  • Voice your opinions about RUNES! ITS ABOUT TIME!

    Hey guys, I am not sure if there is already an existing thread concerning runes since I recently joined the forum, and haven't had the time to scroll through thousands of topics. I have been playing HODA for about 2 years now, and I noticed that admins haven't done much to improve the UI for runes.

    These are some of my personal suggestions for the admins to consider, in ways to give everyone a better gaming experience.

    1. Could you kindly switch the order of the runes and push the bonus gold or bonus exp runes towards the top and the other runes after at the bottom. For instance, currently, the very first category of runes is bonus EXP --> Power rune (the fist icon) --> speed rune --> health rune --> THEN the greed/bonus gold rune. So my suggestion is to shift the bonus gold rune right after the bonus EXP.

    ---This is because I feel most of the players find themselves using these 2 types of runes much more than any other runes (unless they grinding for top ladder and are boosting themselves with some legendary runes.) Even when I climb the ladder in the events, I still try to find someone in top 1-15 that my squad can beat, and I repeatedly grind off that top person and get full banner every stamina spent. When I find someone as such, I no longer need any rune boost except for bonus gold and exp.

    Secondly, I'm sure many players still purchase the 1.5k Soldier Pack instead of the 25k Knight Pack. Hoarding this = abundance in runes. At one point, I had 1,700 runes and I just gave up on "Scroll scroll scroll show next 20. And Repeat x20" to get to the bottom runes.

    2. Maybe increase to "Show next 40" instead of "show next 20" just like it is for the heroes/toons!

    3. Maybe categorize runes from "Legendary --> epic --> rare & lower" for easier navigation.

    4. I came across someone's comment on the thread about rune combination like how a "Horadric Cube" would work in Diablo. His idea was to combine lower tier runes with a varying chance of successfully (100% for common - uncommon, 90% for uncommon - rare, 80% for rare - epic, 75% for epic - legendary. This is a rough idea, not actual well thought out/balanced numbers as I am no game developer.) forging that rune. For instance, combine 4 rare runes for 1 epic rune and 4 epic runes for 1 legendary rune. I thought this was somewhat a good idea, but may take a lot of work.

    5. Really consider option 1. I would love to see Gold and Exp runes right after one another, and I'm sure many agree with me.

    6. Comment below! All of your other amazing ideas are welcome. But please don't be the reason why this world burns by bringing negative comments and opinions. Keep them to youself if you're that person. The point of this thread is to make enough noise for the admins to see just how much better the gameplay experience can be if they do something about runes.

    7. Again, I'm tired of scrolling and clicking "show next 20" to get to my 700th rune where my rare Gold runes are which I never get to and they just expire. It takes up too much time and unnecessary effort.

    I have to agree with just about everything you had to say. Runes are useful but organization needs a lot of work.

              I was joking about the silver.. hehe.. That is why i mentioned it.. since it's not even viewable at a reasonable time frame.. you'd spend 20 minutes to get to it i'm sure..



              AGGREGATE
              AGGREGATE
              aggregate
              aggregate
              aggregate.


              Okay.. i'm done being OCD about this...
              But yes.. the picture i made.. illustrates what I'd like to see.. the runes aggregated (grouped, combined.. in piles).. by type.. and by expiration time. As illustrated in picture.. 2 health runes.. 1 is expiring in 1 day.. another is in 8 days.. and you could have say.. 20 Legendary health runes expiring in that 1 day... and 6 of the same type expiring in 8 days.. but nicely aggregated or piled up in the rune listing. Much nicer display..
              I do not know the technical hurdles and feasibility.. but this would be my ideal..

                Hahha..good illustration. Hope we can sell the runes as well...so many wasted runes, if u were to sell 500 gold a piece I will be millionaire.

                  Good ideas, but it will take a client update to pull off. How about it CG? Are we ever going to see another client update?

                    I love it, & the fact that you went an extra mile to provide an illustration even!

                    And yes to being able to sell runes. But I believe that is wishful thinking. Or maybe add a "remove" or "delete" runes function, I will gladly remove all my stun reduction and damage reduction runes (either the biggest joke of a rune or I don't fully understand the mechanic of this rune).

                        How about recycling the Champion interface? The one where you can see just the Heroes of one faction etc. An 'All Runes' button at the top and when you click it you get the option of seeing 'XP Runes' , 'Damage Runes' and so on. Shouldn't that be possible without writing entirely new scripts? The Runes have to have a category already or they wouldn't show up sorted.
                        That aside, Therealpill Cosby's illustration looks great. I especially like the part where i can actually see my rare Runes.

                          If i remember correctly, an updated navigation for the runes is already on their to do list. Just needs time.


                          Something like the champion interface would realy be best i think.

                          Stacking would realy be great. But nearly impossible. Due to allmost every rune has a different time when they expire.


                          I Would love to be able to sell unneeded runes for gold. Got so many that i never need or use.

                            One idea is to simply display the next rune getting expired (still stacked), in this way, you could certainly know which rune to use before expiration.

                              Categories, like with the heroes, would be nice. It would also be nice to be able to quickly dispose of unwanted runes to clear space, like perhaps being able to multi-select so many runes and hit a 'trash' button. I really only care for EXP, gold, speed and power runes. And of the rare rarity and higher. So, I do get plenty of runes that just take up space.

You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                              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. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                              Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                              For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                              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.

                              In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
