The banner they posted is totally worthless too, because not a single human being is going to log in, see three windows offering them free stuff, and then think “WAIT - I should check for a banner announcement under my chat window before claiming all my freebies!”
They need to just restart this event and allow people to keep what they’ve already claimed. The longer they wait, the harder it’s going to be for them to resolve this amicably.
I wish people reporting this would stop saying they made a “mistake”.
I didn’t make any mistakes.
I had a moment of free time, logged in, clicked on Event Information, and read it through.
Then made the same logical conclusion as everyone else based on the advertised rewards.
Uninstalled the game and won’t bother coming back if the devs don’t fix their fuck up. The solutions are simple, they’re simply not willing to do it. I’m just gonna sit here and watch the game have a slow death.
I dont get the extreme reactions of uninstall, won’t come back. This is just the first of many express character events… if everything follows according to KR/RU, then there will be one every new class release; if i remember right.
I’d really appreciate some sort of reaction from officials aswell.
On a side note: Why is anything in the game that is untradable character bound to begin with? Why not make everything that you can’t trade on the market / auction house roster bound. I really don’t see a reason as to why I shouldn’t be able to put my T1 / T2 mats into my roster storage but instead am forced to just throw them away on my T3 main. Same for other currencies, boxes, engravings, etc. The only reason I can come up with if I’m really stretching my imagination is that they are trying to create scarcity to make you farm up more mats on your alts, but even that seems nonsensical in a game that is for the most part centered around roster progression and is not only alt friendly, but to an extent even requires you to play alts. Baffles me.
I don’t like how people compare this to the boss rush situation since they intentionally mislead people with the preview picture and did not include anywhere on the preview page that it was intended for below lvl 1100 characters, or show the other rewards. It just doesn’t make sense why they can’t just make the items roster bound (still untradable to market), why are they being so stingy?
There is no other way to demonstrate unsatisfaction with their incompetence. Once the number of players crumbles and their pockets take the hit they will wish they simply rolled back the servers, restarted the events and gave generous compensations. It’s almost like they didn’t learn anything with New World.
They feel as if they were scammed, which is completely reasonable based on how the event was represented in game. I had logged in to buy the battlepass, but that got put on hold as I am now* waiting to see what their resolution will be for this situation.
