    Trooper Store Limits... the Final Nail in the Coffin...

    I am so angry right now... You are killing what this game ended up creating... a community...

    If this is the response to it takes too long too play all our Troopers then I don't want it! You are taking Troopers out of the equation and also not letting us decide what to do with our earnings. Weekly limits for the Arena Store make sense as the Arena system is based on a weekly competition but Trooper Store should not be impacted.

    In the early part of this year you teased that Trooper Eddie would be available from Trooper points so a few of us have stopped spending Trooper Badges and started collecting with the occasional spend on a bunch of special coloured souls when a new character of that class was introduced. This system makes sure that we cannot do that anymore... Leave it up to us to decide when to spend!

    Before these limits kick in, please tell us how much we need for Trooper Eddie and when it will be released you cannot ask us to spend all we have earned and then flash a Trooper Eddie option which will take months to gather. We have already spent the months! You did it with the Eternal Soul for those who were lucky enough to be part of the PVP Beta do it again for those who have been there since Day 1. And please let us decide at least in the Trooper store on how to dispose of our badges as this is part of our strategies.

    I just don't get all the constraints that you guys are imposing on us lately, what is going on... look at all the old timers leaving... don't you read the signs???

    We are throwing amazing suggestions after amazing suggestions in these forums and all we get in return is silence and nerfs... Pretty interesting to nerf a store when nerving characters is not enough anymore...

    To be fair, you have immense allies with us here and you should use us. We understand you need to make money and we are for this too but be fair to us please.

    Events seem to be the flavour of the season but what would be very appreciated is for you to post a timeline of upcoming events so we can plan our spending accordingly, how many players spent all their ironite on BNW Souls to find out that MUR was just the week after and could not participate...

    Be transparent, communicate and help us plan... As Iron Maiden say there is a "Greater Good" and this one will benefit you as well, trust me!

    “The first time someone calls you a horse you punch him in the nose, the second time someone calls you a horse you call him a jerk, but the third time someone calls you a horse, well then perhaps it's time to go shopping for a saddle." Well I feel i should go back to stable now...

    I think it's becoming pretty clear that they just don't care to listen to their playerbase anymore.
    I don't get how they ended up with another so bad decision, just when you think that it can't get any worse..

    Now I am cold but a ghost lives in my veins,
    Silent the terror that reigned-marbled in stone
    Shell of a man God preserved-a thousand ages
    But open the gates of my hell-I will strike from the grave.

    The writing is on the wall for us Patrice. We just don't wish to read it.

    I felt the exact same way about the changes to the store. NF does not want us to hoard. Use our resources to spend real money with no return. All they have to do is fix the Trooper system...

    i get your anger guys, i felt the same, but let's see how this will work out first. sounds interesting for me at least. if they add some eternity frags to the store or some trooper eddie frags that could be cool.

    call me an optimist, but this would be a good change. ofc it's much more likely that we might see some screw ups, but well who knows
    donslauki-3210 i never missed to use a trooper! if you are a daily player, you can send me a PM i might kick some inactives for you :-)

    What you see is not real, those who know will not tell
    All is lost sold your souls to this brave new world

    Their lack of info is pathetic as always! Don't really care if I blew all my trooper badges on skill shards cuz I'd only want Trooper Eddie if he's good in arena & that's a fuckin joke right now!!! As far as bug fixes...don't believe everything u read!

    Warning, a lot of words will follow. Dunno either if i should have posted elsewhere, but here goes

    Dunno what to make of this, i usually don't play mobile games apart from the ocationally puzzle/brain game or such. To me, the problem is that this is an Iron Maiden themed game, and i guess the majority of players are playing cause they are IM fans. There are probably some suits sitting in the back, focusing only on the money and not caring one (sh)bit about Maiden or their fans. I assume that licensing isn't cheap either, so money is at the center and has to be made.

