House fame event


38 posts in this topic

Posted

With regard to the house fame event, players like me, who joined in 2015 but never got in to the game would still count us Loyal adventurers. Getting to 1000 fame is hard. 

On the other hand the requirement for rookie adventurers is much lower and I only started to play this game 1 month ago, shouldn't we belong into that bracket instead?

Same for me, I only just came back after quitting about 10 months ago so getting the fame isn't easy

With an attitude like that, yes.

It doesn't have to be that way, and if they treat the mass of returning players they currently have gotten back in the past couple months this way, they will lose money on this. No one wants to feel shafted in an event that is meant for everyone. There should either be an exception for returning players (a third tier/category?) or simply make the event something grindy. A daily quest, a loot item like the dark knight seals, maybe even "Gain 100 fame this month. If you make it above x fame, you automatically get all rewards"

There are many ways to do this that don't completely screw over a good portion of players. They know that the number of players who have returnedd in the past month is at a high right now. To do this is just a slap in the face to those players (aka their moneymakers). It's simple business.

As a returning player, I can tell you I am willing to put in the work. But it will be VERY hard to hit 1k in 3 weeks, and I probably play a lot more than the average player, returning or not. If I pull it off, I will be one of the select few that manage to do so.

To be fair if we're marked as "returning player" then there's no reason we can't be put into the other group.

@PM_Jouska @CM_Aethon @CM_Praballo @CM_Yukimura @CM_Tytyes any of you guys can help us low fame returning players out and switch those of us marked as returning players into the other fame pool ?

I never stopped playing and I'm only in the 600 range.  ...  So dedicated Lifeskillers  (ranked up Artisan & Master on only 1 or 2 alts) ALSO got super f***ed over by this terribly poorly balanced system

Which is pretty close to the exact opposite of how the player Economy works  .. and definitely the opposite of how PvP notoriety works

Us returning players who joined after Jan. 1 should be either "returning players" or "rookie players". Most of those loyal players already qualified for the last tier of the reward (most have way more than 1000), meanwhile we, returning players, will miss out. 

 

Why can't the devs put more thought into this?

LOL,  just looked up the top "reward" finally ...   Red Coral earring box ... HAHA.   .... come the eff on, I couldn't think of a more fitting Event to give out some kind of COSMETIC and here they are giving a stupid accessory box.   ...what a total NON-Incentive to even bother making a thread about.  If we could just trade in-game I'd just mail the OP a stupid Accessory of their choice b/c that's how much Silver I have just lying around from dedicated Lifeskilling instead of wasting my resources on bullshit Alts.  ....see this is why I don't even READ the events section half the time and I doubt most other ppl do either

Can confirm. I do not read the events section of the forum. 

However I do use reddit for the patch notes thread, which will link me to the event sections sometimes.

For a new player like me, any reward (red coral earrings) is helpful and I'm sure there are others out there that do not want to miss out

Truth. As a fresh 56, a free 10 million goes a long way. And since theyre statistics page shows only 90,000 chracters have hit 56, A very large portion of theyre playbase can probably benefit from the silver here. Even if it is just 10 mill, which I can easily farm in an hour or two. Free is free, and it's really lame that I might miss out.

Yeah, the only thing I could suggest to boost up your house fame in a short amount of time is to make alts and level it up to 56. Try it with classes that share similar weapons so you don't have to do much weapon switching (Like warrior/valk or tamer/kuno/ninja), shouldn't take too long to boost them up there if you know what you're doing.
