    I never refreshed anyway, but I still sympathize with the cause.
  • As on today the fights a harder than before. I'm on Level 55 an got challengers with level 60 to 65 with up to 4 elites.

    That's pretty uncool

    yup ROI is horrible in this game

    They should look at Clash of Clans and notice how they've kept so many people playing the game and dropping a few bucks on a constant basis

    Clash of clans survived because they listened to customers option and didnt charge gems for every little thing you do

    Better yet, why not announce ahead of time that this change was coming?
    because they didn't want TL give the opportunity to those with saved tokens to react. This way maybe they gran some cash, at the cost of alienating their customers a bit. Bad for long término business, but profitable in the short term

    Haha wow, I never even noticed what the refresh cost before. Now that I see what it did and what it does now, that's a pretty lame move by them yet expected.

    I'm with Qeltar...they don't fix issues that still exist yet something like this becomes a priority.

    Just shows they don't really care about their "game" and it is more about trying to get as much cash spent on crystals as possible. But hey....all you whales and higher end spenders keep satisfying your addictive personalities and keep rewarding them for it all. Brilliant.

    lol

    Thats my point when the game is young it is supposed to be amazing and fun because they want new people to join. These updates should try to satisfy the player not enrage them after every update.. why would new players play if everything good about the game changes

    This is awesome because it doesnt allow someone to stock up and cheaply and quickly purchase the new characters that will be added. Thank you EA for not killing the F2P and small spenders.

    I agree with them stopping people from stocking up and instantly getting a 7* but they could of just did a easy fix where they put the refresh at a max of 4 times for the 10 gw tokens after the 4th refresh you have to wait till the next day to do the 4 more refreshes
  • How many times do u players update the GW Shipment?

    You don't get it. GW shipmemts is literally THE place where you can do as F2P as well as a P2P. You gain 1200 tokens regardless of what. P2P get much more refreshes for cantina, shards, and have more crystals available for sniping and sniping defense in Arena (besides a better roster with soñé chromium exclusive chars). And p2p players csn actually afford the 50 crystals to update

    This does not hurt p2w players, it hurtd those with saved Points (vetersn players), regardless of how they got them.

    Exactly they are making this game more and more pay to play or even play to win if you are competitive... The onky way to counter this is for them to reverse the changes and just add a limiting refresh update or increase our daily amount of crystal we get

    Does everyone talking about instantly 7*ing a toon via GW tokens even know how many it would take to do that? I'm going to assume no, or else it wouldn't be continually discussed.

    I've been playing since hard launch and have won 53 straight GW matches. I have only gotten one toon out of GW; Luminara to 7*. I started stockpiling before there were even rumors of an update to get excited about. I have saved a total of 18,800 tokens. Care to know how many it takes to 7* a toon? 26,400. Yup....and that's not even including the cost of refreshes, which increased to 50 after three. I'm sure it continued to increase but I never bothered to find out.

    So, please, let's stop with this insta 7* nonsense. The only ones capable of doing that were people buying chromium.

    I thought the 10 GW tokens was pretty naff but 50 crystals and increasing each time it's used is really unfair.

    WHAT A CHEAP LOW BLOW MOVE!! Absolutely ridiculous. I LOVE playing this game, but with the amt of crystals and money needed to play without having to wait half a day, I'm going to be gone soon along with many people.

    Lol where the devs at? I wander what deceiving words they'll have to try and calm us down and convince us that what they changed was for the "best" of everybody. Again how convenient that they just forgot to mention it lol chill everyone I bet you that none of devs will address it anytime soon or respond to us. They know what they did was a cheap move. Watch they will try to "ignore" it lol
    It's obvious they are more interested in $$$ than previous bugs that already exist. What do you expect? They are just as money hungry as other companies like Machine Zone.

    Ps. Wait for the "no negative comments" from devs to shut everyone up lol.
    Wait for it....
    seriously devs? GW refresh change was a low blow for more $$$

    Really wish they would change it back. I would never spend crystals on this. Or even better give me another way to earn crystals along with arena

    While I can't stand the ruthless cash grab shown by EA here, I thankfully am not negatively affected. I never traded GW tokens to refresh quicker. Since I play free, I'm picky about spending resources so if it took me a day or two to unlock someone with my banked credits, no biggie. I never felt rushed to do anything so I've been lucky. I can see how many who have banked large amounts of tokens must be steamed though...

    The total cost of tokens in refreshes till 7* was 400. So it only meant sacrificing a single 5 shard purchase. Depending on your diligence in purchasing shards every 6 hours it was actually faster to do the refreshes.

    No...it was 10 for two refreshes, then jumped to 50.

    Where did I say otherwise? No one refreshed for 50 tokens. Refreshing at 10 tokens each time until 7* equates five shards.....

    To all of you people who are saying people who were saving our tokens were trying to get an instant 7 star.

    Did it ever occur to you that some of us were not spending our tokens because CG refuses to give us any kind of direction on what characters they are going to change in the coming update? Although with the way they like to stick it to us I can say that it seems pretty clear poe is getting a buff.

    So ten tokens twice a day for 20 days....that's just hugely fast right
