Patch 2.0 is coming! Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Dear Players,

Below is the changelog of patch 2.0. The patch will go live on 13.11.2018 in the morning.

Best regards,
BWTeam



All servers:

Level recalculation:
We’ve changed how much experience you need to level up.
Training costs have been altered so that they better fit the new levelling speed and make it possible to train even at higher levels.
Your training and free PoPs have also been recalculated to reflect how much you would have if you were playing with the new costs and level requirements from the beginning.
Ambush, expedition and quest reports now look better. In the new reports, apart from the detailed information included previously, there’ll be a simple, animated version! In addition to that, resources gained will be summed up and items found will be sorted by quality

Bestial fury talisman: changed requirements to Green/Green/Blue/Yellow/Yellow (instead of three green and two yellow).
WARNING! When the patch goes live, the rune that changed colour will be removed from all talismans and also from all saved talisman sets.

Added new evolution levels (except for aura-like evolutions). The new levels have identical effects as the first 5 levels. All the effects are cumulative. The cost of buying and using evolutions levels 6-10 is doubled.
Added new evolution: Enhanced muscles.

Lowered the cost of Mana Contamination to 300 / 600 / 900 / 1200 / 1500 evolution points.
The appropriate number of evolution points will be refunded.

You now get evolution points at odd levels:
  • level 3 - 49 => +10 evolution points at every odd level
  • level 50 - 65 => +50 evolution points for every odd level
  • above level 65 => +100 evolution points for every odd level

Evolution points have been given retroactively to every player.

You get the same amount of experience from expeditions and in acts 1-3.
You now get more experience for running expeditions with 2 + people. The higher the expedition, the more experience you get, even in larger teams.
You can no longer decide to not get experience during expeditions.

Blocking or absorbing arcana will no longer disable arcana-based talismans.

Battle stats implemented in patch 1.7.11 have been removed.

Beating the last level of a KotH expedition will award additional experience: character level x 5 x location number.

Apprentice temporary bonus will work up to level 64.
Adept temporary bonus will give you + 1 evolution points and will work up to level 49.
Champion temporary bonus will give you + 2 evolution points and will work from level 50 to level 64.
In the summaries of team fights, the amount of damage dealt will now be equal to the HP lost. For example, if your opponent has 100 HP and you deal them 5000 damage, then the summary will say that you dealt 100 damage.

Can we turn off the animations? Please? An option in settings.

A lot of us think it’s awful. Sorry to be blunt. But the rest of this patch looks great.

I'm going to ask something you can in no way promise, but I really hope you can take in to consideration...

If it's ready on the Friday, could you roll it out early?

On your side of things, this is a regular job. It makes sense to roll out at the start of a working week.

But we're the end users playing a game for fun. This would give us all a weekend to mess around with the changes, and in the case of the Polish players a long weekend to play around with all the new toys.

Just putting it forwards that if you manage to finish early, please feel free to roll out early! Smile

theheraldofogc - we could do that in theory but imagine something bad and unexpected happens on Saturday when no one is around to fix it (or at least do it quickly). We've already had rollbacks and I don't think it's a pleasant experience for anyone. It's better to deploy a patch, especially one as big as this one, when we can act immediately if something goes wrong.

alyat - your collected PoP will also be recalculated. Spend them if you want but overall you should be happy with the recalculation.

I'm going to presume that spending your PoP before the patch shouldnt make a difference. If the recalculation is based off the new level/training system it should give the same relative value either way.
But keep in mind that, as has always been the case, if you spend PoP before a level up that gets you free stats, you increase the (potential)value of the free stats, so given the fact that you will also gain multiple levels with the patch, you should probably spend them anyway.

I am assuming some key details though, so I'd definitely prefer some clarification.

I can't give you the exact formula, but I can say that the recalculation will be more beneficial for people who invest in training more heavily.

So the points that we loose after patch was used to rise our stats or they just was taken abusively from us?

For example i loose 20 000 000 for what?

I dont understand why we lost pop either,
Thankfully I gained more than I lost (I'm assuming that was a refund from the reduced training costs), but without explaination for the lost pop it just seems like robbery.

Is it related to the apparently reduced exp from expos?

quote:
Your training and free PoPs have also been recalculated to reflect how much you would have if you were playing with the new costs and level requirements from the beginning.


How would any change to training costs (esspecially a reduction) affect how much pop (basically exp) you've earned?

Or is it that you've no idea which stats were bonus stats, making it impossible to accurately give refunds, so you force spent everyones pop before/after the conversion and gave refunds based on resulting stats?

My guess is because any absorber with decent bp gear had way more luck in quests than a non-absorber collector could hope to match, which was a bit ridiculous to be fair.

The PoPs you've lost were basically used to increase your stats to speed-server levels. I'll ask about the arcanum change.

