The way you express yourself makes it sound like the people who made the bonuses actually did some kind of deep and detailed analysis. It is very clear that the bonus was literally copy-paste from Cortina's. Which is 2 years old. So what balance does it ruin? They could bring a duelist set to Octoberfest or DotD similar to the Captain's, but with setting traps instead of hiding and balance the fort fights again. It's not a big deal.
well, I don't know many of the details, but the proposed stats were announced internally, feedback was given, including concern that it risked turning the meta into "defense must hold all towers at all costs" (because once a tower was lost the attackers could hold it forever until they got another tower and could then fill two towers and be all but assured a win) there was internal testing and public beta testing and based on the observations the powers at be decided that reducing the hp and ld a bit would mitigate that risk.
 
bruh we figured out the pattern plenty of times already...you have union blah blah it's not op
what are you crazy to admit it's op...they'd nerf your level 2 gun :lol: :lol:

i saw you playing on arizona. it's obvious you won't hit in attack, and i saw you top damaging in attack too
in defense you are top damager most of the time and it's not because you're too good at this game, it's because of your set. me as someone who didn't get the chance to buy that crap have no chance of outdamaging you, no matter how good i am, no matter how much i upgrade my free to play gear...not in a single battle, but overall. it's impossible

there's a difference between keeping up and being on top all the time. i have lv3 deputy, which is also nugget wep (has superior damage but less leadership so idk if that's really true...plus it gives hp...then the much lower hit rate, which makes the difference - apples and oranges) and i can't keep up with lv1 union...so please

put it in perspective with phoebe or ron or captain and there's nothing to talk about anymore
Sounds like a poor person problem, cry more

Same thoughts after every event.

Lots of useless drops I don't want and not getting those I do.

Events should let you save your event points then select which items you want.
I mean, yes, that would be both more enjoyable for the game and a hell of a lot more moral, but the whole point is that it gives certain people a little dopamine hit when they get a good item, which encourages them to keep gambling. You need "misses" for there to be "hits".
Both the monetisation and character progression of this game depended on the gambling - which ultimately drove most of the players away.

It's probably too integral to change now, but that doesn't mean we can't turn it into a positive - making all of the old sets viable again, offering 2 old sets and 1 new set at tombolas to slow down the power creep, and make alternative play-styles available again using upgraded old gear that we already have (there's already way too many sets to keep track of it's ridiculous).

More importantly, we need to shift the balance of skills away from the clothing and back to the player, giving much more skill and attribute points per level - bringing us back to a Role Playing Game, rather than the casino dress-up sim we have now.

Right! Let's start and end the event on the 4th of July to make it appropriate ;) No more day of the dead or easter egg hunt either! I want to feel like a real cowboy. Yee-haw!

Jokes aside, let's face it. These events are made to entertain and to squeeze some money out of people that are vulnerable to gambling. Of course we all hoped it started early and starting it one week before would have been a smart choice. But does it really matter that much when exactly it starts? Does anyone care if the soccer event fits in any way into the timeline of the actual football tournament? Or if it fits into the western scenario at all
Hmmm, good question. Would I mind celebrating Christmas in March or July? To use Vic's example, try to use that excuse when you forget your anniversary or your children's birthdays and see how well they take it.

I actually don't care. We are already riding iguanas, turtles and even a fish, so I expect Inno to give us a Pterodactylus or a T-Rex anytime soon. Or at least give us a dolphin or something, because I've always wanted to ride a cute but mean dolphin while beating a great white shark with my bare hands; it would make a wonderful sidekick. But don't call it Preparations for Independence Day when you are going to start it after Independence Day has already happened. Like I said, just call it The Clean Out After The Celebrations. Pretty much as you call anything after Thanksgiving "Leftover Week" even though you are eating the same stuff you prepared for Thanksgiving a week after the actual celebration. If you are a cat lover, or a dog lover or a chocolate lover, you know there's a good excuse to celebrate whenever it pleases you, since it's national cat/dog/chocolate day somewhere any day of the year, or it's the Hug Your Pet Day, or International something. So, Inno wants to throw an event? Fine. But give it an appropiate name then.
 
I realize this may break the spirit of the game, but I'm frustrated trying to figure out how to "Use a Buried Chest"... just another in a long list of unfulfilled quests that never seem to work...

meh, i know. another nugget exclusive set how unusual and unexpected
meh, it's a freemium game, a nugget set complimentary but not integral to the f2p sets is perfectly in keeping with that business model.
So long as the premium sets aren't more than ~10-15% better than level 2 of the best available f2p sets it's good for the community -- someone has to pay the bills, and there needs to be enough of both types to keep both the f2p and p2w players contributing.

Unionist ^1 is better than mosey's ^5.
Gringo weapons are better than cortina's ^5.
Etc.

if theres bills to be paid, stuff can be arranged. putting event items behind paywall is no good strategy fyi
