Economy changes: robots and weapons more affordable

Author - Lanf

 

We want all new robots and weapons as some of the existing ones to be more affordable. It will be easier to acquire robots you really like and start playing them as soon as you want. At the same time upgrades will be harder to produce and pilots will invest in gear they really want to play. In a nutshell: equipment will be much easier to get but longer to upgrade.

For example, you will get Mercury 3 times faster, on average. The same goes for Pursuer, Spectre, Inquisitor and other fresh robots. Ember’s or Dragoon’s acquiring time will be reduced by third and Redeemer’s will be cut in half.

We rebalance economy of some of the old robots as well. For example, Destrier will take twice longer to upgrade, while Rogatka upgrades will be faster. Mind that all upgrade changes will affect only the new-acquired equipment. So upgrade time for robots or weapons you already have won’t change.

In order to help you upgrade your favourite gear Battle Rewards will bring twice as much silver. The exact amount will depend on your league. But for any league silver rewards will be doubled.

All these changes will appear in one of the closest updates. With them we want to support one of War Robots core concepts: customize gameplay the way you want and choose the robots and weapons that suit you the most.

Something stinks, and it's not your aftershave.

I can’t believe you’re talking about upgrades taking even LONGER!? You are kidding, right? Didn’t y’all extend the time for upgrades last year? I believe you did. IF, IF, IF, you have to change anything, raise the cost of an upgrade, as they take TOO damn long already. Another suggestion would be to let us upgrade more than one bot/weapon at a time. It takes FOREVER to get equipment up to a reasonably usable strength, please don’t extend the time to get there. I love brawling, but I’m one of those folks that CANNOT spend real money. (Social security...lol) And.......it’s getting really old being matched against players 4,5, and 6 levels above me. Massacres are not a whole lotta fun. Been playing a long time. Started on Android, then when I got my iPad (iOS) I had to start all over???? Hmmm

I love this change! I applaud you Pixonic and War Robots team!! Having said that I will always continue to spend money on this great game! Send me some 200% gold offers for $99 USD!!!

A Customer, SHUT UP ABOUT THE ROYAL

DON'T YOU KNOW?
I HAVE ANOTHER NOOB ACCOUNT FROM FB GAMEROOM
AND EVERYTIME I DRAW THE FIRST CARD THEY ALWAYS GIVE ME GOLD OR GREEN CARDS
they are nice people! Don't say that about them! they are currently not worried about new players yet because there are tons of them so they always have a chance to climb up the league!
But for my thunder carnage (maxed out), gust stalker(LV 8), shotgun griffin(all lv 5) and orkan fujin (lv 6-8) in expert league, they are not dying yet! Because there is a mode called FFA, they trying really hard to balance the game for current high league players,

Longer upgrade time is for money players to be satisfied because if they don't make the upgrade time longer and just throw in this shit called 'cheaper component' weapons, the rich players will just be like "WTF,I CASHED FOR THIS HAECHI RIGHT HERE"
and get furious and just quit the game :)

Cheaper component weapons is because Pixonic wants every player to get a chance to try out those cool weapons, let's calculate
you currently have 3500 ember components and you need like another one and a half months to get it and upgrading it till max is total of 2 and a half months

but for the new update, they are making it CHEAPER so you can just buy it instantly, but the upgrade time is longer, which means the 1 and a half months is gone, but for the upqrade time has been increased so it should be around that 2 and a half months

So Pixonic wants players to get access to component weapons FASTER but in order for the cash player to be satisfied they decided to increase the upqrade time which is actually bullshit because the time to get them to MK2 lv12 for current version and for later version is going to be about the same so why complain about it when they are making it so fair?

Now talking about the Royal thing, the newer you are in this game, the more likely the chance you will get components instead, for my new FB gameroom accountS, i noticed that i most likely get 1500 components straight up the first draw but for my older account in android they normally just allow you to draw cards that is 1-3 columns higher than the current possible reward.

Oh yeah... for that shit you called taking right there, if your unhappy then go FFA! everyone's happy when they see tankers in FFA, they just get killed instantly! why bother go teams then? like you said, your a 3year Veteran and i'm just a 6-months noob in Expert League II with a shit hanger! Go FFA, i believe that you can surely trash them the moment FFA starts (@.@--) so screw off if your gonna talk about tanking, sometime tanking can be good! i witnessed them before! fall to the expert league if you dare!

Matchmaking system is just something Pixonic did for compulsory purposes, i always get matched up with champions, i somehow always get No.4,No.3 and No.2
if your going to keep complaining there and wait for some updates, why don't find out some solutions for yourself while waiting?

Make the Bulwark easier to get

blazegamer3 months ago

Are you serious
With longer upgrades we what you to cheaper the Au needed for upgrades and you are making it more harder to upgrade
This is shit
I bought Fury 3X Zeus bot all gold but I repent of buying but I want to sell in gold but why I get back silver in return
This need to be changed
don't longer the upgrades rather have two separate queues for upgrading
or Again you will get the hate from the community.

Arturo Soriano3 months ago

Is it possible to make a suggestion? Can you make the controls movable to different places just like in pubg mobile so we can use l1 r1 triggers. Or if you can make the game bluetooth controller compatible that would be great.

Zer0cool3 months ago

Your finally doing something about the Great Silver NERF of June 2015. It used to be possible to earn 1,000,000 silver in a match if you were skilled, and then without notice or warning it was slashed by more than half. The devs refused to talk about it at all.

Almost all my gear is level 11 as the upgrades to 12 are just massive, way too much for the amount I play.

ViperShot3 months ago

about dam time i really want some of good stuff but cant cause... A im in a lower league and dont get alot of the whats needed and speaking of which when the hell are you going to fix the tanking issue as well as match making im only gold and im geting matched with masters and champion league players and cant do a dam thing... oh a shocktrain bulg dash zap 1/2 health gone dash again zap dead.

You’re making robots and weapons more affordable yet the cost to renew spins for the Spectre in Royale have more than doubled in the last week. I call BS.

Keith Tuazon3 months ago

It will only affect he new acquired equipments after the said update? Or the new acquired equipments as of now?

This is a great idea to give all a chance! Please can you sort out the lock on button too, what’s the point in having a side shield on a bulg if every time you turn it loses it target?

Must be worried about certain new games coming out, milked what they could now they are changing things up lol, I still think it’s a load of crap...games dead

Winston Ling3 months ago

I like the part about more silver. upgrading the equipments especially with MARK 2 now is taking up so much silver, and also the price to BUY silver should also be reduced.

haimerejj3 months ago

It thought it was interesting, waste of time reading those nonsense..

When you make the upgrade times longer, at least make silver a "speed up upgrade" payment option!

Soooo ... I'm still trying to figure out what will become of the I.P. many of us had been saving before the FB debacle ended the whole thing ?

Mike Hill3 months ago

I usually see a lot of negative comments but I would like to thank you WR. The last few updates and WP 2.0 are pretty much proof you guys are listening. I like that your giving better equipment faster and more silver. The longer wait times for upgrades I do understand as a trade off but have you guys considered mk2 and multiple hangars. It took me in champion league about 9 months to get all my level 12 stuff in 1 hangar to mk2 12 and I sped stuff up with gold. For multiple hangars your talking about years for a brand new player to get 2 to 3 hangars maxed out. I focused on a set group of gear I knew was good for my league but as you progress the the BOTS that you were working and spending silver on become less viable. You then have to ditch them for newer better gear. I hope you guys consider that and over all I think things are definitely moving in the right direction and you guys are doing a good job.

Pilot 733533 months ago

I think it will be good for the game.
I think more players will want to play now.

AnarchoDom3 months ago

So basically, if I’m in Champs league, I’ll get the new gear faster but it will cost me more and will take longer till my new purchases are high level enough to be viable in that league?

Terry Adrian3 months ago

I refuse to get my hopes up as I've learned from all the previous updates over the years that it's never quite what it seems. There's always some kind of catch or trade off. Some bots already take silly amounts of both silver and time to upgrade so how much more expensive and longer will those upgrades be after the update?

