    Does that mean we will be getting less gold overall? Or has the drop value stayed the same as if we were to be running alone (which would be the max payout)

    Same as if you were running alone - only now you can run alone without splitting old... which would actually increase your overall take since you probably would clear faster with friends.

    Question tho,
    Is this only for event or for any map?
    And if event only can it be for the whole maps?

    if you were going to implement this throughout the whole game. then maybe add dmg and armor to mobs equal to how many players are in the map . so solo map 1x player=1x(enemy damage&armor) ,
    2 x players=1.8x (enemy damage&armor)
    3x players=3.6x (enemy damage&player) etc...

    to avoid 1 player running and killing mobs while having 4 devices or bots standing in middle of map "isle of night" with auto gold loot equipped

    As much as I do appreciate the update.

    This will help those lower levels, others wanting to cap to Level 110 and weaker players with no full end game sets to obtain some wealth.

    However, it benifits greatly the bots in game.
    Instead of bots in locked games alone, you will see a full party of bots. Which is difficult to even detect because the party is full and won't show up in open games.

    The amount of gold loot on game is getting even higher, and this change concerns me.

    The game doesn't have that many concurrent players so I don't know why they would allow bots, wouldn't it be easy for them to see it happening even though we cant?

    Unfortunately they don't check all players unless reported, this is based on previous bots incident. There's this one whole group of bots running during previous events, they were only caught after they all gets into top 10 with almost the same score. There's even a guild full of bots running Isle of Night before, they only get banned after each one of them got 1m+ PvE kills and players started noticing them (and one of those account isn't banned 'till now)

    I remember those 5 bots, and yes one is still on the Leaderboards for pve kills. Unsure why that account was not banned too.

    If the amount of gold loot getting higher is concerning you, you need to go above and beyond and suggest changes to combat inflation. While expressing your concern at botting is a step in the right direction, the value of gold is still depreciating at an insane rate with or without botting.

    You care about bots destroying the economy yet gold events which do the same thing (albiet at a lower scale) are fine?

    We need more gold sinks. The valentine vanity set in the vendor is a good start but perhaps should cost more. Maybe some elixirs from Vincent that cost a lot. I'll post some suggestions in the appropriate section.

    What concerns me is this change benefits the bots.

    I did not mention inflation at all.

    My friends and I are having so much fun in Bow in Blue map again farming, earning up to 500k+ per run, it is amazing.

    If you send me a message here or on game, I'll be more than happy to tell you. We can not "call others out" on forums, to avoid unnecessary drama.

    I love the idea on the gold loot... the question has still yet to be answered... would we get a chance to buy a lovely from the vendor so it can keep us going and want to be more active... I know we all would love to at least have a bound one... so call it begging... I call it asking lol so would you please add that to the vendor before we don't have a chance to have nice gold loot in the game... again thanks for the update I said something about this a very long time ago... lol ppl thought then it was the same amount all the way around...

    I thought about this but decided against it. It's very rare loot and I think it should remain very rare loot. Obviously with fewer people motivated to earn the rare loot, those that have looted it can hang on to it and profit immensely. Best wishes! :-)
