  • 2017 - Moving Forward!

    Greetings Mercenaries!

    The Lost Saga team would like to thank and congratulate the entire community for enjoying another year of Lost Saga with Z8Games in 2016!

    While some changes are in the works to improve LSNA, we wanted to touch base with everyone and gather some feedback on several subjects.

    To help us better understand what changes or improvements you guys would like to see in 2017, we wanted to share some of our upcoming plans and get your feedback on them! Feel free to comment on our ideas or pitch some of your own, as we will be leaving this thread up for a little while as a point of reference and discussion.

    Without further adieu, here are some of our planned additions/changes for Lost Saga in the coming future:

    Upcoming 2017 Plans:

    - Client Update in Q1 2017 (Heroes, Modes, Maps, Styles, Motions, Gears)
    - Return of Lost Saga tournaments; thinking of hosting them bi-monthly, giving us more time to focus on planning, hyping, and rewarding our contestants. Plans for bigger and better rewards including participation rewards.
    - Higher frequency of popular events such as Bingo, Event Shop, Secret Shop, Star Chest, Plaza Attack events etc.
    - More user-friendly shop events such as Hero Trial events (receive newly released hero for free for a timed duration to experiment with), Hero + gear discount sales.
    - More forum events such as Gear Design Contests, Combo Contests, Hero Idea Contests with bigger and better rewards including participation rewards.
    - Frequent user feedback polls in regards to what heroes, gears, and items etc. you guys would like to see return to the game in the form of a sale or an event reward.
    - More content in between patches, ensuring there are no weeks without any new content such as gears, events etc.
    - More variety in events; we know many of you enjoy events you can repeatedly complete for rewards as opposed to once per day or once per week quests.
    - Better event rewards in general.
    - Major text update in the works.
    - More EXP/GP bonus events; we plan to make booster events more frequent, if not daily.
    - Better rewards for dungeons in the works. While we cannot promise the return of the Master Dungeon EXP rates, at the very least we will host constant events that reward users much more for completing master dungeons.
    - More to come!

    User Feedback - let us know your thoughts:

    - In general, what event rewards would you deem worthy enough to play for?
    - What upcoming hero(es) are you most excited for?
    - What kind of events would you like to see return or be introduced? Be it in-game or forum.
    - Do you prefer events you can spam regularly or daily/weekly/monthly events with more reward?

    - Any other feedback or questions you may have feel free to post below (as long as they are appropriate).

    We will sticky and reference this thread for the weeks to come to discuss and gain valuable feedback from you, our beloved community!

    A BIG thank you again to our loyal mercenaries who've stuck with us through the years and to all those new who are joining us for a new adventure! Don't be shy in this thread, we really value everyone's feedback!

    All of these upcoming plans sound great! I've only got two question for the time being. The first being will you guys still be working towards getting premium heroes released, both new and old? The second question I have is will anything be done to improve latency issues? Lately a lot of people who used to have fairly good connections now have poor connections.

      Short answer: absolutely. While there are some premium heroes that we know for a fact will not release in LSNA, we are still working to obtain others.

      Ideally I would like to release a list of premiums that are definitely NOT coming to our version, but we'll have to wait and see on that one.

        I think people really want medals boxes so maybe having those as rewards would be nice. Also maybe having more opportunities of getting certain unreleased gears in case users missed them.

            Honestly, if we bring back the old master mode with the exp and gp, that would be good. But. make the coin recharge rate like 30 minutes so there won't be a repeat of before with hardly any rooms to battle in. Also, raid mode, coins shouldn't drop on a chance, they should always drop, half the time its because someone lags or takes to long to load or whatever the case is. If the mode is fixed so they drop every run, people wouldn't have an issue in doing the raids. The rewards are ok, they could have better chances for the good stuff i.e basic medal box, medal gacha, perm gear chests, perm legendary chests, rare hero picker, dimensional shards, etc. As far as master mode, the rewards seem fair.
            We should get some better event rolling out for other modes. For example, I haven't seen any events for deathmatch personally. There could be one like... play deathmatch for 2 hours for 200 dimensonal shards, 4 hours for 2 perm gear chests, 3 gear enchant tools, 6 enchant cards I guess 50% or above seems ideal, and 2 gear sealers, or something like that, then play the mode for 10 hours for 500 clovers, a perm hero scroll or a rare hero picker or something like that, hell, possibly throw medal boxes in there. The past events seems fine, but the ones for what 100 or 200 dimensional shards seem too long and no one did unless they farmed mostly. I like the idea of bingo and everything else coming out, but I'd like to know what exactly can I get before hand before I consider spending money or anything. Like for an example, not related to bingo, but for raid mode, the hunter coins. I like the idea it brings up a shop with various prizes, however, I did see that unique box, and I've been told this and that on how oh its bugged, you get nothing. Personally, if I saved up 3,500 hunter coins and got nothing, I'd be pretty ****ed and upset. Also, if I sent in a ticket asking whats in there, I'm sure I would be told oh we don't know either, well if various things with random chances had a list or like how we can see whats in perm gear chests available to get, that would be a really great help. Also, event wise, these keys like silver machine keys, gold machine keys, silver and gold fire, snow, and forest keys, are just sitting here because there's no event to get chests or to get the keys either. I mean, doing masters is fine for random chances or saving essences, but we don't even have event to stack essences or to obtain them at a quicker rate so we can use these keys on our chests or collect medals.Also, if the servers could be improved, that would be great. So many fun lag sense gears, heroes, and skills, but you can barely use them :c. But, this is all just one user's input.