There won't be much point in getting all the new bots and weapons if it becomes virtually impossible to upgrade them. Silver earnings are currently at their lowest since the games introduction and for the first time ever I'm spending silver faster than I can replenish it because earnings are so low. I've never experienced this before in nearly three years of playing this game.

On the surface it sounds positive and like a move in the right direction but how many times has Pixonic lead us to believe that before? Only to be let down again and again with every update. I've learned not to get my hopes up and instead adopt a "let's wait and see" type of attitude.

So......let's wait and see.

Hey WWR first of all we are fighting with you guys to have an extra slot for upgrades but you are thinking to make it more lengthy process but making bots cheap is also good can't say anything & where is the reload button I need it please

Zex3 months ago

Arturo Soriano, We all want it for ages, my controller doesn't work after last update and Pixonic say they don't support emulator :(

Type-133 months ago

For cheaper bots, you could defray the difficulty of upgrading by allowing people to trash a copy of the bot to instarank up another of the same. Otherwise, what are all of us going to do with these dozens of gepards?

Timmy Muradov3 months ago

That’s some good news!! One extra small thing that I think most players will want is FULL CONTROLLER SUPPORT. Especially on my Steelseries Nimbus controller for iOS! If you guys could add controller support that would be awesome

TERMINATOR. 18263 months ago

WWR we are fighting with you guys to give us an extra slot for upgrades but you are thinking of making it more lengthy processes but idea of making bots cheap is good plz they take long time for upgrades so don't make it long

Blood Eagle3 months ago

We have enough silver, we need to be able to use silver to speed up upgrades and purchase weapons/Bots.
Presently we have to use gold to speed up upgrades. There needs to be a balance between silver/gold. Ex. Upgraded takes 100 gold or 1000 silver.

blazegamer3 months ago

Else redo hangar deck reward again

HEAVYWEIGHT3 months ago

Another great change would be to have the ability to paint our bots and weapons and personalize them. no skins but an editor that you can choose any specific part of bots or weapons and assign colors (and possibly stickers) where you want them, like when you are pimping out a car in GTA V.

{CYT}Cmeg3 months ago

I want to thank WR for increasing the speed of the Griffin a little bit. I don't like the idea of when the Griffin is taking damage, the Griffin starts to craw along slower, giving the Dash Bots etc., an even better chance of the Kill. I think also if one (Griffin) slows down when damaged, the all Bots should slow down. Personally My experience has been that the Dash Bots and their weapons are superior to begin with. They are so quick and fast, we are lucky if we are able to destroy them. The Inquisitor with its ability to Jump and land (5 seconds) without taking any damage at all imho is not a fair advantage. We should be able to manually target and give the Inquisitor damage as long as there is no obstructions. The Hover when in the air, does take damage. Just an observation and info.

♰ βΔŦŦŁ€ ΔŇG€Ł ♰3 months ago

This should be interesting.
Though I'm not clear on taking longer to upgrade. Do you mean the cost of upgrades will go up? Or that the upgrade times will be longer? If it's the latter, then gold will be more useful to speed things along. If you mean it will cost more silver to upgrade items, then that sucks badly. I fear it could mean that, due to the sticker shock on upgrade cost on the recent new items. Like raven & flux etc.

Zex3 months ago

Domination is The main core and mode of this game since start! PLEASE make it always separate and available like once before, so we can play as many of it as we want in a row.

P.S. m
Make us a trash box where all the weapons and bots we have but don't use or want can be there and not in main screen. It can also help to fast delete all trash content at once and perhaps show current value of the items in bin. Thx

Stop messing with stuff that isn't broken.

FIX THE TANKING ISSUE! because TANKERS

FIX THE PLASMA BUG!!!!!!!! This is a priority!!!

FIX TARGETING, tired of jumping in my spectre to shoot someone only to have my rockets fire at some fool 600m away because your targeting thought that was a better idea than the guy shooting at me 200m away...

FIX MATCHMAKING - Bring back hangar based matchmaking which would alleviate the tanking issue and also means that I'll be able to play in light bots again vs other players in light bots if I want to. The game has become tedious having to always try and be on the blistering edge. I miss being able to throw in some different bots and play a different tier. I paid good money for the gepards that are rusting in my hangar never to be used again.

GET RID OF RIGGED GAMBLING if only to shut up the fools who get angry for not winning. SMH.

Pixonic, there is so much wrong with this game that you do not address, you just keep pumping more and more overpowered bots and weapons into the game that there is absolutely no balance any more. It's hard to be competitive if you haven't dropped money on spectres and shocktrains. It's nothing to do with skill now, just peekaboo laser tag and it's BORING.

There aren't any tough nail biting last second games like there used to be. It's all just damage whoring now with no sense of team and what's a beacon? Meh, don't need it...

And finally SHOCKTRAINS???? WTF were you thinking? This from the guys that introduced the aweful stutter step robot le shuffle for the sake of realism?? How realistic is an intelligent laser beam that hits an enemy, damages it some how, and then manages to seek another target and rinse and repeat... That's just dumb. And in a team based game to kill the will to play as a team?? Doubly dumb. You ruined team play with this one weapon. Killed my clan becuse squadding just meant you'd face wave after wave of shocktrains. Worst move ever.

[.SK]Sokar.svk3 months ago

Great idea, but why double Destrier upgrade time? One would think you can pull more of the low tier bots into gameplay by shortening their upgrade times, not increasing them. Same for cost on the low tier bots, one does not acquire the amount of silver needed to max out Destrier in a Bronze league. Yet I'd like to see them maxed out occasionally.

Willm24133 months ago

"Customize gameplay the way you want" where are my healing guns!?

Erik Nash3 months ago

Heres a better idea for the developers leanr to make the game balanced meaning higher lvl players should not be matched against lower lvl players. Also noone has talked about the gold in the game youget more silver than gold so why not make it to where you can exchange silver for gold, also you need to change back some of the robots that use the energy point to bu them instead of gold as well. For god sakes get rid of all the gambling in the game this is crap this game is being ruined with that. THIS IS A BRAWLER GAME not some casino game with robots.
Take a look at any other game that has to deal with the same genre, you dont see gambling in it do you no.... you see people earning the stuff they want. Take a look at Titanfall series no gambling but youhave to earn what you want meaning yousave up your credits you get from battles.
This game used to be really fun when i got it a few years ago and now its gotten dragged down by campers and gambling mechanics you have in the game...and lets not forget all the hackers and modders you see playing now.
So yeah ..if your going to make real changes get rid of the new bots and weapons straight forward they are overpowered and you really cant win against people that use them, think of the players and listen to what they say and stop giving false hopes when someone reports people as well.

Anthony Cohenour3 months ago

This is just my personal opinion, but the system of getting pieces for some weapons and robots is ridiculous. Buying the pieces should just got silver, not real money. Also, the coin system for the roulette is kind of annoying. The upgrades take a but longer that they should. Other than that, it's good.

Asad3 months ago

Everything will be available but if u want to dominate u have to gear up yourequipment!!!
But I am sure if module introduced the game balance will lost............if a overpowered bot like haechi or Spectre use module what will be the old-school boots....already these are dominating
And difficult to face with old school bots. So before introducing module think twice about the game balance.........

Thanos75 3 months ago

Shocktrain range is 500m the resulting hit should not be allowed to go past 500 meters and hit eveything within 150 meters. There should be a limit as to how far the subsequent energy Burst can travel. If the initial range of the weapon is 500 then the energy shouldn’t go further than that.

