Remember Kyra's Catalyst Boxes ?

Remember they were in the open world, man that was (for me) best event EVER.

    Cue in someone telling you we won't have those events anymore because of exploits that have been fixed.

    One thing is fixed, but a lot of other issues are not. It's still broken.

    (Not to mention, if anyone actually remembers this event, it was exceedingly broken back then, too. This is why, from that point on, all catalyst events reset and don't carry over and they never had any meaningful rewards in open world hunt boxes again. It's not that I don't like the event, but it's got issues.)

  • World is imperfect and everything has issues. But one will work to fix it and make players happy while another will regularly speak why it was bad.
  • Farming 300 catalyst as a goal everyday was nice and all but, seeing people teleporting on top of the boxes as you fly to them wasn't particularly enjoyable. It's better if we don't have these kinds of event anymore.

    I still have Kyra's catalysts in item claim. Guess they didn't fully remove them.

    You're right - they removed them from inventory and the balance in Kyra's, but not item claim. I don't know if they forgot it, or just don't have the tools to remove things from item claim.

    As if I have any ability to "work to fix it." There are a lot of things I would fix if I could. I'm just trying to let people know what I understand the underlying issue with this is so there's no big mystery.
  • to be honest i did not know people exploited this event by teleporting and [filtered], sad. no wonder why the game is lacking content.

    Teleport exploits should've been fixed though. It's detectable by the server now because the client now needs servers response to teleport you for long distances now, unlike before. Which makes this detectable.
    Coupled with the way the boxes spawn which was changed as well most of the box related exploits have been fixed. People used to be able to go under maps through mountains and stuff and get the boxes that spawned underground, however boxes now despawn after a certain amount of time and because of that they won't be plentiful under terrain.
    I say most exploits because I'm not aware if any other existed at all. And if they did, they're not widespread enough in the community for it to be harmful.
    I really like the box event because all levels can participate in it and it's really fun and relaxing to do while waiting for queue/inbetween daily boring grind. Saying we can't have it anymore because of exploits is silly because literally everything in this game can be exploited, should we remove dungeons too? Because of memeslash? Just ridiculous.

    Making prizes untradeable and bind on pick could be the answer to stop most of the people exploiting because we already know they make use of exploits to make more profit from the stuff they get using them.

    However that will make the players even more annoyed than not having those boxes, not everything could be solved throught bans or deleting items from players inventory that got the item from another player exploithing the game.

    There are many things to take into consideration about this and the most important thing is "some prices included on events are cash shop items" so EME has all the rights to be cautious about their events beign exploited.

    It's not exactly a fair comparison, because you're talking about core systems vs. optional reward events.

    But anyway... there is a way they could do it if they can put some programming into it. Basically, they could make an event like Kyra's where you have in-game tokens that communicate with the store to redeem (the way catalysts currently do). And the store could impose a per-server/per-account daily limit on how many you can redeem, plus all rewards would be untradeable. The limit could be high enough so that it could give many hours of box searching, but enough so that any sort of potential exploit would be basically pointless (all you'd potentially save is a bit of time). Something like this is probably the best way so that we can bring an event like this back and make it fair for everyone.

    time to delete the entire game. too many exploits.
    except the cash shop, that can stay.

    And the dress room, the dress room can stay also, so we can use the cash shop items.
