There is a raging error on the website right now that lists all but one crate package at $35, but even at the 1 crate price of $20.. you guys are out of your minds.
1. These fragments are old and recycled. There is nothing new there.
2. Why would we pay $20 for 5 fragment pieces of old and recycled items when we bought.. phylacteries at $5(on the expensive end, but still worth $5) a pop? Each phylactery had: gold, 1 fragment, either credits/tickets/or artifact?
You're asking way too much for way too little. 5 recycled and old fragment pieces != $20. The rare pieces from a promo way back when aren't even offered now, such as wings, transmute, veil, quicksilver armor/weapon.
What is the incentive in paying $20 for 5 fragment pieces that the market is flooded with? I personally myself have 250+ fragment pieces. And it isn't because I'm not trying to get rid of them, I actively try to sell them. Please see PROMO MARKET FRAGMENT and be amazed at the plethora that is on offer to the game already.
While $20 gets you 5 fragments, which each have a min. tradein value of 10 per fragment.. $20 gets you 50 credits on the website and with IRE Elite you'll get 5 extra and they'd be unbound, allowing you to wheel and deal.
I feel like not much thought was put into this promotion, considering we had a promotion in August that flooded the game with fragments(aka phylacteries). I honestly wouldn't be surprised if you guys see minimal to no biters this month, because this promo/deal is just awful beyond belief.
Moving on to stagnation..
It's Halloween. Why do we not have any events for Halloween? Why have we not had events for the past several months? I've spoken to a handful of players who log in every single day and we all share the same sentiment.. the game is stagnant and it isn't moving. Since I have came back in February, we've not had an event for ANY Holiday. The last one was Ironbeard giving out gifts during December.
Holidays are the best tie in for IG events that correlate with the RL in a fun way, WoW has these for example.. but we haven't this year at all. I know they've been done in the past, but why is this year so empty of events?
You say, "Oh crap."
You say, "My bottle is empty."
