Since the release of update 1.10.60, we have been getting tons of questions, as well as great feedback. We thank you for your support and we’d like to give an official response to some of the hotter questions:
Q: There are so many changes in one update, it’s too overwhelming. Can you do them in a more incremental way?
A: We apologize about introducing so many changes at once. We understand it is very hard to digest and we will try to space these system changes out in the future.
Q: I hate the new troop system. Can we change it back?
A: We understand it’s a big change and that it’s hard to adopt a brand new system particularly a system you may have previously mastered. The change requires you to restart farming on troops, which can be very frustrating. We discussed this design for weeks before we started working on the revamp and truly believe it is the best direction, by allowing us to stretch our creative legs more often in the future. We plan to add even more events to allow farming troop relics more quickly. We also plan to add a new function to allow re-assigning troops for free under certain circumstances. In general we want to keep the system as is, but make it less punishing for exploring new strategies.
Q: Why is unbinding a rune so expensive?
A: The rune unbinding cost is high because we designed it as a premium feature on top of rune binding which is free for all. There needed to be a risk for the reward. While we don’t plan to reduce the cost, we plan to add a new monthly event to allow unbinding each rune once for free. This will allow you to try new strategies or to give obsolete runes to new heroes without a cost.
Q: Why is Realm of Legends harder now? Can you make it easier? Why is the gold loot from Dweller Vault so little, plus you removed the rune drop?
A: We want to let you know the current tier-15 rune drop rate is equivalent to original tier-20’s. You will see 100% 5-star runes drop from the new tier-20 while this was not the case before. We don’t have any plans to adjust realm difficulties. For Dweller Vault, the reason we didn’t increase gold drop significantly is the additional gem rewards we added. We plan to add even more events to give you more sources for gold/mana farming.
Q: Can you stop nerfing some of the heroes?
A: We understand you may have invested a lot into a particular hero. When the hero gets nerfed it’s not a cool experience. We tried our best to avoid nerfing heroes but you guys find new strategies that we’ve never thought of that just go too far in terms of balance. Most of them can be countered by newer strategies but some become dominant and severely break the game balance. Under those circumstances, we may choose to nerf the heroes behind those strategies. In the future we will release a new function allowing all runes on the nerfed hero to be unbound for free.
Q: Why were my hero stats reduced after the 1.10.60 patch?
A: As stated in the patch notes, We “fixed a bug where Rune stats were stacking improperly”. Previously flat value bonus and percentage bonus were stacking which was not intended. That inflated the flat value bonus and 1.10.60 fixed it.
Wartide is our world and we are constantly working to improve it more and more for our players to enjoy. We have heard your feedback and want to continue to hear back from you on these new changes soon to come.
Thank You Champions!
