    In order to provide a fair, exciting and challenging experience for all Entropia Universe participants, revised guidelines for proper balancing of mission rewards have been provided to the Planet Partners.

    There are two primary goals of the new mission reward guidelines:
    • Ensure that missions reward participants adequately and fairly for the associated activity.
    • Ensure that rewards provided by missions on the different planets within Entropia Universe are in balance with one another.
    These new guidelines require that the current skill and attribute rewards must be adjusted for all missions on all planets. The actual adjustment of rewards will be implemented with the Planet Partner release scheduled for August 21, 2012. After the August release, any missions already in progress will provide the adjusted rewards rather than the rewards previously given.


    MindArk has encouraged Planet Partners to provide temporary spawns of mission creatures during the next several months to facilitate participants completing their current mission objectives before the rewards changes take place.

    That's a good thing if you ask me. Dave/Cyrus can you shed some light on the question if this will affect the current arkadian missions?

    I dont like the sound of this at all. The big payoffs on Caly are for the 10k missions and I've only finished one of those so far. Oh well, it's not like I can do anything about it.

    Useful post from MA rep at PCF: http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/f...-Rebalancing&p=2929198&viewfull=1#post2929198
    "No, this is not necessarily a "nerf" to all missions.

    In general there will be a heavier focus on skill rewards rather than attributes, or mission tokens.
    All missions will have their Nova Fragment rewards replaced with skill rewards. Skill rewards will be calculated in a way that will take into account the actual difficulty of the creature rather than just its health.

    In the end this means that some missions will have their rewards increased while others will get decreased.

    Also, this is a MindArk decision that all planet partners has to follow, but I do believe that skill rewards is in most cases, at least to low/mid level players much more valuable than attributes or Mission tokens. Also I know many are hesitant to complete missions that reward attributes because they want to get their attributes high before earning any through missions. This can actually prevent new players from reaching higher attribute levels because they gained a lot of points from missions while their attributes where still easy to obtain through normal activity."

    I read through the PCF thread and based on what the MA guy wrote, I wouldnt necessarily expect the existing attribute rewards to go away. But its hard to be sure. Think I am going to be trying to do a lot of the 1k iron missions on caly over the next couple of months.

    We are currently reviewing the changes, but early analysis suggests Arkadia's missions will not need any changes. In effect this change makes things much clearer for all planet partners regarding mission rewards and as such we can soon get the stage 5 missions into the game. It should also make it much quicker for us to add further missions of all types.

    Just to make sure, this includes no changes to the current 400 kill attribute rewards?

    Bit of an update, it appears we will be making changes to Arkadia's missions, although maybe less change than on other planet/s. I can't say what will happen to any mission yet.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Could we get maybe a rough ETA of information about what will be changing so we can plan accordingly? I think quite a few people are particularly interested in what attributes will be disappearing or moving, if not what exactly will be replacing them.

    Thanks.

    and they still wont get changed until august right? I'm a little impatient to as i've got only a couple kills left on a couple mobs to finish some stages up and been holding off until i know if i should wait or not. Thats really the problem with all this we all feel like we gotta put things on hold until we know what to expect.

    Even just knowing the first 3 stage changes would help out a lot as more people are on those stages then the stage 4 and up ones.

    I think thats why revenue on CLD was down because people are on wait and see mode.
