Why don't the devs have the decency to do this?

Obviously a mistake happened with Canderous gear level 7. You don't have to be a genius to know that stun guns, cuffs and furnaces are not supposed to be used pre gear level 8. This is the only character in the game and the fact that his level 8 is exactly the same is a clear indication that this was a mistake. The second scenario is that you guys decided to pull an experiment on the community for metrics and under the guise of a mistake you got data and feedback to see if you can pull this stunt on future characters.

Regardless of the reason, mistake or intentional, the decent thing to do is refund that gear to those who used it and restructure the level, or give every player who used the gear, a copy of those pieces and for those who haven't done it yet, make it so that once they reach gear level 7 it automatically fills up the slots.

I don't understand how a multi billion dollar company like EA and a multi million dollar company like CG could not have the decency to take such a tiny and insignificant hit, it's not like it is gear level 12 or 11 or something, it's 7.

    It is what it is....they can set whatever gear requirements they see fit and it's up to the players to decide if they want to or not....I am not opposed to harder gear grinds on characters as it makes the game even more strategic on who you're going to gear. Of course whales will do regardless but even so it's not that big of deal. It's a game...either you enjoy it or you turn it into a chore and hate it at which point why even bother playing?

    What is immoral about this? The devs did nothing wrong. They can make the gear requirements whatever they feel like it

    Canderous needs less stun guns , cuffs and furnaces in total than other toons that have those requirements at higher gear levels

    I would accept this answer if gear 7 and 8 wasn't identical. This is clearly a mistake in the code or something like that. If they had even a single difference in the pieces I would see how that's not the case but you know it is. Their choice to change the currently established precedent is up to them, which would be another debate, however no character after Canderous has done that either. It's simply too obvious that this was a mistake and nothing more and unless a developer confirms that this was intended I won't take anyone else's word for it. This appears to be a clear example of the devs not taking responsibility and facing their own mistake, but instead passing it on to the players.

    It's fine. His overall gear requirements are pretty much the same
  • Except there was a comment already that this was intentional, when he was first released, so .. ..

    Was a reason given? Because I don't think the devs would simply comment that it is intended without giving at least one reason or justification for it

    I don't understand the part where it is expected that the devs come up with a justification for the gear requirements.
  • He’s just backwards, hes really easy to gear after gear 9 instead of being easy at 7 and 8 also he’s still a good character why would they refund the gear?

    And I don't know how many other Clone accounts he has. He's got more than enough to make an entire Clone Squad. :D

    Pretty bald claim especially when the only evidence you have is activity date. Now maybe you can go find all the people who joined the forum on March 19th and put them on the same "suspect" list.

    The only thing indecent is how much time people spend digging the forum to find something to discredit those who they disagree with because they can't win the argument. Similar to how politics work today, once you're pinned in the corner with an argument you can't defeat, you go full detective on their lives to find something in their past to lower their credibility. Now prove your claim or **** please.

  • Assuming you've blocked me (and probably a couple of the others) as I can't see the post the last few have quoted. It's "bold claim".

    The Canderous thing really isn't an issue for me. If he didn't need it at gear 7 he'd need it later. As it stands it's plain sailing once gear IX is reached. They've also stated it is intentional.

    Lol no Kyno you’re good and Baldinghead, I don’t know if you’re Peterbahama, and I don’t know if you have a balding head, but I’ve probably upset you in the past, and I just wanna say that I’m sorry, and you don’t have to pretend that it’s fine, because it’s not, and you’re gonna be okay
