Amount of DQ points awarded per DQ has disappeared. I hope its only text bug, not a bug where said points wouldnt be awarded any longer.

    Hi all, this was a deliberate change in anticipation of the DQ system's eventual takedown. While the functionality of DQ items remain (you may still sell them for points), our intention is to gradually phase out their usage.

    you really should give a warning, some people were stockpiling them for a 2x dq points event like you had in the past..

    When is it planned to take them down completely? At least is there a week ahead or about a month or a year?

    WHAT!?? Really you're going to completely takedown the dq point system?? Omg is it so wrong for players to earn useful stuff for free, you're forcing us to pay ridiculous prices (even in game with coins) for random dyes, makeover scrolls and event gold. There better be a new kind of reward system PWI, but if you're just taking it down for good and that's it....well thats just ... urgh -.-

    i love the wording here. So basically youre taking away another thing that really makes this game free 2 play...and as with the Token shop you are doing so with no real heads up warning to the players ur just gonna "gradually phase out their usage" way to go pwi.

    Why is the DQ system being taken down?
    It was PWI's only conpensation for the DQ item nerf that was needed in PWCN due to heaving BOTing..

    From what I remember, the DQ point system was put into place to compensate our community for the destruction of the DQ point cost from the ranges of Lv1 to Lv60 DQ items I believe. Then (to my knowledge) the Jolly Jones Bounty quest was put into place for destruction of Lv60-Lv80 DQ items.
    By removing the DQ point system are you planning on putting in place another system to compensate players for the DQ coin cost or just hoping we forget why you put it into place in the first place?

    How they slowly breakdown pwi. started with the low lvl dq items, and now they gonna bring the system down. A lot of ppl use those dq points for several things. DQ items where used to be for low lvl to get coins, now they all gonna get rid of it. Think of all the fashion, event gold, the dyes u all gonna need to buy and save coins for. PWI is getting GREEDY. Giving low lvl's items till lvl 60 n what do they get? they cant even craft their own stuff. Ppl will need to spent gold for dyes, income for PWI? What about the income from the players? Its slowly changing into a cash play, instead of the FREE game they advertise with. b:angry b:angry b:angry

    PWI might as well just ban any non-cash-shopper if it keeps going like this... Cause it's starting to feel more and more like we're no longer wanted here... Like we already have so many options to actually farm our stuff... So... What free-to-play feature will you be taking next? b:surrender

    probably will make all boutique items bound as well as removing the gold AH, then to **** any f2p person over even more they will require gold to access instances like TT,WS,lunar,FCC and NW b:angry

    Since the DQ point system was put in place as compensation for removing the coin value from the DQ items, this totally means when the DQ points are removed, the coin value for the DQs will be reinstated , right?
    Right?
    Right?
    Am I right?
