Guardian's Gala Event FAIL

I've found a Cynabal skin. This post is beneath you, Arthur. Stealing wrecks is part of normal gameplay. So is racing people to clear out sites and finding SKINs, what are you complaining about that isn't a core factor of other PvE?

Kudos for you. I guess you can find them in-game - they just must be extremely rare.

I am currently away, traveling through time and will be returning last week.

Hey free skins you can sell on the market!

Basically. I keep hearing about the Blood Raider event (one I missed) and how awesome it was.


SKINs plus accelerators is always going to beat out just SKINs, but CCP seem to be rationing out accelerator handouts to around every 3-4 months or so. The last one was the freebies over the winter holiday so the next one should be around Easter, give or take.

Thinking about it I'll bet on something Guristas themed, since we should have the new Caldari ship models out at that point, and releasing new SKINs for them would be a good way to get people out and going pew.

I'm still hoping for a Gurista Easter Bunny event...

Are you sure you're not making a cultural assumption? Or perhaps trying to impose a hierarchical relationship that's not justified?

Everyone who has the right to post to this forum has the same right to an opinion as the most experienced, ISK-richest, or most spectacularly dishonest EVE player (a few examples of what "highest status" might be in EVE terms). It might not be fair (you'd expect CCP to prioritize the player with the largest number of paid subscriptions), but compared to the game itself it's good enough.

There's certainly no basis for filtering based on poster aggression or rudeness.

The frigates are strangely, ridiculously overpowered. And it's not like they have high transversal, they move around fairly slowly. I've tried missiles, blasters, several different drones... Actually, my Wasp IIs kill them the fastest, even faster than Berserker II.

Maybe they just have a hellacious tank...

The event is the same as the previous events which is fine, but without a valuable reward ... so this will be the first event I will miss (at least from the PvE part). Just collecting tears by sniping the skin is not enough, and the novelty of skin collections wears of after the Amarr event.

I'm my own NPC alt.

So you're saying you're enjoying the event? Because if you don't care one way or the other - you're just trolling.


Yes I am. Even when I get scooped. It's just another thing to do and brings me into contact with other players an yet another opportunity to compete or collaborate.

I have fun doing lots of different things in EVE, in Hisec, Null, Wormholes. I like pve and pvp. I don't limit myself to what someone else says is cool or important. I also don't judge what other people thin is fun.

If you don't like the event, that is a valid opinion, but that is "Your" opinion. no one is obligated to agree with you.

I will grant you that the competition aspect is probably the most enjoyable.

I hadn't bothered with it yet, learned the basics this morning and did some 14 sites in a Magus Most of those had other people in it but I ended up with 9 skins, with an average value of 10 mil each. Not amazing income but easy to do and quite enjoyable, the passive aggressive targeting by others is entertaining.

I had a similar experience when I sniped a Nyx SKIN, but you know what? I just chalked it up to the guy being frustrated and left the Nyx SKIN for him in a contract for 1000 ISK. He actually emailed me back to apologize - and that he couldn't believe I would do that for him. Turns out he'd had site after site sniped all evening and just lashed it - which I completely understand. He earned my respect by sending that email.

Sometimes the most rewarding experiences in this game have been when you've done what's least expected.

I dunno... maybe you should get out of The Forge and explore the other areas? Just a thought. Once you get more than six jumps from Jita or 4 jumps from Amarr, you get in to the real game and away from the noise that pollutes gamer souls.

Why is this always the first suggestions? Is it too hard to simply acknowledge that "well, yeah - maybe the event kind of sucks".

I'm just saying that there have certainly been better variants of these events, and that this one falls on the lower end of the spectrum. This is just my opinion - no one is under any obligation to agree or disagree. And if you're in the group that is enjoying the event, more power to you. o7

ok, 30 bucks for 235M in game item....(the pack with cynabal/dramiel/machariel)

but WHY?
do you think (ccp) that players are dumb enough to buy it?
seriously!

if it's not a fail, please explain me!
#35 - 2017-02-17 01:22:03 UTC
It's still 3 PLEX for $10 off.. the skins are a good deal because they basically come free with that.. What?

Oh I see what you mean. Yeah that's awful buy the 3 PLEX pack instead

They always want too much for their NEX or Aurum or whatever.

yeah, the angels skins where the only ones I really wanted from this event anyways. and getting 10 dollars off the plex was a good enough deal to be worth jumping on.

also means that I have little to no reason to actually run this event anymore except if i'm bored.

all in all not terribly impressed, was kinda fun for a few hours of diversion doing something a little different, but that was about it. if the drop rate of the drugs was increased that might be enough added motivation to get back out there, but after running 20 odd sites and not seeing anything there isn't much incentive left.

Nah, I don't disagree with this. As these events go this one seems to have about the least variety to it, and is very cookie cutter.

That said, I don't think it's a bad event or that they shouldn't have done it unless they could put more into it. Even if they added 3-4 more site setups or spawn configurations that'd get me about 2-3 more hours of interest out of it.

Also I love the idea of a sort of Gurista's easter event just for that pun... xD

Looks like they cut back the frequency of the events with the last patch, too.
