Hello Community, this is Blissfulkill here, and I am here to rant about the wing boxes. Specifically, what this gacha continues to do from previous attempts. The RNG is not what I am complaining about, but the new wings themselves. In details, I am upset about
-All the "new" wings are hasty recolors of previously existing wings.
-These wings were not able to be custom dyed in the first place, but are instead, they are their own separate items.
Just...why? We had new wings like Bone Blade and Trifold that are enough to justify their separate existence, but most wings at this point are lazy recolors, for something that should be custom dyed in the first place, like virtually every other fashion item. This stimulates profits for Nexon, by allowing the existence of more gachas, while screwing the playerbase over. I mean, look at this.
Virtually everything is underlined. Two things. First off, there is a mix and match here, Where there are Pewter Cutieflies, there are also Pewter Butterflies, which basically states "same wings as before, but different color for each individual style"
So if you have any doubts that "sunset" wings or others are not recolors, they are. An overwhelming amount of the new wings that actually dropped, are recolors.
This is a continued thorn to customization because we need more gachas, more often, with new prizes, and I do not think that should be how it is. This is just a lazy rehash, and as long as it continues, we will most likely get new wings that we will not be able to custom dye, but have to buy a separate version altogether in a new gacha with nothing to offer.
This is pretty terrible, considering that with new content they are restricting options that were previously available to the player for direct purchase or otherwise. Wig slots? Oh who needs those, Nexon will just unleash customization options as coupons strictly found in the gacha, despite this providing no benefit to the playerbase but plenty for Nexon. At best, only the wealthy or lucky will not experience a real change, but even then, they may want to change hairstyles that would forever rid them of their 80 million gold Ponytail. Oh, and limited duration tails, of course!
Separating wings into recolors is crapping on previous freedoms, and this angers me.
One of the problem is RNG, sure, but the fact that this gacha exists to profit Nexon while options that would have been more beneficial to the playerbase's wallets existed but were not taken. In any case, why do we want recolors when this is what we are advocating with out money? More and more restrictions?
A great game doesn't necessarily have to be unprofitable, nor does being greedy guarantee profit.
Just make wings able to be customed dyed.
