Dino Storm Celebrates 2 Million Player Mark With Redefined Combat
Dino Storm only recently celebrated reaching the 1 millionth player milestone but they’ve already reached 2 million and have announced an epic update to boot. This is the first update in a series of planned updates aimed at redefining the combat in the laser/dinosaur hybrid. The loot system has also received so much needed attention as the enemies monsters now drop far more loot and a bigger variation of items.
The experience points system has also undergone a drastic overhaul with brand new upgrades for accumulating experience points. Below are some comments from the developers in regards to the bigger aspects of this update.
Purchase Already Upgraded Dinosaurs and Weapons!
Users kept asking for it, Combat Redefined Part 1 delivers: Soon they will be able to purchase already upgraded dinosaurs and weapons as well as dinosaur implants and weapon tech! Note that the selection of items on offer depends on your level, just like upgrades do.
Do I have to upgrade all my dinos and weapons again?
The Dino Storm Team: No. We improved the overall balancing though, so you might notice small changes in perceived strength. A dinosaur upgraded before the update is just as powerful as a dinosaur that was upgraded after the update.
Do I need to learn how to do upgrades from scratch?
We don’t think so. The upgrade items change and the upgrade window gets a fresh new design, but it basically works like before. Upgrades are still started at the Dino Doctor and Weapon Expert in Dinoville.
Is it true that quests do not reward upgrade items anymore?
Yes. Quests instead reward you with more experience points for boosting your level, and also Gold Coins – both depending on your performance during the quest.
How can I get the new upgrade items then?
Items that can be used for upgrades now drop from defeated creatures and bandits. No need to guess who might have the desired item, just click the + button next to it in the upgrade window and choose “Where can I find this?” for directions.
What happens with all the old upgrade items I still own?
Evolution Serums, Gun Tuning Kits, Weapon Tech Upgrade Kits and Dino Implant Upgrade Kits will be removed from the game completely. You will automatically receive a refund in Dino Dollars for any of these items removed from your possessions.
What benefits do I get from DINO STORM PLUS, now that the old upgrade items get removed?
DINO STORM PLUS now grants you double Experience Points from any completed quest or group quest to speed up your leveling progress. Remember that your level is now key to unlocking upgrades, so DINO STORM PLUS still enables you to max out your items in next to no time!
Will there be changes to the achievements as well?
Yes. Since fashionable Fame Items are now dropped by enemy units, these will no longer be rewarded through achievements. Completing achievements will reward you with Fame instead.
So the dinosaurs stay exactly the way they were? No changes apart from balancing tweaks?
