Clickbait jewellery event all the way :D


Recommended Posts

Just want to add my 2 cents about this event, coming from a guy that went through 400 jewellery chests and 200 good fortune chests. 

As the title states, this event was a clickbait tactic all the way. 

We are at a point in the game where the vast majority should have at least Grater's lv1 giving how hard mobs are and how old the game is. 

But half the server don't even have lv.5 jewels yet and then they give us an event where it costs an arm and a leg to make lv.5 jewels(if you are extremely lucky) and it costs the rest of your remaining limbs to make a brooch. A brooch lv.2 that is so expensive you should rather save and buy a God Jewel instead.

 

Nc, why would you price a brooch at lv2 so high and lv3 and lv4 after that a lower price? Why don't do it the other way around as you did with the agathion bracelets so people can work their way up and feel like they actually managed to get something worth their while after this event and leave with an upgrade? 

And why would you make boxing a jewel so expensive that is actually pointless to even have it as an option because nobody in his right mind will pay 10x times the price of a level 3 jewel to box it up?

Or is half of your staff on furlough and you let the intern plan this event out for you? My grandma that never touched a computer could have come up with a better mechanism to benefit both the player and the company.

ppl do realize that a successful compound of lvl 4 with another lvl 4 is 7% success rate?  This is the same success as making an epic tralisman from 2x 7 signs.  gem energy with lvl 4 is 4% success to lvl 5.

 

with the current price model for chests, and the rate lvl 1's are given form the cooler lvl 1-5 chests, its clear ncsoft has no clue who their audience is with la vies.

 

players either need to get past the lvl 4 basic gem they already have had since the last multiple la vie events or they already have 6 of 6 greater jewels.  500+ usd for a middle grade brooch upgrade is also insane, thats the same cost when it was available originally.  440 gem powders for a mid tier upgrade is a joke.  expecially since half of this event is based around augmenting your brooch, of which no one is doing bc, well, covid and 500+ usd to make the upgrade.

 

i wanted this event bad.  i would have spent hard to make all lvl 5's and greaters.  but the cost is absurd compared to what this event should be.  ncsoft clearly wants ppl to stay without greaters for the time being.  im not dumping more, its a waste.  the random lvl 5 boxes form other events are the way we have to upgrade la vies now, thats clear.

I am writing here for years now about this promo, but most people, first buy spend money and fail badly, get nothing from the boxes and feel cheated.

This is a bad promo guys, price is insane, chance to get a good item is close to 0%, close to 0% remember it.

All mechanics, where you use your items, while trying to make a new one or ugrade SUX … and ofc when we have promos x10 to x100times more expensive than other servers .. pure madness... 

In other official servers you can get 6 greater jewels, what you rly need for 200b more or less .. here on Naia Greater Ruby is 250b+ no need to comment anymore rly.

I am very happy with my free lvl 3 jewles I got from the exalted quest, I am wearing them proudly  :) 

gl in playing the casino, have fun and brake your nerves 

 

PS: in other regions people play with superior jewels and their boxed support characters have better gear than 90% of the DD's on naia/chronos especially on Korean servers

What a joke this game has become, and what a joke we have allowed ourselves to be at our own expense.

I feel ashamed of how much I love Lineage 2 since I was a child and these corporate leeches have sucked the life out of its fanbase communities. 

What I am baffled about is how any business leader out there would see their numbers diminished to this extent and would see their forums flooded with complains and still chose to do nothing, still chose to keep to the same toxic business model. 

I am getting to the conclusion that they are seeking to end this in the coming years and as they are coming of the top of the mountain they are trying to make as much money as they can and we are all just wasting out times playing this game, which will be dead in a couple of years anyway.

People been claiming doom and gloom on server closures forever. I don't expect it. There are tax perks to having this exist, even if not turning a profit.

 

I do think this la vie event will massively underperform revenue wise compared to other main events, mainly because of the cost structure and current state of the game.

the stupid grinder is included so we can buy the pack and crush 95% of the level 1's, problem is the pack is way to expensive making the powders way too expensive, again, your decimal point is in the wrong place!  more people would buy, more people smile because they see an actual upgrade after long waits and a few NEW actual level 5's might hit the market.  Who is this event aimed for, the wales aren't buying level 3-4's

Well everything is automated, and the changes are copy pasted now from Korea to the West, thats why they made these changes and put us all in the same bubble, even if we were not at the same level. 

So in truth there are probably no loses with any event that takes place in the West. 

But they could on the other hand double if not triple their profits each year by addressing someone of the issues, some of the basic issues like giving us more exp, if not as a base increase than at least in the form of constant exp events.

I for one would spend a good portion of money in game if I knew I could exp within reason through to 115 by early 2021, a level mark where we should all be at right now anyway.

I can`t do nothing but agree... I was actually expecting this event (Sell promo) i was ready to spend a lot of money to upgrade my jewel game... But it was too expensive for what you could get... The event when you could get random lvl 4 jewels was better than this and THIS was gonna be the jewel event... Too expensive and too little reward and to be honest I spent 0 usd and 0 adena in this event, not even prestige pack... To my eyes and to most ppl i know this was a fail event srry
