Stat Cap and XP from Snacks and Games

AuthorMessage
Administrator
Previously players were seeing that their Ancient pets are only receiving 1 experience point per game after their stats are at maximum.

Now players will receive full experience from the pet mini-games even after the stat max is reached. In other words if the player gains a +4 to a stat, then they will gain +4 experience if that stat is at max.

Snacks will also provide full experience from eating the snack, even if their stats are at max. If the player feeds their pet say... a Fancy Yogurt and gains +15 Strength, +15 Will, and +20 Power and is at the stat cap. The pet will still gain 50 Exp from eating the snack.

Full XP will be granted for stat overflows. For example, let's say my Will is 249/250 and I ace the cannon game and then eat a Golden Biscuit ( 4 Game + 4 Snack ) = 8 Will. That would normally give me 1 Will and 1 Exp. Instead, it will now give me 1 Will and 8 Exp.

This should make getting your pet to Ancient must less painful.

I just want to give our players a heads up about some issues we are going to address shortly.

Currently players are seeing that their Ancient pets are only receiving 1 experience point per game after their stats are at maximum.

After the next maintenance period, players will receive full experience from the pet mini-games even after the stat max is reached. In other words if the player gains a +4 to a stat, then they will gain +4 experience if that stat is at max.

Snacks will also provide full experience from eating the snack, even if their stats are at max. If the player feeds their pet say... a Fancy Yogurt and gains +15 Strength, +15 Will, and +20 Power and is at the stat cap. The pet will still gain 50 Exp from eating the snack.

This news excites me! I reported this in TEST but I guess perhaps the fix was larger than expected so it took time to do it. Thankfully, now we can get to Epic! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thank you for fixing this as I have maxed out my ancient school pets stats including energy. I was feeling trapped in a corner for being so loving to my pet. :-D 8)

I think this is a great move that will encourage players to continue using the pet system. :-D
