Yeah, I just got 3 of them in PvP. Funny to see + 1 concrete. Wonder what the stats are on it? Can't be any worse than a tree sniper.

I do not see the blocks anywhere, just been keeping a manual count. Up to 7. I think when you get 10 blocks you can trade them for some other worthless construction material. Has anyone sent a ticket in on this yet?

Here is the response I got:

"Thank you for your question regarding the new Concrete drops. Concrete was released early, but it will be used in the upcoming Modern War 3.0 update, which introduces a few new features to Modern War. You can find out more information on this update here: http://product.gree.net/us/event/world-domination

More information will be available on the new features and what to do with this blocks when the update is released. This update will be releasing very soon and we apologize for any confusion that the early drops of the Concrete may have caused you."

Interesting. When will this update happen?

From PvP attacks, they drop as loot sometimes.

Glad to see this thread, was beginning to think i had seen things. I guess you will use it to fortify your base or something along that line.

Mine don't drop as infantry, only as an image of a concrete block. I am keeping tabs manually on the number I collect.

Someone said the concrete blocks can be exchanged for gold.
I will believe it, if I see it.

I think I'll throw my concrete blocks at Fruit Flies - LoL

I've gotten about 8 so far - but can't find them anywhere in my inventory.

Heck if they did that (trade 1 brick for 1 gold bar) I bet almost every camper would take down their tent and start leveling up doing whatever it takes to find concrete/gold

Maybe the concrete blocks are being stored the same place as the invisible boosts?

I think the concrete will only stick around when you upgrade to MW 3.0. The new version must be close to being done.

Dhusagar
12-01-2012, 03:15 PM
The concrete blocks will be used in version 3. Don't know if you will be able to carry them forward to the upgrade.

I wouldn't be surprised if they are in the data base for the players individual account. However the current version of MW doesn't know what to do with them.

I've gotten 10+ from PvP but nothing shows in inventory... Maybe the blocks will be like the TP & Turkey explosives in CC...? just a guess.

It's not an issue, and you don't need to report it, it's just something which will have a use in the next update. For now it doesn't have a use, but it was added in for technical reasons (basically making sure everything fits together properly when we release the update).

Thanks CJ! Looking forward to our new MW. It's like Christmas for the big kids. ;)

Anyway to account them? Or it is only a trial of the new version? When should we expect it?

Damn, if there was only a way to communicate things like this in advance. I have a funny feeling it would cut back on the amount of tickets they had to process. Just a thought.

I imagine they are all sitting in the data base for your account, however, the current version of MW doesn't know what to do with them, so nothing is happening with the blocks. Unless GREE decides to purge all the concrete blocks from the data bases, and it doesn't sound like they are planning to do that, once the upgrade is out and you upgrade to MW 3.0, they should suddenly appear.

Respone rom ticket was fast.
Basicly they released the drops early.

From the 3.0 FAQs

How do I build fortifications?
Only the faction leader can build fortifications. However, all faction members can donate cash and concrete towards the construction of fortifications.

I have looted them but appear never to have one looted from me, does anyone know if they can be stolen or is it a "one way" loot item?

The concrete block is for building walls so your enemy cant climb over and steal your fries.

Doesnt take a rocket scienctist to figure that one out
