This was meant to be a private conversation between Machine Zone and the current emperor Stay Alive. Ordinarily wouldn’t want to post something intended to be private like this but it seems this had already been spread extensively. Many of you will have seen this already but for those of you that haven’t here it is in full (including the extra juicy bolded bits).
The Interesting Bits:
There is a lot of interesting information in here, the most significant being of course the new trading system for materials and cores. This has been a long requested feature and does at least help to explain why Machine Zone have ramped up their gear release schedule from two sets a month to what is currently about 4 a week. Hopefully more info will be released on this soon.
They also state that the largest complaint from players is that there is not enough to do. I think they are missing the point slightly though if they think that the answer to this is more gear and more research. What do you do with the gear and research once you have it? That’s the real question.
The other major feature is the new Dungeon Explorer mode. They are hyping it as way to keep the single player game fun and fresh. It has just come out in Beta and so far the first impressions seem underwhelming – it doesn’t seem to offer a huge amount over the current Dungeon mode. Post on this coming very soon.
Here is the original conversation:
The removed bolded bits:
And here are Stay Alive’s thoughts on the changes MZ need to make:
p.s. Hot off the press -a few accounts in Beta have had their Hero Level limit increased to level 60. Looks like the power level for this is set at 10B power. More details to follow soon….
