    Great job on the terrain!

    BUT....

    One question, is the rebalancing all your doing or is MA at blame for some of the problems we see here on Arkadia now? Since the update I found that most all hunts have been costing me greatly as I have heard on Calypso. My guess was that it was MA at fault here..but seeing that you did the changes just wanted to know who is at fault here?

    Thanks for posting those extra details. Looking at the numbers I am a little stunned though. It will probably be a year before I am in a position to use the weapons I am used to buying. (I have UL gear but buy higher dps L weapons when I am going after bigger mobs).
    I think I will be ok hunting on Arkadia but for Mayhem I will have to go shopping on Caly. I simply cant reach the dps I need for that event with the Hermans I can use now.

    I'll try to get to entropedia tomorrow to do a comprehensive update of the weapon info.

    No, they would have done that before. From a miner point of view, these are ancient problems I've been pointing out since months.

    - lack of mid/high crafters (beside Chilix of course ;) )
    - lack of native mid/high mining amps/finders
    - presence of useless Calypsian ores we cant spend here
    - too many TT food ores
    - silly rare ordinary ores (at the beginning it was veda, lately it has been quil)
    - a whole range of materials (read treasures) that have been completely TT food for weeks (up to a couple of weeks ago, at least when I've stopped playing because of ridicolous mining results)

    Nerfing is obviously a problem, but people will catch up with that in few weeks. We've seen a lot of nerfing through the years. But Ark problems will remain beyond that if they dont address economy. And they haven't, IMVHO, so far. Many will say it's MA's fault... ok, but that is hurting Ark and its player base, that's enough for me.

    Ark has been an opportunity for many of us since the very beginning, but I can see the history is repeating.

    Sorry, I was replying to a previous post about economy improvements, but I've lost the quotes...

    seeing as you are one of the other people to post complaints about the cost of hunting and hitrate of arkadian mobs i was wondering how you feel about the nerf of calypso mobs this VU.

    of course it could all be a coincidence but i am cause and effect person and this whole "MA made us do it" is wearing a bit thin as a excuse for me :)

    To be honest I haven't even looked at any of the new caly changes ;D

    Regarding the weapons sib changes, I have prob lost access to 4-5 guns, only 2 of which I was using for big mobs (asi 40 arctic). At the rate I am skilling atm tho I should be maxed on them again by next year. So the effect on my day to day hunting is minimal, only mayhem plans that are a bit screwed... considering not entering now.

    Also normally I try not to post in these threads or try to whine on forums (dont like to feed trolls or headbutt with fanboys)... I did complain because I see a serious imbalance regarding the cost to kill of the mobs.

    Of the changes I see on the mob stats of those that I hunt, it looks good. Kadra doing less speed and dmg, but more regen seems good. The hit and dmg changes to riptor also seem in good direction, it always felt that the mob dmg output took a huge jump at alpha and up.

    Anyhooo... gl guys back to hunting for me :D

    PS. chilix and Kikki dotn feel to despondent, I will be burning through your supplies of asi-40, ark 30 desert & ark 40 very soon hehe

    I have been directed to this thread Support after I complained about not being able to use my ARK 50 as the levels increased from 45 or 50 (can't remember) to 70. What a massive hike.

    This expensive L weapon only came out for PK uses and has a Bull Tac elite on it. All of a sudden it's all useless!

    I have read the reasons given and do understand, to a point. However, if I buy something with my hard earned real money, I expect it to stay the same. Like buying a car off someone, who then turns up 6 months later, smashes the engine and say "oh well, thats tough".

    I can see 3 things that could have been done to lessen the impact...
    1. A warning given about these changes in all forums so we have time to use them up.
    2. Allowing guns that are already in circulation to continue at their previous stats untill finnished. Hard to impliment I know.
    3. Compensation given at the previous MU for all weapons owned and made useless by this change.

    I love ARK weapons, and use them more than any others, but I am disappointed and angry at this change.

    Hi Rooster,

    Thank you for the earnest feedback. Your points are definitely valid. In saying this, we still can't change what has been done, but we'll think more carefully about this perspective in future and make sure our participants are well informed of any major changes to their investments.

    Thanks.
