Lonami.2987 Posted October 2, 2019 Share Posted October 2, 2019 So, many multi-build users bought bag slots as an investment to store their equipment, due to how ArcDPS worked. Now they feel like they have to pay again to use equipment templates efficiently.Easiest solution: Give them free equipment templates.For example: If you character has two paid bag slots, you would get two additional equipment templates, for that specific character, for free. Easy as that.Each character has a cap of 5 Bag Slot Expansions, and you will be able buy up to 4 additional equipment templates slots, so that should cover it quite nicely. Equipment slots cover 19 inventory slots, and basic bags are 18-20 slots, so the numbers match.This approach would compensate those who really invested into bag slots across multiple characters, and prove ArenaNet isn't pushing some sort of "veteran tax" conspiracy. It's a fair compensation for the previously useful but now useless investment, and a good compromise to stop the general doomsaying and the potential collapse of what remains of the raiding community.It's not the first time ArenaNet "compensates" previous payers with additional stuff. Owners of both GW2 vanilla and HoT got some freebies once those two went free. The precedent is there.Additionally, equipment templates could be permanently bundled with bag slot expansions. Future updates would expand the maximum number of bag slots / equipment templates slots, attracting veterans for more template slots. Players who don't care about builds but like bag slots might feel encouraged to try new stuff, since they already got extra equipment slots anyway. This move would encourage build diversity, and create a better gameplay experience for everyone.I don't know, sometimes simple solutions are the best way to handle problems. Yeah, it's not perfect, but it's a good start, free from the bad first impression of these last days. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
