Can we please get some outfit bags that arent a percentage chanced gachupon? I dont really care much for gachupons all that much, Not for or against them- How ever... All the new outfits have been inside it and are rare. So please- I dont even care if its the old outfits, but can we start getting them again? Hell, even for the pets, that would be great, since not even new pets are being sold unless its a gachupon.

Or I dont know- Make it so one box drops more then 1-3 items, Or say - Oh you open one box, you get something common,something rare, and something very rare? Since you can go threw nearly 100 of those box's and not get anything thats actually new.

:/ Im getting to the point to where i no longer want to touch the gachupons, im just waiting for players to sell the items i want from the gachupons because honestly they are becoming a "bit" of a waste of money..

    I've been sick of gacha and it's been just about nonstop all through last year.

    I too would love if the virtual slot machine had a fixed payout you could selectively buy and gave me multiple spins per token.

    But realistically, Nexon is a for profit corporation and as such has to make a profit, and players being (((PAYERS))) wanting to be the first to have the latest wing/tail/halo/dress (hopefully) keeps their employees (that are left) paid. As nice as it would be if gachas gave good items at an even semi decent rate, or we actually got outfit bags again, it's more cash to just keep lowering the rates on the new items so those payers will keep buying more gacha with 95% filler items you can get from npcs.

    Looking at it from the other side though can you blame them? If people will keep giving you money for something why would you charge them less or give them more for what they pay? Especially when you have expenses to keep the service afloat in the first place, capitalism in action. Not trying to be pessimistic or anything just looking at it like any corporation with share holders to answer to would.

    >.> I understand why they are doing it, but it wouldnt hurt them to offer gachupons and outfit bags/pets at the same time-
    To be honest at the rate they are going how ever, they may end up doing what another game i played that was lowing players, They started making everything in gachupons timed so we had to pay real money to not only get the gachupons but then pay to make that item you wanted permanent... with only a 10% chance to get something not timed.

    :x Nexon is able to still make money and do the bags/pets, Or like i said they could change up the gachupons so we actually get something worth our money.

    If anything, they should have gachapons and outfit bags selling at the same time. Maybe throw in pet sales too.
    More money for them.

    I like the idea of having a "Weekly Throwback Gacha". Selling 5 or so outfits in a box that are from ages ago.

    Bellfox, Chang'e, etc.

    I agree with that, like putting old outfits from rb cards, shopping bags, or even gachapon outfits that are old but people would still want and would actually wear (it's ridiculous to see them 40m+ sometimes)

    I know some mindset of fashionogis will be like, "Ew, now it's too common and makes it not rare anymore. They should only be gachapon only" I honestly don't care, I rather see them on many people vs only 5 people who'll probably throw it in the dressing room and not wear it anymore nor sell it after gacha. Plus, lowers the price and makes it affordable to everyone

    mabi has already done something similar to that. the original tail gacha was like that with timed tails and a very low chance of getting a permanent tail or the coupon to make it permanent. the wishbone items you could earn to get a tail gacha box was just a mean taunt to get players hopes up and make them want it more since it was near impossible to get enough wishbones for. that gacha was one of the worst ever. luckily now all new tails are permanent but you still have to pay for the style tab just to equip a tail and temporary tails 4k NX for a 90 day coupon or 250k to 500k gold to get a 90 day coupon from another player plus another 50k to 100k gold to dye your tail if you like it a certain color. the 90 day tail coupon does not extend the time on your tail it simply replaces your tail with another tail in a random color that is the same type and lasts for 90 days.

    I understand if this is confusing but, what about having the same outfit in both gachapon and in outfit bags. Only difference between these would that gachapon would have the idle (if there is one) and maybe a set bonus??? While the Outfit Box just had the idle :)
