Thanks for the response and the timeframe - I’m happy to wait and hope that something/anything can be done
I will try and answer your questions as best I can
Did you do this on mobile or PC?
Did you use the Upgrade now button? “^”
It was a Green “Upgrade” button the the right hand side of the screen
So basically it seems there are two options to upgrade to Maximum being presented
On the left, by clicking on the level you want to upgrade to (default set to maximum), there will be a second screen that says Upgrade or Cancel
BUT if you click the green Upgrade button option on the right of the screen, then its done immediately with no confirm
I wonder if this is helpful for new players with lower level items they want to upgrade regularly?
But for higher level upgrades the resource requirements are so significant that I don’t think I have ever wondered if I could do it faster AFTER I have finally gathered the required resources
Was this an accidental click on an equipped item or an item that wasn’t equipped?
Item was equipped
The upgrade screen only opens if you click on the green “^” button on your equipped Gear, if you click on the main Gear type button next to the ^ then it will open up the list for all the items you own of that type instead.
This allows players to skip an extra 2 clicks if they’re sure they want to upgrade.
OK - I seriously did not know this, perhaps because on Mobile the item box and the green arrow are so close together. Helpful to know, I guess, but I don’t value the feature (it seems more of a trap, which I had been successfully avoiding until now…
Do you really mean you don’t like this shortcut feature altogether or would it be a nice feature to have, as long as there’s another confirmation window?
I think it requires a confirmation window at a minimum - however I question the need to have this type of feature at all, given how easy it already is to upgrade to maximum with an inbuild confirm button (see screenshot above)
I’d always kind of seen it as a trap for spending all your resources - I think for the amount of UI real estate it gets and how often it would get used (and the fact it literally sits next to the same option) it is not “valuable”
Or for example, did you click the upgrade button quickly thinking it was going to be the cancel button on the right hand side, so you could go back to your item list?
Nope, total mis-click - Had never pressed it before, but I guess I would have expected a confirm button (I never intended to click it - I mean both now but also ever, it’s just not adding functionality that I think is needed)
Do you have any other more specific feedback about the buttons, UI layout for upgrading or salvaging items in the Gear menu?
So ie. not just I want a confirmation window
but for example: I want a confirmation when I click the upgrade button because the button is too big/in a spot that’s easy to accidentally click/because the item information isn’t visible enough because abc etc etc.
Unrelated to the issue of maxing an item: -
When I can’t do a battle because of storage - please give me an option on the info popup to go directly to the inventory items that have caused the issue, the system already knows what the problem area is AND that I can’t proceed to battles until its fixed, so give me a button to take me there
A way to change heroes more quickly (say by clicking on the hero shield on the top of most screens)
Being able to click on a rewards from a chest gear/spell/minion to see the details of what it is/does (and what attributes it has)
If you finish a goal - make the announcement/popup clickable so I can go to it to collect it immediately if I want to
Allow players to pick a “current goal” and have the progress displayed in the relevant place
OK, so not specially related to UI but it would be great if there was an option for “auto-level new gear if I have more than minor/lessor/… X shards” and an "auto salvage items below " so I don’t have to manually keep gear, to then manually upgrade it (to level 5 or level 9) and then manually salvage it - in order to access the resource cycle and boost my number of salvage, say greater shards
Maybe this could initially be a VIP option “exclusive for at least 6 months” (to give you flexibility to mainstream it later)- it would be a sweet QoL that may encourage players to pay for VIP - without a Pay2Win aspect
I have enough feedback to put in a Quality of Life request for this but I wanted to offer everyone here the chance to share any more detailed/specific thoughts about the upgrading UI.
I hope this helps - and thanks again for anything you can do to fix my mis-click
