Just leave the event as it was and let people get their halloween collections done. For once is the only good thing that has ever happened in aion this year.

Really, how is it that on the Apostle thing you couldn't pivot, but now you are able to remove transformations based solely on your own mistake, not on exploitation?

NCWest is still out here acting like we're in 6.0 and Legendaries are these rare, coveted things. A free Legendary?????? Great googly moogly, we can't let them get an ugly Halloween transform. Much le

I don't think they will remove the Halloween forms players got without the key, considering they didn't when players got extra Pixel transforms or 4-6 extra Apostle forms from Storm Wing. I'm one of the few players who did not benefit from either incident. With the Pixel incident, they gave players who did not get extra Pixels one for free, which I thought was nice.

The Apostle incident was a total disaster. Players who did not get extra Apostles were not given anything while tons of  players were able to use their three restoration tokens to get 4 Apostals. That was a terrible decision.

I was able to harvest 35 Pumpkins and turn them in for two Halloween contracts. These are the ONLY Halloween contracts I have on my entire account. Personally, I feel like it would be a nice gesture to repeat what happened with the Pixel incident and give player who didn't turn in their pumpkins one free contract and just chock it up to a mistake and move on. Sure, some people might have horded candy or pumpkins from last year and actually got all four Halloween transforms unlocked, but that's not really a big deal considering no one will actually use them.

The pixel thing was not the same, the only benefit was that people could  buy the box for free, instead of the 50 petals or whatever it should have cost. They still only got 1 key for it, so no one got more than 1 pixel, they just avoided doing the mob KS for the event items that was used to buy it.

For this "happy little accident" they could give another key i guess or dunno, doubt they will sent contract to all, when they are also selling them. The Apostle thing was blatant abuse plus support incompetence, so both the people that exploited it and support that were clueless of the implications share the faults.

Hi everyone, we'd like to share an update.

We will soon be deploying a hotfix which is intended to resolve the issue which caused us to temporarily disable the event. We expect this hotfix to deploy at approximately 12pm PT. During this time, players will not be able to login to either game, however any Aion Classic players currently online will be able to continue playing.

In addition, please note that we have updated our article to remove a section which stated additional bonus rewards would be issued for certain quantities of "contracts used". This section was mistakenly included and we regret the error. (this promotion will continue as originally stated)

Also, in accordance with the feedback we've seen around Titan Coins, we will be replacing them within the rewards with Experience Marks.

Finally, due to an issue with the wrong item being included in the Gourmet Candy Galaxy Bundle, all transformations obtained by using the "Harvest Revel Transformation Contract Selection Box (4 types)" will be removed from all players. Players will be appropriately compensated.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

what kind of compensation will be applied? giving back the gourmet candy galaxy bundle?

so suspicious that ncsfot CAN remove transformations from players but NEVER did it when players abused stormwing event getting ultra hard to farm apostles and pixel hanbok event that also gives powerful collections. also they ever state they cannot remove xforms using restoration tokens due to game mechanics, eh?

Only affects players who used the "Harvest Revel Transformation Contract Selection Box (4 types)" this year. It's a different item than what was available last year, and it is not the same item as the one obtained after using a key on the "Locked Harvest Revel Transformation Contract Selection Box".

So no players from last year will be affected, and no players who purchased the BCM contract will be affected.

why NCsoft did nothing when players got lots of Azphel and Ariel contracts that are WAY more valuable and hard to get than Halloween Xforms due to the powerful collections they unlock?

People who already received titan coins will be compensated with Experience Marks?

 

Also, while you guys are at it, please improve the rewards. Those improvements in AriaTheMelodious's thread will not hurt the company's profit in any way.

I agree, we should be compensated for that too!

That error is blatant false advertisement when you are selling 100s of contracts for exactly that reason. I'm guessing no refunds will be issued to players that bought contracts which are now useless because of this "error"? This is just insane.

Um, what?  There are folks who already spent the ncoin to buy 5x 100 contract bundles to ensure they'd be able to complete the set.  They were depending on this information to be accurate when they made their purchase.  Are you going to refund their 32,000 ncoin too?  Wouldn't it simply to be easier to follow through on your promise and deliver the rewards that were listed in the event page for the last 3 days?

Ah but when people abused the hell out of the stormwing event getting all the apostles that are impossible to obtain another way ncsoft was like

"Yeah we can't do anything about that, we're very sorry, those people get to keep their apostles and you all have to be without collections, thank you good luck daevas!"

NCWest be like "Ope, free players that don't spend $$$ on BCM got collections for +150 attack stat. That hurts our pocketbooks, screw what the community says."

What a hypocritical game publisher. Utter cash grab.

Xforms can be removed/reverted for this, but when SW and Pixels happened..you could not? Nor can users use a restore token on combined xforms

So, what I gather from this is. NCwest is quick to fix something when it effects potential cash, but not when it's free stuff.  (SW event and pixel events)

lol, flipflop decisions
