    Hey guys, let me just show you an email I sent to Juicebox:

    And after two days, I received a reply. I'll post it here, but reading it is unnecessary since I'll explain in detail what the email said. It's a long one...

    Okay, now that that's all there, let me just summarize what Erik Nilsson said here:

    - Raffle tickets for 1500 gems. I assume hundreds will most likely participate, but at least it's not a one in a million chance?

    - Naema, Freydis, Gorg, and A'san are no longer legendaries... that sucks... but I guess it's neat that a legendary is incredibly rare now! I mean if you get one, that is.

    - Afghan soldiers and Somali Pirates will be added (with more to be announced, I guess). I assume they'll have mythical attributes since Honorbound is a fantasy game.

    - Mandatory log-ins are going to be put in order. If you don't log into Honorbound once every 48 hours you'll receive a strike. I assume after three strikes the game will terminate your account. It's to handle the hacker threat that Honorbound is facing.

    So yeah, sometime mid-April this will be in effect. What do you guys think? I'm a bit disappointed but that's just me.

    This is an April Fools joke

    I really hope this is some elaborate April fool's joke, because this would really kill the game for me. Otherwise when you asked about what direction the game is going, he should have just replied, "pay to win."

    I think the mandatory logins is the best way to get rid of hackers, honestly. I mean there are dozens that just create fake accounts and rank up without logging on or whatever. This eliminates those fake accounts.

    And I log-in every day so it won't affect me!

    Couch, while i encourage and support the spirit and creativity of an April fools day joke, you embellished a bit too much. Also if they did what you have proposed they would endure quite a few lawsuits.

    If that's really the case, then JB is moving in the wrong direction

    Damn... so the only way to get a "true" legendary after the next update will be spending your family fortune on random summonings... If this is real, of course...

    Force log-in is stupid. What if I go travelling in Africa for a week and there is no internet connection?

    if these things are true, and i hope theyre not, this would really kill the game for me. The only reason i liked the game was becoz you can actually be at par with guys that pay, you grind more than they have to but at least the gap isnt that big. so if you can only get legendaries thru card packs then i guess its time to find another game that doesnt feel like its "pay to win" game.

    Haha okay before people start getting upset at Juicebox, this was all an April Fool's joke! None of this is true and was all made up because I was bored :)

    Have a nice night and sleep well knowing your legendaries are safe and mandatory log-ins would never in a million years happen.

    Haha. The part about legendaries is completely believable. I can see that happening if the card packs are generating lots of profits. :)

    I hope this doesn't give juicebox any new ideas...

    If you look above the time and date of my first post, you can barely make out "this is an April Fool's joke" haha.

    If Juicebox adopted anyone of those ideas, you may personally lynch me for being solely responsible. I trust that they won't take anything more away from the player than they already have (which isn't much to begin with, anyway).

    This got to be a fking joke! this is not just "pay" to win, this is a fking "keeping paying us" to win otherswise go fk yourself! This is fucking crazy. If this this true, the only 5 star rating i'll give is the ability they suck money from their supporters! !

    This whole thread truly shows how most forum users reply to threads in general: Read first post, press "reply", start rant. No further reading or research done. Quite sad actually.

    The title of this post should be edited to avoid unnecessary rants.
