    Star Coins - BB please clarify

    The new content on Test server is *Brilliant*. Obviously a few little wrinkles to iron out, but it's a breath of fresh air. Thank you.

    One thing that remains unclear is the issue of Star Coins.

    On test server the epic shop remains and the attack buffs, premium tokens, gems etc… are all still available for star coins. This came as a relief to me as I have accumulated quite a number and would like to continue to buy those items.

    Currently the position *appears* to be:

    1) We keep the star coins we have
    2) No *new* star coins will be available until players reach the new level cap (quite some time by the look of it )
    3) The options to spend previously earned star coins will remain

    Would it be possible to clarify whether this is indeed the case? Many of us now are planning how we will approach the new content, so the sooner we have the facts, the better we can plan this next exciting phase in the game
    HOTFIX!

    Also, for those who don't have many star coins, will there still be a way to buy those items once the few star coins we have remaining are spent?

    Some players have commented that there are enough levels for people to be playing for several months, even years before they reach the new cap, so it would be pretty hard when we no longer have access to those items.

    And with that will the weapon buffs we already have in star still work if and when starcoins and/or shop to spend them are removed?

    How about an option where you can choose between star coins or xp, when accepting reward, just like we have for resources to go to storage or star menu? That way star coins could stay in game.

    The German servers are a year plus older than ours, so one might conjecture that many players there have over a hundred thousand star coins still remaining.

    If BB do choose a route that penalizes players who have actively saved star coins (many did save to buy the generals that first appeared on test in the star coin shop) then perhaps pity those German players who would lose out more.

    Clarification would be greatly appreciated though... Should I be panic buying gems/prem/nukes/cats every cycle to use up my stockpile?

    If they do fully remove star coin items from shop, maybe they will remove the countdown time for re-purchase of some items (maybe not gems/prem) ... that would still allow active players to spend their hoard.

    ok, some information from the german servers, original post here

    Sterntaler bleiben erhalten, neue kann man aber dann keine mehr erlangen. Dafür gibt's ja wieder EP.
    Umwandeln stünde dem Zweck der Sterntaler ja völlig entgegen.

    1. Es gäbe Spieler, die durch die Menge der gehorteten Sterntaler ggf. sofort um viele Stufen aufsteigen würden = Verkürzung der Zeit bis das nächste Cap (75) erreicht wird.
    2. Es gibt noch viel mehr Spieler, die ihre Sterntaler eingesetzt haben, die sich dann mit Recht beschweren würden: Wieso wurde das nicht von Anfang an kommuniziert, ich habe alle Sterntaler ausgegeben, etc.

    Die fairste Lösung für alle ist also: Jeder Stufe 50 Spieler fängt auf dem gleichen Stand an.

    and translated:

    Those with star coins can keep them, but players will not be able to get more, because there is now xp.
    Converting star coins to xp would be counterproductive because:
    1) many players would go up to lvl 75 too fast
    2) players who spent their star coins would complain they should have been told from the beginning.

    It is fairer if all lvl 50 players start at the same place

    Disclaimer: I live in Germany, but am not German, so apologies for any mistakes, this is just a loose translation.
