    Sounds interesting. Any chance to restore weekly - half weekly ;) guilds rewards?
    Guilds leaderboards will be wiped?? Should be...

    Sounds interesting.

    A steeper difficulty grade as missions progress... it will make capping out in 3-4 days a lot easier to do I suppose, but I wonder what the new average star goal will be per challenge.

    Also, lower gas cost? Awesome!

    Hmm, I was kinda enjoying weekend 'rest' from challenges... I hope doing it every day won't get monotonous quickly

    I know it's useless to ask, but was there any reason for the change? Will there be separate leader boards for them?
    Will it help avoid releases showing up mid-challenge?
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    In my opinion it is good change.
    Some ppl hit high tiers soon and can't go forward. Lvl 20 walkers ect and have to wait till Sunday. Now it won't be like that. There will be no time for boring.
    Rewards will be redone, gas decreased. It helps to put more dynamic ino game.
    I think positive about these changes.

    I like most of posted changes, depending on how they are implemented.

    One concern I have is no day off during the week to do other things besides challenges.

    My other concern is there is only 1 hour between challenges. Combined with the new rule that guild rosters must be finalized before the challenge starts, changing players between challenges could be tricky.

    No gap is a bad idea when we supposed to play the rest of your game.

    Also no leaderboard wipe mention, you have to wipe them, sure the guild will correct itself, however the total lifetime stars a guild has earned and the individual player leaderboards will remain a joke.

    Also props for communicating a massive change like this before doing it anyway. (Just in case that was sarcasm btw)

    Ah yes @Smokin_Joe_Blow. Thanks for pointing that out. Edited the announcement: The first 20 players to contribute stars during a challenge will have them counted towards the total. It does however still stand that if you have 20 members contribute stars, you won't be able to get more from extra players during that same challenge.

    @Teeceezy excellent change.
    thanks for the update!

    Sounds like great change. Grinding through all those low lvls for couple days was a bit boring. Now it will be quicker to get to where the real game begins.
    I will still miss day off though. Why not make it 3 days challenges with day off rather than one 3 day one 4 day

    Also quicker for where the challenge begins to end.

    Thank you for the updates and changes.
  • MilessMiless Member Posts: 129
    If it's not broken don't fix it... That being said one challenge per week with the weekend off to actually play the game and enjoy weekend events and live life a bit was nice... This will most likely get players tired of guild playing and take some joy away from gameplay....I really hope there will be two leaderboard so guilds have an option...@Teeceezy we thank you and NG for the speedy fix but please make it two leaderboard for challenges, it will provide for a more enjoyable gameplay for your loyal customers... Thank you for your time and consideration

    Great news, now i can use those tomatoes to upgrade other structures in my camp instead of hoarding tomatoes for council upgrade.

    Yep. Good decision. Still few weeks until new update with council arrive.

    About making the 2 challenges 2 or 3 days each, so we have a little downtime between the two ?

    Two leaderboards is silly. Just wait until you play it to make your statements.

    "The new challenge event will start only after all players have updated to the new build."

    All players in the guild?

    no, they will force you to update to play by tomorrow.
    I have updated already and am excited for new schtuff!

    @ant no, but that would be server side and not connected to the client update.
