Ark hunters,

We've got a week-long boost starting next week and we're inviting you to choose which one! While we'll be boosting XP rates by 100% from Friday, September 12 to Monday, September 15 for the newer recruits among you, we're also holding a bonus of the community's choosing from the list below starting Wednesday, September 10 until Wednesday September 17.


50% Faction Reputation Bonus
100% Salvage Bonus
25% Score Bonus
100% Scrip Bonus
50% XP Bonus and 50% Weapon Skill Bonus


Let us know in the poll attached to this thread!

Salvage & Scrip easy enough to get.

Xp & weapon skill are worthless to high ego characters.

1st choice (my vote) - score, good for everyone and helps with the AF/Key grind.
2nd choice would have been rep. but limited return based on amount of reputation events a player has access to (dailies/weekly events + exceptions)

Hi Maixx

This was, partly, the reasoning behind running the event from Wednesday to Wednesday (and let people know in advance) - the opportunity to run two weeklies with the bonus applied.

This is an awesome idea! I love the plan to start and end on a Wednesday, especially if Reputation stays at the top of the voting!

Oh, and I'm saying this completely tongue-in-cheek, so please don't slap me for it...

Scapes needs a time-out... Polls are against the forum rules! ;)

This is very cool.

Obviously Higher Level Players want Rep boost for Rep faction mods/weapons. Don't need scrip and no longer need to level up so much.

100% scrip bonus? Now that is real good. I don't think ppl know that with 100% scrip bonus that the scrip amounts you pick up are 100-140 range from TL 5 enemies and more for anything above. Be making 5K stacks within minutes. Everyone would be rich. An over looked option.

25% score boost is real good also. Higher score = more Ark Forge. Every bit counts.

Low level players should be voting on 50% XP Bonus and 50% Weapon Skill Bonus like crazy. You will pretty much level up every 2 Major Ark Fall events to put that into perspective.

Im going to hold out on my vote to see where this leads.

then I saw the poster name, and then came . . 'oh guess not'

tough choice between just 2 . . I did a coin flip . . in my head ,. . . not for realzies

Looks like I may have to have a little chat with Scapes in the morning and give him a time out!

JK - We discussed it in advance and figured a poll was a good idea to see what people want for something like this (I have my bets as to what it will be :) ).

If people like the idea, we can do things like this for future events.

Good to know! Less opposed to this individual boost now.

But i'm still opposed to the Xp & weapon skill as these bonuses do not benefit everyone (higher ego) like the other bonuses.
Just an opinion but i think you need to do the bonuses that provide a benefit to all. Let the F2P/lower E guys buy their xp bonuses like we had to do.
Xp is also far easier to aquire now even w/o boosts.

while i voted for 100% scripts bonus

i originally also wanted to vote for 50% Faction Reputation Bonus, as it's the hardest thing to get in game, since no new missions are created until all the old ones are gone from the world map

yet, sometimes the Faction you want to work for, they don't even offer any mission until the next day (or something like that, at least that's how it feels)

Ideally in the world map there should be at least 1 mission from each for the Factions, instead of all 10 missions from the same faction, or perhaps 8 from one, and only 2 from another, while zero for all other factions.

Nice idea, 50% faction rep for me pls :D

JadedSinn
09-05-2014, 12:38 AM
rep isent allways a good thing. im siting on huge stacks of it and im ego 5k (( finaly broke 5 k tonight woot me after a year of playing )) anyway. the best item on this list over all is the scrip boost. just like nef said with a 100% scrip boost and it ALLWAYS droping and being on the gorund and every where. within a few hours we could see people buying that nitorius box of doomage that cost 1,000,000 scrip that means it would also boost the ammount of people that get to see whats inside.

over all scrip is better then rep due to alot of rep venders (( atleast for me )) not selling anything i realy want nore need. everything i get is inside of lock boxes. and seeing as scrip is a little harder to come by now aday. i feel scrip would be the best idea to go with. where as rep is easyer to acumulate if people truly want it or need it .

Each faction always has a daily, and a weekly. To see what they are bring up the menu and go to the contracts. Not all are on the map, because some are co-ops or killing so many of a certain enemy type, and things like that. There are never 10 missions (contracts) for one faction on the map.

The arkforge gain from most of events is so low, that I don't see how 25% Score Bonus would help. I mean 6 arkforge instead of 5 is not so great change. It would also be strange when everyone get high score after event. You should also remember of score cap for events! 200K, as I recall.
So my vote for rep. bonus, but 100% Scrip Bonus would also be helpful when T4 lockboxes are fixed.

PS. Speaking of scrip - I do not see many people running collecting scrips after events - looks like everyone is reach already.

I vote for loot bonuses to be restored . This will take care of a few things . If ppl wanted a scrip bonus well sell the stuff . Salvage well same idea . Also with giving us non encryption purples back maybe we can get a good drop and roll the dice on something . Which means 500 less forge . Which means buying more forge which means trion gets more money . Literally everyone wins

I agree with this. Since loot boost is no longer available for purchase, it would be nice to have it as a "bonus" for a week.

PiccolaRivolta
09-05-2014, 07:21 AM
I hope it's gonna be 50% Rep boost. And in a time zone when you have weekly contracts undone... so with the Patron pass you can get 17 and 85 rep respectively from daily and weekly contracts.

A score booster would be good too ... But 25% is barely noticeable in keys/arkforge obtained. Probably 1-2 more of each.

7.000+ arkforge unused, better win mr. Rep+ :)

My choice would be Reputation too since Chimaera only has one daylie (and 7th Legion 1daylie, 2 weeklys... maybe wrong coding for the the second weekly to be for Chimaera instead of 2 for 7th Legion !? :-) ) and is my last faction (so far for now) to get finished

I don't want to sway the outcome, however I do want to test this out first on our Public Test Servers.

So, given our preliminary Gallup Poll results, we are enabling a "50% Reputation Boost" and "100% Experience Boost" starting in an hour or so (I will post patch notes) on the Public Test Servers.

i dont know phantasie . the rep and XP boost is useless to alot of higher ego players that dont have all the DLCs :: cough like me cough :: even on pts where i have them the XP is still useless once you max out the XP levels and cant go any higher. :: cough like me cough :: i think the one that would work out best sadly even if its not the top voted realy is the scrip boost. 100% scrip to me is more usefull then rep any day. but thats just my thoughts :) adn iv allready cast my vote :D come on scrip bost you can catch up to the other ones come on scrip boost

Antavius
09-06-2014, 06:09 AM
For me it's a toss up between faction and score. Each has it's own benefits. Score really helps with collecting arkforge and may even allow some players to complete arenas/hotshots/rampages. Faction (especially chimera) lets you get to those lockboxes a bit more quickly which newer better gear is always nice. It would be nice to see a boost to arkforge and ceruleum core drop rates.

superstorm

I am very slow and not 5k yet, so score boost is a no-brainer for me. But even after 5k score should be preferable. Reputation will not give you arkforges and fragments.

I also voted for scrip. If I cared about rep, then I would actually do the faction crap more often. However, even though I no longer gain Xp, I am fine with that being run at the same time as something voted on by VETS. The xp boost is for the newer players. So I am glad they are letting us vets get something too. It is however dumb to have 50% XP Bonus and 50% Weapon Skill Bonus listed as a voteable choice, since we are definitely already getting an xp boost during this event.

I think that means no add-hoc user created polls. In certain narrow situations like this where it is just a quick way of finding preference for a set list of options polling is useful, but most of the polls you find people making in forums are far less useful than full comments on the issue (if they even have anything to do with the purpose of the forum at all, which a lot of user created polls do not).
