[BS-SEA][BS:R][INFO] BlackShot : REVOLUTION FAQ
BlackShot: Revolution is easily the biggest overhaul the game has seen in a while and we want to make sure you have all the important facts going forward. Here are answers to your Frequently Asked Questions:
-How will the Clan System carry over to Revolution?
Your Clan, including its name, list and mark will carry over into Revolution just fine. Based on your feedback, the team is incorporating even more Clan War elements into Competitive Mode as well as improving Clan recordkeeping so that more of your Clan-related gameplay is recorded in the game. Once Revolution launches, this will be our team’s top priority, so rest easy!
-Are you really resetting my rank to 1?
After much feedback from the community, the team is working on a solution in which your BlackShot rank can be converted into Revolution. In other words, instead of starting at Level 1 in Revolution, you will start at a level that matches your current BlackShot rank. We’ll update you on this once a solution is finalized.
Additionally, the team is exploring the idea of turning your current BlackShot rank into a customization item exclusive to you, such as your rank insignia as a wearable item.
-What do Gold and Gems do?
Gold is used to purchase all Shop Weapons and Gear, and perform other in-game functions. Gems are used to purchase character customization items and Goldbox. Character customization items and Goldbox do not give you any major gameplay advantage; they are primarily cosmetic in nature.
-What will happen to my BC and BC guns?
Your BC and BC guns will be converted to gems if you have the following criteria:
- BC items purchased during Papaya Play & Playone Asia
- BC items received during Papaya Play
However after August 8th GEMS should have been converted by now.
For those whom have received items during Playone will be delayed due to cases of fraud in acquiring the BC items. Due to this illegitimate purchase of BC weapons the crediting during that time period has been delayed for items that you received during events etc during Playone Asia.
Goldbox items however will be credited after 12 September 2018.
Keep in mind that although prices of items in BlackShot: Revolution are not the same as BlackShot 1.0, it will be more viable to save up on Gold for bigger purchases by using the default weapons. This is because all weapons in Revolution are balanced, including the default weapons, so you won’t be at a significant disadvantage by using default weapons.
-What will happen to my permanent weapons?
Your permanent weapons will be properly converted to Gems. We understand that you paid a lot of money for them, which is why the Gem conversion for permanent weapons will be very good. Keep in mind that *all* weapons in BlackShot Revolution will now be permanent and instead be subject to degradation. As weapons are used in battle, they will gradually degrade and must be kept in condition using Gold. Weapon degradation does not affect performance.
-And what about my Mastery, K/D Ratio and other records?
These records will be ported over to our online Hall of Fame, which is a section of the upcoming BlackShot Revolution website. It will remain there forever for anyone to see.
-How will weapons be rebalanced?
Weapons have been rebalanced to reduce overpowered stats; this includes BC and Goldbox Weapons. Revolution weapons will be categorized by performance into one of several playstyles, such as Balanced, Rapid Fire, and Damage.
For example, the M4A1 Elite will be rebalanced for a Rapid Fire playstyle, while the AK-47 Tiger will be rebalanced for a Damage playstyle.
These new playstyles will give you a much clearer idea of which weapons to go for based on the kind of mercenary you are.
-What about Premium Characters like Nina and Raine?
Premium Characters will be no more in Revolution. Instead, they will be changed into customization items for the four primary characters (Adam, Travis, Cathy, Vanessa). For example, you could use Gems to acquire Raine items (shirt, pants, etc) and use them to customize Vanessa to look like her.
BlackShot: Revolution is coming on July 25. If you have other burning questions about it, feel free to ask our GMs on Discord or in the Facebook Private Messages
