Today, I wanted to share some upcoming changes to how a few currency systems will work moving forward. These changes will come into effect in the March update.
So, let’s break them down one by one:
Co-op Raid Hero Fragments: Last month, we released our newest Hero, Bucket. Due to the timing of the Co-Op Raids, the only way to have Bucket ready for Bounties was to purchase her directly through a bundle. This caused many Bucket-Required Bounty targets to sit in the backlog for large Alliances, and wasn’t the best experience. To address your feedback, we’re offering more options to unlock our next Hero.
Here is a mockup of what the updated Co-op Raid screen will look like. The key change is that there will be a Daily Limit (seen on the left) to how many Fragments of a new Hero you can receive in a given day. Once you’ve reached the Daily Limit on these Fragments, you’ll receive random Hero Fragments instead of the new Hero. Which Heroes are in this random pool will be updated for each new Raid.
Players who choose to buy a new Hero outright will be able to get mileage out of their purchases, while non-spenders can unlock the newest Hero over time.
Stamina: Purchasing Stamina will now have a fixed price, and will provide the same amount each time! We understand that if you buy Stamina a couple of times, the price increase can get a bit prohibitive. The cost will no longer increase with consecutive purchases.
Bucks Exchange: After a lot of feedback regarding Bucks, we have changed how the Bucks Exchange works. In a review of the Bucks Exchange, we felt that the escalating Gold cost created an interesting scenario where the more you used it, the less value you got out of it. We weren’t happy about that. In the March update, the number of Bucks you get out of the Exchange will remain consistent. No more increasing costs for repeated use of the Bucks Exchange.
Skill Points: Along with Stamina and the Bucks Exchange, we will be changing the Gold price of Skill Points. The Gold price for Skill Points will no longer inflate the more you use it. It will now be a flat price.
We realize this may not address all of the feedback regarding these systems that you’ve sent us. Rest assured, we’re still working on further adjustments. We have a lot of new features, updates to existing features, and new exciting rewards coming in the near future. Stay tuned for more details!