Dagowood19043 months ago

Pixonic developers, First i want to Thank You for The GAME ALL OF YOUR HARD WORK !! BUT ALSO A BIGGER THANK YOU FOR THE KUMIHO COMPONENTS IN SUPPLY DROPS! It so Much fun to Run & at the same time not as easy as it looks! Inquisitor didn’t get all the Components at update time so I cannot give my opinion. The new temporary mode skirmish is cool , 4 trebs on a GI Paton & 4 thunders that gets 10 ⭐️ stars.! HERE MY 2 CENTS SUGGESTION! Because it seems like players are not spawning back in at times in a tuff battle! No doubt it is happening some times. ( The in Battle player Icons that show how many people are on red or blue team. Put additional Icons below each players for each bot they started with. So if they have a 3 slot Hanger,there would be 3 Icons.And a 4 slot hanger 4 ! It would be nice to know! I don’t know if that’s asking to much? Here’s Feed back on some other stuff. Carrier map and the Space ship the upper deck is TO DARK BOTS BLEND IN & it could use a little less Cluster up there. Space Ship to dark inside BOTS Blend in! ( I KNOW THAT YOU GUYS GET ALL KINDS OF CRAZY SUGGESTIONS AND YOU CAN NOT PLEASE EVERYONE. The Player Icons would let a player know if they are really the last player when SUDDENLY THERE THE WHOLE RED TEAM IS ON THEM AND EACH TIME THEY RESPAWN THEY CAN LOOK UP AND KNOW THAT SOME SPINELESS ,HEARTLESS,COWARD IS WATCH YOU FIGHT YOUR ASS OFF,) Again “ THANKS PIXONIC TEAM AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY “🎂

Dennis Venezia3 months ago

I like the changes. ZNow, p Please fix the chat system. It is antiquated. Also, I should be able to tell who is in a battle and who is at the hangar for squad invites. Put a red or green dot red in battle green free to do a squad next to those online.

Dwayne Hicks3 months ago

Strong steps. I would also recommend moving to a Battle Value system that determines experience earned by measuring the battle values of the mech firing and the mech getting hit. A pilot with a Level 12 robot and Mk2 weapons would make almost nothing when firing on a Level 1 robot with level 1 weapons. Conversely, the low ranked robot would achieve maximum XP for hitting the high-level robot.

This is great but practice is over. Please develope Word Wars and Clan Campaigns so we can put our hangers to the test completeing solo and clan campaigns and go to war against other factions where we actually gain control of the map and resources we setout to conquer and control. Love this game. Keep up the good work and develope the new features so we can take our bots to a real war for gain.

Hszyhss OK major3 months ago

Details on this aren't quite clear. If the cost of upgrade is reduced, is the same true of the speed up using Au?
Like so many players, I hate tankers. Hate hate hate. They ruin any game that you are playing, either because they are absent when you need them, or they are blasting you to bits, and you end up with a false record of your efforts. I know someone else has suggested it, but why let a tanker leave the highest league they get to? Why not keep players within a league of what they get to, e.g a silver one could drop to silver 2 but no lower. If someone is still trying to tank, reduce their rewards when they do play properly until they complete something like 100 games with 95% completed games in which they must achieve at least 30% of the leading damage maker of the team or be top two beacon capper.
Now that some people have more than one hangar, penalise them if they put out a hangar with fewer robots than normal. OK if one has 5 and the other has 4, but if they put out a 1 bot hangar, take 25au or 100k Ag off them. And if they do it again, make 50au or 200k Ag.
I like the idea of shock train limit of 500m, no matter what. Even within 500m, why should the energy be allowed to be travel 400 then 150, then 100, 150 then another 100, that's more than 500, so the energy shouldn't go that far.
I'd like to see where my strengths are, in terms of maps, battle modes and robots. An efficiency chart or similar. Especially if you could take out your best and worst performance.
As they say, over and out.

JagcatRSP3 months ago

I rather the upgrades cost more than wait longer for times to finish upgrades. That’s already extensive enough. Please reconsider that. If anything all the upgrade times should go into levels 10 and higher.

JagcatRSP3 months ago

Zex, Quite honestly. I think they should all the game modes should be available to choose from. So I mostly agree with you.

DoodleBugger3 months ago

I think easier acquisition is the way to go because it addresses having to buy and level up all Silver weapons just to earn enough Gold to gamble in WRoyale to get components. If newer accounts have to grind too much, they'll just leave and play Battle of Titans, Battlegrounds, Overwatch, or Fortnite because it's too frustrating to keep being pushed up to Gold/Diamond and all you have is Carnage is Griffin while tankers have 3 Haechis and 2 Spectres. Better to leave and start on BoT instead. But once we stock up a hangar, it's going to be a grind to upgrade, so Pixonic shouldn't make it too grinding to go from Gold -> Masters or else 9 to 18 month players will leave as well, again Battle of Titans, etc.

Pixonic, please address the LEVELING UP TOO FAST problem. Players Tank because, like me, they get to Master 2/3 and still have Level 9 robots and weapons. That should never happen if the Win/Loss points were more balanced. +16 for a win and beacons is way too much. -26 is way too little for a loss.

I keep going up, but can no longer earn any Gold because everyone else has Mk2 Level 12 stuff. They are doing 2x more damage every shot they take. My scores are like 600K while everyone else is doing 1.2M. There's no reason an average player that doesn't spend $200/month on WR to upgrade stuff should be playing against fully maxed out accounts. A 1st place win should get you like +8 (half of what it does not) while a last place loss should get you -32 (a little less than double what it does now). Leveling up too fast is part of the TANKING problem. If the up/down balancing were more even, you would have natural game play distribution instead of having to address Tanking with other out-of-battle motivations.

Pinky Stiletto 3 months ago

Thank you WR! I see tons of negative comments, but I love this game and am having a blast. I recently earned my Inquisitor. I only spent $4.99 U.S. dollars for the last pieces I needed because I was impatient. I also earned a Kumiho before that. I am only 1300 pieces away from earning a redeemer and recently earned two scourges. I have no idea why so many cry that it’s not fair. I thank you so much for making a way with WSP to attain pieces and the chests and the boxes you can open. I’m excited for the next update! As for tankers, this is still an issue but hopefully you’ll come up with a way to make it impossible to climb down the League unless you have legitimate losses. Thanks again!

BigXIICowboy3 months ago

This is looking very bad for players. Longer upgrades times and modules? What a nightmare! Sorry for being so negative, but Pix you just don't have any credibility anymore. I think another slap in the face is coming.....

Yuri Yamanaka3 months ago

D15c0nn3ct, Upgrade times can be sped up with gold which isn’t too hard to get. However, components are really hard to get. So, as far as balance goes, I say this is fair and I agree that it is in the right direction. More access to weapons overall.

Fearsum Engine3 months ago

I would say I am happy about this, but after you lied to us so many times before this, I no longer have any faith in your words...
You took away matchmaking based on hangar composition. You nerfed silver to force us to purchase gold. You scolded us for using gepards, then made a new form of them, DASH BOTS, but since you were raping us for $100+ to get them, it was ok by your standards. You introduced Shocktrains knowing they were too powerful, but once again, since you were raping your customers for cash, you didn't care. You have made all new weapons and bots a pay cash ONLY to get, no more silver, gold, or wsp purchases allowed as you no longer give a damn about your product, only money. You introduced "gambling" to get items and rigged the games so they don't play by chance, but by your rigged systems that screws players. You continue to outmode older bots and weapons to force players to try and get new content. You have destroyed most clans with your greed, (and forced many hardcore fans to leave). You incorporated a matchmaking system that rewards ONLY players who have spent hundreds or thousands of dollars. And you repeatedly say, "We are listening...", when you really don't give a damn.
So, as I said, I will believe it when I see it. I have no faith in your company anymore to try and produce a good and fun game based on skill.

DoodleBugger3 months ago

{CYT}Cmeg, You CAN already manually target an Inquisitor. You just need to be using Thunder, Storm, Gust, or Punishers and be at the same vertical level (Noricum and Zenit work also, and you can splash with rockets if target is against a wall). I've killed plenty of Inquisitors with a Thunder / Gust / Strider. It's part of the game balancing. The bullet weapons do more damage up close, 2x to shields, and manually target everything. Plasma, energy and missiles can't hit in stealth mode. It's a motivation to use bullets, or else everyone will be using energy weapons.

