    Don't know what the missile is made of, but once the next patch hits, VP will no longer activate for PvP (hood) fights.

    If you mean “will players build it knowing it won’t be PvP?”, yes. They already have

    That was announced weeks ago. Your PC is really slow. Now I know why you have these performance problems.

    When it says x5, is each chance used per fight you engage in or is it only used when the effect takes place?

    Rather strange question then. Not likely you will own this one, so why ask. If you really want to know, look it up.

    If players already know, then why did a forum moderator hide my screenshot behind a "Spoiler" button?

    Clue: Spoilers reveal information about the game that players do not know yet.

    Spoiler tags in this context on a forum don’t always mean it’s a spoiler. It often means image so older devices don’t crash when trying to view the page. I take you want people to be able to load the page so they reply?

    And I never said the US was told about it, I didn’t check US to know whether it was mentioned ingame or in forum or not at all. I said would players that know still build it, and the answer is yes as those that did know have built it


    Edit: or what Steph said below

    I hid it behind a Spoiler button because it is from the Beta Forum. Information from the Beta server or Beta forum should be in the Beta Spoiler section of the Forum or hidden behind a Spoiler button.

    message from The Envoy on May 17 2019 kinda summed that up

    but its a shame that the beta did bleed over a GB thats gonna get pvp nerfed after being brought onto the live servers guess its good to research the feedback sections before jumping on the Gb frenzy


    i have no idea how to hide the link as a spoiler so help me out mr longshanks :)

    correct someones post makes your job monotonous
    teach someone how to post makes your job slighty easier

    When you make a post, highlight what you want hidden behind the spoiler button, then click the button on the toolbar at top of message box that looks like a plus sign within a circle. Then click on Spoiler.

    Kudos to the scared hoodies that convinced the developers to nerf Virgo.
    Now it's really useless

    Given that a LOT of players put a LOT of effort, time, cash,into building massive defenses, it;s hardly surprising that INNO did not want those players' efforts put to naught.

    Can you imagine the reaction of the massive defense builders otherwise? I suspect that is one dookystorm INNO was pretty smart to avoid.

    I don't get what the big deal is. Would having this ability for only 3-5 PvP battles really make a difference? I mean, the effect of this GB is impressive, but it is also so limited in daily uses that it hardly seems worthwhile to fret about where you can use it. Especially since so many players claim PvP isn't worth their time to begin with. Tell me what I'm missing here. Assuming you get this to level 80 and get 5 chances a day at a little over 69% success rate, what would your best case scenario benefit be from PvP? Keep in mind that it has taken 243,563 FP to level it that far. Even if you were able to plunder 5 Maharaja's Palaces a day because of it (which is highly unlikely), how long would it take for 25 FP and 25 goods a day to justify that effort? Even without the nerf, this is a luxury item GB at best.
