Topic: Epic War Saga /
Thanks a lot artlogic.
Jep, leaved some angry thoughts here too.
But it is time for come down now. Redone the 50 levels I lost and I´m now back to level 153 and planing to stay there (like I did before) until the new chapters are released. When I think back, what hit me first when I saw this were not only that I lost 66% of my levels (got 33% back on the next day). No it was the new XP border I have to cross to reach next level. It were 2525 XP with level 50 and the actionpoints of the monsters weren´t nerved (or tweaked) back than.
By choosing to make the speed for leveling this high you made a very innovative game. You can always improve your account a little without much affort. When I think off other onlinegames here, this concept is very unique. On the top of that, you can skill your actionpoints and they are maxed with each new level. This allow you to play in an endless roll and you actionpoints doesn´t need to be that high, my where always my second strongest ability.
But on the shadowside a game with such a highspeed is quickly done. I needed over 3 week (at least) to beat level 66 in tyrant, not that it was that much harder, but the timer doesn´t allow it quicker. here it feels like I was done in 3 days. On the otherhand, when you lost a critical mission (critical because you needed the points to level up) you were out of game. I remember thinking (when the 4 boss was at 90 aktionpoints): "ok what if I lose here, 90×3 min are 4 hours and 30 min) and this was the 4 chapter. How will it be in chapter 10 when the boss has 600 actionpoints? You miss? Wait 30 hour for every try!!!
What I wanne say is a to chickly growing system can quickly go out of proportion.
So what to do about it. I think, after the first rage, you are on a very good way. To take the speed out of leveling from 10 xp to 25xp all two levels, was necessary to get the player levels down and the actionpoints of the monsters too. The tweak of the items make them harder to achieve but also more rare and special. They now are a factor you have to plan with, before (when masterd all the missions) you had at least 15-25 pieces of every item that can be droped.
I was always a huge fan off the epic war series. Keep up the work guys. I think the leveling is still satisfying and thegame has huge pvp potential.