EDIT:

As stated above, the arcanum was simply too good in quests too.

you guys launched a speed server and then lowered the
xp were getting from expos?
it`s like the wookie on endor., it doesnt make sense..

we were getting 1.1 mil PoP for 2 man astarte,
its now down to 900k..
3 man astarte gives only 500k PoP, down from 750k.

is this a bug or is it how it`s gonna be?

last thing, the luck seems to be effected by something,

67 base luck, + 30 PoB =127 luck,
+ daemon blood + grimoire = 55, so thats 182 luck,
but only 167 luck is registering..

is this a bug also???

i know that aichi, but why reduce xp if we are ultimately on
a speed server..??
sure we lvl up quicker overall, but this hinders the
process.. 1.1 mil per day, thats fast levelling,
but now its reduced, thats an extra expo or 2 to lvl up,
so its more like a not so speedy server., you get me?

im only asking anyway, satisfy my curiosity.

should we not have gained PoP on top of our saved PoP szej?
if the stats were recalculated then there should`ve been change from
the recalculation added to our PoP that we saved?

http://prntscr.com/lhld6j That`s my training page from 2 days ago, surely
my knowledge alone would`ve covered the stats??

I suck at math`s so it`s partly why im asking.. Smile

As I said, I can't give you the exact formula Frown

Regarding your luck, could you post it in the bugs section?

I really does seem strange to reduce the cost of training but charge people for the change, but I do acknowledge that accurately caculating what people spent on training is impossible due to the free stats from lvl-ups (unless it was tracked from the beginning, wich I highly doubt was the case).
The math really fails to show any sign of logic as to where all the pop went given training costs are so much lower at higher levels.

Also would love to know where the logic comes from on the reduced exp from expos. Surely reducing potential exp gain, after such a long time at higher levels, will, in effect, increase the gap between low/mid and high level players.
Relative lvl gain remains the same so the arguent that we gain lvls faster now is irrelevant. The time it will take to gain the exp that high lvl players have already has greatly increased. Based off the expos I've seen over the last few days, it looks like ~33% lower exp gain, which means ~150% of the time to gain the same amount of exp as before the patch.

Edit: Just to clarify, there's lots about the patch that I like (particularly the push in ranged tattoo paths to specialise in light or heavy) so I'm certainly not rejecting it as a whole. I just cant understand the logic regarding the abovementioned issues.

Exp from expos was boosted in previous patches to let you level up faster. Now levelling up takes much less exp, so we've just cut the boost.

But you do realise how that solidifies the gap between high and low level players dont you?
It's not so simple to just remove a boost to exp gain.
Even if the boost was proportionately the same, higher mobs gave more "boosted" exp, so higher level players gained alot more boosted exp than lower levels. If the boost remains constant it's not a problem, as every player would have the same opportunity to take advantage of that boost, but by removing it after so long, only the highest players will ever see the rapid grow they had... newer players (or 10+year veterans like myself who just havent had the time to dedicate to playing as consistantly and have lagged behind others who've played as long) will now require ~150% more time to reach the stage of current high level players.
This is an old server, its been 10 years since act 2 launched (7yrs since act3), thats a pretty long time of accumulating boosted exp.
You've made efforts to help newer players "catch up", but they're dwarfed by the shere mountain of time it'll take to "catch up" to our server's rank 1 player. Nndungu has over 1mil points (and I'm sure other servers have higher lvl players than that), even if I could earn 1mil exp a day from day 1 (about 5 or 6 times what I'm getting now at lvl 112) thats still nearly 3 years to reach Nndungu's current lvl.
Crudely speaking, you can essentialy say 33% of Nndungu's current exp was from the "boost" (assuming the boost gave +50% exp as it appears to have), so even with the scenario of earning 1mil exp a day that's gives nearly a year of playing just to match the "boosted" portion of Nndungu's exp.

Do you expect me to play another 5-10 years to reach current top player levels?
Actually catching up with high level players will be impossible now unless they quit playing for several years.
Please reconsider the implications of removing a boost thats been in place far longer than not.

I think the issue of new players not being able to catch up to old players is much bigger than any single patch. It's more of a something built into the game. Ideally the issue would be solved by having new servers and I have high hopes of that when the app is finally finished.

The gap was still big before the patch. Say for 2 man astarte we used to get up to nearly 2 mill pop daily, now barely getting 1.2 mil. Compared to Agra’s etc now we don’t get much points anymore and the difference is roughly the same

The game itself is way too slow. You’ll never get any new people stay. Especially if you make an “App” that is just an app that loads a website for example.

What you need are things to speed stuff up. Any game now days has constant bonus’ to keep people involved and interested in games. There is a fine line between pay to win and speeding up.

The only new people are old ones that are rejoining there’s nothing to keep people here.
