    Way to go with screwing up Rufus and the Reckonin. Giving body shots to it was lame. Perhaps one on the weakest characters already and you guys just made him worse not better.
    Totally disappointed. In solo missions he is completely useless. It's bad enough you have to get pretty close with him and now that you've taken the only good trait he had away you have pretty much made him a useless add on.

    That's the normal process @ixxi. You should be able to easily beat walkers +3 or +4 from your level. In some cases you can beat level 30 walkers with the right setup. Good luck.

    @Teeceezy: I still think a nice way to restore some of the reason many of us paid for this is to treat the Reckonin as non-ranged and thus take away the armor-based bodyshots. It would be a bit like a ranged version of the Bruiser charge attack in that it would also be effective on armored Zs, but is also balanced by the fact you don't get stuns with it.

    I find this thread very entertaining... how people are upset that a bug was fixed yet try to argue because they spent money, the bug should remain...

    @clstallings you can use the reckonin' weapon with all your assualt survivors, not just the basically useless Rufus. Good luck.

    Thanks for all the great FREE stuff and special EVENT weekends. I've never found a game more generous.

    No, they're arguing that if they bought it because they thought this 'bug' was a feature, then they should be able to get their money back.

    When I got Rufus and the reckoning I was like "this is going to be fun!" and it was. For a day or so. I think it's a level 9. My Rufus is level 11. So we had to leave "the reckoning" behind. But I still hold on to it. I think this should be Rufus' main weapon. As he rises in levels, so should "the reckoning". I have 2 other characters in that class with better numbers. And Rufus its supposed to be a hero. Ok, my workshop is only at 7. And it'll probably go up once I get it up 10 or 11. But how long will that take? Come on guys. You've got us all hooked. Now show some love so we can have some fun with this weapon. Just saying..........

    There are lots of examples of things that make no sense in game.. but this one is actually easy to explain...

    A walker only dies due to a headshot... if a "bomb" hits the torso but didn't damage the head or legs... the walker will keep coming after you... but remember the weapon doesn't really explode... you only get covered in fire....

    Yes he is, but since he's the messenger, he should be able to answer our questions. It's not like the head of NG will answer us directly. It's a pattern, we know it. And the question is how long they think they can do it without losing spenders, my trust is gone and I haven't been playing this game that long. The greed is becoming more and more visual and they're not able to deal with it. This game will die with the show, it's NG's choice if they want to die with it, or long before.

    Or maybe they can just offer some KY when they get ready to screw us next time....

    > Today (Tuesday 1/3) we implemented a fix to the Reckonin’ weapon. Thanks to reports from the community we were able to pinpoint an issue in which the weapon did not cause any body shots, even when attacking an enemy of a level way above the levels of the attacker. This was a bug that was never intended to be in the game and was one that was deemed important to fix as soon as possible in order to keep the game balanced and fair for everyone. This fix brings the Reckonin’ back in line with the body shot logic of all other weapons.

    It's simple,.. The game has been on a steady decline ever since some Muppet at NG made shteevie in charge,.. And it will continue to do so until shteevie resigns or gets sacked,.. There new policy seems to be greed,nerf,greed,nerf,greed,nerf some more,.. They talk about balance,.. The only balancing being done is ngs bank accounts,.. They don't give a flying shit about veteran gamers and are all about fleecing the new players that flock in by there thousands everyday,..

    This post will be removed,.. I will be banned,.. But I don't fecking care anymore,.. Shteevie you are a cancer,.. A cancer that's ripping the heart and soul out this once great game,.. Yes son,.. You should be ashamed of yourself,. Your money grabbing antics and your nerf the fuck attitude,.. CANCER,.. That's your legacy,...shteevie,.. Relish in it,..

    Drops mic,... Raises middle finger,... Ban away bitches,..

    On a lighter side, if anyone care where the term Molotov Cocktail came from:


    The name "Molotov cocktail" was coined by the Finns during the Winter War.[1] The name was an insulting reference to Soviet foreign minister Vyacheslav Molotov, who was one of the architects of the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact signed in late August 1939. The pact with Nazi Germany was widely mocked by the Finns, as was much of the propaganda Molotov produced to accompany the pact, including his declaration on Soviet state radio that bombing missions over Finland were actually airborne humanitarian food deliveries for their starving neighbours. The Finns sarcastically dubbed the Soviet cluster bombs "Molotov bread baskets" in reference to Molotov's propaganda broadcasts.[2] When the hand-held bottle firebomb was developed to attack Soviet tanks, the Finns called it the "Molotov cocktail", as "a drink to go with the food".[3]


    I know this does not help, but neither does taking this out on each other or Teeceezy.

    I am new to the fourm, but i have 1 google and 1 apple account i have played since day 3. I am no means a free to play , nor would I say I am "Daddy " Warbucks.

    I have read lots of post, and since reading and joining I have spent a lot less on gear than I have in the past.After all no one is making me spend the money. I also understand the feelings " Nerf, Bug Fix , etc. etc. " call it what you want.
    It all boils down to 1 simple rule.
    I call it the Golden Rule

    NG has the Gold so they get to make the Rule.

    Either play by the rule or stop feeding the machine.

    Long time, no see Rick. Hope the new year is going well. The big question I have in all of this is why? Even if we accept the agreement that ng is just fixing unintended behavior, so what? It doesn't cost them money if people can rack up 500 stars vs 400. It doesn't cost them anything if players can complete episode 14-6 on Nightmare. So why does NG continually make changes that only costs them ill-will from their customers and actual money in the form of refunds? Especially as it applies to weapons, if there is a behavior that is unintended, make the fix going forward. Eventually the weapons will be many levels lower than the survivors so it won't be useful. To put it another way, what harm is done by a no body-shot Reckonin', or stacked Luck and Dodge, or Rick's Silenced pistol? Is there some weird cost structure to maintaining the game that NG has to pay based on the total number of stars earned in a challenge?

    @SPC_TORRES

    NG also have to play by the rules,... Hence the sudden increase in apples refund office,.. Especially in the European market,.. They very well may have the gold,.. But my apple refund call is the key that opens the door to take back my gold,... And every refund request to Apple is a little black marker on NG games credibility within that App Store,.
    Wheather youv played from day one or just joined,.. Point of purchase speaks loader than than ngs support,..or yours for that matter

    @Teeceezy this kind of thing has happened so often with weapon bundles (the spear having less damage, ricks pistol nerfed silence, all the bundles just before 2.2 with "100%" interupt). Whether these are mistakes or intentional it would go along way in restoring your players faith in your company simply by REFUNDING the money.
    Apple is going to refund it which means you are refunding it so why not refund it yourselves and get some trust and faith back.
    P.s I didn't buy the bundle because i didn't know about the no body shots as I've never played with the weapon didn't even buy the rare one in shop

    I'm just interested in seeing people's successes in getting refunds with the Reckonin' since a lot of people feel as though we have been severely ripped off today. Share your successes/failures and whether you have Apple/Google below!
  • sborgsborg Member Posts: 581
    Can't speak to the Reckonin' yet, but a previous experience in getting a refund from Google Play showed my that a phone call would get immediate results. When I first tried to submit a complaint on the website, the response was "not our problem". That's when I called and got a refund within minutes.

    May I suggest you ask @SlickRick to post his advice in here about how best to go for a refund,.. Might help you get more traffic in too :smile:
