How is the gacha this time?
I've noticed the same thing. Certain outfits like the Chilling Urban have been way too common from this gacha. Meanwhile things like the Eluned Afternoon Tea Dress (M) or worse yet the Eluned Afternoon Tea Wig (M) without the bonnet have been hard as heck to find anyone selling. Honestly it would be nicer if the various new outfits had more equal rates instead of just select ones being so beyond obscenely hard to get even with spending literally hundreds of thousands of dollars on the gacha.
Though the worst part of all is how the gacha just primarily gives a load of junk nobody even cares about or wants anymore. It's the main reason I stopped bothering with buying gachas. Got sick of just getting worthless garbage almost all the time even with spending hundreds of dollars on the gacha.
I expected the Eluned Tea Party/Mortello outfits to be as common as the previous batch, but they are extremely rare from what I've seen. You can also tell just how low the rates are when the more "common" bloom wings are nowhere to be found. It's a lot worse than the tail and recent beauty coupon gacha.
I supported Nexon this time around and numerous times before, but it's tiring to "support" a company that blatantly ignores its playerbase with rates like these. They're getting worse with each gacha because they're struggling even more to be profitable. This isn't how a company makes money. You need to give players an incentive to buy gacha. Their idea of it is having you pay $15 for a Hamlet 2nd coupon and a Charging Strike training potion.
I don't believe much will change on their end, though. The bulk of gacha sales comes from the same people who quit, come back every time a new one drops, spend hundreds, then leave again. Hopefully more people will gradually stop spending altogether. That way, Nexon has to take a look at their low sales to understand the problem. Reading our feedback every patch surely doesn't work.
TL;DR: Don't buy it. The rates are even more terrible than the beauty coupon and tail gachapon.
That's what I am saying, just stop buying. I won't implore you, it's just a suggestion to bring change.
Seems like we might not even get to see one on our server. Given that a lot of people already have all the other far more common stuff from the gacha by now. That and the fact that the rate of pulling that wig out of the gacha is quite clearly beyond abysmally low. Well that and since people are realizing how awful the rates for this gacha are more people might just stop rolling...
Implying that they ever do actually read any feedback from the NA server. Because it sure feels like they don't read feedback or care.
I recommend buying some pon or Ewcea orb instead. Ewcea orb never lets you down, especially because you can get dominion wings, and if not, angel wings or juicy enchant scrolls. Even if you get all those commerce guarentees, hey, at least you get exploration exp artifacts! Free AP! Then you can use that AP to train those skills you hate!
Very First Box: Tintable Blooming Wings Special Box
Very Last Box: Eluned Afternoon Tea Bonnet and Wig (M)
Everything else in-between was 2nd Titles, Training potions, or overall crap. The only other thing even worth note, was a -CP Boots with -CP Prefix and Suffix Enchants already on it, so while that was nice, the Wing Special Box was the only thing i got that made the $30 worth it to any degree.
~ an acquintance of my dropped 500$ yesterday hoping for wings, and got nothing but urban chilling, and a few metador/flameco shoes.
I'd reckon I've come across over people who spent 6000$ pooled together now, and STILL NO ELUNED TEA WIG!
And you know what's unfair to the max, the only way they can try to compensate is by adding these "New" items in another gach with better rates, which basically screws those of us who already bought gach over.
The Eluned Afternoon Tea Bonnet and Wig (M) you got is most likely very worth it even if you aren't interested in it or able to use it yourself. Given that it seems to be a pretty popular item right now along with the other Eluned Afternoon Tea stuff. So at the very least you could probably get a nice amount of gold from selling it. So overall I would say you got pretty lucky from only spending $30 on the gacha. Given many others spend a lot more and get just entirely worthless junk.
Of course this doesn't at all change the fact that the rates of this gacha are without a doubt absolutely god awful and not worth rolling on.
Those wings are also extremely rare and I haven't seen any pop up on my server yet. Casually shrugging at getting those two items in $30 is laughable because people have spent thousands without ever seeing them.
They may not be shrugging at them, especially when you just backed up their point that they are extremely rare. A trial that just ended with one result is not a sufficient number of trials.
I say may, as "pretty lucky" is subjective.
"Special" as in, you get the amusement of using an SAO themed item. I kept at least one of each for the sake of collecting. (Well, more because some silly part of me hopes housing or homesteads get a decent expansion someday that lets us decorate with items in our inventories, and they actually looked like SAO crystals when dropped...)
The fact was though that the *good* drops were frequent and numerous, and most had no trouble getting what they wanted out of it without spending an arm and a leg. That's why people liked it. That's why they still speak favorably of it.
This is how gachas *should* be. Instead of trying to go after the big whales who will eventually give up in frustration if they don't get what they want after $1000, they should be aiming at getting each player (of which there are thousands) to spend a bit. There's a lot of players who don't indulge in gacha because they figure they can just buy it from other players with gold. But the less people buy, the less there is to go around.
I think the big problem with this new gacha (and what I've noticed with a few other gachas) is the obsession with having a "jackpot" item for the whales to chase. If you think about it, this gacha isn't terrible. I always maintain that training potions are at the very least useful... far more useful than the junk NPC bought weapons we used to see as gacha filler. The drop rate on the eluned urban wear is downright fantastic, and the Shakespeare outfits are getting reintroduced for new players to enjoy (I still wear mine!). Problem is, they hold this ONE SHINY ITEM over players' heads as that impossible thing to get, hoping somebody gets tempted to spend thousands... I think they're just frustrating the whales they depend so heavily on, and satisfying the low-spenders too quickly. I wouldn't have minded getting a mortello wig or flamenco dress, but I wasn't about to withdraw from my savings over it. I got a good drop or two then I was done.
I noticed the same thing on the Argenta outfits/wigs. People are still trying to charge 50 mil for the WIG. Not only that, I still think the drop rates for the male outfit was way over the female. Despite this, the other gacha drops were profitable and decent.
Honestly, I think they'd make more money overall if they could get the people who avoid gachas because of this crap to indulge. And the only way they're going to do that is by giving decent odds to the "featured" item of an individual gacha.
At this point... why not make everything have the equal drop rate instead of making certain stuffs have stupidly rare drop rate like the Eluned Afternoon Tea stuffs for male, Eluned Mortello/Pitch Black stuffs for female, and all wings? That way buying the gachapons would actually be worthwhile and the items won't be rarer than others.
Pretty much... lmao. I don't think any people would have complaints if they directly sell the stuffs in cash shop for more NX like a whole set of specific outfit would probably be 8k to 12k while the tintable blooming/flowerless wings would maybe be 30k-40k NX...
Or like what I said in the previous post, make all items have an equal drop rate so no item is more common than other yet no item is rarer than other if you know what I mean? I don't think anyone would have a complaint with that as well.
Maybe I just got lucky this gacha round...
it is in the following quote
That is the reason pure, and simple. They do it cause people will keep feeding it. I wish they would put up the drop rate tables(as I think they are lower the Korea's). If they made it a fair drop rate, or as others have said put the stuff in outfit bags I figured it out you would need 1000+ players to buy $5 outfit bags to equal what maybe 10 people do per server. So in all truth there is absolutely no incentive for them to do it, and there is all the incentive to make the odds worst to skim more money off the few players who are addicted to gachas.
I've honestly gave up on the crapchas in the past 3 months I think I spent $3 total on them(outside that pet one last month as that was a decent deal)
There's been some horrible gachas, but c'mon. I've hardly seen any of the new items on Ruairi. You'd think being genderbender, they'd be pretty common..
To be honest, with all this "Stop supporting them" "Don't buy nx" etc etc. The only reason I do support them, is because I love playing Mabi. It might not "help" or "send a message to them" about certain things that we see needs fixing. But I will always support a game I love, good or bad. I've been playing Mabi since '11. Pretty sure I've spent an entire college tuition on Gacha.
Recently just sold the wings + 2 dyes (Used 3 of em) for 50m (o'u')b
