We made this decision based on the data. From the data we gathered, few players in US version have + ...

Not sure what data you have got but from my experience of looking at peoples gears (yes I'm nosy and like to look what other people have got) most people that are at cap do have +5 gear (or above) because it is so easy to achieve without the risk of loosing their item, which at level 60 can get expensive to buy/craft.

People generally don't do it as much before they cap as there is no need to as you level so fast you soon outlevel your gears and you can't really be competitive in pvp until your at cap so that's when people choose to start doing it.

This all seems like a rather obvious ploy to get people to buy and use more protective crystals. As players get to 65 and buy/craft the 65 gears, which will be even more expensive than the 60 gears and therefore are not going to want to risk losing the item.

As tissuebox already said this is more of a revamp. I don't think you are going to find anyone that thinks this has been 'optimized' or that this is in any way an improvement over the previous system.

And I thought STO wont be the same as GDO. Also, this update is too sudden. It's one of the key elements in a MMORPG, changing it instantly (or announcing 3 days before implementation) will really cause players trouble. especially when it involves buying mall items. Wouldnt it be unfair to new players? tbh, this update wont really help those "few players" who doesnt have +5. It'll make them even more left behind. STO's population is low. 150-300 people really plays, others are alts and vendors. Doing this will make non cashers who gathered money for next cap quit or they'll end up paying triple for enhancement gems. (PC prices will most likely triple cause of demand).

With the new changes:
Without protective crystals:
Weapons are only safe until +3

Hi xNagi,

Without PC, weapons are 100% safe until +4;
armors are 100% safe until +5.

These Lv. A hammers are now available in the game. You just need to do missions, kill monsters to get them.

I wouldn't be surprised if STO's population depleted because of the new enhancement system.

This sums it up. You would be hard pushed to find any capped player (and that's quite a big proportion of the player base) that hasn't got more than +5 gears.

Hi xNagi,

Without PC, weapons are 100% safe until +4;

with the current system it's affordable to enhance armors to +7 and weapons to +6 with Lv.B hammers and without protective items....

people only do it on max level equipment because of how time consuming acquiring low lvl enhancement hammers is, and because they outlevel the equipment in a matter of days
not because they can't afford them or because of how many hammers it requires

the new system does offer an advantage regarding that it consumes 1 hammer per enhancement attempt, but this will simply flood the market with hammers that can't be used because of the scarcity of protective items

i can already see it: a stack of 6-Star hammers for 1g and a single protective crystal for 40-60g
just keepin it real

Welp, there goes my chances of ever being able to afford a +10 weapon or a full set of +8 armor.

The new data is based on GREEEEEED
Not enough users depending on your item mall to enhance gears Koram???


It's a fact that most of the active level capped people have their gears at least at +7/6.
Koram are basing their so called data on getting the game population to depend on mall items to enhance earlier and spend moar

but this is for the interests of most of the players.

Your shiest is shiesty Koram, Yall's not for the general population of the game but more for your pockets.

And anyone with the mentality that this is tolerable because in gdo's(chinese merged ver.) ...
The ratio for cash to k-coin is higher here than in that version. SO yuh gl.

Do What the players Want this gonna be hard i see a lot of people going leave the ST
Keep Enhancement system like now, if they do not the game will lose many players and this can lead to the termination of the game.

Myb they want it to be terminated. while trying to rack some pockets for certain range of time. Im just saying with all that reasons that Koram/Mandy said, it doesnt sound reasonable enough to players (non-mallers) to enjoy the game. If you only trying to get money this game is finished with its popularity, which gonna end soon enuf.

In other case i would love to propose an idea, what "IF" there is a coin malls in game as well. just like training ground, as well as price down of the items mall. In that way ppl might stay.

anyway that's my POV. sry for my bad english

good for those who have +10 heroic sets or +8 sets coz +7 onwards youll eventually use pc/ipc/bpc so for 65 gears all people will be force to use pc/ipc/bpc on +6~15 gg.. now i know why some people on gdo sticks with heroic 60 set.

I am sorry to add on to the people that are unhappy with this update.
When I first saw that the weapon will break if it failed to enhance, I already didn't like this update. I didn't know it was gonna be like GDO...

While enhancing, it better get interrupted when I move my character (because it didn't get interrupted while I was testing out the new "Upgrade" button in the backpack to see how it worked, and I accidentally wasted x10 Brilliant Rubies for x1 Bright Ruby that was taking up my backpack space... yup, my bad), because if I somehow forget to put in a PC during the enhancement and it fails and disappears, I'll be really pissed. Especially if it was my new lv65 weapon.

Might wanna think about getting that fixed.

the enhancement interface can be closed by pressing "Esc" or " P"


the issue at hand is the increment on the cost that enhancements will have

since the new system is set to make a relatively cheap item (hammers) even cheaper and increase the demand (thus the price) of a limited one (crystals)

don't get me wrong, it certainly is a direct and arguably effective marketing strategy for mall items, it's just not really user friendly (unless all the monsters in the wind chime crisis thing drop protective crystals)

Enhancement of our current system is perfect, no need to change it, the maximum fortification should also continue to +10 because of the new way that is about to be deployed will disrupt most of the game, not to mention that the game will become a capitalist, a game that does not even have enough for that playes.
do not move in our system Enhancement because it is unique, original.
