Christmas event/New year event review
Already did Halloween event review and now it's time for christmas/new year. Must say im extremly disapointed the way this year event have been done from papaya part, this for sure is the worst Christmas/New year event i have experienced since 2007 and after near perfect Halloween Event wich was the best Halloween Event we had since 2007, it was a real step back in quality for Christmas/New year event so yea time to move right away to pros and cons.
To be honest not many pros for this event at all.
- Stats for costume really nice
- Stats for Parca wings also decent
- Visual design for costume/wing are awesome for Christmas motive
- 20 seed of dream exchange for Christmas gift random box also decent
- Christmas gift convertation to New year gift was a really good move
Well there are loads of cons.
- No reasonable exchange rate for spare Christmas gift/New year gift and Parca gift. Simply bad thought through in this section, for example 15 seed of dream exchange rate for set of christmas gifts, where christmas gift 3 is literally impossible to obtain due to bug and low drop rate.
- Most of event content was buged or way too much time consuming to obtain ingredients, for example Deux Marble dg was pretty much only decent spot to get Santa spawn, asuming players had plenty Camouflages, for majority i can assume players where able to do only 1 free daily run. Dragon nest/Mitera fire pot buged since Santa didn't spawn or maybe it does with very low rates.
- No Santa spawn after killing regular monsters across different fields
- No Christmas Milk and Cookie drop
- No extra rewards exchange option, let say Shiny Rudolf rune random box (7/15/30/90 days for 100-200 seed of dream) or any other christmas themed rewards.
- 3 day infinite perpetuus box upgrade option with the chance to Permanent version was simply a easy cash grab from Papaya part, pretty much killed any reason to have all the dgs linked to creat Dragonic Perpetuus, i suppose to Papaya view point it was a huge PRO for their made event but one thing for sure, for the community ruined one of most important content in the game, maybe just put those boxes for sell on cash shop as perpmanent option and remove all the other dgs since clearly your pay to win scheme worked with this content.
- Fail rate on Parca wings, simply stupid decition, i think majority people would have prefered fixed parca gift quantities to be collected and then exchanged, like it was during Dark Arcadia wing box exchange.
- For the most part event had no extra boost to obtain extra seed of dreams for Christmas costume/Parca wing. The only way to get these items where by spending long hours in lower maps and killing regular monsters for seed of dreams but thats regular content wich i bealive is buged as well since in Mitera there are no Seed of Dream drop available or cash shop random box deals they had during this event.
Clearly papaya ignored suggestions that players did request. I personally did write a ingame mail to [GM]Veronica about Christmas gift/Parca Gift seperate exchange option to seed of dreams. For example. Christmas gift/Parca gift (1} exchange option to 5 seed of dreams, for Christmas gift (2) /Parca gift (3) 10 seed of dreams and for Christmas gift (3) and Parca gift (2) 15 seed of dream exchange rate. Acording to [GM]Veronica she did forward this idea to Developers and confirmed that they are working on it but the result we never saw it, suppose content developer doesn't give the fuk what [GM]s forward.
Pretty much this event was heavy based on cash shop content, i would say only Cristmas event feel i had by doing Deux Marble daily one time free dg run. But i manage to farm enough Seed of Dreams as regular drop we have on lower maps, event had no impact what so ever on me, if seed of dream drop wasn't available....well maybe i would have obtained costume box
How this event should have been
- Well for the start on every single DG there should have been 100% santa spawn rate, wich have higher rates to get Parca gift 2 and Christmas/New year gift 3, cash should would be an alternative for those who are lazy to do dg runs anyways.
- There should have been Santa appearence after killing regular monsters on any field, lets say 10-15% chance but more drops add in (1.), for example Christmas Milk/Cookie drop, a chance of Shiny Rudolf rune drop.
- Seperate gift coin exchange option for seed of dreams Parca gift 1/Christmas/New year gift 1 to 5 seeds, Parca gift 2/New year/Christmas gift 3 for 15 seeds and Parca gift 3 and Christmas/New year gift to 10 seeds
- Extra reward exchange option, for example Shiny Rudolf rune random box 5/7/15/30 days for 100-200 seed of dreams. Panda Mount/Uniq Panda pet egg.
- Never implemented upgrade option for 3 days infinite perpetuus box to permanent version.
Rating for this event : A solid 2/10, really step down comparing to awesome Halloween event we had.
