Lavientias Event extended ** Updated [1/4/2017] **

303 posts in this topic

Posted

Greetings adventurers,

There is a current issue, preventing Lavientia event items from dropping.
This led to players being not able to acquire the amount of rewards we intended. 

Therefore we decided to extend the event. The drop problem can unfortunately not be fixed during this weeks maintenance.
This means you will only get the daily rewards during the next week (January 4th- 11th) but after that there will be two more weeks with daily rewards plus the chance to loot Lavientia items from monsters and as well as getting them from fishing, gathering etc.

The event will end with maintenance on 25th of January.

Your BDO team

 

** Update 1/4/2017 - 00:50 UTC ↴

The daily rewards will no longer be available from the rewards page from January 4th through January 11th and will be re-enabled upon standard maintenance on 1/11/2017. We apologize for any confusion the original message may have caused.

+3 week daily reward = 21 x 2 pearls = 42. Everyone will be able to get a new shiny box, unless you keep wasting them.

Outdated upon new informations.

It took me a minute to read and re-read Praballo's post... at first I was like... "Wait, the drops aren't getting fixed?" Then I was like... "No, they totally are, just not for next week." And finally, "Whoa, wait, we get a total of three additional weeks, two of which will be with drops? Heyyyyy... that's pretty good." Scrolled down and saw this. Perfection.

 

In the interest of fairness; my "update" -- LOL. I think I've just run out of things to say. That doesn't happen often.

Probably could have just asked them to return the items to you instead of complaining about your lack of foresight and they'd have likely done so... Probably still will if you submit a ticket. Cheers.

Way too long extension for such an overpowered event, i'm already close to the second big box and there are also 100ish gold diamond rings sitting by the side ( that's plenty of random witches, concentrated stones etc ).

1 big box was enough to crash the market. I guess those happy now will be even happier when they get vaporized by rich people in TET crescent/Tungrades/basilisk-TRI ogre, or in general a lot of people having "easy" TRI stuff.

Or even dropping a super worthy crescent out of the box which is either sold instantly for scraps or in 2 months for a normal price, assuming no more events ( who am i kidding ).

Thank you for providing this info before the servers go down. If you hadn't...I would've wasted a considerable stack of diamonds.

The question still remains:

Do the current items like Pearls, diamonds etc. disapear or not?

I truly wished you would have informed us of this sooner. As it stood the event was scheduled to end tonight and as such it made sense to craft one shiny box and use the remaining pearls and diamond to craft splendid boxes and gold diamond rings respectively before the event items had been removed. With this in mind I used at least around 15 pearls and 50 diamonds between the past two or three days which could have been better used had we been informed of this sooner. I'm not asking for any sort of compensation, despite this being out of the player's control, I simply ask that you at least have the motivation to inform your players sooner of changes both large and small sooner than a last minute notice.

Edit: In light of the recent update that states "The daily rewards will no longer be available from the rewards page from January 4th through January 11th and will be re-enabled upon standard maintenance on 1/11/2017. We apologize for any confusion the original message may have caused." I need to ask this: For what purpose? Every time I have ever made a critical post about your company I have always balanced it with fair reasoning, but your communication, or lack thereof, is unreasonable to say the least. Why is it that you seem to see it fit not to double check your information and fulfill the duties your job requires properly? Time after time we ask you to Improve your communication, albeit many times people voice that opinion harshly, but this is something that has gone on since launch. In all honesty it truly makes me wonder if they even pay you to do your jobs because the lack of effort you show is reminiscent to that of a child digging their heels in refusing to do something. You lack the ambition required to preform the necessary functions it takes to manage a community and a game; we see more of volunteer moderators than we do from those who are paid to do it. While I know it's unlikely any of the complaining, flaming or even concrete arguments ever make a difference here I ask that you reflect on the way you conduct yourselves as it is shameful to let such indolence fester in such a way.

Oh shut up, you whiners are unbelievable.   And you are getting 42 more pearls for having 3 weeks of dailies, giving you another box.  So having those 10 extra pearls would not have mattered as you would have 12 extra and wouldn't have been able to make it into a 3rd box anyway.  So quit your crying.

But crying is so much easier....

 

Really though, i agree entirely. Its pathetic how fast the whining starts - even when its a good thing.

More free stuff for doing absolutely nothing but logging in. Please, enough with that already =/.

 

edit: also, by your wording, did you intend for TWO shiny boxes to be obtainable originally? With the pearl drop rate I honestly doubt that.
