Hey there,

I wanted to take this time to make you aware of a change to the removal of Bounty Update update that will be launching next Monday

Initially we were going to allow Ironmen the option to purchase any of the Obliteration, Decimation and Annihilation weapons from Mandrith with the bounty hunter points they had accumulated prior to the update.

However, since we made our intentions for that clear you've come back to us and mentioned that this wasn't a good change for the health of the Ironman mode.

In-depth discussions have taken place since then, and as a result we're going to be making the following changes:

- Firstly, we're going to be hotfixing a change to the Emblems to stop them being obtainable as well as upgradable, this change will last until Monday's game update.

- Secondly, Ironmen from Monday's update will have their "slayer bounty" points (bounty hunter points) reset to 0, this will still allow them to work towards the T87 weapons but they'll to have to start from scratch, additionally for Ironmen all emblems will be cleared from this update, this is make sure points can't be stored from Monday's update

We've made these changes to prevent Ironman players from obtaining the T87 weapons so easily, even more so given they could have pre-boosted before the main update.

As always, thank you for your feedback!

They CAN obtain it. They simply cannot boost points beforehand to get them. Wait until after the update :)

We value Jmod posts as law, you can imagine our outrage when you go back on your word. Rest in peace my 16 hour t10 emblem that I claimed already. Hello Ancient warrior upgrade patches, rune pouches and adrenaline crystals.

If they never mentioned it, ironmen would go with the the assumption it could still not be obtained until mentioned on the update day, which they would then do the content as the jmods wanted them to. Instead we're penalised for trying to think ahead. very smart.

I think Salamander is referring to Shauny's tweet yesterday: "For you Ironmen (btw), from Monday's update with the removal of Bounty Hunter you'll be able to use your bounty points stockpilled up to purchase those T87's if you so wish!"

For the record I'm in favor of wiping points & emblems for ironmen but it's annoying for sure that Shauny tweeted this yesterday and now is going back on it.

This change should apply to all player not just ironman.


Mains can just trade in their points now and buy t87s anyway. IM points wipe is specifically to avoid us from stocking up on points now and then buying them on Monday (since we can get t87s from wildy slayer), which would've allowed for really easy t87s on IM.
