    I wonder..

    I have two questions that I thought might make GREE ponder a little bit on how they're going about the problem's they're trying to solve.

    1- Prizes don't stack. Ok. You don't want high levels to have 1000's% worth of mods, but you also want the high paying 2% to not complain and quit spending, so you offer stacking mods to the T10, remove them from the T50-100, and give small stacking mods to everyone else. Isn't there a smarter way to go about this so 80% of your player population, that combined outweigh your 2%, doesn't quit spending because no matter how much they spend they can't catch up?

    2- Insane high level boss tiers. You can't take back the 1000's% of mods all the high levels have obtained, and you can't stop these highly modded accounts from being sold so they never go away and no one can catch up, so you make epic boss insanely easy for low levels and utterly insane for high ones. Alright, but now you have low levels with 100s of millions of RAW attack so instead of having sold accounts.. pretty soon you're going to have low level boss killers selling their hits. Unforeseen consequence I might add. So how does GREE plan to go about fixing this, and will it involve screwing over the 80% yet again?

    EDIT: Low level boss killers will get here even quicker if you do like you did in Modern War and made raid boss damage depends on level as well

    This was hard to sort through. But I have to agree that it's unfortunate that the last Boss rendered old well stocked accounts relatively weak. I can feel some sympathy for the guys who poured real funds and lots of hours into building mega players rendered run of the mill in just a week.

    Hey Evan1000,

    I've been seeing a lot of jazz about the low level players being able to do the Epic Bosses with ease, but can you elaborate on how they do it? I'm just curious, as I've seen a level ~20 with ~1-2mil stats from the beginning of the event go all the way to ~30mil in stats. How did they do it? I think I could have done it if I kept up the killing, but I was getting too lazy. Lol.

    Yeah killing bosses is the fundamental idea here. Tap tap tap. It can be complicated, but don't give up!

    Let me rephrase my question. What's the difference between a level 1 doing the EB, a level 100 and a level 200? I thought the EB had the same hp for everyone...

    You'd think so, but no.

    Boss health is tiered based on your level, I forget the tiers, like 1-20 21-50 etc.. which is FINE, except for the fact that 250+ tiers have absolutely INSANE boss health, and the levels beforehand aren't exactly a walk in the park either

    It's not just that health for tiers above level 200 (and perhaps 151-200) are overly high (particularly for 251+), but that health for lower tiers is absurdly low.

    Dipstik has said here how as an experiment he once created a mini for a boss event. Even starting from scratch he could kill 100 without breaking sweat. This was true before syndicates began and stat inflation has just made it ridiculous.

    I don't see a problem with an easy epic boss if it's easy for everyone. But I agree it shouldn't be one free hit for each 100.. especially if it's taking a guy over 250 levels higher than him 53 paid

    Yeah you usually don't see anything you don't want to see.
