theCypher.9406 Posted September 7, 2021 Share Posted September 7, 2021 (edited) Hey everyone, i would like to know what you think about this: I usually do every festival i can get hold of as far as i have the time to do so. In general, most festivals are a welcomed variety to my daily/weekly fracs, raids and so on. With a few exceptions: wintersday and halloween for farming and festival of the four winds for spending my gold on those supply boxes. Now i know that the boxes are mostly there because Anet needs some ways to get money out of the economy to keep it more stable. The past years this worked quite well as far as i could observe it. I spend a lot of gold at the boxes too, just for fun even though i knew i might not get anything out of it. But: it was like investing ~7-8s and a box was worth ~4s. So i usually ended up with spending around 650g and got like 250g back. The price i paid for trying to get an infusion 🙂 Here we are: Anet changed the prices AND the loot table. So we have 3 more items in "super rare" which i find ugly (personal view) but they are also not worth that much and just decrease the chance of the other ones i would like to have. In addition the boxes went up to around 21s and more and are now even less worth (~3s). All according to the wiki calculations. I know its more a gamble and one should not brag much about it since you know what you are up to. But i stopped buying any boxes now because even if it is gambling, it just feels like being scammed or throwing away money out of the window for nothing and the chances being a joke in relation to the price i would pay. I feel like Anet shot themselfs. If people dont buy those boxes anymore it wont even have a positive effect.... Is it just my personal view and whining? 😉 How do you feel about that? Do you still buy the boxes for fun and trying? 🙂 Greetings Edited September 7, 2021 by theCypher.9406 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
