    Free skills reset event !

    It will be nice if you give players a chance to reset skills unlimited times or for a few times without gems for a few days, especially after the game changes, and players get more experience playing the game, and with levels, as for example after XXL content the deposit found for saltpeter, titanium, and granite.

    Also with more levels players maybe was think about gold chain and now they need to care about those new things, or maybe players are now focused on PvP or want PvP so they need to change skills for iron.

    Many examples I can give, even its a chance for players to complete achievements.

    Even the scouts might be messed up with timing (especially after the last update) the artifact search now is somehow different between explorers.

    As much as I would like to see it I cant see BB ever doing it.

    Its not like a free move week as the building moves out of a free move week can be done ingame resource or gem, with books its loose half or pay gems.

    The main reason I think it will never happen is because many players has used gem reset and loose half books so there would naturally be a lot of anger from players like these and rightfully so.

    Currently with books if dont want to spend gems on a reset then I think the loose half is fair and its actually always been pretty balanced in the sense you pay gem or loose time.

    I just think it create a lot unrest in the game and as such maybe leave the reset how it is.

    The only time I could conceive of a free skill reset happening would be if new skills were introduced, as yet that has not happened, despite this some demand this every-time something new is added to the game.

    As yet there has been nothing to justify the demand.

    I'd love a chance to reskill for free

    I have done so in the past a couple of times paying for it, but it wouldn't be something i'd pay gems for/sacrifice books for again.
    The need to reskill is still there for me though, the game I play now is very different to the game I played when i skilled and would do so much differently with a chance at a reset - especially with the new content

    Personally, I think the new granite, saltpetre and titanium mines, plus the new prolonged treasure searches are content enough to justify this. All my scouts are geared to artefact searches (tbh I wouldnt really want them changed to anything else, but some might). Just saying though, that content has changed since the skills were introduced so it is a valid suggestion by the OP

    What those content changes require is that the current skills be modified to include that content, not new skills which would require a total rework of the currently available science system.

    I also happen to think that at this current time with the information posted on the test servers it's even more unlikely that we would see a free reset in the immediate future due to a potential to exploit it and bypass the current skill up system.

    + 1 for queen and jolly,

    and personally I'm really done an expensive (it was 20/21 for my lucky) skill reset , and I did a lot of scarified half of my skill books for free, but this is before XXL come to live, I was reset skills because of my new levels, but it will cost a lot of gems if I want to do because the new content, SO i'll never do this again, so BB will not get the gems for that, i would like to stay at my point currently, against payign any gem to reset anything, so the free skills reset day will make us happy, and will not make BB lose any money, the side effect for this event will make players more interesting in game.

    Anyway, I don't want to think about BB things, it is their matters not mine, but as a player, I'll be happy and will make me like the game more, and stay more, and pay for premium more days

    ----------
    Let me disagree with you Dorotheus, the XXL is the biggest new content after PvP system to this game, the new adventures, materials, deposit, lands, levels, the materials like granite getting so cheap, so who who knows, maybe so, it will be worth to let titanium down and rebuild again is not pain, so I do need to search about it each time, like current granite deposit, tell me who refill it these days like before 2 months?

    And for scouts, maybe I was care about loots , but now I want to focus on adventures, or vice versa, because the new levels, or content.

    I would be thankful if you can give me an example that things that you can say it need a "justify the demand".

    I'm going to second this, because what? Any information on the 'bypassing the current skill up system' would also be appreciated, for the same reason.



    While a "free" reset seems unlikely: this was said not too long ago on the Test server. Will it happen? No idea, but the discussion is on the table.

    This would somewhat diminish some of the achievements....
    get achievement x,
    reset,
    get achievement y,
    reset
    etc.
    Sorry, but I've slept since then...

    People might get extra Achievement points by paying a discounted price? Oh no!

    Really though, even the "quests" to skill specialists come so early they're not exactly helpful and many people would likely have waited until they had a fancier specialist or had any idea what skills would be most useful and how slow and expensive book creation becomes before investing books.

    Personally, if BB go with a discount reskill event I will have absolutely no problem if anyone wants to pay to skill and reset just for Achievement points. Those achievements don't even have other rewards.
