    Well holy shit!

    This game might just have some fight left in it after all.

    Especially impressed with the compensation for the tier skill.

    Got to say mindark, this is a huge step in the right directiot, good job

    Given the change to the item tiering process described above, the Tier Upgrader profession will no longer have any purpose, and will be removed completely in early 2020. Any remaining Tier Upgrading skill points will then be converted to their corresponding Tier Upgrading Skill Implant value and compensated at a markup of 20000%.

    In the meantime, anyone wishing to convert their existing Tier Upgrading skill points to PED can list Tier Upgrading Skill Implants on the auction and a MindArk Official avatar will periodically (once per week) buy any implants listed for 20000% markup or lower.
    This is pretty damn cool of MA. +rep for compensating the players at FMV. That's awesome to see.

    Overall, this update lowers the cost to tier. Which had become a serious barrier to most. I know a lot of gear that wasn't getting tiered, and likely will now after this update.

    I'm curious if Opals quantities and drop rates will be adjusted with this update as well. We'll see...


    Enhancers inserted into (L)imited items will now break much less often.
    100% of the Trade Terminal value of enhancers will be returned in the form of Shrapnel when an enhancer breaks.
    This is game changing as well! Nice update.

    That's going to further increase the sales of enhancers. Which in turn will increase markup up on the ingredients used to make enhancers. Cool cool. Excited for this.

    Ok, am I understanding this part correctly:

    Given the change to the item tiering process described above, the Tier Upgrader profession will no longer have any purpose, and will be removed completely in early 2020. Any remaining Tier Upgrading skill points will then be converted to their corresponding Tier Upgrading Skill Implant value and compensated at a markup of 20000%.

    In the meantime, anyone wishing to convert their existing Tier Upgrading skill points to PED can list Tier Upgrading Skill Implants on the auction and a MindArk Official avatar will periodically (once per week) buy any implants listed for 20000% markup or lower.
    So, I can just wait, and my skills will be converted into a chip that MA buys from me and I don't have to do anything? This method saves me the cost of an ESI chip, right?

    Or, I can chip out my skills and sell them on the AH if I want PED before 2020. Which, this method is far worse given the option to just wait and let MA cover the ESI fee. The only way I see this option of value is for tier upgrading skill chips that already exist, or in the case someone is broke and needs PED now.

    Am I understanding this right? Is that how you guys read it as well?

    Okaaay - sounds interesting at least.
    Is there going to be any way to make sense of what this all means if you are an enhancer noob?
    I know high-tier items can be great in events for a competitive advantage, but what about most stuff in most hunting/mining situations?
    Will there generally be any point in the future of having a lvl x pixie or a level x opalo - and with what enhancers?

    Do enhancers such as economy even have a function now that loot is based on cost to kill? Questions, questions...

    Edit: I should add I mean on unl here. I realise you might want a high mu (L) item to last longer and use a slot if other enhancers aren't more useful... Call me an advanced noob if you like, but I've never seen the point of range enhancing (for a shot or two at best) or skill enhancing a weap I wouldn't use anyway...

    Gotta be honest, bittersweet pill to swallow, though I'm in a better position than others as I didn't hit the go button on tier 7-10 yet on the bc80.

    But that's about ~20k tt I'd like to have had back.

    I'm glad the Tier skills will be compensated. Good move.

    Well I just lost at least 20k value on my gun that I had just started trying to sell.

    On the other hand things just improved massively moving forward.

    NOW DROP SOME FUCKING OPALS.
