I used to plan my playing time around these.

Ever stop to think maybe this is your reason? No one plays to play anymore, they all wait for an event to do anything. That is not cost inducing towards keeping the servers active or open if people only played at event times.

It's ludicrous that people only level during double exp or only sp farm during double sp. You get used to be pampered and coddled and having events do all the work for you, it's no wonder they stopped. Events should be special, not expected. They should be something that is awesome when it does happen, not something you wait on.

Everything can be done without events, sure it will take a bit longer or might be harder, but this is a game and it's not supposed to be easy all the time or have crap handed to you. Last Chaos has always been a grinders special with things done the hard way, either you want to play and do or you pansy out and quit. Only hardcore gamers will survive here, it is not for the weak.
Well, aren't you a little ray of sunshine :)
I do admit I could have phrased that better. Perhaps I should have said, "I always plan on being on during these events" instead.

It's interesting that you somehow got the notion that I need to 'pampered and coddled' as you so acerbically put it. I have never and never will need my hand held. I've worked my tail off to get where I am now. The events I listed just help.

btw, if memory serves me correctly, I remember you from a long, long time ago. Perhaps you remember 'fudgeflinger'? :P

Always have been. I'm not a confectioner so I tend to not sugar coat things.

What I said still holds true, although not directed at you. Too many people were only playing during events and not other times. (Remember when Aeria claimed the upgrade bonus tool was broken for 2 years? That is because the only time people would upgrade their gear and weapons was on Sunday after quiz during the upgrade event). This isn't a new concept, this is just the first time we've seen it at gamigo.

I do indeed, you were a Moderator at Aeria for a while. Along with Beav and Ona.

Awesome! Not a lot of people around from those days ;) Ona was such a sweetheart and the beav! I remember him fondly :rolleyes:

After Aeria completely changed lvling (made it SO easy) around '08-ish, my wife and I were so pissed after having worked our tails off to get to a high lvl that we both quit.

Events gone or diminished miss them?

No one is posting on this so I will. If you miss these events say somthing about it lets be heard. Pet double xp event. I have not seen one in forever -.- 800% jewel fusion not 200% like I heard so many complain about last round. Last one mostly for new players I think is help full is upgrade event I think it was at 400% not to long ago and now its 200%. The upgrade % is very poor with 200% events you just moved from very poor to poor. These event's have allways been why I liked/ & played. I think they are key for new players and old ones as I miss them

There was never a 400% upgrade event it is either 150% or 200%. We just recently had a 12+ hour jewel fusion event and double exp as well. Your second to last sentence is part of the reason we don't have them as often anymore since people were only playing for the events.

Gear upgrade events help move some drops around. Selling not upgraded gear or gear with low + is close to not happening (at least for me).
On the last upgrade event I think i sold 7 or 8 low plussed armor pieces. Not a big gold gain, just an example.

With the upgrade chances poor as they are I do not upgrade without upgrade event = I do not by runes and RoPs. Blame me if you want with the twisted logic above, but I refuse to waste resources for nothing.

AP or not AP? (Now IC or not IC?) That is the question...
It is hard to fight armed with that when your opponent is armed like this:

I have combined all the threads (there have been 5 total) regarding this exact same thing. As per the posted rules, please use the search function:

Quoted

To ensure, that the forum is as informative a possible, you need to follow those guidelines before creating threads and posts.
  • 3.1 Use the search function to look for similar threads before creating a new one. If such an old and suitable thread already exists, you need to continue that one.
No one should rely upon events to play, events should be a reward for something accomplished...not an expected everyday/week occurrence.

What we were seeing was people solely playing (meaning actually doing something other than sitting in merch mode or at arena) when there was an event on.

No one is blamed for anything (and I really fail to see your reasoning behind that wording to be honest), there were far too many events being relied upon to play a game that is meant to be played for fun...not just as a countdown to the next event.

Believe it or not, people are also potential customers even with no events running. Most of the old schoolers that were here since 2007+ realize the game is far easier today than it was since even 2010. New players are seeing the game as it's meant to be played as opposed to being told "wait for a XX event until you do XX". And most of them are now playing even without events.

I can name at least 5 games off the top of my head who run events solely on holidays, and people do this thing called playing the game without them. Yes, we used to run way more server events and now we don't. I won't name them, however, but they are there.

