The whole aura issue is a huge hole in their planning.
It was obviously not intended to be used in such way (it falls in the category of exploiting, but they won’t ban those people cause there are probably too many who did it).
If anything they should remove that aura and not give it to everyone else.
If they consumed the Aura, which they most likely have now considering AGS just gave them a heads up…nothing will happen and the rest of us will have to pay for 1 year sub while still being stuck in queues with our own paid Aura. This is extremely bad.
Server wide claims for account wide benefits is definitely a sign of inexperience and should be avoided at all costs. Blue gems are kind of tricky since they are kind of server wide but can be used for one account wide purchase. They need to implement a flag or system to make some rewards only claimable once per account.
LoL … Does that mean people who play only on EU central will be safe against this removal? I’m worried about it will be some mistake again / no offense against you and your development team. But I have saved my aurora from playing before release - gifts from you, etc. in storage and I’m scared to lose it.
Idk what event you mean. I hear rumors about EUW before anyway. Is a chance to get this 1-year aurora from this event now for EUW and use it only there? Or its internal problem connected with aurora was used for both regions once you will use it ?
Not important anymore since Roxx has cleared it up and all the aura and blue crystals used to buy further aura will be removed. It was unique rewards given on EU West to make it more appealing to move to, except people were not moving to EU West, just making characters to claim rewards that gave account wide effects (The Aura) and still continue playing on EU Central giving them a huge advantage of 365 days subscription over normal players who wouldn’t get that who continued to just play on EU Central. The issue is all cleared up now, this is no longer possible, they patched it this morning and will be removing the Aura gained via those EU West Login Rewards. So if this is a fact and is being rolled out, this means the entire playbase will be treated equally and that was my biggest concern, not the exploit itself, but players potentially being treated differently and getting a edge over other players for essentially no effort.
Problem fixed. No longer a problem. I await to see the actual evidence and results of this though. I believe the community deserves the transparency around this on an official post.
You seem to be pretty happy of how amazon once again fucks us over… let me guess, you don‘t have an account on EUW.
Amazon is not doing anything correct here, so many issues left uncommented/unsolved: big queues, aura not showing up, matchmaking broken, cant create character, thousands of bots on every server farming gold, powerpass completing all roster quests making it unable to claim any roster quest reward you haven‘t done before powerpassing, etc
But beware when players can get free aura, this is where we need to act FAST! -_-
