View Full Version : Adding Star dust to chest spins!



Phenteo

Greetings HEXers!

Thank you very much for all of the bug reports that we've seen so far. The test server has been very busy with many players jumping on and testing the new content out and we can see that everyone is excited. One change that a good portion of you have already noticed is that star dust now drops from Chest rolls from all sets. We already know many of you have spent large sums of gold on these chest rolls and we worked with the great DataDragon to run a script to go back through all chest rolls and see what you should have received. As we were intending for you to receive dust from chest rolls (as it wasn't implemented yet) and we always want to do right by our players, we will be inserting the items into your account sometime shortly after set 3 launch.

You guys are an amazing community and, as always, thank you for your feedback and support!

Thank Cory and Chark too! They're the ones who made the final decision. I am communicating out the decisions. ;)

I honestly thought that rolls started long before the logging was reliable enough. Colour me impressed.

I still don't feel this is required in the least. But any grumpiness left will be erased when I get a load of stardust showered on me, so maybe I should have been batting for the other team.

...That came out far too homoerotic. Time to call it a night.

My faith that HexEnt will always do right by the players continues to be unshaken.

I didn't spin very many chests since I was afraid of wasting the gold too early on an incomplete feature. It's extremely cool that CZE is handling this the way they are; in the future I'll have even more confidence that I'm not "making a mistake" when opening things.

I've got this sneaking suspicion that the real reason that Hex is digital is that it would be impossible to be half this generous in a physical TCG. Because, damn.

Barkam
06-18-2015, 07:54 PM
Wow. Amazing!

I am curious how they'll roll out new features in the future that are attached to old features. This shows us that they'll retroactively provide the benefit which gives us all players confidence to always consume/partake in all features the moment they are available. Big plus for the players and the game. Nice job, Hex Ent. Your stance always gives me confidence to continue to support you. I am glad to see that you have the infrastructure to make this happen.

Well, there's a nice bonus! And now the threads complaining about it will stop, which is equally nice! Woo! :D

At this point I wouldn't' be surprised if DataDragon has some sort of record of people who were interested during the Kickstarter but decided not to for whatever reason.

Amazing news. HEXEnt gets it right again. I love you guys.

On another note this patch seems AMAZING. I am happy to wait for this patch with how many features, bells, whistles, and polish it has.

Datadragon strikes me as a Sheldon Cooper of Hex, probably has a poop schedule on the Employee fridge.




And yes I mean that as a compliment :)

Extremely generous guys, was not expecting this tbh (and I wouldn't have minded if it didn't happen), so props to the team for making it possible/happen.

I am in awe of all the data logging capabilities you have. I would love to see how and what info is stored.

Fantastic stuff and yay for inbound dust when set 3 hits (unless I got super unlucky and never rolled any!)

Fyren
06-18-2015, 08:25 PM
Well, there's a nice bonus! And now the threads complaining about it will stop, which is equally nice! Woo! :D

Oh, come on, there were two threads questioning the status, and they got merged. :p

This is fantastic news! Thanks so much :D Now to decide what I want to use all that dust on....

I would also like to say that this patch is insanely good. I only had a few mins on over breakfast, not enough time to sit and bug hunt, but from what I saw I am very impressed and mega excited for the official roll out. Here's to hoping chest opening actually makes it in ;)

This, set 3, gauntlet... Do we dare start a hype train again?

I swear, if you announce a dungeon, I am going to get all up on some hype train.

Truly Outstanding! I'm looking at the near 2000 chests I have, over half of which i rolled on, and am salivating!

Wowwee, I might be able to hit the ground running on EA-ing my dinosaur deck that has way too many rare+ cards to be worth it. :D

We have. Thank you.

Wow sprinkles for the ice creams I've already eaten. Seriously the generosity of HexEnt never fails to amaze. Great job on the quick solution, decision and communication. Not needed at all but gladly received to help with the EA task

Incindium
06-18-2015, 09:37 PM
Yeah with over 1100 rolled chests this along with the Charks business deal loot should get me a decent stash of stardust.

I'd also like to say a thanks not only for the retro dust, but also for putting stardust on chest spins in the first place. I think it's great

DataDragon loves his data!

Are you saying that you have data saved for every single role? Down to exactly what icons were spun? That's impressive.

Are you saying that you have data saved for every single role? Down to exactly what icons were spun? That's impressive.

The icons are irrelevant (WOF Theatre) and generated based on your loot table result - the results are what matters (and stored).

DataDragon knows everything! Every roll, every code redeemed, match logs, etc.

I imagine him spending his days rolling around in his giant shiny pile of bits, slaying would-be adventurers who try to take his data.

Oh... Well the theater is part of the fun. Can i still pretend that there is an actual slot machine game programmed into Hex?

Timlagor
06-19-2015, 07:38 AM
So time to start complaining that my stardust is going to be devalued by all this generosity! ;)

I take it it's also safe to keep merrily spinning those chests between now and this hitting the main server too?

We should start a gofundme for datadragon to get him a 50 monitor command center to sort and split data with.

This makes me so happy. What a wonderful feeling getting retroactively so much extra from all the millions of gold spent on chest spins. It would've been awful to have spun those chests after learning that I should've waited until this feature.

Thank you!

What spin result(s) rewards stardust?

whenever you get a gold symbol you get dust. the more gold symbols you get the better the dust

What spin result(s) rewards stardust?

Gold icons used to just give gold (and upgraded the base reward rarity), but now gold icons reward stardust too. 1 icon is 500g and a common stardust. 2 icons are 2500g and an uncommon stardust, and 3 gold are 5000g and a rare stardust. I believe the rarity of the 3-gold result can change depending on what you rolled.

Just a question but is it still counting chest spins we are doing all the way up to patch day on July 14th? If not, I better stop rolling chests.

I can't see why they wouldn't be. As far as I can tell, they plan to just check what you are owed sometime around the 14th (could be a little later to give them time to make sure nothing slipped by, but knowing DataDragon and his data-hoard, he should be able to get it out pretty damn fast.)

This is all my personal speculation though, so take it with a grain of salt, but it seems logical.

Parzival
06-28-2015, 04:48 PM
I asked DD and he confirmed your speculation Xen, he will pull the data just before Set3 so it's currently safe to spin chests.