JagcatRSP3 months ago

Erik Nash, I don’t know. My experience has been different man. I’ve won and earned some pretty awesome Robots and weapons. So I can’t say I agree with your comment. I can understand some of the frustration though. I feel some of the weapons are overpowered. Which makes it highly unfair. No matter how skillful you are some weapons you can’t beat. The Orkan,Taran,Zeus they should have a higher rate of cool down. Some newer weapons should be more effective. The time limits for cool down aren’t great on these new weapons.

Dsnipe3 months ago

This will be very nice cause i am very close to the inquiseter and kamiho so this will very much advantage me in the game. Keep up the good work Pixonic

Annie Roso3 months ago

All this really really does is widen the already massive divide between the full mk2 maxed clans and everyone else. And since there aren’t enough mk2 maxed players at the top, we will continue to be used as fodder for those players in champion league while it will now cost more and take longer for us to upgrade the bots/weps they finally made more accessible. WTF, Pixonic. FAIL.

khinetic3 months ago

Stupid idea - it will not stop tanking gameplay, and only makes it harder for new players to level up, making it even easier to fight tankers. Just nerf Shocktrain and Haechi, and the Spectre doesn't need 4 medium weapons. Do the right thing already!!!

Sebastian Dolorier3 months ago

Hi pixonic! I love war robots and have spent well over $100 towards the game. I have a question- i know workshop 2.0 is coming soon (hopefully) but right now, earning workshop points takes a lot of patience and time. I was wondering if next update, you could add workshop points in chests. It would really mean a lot to me. Thanks

Nightfury3 months ago

Sebastian Dolorier, well, the whole point of changing the WSP 2.0 is to get rid of WSP and replace them with components. I dont think they will add wsp to boxes, since they are trying to get rid of them.

Yhwh Islord3 months ago

Hmmmm, at first glance this seems great, but it solves one problem and makes another worse.

It helps with the issue of accessibility. Players can now acquire bots and weapons they desire, BUT... as we all know, bots and weapons are usable until they are at the level needed for the league you are in.

Being in champs... that means minimum lvl 10, but ideally lvl 12 or lvl 10 (mk2).

For players not wanting to spend money on gold to speed up upgrades, this is going to be a nightmare. Currently I own multiple tarans and orkans that aren't leveled, 7 or so storms that I haven't even touched, a lvl 6 strider, a second inquisitor currently at lvl 4, I'm using component deals to earn my first spectre (only 50% toward it now)... and maybe 15% of my bots/weapons are MK2 to lvl 11-12.

So if PIX keeps releasing bots/weapons at the speed they are... your problem is going to be upgrades. And if you haven't noticed, with every release item upgrades keep getting longer.

To upgrade a griff to lvl 12 for example was 15 days.... to UPGRADE A RAVEN IT IS 58 DAYS!!!

THAT IS ALMOST 4x LONGER!!!

With only 1 upgrade queue, Pix is going to make waaaaaaaaaay more money on F2P players who aren't patient enough to wait for their bot to upgrade. A FULLY maxed Raven will take 116 DAYS to UPGRADE to lvl 12 MK2 --- OR 31% of the YEAR!!

One bot - 1/3 of the year without upgrades for 1 BOT!

Sorry this is so long, but I'm thinking this isn't going to be good news. Players that already drop $200-300/mo on this game will now get bots/gear earlier that everyone and be able to pay to speed up upgrades.

If you want to have a storm/gust Raven it will take you almost HALF the year to get to MK2 lvl 12 (maxed).

I could be wrong... but get ready to have to pay more $$$ for time upgrades.

Biggest caution is this in my opinion -- The biggest thing that will now differentiate F2P players with other F2P players, will be what builds (weapons/bots) they choose to invest in. If you allocate silver/gold for builds that won't be competitive in 6-9 months, you'll get left behind.

I hope I'm wrong.

Pinky Stiletto , Hi Pinky, I think your comments are great. Sounds like you are very appreciative for some of the recent changes.

In terms of why people are writing negative comments... let me try and illuminate the frustration.

Sounds like you've done a great job earning premium gear - great job. You seem proud that you haven't spent much money doing it, which again, is great. Now imagine you got 3x the gear. Since they will be making it easier, lets say you earned 2-3x more bots/weapons in the same time frame.

Curious to know... how would you feel not being able to play hardly any of them b/c you can't upgrade them quick enough.

Not sure what league you are in, but with the opponents I face, my avg upgrade time for a new bot/weapon is 3-4 weeks (without paying to speed it up).

Sounds strange complaining about having too much gear... but it's an honest dilemma b/c of the rate of new items that PIX is releasing. It's not going to help F2P players catch up (hence Pix's use of the word 'balance') to P2P players b/c F2P players won't be able to use their new items.

Not sure this is a good fix to the problem.

I could be wrong. I hope I am. Would love to hear your thoughts and feedback.

Yhwh Islord3 months ago

Deanom1, I totally share your perspective... would be nice if there was at a minimum a separate bot upgrade queue, and a weapon upgrade queue... but that would decrease the revenue potential for Pix... probably won't be happening anytime soon.

I wrote to the creators last week, about the outrageous prices and how some bots can peak $750 fully loaded, probably much more for the priciest of Bots. I think this is a step in the right direction. I am not upset about the longer upgrade times. They do not want the highest tiers to be accessible anytime soon for newcomers. Knowing I can get the better bots themselves in a shorter timeframe is relieving.

Honestly the components thing has been a joke. 400gold for 300 components, is absolutely obnoxious. However, 400gold for 1000 components, is more reasonable. That means 4000gold for a 10k component bot - doesn’t sound too bad now, does it?

I’m not saying that’s what they will do, but I have hopes they are being honest when they say you will be able to get bots in 1/3 the time. I fully support the creators making bots more affordable, it is an outstanding issue in my perspective, and I speak for many others when I say that.

About the longer upgrade times? That is not a severe issue. I understand they want the tier progression to be slow. However, we are going to see more TANKERS due to this.. since it will take longer to get powerful... So we will see if that becomes a bigger issue now...

Small steps.

This is a nightmare! At first i read "easier to get weapons" and thought " wow finally something good! I may not have to pay! " and then... Double upgrade times... A WHOLE WEEK IS LONG ENOUGH FOR A LVL 12 FUJIN! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? almost a year for a maxed fury. Why cant the players get what we ask for? We just wanted the game to be fun. And yet here we are getting mowed down every day by a shocktrain spectre. There is no BALANCE...

I hate tdm and king of the hill & being forced to play them is B.S. AND YOU PIXONIC KNOW THIS. You know you can put them in separate modes! WHY DONT YOU PUT SELECT BUTTONS FOR EACH AND SEE WHICH ONES GET SELECTED THE MOST AND KEEP THEM? AND the longer upgrade times are you CRAZY? It already takes 15 days and 4 hours to upgrade 1 ORKAN TO LVL 12. So 1 month for 2 weapons and you can only update 1 weapon at a time.so a 5 slot hanger and lets use 5 Griffins for example and lets not forget the other 2 weapon slots each Griffin has and not to mention the amount of silver it takes,,,,,AND ACQUIRING SAID WEAPON 1200 GOLD EACH,,,,, THATS 5 MONTHS ALREADY!!! And what about the other weapon slots? That’s atleast 4 MORE MONTHS. DO ALL OF US THE PLAYERS A BIG FAVOR,,,DONT UPDATE THE GAME SO MUCH!!!!! JUST STOP WITH THE CRAZY ROBOTS AND WEAPONS ALREADY AND THE EVERY OTHER MONTH DRASTIC CHANGES!!!!! THE CARRIER MAP SUCKS AND THE ONLY REASON WHY IS THERES TO MUCH CRAP ON THE UPPER DECK. FOR SOME REASON JUST LIKE THE INSIDE OF THE SPACE SHIP MAP IT VERY CLOSE TO THE COLOR OF THE ROBOTS!!!So it makes it very hard to tell what you are shooting at.AND THE Respawn buttons after your bot gets killed are so small they don’t activate you have to get the stylist to try to push the buttons because you’re so small so I’m cussing you guys out because I’m trying to get back in the battle do you guys look at these when you put these on their try it out on the phone I mean you do a great job with this game but you’re screwed it up. But basically you’re letting us know What you’re going to do and pretty much doesn’t matter what we say what we think it will be like I need you always say you’re listening and it matters even do you live streams and it’s a trip because you seem so sincere and honest but you were a robot royale whatever it is the card game like the one player said it’s pretty much a scam it start at the lowest price and just gradually goes up close the next dose the next does the nexus consistently may come on you guys you have Russian pride don’t you let’s keep it real. It’s a great game but it’s getting worse all the time for so many weapons out there now on the battlefield you don’t know what to expect and it sucks. Team death match and king of the hill wouldn’t be so bad if you get rid of some of the barriers. And like I said the carrier Deck , With everybody’s custom names and the health bar and all that cluster on that deck it makes it hard to see the robots it sucks I hate that map I wish I could skip it but anyways yeah the colors just about like the robots but I guess you guys know that and more less it was put that way to make it harder for the player right anyways thanks I’m sure you probably don’t care to read this crap but you’re a longer of great times crazy keep screwed up because I need to quit . Because I play too much. You can call me if free player. But your ads they pay for a lot of stuff. They bring in a lot of money and you know they do. But with a guy putting in 12 hours a day or more playing this game I’m not stensing it being free anymore. Love the game but you’re blowing it no disrespect meant. Thank you very sincerely

