CONGRATULATIONS!

Post by Cashew » Sun Sep 01, 2019 5:15 am

I know many of you affected are upset by the new Level Formula update and the resulting loss of levels, but I still feel congratulations are in order.

I have edited this post (slightly) to account for some clarification on how the level-rework formula actually worked, but still the point behind it applies.

Since the actual total XP was taken into account there was no time/experience lost at all. This was simply a fix that had been asked to be implemented for the past several years.

It might seem like a total stripping of levels, but actually you were given the absolute highest possible level you could be if you had spent these past few years NOT abusing a known error to gain insanely fast levels.

All of your "purchased" levels were applied at the end of your account regardless of when they were applied or who actually bought them. Meaning levels bought at lower levels (potentially only worth millions of XP each when using to "jump" ahead to the fast grinding lvls) were now being applied at the very end of ALL of your XP earned, making them worth BILLIONS of XP each.


The only reason people seemed to not lose any levels is because they had not spent 3377 levels' worth of time grinding to have their current XP adjusted. It's not their fault they spent more money than you, this entire game is PtW you can't even get ahead without pets and someone has to pay real $ for them so why is it surprising those that paid money will win?


You're all still way above the average player both in level and time invested into the game. There was a fix that had been asked to be worked on for years finally done. It's not the developer's fault some players "assumed" they would be able to keep levels based on a flawed XP system. Levels are not the same as XP


You all kept your current XP / time spent grinding, it was just implemented into the New Level System and since they couldn't tell when bought levels were applied, they just added everybody's at the end equally.




So yeah, congratulations on all the free BILLIONS of XP acquired by simply "moving" when your bought levels were applied to your account. I'm kinda jelly meow.

I know many of you affected are upset by today's update from the loss of levels, but I still feel congratulations are in order.

Not only did you receive thousands of hours/dollars worth of free levels by not having any previously "earned" levels / XP fall in line with the new post 3377 formula (you get less XP per mob killed to "simulate" 650k/level increase just like everybody else has to do before hitting the cap)

Any "purchased" levels that were also applied to your account (regardless of when they were applied or who actually bought them) were now applied AFTER calculating your "earned" XP level; giving each and every one of them the highest value possible.


Yeah it ain't your fault the old XP was capped and a new formula took so long and a fix at an inopportune time that coincides with the "saving" of a map and it all smells like PtW, but I still feel ya'll were adequately compensated for your previous efforts.

The people whose level barely changed kept them BECAUSE they are mostly bought levels. If they didn't "grind" 3377 levels worth then they weren't affected because they wouldn't have even reached the cap to begin with.

If this formula was applied years ago (when people asked for a fix) and you spent this same exact amount of time grinding, you wouldn't even be nearly as close as you are now because ALL of the xp you've earned throughout this time post 3377 would be lowered according to this new formula.

Meanwhile their level would still be exactly as it is now because they BOUGHT most of their levels. If anything they got less of a bonus (if any) because they didn't benefit from grinding post 3377 since most of their current levels were paid for.

The entire game is PtW; you don't even stand a chance unless you get multiple pets which someone has to pay real $ for so it shouldn't be surprising to find that the developer only jumps to action when monies are involved.




But anyways, congratulations on getting a huge leg-up on all current/future players on any grinding past 3377 that didn't do so whilst the XP was still broken. I'm kinda jelly meow.

"abandon game creator is doing terrible"

Idk, was obviously copy/pasted translated stuff but oh wells.

Yeah I just paste a translated "English Please" in whatever language (I think) they're using because I can't translate it inside the actual game and have no idea what they're saying.

Outside of the game is fine though, but getting someone to talk there to translate is like trying to eat a steak with a banana.

I only see that the exp is still in the same place, since when climbing a lvl or 2 it is still like when it was bad, that is, it is still paralyzed, it wants to say that the lvl that went up after the removal would take them away from me? That e rose some lvl and the exp is still the same as before? :shock:
