Anyone else think this was a bad anime event?

Like it's just some really disappointing kill quests and it's mostly reboot and cash shop focused. Like WTH nexon? The Madoka or Hatsune Miku events would have been a better choice.

    The attendance event for Re:Zero is a disaster itself. The rewards for it are not worth mentioning if you're looking for something to increase your stats. It may give some honor, mesos, exp coupons or a buff but that's very minor for events.

    I find it sad that the character creation event is limited to Reboot world. There are some people in non-Reboot worlds that would have wanted it as well but that requires a tweaking in rewards.

    The Cash Shop is a major cash grab. The majority of items obtained in Re:Zero Random Boxes or Surprise Style Boxes are in fact not Re:Zero items. Many people have stated that the rates are low and not worth the cost. Many have argued that the boxes should only contain Re:Zero items, have their rates higher, or sold separately. The Royal hair with 3 Re:Zero hairs with 3 other hairs is also a disappointment due to above said.

    I honestly believe that this crossover was poorly executed and something like this shouldn't happen again.

    For a crossover that had sooooooooooo much potential to be amazing... I'm disappointed.

    It's basically a glorified yet so incredibly bugged attendance quest where you die for no apparent reason (Yes I was avoiding all the areas that needed to be avoided)
    Also CS boxes are to be desired too...

    Most events are just epots and master cubes for early game, with very little made for endgame
    How this one manages to be even worse than that is highly questionable

    Honestly, I like the new titles, chairs and permanent NX clothes with this Re:ZERO crossover. But, previous crossovers were better. My favorite one will remain the crossover with Attack of Titans. Mini games were fun and the Cash Shop equipment was more accessible for players.

    I accidentally voted for the second option, whoops.

    I'm disappointed. Attendances sucks, have to pay $ to get the new best medal, very slim chance to get it even if you do pay $, and why didn't they include some nice rings? A good high level ring maybe idk. It just feels so bland.

    The event does feel rather lazy with 3 of the events being kill 100 of x on repurposed maps. It would have been fine if the fighting made sense in tie ins with the show (Fight 100 mabeasts, fight the White Whale, etc).

    As is it does feel like to get the most, you have to buy the Re:Zero boxes which is dumb and even then the boxes (as stated multiple times in multiple threads) mostly carry garbage or things none Re:Zero related.

    Here, I'll explain the two reasons why you may have died.

    There are only 2 paths that you can take so you don't die at the end of Day 4:
    Path 1
    • Preparation of Meal
    • Bathroom Cleaning
    • Organization of Books
    • Shopping
    • Search for Insignia

    Path 2
    • Shopping
    • Bathroom Cleaning
    • Organization of Books
    • Preparation of Meal
    • Search for Insignia
    ---

    In each quest there are death flags.

    There are Death Flags for touching maps objects.
    Preparation of Meal: Avoid weapon rack on right side.

    Bathroom Cleaning: Avoid faucets on right side.
    2016-10-30_203200.png

    Organization of Books: Avoid piles of books stacked up to 3. The easiest way to finish the quest though it probably just staying in the portals in the middle of the map and using AOE skills.
    100e30d34dde5bdcef91e33a74eafae6.jpg

    Other missions have death flags based on your decision. Here's how to avoid them.
    Shopping: Lith Harbor > Henesys > Perion > Ellinia > Kerning City. The importance is that you grocery shop in Kerning City last.

    Search for Insignia: After finding the Insignia, during the conversation with Emilia choose the good-guy answer, "Set aside your business and help".

    :T this event was a bust. I came back hoping for some new set boxes...but why would anyone ever do that...(I am under a sworn oath to not buy RNG boxes ever again, set boxes would actually...GET MY MONEY) once again...I slip into retirement mode until Beyond.

    Yeah, this event is a complete waste of time. Hyped to holy heck and was embarrassingly disappointing in a spectacular fashion that only Nexon can fail in.

    After the second day I completely lost interest. I got 9 honor exp and 50 spell traces for my trouble. No thanks.

    Waste of time. There's more non-Re:Zero items than there are Re:Zero items in the boxes. I don't know how you can even call this a Re:Zero event when there's 50-100 non-Re:Zero items in every box. People spent time watching the ENTIRE anime only for them to ruin this event for us.

    All Re:Zero related stuff are in cash shop, and in random boxes&coupons..(with not related junk)

    So yea..horrible..

    at least put some of stuff(event related) in-game quests, like hair style coupons.. will that hurt you so much doing so? why free 2 play players can't enjoy and get related stuff from this event? i'm sure you guys (Nexon) doing fine with the financial reports.. marvel was like few weeks ago.
