"a change of some kind is pretty much a bet the farm guarantee for Page Four. It’s either no AE XP post-50 or no more Empyrean/Merit conversions, take your pick."

 

We've read the threads and there are lots of opinions. So, let's get some votes going to see which way things are leaning.

You left out the well-nigh inevitable call for AE to either be removed or not to have rewards at all...

 

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say "that is not applicable" in order to choose between these two. AE isn't going anywhere. 😉

Since when has the reality of the situation had anything to do with the pearl-clutching? 😝

I think a per-20-hour limited rate of conversion of Empyrean Merits to Reward Merits would be the best solution.  Keeps post-50 XP for Veteran Levels and allows limited conversion of Empyrean Merits to give flexibility to players who want to convert them.

Now, now.  I don’t want Mission Architect removed.  I just want INF in AE missions reduced to 50% to match the current XP reduction, go back to tickets only, and prevent XP boosters from working while inside an AE mission.  Then it would be perfect.

Some have suggested a 8-10 hour period off the Reward Merits thread but that got lost due to all the back and forth.

I wish the "developers" here had the balls to do this.  I'd laugh my ass off watching the four or five people left crying that they can't fill a team and wondering where everyone went.  That'd be epic.

That's a bold assumption that so many people would leave at the AE being nuked in such a fashion.

Let's try it and find out.  Seems like this is what the inner circle wants, so go ahead and do it.  You all are going to live with the consequences, right?

I feel like the empyrean to reward conversion option will hurt a lot more than just AE farmers... people that run a lot of Itrials will also get punished hard... I'm not sure why that would be a good thing...

What are we supposed to do with empyreans we earn through itrials once our toons are fully T4? buy ultimates (after converting empyreans to threads) at Luna and flood the AH? that just feels so bad/wrong/sad/boring

 

then at least allow us to buy purple/AT/winter IO with empyreans, not just reward merits...

I am not sure that would work.  You will get people here saying that farmers will just flip those on the market and earn billions, which is somehow going to miraculously destabilize the economy.

Polls on here are easily skewed by people using alt accounts.  This does not really tell anyone anything other than what a handful of people want.

Polls are bad.

Polls are most definitely imperfect. Merely a way to summarize opinions which vary in veracity.

All trials had a reward merit reward added, with the number of merits being equivalent to the former conversion. This is on the patch notes.

Click on the vote total and that tells you exactly what accounts voted for which option.

I think those results are hidden for this particular poll.

That may work for you, but that doesn't work for me.  Clicking on totals does nothing.

This one has viewing disabled. No seeing who voted for what. This is a safe place.
