It great reading over the feedback within the thread and it nice to see part of the community has understood the reasons behind the changes.
A lot of the points raised within the thread are really good on a "Overall" content change, leveling, regen, class balance etc. These are points we hope to look into this year with changes to the xp curves, levels and balancing.
We understand heroes who have reached end game will not see the benefits of a low level area change as it is an area they never really venture into as mentioned in
"At level 232, the only reason for me to go to Heroes Landing is when I need to rebirth."
What Heroes Landing re-design was was not content for heroes say 30 - 220 it was for those who initially drop off and never get past 2....
In-game imagine we get say 1000 joining in a day, all new installs never played the game before. By kill a Pict we have 900, by Flamebringers we have 600, by the Tar Barrels we have 400 and so on.
The changes to the landing zone and the quest balance are all in an effort to help new starts to the game and get them interested in Celtic Heroes, this is not deception as some have so called it, that is common design sense.
We are looking into all the issues raised 20 - 220 these are all overall changes we hope to make to the game, we do understand we have a massive playerbase who have reached these levels and want to help them.
Another point I feel the need to raise is that we have multiple teams here working on many areas of content; Design Team, Art Team, Programming, QA, Support and I guess myself.
We understand the frustration players have with certain topics and want to work towards lots of these, as of this year we have cut down on events and have focused more towards permanent long term and horizontal content, this design change was based on player feedback.
I hope I have answered a lot of the questions presented and explained further as to why the changes were made!
