    At 5 plat, there isn't any incentive to use that elixir anymore. Oh well back to Mt. Fang.

    Man was I enjoying gaining xo while farming gear in SSC for my twink.

    Don't guess I'll be taking my 35 to plasma pyramid for any fun either.

    Elixirs are not the problem...xp-anywhere is a "normal" thing in mmo's, that's not the issue, the issue is on the linearity of xp system which is greatly exposed by the new elixirs. Too lazy to re -explain so I'll just leave it at that. Again, STS rushes something, short-term...if I can compare PL to a plane metaphorically, PL's launch was ok, take off was ok, ascending is a little turbulent which is not that bad but then when you take a look at the cockpit, the pilots are sleeping...XD. The only reason this game gets the award is because nobody else in mobile industry is paying attention, you know why, because they're all in console and PC gaming, most of these game apps are made by bum programmers so the competition isn't really that high, just saying, this "rush" mode by STS is caused by this hype but I want to let you guys back there in STS know that not all of your players "yes" men and that includes me. In fact, I'll play just to watch this game go down the drain. Wake up! These PL players are slowly losing their love goggles and focusing on the game's fundamentals now similar to when you first met your first gf and you just found her so perfect the first few months then eventually everything cute about her turns to "not" cute...parellel comparison, people are now on that realization state where they see the flaws of the game more (when it was in fact there from the start). XP anywhere, again, should have been there from the start, why? Because every other mmo does it and guess what, it works...so people who are complaining xp elixirs now should be removed etc may not have played any decent mmo ever in their gaming lives, hello? that's a tried and tested formula in mmo's now? what's your problem? Classic case of looking at the solution to the wrong problem. This is my read, STS is losing money, why? because hardcore gamers put life into an mmo not casual, PL doesn't have anything to offer to hardcore players except convenience which is not PL's achievement, it's apple's or android. Thank you.

    ...I also love how the initial RAGE about these elixirs, power-levelin, kill count farming, etc. has bizarrely morphed into some sort of argument that the devs are lazy money hungry bums who recycle content and turn a blind eye towards abuse when they can make a buck off of it...

    Before anyone cries that THEY NEVER SAID THAT, Realize that while you have not, I HAVE seen several posts that say exactly that, even if they are not yours.

    It makes me sad, it does...

    No need for Elixirs if they fix xp system...(maybe they're not fixing it so they can retain elixirs)...all you have to do is look at your final fantasies, elder scrolls, your world of warcrafts, your eve onlines, your runescapes, your ragnarok onlines, your guildwars 1 and 2, your darkfalls, champions online...i mean...it's out there, these level up systems are already proven, they can learn a thing or two from them...these guys never had issues similar to PL as far as leveling up and elixirs and stuff like that, most of their issues were thirst of players for new content which is ok since we're actually talkin about moving forward, here in PL, it's like...we never moved forward, just aesthetically develop but still always go back to the fundamentals...it's like a boxer, you can't expect to be world champ without fundamentals...PL doesn't have fundamentals, the xp system is broken that's why elixirs are "not" flying that well now, it's exposed and people think the elixirs are the problem when it's not, it's the xp system, xp-anywhere has been there from the beginning of mmo's and has worked in the past...why not in PL? that's right, because xp system is broken...anyway, thanks.

    I have used my ability to thank peole so I shall say two things:

    1. As Elly, Fluff, and Y have stated: 5 plat = zero usefullness.

    2. Powerleveling will always exist whether we have this elixir or not. I have seen 66's with 2-5k kills and that was a week ago. This elixir neither increased nor decreased the amount of powerleveling.

    exactly, but the price of elixirs went up to 5plat,which really sucks.

    Sucks? It's better than breaking the whole game.
    You do understand 75% of the PL community hates this elixir?
    Posting about how you like it won't help you much.

    This is something simple that even a non developer can understand, why don't they create and do an actual "poll" in a sample size of say 10,000 players ( you claim you have millions, so 10,000 is actually very small ) I'm sure as devlepoers they can find it easy to distribute and require players' feedbacks...now the result, they post in this website for everybody to see. Now wouldn't that be a lot easier? Rather than ey my friends said this, no no no, my friends said this...no no no, my friends did this...bla bla bla. I'm not sure if I'm just too lazy to search, but I haven't seen an "official" poll that caused the changes in the game. Which leads me to believe that STS do not listen to their players...otherwise, this poll is a given and they would proud to show it. Common sense.

    I should just say remove elixir if you are going to raise price. The people who thrasher with it can probably still afford 5 or 10 plat. Just make price stay at 1 or remove. If you make it more, many people may not understand the reason and will argue that you (STS) are just trying to make more money. Not like the old STS. In fact, that's already happened. We don't need it to spread. We want happier players.

    75%,more like 35%.Youd do understand that the most active forum users were the main ones who dislike the elxirs?

    I think the guy overshot the 75%, maybe he was referring to his actual in-game friends, but you gotta respect that. Now, to mediate or to be objective, some sort of official poll must be done, I mean...in my case, 80% of my friends in-game loves elixirs if only they could afford it...but they couldn't. The other 20% are just casual gamers and don't really care much about whatever happens to them in game. My contribution is not really significant because I'm not really friendly...I only have few friends in-game by choice...very small sample size. To give a stand, STS should just create a poll from now on, or, they just tell all their players that they'll do whatever they want to do in the game...no middle ground, either you listen or you don't. Right now it's floating, some say STS listens, some say they don't...so...a simple existence of poll will address that, or a simple statement of "we're currently doin beta versions and game testin" to say we don't need your feedback, we got our guys testing it for everyone...that's just my practical opinion...thanks.

    PS: It's just a game, getting the ban hammer isn't the end of the world, it's more fun when the heat is on than all quiet and boring XD Besides, I read the TOS, so far, I've only violated mild points and was warned accordingly, and consequently I'm now more tamed when I post XD But I still get my points across, no need to react. Well it's a long PS. Thanks.

    Whirl... These elixrs are not breaking anything. And, did you know that the the number of active forum posters only amount to 2 - 5% of the players that play the game.

    The price did go up? HOORAY! THE LEADERBOARDS ARE SAVED!

    I knew I should have wasted more time power-leveling all my poor friends and kill-count spamming my twinks. Now I'll probably only be power-leveling my rich friends and kill-count spamming my main...

    and nothing else has changed...