D15c0nn3ct, some thoughts to ponder.

Current upgrade extension trend illustrated below (before article mentions FURTHER extending them):

Time to get Griffin to MK2 lvl 12 = 30 days
Time to get Raven to MK2 lvl 12 = 116 days (1/3 of year).

What is the point of being able to acquire the gear you want if you have to PAY to be able to use it?

My underlying assumption is excited players with new gear will not wait the entire upgrade time before playing their bot, which will lead to having to spend more $$$ on gold to speed up upgrades.

Maybe?

Welcome your feedback, thanks!

D15c0nn3ct, yes... utter craziness. Can you see why players might be a bit upset about it being extended? https://warrobots.net/en/robots/37

I’ve been grinding the event chests and to be honest, I got good loot. 3 stalkers, 2 docs, 1 Gareth, and so on. Drop rates improved for things in my opinion. Upgrade times being longer is fine as it can be solved with gold and gold isn’t the hardest thing to get. Components used to be impossible or way too hard to get before the anniversary event but now they’re kinda reasonable with the event going on. I say that being able get new slightly OP weapons and robots faster is a fair deal in exchange for some upgrade time rebalances. War robots used to be extremely pay to win but this new update will make it maybe 5-10% better of a game than before. Depends on how they take it. Had this game since the time when desterier and Gepard had different models. I stil do enjoy the game and hope it improves even further.
If I were to say a negative about the new tweak for upgrade times, I’d say that it’ll increase the gap between new players and veterans by a bit. Should be fine as they don’t go overboard with it though.

iNv4d3rZiM3 months ago

This is about as fair and balanced as Fox News.

Honestly though, as a business, pixonic exists to make money, plain and simple. While it’s entirely possible the developers were st one point driven to provide players with an awesome experience, and they’ve succeeded in some areas, in the end it’s about dollar signs. So people get mad about getting screwed and an entirely unfair component system and upgrade time/costs (and I think it’s absolutely absurd as well) but you can thank the surprIsingly large group of players willing to fork over hundreds if not thousands of dollars to upgrade. Pix has done their homework, or they have consultants. They’re maximizing their profit with the current system, indicating there’s a hell of a lot of players willing to spend, and they they’d make less money by selling cheap to the rest of us.

Face it, it’s supply and demand, and kills the experience for those of us who can’t afford to be competitive. Welcome to pay-to-play.

Dliver, But they are countering the longer upgrades with easier to get items, that will lose them money because there won’t be as much temptation to buy good weapons. Why is everyone so sceptical?

Federico Eidelman3 months ago

Nooooo wtf that’s the exact opposite of what I’ve been wanting and I know plenty of people that feel the same... way to please new or potentially new players/customers while completely sh**ing on your loyal customer base... we are the ones you should tailor these dang updates, not some potential-maybe-he-will-play-WR
-someday soon fresh meat. What I mean is that these new players are the only ones that will exploit this update, while people that have been playing for some time already have all robots and equipment they need, it’s just on very low levels due to very low chances to acquire significant amount of silver and then gold to fastforward/skip waiting time.
So what we really need isn’t halved time robots acquisition but cutting down the silver cost of higher up upgrades ( by 4-5 times less ) and also cutting down then waiting time (by 10 times lol ) of those upgrades to take effect; unless of course, you make gold more and I mean MOOOOREEE available ... heck, I think it’s super unfair that youve removed the ability to multiple upgrade sites, so all those players that benefit and have maxed out gear are trolling leaving the 80 +percent of the rest with their thumbs up their bum waiting for the never ending grind and wait time to get to level 9 for anything.
To recap:
1. Cut Wait times on upgrades, or cut gold amount to skip.
2. Bring back ability to multiple upgrades system, cap it at like at least 3-4 at one time , or
Give us lots more ways to acquire lots of gold without purchase.
3. Value real world clients first and before any potential for growth (bringing in new players)

P.s. don’t say I wasn’t flexible because I’ve even given you guys two choices (the OR) that could be chose from and not just a demand :) hope someone in the development team reads this and seriously evaluates the pros and cons... I hope to hear 👂 good news. ૐ

Listen pixonic I luv this game , but a few things, stop forcing us to play crappy games like king of the hill etc , I come here to blast metal, not chase after beacons with slow ass robots . Let us pick what game we want to so we can fully enjoy the experience, free up the game play so we can choose. Secondly your robot prices are disgusting, this is not PlayStation or another big format, it’s an app game on mobile units , stop being greedy. Thirdly making upgrades longer is plain stupid , they already take long as hell, and lastly try making the match maker a bit more even , why am I playing with players that are so powerful I cant even get a few shots off before I get killed , pointless. Also what’s point of clans if you can properly interact with other clans and look at their players and bots , I want to see a full list of clans , also the set up for clan communication is weak as hell. Mabye make a game where u can only enter with a full clan , apart from that game is fun , but being forced to play the shitty games i personally don’t like is really putting me off,

{CYT}Cmeg, It is possible to hit the Inquisitor if you aim manually. I do think the stealth is a bit over kill when landing. Tho I can see why u would need it. If u hit a ceiling or something then u have a chance to get away on foot. But I think the timer should not start when you land but when you jump. Just my thoughts.

Switcher LP, They have this thing called, breaking promises, often and when it suits them. They make them to try to get the players that are on the borderline of quitting, to hang on that little bit longer to see those promises fulfilled. Most of the time, they let time erase them. Other times, they seem to forget making them. Rarely does one come to fruition, but usually when it does, it's very different than the original promise. It's good to ss those promise to compare to the result later on. If there is one.

So it doesn't matter if you make it accessible for me to acquire 3 Flux faster... I'll be forced to pay... or wait 75% of the year for 3 weapon upgrades!

Swaul, I don't know if you read it properly, but they said weapons and bots you already have wont be affected by the upgrade changes so your don't need to worry about things taking longer for your current upgrades.

