More like a 2x lag event.
Because they weren't planning a 2x event for this weekend anyway...
i laughed way too much at the title, is it just me or it sounds a bit too... forceful?
you want pomegranate? WELL WE WANT TO WIN, NO WIN=/= NO pomegranate FOR YOU.
Why not reward us for being loyal to this game overall? Oh wait..
And considering that Mabinogi got 10 exp for April Fools and MS got nothing... I voted for Mabinogi because I actually think that it's a good game...
i'm laughing over at the warframe forums though:
Nexon is holding our 2x events hostage.
Wow 2x exp and drop? This is like, super really generous! I feel like I'm taking advantage of them!
(This is a bad joke, I'm expecting a lot of pomegranates T-T)
This is a really pomegranatety April fools... oh wait, it isn't
Now that's some loyal customers. Maybe they get treated like humans over there?
eeh, it might have been the time i have spent on the 4chan general, but i'd have to say sorta. i'll give the game it's credit, it's much much much MUCH less p2w, i'd go as far as say it truly works as f2p. but in some regards it's as grindy as old maple, or worse even. getting some items either requires you to shell out one hell of a lot of "NX (either on the market or the trading tab, where the only currency is pretty much NX) or do some serious grinding for a chance to get an item that gives you a mission with a chance to get the item you want (and both chances are pretty bad)
edit: THAT SAID, the PR relationship is much, much, MUCH better, might be because the game is "just starting" as in the forums don't have that many people, but the DE talk and answer questions regularly (daily pretty much), the community managers are actual community members (heck, one's from a 4chan clan) and every 2 weeks the devs put out a stream where they answer questions about the game, where it's going and plans they have/how they're coming up. then afterwards they give 3 players on the stream 1k platinum (NX, and that's quite a good amount actually, enough to buy every color pack on the market and still have over half) and give an item worth 20 plat that is incredibly useful for 24 hours after the stream.
relationship-wise, they're miles ahead of nexon.
actually this notice makes me really sad... if they posted it early... I wouldn't even voted
seriously this is not the way to get people attention nexon.
Who cares if they win?
I think LoL not even being in the semi finals shows how relevant that poll is.
To be honest, I don't really care about this poll or contest either.
Of course this is not the way. It's sad, but Nexon probably knows this as well... That their own playerbase from across their several other MMO games aren't populated or loyal enough, so a cheap bribe would seem like the only way to get players motivated enough to vote for them. I guess Nexon just sees this as free publicity that can they put on a magazine ad or something to draw in new players to milk money off of. Not like we'd expect Nexon to care or respect what their players think of them beyond face value unless it's enough to affect their image or profit in a negative way.
Besides Warframe, other MMO gaming forums also sees this as a desperation attempt to win and I can't help but agree with them. Some of those players already know of Nexon's reputation by having tried or played their actual games, and this sort of thing isn't helping it. At least from my view, if the players respect the game and have earned good faith/trust in the company, they will probably vote for them with no bribery needed. I could be wrong seeing it like that though... Obviously, most of us don't in Nexon.
Wow, and this is working. Nexon should run for any 3rd world country's president position, they already know how to get the votes...
Well this explains why this dumb message came up during my Vindictus raids...
And funny enough, it was Vindictus vs Warframe at one point and it didn't get any attention whatsoever.
Haha, Nexon. Well played.
I'd probably repeat last weekend and waste my time killing Ariant rabbits and/or Ellin monsters while lagging to death...
