u're Kidding, right?

In the past I took your words as plausibe and reasonable words (most of the time).

But now I can't agree more with ppl that call you and the others who play "Aion forums online" the NCsoft templars LOL

 

#justsayin'

Whatever.

I was honest when I said I could buy one omega. One. Spent more time PvPing during this event than farming fatties. But what I have seen is hundreds of players running back and forth for hours upon hours. The leagues are almost always full. 24/7. Hime told us how they calculated the prices. You can blame the zombies that 24/7ed this for how high the prices are. 

And tbh.. calling me an 'Aion Forums Online" player is rather silly. Considering I am a general and run a legion that PvPs and PvEs. But thanks for reading anything I have written and at least at one point thinking I was reasonable!

Thank yo for publishing the rates, and confirming that :

(a) whomever reviewed the event likely does not interact with the community in-game 

(b) did not review the event design beforehand with any active players

I don't know how what metrics you use, nor what effect you think that revised rates will have on the ecomony, but I can tell you that this event is now  completely worthless.

Congratulations, you've succeeded in ruining an event that didn't involve the BCM,  I hope more players will get back to other activities now too.

Honestly, I think lower prices would be fair...  Not everyone can no-life the game and make 3k coins in 3 days. Hell people are going to be lucky to get 3k coins in the whole event if they have a job or family. I agree with people saying making them untradeable event items, and lowering the cost. And christ the title prices? Those titles aren't worth 1200 coins

Really? This is much better than I thought it would be. @Hime explained where the numbers came from. If you think these are too high, blame those that did nothing but farm 24/7. Those are the numbers they used to set these prices.

I can buy exactly one omega and I think these numbers are fair.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA


right.

So much for trying to catch people up in upgraded pvp gear to breathe some life back into the game with those Bullshat prices.  If you farm for the next two weeks straight you might get 1 or 2 upgrades....

@Hime @Cyan

So anything on how often boxes spawn? Cause as it is, everyone has keys and there's never any boxes and especially never any of the big boxes to open. So what's the point of having keys in the first place?

So everyone should have no life to get some Omegas or Soulstones or whatever?
Well most ppl here have a life and dont do farm like some .... 24/7 .. thats a bad joke from  ncsoft isnt it?

1 Fattie gives you 3 coins , so you need kill 83 fatties for 1 Omega!!!!!  Thats a fckg bad joke.


The Prices before didnt hurt the economy (players) you mean it hurts ncsoft, that wasnt p2win event. FAIL

What if they nerfed SFT in the middle of the event, because too many players was running it as well?  Yes Blame the people who nyerken play their game, that is so obvious, why did no one think of this?

Hey folks, it's a fair request so here are the new prices that we're waiting to update to live. They are higher than the previous prices due to the high amount of Gold Protectorate Coins being collected. When determining the new prices, we looked at the average rate players were getting the coins and made a first pass using that information, and then we made a second pass where we brought the prices down a bit to account for natural tailing as the event progresses.

A fair price based on the old rates?  You could easily farm 20 coins an hour solo killing regular mobs which is two omegas an hour.  Essentially now it takes 2.5 hours to farm an omega if you just do the fat mobs constantly, and it kills the event for people who are not just coin farming.  And they are cutting the event by a nyerking week.  Of course people are upset.

Guessing you missed this part.  Tells how the prices were calculated

My calculations are correct, at best you're getting 5 bags every 6 minutes (which is extremely difficult) you only get 150 coins an hour, most can only do 3 bags every 6 minutes which is 90 coins every hour.  I could easily farm 20 coins an hour by myself killing regular mobs before the fatties were discovered.  So it went from 2 omegas an hour to 1 omega every 2.5 hours for most people.

At most it should 10x price, not 20-25x.

It's exactly what they did, but their calculations didn't account for the casuals, its more-so based off the people who've farmed like 18/24 hours in a day easily

These will be the final prices.

Items Price
Royal Sentinel's Weapon Box 1250
Royal Sentinel's Chest Armor Box 800
Royal Sentinel's Leg Armor Box 600
Royal Sentinel's Gloves Box 450
Royal Sentinel's Shoulder Box 450

Tempering Solution 350
+11 Manastone Selection Bundle 350
+12 Manastone Selection Bundle 550
[Title] Capable 1500
[Title] Mogul 1500
Tempest Commander Soulstone 100
Iron Wall Commander Soulstone 100
Defense Commander Soulstone 100
Contribution Commander Soulstone 40

We are actively working on bringing back the event merchants as soon as possible. It will require server downtime and we were hoping to get them back up during tomorrow's maintenance, but unfortunately we were not able to get the required build in time for tomorrow.

 

well, thanks for killing the event, do you think we are slave of the event or what?? @Hime , i'm quitting of this endless event farm ...
i have like 3 hours of playtime per day, 250 coins to get a single omega takes like 2 hours to farm, i prefer to do Drakenseer's Lair and get 3 omegas in a single run which takes 10 minutes ...

What will happen to they keys used to open boxes after the event is over? There are so many people in the Eye, it's difficult to even get one box for yourself.
