    I just wish they would be more transparent about it and post the percentages. Then everyone will know exactly what to expect when they make a purchase. I've played other games with similar chests, but they posted all of the percentages along with the items.

    That's the pointof the exercise. There are dozens of mechanics in place in this game to coerce a player into spending much more money than she/he wants to spend. Google "gamasutra Top F2P Monetization Tricks" and "Gamasutra monetizing children" (no links allowed) for some very interesting stuff about that. Hiding the true value of things, and appealing to gambling natures, are some of the most powerful mechanics of this.

    So, my last post saying that I'll uninstall the game got censored. Nice.

    Good bye, everybody, until this one is deleted too. This is a casino that bloats "money, money, money" and no longer a game.

    @Fox said in Survival dungeons and game crashes/disconnects:

    Is there any other game mode you would feel that could replace survival dungeons in events like Mishka or Stormbeared? [...]
    Let me sleep on this. Maybe I'll come up with something better 🙂

    The thing is, the game modes that are challenging are team wars, PvP, survival dungeons. Survival dungeons with monster restrictions are an eternal source of frustration (I have enough monsters to finish the normal ones of course), so they need to be fixed. Team wars and PvP can't be easily translated into a different game modes.

    I have a number of ideas how to create more interesting ways to earn those cells (than mazes and islands), but all require a healthy amount of coding. Changing survival dungeons that monsters are out only for some time (say 6h) may be the one that is easiest to implement, however, the crash issue would still persist.

    For anyone that has bought these, I'd like to hear your input on the chances of getting a rune higher than VII.
    Has anyone gotten an X from these, and if so, how many did it take?

    It's a trap.

    Chests give almost every time the weakest reward. So you're getting a level 7 rune for 72% of an Atum/Thetys. I know what I prefer there, and it's no contest.

    Why do we have to do such stupid calculations? Because game devs introduce currencies to hide the true cost/value of things, and to make us spend more in the end.

    Thing we sometimes lose sight of is that we play for fun.

    Sure. The event stopped being fun when 12 of my best monsters were suddenly gone due to that bug that has been around for 2 months, and when I realized that our opponent had twice the MP, and thus we had no chance.

    Ugh, more chests.

    I guess everyone (but me) loves the chests since they are spreading.

    Everyone in the game industry, as they generate such lovely rewards.
    Time to find a new game I think. Just a year ago this was a game, not a casino.

    Bo tai, the best ever support, healer ever.

    I'd figure the OP has found a support monster during the last 9 months. 🙂

    Well, now we know. I had 2 rune chests and 2 level V runes.
    Surprised? No. Disappointed? Hell yes.

    Rewards were basically free though so that's all fine.

    IDK. I don't place money value on time spent, but it's not as if the rewards came as "side effect" to normal gameplay (like mazes, islands etc.). And if you spend several hours on an event, discuss strategies with your team, then the reward should reflect that.
