    • Naruto: Road to Transformation contract, Prologue - episode 1 out of 667

      Dear, fellow players,

      at this point in time I am sure you are all aware of the recent "unintended" changes in the pricing of "Transformation contract". Gameforge have already made official statement regarding the issue available here.

      Readers are advised to wear a tinfoil hat for best immersion results. :awink:

      Ever since the arrival of patch 6 a noticeable amount of players (in my estimation up to 10% of the player-base) have, having exhaustively analysed available patch item compensations and exchange documents, invested their resources smartly, which allowed them to purchase, not 1, not 2, but 11+ Transformation contracts a week exclusively by expending in-game currency (Kinah).


      The hardworking employees at Gameforge HQ tasked with the meticulous monitoring of key in-game resource distribution and amounts have scientifically determined that 11 or more is, at the very least, 11-times as much as if not more than 1. Since they had projected a 1-Transformation-contract-influx per player per week, and that was no longer the case, they hurried to alert the higher-ups about the "issue".


      The higher-ups, however, tasked with such an important decision, although overall highly qualified felt they were lacking in fields of both economics experience and expertise and therefore decided to pass this decision onto the marketing department.


      The marketing team examined all available data, made tests and ran simulations but regretfully they all produced the same results - the increased amount of in-game currency Transformation scroll purchases are negatively affected real world money shop sales.


      Ultimately the higher-ups were left with little to no choice but to manufacture a "bug" preventing any player from purchasing Transformation contracts in-game until they can find an alternative way to make more mone... I mean a more suitable solution that would benefit everyone.


      And everyone lived happily ever after.

      ~The End~

      *credit roll*

      • Let's assume x amount of players read patch and exchange documents before the patch
      • Let's assume same x amount of players purchased something like Altgard teleportation scrolls at 1.7k Kinah each before the patch which got exchanged with Integarated return scrolls that could be sold back to any NPC merchant at 9.8k Kinah each after the patch
      • At this point we are in 6.2 and those x amount of players exchanged part of their prepatch kinah instead of at a rate of 1.3 m kinah /8.7 m kinah exchanged for Gold bar (essentially 0.15-times) at a rate of 9.8 m kinah /1.7 m kinah (5.8-times) - someone who invested 2b this way now has 11.6b new kinah instead of 0.3b new kinah post patch
      • Let's assume most of those x amount of players knew the Transformation system was account-wide and moved enough kinah to each of their 10 alts or even made new level 10 characters (Broker access to receive Kinah) to do it more than 11 times and bought Transformation contracts on each on them
      • I personally got Ancient transformations from a Gold sand shop scroll bought with Kinah

    • i dont doubt for a minute that they think transform scroll is too cheap on the kinah shop because of the 11 character thing and want to make it less accessible to alts.
      i for one didnt like the fact that working overtime at work for 2 hours was already more rewarding than farming 2 hours ingame in terms of getting contracts, which is beyond ridiculous already
      this will just further increase the distaste for the game

      of all items in kinah shop, transformation contracts got changed, funny isnt it? they knew whats going on and now they act like, its just a bug.
    • Remember when they nerfed Luna and how long it took to give us an alternative way of getting the items without (attention: OMEGALUL) afking on alts getting free stuff?

      Same crap happening now, with the most essential item, transformation contract.

      They’ll probably make this item once a week account wide and raise price to 50 mill or smth.
    • So, because you didn't want people to buy scrolls twice in a period of a week, because of maintenance + Wednesday resets, you made it literally impossible for people to buy them from Monday to Wednesday. So that they could only buy one scroll.
      I mean, nothing else explains really to how does THIS specific item get two of their values changed. Amount and Currency.
      Why didn't anything else get changed?

      If those scrolls don't return to 12.375.000 kinah (or what ever it used to cost) or less, and soon. I sense a new wave of complaints and people quitting.

      I dunno what is happening , you dont know what is happening , no one knows what is happening. IF , and i say it with a big IF , the bug "occured" for that reason , its really pathetic from their side.They have been times that i was like "they cant go any lower than this" , they proved me wrong ,but this time seriously doing all this for the reason u guys imply , its even beyond my conception, thats why its really hard to believe that.

      Abusers have always existed , its should be responsibility of Gameforge to not let these things happen, and even if they do happen , they should either punish those who did that or compensate the other players who didn't . They do the exact opposite , they usually "punish" the players that didnt abuse such things by not giving them a helping hand. I wont tell them how to do their job , they should know , like even if i did tell them , they wouldnt listen. Personally , i dont farm with 11 alts , i dont even have 11 alts.I usually sell stuff from alts from servers that im not playing anymore , get new kinah and get like 1 - 2 transformation from sand shop , which are always white. Gratz on the ancient one , i guess u were really lucky :) . But those who went p2w , or those like me who are stuck up with a tiger and a lepharist transformation , their patience runs low .I dont even care anymore , my perception of MMORPGs are that you should work hard to get strong stuff like gear or transformation in this situation. The whole thing has been turned into a casino that p2w are gambling for their stats (attack speed , movement speed etc.) and the free players even if they try hard they can't get pass that paywall by the amount of effort they gave , but by the amount of luck they had.The so called "pay for convienience shop" is purelly a p2w roullete , which not only gives HUGE advantage towards wallet warriors but puts free players behind a paywall for basic fuctions such us fighting ,running , hunting or fleeing from a fight.Whoever denies and thinks that there is an ingame way with this is delusional.
    • I agree with all your text however not everybody is able to get 12kk kinah on every single alt in order to buy those transformation contracts but yeah lets be honest the only "bug" its on those transformations scrolls its more than obvious the intentions behind it, nothing different from 5.8 when Hero Trials only "bug" the ones that gave APES all the others worked perfectly fine. Gameforge intentions are obvious make the people pay at least 500€ in transformation scrolls at shop or play in slowmotion after all this patch is not much different than 5.8 some features are only accessible to big wallets.
    • I wrote all of these yesterday that nobody knows. The thing is that i know a lil bit of programming and i also know that just switching the value and the item needed(kinah,not bars) shouldnt take more than some minutes/hours to patch it up. I dunno maybe aion's cry engine is too complicated for that company. I get it that they only ever developed browser based games and all client based are just being published by them but seriously... do they really need patch from KR to fix that? No one has any idea about how to fix manually some things ? Or they leave it there intentionally? Who knows..

      Yes, we do need fix patch from Korea (we don't change staff manually just like that ourselves, most of the time NCSoft has to provide us with settings or scripts) and we are all this time in contact with them. Hope soon we will be able to share info.
      Im a little bit curious , i dont know if you are allowed to answer that tho .Is gameforge able to do such things like changes , i mean do they have the programming skills/knowledge needed or they are being restricted doing such changes by NCSoft?
    • Not only we have an issue with the system but now you have completely removed it except shop. I can't find the words to describe the incompetence of this matter.

      Hey wait.. you dont need a fix from korea - dont you people have daily-backups? Run the tape backwards who gives a nyerk about this silly event - What the hell is going on here!?
