View Full Version : How have explosives changed with the latest patch?

03-26-2012, 04:32 AM
I earn quite a lot per hour and buy a lot of explosives. I read something vague about the patch changing explosives, so I haven't upgraded yet.

Have the prices changed?

Have they made them easier to be destroyed again?

Past couple days I've been losing attack bombs more easily, and more defense bombs per incident. Did something change?

The prices haven't changed in 2.2.1 (non-HD version)...BUT it seems to me that maybe they are getting chewed faster?! But that is just a feeling...I have no hard facts to back it up, however I'd like to know for sure also. Could someone @ Funzio please make a definitive statement on this? Thanks.

It seems like I burn through more attack explosives when winning than I ever have.

Seems about the same for me. Maybe losing a bit more when winning fights. But as others said nothing definitive. I doubt anyone can get anything concrete on the matter.

I'm having good use out of my explosives (consumable) don't own any none consumables yet.

The highest attack ones I have are the anthrax & defense ones are land mines but mainly in defending I mostly consume stun grenades, only ever lost 1 land mine and that was to a successful defense.

Conclusion: No visible change.

Yea I'm loosing almost 5 stuns a day to people trying to rob me...its starting to get annoying...

Well when my game updated for the contraband event, I received a message saying that explosives now lasted longer. I did just delete and reinstall the app, so maybe something weird happened?

I lost 38 land mines in a matter of 10 min...last longer....nope

5.7 mil to replace...won't be doing that anytime soon.

I'm sure my stuns are going faster. I lost 22 in one series of attacks from the same player.

They are being lost over double the previous rate. I put in a support ticket a couple days ago and they said they were working on it...

Haven't stocked up myself yet but do wonder if the consume rate is higher for cheaper ones since I have noticed when attacking people.

May have names wrong so put stats as well
Time bombs 2:2 every attack the defender seems to use 2-4 with an avarage of 30 over 10 attacks
Stun grenades 0:6 seem to use one every 2-3 attacks

Never seen any higher level explosive used, I am tossing up spending 162.5M buying 500 of the 30:0 attack ones but am worried it will be a waste if they are consumed quickly

I have also noticed my explosives getting consumed faster.
