Talk to Norskie77 about using the merc tier system.

I have yet to see any biofuel bengals, and I think I only saw 2 shinobi hellions. I know there are a couple of Mac Haggards and Deadeyes, but all in all Lethals from pacts seem incredibly elusive since that first time Fista's were available for draw and a couple dozen of them came out.

And when you consider (as talked about in my post on the suggestion forum) that no mercs other than those select lethals are worth anything in the long run, it makes buying mercs a HUGE waste of money. you have 99.999% chance of spending a lot of money on absolutely nothing.

Which is why Dakota needs a complete overhaul of the merc system. A blood brothers type of system DOES NOT WORK in a market of a few thousand people who have no incentive at all to drop the thousands of dollars needed to have a shot at pulling a lethal from a pact.

This.


They need to realize that the over-powering urge to keep dropping cash to get another pull at the slot machine lever isn't going to work with the kind of numbers Fatal Frontier has vs. Blood Brothers.

I still liked my idea a while back in my rant thread that I posted in the Suggestions thread about breaking the game up into 3 tiers for beginning, intermediate, and advanced players or just 2 (beginning and advanced) and just make it easier for players just starting out to get Lethals by competing in a pool of players who will have similar squads. The lethal being offered wouldn't be as good as the advanced event one, but it would at least be something to get them moving towards getting to play in the advanced events with better rewards.

Ryback, that is a really solid idea.

I just don't know what to believe. The Dev's hop on the forum here and post about how they ARE NOT taking the game in direction of blood brothers, and get all butt hurt when we point out the similarities, but then keep moving in a direction that appears like they are blindly taking pages out of blood brothers playbook praying that it will work.

All I want is for them to believe that these are two separate different games as much as they say that they are, and start acting like it.

I started playing BB at the beginning of that game (I missed getting a sehkmet, but not by much.) and their strategy for getting players to join when the game was smaller was NOTHING like what it is today, where they have tens of thousands of players. Back then they got people to join by MAKING THE GAME FUN AND ACCESSIBLE. Then once they got 5 million players, they could stick awesome mercs in pacts and watch the dollars flood in.

Dakota needs to focus on the first, and not get distracted by the second.

Doesn't change that they have 3/4 of all the mercs in the game sitting as totally unusable and irrelevent. This is my suggestion:

CREATE A TWO TIER MERC PURCHASE-

ALL current merc pact mercs become "Beginniner tier" Mercs, all bronze coins are "Beginner tier" coins and can be picked up for free commonly as they are now. Killstreaks 1-15 award "Beginner Tier" coins. Pacts of rare "Beginner Tier" Mercs can be bought for in game credits.

Silver merc coins become "Advanced tier Mercs." They are still available from gold chests, killsteak 18-30, and as rewards for completing levels. Fill this teir up with UC (stuff like Crndl Major)-Epics that are actually feasible to be used, like pact variants of EVE and Switchblade Buzzard, or even this new bring your friends back to the game epic, Abaddon. Ones that are are useful to more advanced players. Make these pacts cost Mobacoins.

It would solve the problems of making mobacoin pacts not worth it because there is SO MUCH OLD OUTDATED CRAP that drawing something worth while is almost non existant.
