my first time using bandicam, or video editor, or youtube, so kinda rough.

 

but this is me achieving 100% off crafting boost, and milking it for all its worth

 

total savings in excess of 1,600,000 in fuel

 

premium boxes really made this all possible, cheers

So it is possible, thanks for confirming this, there has been so much speculation on whether this was even possible.

I would say that it was possible. As I can't see Con allowing this to stay, when he sees this. Way too powerful.

Con has been part of the upgrading discussion before, and was fully aware of 90%off crafting bonus when he proceeded to introduce "premium supply boxes" with their stack-able boosts.

i highly doubt this will come as a surprise to him, perhaps the magnitude of this upgrading will, but this is only possible because so very many people were willing to trust me with their precious unique items

 

technically, i had 110% off, and should have been refunded fuel for each upgrade :-)

eh not really TToTT boxes are now rare and expensive + premium keycards cost actual money and aren't even dropping at the moment.

 

Well, it's soon time for another Halloween event, which means more of those boxes. So, they might not be so rare anymore. Granted, they might be a lot different and even completely without any sort of boost bonuses, thank to premium boxes. But I'll give you Premium keys cost real money.

Wow, that's a little hard to believe that Con could have made this on purpose. Then again, it's quite possible that they didn't expect people to still have TToTT boxes left, at least not so many that those could have become an issue for them.

 

But considering the current Prem boxes and their boost and the incoming Halloween event, I would say that the new Halloween boxes wont have any boosts, definitely not craft/upgrade. At least this way, this kind of upgrading won't be possible anymore.

Its really unfortunate that it took so many ToTTs to find the Headless Handyman. That was terrible luck. Side note, need a couple fresh 107s upgraded...

this ruins game balance you know ... ok course, the dev team get some more dollars because who wouldn't want "free" crafting ? Specially after knowing how broken the regular crafting system is (absurd fuel prices at quality levels and incredibly poor bonuses). But providing a quick fix in that manner may backfire in the long run. leading to more PvP unbalance and lack of PvE challenge. A proper review in the crafting system would be much more effective.

I saw this being discussed in the chat when Con came on. Vyking asked Con if he had seen this video, and he said that he had.

 

Con to Vyk - "You're a maniac :p"

 

Obviously he is aware of the situation, and the there was no impression that he found it problematic.

 

Cheers to Vyking for the video - that's some epic crafting you did there! :)
