    Those foil changes are making my head spin @[email protected] I'm sure it'll make sense when I look at the vendor.

    I like the thing of moving a bunch of store rewards into being drops instead, gives me a reason to go farm. Time to blow up more manimals! \o/

    Events
    • Starting next year, some older event rewards will be retired. These items will be placed in the Trade Paperback store.
    • Starting next year, existing event currency will be be retired and events will be using a new currency every year.
    • There will be no exchanges for old event currency.
    • Events that occur multiple times a year will use the same currency for that year. This applies to the Nighthawk, Circus Malvanum, High Noon, and the Nightmare Invasion events.
    • Next year's event store prices will be revisited (likely being lowered) to account for these changes.

    My first thought to this is it's a crappy change that is obviously made to try to force people to grind every day of every event (as if we don't already do that when there's items we want and they all are 400 each). My second thought is that the currency drops better be higher and/or the store prices be a lot lower (no more of this 400 for everything crap). I generally only log in because of events but if it's going to be too much of a grind, which it's already a grind anyway, to get what should be fun event items, then I'm just not going to log in. Yes, I know, nobody cares if I play or not, but I still felt like saying something.

    P.S. Keep in mind that people play multiple games and they all tend to run their big holiday events at the same time so some players have to micromanage their in-game time and/or choose which game gets their attention (i.e. if it's too difficult and no fun to do an event in one game, then they won't play that game). I know I've skipped some events in CO because I look at the grind and the prices of the items and decide it's not worth it to me.

    The only thing mentioned that would in any way change the overall amount of event grinding you would be doing is that the prices will possibly be lower. Oh also and you no longer have a reason to grind an event at all if it doesn't have rewards you want. So really, the only possible outcomes are equal or less grinding.

    With the change, you will always have to earn enough during that particular year's event to get what you want because you won't have any leftovers to help like before, you'll be starting from scratch every single time; that is a huge change. But like I said, if the event store prices are low enough, and/or currency drops high enough, it might be okay.

    Yeah but how often did you actually grind out enough for that?

But like I said, if the event store prices are low enough, and/or currency drops high enough, it might be okay.

    The overall amount of grinding isn't changed however.

    With tokens carrying over:
    -Year 1 you grind for 6 hours, and make 600 tokens and buy 1 item for 400 tokens, and have 200 left over the next year.
    - Year 2 you grind for 2 hours and make 200 tokens for 400 tokens total and buy 1 item for 400 tokens.

    Total grind time 8 hours, total items gained 2.

    With tokens not carrying over:
    - Year 1 you grind for 4 hours, then stop knowing your tokens won't carry over next year, and buy 1 item for 400 tokens.
    - Year 2 you grind for 4 hours, then stop knowing your tokens won't carry over next year, and buy 1 item for 400 tokens.

    Total grind time 8 hours, total items gained 2.

    This is because those leftovers didn't come from nowhere, you spent time to get those as well so they didn't actually reduce the amount of time you spent grinding. The only real change here is that instead of grinding extra in the first year, you spent that time instead grinding in the second year. The only thing you lost was motivation to continue grinding when you've already gotten all the rewards you wanted in the current year, and that only applies to events that come once a year. For events that can come multiple times a year nothing has changed.

    You're not even losing any of the extra tokens that you earned this year, because you'll still have an opportunity to spend them at the event where all the vendors are up simultaneously.

    And on top of all that, there's a chance they're going to lower the prices of items because of the change to not getting carried over tokens. So, the only possible outcomes here are: same amount of grinding or less. Well, unless they start adding way more rewards that you care about than they have in the past, in which case you will be grinding more, but I'd love to hear someone make an argument for why they want less rewards that they want.

    I normally have under fifty event tokens at the end of any event, unless for some reason I was farming the event for a reason other than tokens. It's noticeable but certainly not huge, particularly since the reprint event seems to exist for the purpose of letting you burn off caches of currencies.
  • aaronkorraaronkorr Posts: 48 Arc User
    Just one little concern about the event currency token changes. I'm hoping retiring them will mean wiping them off your currency tab unlike the 'retired' nemesis tokens that a number of us have been stuck with since that change. Otherwise... that list of currencies is going to get very long over time.

