Gnome-a-Palooza reward formula

Regardless of how healthy some gameplay habits may be, it’s super impolite to bash someone for playing a lot.


Putting some additional things into context: the game is a grind to do almost anything. It takes 5,050 xp to level one class to 100. That’s 84+ hours of grinding at one battle per minute, doing explores (so also getting gold/souls). So people that are efficient take the blame? I don’t think so.

They nerfed resources entirely too much. They knew this would happen and implemented it anyway. Then nerfed it so players can blame other players instead of the bean counters getting all of the blame. Put the blame where it’s deserved: management making the decisions on what to implement.


Salty was likely also including the standard battles rewards in her calculcation, the gold, traitstone, souls, champion xp and occasional treasure map you always get.

Do you guys get, the more you brag about how much you got, it gives the developers reasons to nerf something. I did not bash someone for playing a lot. Fake news.

But you did…

@Andruwjones Fake News . You said for playing a lot. Wrong. Its for bragging about how many battles he did. No way he got 30 sets a verses this event. So he was a elite using two or 3 iron hawks. How many people have that? .01 pct? so the elite ruined it for non elite.

He was contributing statistics, there was no implication of bragging. For all you know he may have bought verses, or grinded a lot of them during the first GAP Vault weekend.


Fleg said that they used 30 gnome storms and not that they farmed 30 gnome storm sets. In fact they had those amount from last event. If you call his 68 battle as elite then what are you calling my 73 batlles? oO
And you shouldnt even talk about stuffs you dont know at all. First at all they know about the mess of gnome storm beforehand since top player warned them before IP2 made a preview. Even in the preview they got warned again. And they didnt listen.
Because of that some of the ancient player and veterans loses hope and stop helping them out which leads to the bad situation we are in atm.
And lastly ironhawk is the fastest but even with rowanne set you can get 4+ per min. So speaking every so called “non elite” can spree gnome storm so fast over that they are also “too fast” by IP2 definition.
So i only can see your post as a “rant” without even knowing anything

I didn’t say that…check the quotes :grinning:

I’m nowhere near elite and have 2 irons…got lucky with a x2 pull when it released. Elite didn’t ruin anything, Dev’s waited until day 2 to fix their mistake and then blamed players for taking advantage so that non-endgame players would be mad at endgame.

Clearly it’s working :no_good_man:

Its only working because people like those are not looking at both sides but just blaming something because its convenient. Lets hope they do so afterwards and apologize for the mess oO


What i find interesting is that the last battle of GaP gives full rewards. No idea what this indicates tho

I usually get 16-18% of the gnome rewards. The glory gnome would be 500 glory normally.

it probaly mean the fight finish after GAP have finished so the reduced reward isnt applied anymore

They are simply cheap. I think the first gnome-a-palooza Thursday resulted in firing some heads in development and brainstorming how to give players less and less

Throttling rewards up to 50 seconds may apparently ve a bug.

Can anyone with fights between 30-50 seconds experiencing reduced rewards comment on the bug report? The devs are asking for examples. I will go through this and the official announcement of GAP changes thread later this week and link to comments with examples.
