anyways, if yo've to criticize the update... don't blame bounty thing... you can play ranked game in both towns now... duds are basically for show off... and if you want to be materialistic, then yo've to buy...

Non-wranglers should be aloud to play bounties.

It is probbally part of all the bugs the game has had since the latest update, so don't worry about it.

Scrip is very easy to earn now.

While I sympathize, far from not being able to do anything about it, it seems to me you have a couple options. The first is to simply enjoy all the other features made available, including both towns and most of the big shots. Post-update, free accounts are almost as good in competitive play as pay accounts, and that to me seems like a huge upgrade. Second, you could pay for the game. Yes, there are many reasons why this can be difficult, but very few make it impossible. Don't have a credit card? There are other options, including mail order (I think), PayByCash, those lovely gift cards and, if you're in the US, you can probably just mail it over with a sticky note. Parents won't let you pay for the game? They probably will if you show them you can earn the money and $20 is very manageable with a little toil and sweat. Okay, you have a third option, which is to wait until players inevitably decide to offer stuff-for-aces, like Wranglers for the highest ace earners. Then you just have to figure out how to get all those aces. ^^

Basically, they've given non payers the ITP at the expense of 10 bounties. Personally I enjoyed the 10 bounties more.

I don't see how free accounts are equal with wranglers. If you don't have the best bigshot for the scenario, you are at a big disadvantage. I doubt people will want to play fg with me as I only have a codger. We didn't get any new units, so there wasn't really any change at how competitive non-wranglers are.

Gangs were very efficient at providing ITP passes. I used my gang's for months.

Leafsnail, I'm not totally sure, but I only noticed the removal of 5 bounties. You might be right.

I actually was doing bounties on the days before the update. Then I reread it and noticed that we would get extra scrip, so I waited until they updated BH to do the last game for Marge Queenie. Who knew that the would remove some bounties...

The difference is that you can now purchase the other big shots after having earned some scrip. Previously, there was no way you could have more than your starting big shot as non-paying player (since you didn't have access to gold).

I think the older players who have had exchange licence for free should still be made wrangler for free, i understand that they havent paid any money for gold, but they are some of your oldest players/customers, and alot of them are thinking of quiting now which would be a real shame to lose these players.

so please think twice about this decission, it would be a great shame to lose some of the best people in the games community.

I second that. I've been playing for a while, come on. Besides, there's really no chance I'll become a Wrangler as I already have everything I really need: a few looks, some Big Shot duds and many other duds, a familiar, my own gang, all Big Shots, plenty of cards and enough scrip for my needs, and plenty of Pardners. Not making people like me Wranglers won't result in anything besides our eventual and inevitable qutting.

When you completed the ones you're on, you used to go on to "Silver star" bounties, which I found very fun and challenging.
Bounties included Big John, La Desperada and Helmet von Helmut.

Wisefox, purchasing big shots is still wrangler, I believe.

Leafsnail, weren't those "Most Wanted" bounties?

I'll be back soon to check if those are right.

I was about to post that you were wrong, but I went to check on a non-Wrangler account and my tac buy option has a Wrangler icon.

Anyone else see this? Everyone except podgy Codgy and the Raveny one should be available, right? Am I seeing things???

Now that's interesting. I'd assumed that meant they'd have access to all big shots, but that it did not preclude non-Wranglers from buying big shots not listed in section 2 (i.e. Codger and Raven). I guess I was wrong and non-Wranglers really are totally crippled.

They've always been that way. It's kind of telling when the only ranks I have above tenderfoot are Gold Rush and Claim Jumping, and the only bigshot I have is Old Codger.

I'm aware of that, Flyer: one of my presently Wrangler accounts started as a non-gold account. I just meant that I (and some others) read the announcement incorrectly and assumed that the list of perks implied that non-Wranglers would be able to buy 4 out of 6 big shots. They would have then been capable of fielding optimal units for most boards in most scenarios. At this point, they're even more gimped than before as Poseidon suggested that new players will now all start with cav, making FG very difficult.

That's true, and sounds a bit unfair. Maybe it should be changed so that you get to choose your Big Shot at the start (I quite liked that element) and then when you get wrangler you get to choose a free ITP and FT Big Shot. I mean, I understand that freeplayers should only get 1 big shot, like always, but they should at least be able to choose. Tact is a perfectly logical swap out for the cav in terms of first big shot.

It looks like I even misread it worse than that: I thought it implied that Wranglers would get all big shots for free, while non-wranglers would have to purchase them.

I don't think they should abandon the idea to pay to play as a wrangler, they should just make it cheaper. 20.00$ is a bit much in my opinion.

I got only ITP gold left and no one works for free nowadays...
Mae, I bet Leafsnail reads your posts more than once.

 
I don't think they should abandon the idea to pay to play as a wrangler, they should just make it cheaper. 20.00$ is a bit much in my opinion.

I thought it's just for starters. Later on, I think we might have some new offers like... $8.95 for FT/ITP or somethin like that. Btw, what's the point of Scrip Packs if you can only buy 15 scrip worth cards and 500 scrip worth gunslingers with it? This game has become nothing special so far. Putting a price this high to play a game with 8 different scenarios and merely 30 different maps is outrageous to every begginer. B!H is basically a game made only for people who have played it for over 19 months or for those willing to pay! And it just isn't worth it (except for people who have everything they need, like me).
Five people (during the 20 minutes I spent in parlor today) with no ranks quit the game as soon as they found out how to get the Wrangler pass and what is available without it to purchase.
