Is a Second Unicorn (or Unicorn-style) Portal a Good Idea?   

54 members have voted

  1. 1. Would You Like to See a second Unicorn Portal, or something similar?

  2. 2. If Yes, What Legendary Drop Rate do you think Is Fair and Reasonable?

  3. 3. How many days do you think it should run? (the original portal lasted 5 days)

About a month or so into reloaded, the Developers released a special 5-day portal, the unicorn portal. aside from the perk (a unicorn horn), which I have never recovered from accidentily fusing, the purpose of the portal was simple: to help those who had been dealt a bad hand with their initial boxes to get a head start. the mission was of high easy-light moderate difficulty and dropped boxes with exceptionaly good drop rates (scaled to whether you were playing Normal, Hard or Insane).

Nobody knows the exact drop rates of the portal, because the past development team were exceptionally mysterious about drop rates in all instances, and it was a very long time ago now so my memory might be off, but I'd estimate something like this:

  • Epic - 85%
  • Legendary - 15%

"Sure buddy, and I'd like to throw it to Angelina Jolie tonight instead of my fat wife, I aint getting that either."

okay, so I hear you asking why I think its justified to drop a second unicorn portal now. well, allow me to do so in the form of a numbered bullet point list:

  1. A significant period of time has passed since the last portal of its kind, in which time a general feeling of discontent with the gap between those who do not spend or spend modestly and those who have been able to afford to buy every premium item as it came out. this feeling being the justification at the time for the last one.
  2.  we are under new development now, with a team that undoubtedly has its own ideas about the direction they want to take the game, therefore I think its fair that all those who have lived through (survived) the TS years should be granted a good way to "catch up" at least to a certain degree in order that the community as a whole can go forward into the new era excited and ready to experience the new direction. not still tearing their hair out trying to scrape rank 5 because they can't get this or that item that they need from the past era
  3. the perk is really pretty

"Did you really need a list for that, wise guy?"

No, but I figured out how to do it just now and I'll be damned if I don't.

In terms of the specific drop rate, I don't know if the devs have access to some kind of record of what it was on the original portal. I think the fuel costs were similar to Madboy 2v2 mission. but even just 5% would do a lotta good for a lotta people.

 

but that's just like, my opinion, man, vote above to express yours 👆

or tell me how much you love or hate the idea down there 👇

OOPSIE DOOPSIE MOMENT REPORT:

the 4th poll option in question 2 reads 25-20%. it SHOULD read 15-20%

apologies

so far unanimusly positive reactions, but not a lot of exposure so the sample size is small.

will bump this thread in case it just got burried too fast - if people are genuinely just like "meh" I'll let it go though.

Realistically, I think there could be more seasonal activities here.

World of Tanks (PC) run (insane) christmas missions for (very) decent rewards in game. tons of credits (gold), boosters (power kit), and some experience kits for the crew (high xp?)

They run this for about four weeks each christmas season since 2018.

Details
2020 July see WoT's 10th birthday and everyone that logged in get 7 free premium tanks (unique tanks that earn 50% more credit and xp than regular tanks, not necessarily overpowering)
There wasn't much thanksgiving, but WoT Blitz (mobile counterpart) have a cash-carrot event about once per month (small rewards without paying $5 for a "pass" and very big rewards if paid). Better than nothing for f2p, if you ask me.
But, aside from that, I genuinely think the premium pass is a very very good bargain. If I play semi-actively I can get approximately 150% rates than from the best offers. If I was less determined F2P I would have purchased it.
Both of following items cost $4.99
(reward from level 17 premium pass: 550 gold, 14K free xp (worth 560 gold + grinding), 900000 credit (worth 2.25K gold), avatar, various boosters (roughly worth 200 gold). Max pass level is 50.)
(reward from "winner's rich loot": 1250 + 750 gold)
The only other event that would persuade me to open my wallet, is Steam Summer Sale.

Yes, we had a free premium pack for this winter, and unfortunately I didn't get it even if I am there on time ☹️

But I believe we can host ,ore of the (actually) rewarding activities rather than simply giving out (small amount of) stuff. It will give a proportional boost to everyone everywhere on the ladder. Well, mostly.

____________
See, I can't insert that as collapsable snippet.

It's a FLASH GAME. At least, it once were.

Get over it

Avenger was a Unicorn? Since when did that happen?

Also, I really want the portal to be a thing now because of Univenger AND the fact that the horn isn't a rank 1 exclusive item as I originally thought... Then I'll be able to attach horns onto my mechs as I have done with my 2 pumpkins.

Yep, I want this to be a thing.

The Mid Ranks are the Holy Ranks. Change my mind.

      When someone builds their base, if they don't know how many of each building they will be able to put in, the symmetry may be messed up later on. Also, it would be more convenient if we could put all the gold mines right next to each other. So I suggest adding the ability to move the buildings around, possibly for a small gold fee.

      The auto-play feature is currently only good for grinding in campian, so why not make it easier to do that?
      When you decide to farm some coins or xp most people use the auto-play feature(I call it Jeff) but, the it has its pros and cons the main bad thing about it is that it has to be checked on every 2 or so minutes, and the ads. It would make farming levels easier if there was an option to set a certain amount of time to farm a certain level for sometime(there would be a time limit to prevent people from farming to long).
      Also whenever I farm levels with Jeff(auto-play) I have noticed that when it has no weapons in range other than repulser it fire repulser which make sense but isn't helpful so if that could be fixed that would be nice. 
      I know that currently Gato Games is focused on the SM sever right now, and I don't mind if this doesn't get implemented(which it probably won't) but this mostly just a suggestion, feel free to criticise or give suggestions on this.

      Should guarantee an L-M myth for rank one should guarantee a E-M myth r2-5 with fair chance or L-M and good chance for E-M myth low chance for L-M myth r6-9 everything else stays the same.
