    good points you write, to make leg and myth runes harder to get would be a good solution. Currently it is too easy to get runes in general
    LeviathantheBrute the one slot 8h runes removal could be also a good solution.

      I'm not sure about limiting access to runes, even tho I agree that it is frustrating to scroll down endlessly to find the right type. I think runes would still be as important for top end GW even if access was limited. A team without runes have no chance in GW. So only those who could get enough runes would really be competitive. And I am sure that some with lots of money/time would use lots of gems to get runes, or buy an endless amount of RP/SP. Which in turn could make it harder for f2p to compete with p2p (more time investment). That would be sad :/

      Regarding "Runes should be made to be a choice", i think this was reduced by implementing squad based runes. Before you had to choose between speed, power and attack. Now you can have it all at the same time. And there is no risk involved by selecting good runes for attack. Previously this would reduce effectiveness of your defense, now you just put them in a different slot.
      I also find squad based runes annoying when playing the nexus, if i want to use different squads, i kind of don't bother because i have to either use more runes (for different slot) or change my squad which kind of defeats the point of having lots of slots for squads.

      But that is probably enough of me trying to turn the discussion of 8h runes into a discussion about squad based runes.

      How about making health / power runes with increased time have diminishing effect? 2h runes +95%, 4h runes +90%, 8h runes +85% ?

        And this is exactly what has been discussed and addressed in the thread for this event, which was linked above. The ladder cannot be completed due to the fact that battles are lasting longer - as designed and intended - and has nothing (or very little) to do with the runes.

          Incorrect. This shows the effect of battles lasting about 50% longer than they had previously, due to the new stat guidelines.

            Another thought would, which is kind of along the lines of both LeviathantheBrute and Therealpill Cosby , make the making of the 8 hour runes take up more resources. if you want to use them pay for them. e.g. a '2 hour rune' takes 4 '1 hour runes' etc etc therefore to make one 8 hour rune it would take 128 1 hour runes. this would cut back on the use of the 8 hour runes and would increase the 'rarity' but still allow ppl access to mythic runes.

            As for people arguing on the point of strategy and where guild lines lay, grow up, no one is attacking you personally we are just putting forth what we hear and what we see as an issue with a game we love. you can put your view across without trying to belittle people.

            i personally dont find it fun to grind for longer periods and get less. period. if something is done (even if it doesnt remove 8 hour runes) to change this i am all for it.

              Which is exactly what we are trying to go for - finding the balance. Check out the event thread for this, linked above, where we have discussed this.

              I'm going to close this thread at this time because I'm starting to repeat myself, and further discussion on this should continue in the PVP event thread.

              The 8 hour runes aren't going anywhere. They're doing exactly what we designed them to do and exactly what we intended them to do.

              To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:

              What happens if I break the rules?
              At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't.

              Posting Suggestions
              In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

              1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
              Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

              2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

              3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

              4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

              5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

              6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

              7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.
