    Now after a short break from the world of scorched i have my first game on mains using the new vers. Now i remember people complaining about the prices, 15k for chutes in particular, so the brainboxes in charge of this operation think, “i know a good solution for that” Lets double the price…

    I dont do complaints but come on. Now, lets have a think strategically. We want this community to keep growing as it has been. Newbies are joining all the time. Some dont stick around for long. Mostly because they find it too difficult, especially with affording things as most newbies are unaware of interest on there cash and rewards for kills, damage etc.

    First off, putting prices up is going to solve…….? Exactly, I know for a fact many if not all will agree because i have only spent 10 mins on the server and i was playing with 6 others. All 6 agreed. So you people who are responsible for this sorta thing, sort it out. Its ermm how do i put it friendly, pretty shite.

    Before you go off blaming a developer or two, consider this: it’s likely an unforeseen side-effect or a bu… Oh… Damn, I’m too late. 🙁

    He tries to get my goat all the time but having grown quite fond of this old goat, I simply refuse to give him the lead. 😉

    Princey, I’m afraid you entirely missed all the obnoxious sarcasm in my comment. I’m sorry to hear.

    i know there was talk of increasing prices on funky bombs, which i don’t think to many people could complain about, but this new pricing scheme sucks. cmon, you start with 30k, which by round 2 is usually a minimum of 39k…and chutes (imo the only thing in the game that you must buy) cost 30k..that is just stupid. i understand the whole market price thing, but at least for chutes (and really batteries) there has to be a much lower cap. this whole change is just stupid and i have heard NO one say anything nice about it at all. i really dont think your intent was to make your entire player base unhappy with the game, at least i hope not, but you have managed to do so. maybe it’s just me, but with all the selection of weapons there is, having diggers as the number 1 weapon cuz no one can afford chutes is ridiculous, they may not be yet, but if you look i would bet that diggers killing % has jumped big time with this new version, i know they have for me personally. is that the type of game you are pointing us too, if so, i doubt i will be playing much longer, just not as fun anymore

    Hi SwanDude:

    Hmmmm, deja vu? I could swear I just replied to this message. In any case, the solution is simple and it takes less than 5 minutes to implement and doesn’t require a new release.@swandude wrote:

    Now that is has been pointed out that batteries and chutes are not subject to a decrease, perhaps lowering the base prices in the accessories file is in order.

    Not being exactly sure who has the required access, I’m not sure who to direct this to but:

    I believe Gavin gave the admins or the developers, or both, his blessings for adjustments a couple of months ago when we were discussing the delayed defenses. That being the case, maybe a quick price change would be ok without prior approval. If not, it’s very simple to change it back. If you’ve got the proper access, stick your neck out a little, it feels good.

    Oh yeah, … Last week my doctor gave me a sample of Viagra to try. I called him up yesterday and asked if he had it in a liquid form. He asked if I had trouble swallowing pills and I told him, I guess I do doc, the first one I tried got stuck in my throat and I’ve had a sniff neck for days. Party on dudes!

    Wishing you all a most excellent weekend,

    Rommel
