Default Once more on 10m gold barrier

We have a Gold Event right now and things get really absurd.

I am almost on 10 million gold per 2,5 minute mission. That basically means that on longer missions you're probably almost always losing gold and lots of it.


I do think that Playa should get rid of 10 million gold barrier or at least up it to 15 million or something.

Please make Gold Event less disheartening.

True but there's already far more gold in the game than we used to have. High-levels defeat many twister floors and get much gold for selling the items. I think there must be a limit somewhere.

I agree with you and don't at the same time yes there has to be a limit at some point but heck even if they don't make it full amount upping the cap at some point to go along with a content update would be nice as well. plus the gold needed to get thru the dungeon lvls of twister is going to be quite a bit

This topic is not about the gold cap and game balancing. This topic is about non clever implementation of the cap.

10:00 min, 10000000 gold (16666.67/s)
07:30 min, 10000000 gold (22222.22/s)
05:00 min, 10000000 gold (33333.33/s)
02:30 min, 10000000 gold (66666.67/s)

Leander, please answer the question "Why cap is the same for all quest times?"

I don't have further details on the cap. It's how it is at the moment but mabye Playa will change it some time in the future.

Of course there should be a limits and it's quite possible that the current one makes sense in the long run.

I just wanted to point out that we get more and more absurd situations during Gold Event when you get close to cap on shortest missions.

This hasn't been changed since inception and probably won't change for a long time. S&F makes its most money off of new world releases.

Yes, but in the old servers like S1 DE there are still so many active shroomers that combined have certainly spent more than 100,000 euros/dollars through the years. Their interests are not to be neglected. We already won a big change - the gem search cost was reduced and balanced (thanks for that Leander, now I can go for gem mine 20). I am sure we will get this gold cap increased sooner or later. I think 40mln would be a reasonable cap - 4 times the current one that we (almost) hit already during gold events with shortest quests.

The next big change that I am sure everyone expects is getting rid of the non-socketed items (except shields). Nobody likes them, that is certain. I know they stimulate players to spend more mushrooms while searching for epics, but that could have the opposite effect. Before the sockets I needed around 800 mushrooms to renew all my epics. Last Christmas I spent 1600 mushrooms and I was not completely satisfied, because I couldn't get a triple stats epic weapon. I am happy to spend 800 mushrooms every few months to renew my epics, but I am not happy to spend 1600.
