Zudra's Normal, Impressive, Prime Gift Boxes to be deleted on May 12 maintenance


Recommended Posts

This is such BS... what the hell is the reason to delete them so fast. I'm fairly certain I want daevonian skill boxes but... c'mon who knows, maybe I get lucky and I don't need 70 of them, maybe I just need 60. I could then get some ulti stones or w/e... so stupid. I swear to god none of the people on 'the team' know anything about this game.

By the way you are typing it does not sound like you are AFK. This being the case if you start now grab 5 at a time or something you can easily get through all your boxes by the time maintenance comes around.

I think they're trying to lower the number of Stigma Enchantment Stones in the game. The rise in the number of Stigma Enchantment Stones were brought by players who have multiple accounts that did the Zudra Event.

1. By deleting the Zudra Boxes. Some may be forced to choose Stigma Enchantment Stone right now, instead of keeping it in their inventory. If players choose to get Daevanion Skill Boxes, then there will also be lower number of Stigma Enchantment Stones in game. 

2. The new Community Event which rewards players who use the most number of Stigma Enchantment Stones among others. 

It is an event. So I think the game managers only did it to control the influx of Stigma Enchantment Stones among other reasons. I don't know. Just my observation. 

Also, I think they should reconsider the mechanics of the Zudra Event for future purposes to avoid exploit.

I don't have the amount of daevonian essences to use with them... So I can't really do that.

People with 100 accounts already opened and took the stigmas anyways, there is no reason for them to get the daevanions in alt farm accounts, it is the actual players that will have to make the decision over what good reward to take and which one not to take.

Why the nyerk did they announced the deletion in the last few ours of the event? Don't players need to sleep? All the accounts visited during a day, must be revisited again to open the gifts? Can't normal main characters doubt which enchantment stones - Ultimate or Legendary, will they need more? RNG is random and  fails a lot!!! I asked  a few days ago in a separate topic whether they will be deleted, nobody with the knowledge replied, I followed that topic, suddenly I needed to search for another topic, new and not followed, just because I felt some uncertain worry inside? Not even a link to or from my older topic  with this question!! The further  the more sadistic and mocking NCSoft becomes!!! Why do they hate us so - not just me personally but the whole players community????

This is my topic with a clear question, 3 days ago!!!

If they didn't announce it we would ask them to restore them

If they announced it earlier we would have had enough time to think of it.

...but they did exactly what is worse, announce it the last moment and this way alienate the players once again. Thank goodness I saw it early enough.

This information SHOULD have been in the event details the first day we got the event.

I think  their minds got obsessed by the Balaur-Reptiloids a few years ago, it manifested in the fall of 2018 on NA, even earlier in their native Draconic country... The scenario of  so dramatic world destruction, the removal of the Abyss, virtually removaL of flight, cause the remaining tiny flight zones don't really fit for flight. In the Eye Of Reshanta, all siege combat occurs on the  ground! What a shame! And it's not even always available for entrance! :( Then , they invented Brahma Dredgion!  They clearly believe  the Universal God is Reptilian! :(

Imagine if they deleted the garden aquired event coins aswel... lololol.. I would be sad but not suprised.

On the other hand this was part of permanent content to the game.. but as so often we get it only for 50%.. or we get it broken.. or not at all :)

NCWest reserves the right to end events early and deleting items like this in any scheduled/emergency maintenace with very short notice

They also have the right to throw their server off the cliff if they decide so, but when they have a business they need to be reasonable. Deleting items is part of the rules, but they can let people know the rules beforehand.

Stormwing rules were given months ago when stormwing event started. They chose to tell everyone they plan to delete the rewards a few hours before maintenance.

They should be mindful of why this might be wrong and say "we forgot to tell you they are getting deleted now, so we will keep the boxes one more week, make sure to open them" or something.

I opened all mine but I was more than sure that there would have been people that wouldn't come to forums to read anything the last moment.

Kibbelz did however say that the Stormwing boxes will be deleted when the event ends. unknown.png

Then I must have missed this, or they edited their post later to justify it. It happened with event notes in the main page as well.

