Hi, Darkis, and hello everyone

Would they seriously run a promotion when they have to hand out manually requested rewards? How is that even feasible? Sounds really fishy to me. Not to mention how ridiculous money grab that is with straight up leg/myth rewards which should be crafted... main purpose of the game.

I think it’s a great event and we should have something like it on the global server too. Money is what keeps this game up and running for everyone so it seems strange that CC hasn’t done something which basically majority of the games have been doing until now. I think it’s a welcomed development.

More p2w by offering the whales nearly a 100% bonus on their purchase? (based on gem package prices and tradehouse prices of myths and of course support just gifting the high level myths is more reliable than tradehouse supply; I wouldn't be surpriced if people putting in effort to fuse to sell on the tradehouse would feel it as a slap in the face if such an event just out of the blue reduced demand/added supply competition...)
as of 2016-09-11: Player level: 44, City: Eolythes, Blueprints: 517, Mastered: 419, Crafted: 78.61K
(except for tier 1 and some tier 2 artifacts mostly running my shop/gearing self sufficient)

It’s certainly reasonable for the devs to have such an event in a new region in order to recover their investments involved in localizing the game to that region. It allows new players to catch up to veterans or helps that community gain access to myths faster to foster trade amongst them. Regardless, anything that improves overall sales for the game definitely helps the community by keeping the game profitable enough to continue. It might not warrant such an event for the global server but it’s justified for new servers.

So Darkis has no comment on this matter? They are getting Myth items as gifts while we only have the OSD pack....

I'm all for p2w if it revitalizes the game. However I still like the idea of top lists being separated by an additional rank. What I mean is you could have your standard list, which would be Bronze, then after that a top 50 list that is Silver, then Gold,then Platinum. Of course all the p2w whales would shoot up to number 1 platinum spot, but there would be at least a few more chances for there to be #1's. Not quite participation trophy level, but saying you are #1 Gold sounds better than saying you are #51 overall.

Makes me wonder if I am actually on to something here, or if there is a method the the current madness.

I'm just noting feedback from all players across the board to be honest. Stuff like this can upset many and on the other side, make a lot of folks happy.

I've always been one of the guys that throws it around the office on how the time to craft these things, is far too much and with deals like this, that's where I see the big advantage gained.

There are more packages coming in after each has a 5 day cycle and more updates coming.

That being said, we need keys in the TH, that line is pretty long wait wise. :twisted:
