Since we limited once a day and then we have 5 for maple reward (for entire event and doesn't reset) which kinda seems unfair for those want to get badge/title and pocket item mean while on non-reboot can get them for 22k NX .Is it possible we could pay meso's for actual entry ticket so we can be par with non-reboot servers ? i wouldn't mind paying 100m for 10 entry for sengoku ... least ill able to get decent upgrade for my main

    Honestly, even in non reboot, giving such an advantage to those who pay compared to free players is horrible. I haven't counted yet, but I'm not sure I'll even be able to get the badge without NX, and if I get it, it will still be the only thing I'll manage. Getting stuff in the cash shop already gives a big advantage, with cubes and all; making even an event completely geared towards paying players, I don't like it at all.

    You wouldn't mind paying 100m for 10 entries? How generous of you.
    A more realistic price would be 100m for 1 key, considering the NX:Meso rate in other servers.

    But, no. The event is a pay2win event, and Rebooters don't want to pay2win, so... they have to pay with time. You can get one item each time the event returns (which, I think, is twice a year on average).

    The event typically returns every so often. You might not be able to get the badge on every character, but it should be possible to get the badge on one (people have calculated it), and the event should be back in the future (save your coins).

    It's easier to do it if you can dump $$ into the game, but I'd call this more a case of "pay to win faster" than pure "pay to win".
    It's a recurring event, and you do get enough time to get one good item without paying, every time it returns.
    Also, there are other recurring events that give similar or better totems and pocket items (Red Leaf High, Hunter's Club, egg hatching) and the free (but time consuming) title from the Pink Bean event, which may return.

    So u give non reboot players an advantage by spending real money. So since reboot is a non pay to win, why not let us spend mesos on passes instead of nx?.. makes no sense. Your making reboot players have to go through 2-4 sengoku events in the spam of 1-2 years probably, while non reboot can get it in 1 event? Think about it.. @nexon

    Isn't this the idea behind Reboot? Slower progression?

    Since when? lol i seem to get more range faster in reboot than regular worlds.

    The reasoning being put forth here can also be used to say "reboot shouldn't have cubes"

    If Reboot didn't have cubes, Nexon would have to rescale all mobs and bosses accordingly.
    But if Reboot doesn't have the ability to get all Sengoku High goods in one year, it does not make it unplayable, nor any boss unbeatable (that would be beatable with said items).

    Most players get "shafted" as the NPC is in lag hall still.

    I agree with you. These passes are nothing more than cash grabs. Don't fall for nexon's traps.

    I didn't know the event returned, it's the first time I see it, this makes it somewhat better, though not to my liking. It is still geared towards paying players, and I'd prefer if at least events were equally accessible to everyone. If it was only a question of needing more time to grind coins I wouldn't mind.

    They'd have to rescale the new ones, but the old ones that die in a fraction of a second and never get a chance to attack even once would finally have their time to shine.
