    • [10/4–4/6] Challenge of the Week – Can Nostale make a good event?

      Hello!!!

      Sorry for the title but I had to do it :whistling:

      I open this topic to talk about the new event: [10/4–4/6] Challenge of the Week – Are You Marriage Material Yet?

      The next points are just my opinion, so if you don't agree with me it would be a pleasure to read your point of view:

      1) Rewards:

      >87% Marriage Material --> 1x Wedding Costume Specialist Card
      Why Nostale waste time making this kind of Sp's instead of work on SP 3 from Martial Artist?

      >100% Marriage Material --> Enjoy a round-the-world trip for 2 on a luxury airship of your choice!
      WTF? The "best" reward is...? Hmm maybe the reward for surpassing ALL the quests is a mount? No thanks, I don't need more mounts.

      >Other rewards: Nothing relevant.

      2) Challenges:

      At the moment we only know 2 quests but I can imagine that all of them will be like these... boring and worthless:

      1: Collect 10,000, 50,000 or 200,000 reputation points. | 10.04.2019 00:00:00 - 23.04.2019 23:59:59 (CEST)
      2: Hatch 5, 10 or 15 Mysterious Eggs during the Easter Event. | 10.04.2019 00:00:00 - 23.04.2019 23:59:59 (CEST)

      3) My opinion:

      Another event that I'm not going to do, but nice try. The only positive point I find with this kind of "new content" is that Nostale is not dead yet, so I can keep playing and maybe... JUST MAYBE... they decide to make a new act or create new L-A-T-E G-A-M-E content.
      The main difference between PvE and PvP player is that the first one fights vs himself to achieve his best version of himself while the second one just wanna be better than others.
    • I dunno about the speed and looks of this new mount, but having a limited mount could be worth the quests.
      I am wondering what the skills are from the wedding sp, but yea it seems a bit weird.

      I am having permanent backpack and knapsack, so i dont need the temporary items.

      The other rewards are just a fill up % for the event, i think that is fine.

      It would be nice to have a remember pop up for this event (like a family hint). (I am a person who forgets to do these kind of events as i dont get remembered of it xD)

      Last time there were events with limited pets, those pets were sold for over 25m. So i think its worth to spend your time for these items.

      edit: hatching 15 mysterious eggs is a bit too much i think xD, better lower it to 5 or something.

      I imagine that the 100% final reward is a mount because of what I've read from Nostale's post. Btw, if finally is a mount and it's "enough good", trust me when I say that you would be able to afford a similar one (or better) - with maybe different style - by Nosmall.

      A bit much but makes people go spam chicken queen for R6 eggs and growth fruits and maybe put more of the new pets around so ok move.

      But to be honest instead of overlapping 2 events/ working on 2 events at the same time I would much rather game team focus on either making one decent event (aka make sure content is balanced and playable) or fix game breaking stuff, more than new mounts or pets I think the game needs some optimization
    • 15 r6 egg is too much for a dead server.

      as everyone known we did 3 qfc on uk or maybe some more. at least i hosted 3 times and 1 win 2 fail if i am not wrong. After that no more qfc's. around 24 h need for hatch 1 egg without fruits. i have total 2 eggs from old years and 1 this year. i have 3 in total. but how i get other 12 and how i get enough time for hatch them. lets think about we did 12 raids and i get 12 egg in a row from chest. High probability can it be wrong but: i remember it takes 1 day to hatch whitout fruits. today 10th 12 from these eggs at 22th only 12 egg hatched still need 3 for gold and there is only 1 day. If everthing gones perfect. But as everyone know is game is not perfect as much this. These impossible quests why you release for a dead server?


      If there was active server , yes you can buy fruits from others etc also eggs too and hatch them it is ok. But we have unique 20-25 player at game. And it is hard to make them online same time and take them same raid for spam.

    • LOL that title.

      where does it say the 100% reward btw? can't see it in that news post. did they remove it or am i just blind?

      i participated in one those weekly challenges event before. i do think there needs to be better rewards for them in the middle considering how tedious some of the tasks are. and that's it's a long term event. for 2months of work.. these rewards are really abysmal.

      but yeah having a special, exclusive limited prize (even if it's useless in practicality) as the final prize is the best thing to have imo. it should be very rare because i assume very few people will manage to finish all quests. so the reward will have value because of that.

      Hahaha they edited the post. Maybe we are not the only server discussing about this rewards, and Nostale decided to put another reward for those crazy players who would obtain 100%.

      But originally, it was this:

      i see. looks like who ever was in charge for making the post. (it says "Mizu" but who is even that? well sum1 irrelevant so it dont matter) anyway, i guess they were told the last reward is a trip around the world in an airship as a joke.. and they are so dense they actually put it there.. because it says "1x Ahh... yeah... I knew... it was just a joke.>= 100%" now on the site where u check your points, so that's what i think happened.

    • Yes the last part with 100% was indeed meant as a joke as a honeymoon as part of the "wedding story." There are only 98 points to gain, but since it wasn´t recognized as a joke and players assumed it´s a mount we removed it.

      We wish you loads of fun with this event and of course appreciate your feedback!

      P.S.: The wedding SP does not replace SP3 of the Martial Artist, this is still being worked on. :)

      Don't you consider that "maybe" this event has a bad balance between time-invested vs potential-rewards?

      I mean... it is well known that most of the active players of Nostale are high-lvl and late-game (pvp) oriented...

      How it is supposed that this kind of events would motivate/entretain us?

      I know this last part would be off-topic but: Is Nostale working on a rework of act 6 or on a new expansion like 6.3 / 7.1 with any zone "worth" to make gold or to increase your level vs water-light moobs? (because current maps with these elements are... well they are empty for some obvious reasons xD)

      Thanks for your feedback and welcome to the community :D

      ok but we need to know, did the person who wrote the news thing.. did they also think this was legit or did they know it was a joke from the start?

      They also intended it as a joke, it was the players who did not catch the joke and imagined rewards out of it.

      Don't blame the players again. If we complete something perfectly we want and expect a reward. You give us the honeymoon line and what do you expect from us. Can't blame us for thinking we're actually gonna get rewarded for hard work, or maybe you can looking at where gameforge is going lately. How do you even make a 'contest' that is not intended to be fully completed

      ah shoot, i thought that would be the case because of the phrasing of the edit, and i had bunch of ideas to meme this. oh well, whatever. also in defense of players -who did not catch the joke-, we aren't really used to getting humor from a news post you know.. although i do appreciate that a joke attempt was being made.. it really wasn't the right place for it. and it's pretty normal for players to interpret things as it's a common theme here to have serious but ambiguous stuff in announcements, descriptions..etc.

      edit: also yeah the rewards are really bad, i bet that literally 0 people will go to 98% with the current rewards.

      Nobody is blaming anyone chill out with this please, every line we say is taken as we blame someone for some reason. I was simply answering to Gandalof because he thought it was Mizu person who didn't catch the joke, so I said who was it that didn't catch the joke. I am not blaming anyone.

      Agreed, and I guess this is why the post was edited, not the right place to make a joke on xD
