The players were happier with the old chip vendor. That's not an opinion, that's a fact.

It was nice being able to earn and choose the chips you wanted. Too much rng in this game.

short answer: no
long answer: you can always pay to play their game of russian roulette with the bitbox chip/rig crates wink wink nudge nudge so no more.

So so glad I managed to for better or worse complete 3 good rigs.

I miss the old vendor so much.
Trion logic:

-"Hey Trion, how about putting a decent-ish OJ Rig for a high Shard price in the vendor?"
-"Ok"

Proceeds to place an RNG box with 2% chance for an OJ Rig and locks away the chips behind an RNG wall as well.

Hey All,

I will go ahead and tell you here, we will be bringing back direct purchase chips to the Silicon Shard vendor. Due to the increase in the amount of shards you get now, the prices will differ from before, but you will be able to choose the chips that you want in the very near future.

The random boxes will still stay on the vendor, if you want a chance at legendary chips. We will announce on the forums when this will be going live.

the prices will differ from before

So, instead of paying 50 shards per, for example, a purple chip, it's going to become 10,000 shards now, right???

They will never revert decoy back to the old version. 90% of the people that use decoy only used it for exploiting expeditions. Notice how there aren't any threads with people boasting about getting to round 100+ in expos?

PS- Decoy was changed because of those threads. The community has no one to blame but themselves.

Well I have not been playing so much this week but I am at tier 50 atm because I have been playing stolen purpose instead of the event.I do not need the old decoy back to reach tier/round 100+ but the current decoy is not distracting enemies,that should be fixed

But people never used the old decoy to distract enemies. That was never the argument and the old decoy lasted all of 3 seconds before the mobs destroyed it.

PS- The new decoy runs around like an idiot on crack but you can still switch places with it.

What did I miss?

As far as I can tell, excluding the current event, the last 10 patches or so have all been either related to the Exchange or related to the Monterey PvP map. The Exchange is being completely removed and the last I heard a ton of people were complaining that they either DC trying to join Monterey or DC at the end.

It has been used to kills bosses easier but people used it legitimately to reach those bosses,where the distraction is essential

You can argue legitimacy all you want but that wasn't the reason people were upset.

Awesome that the old vendor is coming back. Does that mean the lower tier weapon specific chips will be removed from the chest loot table, therfore increasing the chances at good oj chips, rigs, and supremes?

If all the direct purchase chips that were in there before are put back in there (even with the understandably higher shard cost because shard payout was increased from breaking down things)... then that's awesome.

Leaving the rng boxes in there as well for those that want to spend on a chance at OJ - great as well.

I just hope it's not overdone on the cost adjustment for direct purchase chips.
