. This way the premium players get a good game out of it and borderline spenders might get frustrated enough to sink in some money for a chance.

What I think you’re getting at is that there is no viable consolation prize for us cheapos. There are only 2 prizes worth winning. Both involve money. Everything else is not worth the effort. I believe it has already been mentioned, everything other than the two artifact prizes are considerably weaker than what we already have.

That’s the point. It’s a premium event. The consolation prize (if you can call it that) are the gems and jewels. I find those useful. 30 gems a day and eventually you can buy some inventory slots or save up to buy an item.

Topic: KingsRoad / [RELOADED]: Rumble's Ten Steps to Pay2Win

I really think this isn’t a problem of P2W per se. If you have played some of the Chinese crap out there you will know what greed looks like.

Rumble, from a 3rd person perspective what I see here is a rubber back-bone problem. You’re letting aggressive players push you into making compromises (e.g. guaranteed artifact event, guaranteed elite event). Artifact was the biggest thing in game, then overnight everybody and his uncle had a full suit. Then you had to truck out Elite because suddenly Artifact wasn’t bad-ass enough. And now people are regularly scoring full suits.

And really all this wasn’t even necessary. All you had to do was fix the crazy Random Number Generator you’ve got so that crappy 1 or 2 dragonstone drops didn’t happen ALL the time.

Letting players affect your original power progression plan makes you look inconsistent. Letting noisy players emotionally manipulate you with accusations of P2W will just make their next complaint even noiser. You know what they say about paying the Danegeld.

You’re rubberbanding back and forth in a cycle of giving up compromises, free players become OP, nerf,whine,compromise — rinse and repeat.

Topic: Wartune / astral:ruthlessness

I use it when I need to cross a particularly tough round in ToK and I’m just a little bit short of the required dmg to kill a shadow. A few tries later, I get lucky enough. I think it doesn’t get shut down by Guardian Angel.

Are we looking at the same soul engraving necro thread?

How do you count 10? Because I only see 3 posts in reply. One reply is caustic, but that’s just the way he is. The other two seem ok to me.

Topic: Wartune / Mage equipment question

Is the 50L set really that strong though? Don’t you need to be carried for most of the long journey from 50L to 70L? 70L is a very long trip …. I’m still on it.

I’m doing LLNM with 60L and while I generally don’t object to carrying one or two people randomly, I would certainly not want to keep getting sponged on.

The reality is that 50L – 70L is not for everyone. It’s difficult enough to get people to run LLNM even when everyone carries his weight. A sponger …well people will take one look at dat BR and kick you out of the room without comment.

No. Unless you have compromising pictures of a high-br player to do some blackmail, the I think the 55-60-70 route is more realistic in terms of viability.

Please stop crying about weak players getting their own back at strong players. It’s the weak player’s fault for being able to do so but T2 for implementing this system in the first place.

Topic: Wartune / Mage equipment question

I haven’t seen many people bother with PVE until the 60 set (where they have no choice).

My advice is to take the 55 PVP and upgrade to 60 PVE.

Who’s claiming the moral high ground? All we’re saying is : Go cry me an river. These tactics were developed in response to people harrassing weak players. I doubt they were invented to troll strong players for no good reason.

Topic: Wartune / i Have a question.

A good portion of it was vouchers. I never reset my skills at all. But BB gain’s not too bad daily, something between 20 – 30 daily.

Topic: Wartune / i Have a question.

Seriously? I think BBs are far more liquid than the voucher system. The moment the BB system was implemented I maxxed out my farm and I never have problems with backpack space again. And I could finally buy a pair of wings. Get my transposers ….

Why would you need to reset your skills if you have double skills? Or plan well for that matter?

Yeah I get that the bb system is more expensive (I am a free player), but I sure as heck wouldnt want to go back to vouchers.

Topic: Wartune / i Have a question.

No worries now right? Locky regained his sanity and is going to quit.

The comparison with walmart is slightly off. They sell actual products, you buy a lock you have a lock.
If you use the walmart analogy, you paid money for something which you don’t get to keep.

Walmart will charge the maximum they can get away with, same as everybody else. They don’t raise prices because customers will go to someplace else to do their shopping. But they ARE free to charge 10,000 dollars for a lock.

Here you pay for a service. (or disservice, considering how as these guys are slightly less responsive than my pet rock). The correct comparison is Norton bleeding anti-virus. They charge you for an anti-virus program that shuts down if you don’t continue the service and bark reminders everyday to renew your subscription.

Topic: Wartune / Back Tracking in MPDs

You know what, I’ld rather they put in Autoloot as an option rather than Autoreject …

In any case putting autoloot will not significantly improve the rate at which people make their new equipment. Most people only rarely fail to get their drop(for whatever reason). The major holdup is usually the lack of people to do MPDs and the over reliance of archers on the higher MDs.

I’m suggesting Autoloot only because a) it’s consistent and b) it makes gameplay less stressful if you have a blanket to catch you.

I agree with KS the one run is an improvement for me because the drop is not random and we get 10 each run. Saves me from running the same MPD 3 times.

But it’s sort of inconsistent, the last boss is autoloot.

Topic: Wartune / Back Tracking in MPDs

We shouldnt have to go click on a chest to get a boss drop. Why on earth would we NOT want a drop? It should follow the format of the last boss, automatic into your inventory.

Topic: Wartune / Jewel Hunt

Vertical stacks usually work better for me. When I get a screen where it’s full of potential triples or quads, I’ll usually call a friend. 3 out of 4 times, the whole screen will blow up giving high combo and much loot.

Topic: Wartune / Back Tracking in MPDs

In the earlier dungeons (like void) you could go back to the previous map if you missed collecting drops. But in dungeons like Lich’s lair you couldn’t do that anymore.

(T W T) … I missed collecting 2nd boss drop from LL NM and I’m still in paaaaain….
