    Gee, thanks Nexon for saving me from dropping anymore money into this game. The original Re:Zero event in JMS did have rng based surprise boxes, but the thing is those boxes only contained the sponsored items and not the piles upon piles of worthless garbage. The cosmetics could also be directly purchased with nx like the original SAO event. It is disgusting how you people are artificially inflating the cost of getting anything in the crossover just to satisfy your own greed. With how the event is now, it would probably cost hundreds of dollars just to get everything in the Re:Zero crossover. The few Re:Zero outfits people do get from the event would fetch for billions of mesos, making it nearly impossible for anyone to even complete any sets unless they throw hundreds of dollars into the rng based boxes.

    Summarizing what I was expecting from the event:

    -Re:Zero themed hair coupons would've been purchasable with 5k NX flat with the option to choose styles, similar to the SAO event with an account limit.
    -Re:Zero themed NX would've been purchasable with 4-8k NX flat, but will be untradable upon purchase
    -Re:Zero themed Surprise Style Boxes would be purchasable at a flat 4k per box rate with a guarantee chance at one of the Re:Zero exclusive items. The takeaway of buying boxes is that it gives the edge of tradability among players, just like the SAO/AoT event.

    It's honestly BS that they decided to incorporate a 13/50 rate in the style boxes and a 1/6 rate for hair styles, especially considering that they've literally showcased the hair styles by USING the character-specific coupons in the livestream.

    I'm disappointed in that they're not selling at least some of the items separately like how they did it for Attack on Titan. It hurts using CAD due to it being lower than USD. Same with the hairstyles.

    There has been no mention about the rest of the Re:Zero Event but it seems that it looks more like a huge money grab than an actual update with good quality content for free players.

    We've only seen the Cash Shop update so far.

    Hopefully tomorrow's Update Notes will have some actual content. (I admit I haven't watched the preview stream or any JMS videos about this).

    That was how it was in when the event was running in JMS. The surprise boxes only contained Re:Zero themed items, not random garbage from premium surprise boxes or philosopher books. The cosmetic coupons were not rng based and could be directly purchased with nx like the SAO coupons.

    Based on what we saw from Arwoo's live Twitch stream, much of the event are similar to what has been done with our anniversary event (ie. slay X amount of monsters, or collect ## many trinkets). The only real difference is the questionnaire you get after running the errand. If you answer incorrectly, you must start over from Day 1.

    Now, how are we suppose to answer these questions to proceed? Do we need to have watched the anime? Are the answers intuitive or counter-intuitive (recall how you were meant to think along the lines of Dr. Gelimer back in Black Heaven's "Temporal Wormhole" event)?

    so are these medals going to be an award for answering the questions?

    Another pay to win event. It's even worse this time since they're going to make Reboot pay2win now

    OK, this is intolerable.

    The boxes are different between Reboot and non-Reboot, but the medals are available in both?
    Seriously?
    You think letting Reboot pay for the mounts is too much, but you'll let them pay for Best-in-Slot medals?

    @Arwoo , you must get that changed, before the patch tomorrow.
    CM Artasi helped us stop Cash Shop Meso Sacks being available in Reboot (back when it was released). You, too, can save Reboot from becoming Pay2Win. Do it!

    Having the medals in the boxes are fine so long as they lower the meso price; or fix it if it was a typo, and remove the NX option on reboot

    I was only talking about selling the boxes (with the medals in them) for NX. That is, as I wrote, intolerable.

    The meso price, while ridiculously high, doesn't break any principles.

    "Male Hairstyles are available for Crusch Hair , Subaru Hair, and Rem Hair. Female Hairstyles are available for Ram Hair, Emilia Hair, and Felix Hair. Stay tuned for the next Royal Styles update when these hairstyles will be available for the opposite gender."

    FYI, rem and crusch are FEMALE. also with so many transgender event things like this, it really makes me wonder why gay marriage ain't allowed, but thats another topic

    main point: REM AND CRUSCH ARE GIRLS DAMMIT

    Since the Update Notes are out. The Re:Zero Gift Boxes already seem disappointing. 30 Day Flower Accessory, eh. If the titles do not give any stats whatsoever, I'll be keeping my statement as of previously: it looks more like a huge money grab than an actual update with good quality content for free players.

    However if the titles provide some decent permanent stats or if any details were missed in the Update Notes... that may change things.

    Wow that is REALLY disappointing. Making it more RNG based to not obtain Re:Zero items. Putting the hairs into Royals instead of direct purchase coupon form. This is why I do not buy so much NX, there's just way too much luck involved.

    I think we need to make topics on their garbage, as opposed to just complaining here. They'll see this, and think 'hey, they're just discussing, let's not read it lol'.
    I despise the fact that the NX items are not just a gamble, but are like one of those quarter machine prizes with the 'other items included' sticker. I don't care if there's only 50 items this time, and that the other items are 'desireable', the items for Re:Zero are bound to be rare by default, and no one will be willing to sell them now for cheaper because they can go up in value. >_<;. This is supposed to be a special patch like the Attack on Titan one where we are supposed to easily be able to obtain items based on a certain anime series. Not gamble for a dismal chance at even getting ONE of them. 13/50 is bad as it is, but watch, the Re:Zero outfits are like 1% odds. It was supposed to be a box with JUST RE:ZERO ITEMS IN IT. Not random NORMAL NX items. This is a one time chance to get these, and they made them impossible to get.
    The hairs aren't much better, but hey, at least those are 3/6 to get one of the special ones. The clothing items are unacceptable. I hope Nexon lowers the prices, or changes the box next week or something, or offers packages or SOMETHING that makes these items possible to get, because this is a new low. This, combined with the random box that costs more than a Marvel Machine spin and gives less items makes this the WORST sponsor EVER, and even worse, the free part gives kind of junky items. If that android dungeon didn't exist, I would call this the worst patch next to all the nerf patches. The cash part is the highest level of BS I've EVER seen from Nexon. UGH.

    Considering how this crossover event is set up, I guess most of us won't be spending to gamble :3 1/4 chance to get perm nx related to the event at over 3 dollars a pop sounds like a rigged carnival game. I would rather they sell entire outfit+hair sets for 20k a pop.

    Yes, and the next Royal update will have their hairstyles available for females.

    Would have been nicer if all six styles were available at once for both genders, but then how would Nexon get people to keep rerolling?

    did they really only have the sponsored items? i was looking for the list that they had been referring to in this post down where it says "※ランダム型アイテムにつきましては、こちらをご確認ください。" but could only find their current list of surprise style options, also no where on that page did it mention being able to buy all the cosmetics directly. I also didnt see those options on the JMS extractions. so I really would like to know your source, I'd like to know to keep myself informed.
