Maintenance notes for 10/11

These are subject to change and updating. But here is the plan.

  • Update the MVP summoner, to not require items, but instead requires VIP (1 per day)
  • Update the "Spooky Machine" Will give different items for the various upgrading levels.
  • Update Merry Badger to take a couple of MVP gears for Eden Merit Badge items.
There will also be new Grandpa Turnins,
Possibly an October quest (if we can get it all tested in time).
Possibly an Upgrade event where we give out significant prizes for you doing upgrades to a specific item. Think like the Red Wing Hat event of yester year.

Sounds classy. I love the MVP summoner deal. It really boosts the value of a VIP membership.

Except that you used to be able to do 2 summons per day.


edit: the other stuff does look like fun
Any information on the list of items we're looking at to turn in at Badger? :(

Well, it was said from the beginning that it was going to eventually be VIP only and the items were temporary... I don't see why some people are acting surprised, TBH. With no item required, I think once per day summoning is actually quite reasonable.

I think they are going to make a recycler for the mvp summon items,
But in the long run I think people will like one free MVP summon a day better.
You could do it with your guild get and kill everything summon-able in a day.

with all due respect!!!

What the hell are you thinking switching it to one per day just make this once per day an option for summoning mvp's you don't have the items to summon. For this sudden change without any notice over the past couple weeks during patch notices I think you should really re-think this idea. Otherwise your gonna need to reimburse those of us who have stocked up the items to be able to summon MVP's considering the summoning items are a item bought on the market.

If you are changing the summoner to not require any items anymore permanently, at least give us a way to recycle the summoning items we bought and collected for months :(
Or, perhaps: require VIP OR summon materials? just a thought. So at least people who collected and bought and have VIP won't feel ripped off and could simply sell back the summoning items.

I suppose having both would be the ideal way to do it. Once per day, you can VIP summon a monster, and Once per day you can item summon a monster. That would amount to two summoned MVPs per day if you have both VIP and the items.

I personally like the sounds of this update. Value for items goes up and down, you choose to play the market. You can get very rich or get burned. I will miss not being able to summon my my alt acct, but i'll survive.

The only real problem with this is now the once useless mvp drops that became useful with this summoner, are now useless again. Unless they put them in the mvp gear recylcler?

Looking forward the the October, hope it gets finished in time. Yay for the claw machine!

Any guesses on the new Kill counts?

Will the new upgrading event be for a new piece of equipment or will it be a re-release of something past?

Please be something new...

I will look at the number of times summoning and upping it for VIP.

This was always intended to be a VIP thing, and us using the items was just to give you all a chance to sample it and dispose of your stacks of those items. Perhaps there will be event periods where we allow item version summoning again for a period.

Good job heim, Keep the summoning for VIp only and stop these guys with 7 alts camping the tower. I like this idea because i'm not the guy who bought thousands of gemstone at 10m ea. or more. Again, keep up the good work

uhmm,
having as many alts as possible is even better now actually :blaugh:


this sounds more like an attempt to make everyone have 20+ VIP accounts to get free 24/7 mvps.
that's if they dont ragequit because they just bought 100 Tao Sets for 1bil

cha-ching! :(

Is it the act of summoning itself that is VIP locked, or will not-VIP chars be completely unable to enter the arenas at all?
