Petition to Jon: RE AoJ (in General)

QBRanger March 13 2009 12:01 PM EDT

Please, pretty please, with sugar and a cherry on top:

Make the AoJ work like the AoI and HoC.

That is give it 100% effect all the time.

Familiar based teams are losing the extra/bonus hp that the AoF would give.

DD familiars are losing the extra DD levels.

I think we can all accept and understand that, given the power the AoF gave familiar based teams.

Yes, the skill slot is nice, esp for the JKF and BL. However it is not as nice as the extra hp/DD levels for the other familiars.

However, for people to successfully run a strategy, they need to have 1.0 junction.

I would ask all the AoJ's be +10 like the AoI giving 1.0 junction.

If you want to introduce a new item with a random non-upgradeable +, please do it with something non essential for a bulk load of strategies, especially those already on the NCB path of growth.

Please do this changes ASAP so those with familiars can get back to a semi normal fightlist and continue on their growth.

I ask this to help CB as a whole, not for selfish reasons as I can buy one with USD if I really wanted to. Others in CB are not as fortunate.

I would ask those that agree to please sign below:

Thanks in advance for your time.

I agree. ;)

First 'petition' thread I think I've seen on CB. Usually they get locked as a matter of course. :P

Wasp March 13 2009 12:08 PM EDT

Signed. Looks like my NCB run just ended prematurely

or make it upgradeable (forgeable only!)

It is no secret that I have used USD to suppliment my CB gameplay. I have never minded doing so with something I enjoy. I am however among a FEW who has this opportunity/ability. I agree with QBRanger in this.


kronopolous March 13 2009 12:43 PM EDT

absolutely signed

Guardian March 13 2009 12:43 PM EDT

give us 100 % efect!


QBRanger March 13 2009 12:45 PM EDT

Even forgeable only is ok,

however realize that +10 is only 1.5M NW and it can be forged that high in less then a day.

However this should keep forgers busy, perhaps getting a premium for faster/priority service!!!

Steve G March 13 2009 12:51 PM EDT

signed, AoJs that are not at least +8 have no reason to exist whatsoever

DoS March 13 2009 12:59 PM EDT


Andy March 13 2009 1:01 PM EDT

Either forgeable or +10.. I wouldn't mind either ^^


Fatil1ty March 13 2009 1:50 PM EDT

can't believe this change...

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- March 13 2009 1:52 PM EDT

I'm going to have to side with the entire community.

Sickone March 13 2009 2:20 PM EDT

Either all +10 from the start, or make them upgradeable to +10.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] March 13 2009 2:30 PM EDT

Well now that some people have already spent 7M dollars on one, it would hardly fair to do this and destroy the market for them and decrease the prices greatly. Although I'd be ok with a solution that would satisfy everyone and make them more affordable. Like maybe if Jon refunded money or something, I don't know now I'm just talking crazy. But, here's my signature

QBRanger March 13 2009 2:31 PM EDT

My hope would be that all the amulets would be taken out of auction, money refunded and new +10 amulets put in auctions with short time limits, like 25 for 6 hour, 25 for 12 hours, 25 for 18 hours and 25 for 24 hours.

To let people in different time zones each have a chance.

However, I know it is a pipe dream.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] March 13 2009 2:34 PM EDT

That too is what I thought would be the best solution Ranger, but I thought it seemed a little too far fetched. Maybe not though.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 13 2009 2:39 PM EDT

"bid early lose money" is a classic CB truth... it'll suck, but not as bad as NOT fixing the problem


QBsutekh137 March 13 2009 2:42 PM EDT

I agree, but if you are going to do that, better do it before all these auctions end. Otherwise, a lot of folks are just out a lot of cash for no reason, and that wouldn't exactly be fair either. I know spending a ton of money is a choice, but it isn't really a choice when there are so few useful AoJs and Junction got automatically untrained and removed. We have to act based upon current situations, so if I do get an AoJ for 8 million and it gets converted to a constant-effect amulet in a few days, I want that money back.

Make them upgradeable, make it pricey and then you can achieve the CB cash drain that a lot of people are talking about (if that is actually a goal). The fact that a lot of people's strats are upset due to this release should justify that the AoJ should be a supporter item. This is the biggest stir up I have ever seen in this game so far with an item being released, and I agree completely with the petition.


Lord Bob March 13 2009 3:01 PM EDT

"And if you do not sign this petition,
I will make sure that button NEVER gets undone :)"

That's good enough for me.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] March 13 2009 3:02 PM EDT

I think Jon should have warned you guys. Like "Hey I'm getting ready to drop Fat Man and Little Boy, better take cover." LOL

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] March 13 2009 3:07 PM EDT

What Button?

Oh that one....

It'll go in time anyway. And it's the wait that's the best part!

QBJohnnywas March 13 2009 3:10 PM EDT

Hate the waiting. Teeth. That's the thing.

ScY March 13 2009 4:35 PM EDT


If that damn button doesnt come off soon, I'm gonna junction myself to a time bomb. Then we'll see who is really playing the waiting game xD. (Joking of course, no bombs were hurt in the production of this joke)

QBRanger March 13 2009 4:37 PM EDT

Petition over.

We did it!!!

Made a difference!!!

Thanks to all!!!

ScY March 13 2009 4:38 PM EDT

Hm... now about those buttons....

QBRanger March 13 2009 4:39 PM EDT

Just you wait.

However it may be at another website, PG stuff you know.

Lord Bob March 13 2009 4:57 PM EDT

Just make sure you send me the link.

"However it may be at another website, PG stuff you know."

Any thing goes over there... bouncy bouncy...
