the event is, 100% guaranteed, to increase player quitting rates. A few examples of how:
- Some people who are already starting to get bored with the game will be conflicted with, “man id log in but i dont want to do that stupid event its boring as hell…” “ugh, ill just do it later” then they just never log in, and eventually they’re just routinely playing a different game.
- Some people who are frustrated with the fact that they don’t want to do the event, but are feeling like they are being forced to do it from fear of missing out, thus increasing the chances they will quit the game out of spite .
- Some people will be frustrated that they don’t want to do the event, but will do it anyways mentally kicking and screaming the whole time, contributing to the growing negative subconscious ‘cons’ of the game, which could just potentially make them quit.
and I’m sure there are more reasons. The dev’s made a big mistake by making this event so ridiculously boring and mundane.
This post is me making an observation of the potential negative consequences of the devs making an event like this, not me directly complaining about the event by the way. So the people who want to naysay with “omg man its free stuff stop complaining” can save it, because you won’t be disproving my hypotheses whatsoever.
This post is nothing different than something a good QA team would come up with to urge Smilegate not to make an event that stupid, not me directly complaining. But it is cute to see all the people that don’t understand that concept going “omg bro stop crying”
