You are here:
< Back

Time Lord Wyrom puts out a little more information about the upcoming May Event, Commencement of Coraesine Forest, and assures everyone everything there will be a very high-end service, like it has historically been. No shops, no small stuff. Bring all your silvers and your best gear for a very rare opportunity. Tentative dates: May 11-13.

That’s because it’s not a paid event.

This event will have no SimuCoin requirements to participate. It will, however, be one of the most expensive silver events we’ve ever offered in the last ten years. You will need a paid subscription to enter the area, but that’s it.

To build inventory for an auction, we need around 12 to 18 months lead time. It’s not something on the 2018 agenda.

So it’s only for people who are rich in-game, because they’re the only ones who can afford expensive silver events. I’m sorry about that. I was looking forward to it.

It could be something like duskruin though. Where there are super high end things to buy and then less high end things to buy. It could be shops, an auction, or both. It’s 12-18 months out so anything can happen. Perhaps you could even make suggestions and with that kind of lead time they could be put in. It would seem silly to me not to include some mid ranged items for people not on the hundred million silver side of things.

I think the point is, we have no idea what will be offered nor any idea of the cost other than ‘the most expensive event in 10 years’. Anything beyond that is speculation.

And yet still, sight unseen, people are condemning the event and claiming they wont enjoy it.

We dont even know the prices! Or whats offered!!

I’ve not given up hope yet!

I’m hoping for nice little things that are affordable to the not-wealthy, in addition to the high-end stuff that will make the event legendary!

Trickle down man. Even if they dont offer that, some people who are going for the high-end stuff will be motivated to sell “nice little things” to help build up their coffers going into the event.

Just as a thought, considering the prices otherwise, if there were multiple things that cost a million silvers, that alone would put it near or in the most expensive category since usually silver costs are pretty cheap. I bet there will be plenty of fancy stuff for non-back breaking prices. Of course, some will, which is why I plan to get a bunch of silvers by then if Whick doesn’t steal all my hunting plans.

This event will not have a focus on shopping. In fact, there will be little to no shops. It will be a high-end service event, just like it always has. If you want to burn a service on 4x gear, feel free, but keep in mind, we offer many low-end to middle-end events for the majority of players. We rarely have events that service high-end gear outside of events like Duskruin.

As someone who will probably NOT benefit from this event, since I do not have a lot of liquidity in my assets (i.e. like almost no silver), I am GLAD they are doing a High-End event.

One a year isnt too much to ask, and there are plenty of other services throughout the year I can get.

That said, I have found a place that gives good silver…so Ima hunt the crap out of it from now till May…so maybe! Possibly!

“Trickle down man.” — GilchristR

Preach it, man!

I used to love when the pre-announced Auctions and for-bid ticket events got posted, because everyone and their brother started posting sales/auctions on the boards (or PlayerCorner, or whatever) about all of the old stuff that they are now willing to part with.
And so I would come into possession of <Auction Item X After Which I Have Lusted For Three Years>, and now be able to use it, just three years later.
Usually for a substantial break in price over what the poor sap was asking for just a few months ago, when s/he had no use–at that time–for silvers, but now suddenly does.

But signally NOT useless to those people complaining about the worthlessness of silver, because they’re sitting on ‘lebenty squajillion of them.

Sssooo… making silver, NOT useless, correct?

And… addressing the complaints from people about the “money suck” via SimuCoin-upgrades-only, correct?

.

But–and perhaps, most important of all–still providing <something happening in-game> about which people can complain, correct?

It’s so funny…I don’t think Simu can do anything without someone making a catty, condemning comment. But MANY MANY people have been begging for a way to suck silver from the game-to restore a sense of a working economy so silvers mean something.

I’m really happy they have come up with a way to do this…”we” (as the affected player base) have been fighting against Simu’s need to show a profit tide (hence all the pay events every other month). I recognize that need-but for the health of the game, it can’t crowd everything else out. The fact that Wyrom’s team found a way to convince management to let them suck silvers up is wonderful. And I’m speaking as someone who might well not have enough silvers for the high end services either that I’d otherwise love to get. It’s still great for the game (in my view).

Subj: Re: Hype?

I’m holding onto one of the chainspears, I think another one was sold or at least put up for sale in the last year. They are under rated, except against non corp or other critters where the head won’t stick in’em .. then the pull mechanic is horrible. Otherwise, quite fun and useful when you need a knockdown. They are also quite good in melee mode. Overall they are neck and neck with bando’s depending on the situation.

I do think the code needs to be looked at for ensorcel compatibility in hurling mode, less of a pull rt or an auto pull when the head doesn’t stick, and should give some ds when in thrown form.
