  • Re: December Stocking Drops

    @Zerin, those help files say one thing but we all know they don't always mean what they say. The wheel help file says I can get a whole map from spinning, but I can only get fragments.

    And @Oystir, I've been following the news on that and quite frankly, I'd love to see it being banned because games like this really trigger an addict like me and I have no doubt it triggers other people too that don't even know they are prone to developing a gambling addiction.

    It's all fun and games when we gamble here and we joke and laugh at each other when we pull ultra **** prizes, but these types of addiction and this gambling translates to the real world eventually.

    From one addict to another, if you've been on a bender for several months, Imperian's promo system isn't the problem you're having.
    No ****, Sherlock. If you think I am blaming an addiction I've been struggling with pretty much my entire life on IRE promos, then I don't think we should continue this conversation because you don't understand my sentiments at all.

    You're out of your mind if you don't these gaming companies prey on people with these type of 'loot' box promotions. Better yet, we constantly talk about how there is this giant buy-in to be a part of PK here, which is the main thing all of these games push, Imperian being a 'conflict driven' game. The most cost effective way to do so currently is to go the loot box/promo buy-in route and not straight credits. It's a FTP game but very clearly P2W.

    And your 'dolphin-level' microtransactions won't work here in a game that isn't visual. No one gives two craps about familiars or pets. Yeah, I'll take them as a consolation prize because I can trade them in for 1 credit since they usually come as added value items, but I'm not going to fork over $1-$5 for one because I have to collect them all.

    Everything we want cosmetically can be gotten through trade skills more or less. And if you want a custom pet, you can buy one via tokens or credits. The cosmetic angle really can't be used on an all text-based game. Maybe QoL items, but frankly they make more money when you have to RNG to get the item you want versus letting you buy it outright.
