Make a ship only availble in the near future via 100 CP chance "roll." Make the odds so extreme that some poor soul spends his paycheck "rolling" for it; doesn't get it, and we line out pockets with green.
As Holiday special and as shallow as a Holiday present at a Vegas casino.
I will be passing
I couldn't agree more. I've been one of the few not complaining about every single change, but I firmly believe these holiday events should exist for the fun of it, as a way of getting people to log into the game, chat with each other and maybe getting some fun freebies.
Other MMO's have some great holiday events, and I was looking forward to this one a lot.. but they've turned this into a very cynical and frustrating event that exists for nothing more than selling consumables. You even have to queue up just to get into the race! Where they trying to include all the bad things about Christmas, instead of the good things?