Anyways, I am being a white knight to those that didn't see this coming. I am good for my self, I did all mine.

Seriously Zudras boxes are marked will be deleted, almost all event items last while have been getting deleted.  So why not just deal with it knowing likely they gonna delete weather they post it or not which they did.  Honestly if you haven't learned your lesson yet after has happened the last few times then that is on you not them.  This isn't just about weather they should delete or not delete.  My opinion is they should not  delete the rewards gained but should delete the tokens and egg etc.  

However the definition of insanity is doing same thing over and over and expecting different result.  You all knew this was most likely coming and informed or not at last minute should of dealt with it weather agree or not with them deleting rewards.

They should at least have the decency of warning that x item will be deleted after the event ends, like EU does, e.g:

IDK, maybe it's too much to ask for.

Maybe for them it's a lot of work to add one phrase at the end of a event post, I guess. 

Sometimes I get the feeling they even like to have extra work, you know? Do one wrong thing here, have to fix it, repeat the process.

NC, you guys really need to make announcements such as the Zudra's boxes deletion date visible in the event description itself. Some of us don't have all day to troll around the forums looking for cookie crumb tidbits of information dropped here and there. Myself and my boyfriend saved all our Zudra's gifts to enchant stigmas for new toons and combine daev skill books, only to find they are gone without proper warning. The opportunity given from the Stormwing event was the only thing keeping us from quitting Aion entirely. Tiny mentions on the forums about the lifespan of the rewards are NOT the place to do this, if you think all your players are paying attention to every single thing written on these nyerk filled forums you are extremely WRONG. Yet another horrible disservice to your playerbase, another slap in the face. How come worthless event items like "honey" and the useless garbage filling my quest cube stay forever, but the only reward I cared about gets deleted? After hearing that previously, these boxes lasted until the following year's Stormwing event, we thought we were in the clear. We certainly were not patrolling the forums TUESDAY NIGHT, the night before the patch, looking for hints about whether the boxes would be deleted or not. Between the two of us that's almost 100 of the high tier boxes simply vanished. It's the last straw, I'm so sick of the negligence and lack of attention NCWest gives its players. I wish I had gone forward and sued you guys last year when I threatened to, I should have never taken your offer for resolution and would have spared myself endless frustration and left with a tiny bit of satisfaction. Hindsight is 20/20, they say.

I've seen the EU patch notes and they're clearly posted and explained in great detail. If only you had the decency to be transparent about things like this from the very start in the event descriptions. You should really hire a professional writer to detail your events as they come out, most of the time they come out confusing as all get out and seem like they were thrown together in just a couple of minutes, omitting major and important details. Every time there is a large new event, for a week after everyone is asking how to do it and what is going on with it, because your announcements are so poorly written and lack critical information that any decent game company would take the time to describe. A high school student with a D average could write a far better description of your events than your incompetent staff does.

Anyways, I said this was the last straw. Goodbye Aion, and go to hell NC. I'd like to say it was nice knowing you but that would be a lie. Learn to treat your playerbase with the respect and attention they deserve for their mysterious unwavering commitment to a game they once loved, that is now managed by incompetent idiots who don't care at all. I'll miss all the wonderful friends I made in this game, the only redeeming experience I had since I returned to Aion with high hopes and nostalgia. The only thing that keeps your game afloat is your dedicated players, I'd say again to learn how to respect your players and treat them right but I already know it's hopeless and you don't care at all.

Bye.

Why delete them at all. We can only use them on our own account. Cant be sold, cant be brokered. Why? We earned them If i want to have those boxes filling my inventory then so be it. Makes no sense to me.

Because then you'll be uninclined to spend money on the next P2W event that rewards the exact same thing because you'll already have the same items ready to use in your inventory.

It's all just predatory to make sure you always need something.

It's funny because it's one of the many design choices that just continue to put new and returning players further and further behind, because those items don't actually get absorbed into the economy, it means you're technically put behind if you weren't able to use them. It's really bad design for a healthy game economy and balance.
