Hi everyone! Just wanted to make an update about Bounty Spots (a.k.a. Bounty Targets before Wartune Patch 7.8). As you may know after the implementation of 7.8 the levels were reset from level 100 (previous maximum) to level 1. And since that day players are doing their Bounty Spots daily and working to recover their previous levels.
A note about massive lost rewards
As I have said several times in various locations the reset from level 100 to level 1 was a huge “theft” of rewards from players, but I do not think this was done as an evil action – I think it happened out of ignorance = their poor knowledge of the game. I do think there should have been a substantial compensation for this which did not occur, but OK, it is what it is.
Recovering Bounty Spot Levels
So now all Wartune players are working to recover their levels and on the below collage I show my current Bounty Spots which have reached already level 18 to level 21. Still a long way to go to get back to level 100 but I am happy they are indeed going up (and I do hope level 100 will be achievable). Who knows, maybe there will be a surprise if we find out the maximum was raised from level 100 to level 200, but I doubt it 🙂
New unfavorable condition / rule
Also in Patch 7.8 it seems a new rule was added to the Bounty Spots / Bounty Targets whereby if you do not clear them out then their level goes down.
This is not really a problem for active players but this is very damaging to casual or less active players.
I can understand why this rule was added, i.e. to promote daily playing, but there are many other ways to do that rather than damaging casual Wartune players. I personally like Wartune to be a welcoming game for both types of players. Older players may remember there even used to be a recovery system in the past in Wartune where players who could not play a lot could recover some percentage of rewards from missed events. I thought that was very nice, but because it had bugs they scrapped the whole thing choosing not to invest money to fix it.
However some players wrongly made false statements! The level does not drop to zero! So for example if you reach level 20 and don’t do it next day it’s supposed to drop only 1 level or maximum few levels, which is not the end of the world.
Furthermore, the level drops are decided per location so for example if you have done some of them and forgot to do 3 Bounty Spots then the drop normally should happen only on those 3.
Good: levels are recovering
Bad: taking a long time
Bad: levels drop a bit if you miss some day
Good: it is fast to do them if you login 1 time in the day (note: Exploration is not required, if you are in a hurry you can quickly clear the Bounty Spots alone – Exploration simply adds more rewards – see my REFERENCE article on Exploration Rewards).
Possible Dream: that maximum level was increased to level 200 instead of level 100 🙂
I hope you liked my article. If you have additional information please post in the comments or email to me. If you find any mistakes in my content please politely inform me I will be happy to make a correction.
How is your recovery going? Are your Bounty Spot Levels similar to mine or you managed to get a higher level?
What is your opinion about Bounty Spots in Wartune – is it a nice / fair feature?
Do you manage to do them all every day or you sometimes miss if you cannot login to Wartune?
