The dye system sucks ass and is rigged

Nothing new really, I just came back to this game after several months and forgot about it.

Not only is it RNG, but its not ACTUALLY random; Darker shades are like 10x rarer than all the stupid blinding SNOW and SUNSHINE colors.

 

Let's not even mention black, which is for some reason rare as -----. 

There aren't even many colors on the marketplace, meaning the RNG is too shitty for whales to even try profiting.

 

it's cheaper to get the clothes you want in real life.  How -----ed up is that.

 

-----. 

 

You know I'd pay like $50 for a permanent Merv's palette.  ----- it, $100.  I'd pay One Hundred of my EURODINEROS to look fabulous.

Christ the gear is already an RNG nightmare, why did you have to taint cosmetics with it too.  Assholes.

its still shit because once you stop pay / arent able to buy pack on the parket, you are fked and all your dyes are gone.

Not also saying, you use the mervs crap, you need to clean all your preview "real" dye which suck just even more..

 

And even for the very few dye we can by on the market, its still not that often you see them so have to wait for the rare players selling them...

Its not like as player you cant have a "secure" way to have access to somes true dye...

 

But well... its greed over players. Thoses guys are really fked up

yeah, but imho, they did that on purpose to force you to rebuy / gamble them all once again... if they werent that greedy, without much doubt they would have came up with a handy system.

Oh like... Hm... Let's say... Hm.... a dye NPC that sells dye for silver in-game? Even if just the basic ones so they'd still make money from dyes? OH! My bad. THEY ALREADY HAVE THAT IN KR. It's Kakao who's stuck up and greedy in this case since they do not want to implement it in NA/EU -_-. Shame Kakao, shame on you :/.

you're not really "fked", you just have to apply another merv's palette

I let mine run out to test it, it saves your merv's dyes and they come back when you reapply.  not sure if it will save them if you use a regular dye before restoring merv's tho.

So that's what i said, whatever if it save the merv's color when it run out of time. You have the default color back.

And the "conflict" with the "true" dyes is more than a greedy move.

 

I sure do prefer they milk money with that rather than more p2w item, but still, that system still is a deep crap only because they want milk money a bit too hard.

Once again I ask....with no sub and free expansions, how do you think that the company makes money?  I cannot think of one decent game that does not have a sub or a cash shop

I personally consider my valu pack as a greatly rewarded sub.   I don't mind paying because it is voluntary and you can play the game 100% without it, albeit slower or less convenient.  If I don't buy from Kakao, then the company won't be able to run the game.

If you have a better idea, you should tell them about it.   I cannot think of any other way to make money on their product.  They are not a charity for entitled bitter players.

Buy your dyes.  or buy your valu pack.  or play and don't buy but be glad that others ARE paying in the cash shop so you can run the game for nothing.

You can buy the value pack at any time for irl money. Or you can buy it with ig money, with a little bit patience you'll get one. Those 10 mil ig silver are not much if you look at the fact that if you actually play the game your 30% market place money buff will benefit you those 10mil in less than a few days. And buying those random perma dyes is just nonsene, I guess no one is doing that any more if a brain is existing, since merv's palette was introduced and gives us the best possibilites for dying in general. Cosmetic products in mmo's are and should be always available for irl money, that's the point in not going p2w too much. This game is basically f2p now anyway, 10 euros to gift someone the whole game just to get those amount back in pearls or a pet.