None of this means a thing until gameplay issue are addressed. Stop tanking by booting the chronic ones from the game. Fix matching by using player's current hangar strength as the main, not the only as it is now with league position, determining factor in match ups for battles. Allow only a certain percentage of high level equipment in a player's current hangar, for battles in the lower leagues. It will stop most of the chronic tankers from abusing the weaker and newer players, and also from taking the battle rewards that those players would win otherwise. That would also help with the low number of stronger players needed in the higher leagues, which would help with the screwed up match ups that we constantly see. One battle is full of low league players, the next is full of higher league, no consistency. It's schizophrenic. That doesn't make it interesting, just aggravating. Stop this annoying random battle idiocy. It's one of the main causes of tanking. Most players don't like it, so they they just show for battles they dont like or have the hangar setup to compete in. I know they think it cause players to buy more hangar space, but the devs are wrong. Not very many players are not willing to spend that much. I'm tired of seeing the excuse from the devs little news delivery people, too afraid to speak with us one on one I guess, that there aren't enough players to let us choose our battle modes, yet they keep throwing new modes that are redundant or just plain crap. We want our choices back. We want our choices back in the daily tasks as well. Why give us tasks that don't have anything to do with how we have our hangars set up or where our skills lie? Forcing us to complete tasks that we aren't suited for, only causes frustration. Why? I hear so many friends and squad mates complain about all these issues, at least the ones still playing. These issues have made many of them quit the game. Either one or all together. The devs just don't care. They don't keep promises, and have lied in the past about fixing issues for us. They call us cattle, and most of us don't say a word. They will continue doing these things to us, until more players speak out. If you don't speak up and show your displeasure then quit crying in squad chat to your teammates about how horrible everything is.

Atelang , "Beacon rush was introduced, and it was, and is, the best feature of the game."

That's your opinion, I much prefer Domination as it allows for strategy. BR is just grab beacons, die, wait, drop a bot on a half dead one trying to take the beacon. Basically, mindless red button pushing - any surprise it's Manni's favourite mode?

I am calling B. S. on that! Sounds to me like Silver is getting devalued again. Why should it take longer to upgrade? Pixonic haven't you slapped us in the face long enough? Dump the hugely inflated and over priced component system. This game should be about having fun and developing skills. Not a constant grind for a couple of keys, or 30 pcs of silver.

Here is an idea: along with sliver, we also earn components from our game play. Let us decide what weapon or bot we apply them to. So if you earn 1000 components in game play you can put 250 toward a bot, 500 towards a weapon , etc,etc.

I really like playing this game and I play it several times a day. However I cannot take many more slaps in the face Pixonic.

Words are just words until they are actions. I do not buy anything this company is selling until they fix the rampant unbalance they have caused. And they won't, because they keep getting huge amounts of money from people. At least it seems that way, looking at all the hangars full of dashbots and premium weapons that few of us will ever see. Until then, as soon as Battle of Titans is released to the public, see you on the battlefield. But like I have said, unless Battle of Titans is a flop, this game will be dead except for the people who have invested hundreds or thousands into this game. I am done with this game as soon as a decent competitor is out. And THERE is where I will spend my money.

I am exhausted economically because I have spent an insane amount of money to upgrade fast to keep up against affluent trust fund babies or just plan old lucky to be born rich .....I have spent way too much money and way too much time to be beaten down by someone who has fully upgraded nearly invincible bots. I have been playing for quite some time and have enjoyed the game in the beginning when it actually was just a fun capture the flag game ....there was for quite some time ....a lot of peeps who would randomly get the actual idea of teamwork and strategy was immediately noticed when a wingman or sidekick would follow you and you communicated by motion of what you wanted to achieve and how to capture a beacon and work together to keep it.
I have seen now useless games of king of the hill / skirmish / team death match / free for all.....garbage......senseless no skill strategy gaming .....just push a button damage...
Complete garbage gaming.......why bother.
Beacon rush and domination are the only true way to keep the game alive with .......here is a brilliant idea “PIXONIC” ......wait for it .....wait for it .....how about at least 100 new freakin maps to play on ?!?!?! .......no ....wait I am actually challenging “PIXONIC” developers to a 500 different location map system.......forget about rewards and “pieces” to weapons and horrible long wait times to upgrade......that is just complete waste of time .....allow all players to get what they immediately need to play skillfully and strategically and actually get a chance to set up real teams to eventually lead to maybe possibly a .............freakin worldwide tournament?!!?!?!?
Drop the stupid gameplay of “nuke a caveman”......level out the players with exact matching weapons and bots of what they want and get it now without time being wasted or money wasted.......keeping the same damage levels in place will show each team and player who Actually has skill ......500 new maps of completely different environments and weather would keep every player guessing and each team to actually show ho can be the best........teamwork teamwork teamwork.......stop being a company who just wants money and will find every way to take it away from the player who just wants to have an experience of actual fun and skill........so drop the new bots and new weapons keep the damage system in place keep the existing bots in play from here on out ......enough is enough already let everyone get upgraded immediately to mk12 and superior weapon upgrades immediately.....let everyone choose what and how they want to set up their hangars and let us play on what you........... “PIXONIC” ..........can develope as an incredible platform of 500 different environmental location weather affecting battle fields and let the ......”game evolve”.........don’t pass up this challenge .......you can really lose out here.

OrangeMegatron3 months ago

DEAR PIXONIC...
Did whales started to complain about small diversity of bots to shoot at?
From now on it's going to be a game-wide seal clubbing! Yeah!!!

It already takes many months to bring a full hangar to level 12 and you want to make years instead...
It means any whale or old player using their Level 12 bots and weapons will evaporate any newbie in seconds.

As a beginner I wouldn't stand this and leave the game.
And with players base shrinking it will be more and more common to play against higher league players, so this kind of clubbing will drive more and more people away.

PS. Don't get me wrong - I'm in Masters 3, almost a Champion. I don't really care about me being hammered down as I have my hangar pretty close to the game meta.

It’s a great game but it’s getting worse all the time for so many weapons out there now on the battlefield you don’t know what to expect and it sucks. Team death match and king of the hill wouldn’t be so bad if you get rid of some of the barriers. And like I said the carrier Deck , With everybody’s custom names and the health bar and all that cluster on that deck it makes it hard to see the robots it sucks I hate that map I wish I could skip it but anyways yeah the colors just about like the robots but I guess you guys know that and more less it was put that way to make it harder for the player right anyways thanks I’m sure you probably don’t care to read this crap but you’re a longer of great times crazy keep screwed up because I need to quit . Because I play too much. You can call me if free player. But your ads they pay for a lot of stuff. They bring in a lot of money and you know they do.

I hate tdm and king of the hill & being forced to play them is B.S. AND YOU PIXONIC KNOW THIS. You know you can put them in separate modes! WHY DONT YOU PUT SELECT BUTTONS FOR EACH AND SEE WHICH ONES GET SELECTED THE MOST AND KEEP THEM? AND the longer upgrade times are you CRAZY? It already takes 15 days and 4 hours to upgrade 1 ORKAN TO LVL 12. So 1 month for 2 weapons and you can only update 1 weapon at a time.so a 5 slot hanger and lets use 5 Griffins for example and lets not forget the other 2 weapon slots each Griffin has and not to mention the amount of silver it takes,,,,,AND ACQUIRING SAID WEAPON 1200 GOLD EACH,,,,, THATS 5 MONTHS ALREADY!!! And what about the other weapon slots? That’s atleast 4 MORE MONTHS. DO ALL OF US THE PLAYERS A BIG FAVOR,,,DONT UPDATE THE GAME SO MUCH!!!!! JUST STOP WITH THE CRAZY ROBOTS AND WEAPONS ALREADY AND THE EVERY OTHER MONTH DRASTIC CHANGES!!!!! THE CARRIER MAP SUCKS AND THE ONLY REASON WHY IS THERES TO MUCH CRAP ON THE UPPER DECK. FOR SOME REASON JUST LIKE THE INSIDE OF THE SPACE SHIP MAP IT VERY CLOSE TO THE COLOR OF THE ROBOTS!!!So it makes it very hard to tell what you are shooting at.AND THE Respawn buttons after your bot gets killed are so small they don’t activate you have to get the stylist to try to push the buttons because you’re so small so I’m cussing you guys out because I’m trying to get back in the battle do you guys look at these when you put these on their try it out on the phone I mean you do a great job with this game but you’re screwed it up.

Everyone I play with, has these new robots; I do not! I simply do no see how they are easier to get. I havent gotten a single one yet! And increasing the time to upgrade? We all know what that means.........buy Gold so you can at least get to a level where you don't die immediatey.

