there needs to be a combination of variability and simplicity. Right now it makes the head hurt and sim trying to sort through the options and potentials and how to build a good dot to play dotball in terms of proposed changes. The fact is the "builds" are still dependent on how Bort has factored the qualities into the forumulas and game. These proposals add too much complexicty while increasing variability. SOmeone pointed out you have too many different things.
Resource points
shopping tokens
bonus tokens
training points
veteran points
equiptment
advanced equipment
and so on.
THere really has to be a way to make it simple yet have variation and even earned levels to satify the RPG geek in bort.


and the one thing that is intuitive - cash - has no value at all to players. this is the part that bugs me the most. just use fraking cash instead of all this token/points mumble jumble.

Everyone is familiar with cash IRL. What's wrong with having it in GLB?

There's zero balance currently in the cash system of GLB, that's the reason it can't be used.

About the adv eqp store, does it still scale based on level?

Will a level 55 dot, who upgraded to this point: "40 bonus tokens = 4 additional items in the store and items do not delete after purchasing", will he have 5 items in his store (1 + 4 additional) or 10 items (6 + 4 additional)?


Yes, it still scales to level.

This is the most confusing change I've ever heard of in any MMO I've ever played.

You need GLB University - just 20000 flex and you can receive a diploma suitable for framing.

After 2years and15 season this where we are at....just about a complete over haul


Almost makes you think of the old argument of doing a complete wipe and starting over.
Making a new player is almost a waste of time...the following season it changes

+1 At some point you just have to own up to the fact that they're back to "alpha."

ok I just did the math with this new system, you say 160 tokens gets you a +3 and a 5% in whatever or an SA

now upgrade that to 56 and it is going to cost you like 328 tokens

compared to now that is a HUGE increase in bonus tokens

even if I take my current level 56 eq and sell it back to use the token exchange, I am only going to get 128 tokens leaving a difference of 200 I will need to earn to get it back to 56 in the new system.

this is not fair imo

Eh, that's a little disingenious, since in the current system there's no way to pick exactly what the +3/+5% buff (or even that you'll get those mods together).

Say you shop for a bit and find something. It'll cost 168 bonus tokens to upgrade it to L56 in the new system plus how ever many tokens you spent buying shopping tokens.

Honestly, for the purpose of getting new AEQ, I think you'd be pretty dumb to sell off a quality AEQ for 2x the bonus tokens. Just keep what you got.

You mean it left alpha? I thought Beta was just a name, nothing more, as they don't know what the hell they really want with this game.

I have an idea, lets change the game now, and make it a basketball game. Then in 2 years make it a hockey game, and then in 2 more years make it into a baseball game. Then 2 years after that we can make it a football game and start all over again.

Why was this changed? It was better the way it was. Not too many people complained about the building system other than to make plateau longer.

is the odds going to improve at all when shopping for those 3+ 5% pieces? because I could have 100 shopping tokens in the current system, use them all and still never found one.

I know on some of my players I have wasted well over 50 and got nothing but garbage.

my CB has been trying to get this certain SA for the past 2 seasons, and still nothing.

SDC?
I'm in the exact same boat (and I also burned 50 STs from the refunds looking for it). There's too much returner and o-line AEQ there.
