    Developer Notes #5

    One area where we have received lots of feedback concerns the item upgrade system. Most of the feedback and questions received by the MindArk support department relate to the speed at which items gain new tier intervals, and the cost of raising an item to the next tier level. We hope to address those concerns in this developers note article.

    Tier Speed
    Within the current system, tier progress is taking much longer than intended, in some cases by a large factor. The MindArk dev team has been testing new parameters for this system which will increase the speed at which unlimited items gain tiers, especially at higher tier levels.

    Due to the delicate nature of the tier upgrade system, adjustments must be made carefully and tested thoroughly. Our goal is to complete such testing and implement the adjusted tier progress rates before the end of this year.

    Tier Cost
    We are also analysing the cost to increase the tier level of various items, and ensure that such costs are balanced and reasonable. Adjustments to the cost of tiering are even more delicate than those related to tier speed, and thus will require a longer period of testing before changes can be implemented.

    At least MindArk doesn't use straight white on their website.. Or I'd have never been able to read that without highlighting it all... Please, people... remove formatting when using copy/paste here. Otherwise it's invisible to those using a lighter theme.

    Anyone else find it funny when MA uses the terms balanced and resonable when speaking of the game. Is google translate having an issue for mixing up the definitions again?

    Its a shame... Tiering was a nice idea ie to make weapons more unique. But the benefits are so small and the time taken so long. Its something that is probably largely disregarded by a number of players. Hope these adjustments help.

    its not soo much the tiering that put me off , it was the enhancers that did all that..why spend tons of money tiering an item when the use for it is nothing less then writing a blank check to someone because you have no clue what you get with each enhancer.

    totally agree sounds like they are more something to increase loot sizes.
