I had my hopes up ever since seeing it and have now been through two major Holiday's and the events haven't been just disappointing, they have been flat out patheitic. It seems the creators have more interest in me spending $5 on the new Blue chest than making an exciting quest that if we are willing to battle through, the rewards could be awsome. Guess I was expecting more out of them since the game itself is amazing. It almost feels like the original creator was bought out or something and the new creator isn't a smart or as good than the one who created it. Think about it, a game where there is fighting, fishing, cooking, clans, multiple characters, awsome mobs, awsome quest, awsome weapons, genious skills, Fashions, mounts, cool looking worlds, etc, etc, etc.
Then we get the event...........................where we can win..........................wait for it...........................a crown!!!!!!!!!!!????????????????????? Seriously?
A couple years back, OTM decided to move their focus from large seasonal events to more permanent content. They've still been releasing minor seasonal events, but those have mostly been limited to a little new fashion (in chests) and a collector quest. On the flip side, with the focus on permanent content, they were able to release content like the Auction house, fishing, cooking, and the Corrupted Gardens (plus more).
The problem with the old events was that there was a lot to them...which was great, but it meant that it drew time and resources away from anything more permanent. After the event was over, the game went back to normal with nothing having progressed, except for more OP lux and (occasionally) loot. I think the current events are more to try to placate those who want some sort of seasonal thing.
I'm not sure whether VR plans to continue with OTM's direction and focus on permanent content over temporary content, or switch to a more balanced amount of both, or swing even heavier on the temporary side. I would really like an admin to share some information on that front, but they likely won't, as things can change.
