Gnome resurrection

This kind of events is quite common in online games or at least the few that I played.

The fact that we can find Gnome aside Vault Event is a bonus. But maybe devs should remove it… so nobody could be disappointed.

you are funny lol did you do the brainstorm with them??? how do you know it’s a bonus? did they call you to say that was their plan?

No need to brainstorm with anyone when they took the idea from another game.

You really believe that devs put Gnome so players will have to do 500+ explore battles to see one of them?

But I’m not their lawyer, I just give my point of view and could be completely wrong about their thoughts :wink: .

No vault key…

Why giving ressources when you can give a Vault key so players can try the Vault + get ressources?

I personally wasn’t upset by situation yesterday. I actually liked the idea of the spawn being super rare and always having a decent loot table. I know you can’t please everyone, but I think 1 gnome per 30 battles is a bit overkill for a normal spawn rate. I would be more excited for gnome week if they were normally quite rare.

I snipped out some of my points here because have probably been addressed. I’ll leave the others in though.

I hope the event still isnt 10 times as profitable. I made a reply in the other thread. Thats basically my main concern now. Overvaluing time during a short period can be very damaging, especially if it turns out that a dedicated player over a long weekend can get about 100 gems an hour as was being reported with initial drops, and play about 8 hours a day over 3 days, resulting in more gems than every guild task that entire month combined (and presumably way more than normal gnome drops would give you in the same amount of play). That might, in turn, cause a knee jerk reaction from the devs (or more likely probably the publisher) to nerf overall gains again.

Each downward adjustment of the economy ironically actually stagnates it more and more for the existing playerbase by forcing people into hoarding and stringent use, by proxy giving even the average player bloated stashes and making the cash shop items look like garbage by comparison because troops still cost the same or increasing amounts to unlock as the drop pools for troops continue to bloat (buy 1500 gems? for $100? why? I just spent 15k and didn’t get my mythic, etc.). If gnomes actually offer a drip feed and not a flood centered around a very specific time period, that will actually help the economy more than hurt it by possibly incentivizing spending more again (I can always get x back, rather than I have to have x at this point in time or I’m going to miss y.) They just can’t give too many. Also, they need other ways to spend gems that people will actually use, which will be difficult after conditioning everyone for so long with the exclusive mythic to either have enough gems on VIP chests or be prepared to overpay and wait an arbitrary amount of time with soulforge while being saddled with an additional cost. The current economy is so strangled that people with thousands (or tens of thousands) of gems get upset about accidentally clicking refresh in PvP and feel 50 gems to change class is too restrictive.

I really should finish my posts in one sitting… Or at least close the tabs if the issue moved on before I could finish the post…
