40 players total will receive a grand prize, Chosen at random.

Are you people insane? How's that supposed to be fair to the rest of the community? Good Lord, as "Community Manager" you should know how stupid this is. God damn.

Fair? Are you being serious? Where in real world did you see every participant being rewarded with the "grand prize"? "Lets give everyone a car, because it wouldnt be fair if someone wouldnt get it" :C There are prizes for everyone, but if they would give out costume or full set of furniture to the biggest portion of participants who would actually buy it? :D Nothing about having furniture or costume is unfair by any means. You can buy it if you want it so much. And stop complaining about free stuff please.

I mean....if these are the values you want to promote....   = ~ =

Just to specify....BDO isn't the real world and due to the fact that it isn't and that it doesn't cost shit to the GMs to reward their playerbase during some event by making sure they'll all have fun and feel gratified.....you know...maybe...just maybe...it would be worth to plan something better and that doesn't only bless 40 people chosen by rng.

It actually costs them revenue. And there are events/rewards that grant you free stuff, that are very usefull - look at penguins for example <3

I did cook with 1x [Event] Cacao, 2x Mineral Water, 1x Sugar and it said the combination wasn't working. So not only I didn't get my chocolate bar but I don't have [Event] Cacao anymore... [Edit: damn just noticed it was intended for simple cooking, not cooking] So I am royally screwed over? How do I get a new seed for this first week?!

DO NOT DO REGULAR COOKING DO SIMPLE COOKING RIP LEARN FROM MY MISTAKE!(srswhothe-----usessimplecooking)

That is entirely up to you guys, if I had a guess I'd say some of you crafty folks will certainly come up with some kind of plan for WORLD DOMINATION the event.

I miss read the event info and accidently used my chocolate on normal house cooking.. is there anyway to get another cacao?  so we can still take part in the event.

Uh..  I'm not saying "Give everyone a full set of a 2.5k Pearl furniture bundle" 

I'm not even complaining about getting free stuff. I'm just saying that if 1000 do the exact same thing in this event, and 40 of them get this grand prize. Then 960 of participants get screwed over.

If I wanted the new stuff, I'd buy it. I got no problem with spending a bit extra here and there to look pretty.

So... what, we all work together as a community to decide who is the most popular NPC and use the meta/forums/reddit to figure out who to vote for?

and then Russia hacks it anyway

What do you propose than? Bigger number? Different system? Maybe you should write up something constructive instead of saying that CMs are "insane".

All this complicated stuff for few blackstones. I only need costume from list and there is maybe 1% chance to get second popular npc out of over 100+ npcs so yeah noty.

How about not having a crazy valuable prize that only a tiny percentage of people will win?

I want Crio or Lara to win :')

Though Patrigio vote would seem so obvious :'D

Ahhh i cant decide

Deve's "You can even store your worries here!" is a killer too %D

And Igor, the first dude who guides u into the game *_* how to choose? And they all look so cool in masquerade costumes! Too hard

Valks looks super handsome in that costume as well %D

There is a nice strawpoll going on - https://strawpoll.com/wasrzxf

If you want to see how each NPC is faring you can check the results, before voting c:

The obvious answer is that people are already planning (on this very thread) to just meta game the system. If everyone just agrees to vote for one npc then everyone would have the #1 npc. Do you really think it would be smart to give a large percent of the player base their new costume and furniture set for free? If that was the case no one would pay for these costumes and sets unless they were just too inpatient to wait for the event to end.

This isn't even talking about all the other tiers which would have thousands of other players getting pets and such.

 

They make money from the pearl store. They are not going to just hand out items they spent tens of thousands of dollars to create.

Oh good lord, Please point out to me where exactly I wrote down the words "Give everyone this free furniture prize" 

I didn't say anything of the sort. I know how the Pearl store works, I'm not some needy 14 year old beggar, I know how free to play, Non subscription games work.

All I said was that it's unfair to the vast majority of people that only 40 people can possibly win, And you know what, Sure. Maybe that ~Does~ sound like I'm implying that everyone should get the prize. But that's just an assumption on your part, and isn't what I meant at all.

To be honest, I didn't even notice the Meta, or this strawpoll until I started to read your reply. So that's awesome.

I've got no problem buying things from the store if I want them. :P

I was hoping to see Boxes of Valentine Candies as drops, Chocolate Buffs you could buy and gift other players, Teddy Grams (buffs) to buy for other players ("Event" Grams are items you buy for your friends.. schools throughout the US host them every year) A Pet that's an actual Teddy Bear for V-Day, Flowers that you could buy for others in the game. that would contribute to house points, An emote which causes char to ask another player to "Be My Valentine".. There are so many great ideas that could have made this event a thousand times better which would have also generated huge profits for the game but.. ¬¬

Why are we voting on NPC's that are never ever around.. like ever? You do realize everyone will just appoint 1 npc to vote for causing this idea to be a flop. O.o