Finally, a year ago you said you were working on solutioins to the "tanking issueaa'. I spent probably 80 hours recording each individuals name, name ID, clan ID, etc. and sent this all to Support. That was 9 months ago and nothing happened nor has changed. I simply do not understand tanking because how can you take any joy, after making all your robots level MK2 besides the weapons being MK12 too, when you didn't earn it? And how can you screw over members of a random battle by tanking which leaves our squad with one less player and 5 less robots?

You even had a glitch one night as my internet connection was perfect, and I spent gold and workshop points but did not get the components I purchased. This has happened more than once. And your Support Staff did not nothing? Which is typical because you never have any issues or are you ever incorrect.

So while e veryone is kicking my butt with either new weapons or new robots, I have yet been able to get one! Awhile back, probablly 9 months go, if I used real money to purhase gold, you gave less gold for the same amount of real money spent. And at th same time you increased the silver necessary to upgrde! I was trying to mke my Rog a higher level, finally got the silver, but it was no longer engough as you came close to almost doubleing th price to upgrde my Rog from level 1 to level 12

So you have increased the cost to upgrade. And now your telling us it will take even longer to upgrade? That is a double whammy.

You still have done absolutely nothing to the cheaters who tank. And you keep matching me with Masters and Champions when I am just a diamond. Come on.............

Dliver3 months ago

Really? You've thrown the game way out of balance by putting a bunch of bots and weapons out at a stupidly insane pace and your answer is - Yes we'll make it easier to get them but we'll extend the wait for upgrades to keep it in balance. Just leave the wait times alone. They're fine where they're at. Make it easier for everyone to get the new stuff and time will balance things out.

Do you guys have someone that everytime you come up with a good idea, it's their job to mess it up. Well that's what you are doing. Messing up a good idea by extending wait times on upgrades. By the way give that guy a raise. He's been messing a lot of your decisions lately.

Yuri Yamanaka3 months ago

Junkerreboot , I agree with the part about increasing flexibility with clans.
However, about king of the hill, I do see that many players hate or dislike it (I myself see it as my least favorite mode) but then again, it’s all down to preference and the mode wasn’t so hideous after playing 20+ rounds of it. So maybe implementing a system where you can choose multiple game modes that you are willing to be put into might be a good idea. Although it should have a warning that says decreasing choice of modes will increase wait time significantly.

We all have talked about this before: I would like to see clan gifting improved where you can gift anyone in your clan any part/gold/silver you have. It would give a better incentive for being & staying in a clan. This will also allow clans to support and build up their weaker players. I would like to see this balanced out with who people chronically tank out of games automatically getting kicked out of their clans- clan getting a minus point. My daughter uses my account sometimes and she has left games, and I scold her for it. If you are going to play, I tell her, you must commit. If you are not committed, don't play. Clan gifting (a positive) & clan penalty (a negative) for chronic dumping your games I believe will help (though we all know not perfect) the tanking issues. Please let us gift our clans with what we have! There is no reasons why you would not do this.

tadiho, I quite understand your joy of getting a new bot.
Just keep in mind your level 1 bot will not stand a chance in a fight against the same bot level 12. 12 levels means it's 285% better than you.
And if you will want to get to the level 12, then it will take long weeks to get just 1 robot to it. When you will get there, then maybe you will need some weapons to level up? Let's say 3 slots?
So enjoy the change before it comes...

Pyrotech4423 months ago

D15c0nn3ct, I totally agree with you

Shocktrain is too op. I recommend one of these balancing options:
1. 25% buff, range nerf 350m, chain effect range nerf to 100m (this wsy, it's more of a close range hide-and-shoot weapon, like orkan
2. 5% damage nerf, chain range nerfed to 100m

having an expensive price tag is actually good for free2play players so that because it's harder to get them, the less op robots there will be on the battlefield. I

Doubling the time it takes for upgrades means it will take 16 entire days to upgrade a raijin from level 11-12, which means it will take more than 2 months to upgrade to level 12 mk2 without speeding upgrades. It's just not right. You look at other games and level 1-2 takes even as little as 30 seconds! And if they do decide to increase upgrade time, at least make it cheaper to speed up upgrades.

400 gold for 300 components is insane, but comparing prices to older content, the butch used to cost 14000 gold, which is very similar to the cost of that in gold to components, which is 13,600 gold for a new robot plus whatever weapon came with the deal.

Lastly, and most importantly, that plasma and targeting issue does need to be fixed.

Big fat whoooppdie doo. So I can get a bot quicker for the tankers to kill. And to help the tankers out, it'll take me longer to upgrade it, likely for 4 times the silver it would have cost. But there's hope, we'll get double silver. /sigh.

PREACHEROFTHETRIUNE , Yeah, sure.
The idea is nice. But I get Pixonic's point of view.
When you will be able to gift it, then there will be a black market.
Farmers/professional players will join your clan, give you a Shoctrain Spectre Mk 12, then leave the clan. Of course you will have to pay for this bot via money transfer to the player.
Easy enough?

If interested. Thanks!

Pyrotech4423 months ago

Yhwh Islord, If this is with all these play2win players instantly with level 12 mk2 equipment, then just raise up the price to buy gold. Currently, with $300 worth of gold you could get a new robot plus plenty of 💰💰💰 left over. Gold is way too cheap for what it can do, and if you disagree with me then just stop spending money on this game at all.

Oh, and btw, some games have in-app purchases that can cost up to a million dollars, so be thankful that no in-app purchases in this game are that expensive.

Scene Smith3 months ago

Oh no way dudes, you ruined it by giving out free Kumiho and Inquisitor bots last month, then ruined it by random mode and now you want to give out robots but not allow us to level them up on time? This update is not necessary and will really harm the game. So far it is has been better since you removed comps and stuff from other easy places to reach on the shelf. But if you want a re balance how about all those guys you removed their gold from gold loading but let them keep their bots. How about you remove their 13,000$ USD hangars they did not pay for.

Chris Redfield3 months ago

Pinky Stiletto 3 months ago

Yhwh Islord, Hi YHWH is lord,
I can appreciate what you are saying about upgrading items. Since I only started in January, around the time they had the Lunar event, I realize that I’m not coming from a ‘burned out’ perspective. It would be nice if we could upgrade two things at a time. That would help. I don’t try to get every little weapon that comes out. I pick and choose what to upgrade and go after.
My highest weapon/bot so far is level 10, most are 9 and some 8. Since I can only fight with 5 bots at a time I try to upgrade the stuff I’m using immediately. I don’t have a second hanger yet, and it won’t be anytime soon that I’ll be able to get it since it’s very expensive. I have to prioritize.
The whole tanker issue is real and is frustrating.
As for trying to compete with masters, I don’t. I’m in diamond league and I just enjoy the battles as they come and try to challenge myself with beating my own personal bests.
I just quit playing a game I was into for three years, Galaxy Legend, because it is only pay to play with no chance at all to get anything free. It didn’t start out like that, but it evolved into that. And Tap4fun got super greedy. Each new Commander literally costs $500.00 U.S. dollars on up. That’s not including everything to augment the ships....it’s a nightmare.
So the fact that Pixonic is 4 years old and still providing free to play and low money players a way to get premium gear is exciting to me.
Part of the problem in Galaxy Legend was the players themselves. They love to gamble. And a lot of GL is just gambling for stuff. So the players cried about the prices increasing, yet they paid for everything that Tap offered. So they were part of the problem.
I see a lot of the issues that players are complaining about here are not Pixonic issues but player issues. There are some very greedy players in these battles. They care nothing about team work, and only about themselves. A lot of the battles lost are due to players not playing as a team. So I put this out here to the players, be a good team mate. Fight in packs and pairs. Help give cover to your team mates going for the beacons. Don’t race your team mate to the same beacon, if you see them going for one, go get a different one. These are player issues.
Tanking is a Pixonic issue due to greedy players who are selfish ruining the game play for players who are playing fairly.

