Posted (edited)

you know how broken that is as a buff?... because it doesnt expire on logout/be afk on alt...

 

this 48h exp buff you want can be easily used for the whole week (except you grind 48h without break)

Or do you mean; Please make this event more suitable for me.  xD

Obviously?

Just as they promised in their pre-launch marketing. It's why the game was b2p and not f2p after all.

Imho PA would probably agree if you asked for an item that gives you 100% XP on 2 random days instead.

I actually do things on the weekend. 

You know... parties. Hiking. Sex. Dates. Traveling. 

I'd much rather use two 24 hour combat buff tokens on the weekdays of my choosing.

Kakao hasn't responded, but I suspect it's because there is no mechanism in the game for character specific buffs to countdown and expire when you're not logged into the character.

 

They have 1 day value packs, 1 day Merv's pallet, etc. 

Simply classify the "buff" as a free cash shop item and apply it the same way. Value packs already boost combat XP so there's a way to do it.

Did anyone mention we get daily XP buffs for those who don't play weekends? That's 7 hours a week of 100, or 3.5 hours of 200.

Ofc lots of people  (including myself) would rather have 2 tokens, they are just far superior to a weekend bonus. I don't see them doing this.  Defeats a lot of the purpose of the weekend "event" for the company, and its far more useful for an individual player.  

Also  I don't see this being a "Western" thing. Not sure who said Koreans don't have things to do on their weekends...same reason they have  XP weekends, same reason we have ours...  We aren't exceptional in that regard.

This topic's question makes me think of spoiled kids once more.

THEY DONT HAVE TO GIVE YOU EXTRA XP BUFF IN THE WEEKENDS

But they gave it to us, so be grateful for it and if you can't use it because you are busy that's not their problem. It's not mandatory. Like Always of course there are people who when the game get's "an extra" they feel entitled to complain because the company didn't take into account for this extra all of the player's individual situations and desires.

Grow up.

Once you get past level 50 you'll realize just how much the experience weekends really mean.

Take your time getting there though, you seem to be enjoying yourself.

Or you can let people ask if a change is possible. It's not like it would break anything and it may even help having less people playing on week end to get the XP buff and reduce the server load these days. win win.

People ask with every little or big thing if a change is possible... It's just absurd. But yea of course people can give suggestions, doesn't mean they have to do it.

No idea why people are being against this idea other than being against it just because. Saying "you are spoiled" is stupid. We pay for the game, that's not being spoiled.There is basically no drawbacks to what the guy is suggesting. He is not asking for anything extra that others won't be getting. Just to make it flexible so all can use it.

Nice idea, but probably won't happen. Kakao is as useless as it gets and Pearl Abyss doesn't give a damn about what westerners want. If it doesn't make them money, it will most likely not happen. Find a way for them to make a profit from it and a way for them to add an RNG aspect to it and the odds of this succeeding rise dramatically.

The buff no but the book itself does so the book tends to expire if you aren't an active grinder which sucks in itself.

Wait- how is it broken? Of all things, you did not consider to put expiration on the perks (like 7 days to use until you can get another) so it can't be "abused" or putting a cooldown on it? Just make it a perk buff (which appears next to your level on the upper left hand) similar to Value Pack and have it put a cooldown timer of 7 day for when you actually use it until you can receive another buff.

I feel like the term "broken" is thrown around so carelessly just to try and exaggerate a point.

He's just, wrongfully, assuming it'd work as a character buff so it'd stop ticking when you log out.

It's a event. You paid for the game and you have the game, you did not pay for the event, that's given to you. It's not like they must give XP events at all.. They can just stop doing it and it would not remove the game you paid for. 

There is no way to defend it using your logic. "I bought the game so I should be able to decide when I wanna use the event bonus they give us for nothing."


Plan better and deal with it if you can't make it.

That's like saying saturday is an event just cause it's saturday.

EXP weekends aren't going anywhere, other than perhaps to 200% instead temporarily. They're here to stay, forever. Whatever their marketing rants about them expiring might try to fool you into thinking.

Again. You do not give any reason why it's a bad idea and what are the drawbacks of changing it. You can use the 100/200% bonus whenever you want during the day, why not make this the same??? Why not make it more flexible?

I disagree , ive asked for weekends off on purpose. plus  buffs not ticking down while logged off ; someone can extend those buffs from one weekend to another weekend when its a consumable. Just be happy that we even get them

 

Having everyone on the same level playing field is the fairest. if your sad that people are getting ahead of you in game because they have no life and can play all weekend , then remind yourself that your probably ahead of them in real life vs the game.

during weeknights I typically am playing where my weekends are usually scattered. Would be much more convienent to pop when I am actually able to play. As far as other posts which "encourage players to play during the exp bonus" Maybe when you first start playing this is true but once you hit a gear ceiling and mostly are only grinding for the extra levels or grinding Alts no exp bonus is going to make me change my irl schedule for it so your argument is invalid for most people who play. 

 

Afaik KR gets 100% weekdays and 200% weekends so maybe that is in store for our future?  Just rumors though don't know if this is confirmed
