  • GK Daily decrease %

    I noticed that after the game 'reset' i am losing 5% in my current GK level !!
    Before i was losing 2% !!
    Is that something new?! I mean if everyday i am losing 5% how the hell i am going to level up ?!
    Good rewards from daily quests are not enough !!


    PS: I have already lost 30% from the update , but i know that you are working on that.

    Yup just noticed I lost 6% at gk level 9. Had 86% before update. Then yesterday 50%. Now 44%.

    Great. Too much money hungry now.

      People see what they want to see... Before the update you didn't know when would you delevel, it could be at 65%, it could be at 60%, maybe 55% or 50%. Before the update GK decay on level 9 was around 3% daily, and after the update, since everything is fixed, you can go to sleep knowing that you will loose a level only after going below 0% and not 50% or more, therefore since the gap is double, decay is also double, you were loosing 3%, now you loose 6%, but it takes the EXACT SAME TIME to lose a level after and before the update, since it was just a VISUAL fix, I don't really get how people don't realize that since it's pretty darn obvious.

      Long story short, nothing was changed with the decay rate of GK, it was a pure visual fix, it now DISPLAYS what should display, but if you make the math it's exactly the same as before.

        I don't see a notification about that anywhere.
        If kabam wants to do things just to take our money without a clear explanation , well the only thing they will take is .. people leaving their game.
        Furthermore it is not the double decay rate , first i was losing 2% now i am losing 5% . So i guess it is just a bug like the huge % decrease from 80% to 50%.
        And even if it is not a bug , it is a LOT % DECAY to deal with !

          Bug fixes don't need to be specified, and the update notes do say that there were bug fixes.

          Now, regarding your case, I'll take a wild guess and say that your GK level is 8. At GK8 you drop levels to GK7 at around 60%, that makes it your real 0%, and your 100% is unaffected, there's only 40 percentage points playing as 100 percentage points, 100% / 40% = 2.5, that means 100 is downscaled 2.5 times. So in that context, if real 0% is visual 60% and 100% is unaffected, what would visual 80% represent? Exactly, real 50%.

          Well now what about the decay rate? It's the same, it was visually downscaled 2.5x times compared to the real scale, so what would 2% be in the real scale? 2% x 2.5 = 5%, there you go, your 5% decay rate, same as before.

          Note: The fact that NOW you realize the decay rate is huge and unfair doesn't mean the update caused it, it was already there, but now you can notice it.

            Go do your math somewhere else Gambit.
            I want a mod or gm to clarify whats going on. Not a know it all person who thinks GK level drop bug is minor issue when compared to match making or what not...
            Oh btw sp4z already made a thread claiming its a bug...

              No my GK Level is 6 , and i continue to think that the amount of xp% is a lot everytime game-day resets...and also you should stop making people confused.

                Now you can all go and see Sp4z official response when he's saying exactly what I've been saying, Confusing people? don't make me laugh, if you're confused with such basic math I think something is wrong.

                  Assuming te decay rate is the same and that indeed the GK8 to GK7 drop was at 60%, your math is correct and makes sense.
                  Not confusing at all. In fact, it's the opposite. Thanks for being the first one to present a possible (and plausible) explanation to this issue.

                    The "GK drop" was not a drop. The yellow bar in-game was displaying an inaccurate representation of the numbers on the back-end. The Game Team fixed the math on the back-end so the players can see what the GK level is more accurately.

                    The numbers you had never changed. What you saw changed. The bar was displaying incorrect info, now it displays the right info (the info you always had).

                    I understand that it looks like a massive drop, but the numbers you had are now displayed to you so you know exactly where your GK level is.

                      Sp4zrocker Think you misread the question in this tread .... Its not abort the Big drop due to the Update, BUT the Daily decrease in GK

                      Before the Update you lost 1.5% at GK7, after the drop its over 3% .... This has nothing to do with the new calculation, but a kabam implemented increase in Daily decrease

                      We would like to know why we are worse of now (after the update) ????

                        Oh my god, of course it has to do with the calculation!!! If the Progress bar was displayed incorrectly, the decay rate was as well, how hard is to realize that??? I don't know why but on my server almost everyone noticed the change and considered a positive one once they realized it was just a visual fix, and actually, with the Pies and Fruit Baskets, I am now able to maintain my GK level without spending a dime (Lost around 8% since the update but regained it with Pies from the daily quests)

                          GK daily decrease did not change. The only thing that changed was the GK Level display. All the other numbers are the same as before the update.

                            Please tell me how 2% drop daily before and 6% drop daily now adds up together...

                              A small rant

                              Sp4,
                              I must say that whether the GK decrease is 3% or 6%, whether it was displayed one way then and now is being displayed another, could I ask you if you could get us an explanation on why there is such a decay in the first place?
                              I think it is just a deplorable idea.
                              I can understand a VIP system and can understand wanting to reward players or giving incentive for them to play more or consider spending, but why put players in a no-win situation?
                              I believe that all players should be able to reach and maintain the highest levels of GK by sheer effort and persistence. And if more is required then it should be reasonable. But that is not the case.
                              For example I put up 5600 gems and noticed that my GK progress went by 20%. How fair is it that this progress will be gone in less than a week? I can understand a small decay that players can make up for with a few hours of playing, but how are players supposed to maintain something so outrageous? Does kabam expect for players to put up 7000 gems a week or something?
                              And for what really? A few perks here and there? It truly reflects poorly on kabam imo.
                              The monthly maintainence for this system should be a modest 350 to no more than 700 gems a month. Ugh.
                              I mean i know that this is just the way it is and in the end its the players choice on whether they want to get involved with gems so I don't care enough to complain. I am quite content outside of this app. I just want to give some feedback.
                              And i know that I'm not alone. I know that everyone hates the decay concept. At least the way that it currently is.
                              I would just ask if you could relay these feelings to the devs or whoever.
                              I know they probably won't care. I don't expect any changes.
                              I just want them to know how players feel for whatever it is worth.
                              Thanks for taking the time to read this and for fwding our sentiments.
