  • Steampunk is going to be...

    IANAL, but the laws being passed about gambling, there's going to be a loophole somewhere or a slight change so it's the same thing just a different flavour.

    The UK Gambling Commission already determined loot boxes don't meet the criteria to be considered gambling because "the prizes unlocked in loot boxes are usable only in the games in which they're won, and can't be cashed-out". So, they're probably pretty much washing their hands of it unless loot boxes cross a specific fine line.

    And the ESRB already weighed in on it with more or less the same mindset:
    "While there's an element of chance in these mechanics, the player is always guaranteed to receive in-game content (even if the player unfortunately receives something they don't want). We think of it as a similar principle to collectible card games: Sometimes you'll open a pack and get a brand new holographic card you've had your eye on for a while. But other times you'll end up with a pack of cards you already have."

    EDIT: Forgot the bit where some Hawaii lawmaker wanted to do something about loot boxes, but it was just about restricting the sale of loot boxes to people under 21, not about banning their sale all together.

  • Holiday Art Contest [DISCUSSION]

    secondly, gachas? really. Might just be me but, thats kind of a strange prize to receive for winning a contest. afterall the Gachas give no guarantee that you get anything good. yet people in NA can win really cool and even exclusive things!

    atleast your trying to make an effort for global players but i still find it extreemely unfair. atleast NA players are guaranteed something spiffy, global people have a few tickets to gamble for free and likely not get anything worth their effort of winning....

    They give out gacha as a contest prize all the time. If someone doesn't think it's worth the effort, they won't bother. Simple as that. Not everybody thinks the NA exclusive prizes are all that cool or worth the effort, either.

    Still don't think NA users should be allowed to enter the same picture twice, tho. That's the only thing I'd find unfair, personally.

    I personally will go with a different piece, I feel like it'll be safer that way? but idk how they are about that sort of thing.
    I agree. Just figured clarification would be nice. :)

    I don't really understand how you all don't see it as whining on a forum, because you all come here saying the exact same thing every single time anything is released in a gacha and it's obviously not working because they haven't even so much as extended the time between gacha releases. Try complaining directly to KR Nexon, maybe?

    Or you know, quit 'til they give you what you want or move on with your life. There are better alternatives and the fact that you're still playing is still supporting the company whether you spend money or not, because you spend in-game money on stuff other people spend real money to get, which just encourages them to spend more money, even if you're not.

    So, yeah.

  • what would have made mmo junkie crossover better

    An actual event, with creative thought and effort put into it.

    There's no actual event because there's nothing else to make an event of.

    A hot time homestead ladder w/tree would've been cool, tho.
