A No Holds Barred Approach.

>Fight Club Nerfed Big Time / Players Not Happy

>

Well Zynga has definitely made alot of players mad. It was nice they finally opened the new regions of Italy, it was nice they released some really good loot with it & it was nice they also gave use a few new items in the fight club. BUT they totally nerfed the Fight Club.


First off, they took away the achievements & reward points you got with them. So now those players who still didnt get them are out of luck.


Secondly they increased the price for all the items. Yes they did add some new loot thats pretty good and yes they did take away the timer which alot of players did hate, but the cost of the loot has gone up big time. 


Take a look at the picture below, these are the best loot items available in the fight club and they now cost 500 Victory coins. Very expensive. 



Dont think so, here is the math. 500 Victory Coins to buy, lets say you have 1000 stamina and after you burn that off on average you should get at least 200 victory coins at the current drop rate. But wait it costs 500 coins, so now you need to burn another 1000 stamina and that costs 10 reward points to get in the market place. Ok now you burned that but wait you need 100 more coins to get it well back to the market place to buy some more now you go through that and you now have enough to buy it with a little left over. so it cost you 20 reward points for the item that with the release of the the new high end loot in the regions of Italy will soon be obsolete. You do the math was it worth it.


You could of been doing the jobs in Italy and getting better loot. But wait that costs energy and guess what they removed all the good energy boosts from the fight club.

Yes these are gone and it has now been replaced with the nerfed version which is only 1 of them and costs 100 Victory coins & 5 reward points. Plus you have to wait 18 hours before you get another one.

So we went from being able to get a total of 4 energy packs a day to 2 of them and the cost went up the the new one as well. The most expensive one was a 25 coin/ 7 reward points with an 8 hour timer to a 100 coin / 5 reward point one with a 18 hour timer. 

This seems to be one of the biggest nerfs that Zynga has ever made to the game for it’s players. And I can tell you from talking to other players and looking at all the boards,blogs and comments across the news feed that they players are pissed off big time. Did they think we wouldn’t notice this being how the new regions were released and we would be busy with that. 

Hello McFly, it takes energy to do the new regions. 

I can only hope Zynga will see the error of their ways and restores the fight club back to the way it was and leave the new loot in there as we really did new new items especially the fighters who and basically are way past level 21 in the fight club, as it gives them something they can spend their coins on. 

Hey if you do restore it why not add STAMINA refills after all this is a fight club right and we use stamina to fight right. And even if you dont restore it just add stamina refills at a reasonable cost will ya !!! 

Fight Club NERFED !!!

  7. >Well I don't like that they have nerfed the refills.However increasing the prices is TOTALLY reasonable. It is not unreasonable for fighters to have well over 100K in VC. So we will use the 100K number.100,000 / 25 = 4,000 items they could buy501 * 2(attack+defense items) = 10021002 * 4 (weapons armor vehicle animal) = 4008So at 100K of VC you could almost completely restock your equipment even IF you didn't have anything better. Which anyone that has that many will….

  8. >WELL, on the brighter side (eternal optimist here), Spock has produced a nifty BM to purchase these weapons from the FC w/out having to click in and out hundreds of times. I had over 500K VC, and purchasing 1 by 1 was tedious. You can find the BM at Spocks website – stable. Keep up the good work in keeping us ever informed!

  10. >I don't like the new fight club at all.I counted on the energy refills, and used them every day..plus if you reach higher levels in fight mastery you do deserve some kind of reward.I mean after all it means we have been playing hard…and yes..we should be able to get stam too.The new loot looks good..and some of the new loot in fight club is good for now..but it will soon be obsolete

  12. >Hate the new way fight club is. I never understood why we didnt get to buy stam refills in fight club but I did buy the 2RP and the 7RP energy everyday. Now I just wont be able to play as much nor will I be spending even the little bit of money I did to buy the FC energy refills. If they dont want money to be spent then that was a great way to make that happen.
