    Default Removal of excess FORGED ENERGY KITS!!

    Will it apply to all unused forged energy kits or only the ones forged during this particular event?

    They are all the same, so any unused Forged Energy kits will be removed. If you've been stockpiling, now is the time to use them!

    Oh God that's so bad! I spent a lot time to farm for those energies kits and they are so many to spend but that limited time from my side to play means that so much time is lost as I wont be able to use em all lol.But as said above it is what it is.And I really hoped that tree banner to be a platinum reward and not LB banner.It seemed solo cool.Its a pity I will never see it in my inventory (And no I cant run LB for those thinking that.Too big competition XD)
    And last...... GREEN ARLOR SET for wars(^_^) Yiouuuupiii. (#bluelivesmatter)

    They are giving warning now, so use them or lose them! It was fun to stockpile them, though. Not that I stockpiled that much haha.

    I understand sts wish to generate some revenue but will the amount of necessary runs for the tiers in future events be lowered ? Otherwise ppl who can't speed $ might not even reach gold tier.

    Mmmmmmh
    If next events won’t change the energy drop rate and time to craft, Will be challenging for me to reach my goals (usually plat tier).
    But I can understand why you are doing this.
    Let’s see what happen.
    Btw I suggest as first step to delete just the ingredients, not the forged ones

    What about the Energy Kits we loot from crates? Do they become useless after the event?

    I think the removal of excess energy is better cause it'll make people active and more serious competition

    The horded energy give a distinct advantage to a select few LB runners. Crafted energy kits were never intended to be hoarded, but you know how that goes.

    We'll allow the hoarded ones to be used for this event, but after that we are removing the excess energy so events can star anew each time. We understand that some people who have been stockpiling these kits may not like this. In that case you should use your stockpiles for this event.

    So now the advantage only goes to the players who buy plats.
    Farming those essences was the only way for non Plat players to compete with the others.

    This is not true, you are just stereotyping.
    Instead of now farming energy, farm gold and buy energy kits from auction/people.
    This feels like a better gold sink than any other options.

    But yes, free players will now have to work harder I feel.

    A few of the comments here are correctly addressing things that we can and will evaluate with the removal of excess energy:

    - The crafting time of farmed energy
    - The drop rate of energy essence
    - The score requirements for tiers


    These are all things that have been adjusted because of the issue of hoarded energy. With the removal of hoarded energy, we can look at these changes to make sure that you have a fun experience during an event rather than feeling like you have to hoard a ton of energy just so you can compete in the next event.

    The reduction of crafting time for example sounds like a great future adjustment since players will have to use their energy during the event!

    Note: Because excess energy still remains we likely won't make any of these changes for winter, but we will keep an eye on energy consumption during the event and evaluate before the next!

    I would also recommend higher drop rate of actual energy from event bosses and from crates.

    Thanks STS for removing my thread
    If we aren't allowed to give our insight regarding things why are we able to make post on forums? I made extra sure not come off too negative and to include actual facts.
    Why do you guys give the idea that you only tolerate positive feedback?

    Back to the topic: As I mentioned in my thread, reducing crafting time and increasing drop rate won't help those who are already short on time, before people could farm energy eseense somedays and so on stockpile a few for when needed. This gives them the limited time that they have to mostly do energy runs during the event that they choose to run.
    Stockpiling ahead of time is just like budgeting in a way, you earn X amount of money and it all goes towards basic needs, costs, and so on. If you aren't too cautious you could end up spending most of your money resulting to not having enough money if something were to happen, like car trouble or so. Same goes for stockpiling event. You farm when you do have time because you don't know how much time you'll have during the next event. This is just thinking ahead and is something to be promoted in life as it helps you out a lot.
    Sure the con is that those that have lots of time will farm as many forged kits as they can to gain a leading start at the beginning. But everyone that ran an event for LB knows that that isn't sufficient especially not for a 3 week long event. And for those claiming that P2P has it rough going up against F2P because of this, it's not true at all. Every single player knows that those that spend plat to run an event are usually top 10 and have an extra 100k+ point to spare compared to almost every F2P on LB.
    Removing stockpiled energy simply decreases the F2P threat on LB.
    As someone said above.. This is only more of gold sink in my eyes similar like the failed nightmare maps(most people still run mausoleum, nobody wants to waste gold unnecessarily).
    The thing about a gold sink tho.. is that it makes the rich barely even less rich and it makes the poor even more poor.
    Really dislike the way this game is heading but sticking around with hope that things change.
    I've invested lots of time and effort in this game so it's not something easy to let go. Hence the reasons for most of my threads: improvement. Because I do not want this game to end bad.