            Cheers to hopefully a bright new year. -Dura

              Will this new year mean an increase in GM to player interaction, whether it be battling in matches or player issues/tickets?

              Side note; will this also mean a potential increase in bug fixes that have plagued NALS for months? (Specifically the Chain Mage passive bug where you summon the orb in the middle of the battlefield).

                All of this new stuff is nice. But as someone who's played all three versions of the LSNA version of this game, the team's highest priority (in mine and most of the community's opinion, honestly) should REALLY be the servers. They've been ridiculously unstable since literally forever.

                    It's good to see you guys making a change.
                    One huge feedback I would give is to have gear chests updated with everything that in the game constantly, new gear comes out? add it instantly.
                    The amount of missing gears from gear chests is just getting out of control.
                    Here are some heroes missing every gear
                    energy researcher, Hades, park II pyo, Kim, general yi, jeon woo chi, forsaken, magic lancer, jumper

                    Other things missing
                    Blade weapon, chemist weapon, zeus trinket hat weapon, kung fu master trinket hat armor, Thunder bird hat, jack o lantern weapon, hakuman trinket armor hat, bruce lee trinket, dragon slayer trinket hat armor, don quixote armor hat trinket, chain magician weapon trinket, earthquake trinket helm weapon, matador trinket weapon, engineer weapon, gangrim (warpmage) weapon trinket, alice trinket hat armor.

                    I'm sure there are some gears I'm missing, and this does include legendary gears.

                        Gear Boosting Tool, Premium Gear Boost Tool, __% Upgrade Card(s), Soul Stone(s). Silver Monster Dungeon Treasure Chests.
                        An old event had us collect "Treasure Key Piece" and "Golden Key Piece" to redeem for Monster Dungeon keys. I still have the leftovers in my inventory, perhaps those could make a comeback?

                        Once upon a time, Lost Saga held an event in which for one whole week, any fishing items appraised from one's tackle box were increased in value if they were A-Rank or higher. The specific multiplier was hidden, but said to be different for A, S, SS, and SSS. And it was good.

                        This really depends on what's being asked and what's being offered to give a blanket statement. Most of the event quests in recent months have been along the lines of "Play X Mode for Y Hours to get Z Prize" Which is great when the game mode in question is NOT PRISONER but it still breaks the playerbase into two camps: those who abuse the meta to not just win but win as hard as they can, and those who insist on running out the game clock for as long as possible - indefinite if the mode/event allows for Sudden Death time. (Granted, this is generally how they behave even without events, but still)

                        Taking specific prizes out of the equation, the best format for event quests I've seen are the three-tiered type. A while back we collected Dragon Thingies for Map Pieces to assemble a Dragon Map with six unique slots. Using a Dragon Thingy got you a random Map Piece numbered from 1 to 6. Completing a map gave an insanely good (yet still randomly picked from a small prize pool) item, but the laws of probability kept things from getting out of hand. As for earning the pieces, you had three ways per day. The first two were infinitely repeatable - simply be logged in for X minutes or accrue X minutes in any battle mode. The third would be a once-daily battle-related objective. All the thrills and mechanics of the Bingo Event, while letting the Bingo Event retain its unique, once a year (or twice a year if you insist) appeal.
                        If all this Dragon stuff doesn't ring any bells, we also did it with cheesecakes. Yes, cheesecakes.

                          Very classy. In any case. They're doing great with content but are terrible in the fields of player response and being able to keep the server stable. You calling me vulgar names doesn't change that. They want feedback, give them feedback, but don't just sit there and kiss their toes. They're not gonna give you a free hero package.

                            Im happy stuffs getting better but with how bad the server is and you guys seem to think its fine. The bi-monthly tourney should open your eyes to how bad it is.
                            In-short do something about the server. Thanks.

                              We are taking all feedback very seriously - we understand that Lost Saga NA is in need of some serious changes across all spectrums and are prepared/planning to do exactly that.

                              As for the free hero package... well... Christmas IS coming and we do have gifts planned for everyone!