    Would also be nice to see some minor event item that could be bought for 1 of said currency with the new system just so we can get rid of the last bit at the end of each one without jumping through extra hoops.
  • kallethenkallethen Posts: 1,576 Arc User
    Considering that I've noticed a steady increase in event store item costs over the past few years, I welcome these changes as a way to lower said prices. This will potentially mean less farming for me.​​

    Yeah I definitely think we wouldn't be looking at this as such a bad change if like 70-80% of all the event costume parts they've added for a while now hadn't been the full 400-token price, literally half the cap. So if they're more willing to release items at the cheaper price point, as well as lowering the cost of the tiers by default (from the current 300/400), shouldn't be so bad.

    And I agree that not being able to save up isn't so bad a change either. It just means you don't get what you want the first day, you have to wait a few days and save up. The only problem is that we're losing all the currency we already have saved up, but at least this Reprint event is giving us a chance to blow through our storage before it goes!
  • warcanchwarcanch Posts: 822 Arc User
    As a perpetual hoarder, I dislike this change .. initially. However, after I settle down and shove my soap-box back under the stairwell, I see it as a positive action. As long as event store prices get reduced.

    Grinding for tokens is not fun. Gathering tokens due to usual play is much more fun. Having enough after some casual play for a new item induces this one to enjoy it more.​​

    Yeah pretty sure that's the point, to give everyone a chance to expend and stocks they have built up and get a few more coins if they're a little short on something.

    This patch is just "We're trying to prevent Q-Exchange from dying again. So we're making items require Questionite to compensate!" Just hope that the new players are willing to play along since the vets practically already have everything.

    Well I have over 50 characters so this just pisses me off because i have been stocking up each year so as to make the grind less. Now this, the prices better be almost half and the drop rate doubled, not what i think they will do decrees all 400 to 300 or 350 and increase drop to 3 or 5. That is just a slap in the face as each year it is gone, so you are stuck on the event running around grinding, also some of the events require groups to do so less of that will happen no more trains as can not stock the coin. Once people have what they want they will just move on and the ones who can not get on much will be screwed. But maybe i am calling doom before it is so we will see what is what
  • panthrax77panthrax77 Posts: 246 Arc User
    I can understand people being upset about losing tokens, but there's a reprint event to make sure you can actually spend them.

    No one knows how "bad" it will even be until we actually see the new prices. No sense in freaking out just yet. If the prices turn out to be horrible, feel free to go nuts. :P

    My issue here is that they push the Reset Button so they can force us farm THE SAME EVENTS which we have been farming years now the game has been in maintenance mode
    Other games which reset the tokens have Different seasonal events every year or they add a whole brand new event mission chain to continue the plot!
    Will Champions Online add additional Mission-chains for those events every year which explore the Lore even more and in the size of Death Ratling? I doubt it

    It's Lazy design to recycle content! That's the huge deal for me here!
    Same time pandering fetch quest dailies for every seasonal event (Go look for Teddy Bears, Go find fake Foxbats, got fire up fireworks, go bully halloweeners, got destroy destroits) and by the end of the event where the BIG BOYS come out to fight I'm already drained fromt he grinding

    and one of the reasons I Hoarded myself Tokens as well after getting everything from the store for Next year, So i can reduce the mindless grinding! Because after years of Grinding, those events are not fun! Especially since I do them with multiple characters so i can get the event costumes faster with multiple resources, especially with the ridiculous amounts of 400 Tokens costumes


    2 of my characters who I was trying the Steampunk dog sidekick from High Noon, but the Time frame for that event was ONLY 1 WEEK and they couldn't get it! Now their remaining Tokens will be gone​​

    So few new things are added now to any of these events that for me the grind is trivial since I have everything I want from earlier and I can get enough currency on my characters that it's pretty painless to get the new pieces. Usually I pick up 1 vehicle and that's where most of the grind is. I mostly skip the first week and just do the more interactive parts that come later. Now, I do feel sorry for anyone just joining the game who sees an event store with, say, 20 old pieces in it and feels like they have to get all of them now, but that's what drops and the AH can cover.

