Has there recently been changes to salvage points gain from salvaging? Getting 2 from *’s then the usual 3.

SP cost of 1* unit went down from 3 to 2, but from 2*+ went way, way up.

Please, do this! Little effort for you – big joy for us!

They’re actually not “little effort” for us, but yeah we really enjoyed it too and are hoping to do another one soon!

Topic: General / [TO DEVS] MM postmortem from veteran player

We’ve come to the same conclusion. Our changes to matchmaking for next Brawl will be aimed at making top-ranked fights harder, and lower-ranked fights easier than they were in this event.

Groovy. If I haven’t said it lately, thanks for the updates.

Lots more where that came from :) Rud is working on some much more challenging events right now.

Topic: General / [To Dev's] Tartarus Box

It was unintentional that the box progress was carried over, yes. However we obviously didn’t want to just change it mid-release. The rest of the retro boxes this week should be correct.

I noticed the tartarus box is in the store. It has Thunder crag in it. I already have 1 copy, so I figured I would try my 20% luck at getting a second thunder crag (as first box purchases have always been epic). To my surprise I got a rare card, Speculus. And it shows two copies of the Speculus bought eventho I only purchased 1 card (I only had 69 WB).

Is this a bug? If you guys changed the ‘first buy is epic card’ rule you could atleast have given a notification…

Anyone else noticed this happening?

Edit: it shows 2x speculus bought but I only have 1 in inventory…

So “first epic” rule is officialy void? Good to know.

It’s only “void” if you’ve claimed cards from this box when it came out before.

Topic: General / [To Dev's] Tartarus Box

This box carried over completion from the last time it was released. If you only have 1 in your inventory, the other you received was probably salvaged when this box came out months ago.

We are re-releasing some other boxes this month and we will be resetting the completion for those, as opposed to today’s release.

FF7 was awesome. Check out Chrono Trigger too – super replayable, great story.

Topic: General / [Aleye] Balance Enfeeble - Revised

Originally posted by validname1:

Hope so! I always assumed Enfeeble was BT’s Rally (like Leech was its Heal).

Unfortunately with the Evade Enfeeble is a “Worse Rally” most of the time. More playable Inhibit would go a long way toward helping that. (Ion was awesome just too random to grab!)

We’re aiming for Overload to be a gentle (not mind-exploding) shift away from everything-needs-Evade in the meta.

Topic: General / [Aleye] Balance Enfeeble - Revised

The wholesale change of a skill that has been out for ages would be an abrupt and unpredictable change. It may have effects that you wouldn’t like. We’re not changing it at this point. However, as described in several other threads, we are planning on introducing another skill that should help counter protect AND potentially synergize well with enfeeble.

Oh fine I’ll see about adding a dragon card ;)

Topic: General / [TO DEV] BRAWL PUNISHES BEGINNERS

I have a day old account and getting a free epic and silver pack for losing 50 times and winning twice is a significant boost. Not to mention all the free gold. +50 every loss. NO COMPLAINTS. THIS IS HEAVEN FOR STARTERS.

Matchmaking could be made easier for new players, but the above is definitely true. New players can get a huge boost from the Brawls just from a big string of losses :) It’s a little silly, and yeah we should make sure that new players are able to win more than they do, but in no way do brawls “punish” beginners.

Topic: General / How can stars be made useful?

Once we start down that path of adding little rewards to every number that goes up, it ends up diluting the other rewards. We’ve gone down that path before and we don’t want to do the same thing again. We’d rather focus on the core rewards.

Topic: General / [Aleye] Balance Enfeeble - Revised

Changing an existing skill would have way too dramatic of an effect on the meta. I don’t think we’d want to risk it. Maybe down the road we could try a battleground effect where enfeeble acts this way :)

It’s just a vanity stat to show progression through the campaign. We can hide it if its bothering you :)

Please tell me the people who already spent promotion points unlocking the existing legendary commanders don’t get screwed by this, while also making it so newer players don’t have to grind forever to unlock them.

This is why we I mentioned revamping the Commander system a bit. The current system doesn’t allow for easy expansions to the Commander pool.

Sorry for the account issues, Bumboks. I’ve contacted our support team and we will take another look early next week. I’ll do my best to make sure this gets solved by the end of Monday :)

Any estimate (hell even ballpark a number) on when we can expect this?

Very exciting! I am hoping for a wave of commanders to promote mono faction decks!!! : ))

Naw can’t give an estimate. Probably after Raids.

I would recommend not hanging around 24 stamina. It’s not going to improve your matchmaking.

Brawl energy point refund? Lost 2 through this hick-up

How’d you lose energy points? If you disconnect, you will rejoin the battle on refresh.
