The Change Aftermath! (in General)

Little Anthony April 3 2008 5:47 PM EDT

This is a great change in my opinion. Jonathan has surprised me with his ability to solve the USD problem. It could be dangerous however, that one day i won't be able to spend on anything else I need be cause i am a mage. What would I do with all the extra cb2 i earn per fight? Nothing! I predict that the USD/Cb2 shall fall hard within days. Probably to $1/mil, almost not worth it anymore.
There will be less multi (Yay) simply because there is no point to click so hard for $1 (hahaha). All the base items will increase in price and all the new players will save for a long time before they can own anything. Sure Rental is still available.
I will still provide renaming and supportership service but probably 5 times more expensive than before (due to the falling of USD). So about 10millions now for supportership? :P

This also creates an interesting issue with the NCB. If you decide to start a fresh one, you won't be able to fit your previously well sized gear on your new character. Thus, rentals of smaller items could prove to be a valuable market.

I don't think it will drop that much LA. There will still be things to spend money on, but at a slower rate, or you will have to train a stat to allow for more encumberance to be able to add to your equip. You just have to start thinking on a different level now is all.

Sorry LA, I just can't hold in the laughter anymore. Hearing you talk about how Jon solved the USD problem... um, how much USD have you pumped into this game? I'm thinking... a lot? You just got lucky that the changes didn't hit "your" usd investments (I guess. I honestly can't say I've paid enough attention to know where you put your USD, just that you've been throwing it around in the forums). Enjoy your time in the sun.

I'm pretty sure he sunk most of it into purchasing minions. So he pretty much didn't have a choice at that level. Unless he wanted to wait a year to purchase one, then wait another year...etc

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] April 3 2008 5:59 PM EDT

Perhaps LD's views on the solving of the "USD problem" are informed somewhat by the price he wants to pay for CB$.

Shouldn't this be in FS/WTB anyway?

Sadly this change does mean that in order to run a multi minion tank team of any significance you need to hire minions late in your run... meaning LOTS of $US.

LA thinks its a good change now... but wait till evasion gets fixed properly then we will see what he says about it.

Ulord[NK] April 3 2008 6:16 PM EDT

Most characters under 6/20 does not have a problem with this encumbrance nonsense, unless you are a tank. Weapon allowance is kinda redundant now. The hardest hit ones would be USD spenders, or should I say Freed. Basically, equipment growth needs to be planned and steady even after 6/20 now...

QBRanger April 3 2008 6:32 PM EDT

Great change?

A 4 minion character trying to be a tank has no chance to use both a melee and missle weapon.

Sometimes the cure is worse then the disease.

I love that it's a multi minion 'nerf'. ;)

Who cares? CB is always awesome, lol

Mikel April 3 2008 10:52 PM EDT

Any more comments now LA, since evasion has been fixed?

lostling April 3 2008 10:58 PM EDT

i was expecting a tap on the head for evasion... but this is like a sledge hammer lol... ah well tanks got one in the head too

Last Gasp April 3 2008 11:02 PM EDT

Yup... lost 4 from my playlist today ... added one before Evasion was nerfed... but lost that one back... fun... new strategy I suppose.

Little Anthony April 3 2008 11:04 PM EDT

Any more comments now LA, since evasion has been fixed?

Comment: it has been a fun few hours. I enjoyed it fully while it last.

lostling April 3 2008 11:07 PM EDT

at least the top is being reshuffled... interested to see how things turn out *watches from the sidelines*

lostling April 3 2008 11:21 PM EDT

hmm the USD sell out has begun... :) im predicting 4USD/mill before this is done

Mikel April 3 2008 11:23 PM EDT

4:1.... I'm not going to buy unless it's 1:1.

lostling April 3 2008 11:27 PM EDT

doubt it will reach 1 to 1 the way things are going... probably going to stabalize around 3 to 1 at least...

Mikel April 3 2008 11:32 PM EDT

I don't think it's going to sell that well.
I just went from 1.5 mil cb2 to 45mil on hand from knocking everything down to base that I don't need.
And I still have more to go if I want to, but I like to keep an extra set or two of some top Mage/Wall/Tank/Enchanter Gear handy in case I want to switch up some items.

chuck1234 April 3 2008 11:34 PM EDT

I've already collected almost 20 mil CBD spare cash from disenchanting irrelevant stuff....most other folk will catch on to this asap....i'll say unless people are really desperate there won't be any desperate WTB for, maybe LA is right it'll be 1:1 1 mil CBD for 1 USD....
