Nice! Please ask Trick to answer whether the daily grab bag boosts and XP boosts given from the patron pass will be converted into Loot boost for those of us who have hit the XP cap / EGO MAX

Good point 4ndreas, fact is alot of us who are max ego have reached the XP cap and are rank 20 in all of our skills, so the patron pass boost package does very little for us. So if they were to change the XP boost to Loot boost and the Skill boost to Reputation boost I believe it would do very well (meaning for those who are MAX in XP and Skills will have the XP/Skill boosts converted to Loot and EXTRA Reputation boosts)... It would certainly entice me into purchasing a patron pass, without those its not so viable for us/me, thats my 2cents =)

How much ark forge will it cost to upgrade weapon rarity?
How much will the patron pass cost per month?
With the patron pass "New Arkforge currencies in Daily/Weekly login bonuses." Will those be in the claim items in the daily reward boxes or something new?
Can we buy more key code space to put our limit past 75?

I agree, an increase in keycode space would be great

I think that all the long time players should have something better than 1000 arkforge and a month pass, especially since some have spent a lot of money on this game.

Question; Could the long time players get 2500 arkforge and a 3 month patron pass? Or maybe 10 arkforge for every day played before June 3rd.

I'd rather the 1000 arkforge. I have been playing since launch and have only played 70 days in game, meaning 700 arkforge? lol.. no thx =)

Just curious. If the Paradise Patron status would be obtainable by "adding on" purchases via the bit store. I am bad at creating coherent ideas but i ll try.

Let say someone spent 100 bits an month after 10 months he spent totally 1k bits at that point he will get an 30 day Paradise Patron status. Just an idea.
It will possibly lead more people to buy things from bit store and ensure that after some spent sum total they will spent more next month.

Oh I have an answer to that!

They value us as much as the Sca........er, scope they use!

Or perhaps they prefer to "STEEL" us away!

Obviously, it they think 30 day patron pass is treating us like kings.

You should be able to use your disc as usual.

I really hope so as that install was brutal on my rubbish internet.

Will we be getting a new set of season 2 pursuits and any plans to fix the bronken hot shot & rampages?

Would like a clearer explanation on plans for console {PS3} stability. With the "influx of new players" The Company is expecting, what is the plan?

Scapes, you mentioned in another thread that your opinion was that the stability on PS3 was good. I'd like to know why you consider an average of 3-5 dc's an hour and a hard freeze a night, "good"?

He also gave you a different "bogus" reason in that thread, so expect it again.

Sorry but this is the biggest load of B.S. To come out of this company. I am sorry but they are treating this like it truly is free for the console players and it is not. No matter what you will not be able to play this game with out an xbox live gold membership. Which mean it is and never will be free to play.

Two they are treating this like it's a Pc mmo which it is far from. The world is to small. The only difference in any of the weapons is the are reskins with a new power on them from some. None of the dlc except the one with the war master can be really consider more than a patch. The world doesn't change. You grind the same regions over and over again for a chance to get a legendary that is often times more crap than a blue or purple.

The changed the scoring system to promote team work and it is broken. I have a frc particle repeater that can do anywhere from 25,000 to 250,000 damage on an enemy can be chased around ken farm by a formidable hulker do over a million points of damage easy to it and only get a 1000 points from it. How is that fair? And before some one says something stupid no I tend to lead the hulker chasing me to the larger group of people. Team work and all.

They have screwed up the drop rates repeatedly. Or should I say after two weeks of the dlc coming out the change the drop rates of oranges to non existent. In order for you to pay to get oranges a chance at an outfit. Hell I got banned for a few days because of their own programing mistake on the orange box that they took off. They treated me like I modded the game and I didn't.

Prefect example of nerfed drop rates, the war master used to give out oranges often. It was even advertised that the best weapons in the game come from the war master. Now you can farm a war master for weeks and your lucky if you get an orange.

And now they want us customers who have been loyal from week one day one or even 6 months to take it up the arse with a shiny valueless crap as a thanks from being with us. Sorry but that doesn't fly by me. Just on two servers back when They had the xbox locked and I had to switch to the u.k server to play with my friends I have spent over a thousand dollars on this game from outfits to inventory slots, boxes which I do like the boxes dropping outfits but it doesn't warrant a slap in the face. Like what is being done here.

Anyway thanks for letting me rant. Time to play Yugioh.

So after watching this stream I noticed a bug, at the 46:55 minute mark they take down the major arkfall, trick has 57k points but at the results screen it shows him with a score of 16. Hopefully that doesn't make it into the live servers when they release that update.
