Please... Please... Please make the new gem cap to a multiple of 299,999. This would save so many people time, while still awarding us for the effort we put into making perfect gems by allowing us to still use them.

Or at least make an option to add orbs to a gem to increase their rating 1:1 ratio.... That way people could make their 299,996 a perfect gem by paying 3 orbs.... And I don't think it could be exploitable since I don't really see people paying 2500 orbs for a 2500 gem increase, even less for 10k+ :P hope that if they raise the cap, don't mess people that have 299,999 and 899,997 gems.

I honestly think the gem cap must be divisible by 5 and 0,so it's not pain in the butt for people try to make perfect gems...
Maybe 500,000 is max and you can't put gems in the totem 500,001+.
It will just be perfect.

I disagree. I think that some players have shown that creating these gems isn't the impossible task many thought it was. I think that if it's something you don't want to do, settle for 299,995. The 4 point difference is little reward for the difference in effort. But when the game gets bigger and bigger it'll separate the average from the elite.

The first person to disagree came into mind, surprisingly.
I know you have alot of perfect gema and you will get mad if it happened but people in this game are wise enough not to ritual a gem ends with 1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9. Which makes it impossible for me.
I saw you say in the forums you get these rare gems from people that have 10k+ gems, I stole like over 10 10k gems and no good results.

Ive actually suggested the exact idea :) my example was if they raise the cap to 899,999 Then we lose 2 points per gem by default after all that work. So i suggested allowing us to toss two orbs into it and give us a point an orb.

On the other hand.. if they don't allow this the next logical cap is 2,999,999 allowing max gem to be 8,999,997.. and only 1 user can make use of that right now.

It's possible, my trick is attacking near end up kings league or right after. Or even during the day of the last day of kings league. They're not easy to find but I can normally find 3 or 4 odd ending gems using this technique. Sometimes they add to 9 and sometimes they don't. I just sell 'em and try again.

i think if they raise the cap they will make over-combining possible, so you can combine 300k+ gems to create a max 1M gem, for example. just an idea :P

Everyone's talking about raising the limit, but I am just hoping I will be able to reach the current limit at all :P

Perfect gems don't need to be that hard to get.

What if at the end of a ritual you could DECREASE the value of the gem to anything below the normal value?

Combining...

New 300,000 gem!

-1

299,999 gem now fits in the totem!

Once you exit though, you can no longer change the gem value.

I almost had a perfect gem.

300,004

I feel that if they want to be fair, they should not change the cap... Unless the cap in totems is 899997. Which is too much. So they should keep the cap.

So you see, people like Muscat, they have spent so much money on the game. If you CHANGE the cap to something like 500k for example, then all those "pros" who have ex-perfect gems would have them wasted. Because the max is now 1.5 mil. So, if you "did not know the cap" then its your fault. So just because of one person then Zeptolab has to make the others that have perfect gems angry? So quit whining. Be fair.

 

So I don't agree.

Why not give the players that took the time to get 899997 gems 900000 gems and make the new cap 1,000,000 or something

I can see from your signature now that no one raided you. How do you have the confidence to put all those massive gems in the same totem ritual. How do you stop them stealing your gem?

I'm still of the opinion to just remove any limit. "Perfect gem" is a term invented by players, their choice. Prolonging the problem is not the answer.

It is a perfect gem because it is the highest possible gem to be made in the game. We are forced to make a 899,997 gem if we want to get the most out of our limited inventory. I'm sorry you don't have the patience to do the same, but no need to act like it is our fault for making a perfect gem instead of having an inventory full of 299,999 gems.

If the new gem cap is redefined, there should be extra rules when fusing gems. Rituals should only be skippable with orbs which fuses gems less than 300K each, and unskippable otherwise. We should never let players quickly top the leaderboards. If all rituals were skippable, the player quickly tops among the global leaderboards. If the value gets too big, we use short numbers. For example, A 2000000 value gem converts to a 2.000M gem, and 6 500 000 000 converts to 6.500B.