    The reprint "Daily Gift!" mission has some of the names on the currency rewards switched. For example, selecting Turakian Coins rewards Elysium Coins.

    Can we get the mods in event store to cost 1 token, so we can get rid of all these under 10 remaining event tokens? (they are only rank 3)
  • redcastle56redcastle56 Posts: 99 Arc User
    For those of you who havent noticed, the toymaster also has all stores up. So if you are really just short a few, buy up those old AFs and costumes and trade them in as well.

    Yeah, that's definitely why it doesn't bother me. We get like 1-2 new parts a week for events now, it's a pretty reasonable "grind".

    As for new players and the piles of older parts, didn't they say next year they're going to be putting some of those in the TPB store instead?

    Anyway, something I wanted to ask. Did they remove that vendor that let you spend extra event tokens to trade in event auras for a boxed version you could trade to another character? I know they only had it for like... one or two events, and then they might've removed it? I kinda miss that, it'd be useful.

    So few new things are added now to any of these events that for me the grind is trivial since I have everything I want from earlier and I can get enough currency on my characters that it's pretty painless to get the new pieces. Usually I pick up 1 vehicle and that's where most of the grind is. I mostly skip the first week and just do the more interactive parts that come later.

    New players are lucky, look at all the motivation to do events they'll have.

    This change has made me take a closer look at ALL of my alts and what tokens each holds. Since the tokens are going to go POOF if I don't use them, USE them I have.

    And bought a number of costumes, etc that I didn't really care to grind for before, but am now motivated to go ahead and purchase. It takes care of some far overdue "housecleaning" on the horde of alts.

    The vendor that gives 20 tokens daily has really helped the alts that were almost there.​​

    Bug
    In the Collector's Store
    Draysha Supercharger isn't spelled correctly the spelling in the store is: "Draysha Supercharge" also it's not a lockbox item but rather a Key Pack Device from the: Havoc Key Pack and thus shouldn't be in the Collector's Store.
    Removed the following items from the store as they were not featured in any lockbox, these items have been moved into the Trade Paperback store:
    • All Transport items.
    • All purple Action Figures.
    • All Key Pack costumes and devices.

    It's been in the Collector's Store for quite a while, hasn't it?

    BUG: Toymaster's two stores for the Winter event are the same instead of being one for titles and one for charms. IIRC, they are both charms.​​

    New Event: Reprint Event
    Starting Thursday this event will be running for 1 week.
    • During this event all event stores will be available in the Recognition area and all event currency (with the exception of Winter) will be able to drop from all enemies.
    ​​

    i've been lvling a few alts and noticed a lack of event currency drops outside of the open world areas. 433 Kills in demon flame and no event currency drops at all. No drops in Alert missions either.
    i jumped on a lvl 40 to test zones to see if drops happen outside MC. Desert, Canada, MI, and Lemuria open world areas all have a chance to drop event currency, but some Open Mission mobs wont drop anything.
    Lvl 40 drops rates were around 2-4% chance, meaning 1 drop every 2-3 dozen kills, but sometimes i would kill 100+ and not see any drops.
    Lvl 16 in MC saw a drop every 20 kills or so, even when fighting enemies well below the exp threshold.

    It's a really oversized "Follow" button. I see it too, others I asked don't.

    So what happens if we follow the oversized "Follow" button?

    [*] Starting next year, existing event currency will be be retired and events will be using a new currency every year.
    [*] There will be no exchanges for old event currency.

    So let me see if I understand this. You are saying that every year we have the chance to have a new currency line (same name?) to the point where our currency list can grow infinitely? So if I have 1 or 2 of a certain currency, I'll be stuck with it forever? If so, that is a stupid decision. We need a way to discard old currency if it's not going to be used anymore.

    If I'm wrong, please say so.
