All Weight 5 Shields (and a few accessories) just became Super Premiums

WOW, so out of nowhere I just found I have about 16 extra super premium items, 12 shields and 4 accessories.

I complained a while back (on Youtube, of all places) that the shield system makes no sense in Happy Wars. How some super premium shields are actually inferior to premium shields. EG: Weight 5 premium angelic book was superior to weight 5 super premium golden eagle shield.

Go in your inventory and look at your shields, all your weight 5 shields will have a super premium star next to them now.

What this means:

It means people who spent lots of tickets on shield packs before the change and got any weight 5 shield have essentially got a bunch of super premium items rather easily without happy time. Now this change has come into place, you can expect all these weight 5 shields to be incredibly rare/hard to get outside of happy time. Everyone who invested in shield packs and got weight 5 shields whilst they were premium items has had a heck of a deal, any new players starting out will have to pay over the odds in "happy time" to get anywhere near the same amount of shields that people got before the change, when the items were just premium and available commonly in normal happy card packs.

This also means that people who got the decent shields to level 15 when they were premium have a significant advantage over those who didn't, because now those shields are super premium items it will be much harder to get them all to level 15, the shields in question are listed below and there's quite a few of them.

The shields that used to be weight 5 premium shields which have now been made weight 5 super premium shields are as follows:

Angelic Book

Champion's Kick Mitt

Italian Pizza

Kick Mitt

Mercenary's Shield

Mona Lisa

Netherworld Gate

Purple Shield

Shield of Glory

Shield of Valor

Special Forces Shield

Tragic Kick Mitt

Addendum: as they've just revamped the shield system, it seems now shields are allowed to be weight 4 and super premium also, seeing as the new "Vampire Guillotine" is a super premium weight 4 2 socket shield.

Update: seems some accessories got made super premiums also:

Masquerade Mask

Mouse Nose

Special Controller

Savannah Zebra

I have a couple of these (purple shield/shield of valor) but no doubles unfortunately.
At least they're now more exclusive though, I can defend with style!