    The game could just as well have been Disney themed or some random chars from whatever, the mechanics could just as well been used with other figures, and lets face it, the game is easy to complete in a relative short time. Since i became an endgamer, only a few new things have appeared. Arena, sacrifice (not a game...), BNW and various events. None of these would be enough to keep me interested after finishing the game, had it not been for IM and this community.

    Back to the point, if one could see the economics regarding the game, i think that it will show that money doesn't come from endgamers, the big bucks come from new players trying to finsh campaign and advance in the arena, and unless these players are fans, they just finish the game, stop and move on to the next game. Thats what i did with pc/consol-games, after i finished a game i almost never played that one again.

    What the suits apparently didn't took into account is that the hard rock/metal community see themselves as one big (worldwide) family, especially fans of Iron Maiden, and we don't take crap from noone, especially people that try to f*** us over again and again. To them (suits), endgames are only used to figure out where to nerf next, since there (apparently) is no code check or quality control whatsoever, and also to target areas where money can be made.

    Don't get me wrong, i'm fully aware that money has to be made, but i think this is the wrong approach.

    Finally (phew...), a saying in my own language, i can't translate it, maybe someone can: "Der er for langt mellem snapsene"

    The game is designed for us to get 17500 badges per week and particularly I am only interested in skillshards ( let's say I am one of those who don't play PVP) , now every 2 weeks I would be able to get only 4 skillshards instead of 7, doesn't look fair to me. And of course I will get a pile of badges (7500 per week) because I don't care about any soul in the trooper store.

    Trooper Shop Updates

    Quote Originally Posted by Patrice-1201 View Post

    Hi guys,

    Just wanted to chime in to explain a few things regarding the reinstating of limits in the Trooper Shop.

    First of all, this is not a change being made in isolation. There are many updates and changes to the game that will be rolling out over the next few months and these limits are just a part of balancing the flow of resources in the economy given those changes. Without getting into too much detail or revealing exact dates, here is a preview of some of the content and features related specifically to this change that we are in the process of developing:

    1. We are in the process of looking at speeding up the use of Troopers, and of playing quests in general, which will increase the speed and ease of earning Trooper Badges.

    2. There are more items coming to the Trooper shop within the next few months, including the long heralded Trooper Soul. Our current plan is to offer a one-time, high cost Trooper Soul as well as the farmable weekly fragment option. The price has not been finalized for this Soul, but generally speaking it should not exceed the cost of using 50 troopers over a 5 week period (i.e. between 40K-to-50K Badges) though this is tentative and could change. In regards to how much heads up you'll have about when to start saving up, we are also going to start advertising what events are planned for the month in the News Feed to give people a better idea of what's to come. In theory, by the time we announce the release of this soul, you should have enough time to save up for at least one pull or at least dramatically shorten the time it will take for it.

    3. With many upcoming events, we are looking for ways to ensure all players have some way of working towards the event rewards outside of just using the ironite or souls they have on hand. To that end there will be many events which will be making more use of all 3 shops in the game in new ways (Arena, Troopers, and Gold Shops). For this to work, we need to make the shops more consistent with each other so that something like unlimited access to rare souls doesn't completely break the economy of the game as it will imbalance the value of various activities and game modes.

    In short, with some of the upcoming changes, you'll still be able to earn the same amount of resources, if not much more, but you won't have to dedicate as much energy and time to things like using Troopers. Instead, via events and upcoming features, there should be more of a perceptible cadence to where you can ideally spend you time to maximize your rewards in the game. Yes, this does mean you can't hoard points to buy souls / shards in bulk, but this is also the reason we are communicating these changes now. If you have large stores of Trooper Badges saved up, you may want to consider spending them now as, outside of the aforementioned Trooper Soul, there won't be much reason to save them.

    Hopefully that helps explain that particular change. Sparton and I will try and be around on the forums today to answer any additional questions regarding this or other updates from the patch preview notes.

    Cheers,

    -Kaz

    Kaz, thank you. All of this sounds great, and the communication is excellent. Love the plans to speed things up with Troopers and farming, love the monthly event overview, and everything makes much more sense now.

    No questions here. Good job. \m/
