I'm really not having a good feeling about this. It's more of a dread. I hear ominous music playing in the background.
I have two major concers.
Firstly it's the age old problem of making game insanely complicated. More new stuff. More currencies, materials etc etc. Clearly KISS is a foreign concept at GG.
Secondly sounds like another pure pay-to-win component.
If personal effort gets no reward and nothing u do benefits your main account it will be one of those things where u have to be very patient.
You wait for long enough until the big spenders and the 'have to have it first' guys have milked it and financed it. Then hopefully they have bought enough prizes to lose interest and you can get a few scraps by entering and trying hard.
That just doesn't appeal to me.
U need to divide that top 1000 by 3 since alliances are only 20 members. Agreed it's poor rewards for the smaller alliances. No reason for them to even join if they get nothing.
Yep so basically the Halloween update was to get more subscriptions by adding the wishing well to it.
I just read the feedback on this event on the PC forum. We must be glad it was introduced on the PC version first. It was a complete disaster. GGS has to perform some serious damage control.
As someone who doesn't spend any money in outers and was definitely not going to on this one i am kinda sad they didn't introduce that train wreck here. We are missing out on thay compensation package lol.
@zeverso (US1) why do you think that it will work by the time we get it? Based on past experience we either won't get it at all or , if we do, it will still be a disaster. It's not as if Sam's or daimyo worked right by the time we got it.
@Lagertha You just posted a teaser for the new Beyond the Horizon event. I think it is an understatement that this event on the PC platform did not run very smoothly.
What has been changed so that we will not end up in the same mess as what happened last week on the PC platform?
Otherwise I have no other option than strongly discourage any participation in this event until everything is fixed and some fairness has been added to it. Especially when it is true that 90% of the participants get no reward at all for their effort.
Could we maybe have a less vague starting time, instead of "shortly" 3 hours ago...
Holy crap. I've never seen an event more poorly balanced than this event on any game before. If you are not top 5 is not even worth entering.
I didn't comment to this topic before, while I had unreasonably high hopes for this event, but this is the worst of the worst again.
Thanks to everyone who bought the starting deal in the Outer Realm, it's all your foult! GG saw the revenue there and did the same again becouse some players have no standards for game quality.
Really unbelievable that GGS has pushed the event thru. Maybe they were sleeping last week and missed the fact that this event is full of bugs, does not perform and is unfair in any aspect.
BTW. They did the same with the old (test) shop and even dared to say it was by accident.
Stay away from this event for your own mental health.
Why in hell are all observation towers and city states spawning like this????
You got spawned far away from these areas and you wanted to get one? well f*ck you. There is nothing 200 squares from you.
Edit: I happened to get spawned in an empty area. Moving a bit to the map these areas are more common and way too close from one another. But then there is big areas with nothing. Gg was better off copying how storm works, not this. Dont even understand how someone thought this was a good idea
Probably the designers and coders from Storm are gone by now and wrote code that nobody could read :-) so they try to reinvent the wheel.
It would also explain why Storm never got an update since it was introduced (very solid code btw)
Not gone over yet ... not sure I will bother as looking at the rewards bracket .. only top 1k get rewards .... so it’s spend your £$€ for prizes.
Rather give to charity ....
Event is very bugged as expected. Graphics are annoying. Rewards unbalanced. Contribution demands too much money.
The idea behind event is good. It's pity that it was executed so poorly. After all the hype and YT ads this is a big let down.
Which should not be a surprise. We warned about this based on the feedback of the previous PC run but apparently there are stubbern and deaf people in the GGS board.
And I bet you don’t get to keep the equipment u buy there and I can’t see being able to use ur own commanders r troop you have to do all again like outer realms you go over spend to win and don’t keep the stuff you buy so outer realms yet again
And some of us expected this even long before the pc version proved to be an epic fail. It was entirely predictable.
Broken overpriced money grab.
The ominous music has reached a crescendo. Suddenly there is total silence. Confusion reigns. Then the silence is broken by maniacal laughter.
Tbh that's irrelevant if you don't drop a lot of cash because you will get a fair share of nothing.
I think worst off are people who spend a little. Just enough to be worthwhile to be farmed. And no way u get anything or anywhere if u go the free play option. Your only purpose is to provide points to others.
It's a totally toxic event. Cash bullying no cash. Just what we want to teach our children.
@sir alan robson (GB1) they were honest about that. U keep nothing. Only bought rubies.
Well that was a fun 10 hours
Now the server crashed
You should know when ggs creates a new event it will always crash.
