Save your Badge Fragments and Components - Balance Update is coming!

KazKaz Member Posts: 1,423
Hey everyone!

We are currently working on a balance update that will probably be applied in the game in the next couple of weeks. One of the things that we have already defined is that if you use all Legendary components, you will have 100% chance of getting a Legendary badge. Of course, we are also decreasing the number of components and badge fragments you normally find after missions. But we are still going to have components events and those will be the best time to get them.

Anyway, there's a lot more stuff to come (including player's requests) and we are still testing some of the changes, but I'll be sharing the details with our content creators so it can be shared with you guys before the actual update. One thing that I can also tell you (because I believe it'll be the following question) is that we are NOT going to have a council upgrade together with this balance update.

But long story short is... save your components for now! :)

Thanks for reading!

    This is a welcome change! The chances of finding a legendary frag is rare as it is but if it has to be lowered to guarantee a legendary badge I'd be happy to take the hit.

    So I am hearing this:
    Fewer drops, 100% 5* badge results from all 5* stuff. Just less likely to find it.
    Then I think, well, I'll have fewer 4* results, so I'll wind up with maybe the same amount of 5* badges / month, but less 4* badges per month.
    @Kaz is that what your intention is for this change? If so, I would like to vote against changing it at all. Or post a poll. That sounds like a bad idea.

    @Kaz

    Is the 100% chance of success only for the Legendary frags\comps or at all levels?

    Why nerf something so hard and unusual to get already.
    If u really care about the players and want to balance the game just set the 100% chances or increase the % to get legendary badge with all legendary components, its unfair be able to craft 1 badge like in 2 months and get a epic one.

    With the nerf part, I don't see anything other than a strategy to sell more badge bundles to be honest. I'm not buying this "balance" thing.

    In other words you are saying, "hey we still have badge event where you can BUY gold and get those 5k gold packs! That gives you 2 guaranteed gold pieces!!! Yay look how generous we are to you all"!

    While you're making these changes, I don't suppose you could get rid of the Critical Damage badges and the +number badges? Both of those are pretty useless. I can just see myself crafting with all legendary and getting a +800 critical damage. Ugh.

    @bladgier Yes because Ng should see an increase in super component crate purchases. Players could get a few more leg badges too especially if they have been hoarding for a while so yeah... both parties should be happy

    Agreed 100% about flat value badges. I hope all flat value badges get converted to % badges because the scaling gets worse the higher your player level.

    I have to disagree about Critical Damage badges. How do you not find them useful? My Shooters hit 50k damage and can one-shot level 32 fatties because of badges.

    I'd rather see a guaranteed legendary badge event occasionally then see the horrible drop rate of frag/components go down even more.

    I'm betting this 100% guaranteed legend badge comes with a 90% chance of crafting flat rate crit damage badges. Pffft.

    So for the update gift can you give everyone a legendary fragment and 4 components. That shouldn't really break the bank.

    Edit: just realized as soon as I posted that's not likely since you have to be a certain council level to get components :( oh well then

    At the last component event, the chances of getting badge fragments and components from gold after mission crates were the same as usual (have not been increased). @Kaz, are you going to balance that?

    Most likely not, so the event and the component boxes will become more valuable after that balance changes.

    It's possible to give a different gift to a player if they don't have the scavenger building in their camp, so that`s actually an interesting idea and we'll keep that in mind. :)

    And I understand your concerns about the rare item becoming rarer, but don't worry. We'll keep monitoring it after the change to make sure it doesn't turn into a bad experience.

    @Kaz the company has been pretty bad at monitoring, maybe you all get the numbers, but you don't ever change things for the better, eventually players get used to the nerfs, then you all do some dumb shit like this. But I have no doubt some brain busting ideal will follow this to make players forget about this.

    This is so see thru it's unbelievable! NG ceo must be short of funds for his new yacht. All this 'balancing' is aimed at is selling more gold for us to buy component crates. Well NG you can expect zilch from me. I have bought bundles regularly but now I am becoming ftp.
    You treat your customers like a cash cow.