An official response was wanted, it was received. I will not get into debates over this, so this will be the only response I or any of my staff will give. I will not get into a debate over "buts" and "what-ifs" and "Well thens". I understand some will not be happy and that cannot be helped, one cannot please everyone all the time.

Good day and happy gaming.

Events to help low lvl players make gold

Definitely need events that will give low lvl players items that high lvls will buy. The economy is stagnant because high lvls don't buy anything from low lvls they just suck money out of the economy on owl pills, this means no one has gold to afford to more expensive items. When a new players starts this game and looks in a merch and see's majority items worth 100m-5b and then they looks at there feed and see they get 20 gold a mob, that is incredibly daunting so no wonder a LEGIT new player that doesnt have a main is such a rare sight. Doing this would make the economy flow more and attract more NEW PLAYERS. Gamigo's priority should be trying to make this server grow! I was lucky that i started this game during the Euro event so i had fest boxes and keys to make gold BUT if i had started now where there is NO items that high lvl's will reguarly bought of low levels. i wouldn't have carried on playing.

Maybe another event that drops boxes that give a random chance of getting an item BUT the drops aren't as good as fest boxes. OR They drop RoP's for lvl31-90 or whatever just something that either allows a lower player be able to fund himself or atleast equip himself.

To 'TySan'
Ppl didn't complain because of drop events , we all love them.
Players weren't happy because we don't have so often as it used before dbl sp/xp/drop event/ pet xp. Fusing/removing or melding gems, upgrading events and so on.
We used to have one or more of them every week, and now its once a month or more.
IMO more events would make lc economy better because the gold would flow around from 1 player to another, because if u don't offer something good to spend ur money on it and good reason , most of players wouldn't bother.


The most painful goodbyes are the ones that are never said and never explained.

I never really relied on events even before I started buying AP/IC. Only event I really find a must is a jewel melding event if you wish to meld high level jewels. They are too expensive to meld without any JPS and it once took me around 50 JPS to meld a level 15 gem without the event. But other than that I never really cared about the other events. I just did monster combo or drop farm in dratan for the 50s armor or the 69 weps and just npc'd those until I could afford a PBI/PSSP. The cursed weavers in Egeha were a pretty good way to make money. But I guess all those have been pretty bad ways ever since the dupers ruined the economy. :D Anyway, if I was a new player joining the game today, I wouldn't stay very long.

I never said people are complaining. i basically said we need more of them but for low levels, to get gold circulating through the economy.and to give high lvl's a reason to buy items from low lvls... read next time.

New Events

I think I have a pretty good idea....(you all must have smelled something burning)!! Here it is:
On any given day is a Maze day. Somewhere in iris a player will step into a rift...his/her screen goes dark but says Maze Ahead....when the player moves the darkness gives way to a visible passage....as you move more of the terrain becomes visible. You cannot move backwards so you must move forward slowly and make your turns carefully. If you make it to the exit you get a fantastic prize like 3 CSS, or a pet leash, or a premium ticket, etc...The odds are not in your favor but the prize makes the effort worth while. There would be several of these strewn throughout the game for that day. These instances or events would be announced during the week...how many of these per day and where placed would be up to the CM/GMs.
This obviously would be a new add on program and cost may be prohibitive....but it seems like an interesting activity for players that are lucky enough to step into these game zones. And the added mystery and surprise should draw players to the game. Could even upgrade this program to include some kind of monster blocking the exit that you would have to defeat!
I really know how to spend Gamigo/Brodabund's money...lol.

idea for an event.
use alber and two teams of gm's
1 side vs the other side ppl should go help their gm's defeating the enemy's gm's
for each player showing up for this each gm should have 500k hp for each play on their enemy side attending to the event
and should be setup fellow party with gm's as leaders and if your to l8 to show u dont get to play the event.
reviveing at location not allowed gotta start run back to the battle from the town when you die attending to the event.

just some idea to have alber being used as event here no1 gets red name or uses pets could be fun for all the amount of hp on the gms is just an idea to make it last a little while when 1 teams gm's are dead the team with live gm's win and prices could be anything from a little more rare selection of snowman's masterstones +17 gm made acc dif rewards to the ppl on the winning team and on how good u did if u fx made moste dmg towards the gm kill or got the killing blow

would surely get ppl's attention and have ppl show up for such events. i kno its not likely to be as ppl below lvl 100 are able to attend but surely something they got to look forward to. to attend too.
