Black Padded Coat is a random chest!?!?

Recommended Posts

I am a little more than upset that the one costume I loved more than any in the store is now in a random locked loot chest! I would much rather pay right now. I feel like NCsoft was aware that this was a popular item in beta and now are taking advantage of that by making it BoP and only accessible through a system of luck and chance. I truly hate this! This is why I hate the NwO(And other mmos) system! I could end up paying upwards of 20 bucks now while all the other outfits in the hongmoon store are under 15 bucks. Why would NCsoft do this except, if not to exploit a popular outfit and make extra money?

 

I am mostly typing out loud with no filter at the moment as I am writing this up while mad...

 

We could at least make this sort of outfit able to trade so I could get the gold together and get it that way. This would also help promote player gold trading as to help fight gold spammers.

 

I will eventually buy 11 chests for 1599 NCcoin, spending 20 bucks to see if I can get it, but if it does not drop out of 11 I am DONE! Please NCsoft just make all outfits accessible through cash payment. FORGET RANDOM CHESTS ALTOGETHER!!! THEY ARE AN EXPLOIT TOWARDS FAITHFUL FANS OF YOUR GAME!

 

Maybe one day I will get the Black Padded Coat from running dailies and getting it with hongmoon coins. If this chest even stays in the HS. Here's to hoping! <cheers>

I seriously doubt you've learned anything.  Multiply this guy by, what, hundreds?  Thousands?  Now you see why RNG boxes are here to stay.

Just bought 11 didn't get it. NCsoft take note. I am done with your cash shop altogether. I was in CBT and backed this game loyally. I may be leaving due to this sort of negligence if you do not address what this will do to your players. f2p....that's a joke. I would rather spend 15 bucks a month and have it all then have you nickle and dime me over random loot chests. This is a horrible business plan.

If you're looking for sympathy, you aren't going to get it from me.  Instead I'll be laughing at the fact that NCSoft suckered you into spending $100 for one of the ugliest outfits in the game.

They did take note.  And I'm sure your purchase made it that much more likely we'll see more of these gotchas.  Speaking with your wallet:  You're doing it wrong.

Thanks for your support! Glad to see others that care about this topic! Maybe you could use that sarcasm to discuss with and build the community. But on the other hand it seems like you are void of empathy as most on the internet are. Ridiculing your fellow community causes rifts that break down the game  population and cause people to leave it. If that is what you want then keep at it. Instead of telling people what wrong they did, which fixes nothing. Give advice as to how to deal with such a situation. Just think about it. Peace.

I'm sorry, I thought it was pretty obvious what my advice was on how one deals with the situation of rip-off boxes that isn't actually buying them. Guess I was wrong.  Very well, here goes.  How do you deal with rip-off gotchas?  By NOT buying them.  If people don't buy them, they won't try to sell them.

I feel like people are just putting big $$$ numbers to try to make the product seem evil as it is. Is there really someone stupid enough to spend 7k on a box and not get it? just think about it. lol. sucks to those spent over a hundred dollars though, but hey better than gambling in casino amirite? lol you get alot of gold for buying those RNG boxes.

Everyone that's spending a ton on these boxes take a little time out and watch this video at about 2:50 in are some stories you should hear. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBtXyv0Q1Eg and maybe some of you that think no way anyone's spending this much money should hear them also.

I get this. Thank you so much for sharing. You friend are building your community.

There is more versions of this ugly costume don't worry.In Taiwan I think we had 3.

Black,Blue and Red.Black was event(so not worth it considering we had BSH wig,mask etc),blue cash shop and red Premium loyalty event.

 

I can just imagine what F2P rage would be out there if we at some point get Premium Loyalty event like ASIA do.

Something like " Omfggg NCsoft SACKS they give shiny costume,mask or whatever to Premium this so P2W omg me quitttt,omg". Btw there except this event premiums also had costume and sheep hat for free.I can imagine if we had something like this here - the rage and the crying...

And if you're buying the boxes, you're either a victim or part of the problem.  The argument can be made the companies are just responding to the demand, and there are several threads where there appear to actually be people *happy* about these boxes.

 

The solution, for those of us who aren't legislators, is to not buy.
