In Discussion Remove 'GWEN's Treasure Chest' from GUI

Discussion in 'General Idea Discussion' started by Xukuri, Sep 13, 2019 at 8:37 AM.

  1. You can still buy Gwen chests in the treasure chest menu in the lobby, despite the game having been removed. This should be removed to stop people accidentally buying chests for things they can't use. New players might not know that it no longer exists and could waste their shards buying them.

  3. I agree with this. I'm pretty sure it's been brought up before and it got a lot of attention and was liked by many. I'm 100% sure this isn't a bug and they just left it in the chest GUI fot some odd reason. Since HoG isn't a game anymore, I completely support the removal of GWEN chests.

    +1 from me

  4. I have made around 2 threads on this and seen about 10 others. Unfortunately, the production team's answer is that they will be kept here on the server for unspecified reasons. I myself couldn't agree more with this but it looks like they will be staying here on the server for a long time.

  5. I don't think it's necessary to remove GWEN treasure chest from the server. Maybe the production team wants to keep it anyways. Who knows that players may use this chest to find some legendary stuff there. I'd never opened a GWEN chest for a while, and I may need to open it sometimes. I'm not sure if the production team will be happy about removing the GWEN chest from the server?

    I don't think it's a bug because I can be able to access to GWEN chest and it's purchasable. Players can still be able to buy the chests too.

  6. I believe that the reasoning for keeping it, was because Heroes of GWEN is still in the MPS. Thus, anyone who is an avid collector of these cosmetics would be able to purchase and use them in their MPS. Although, personally, I don't entirely think it's necessary to have them continued. Considering Heroes of GWEN isn't being worked on, and was already removed, having chests for it can be misleading for newer players. The last thing we want is a newer player to attempt to purchase a chest and end up getting the GWEN one, as they thought it was for something different. I'm all for removing it, but it's up to production/marketing at the end of the day.

    As Phamtastic said, this isn't a bug. The chest being there is completely intentional. If they were to remove it, it would be for other reasons; rather than for a bug. :)

  7. Even if the game is still accessible in MPS or if there is a comeback planned for it, I don't think the replies from staff members here illustrate this in a good way. If the game is not playable, keeping GWEN's treasure chests can only cause problems, and here's one particular example: https://www.mineplex.com/threads/i-made-a-mistake-and-i-am-fuming.69887/

    It also just takes up unnecessary space, and if it's not going to be removed completely, then at least hide it from the GUI.

  8. I wouldn't mind seeing GWEN's Treasures being removed from the GUI. Because Heroes of GWEN cosmetics have no use on the server, it makes sense to remove the chest. However, I believe players should receive some sort of notification to open these chests before they get removed so that players who still have GWEN treasures left can claim the rewards as soon as possible. This would be necessary to satisfy players who still have these chests and to everyone who would like to see it erased. Overall, I don't really see the need to keep GWEN's Treasure in the chest GUI and would like to see a warning if it is planned to be removed.

  9. You can still see holiday-specific chests on the second page of the GUI. You can open them if you have them, but there's no way to purchase them outside of their required holiday. GWEN chests could be like this as well, which would solve both problems easily.

  10. I've considered that option as well but while it may be an effective solution, I believe the second page of the GUI is strictly reserved for holidays. However, it wouldn't be a big deal if an exception were to be made; as you mentioned, it would be much better suited in the second page rather than the first.

  11. Let me tell you a story.
    One day I was feeling pretty good about myself because I just made 20000 shards. I went to a lobby and was going to buy myself a nice Illuminated chest, but for some reason I wasn't paying attention and I just bought "the blue chest". I go over to open the chest and lo and behold, I get a HoG cosmetic. A sad time in life, but it was pretty much my fault.
    This nice little story brings me to my point. I think removing that chest would be a good thing, but not necessarily necesary. You see, I think the GUI can have a little subsection for game cosmetics chests, or there can be a warning on the HoG chest to prevent mistakes in purchaces.

  12. It doesn't necessarily have to go on the second page. Omega chests are on the first page and they are unpurchasable as well. I just meant that this could be applied to the GWEN chests as well.

  13. Perhaps making it so players cannot purchase these chests accidentally, but I don't see why we'd remove it permanently. Some players may still have those chests and we'd just be removing their chances of opening them. And plus, like mentioned above, HoG is still in MPS. So technically the cosmetics still could be used? But if we made it so it's no longer purchasable at some point, that would prevent players from accidentally buying it. Or at the very least change the location so it's not mistaken for a different chest.

  14. The only real point of them is to get the lobby morphs, the game cosmetics rather useless
    Posted Sep 16, 2019 at 8:21 PM
  15. Thank you so much for telling me , i was going to save up not for 1 gwen treasure , not for even 4 gwen treasures but for only 3. I wanted to know what is the difference between it and the illuminated chest, is the loot different?
    Posted Sep 19, 2019 at 4:09 PM
  16. I think that the chest should stay in the store for the morphs and for if the game ever comes back in the future. But maybe it wouldn't hurt to place a disclaimer before you buy it reminding people that the game doesn't exist at this time and that all cosmetics are useless unless the game returns.