Dliver3 months ago

It all comes down to another way to make more money. By dragging out the upgrade times they're just making it more tempting to spend money on speed ups. It's as simple as that. It has nothing to do with rebalancing the economy of the game other than balancing it in their favor so as to dig deeper in your pockets.

Atelang 3 months ago

Expert level III player here with just over 2,300 victories. When I started playing, the predominant meta was a game with various bots and weapons with different abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. The challenge was to build a hangar that was competitive in a variety of circumstances dictated mostly by the map being played. Beacon rush was introduced, and it was, and is, the best feature of the game. It provided a quick means to direct confrontation on the battlefield and reduced the maddening commutes from the original spawn locations. Unfortunately for Pixonic, it allowed some of the old bots and weapons to remain competitive.

So, here come the multiple hangars and ability to select hangars AFTER the map is revealed. All the spenders bought additional hangars, bots and weapons tailored for different maps. So, here I am with my original collection of bots and weapons, that I'm still trying to upgrade, facing hangars of long-range weapons on the larger maps. If that wasn't enough, TDM was introduced that further enhanced the ability of teams to sit back with hangars of long range weapons and hydras. Multiple times I have lost my first bot without being able to fire a shot, and a couple of times have even lost two bots with no shots fired.

I have no level 12 bots or weapons yet, and I just calculated the time and silver required to upgrade each bot and weapon by one single level. It will take 64 days of actual upgrade time (not counting any slack time) and 382 million silver for this upgrade, but I'll finally have some level 12 equipment in ONE hangar. The only reason I'm still playing is the hope that 2018 brings some decent changes for the loyal, if somewhat frugal, player. If we're going to be forced to play TDM and King of the Hill as part of a continuing rotation, I'm done. I'm completely SICK of these modes. This is no longer fun to play. It's more like a daily chore that's required to obtain resources for hopefully better days ahead.

Potential Improvements
1. Provide opportunity for simultaneous upgrades. While I'm trying to upgrade my old hangar, I could at least be upgrading some other equipment for the future or for another hangar if I ever decide to fork over the 7,500 gold.
2. The additional upgrade feature could be paired with a reduction in premium costs. $10/month for premium AND an additional upgrade slot.
3. Change the pairing algorithm to focus on bots/weapons levels instead of player level. Player skill level is secondary in this game - weapon strength is most important. I guarantee that if any level 30 player was given unlimited access to MK2 Level 12 equipment, they would climb into Champion league within a couple of weeks.
4. For crying out loud, be transparent with your dealings! This slot machine mentality is not a good way to build trust with customers. I have over one million tokens that I'd like to use on a premium bot, but I have no idea if it's possible. I once blew around 10,000 gold obtaining a tempest, which was a complete ripoff.

I'm on the edge Pixonic. Either make some changes that benefit the casual player, or I'm done. Yes, I'm just one player, but I'm sure I speak for many.

Dliver3 months ago

You've got to be freaking kidding me. On the one hand you say we're going to make it easier to get the new bots and then you say - Oh by the way, to keep the game balanced we're going to extend upgrade wait times. That is the biggest crock of horse muck I've ever heard. The upgrade times are well balanced right now. If you want to balance out the game then make it easier to get those bots and leave the upgrades alone. Nature will take it's course and things will balance out. I have to ask - Do you have some department or group that has to take every great idea and somehow has to see how to screw it up? It started with the American bots and first stupidly high prices for them. Then came the dash bots and the crazy insane prices for them plus making it almost impossible for regular people to get them. Then you have let's cram every new bot, weapon, map and mode we can think of down their throat till they puke idea. Now you finally come out with a reasonable proposal then have to ruin it with extending upgrade wait times. There has to be someone in the Dev's who just loves screwing the community over in some way. You've abused us over the last year. Please don't ruin the 1 idea that comes down the pike that is beneficial to us with the awful idea of extending wait times on upgrades.

iDawg3 months ago

I welcome the idea to have the robots and equipment to be more affordable and easy to acquire. Having said that, one might ask how does increasing the upgrading time balance things up?

Things as they are now is that we are sometimes matched against opponents with high level 2017/2018 model robots. If I were to let's say acquire a brand new Bulgasari and takes double the current time to upgrade. How to compete against opponents that already has a Mark2 Bulg? Therefore the still obvious solution is to either spend in-game currency and/or real money to speed up upgrades in order to decently compete.

I would concur with Dliver on maintaining the current upgrade times. It is fine as is. Or please review the Matchmaking criteria.

Cheers,

p.s. your statement -
"For example, Destrier will take twice longer to upgrade, while Rogatka upgrades will be faster."

I think you meant the other way round? Rogatka will take twice longer to upgrade, while Destrier will be faster?

Update is in and... it's so fucked up I'll be surprised if there are any players in the game by this time next week.

Easier to get items that now take upwards of 5 -7 times as long to upgrade. So much for three times as long.

AG costs have spiralled significantly - 5 - 7 times as much as previously, so the Twice as much Silver might as well not have been included as it's just insulting.

That it only effects newly acquired equipment is a flat out lie. That, or the coders are as about as competent as a blind mailman.

Christopher Wormuth, Do you have an Inquisitor? Jc. You are somewhat right. The stealth when landing can be overkill, but mainly when the Inquisitor has really upgraded weapons, otherwise it is still defeatable. Very. You also can outplay them, rather easily, and I have been outplayed lately quite a bit. You are right in that if you hit a ceiling or clip a wall, the extra stealth really gives you a chance at a do-over if you can escape but the time when you land is 5 seconds so if you're not careful, you'll get annihilated.

Dear Pixonic. Thank you for the great game. Can you tell me, why mobile game developers around the world make the same mistake? Are you not doing your research? I Introducing too many currencies was never good for any game. It can be good for your earnings but only for short time, in a long run you're lowering game popularity, loosing precious players and wiping out all the effort and time that has been invested in game development. I played few games from the release date (loved'em) but when changes similar to WR happened I lost interest, and I was one of the top players. The game just became to much, and eventually it turned into a ghost. It doesn't exist for me anymore! I say this because I love WR and realy don't want to see something like this happening to it. And one more thing, can you put "king of the hill" as a saparate mode choice, it shouldn't be with other modes together, it's a completely different reward assessment and I am forced to play this unfair in my opinion game mode. In the random option should be-"beacon rush", "domination" and may be "team deathmatch", everything else should be separate.
Thank you

The entire point in watching an ad is to advance the upgrades time to make the upgrades faster.
If you chose to make upgrades longer, there won't be any point in watching your ad. So much for ads. Right now, that is pretty much all the revenue you can get... anyone buying upgrades or robots for cash right now is a waste of money.. read further down on my comment.

The only reason why your 'announcing' you will make the change to make robots 'easier to get' is because tanking is working... players loosing battles and getting a -22 score is lowering there league which results in a 14,000 victory player in 1800 league. These players DESTROY battles, faster game play, faster battles won, faster the 'ad' refresh, faster the gold, faster the chest keys.. in the end, faster super chests..

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BASICALLY, this game play of 'tanking' is the "short-cut" to playing the game.. FOR FREE!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Eat your heart out you players paying $1,000's in this game.. because players are going to pass you up on there maxed out hangar for free (REAL SOON) and the off balance will RUIN the game.

So question, where is the value for the money these players have spent when you still allow this tanking?

Your result is to have longer times to upgrade because you notice a lot of increased uber hangar population from the results of tanking?

So for you bitching about tankers, shut up! I have been there, filing reports and youtube videos does NOTHING!! I repeat... NOTHING!.

Pix doesn't give a nats ...
BUT when the game starts to off balance.. aka tankers not 'buying'... then it flags there money making system and they start to change.

Unless you change the ENTIRE Match Making System... players are going to lower there league and play the game the way they want to .
But you tamper with your new ideas right now, longer upgrades?.. those ad watchers like me.. Won't give a crap about ads.. there will be no point to watch the ad.. No one is going to be interested to sit and watch
