A forewrod before reviewing the events. This is the 1 year anniversary, it has been a catastrophy so far.
I'm gonna write about all the problems i saw in these events, but the bottom line is: There are no events that gave more value to players, f2p or paying users, in any of the events this week than what we usually get.
Due to the limited characters i have and the length of the post i will just say that the treasure+ seal rebate is good and appreciated. As well as the very nice Mysterious hunting reward who is probably all the mods idea and work. Thank you for that event it was enjoyable and one of the few good things from anniversary. Onto the bad ones now.
Events : "Naruto online ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY"
Opinion : This is almost the same, perhaps even a worse version, of time limited recruitment. Not an anniversary event.
Reasoning: There is a cap of 20 ramen we can get daily, so that means we can get 1470 points in total. However the RNG in this game is so bad, that getting 20 ramen every day is impossible without buying stamina or having stacked potions beforehand. The mechanic is the same as time limited recuitment but you actually have to pay specifically for the ramen. Adding insult to injury, the cost of the redeemable items is higher than in other events. Medium refines cost 3 rame (30 coupons) Advanced cost 5 (50 coupons), the shop without any rebate is already cheaper. Not to mention the redeem limit of 10 refines. Now onto the ninjas, Hidan at 210 coupons per fragment is its usual cost, only that in other events there is more value since we at least get something (ie lucky board, hell eve 9 tails strength). As it is the only thing I see when i look at the rewards is "GREED"
Suggestion: Remove the refine redeem cap for starters. Then either slash the ramen cost by half or increase the RNG drop of ramen and its daily cap as well.
Events : "Anniversary Red Envelope" + "Platinum Recharge" + "Shinobi Feast - Recharged Rewards"
Opinion : A triple recharge event would have been great for spending players (me included). BUT why oh why did the envelope and the shinobi feast were made so that they do not overlap? Not even on anniversay day. That is a slap to the face and feels like an insult to paying players. Besides the synergy between Platinum Recharge and the enveloppe is bad, total recharge rebate would have been better.
Reasoning: In the Envelope event we get a nice bonus during recharge and we actually get to give some coupons to other players. I was happy when i saw that and thought of recharging a fair amount of money for once but now i'd rather wait for a better week. But its better to recharge small amounts with platinum recharge which btw is not anniversary special or anything, same ninjas, same rewards, same 17 pieces of susanoo sasuke. Isn't this a special week? Adding insult to injury, The shinobi feast does not overlap with the envelope. So its not a triple recharge event, just a double recharge like it has been in other weeks. Not only this but we must choose between giving back to the group some coupons or waiting for the shinobi feast which has good value for recharge.
Sugestion: In this scenario Total recharge is better. Also the 3 events should have overlapped for at least 1 day.
Events : "Mad Anniversary"
Opinion : A pure f2p event with terrible rewards. Summer packs is an old event with no special rebate for anniversary.
Reasoning: A f2p event is nice, but the rewards are terrible. Not because of what they are, but because we have a total of 70 baloons during the event. A daily cap of 10 balloons. That is equivalent to a 5 medium threads. I find that insulting in anniversary week. The water gun gives the same rewards, more or less than activity lucky bag. But we get a lot less of them and we don't even get what the possible rewards from those are beforehand. Summer packs is also an issue, its not a new event but an old one which is not that good included in the anniversary event. Without any special characteristic that may warrant it being in anniversary.
Suggestion: Remove or increase the cap to 20-25 ballons daily. As it is this event feels like giving crumbs to starved people. For summer packs Call the event what it is, its name from the previous weeks, or increase the value of the packs.
Events : "Naruto's Froggy"
Opinion : Besides the low return at higher ingot investment, the wording of this event suggested players could recover their ingots. Poorly worded bad value event.
Reasoning: With 100 ingots you get 30 coupons, 6 random lvl 1 rune, 1.8 seal scrolls, 1.2 charms. With 500 ingots you get 100 coupons, 6 lvl 2 random runes, 2.4 seal scrolls and 1.8 charms. The difference is of 6 lvl 1 runes, 0.6 seal scrolls, 0.6 charms and 70 coupons. That difference it seems its worth 400 ingots. I got *ered into this event before doing the math, that's on me. But honestly such bad value for one of the few special events this week makes me feel as though i was cheated. Besides this the word "invest/deposit" is misleading, it has already been adressed but it is not the first time something like this happens. Pleas infor Oasis that they should double check the description for their events.
Suggestion: The wording issue was adressed. But the value should at least be proportional to what is invested, multiply by 4 the difference between the 100 and 500 ingot box, same for the other boxes. The rewards are poor.
Events : "Call for Duty"
Opinion : Besides being a niche event with very hard to get rewards it feels like a desperate way to repopulate servers dressed as a rewarding event for the remaining players.
Reasoning: Players who leave the game rarely stay in contact with the players of said game (except maybe, through discord). The only ones who might benefit are youtubers, and even they are not guaranteed anyting since it must be returning players! The good rewards need 5 or more people to come back, thats a lot of people. Also why should we ask them to return? specially in a week like this one.
Suggestion: For once i'm gonna suggest removing this event completely. Replace it with anything you want, it will be better either way.
Events : "Daily Packs"
Opinion : The cost/reward ratio is even worse than before.
Reasoning: I will admit that these packs were liked by very few people before. I actually thought the 10 and 20 ingot packs where good value. The community wanted something better and while the cost was reduced, the value of the items diminished even more. The 1 ingot pack is useless to every player in the game after 1 week. The second pack has a 50/50 chance of being good value, maybe depends on rng drop of seal frags and coins. The third is just bad like before. We dont even get coins + a random drop, now the coins are a possible random drop!
Suggestion: Increase the value of the items, even if you have to increase the cost in ingots. Don't make the cost/benefit ratio smaller.
Events : "Consumption Wheel"
Opinion : This event brings bad memories in *ready bad week. We do not know the rng of this thing and it shouldn't be trusted.
Reasoning: Last time this wheel was here it was rigged to the point where the pool size got over 40k coupons. Yesterday the pool got to over 15k coupons but today it is at 9k coupons. I do data science and know how random numbers work, this behavior is abnormal from the syste where a part of the ingots you spend on the wheel get added to the pool while at the same time people can get a percentage of the pool with a ucky spin. This behavior results, after a sufficient number of spins, in a balance where the pool size remains more or less the same (with probably 1-2k coupons error margin). Unless the number of free spins is HUGE and the chances of getting coupons are decent, then i find this behavior strange. But will wait and see how it changes during the whole event
Suggestion: I don't trust this event at all. We should at least get the chances for each item on the wheel in order to have some faith in it.
Events: Survival Trial mission + Ninja Mission
Opinion: Free stuff given as damage control is appreciated, but it won't quell the players this time.
Reasoning: Players wanted a special anniversary week. This time around is not only f2p that complain about the lack of events in which they can participate, or how they want more stuff. Its the big ajority of the playerbase, p2p p2w and f2p, who are angry for all the above mentionned reasons. We didn't want more f2p events, we wanted good anniversary events.
Suggestion: Mods have limited to no power i get that. Don't sugar coat things this time. This anniversary is a failure, a train wreck and it only increased the toxicity between the community and ,probably, the number of players quitting the game. Tell that to Oasis, the truth.
