So... a limited time event that has specific times that it's active on a given day to take place of the game function that was available as part of the natural leveling process. Huh.
The grind is tedious enough as it is (note: i didn't say it was hard, other than summoning the motivation to log in) why the removal of intended rewards, awkward office schedule styled events, and such?
I understand that from the AMA the response is a honorable "Well, it wasn't fun so we removed it." but it just doesn't work like that! Don't remove something until you have a replacement ready to roll out. D: (and not a temporary fix event!)
I agree with people complaining about a schedule. EME this really isn't that complicated. When you force people to play your game during certain times, you are asking people to quit your game. What you have told me with nexus is, give up your weekends or you wont get your pvp gear. Do you have any idea how stupid of a decision that is for you to make? I cant believe you would make such a choice. Sorry but I can't be subtle about this. People have lives, they want to see their friends, their girlfriends expect them to come out with them on a Friday.. etc. and yet you create a conflict between MMO life and real life.
The answer is simple. Have more events than one is allowed to do in a particular week or 2 week period. Everyone is allowed 4 nexus events a week. You schedule 10 of them at various times. Wow that was hard to figure out.
Honestly, I love the game. Gameplay's fun and challenging, enchanting needs some fixes to make it less RNG-based but otherwise I think the grind's appropriate. Basically, I don't want to quit.
Events like this bull[filtered]? That are only put in to fix a problem that EME caused out of sheer negligence? This is a huge part of why I want to quit. Every time I see a time-restricted event that doesn't have off-peak hours as well to cater to everyone, every time I see a poorly thought out change to fix a problem that didn't exist only to cause several others to spring up, every time I see people asking for information that never comes, I want to stop giving money to them.
Honestly, I really wish that this forum had an upvote/downvote system so we could tell EME just what we all think of a lot of their changes to the game. I think I can guarantee that this post would be pretty heavily downvoted.
I don't get why the event is even timed. If this event is similar to the treasure chest event in CBT...then making it timed was a horrible idea. It's most likely so the servers are not flooded with items, but still...
We seriously need more information about this event.
Just an update from their twitter..
"So in the event we have to literally hunt them?" Yep! The caiman thieves will appear randomly in the world for you to find.
Love the idea for this event, wonder what the rare items will be. Definitely would love to see more events like this in the future, especially if it's hunting and gathering ^_^
Is this return of the Lucky Eggs? Lol
