This is a classic case of "No Good Deed will go Unpunished".NG put out a weapon that they thought people would be interested in buying and bundled it with gold and trade goods to make it more enticing and then put it up for sale. It was discovered that the there was a bug in the code that would have been problematic to fix after the fact but could be remedied by creating a new weapon.What NG could have done was announce that the harpoon gun was always intended to generate threat on a charge attack and that the write up should have mentioned it but didn't and be done with it. In order to keep good will, The Good Deed, they decided instead to give those who purchased the gun another one to replace the one that was sent out with a bug. They are under no obligation to "fix" the bugged version because you can't prove that wasn't the way it was intended to work in the first place.But, sad sacks in the community, feel like they were disadvantaged and "DEMAND" a free version of the broken gun. WTF? At most what NG should do is recreate the bundle with both versions of the gun and put it up for sale in the bundle shop. Those who want to spend the money get 2 just like those who bought the broken one. BTW, this was mentioned by @TWDaddiction above. Under no circumstances does anyone deserve a free version of the broken gun.
Jesus fucking Christ! This is the most ridiculous thread we’ve had since NG gave out 3 free bundles with hundreds of SR (?) tokens which about 200 people managed to take advantage off. People demanding all sort of shit. As for the XP argument. You’ve used your XP on a weapon you will use and keep. If they NG had removed that one and given an non upgraded one then I would agree XP would be required in the compensation. It wasn’t though you’ve got a fully upgraded usable weapon.
Point is you can't tell other people how to feel and belittling their feelings is hardly a respectable ActAnd second point next games could give everyone in the community Max XP and they would lose almost nothing, so every player could upgrade one or two items or one or two troops? That's hardly breaking any economy.So people can throw stones back and forth which which does nothing but damage is a community.Step out of yourselves and have some compassion
The 100% silent harpoon should never be in store again, it is too good.jk
@WellyLuga you played enough to know how it goes. I been burnt by the exact same thing that’s why I bought it anyways. I didn’t expect free but a change
@WellyLuga but at least you didn’t waste all that precious XP.
I didn’t buy it so I don’t deserve any freebies. End of story.
We won't be sending Full XP out, but we're going to run Double XP for kills along with 5-sec equipment upgrade this weekend. This solution might not make everyone happy, but keep in mind that the "half-silent" Winter Harpoon gun is still a powerful weapon that has a decent edge over the regular Harpoon gun, so it is a significant perk. The half-silent Winter Harpoon will also be taken out of circulation, as it was unintended, and it would get quite confusing for a lot of players which is which.
