    If I'm not mistaken, I read something about black market moggle in Reddit. Can it be the normal grind exchanging shop?

    If that's anything like JP current "Raid events", you'll unlock the gifts ( sent via mailbox ) as you are gathering points from doing the dungeon over and over.
    No trading involved like King Mog with farming events.

    Question here....
    just today, a mail about the raid was sent.
    it shows a Ranking that gives some prize.

    thing is....
    highest prize, for Rank 1, is 3 trust moggles, 8 tickets and 10k lapis, which is a crazy prize...
    alright, but for Rank 1.
    does that mean that only ONE player in the world will get that?
    really?

    if you go down the list all the really good prizes are up to rank 100...
    from there, it goes downhill very quickly and the average joe has little hope getting more than 2 summon tickets (10k to 50k rank)
    really weird.

    not a lot of people will even have the hopes of getting to the upper echelon of prizes as in a game like this, 100 people is just no one, really.
    am I missing something or is this really how it works?

    I mean, arena gives the highest prize to 3000 people and even that is not an easy feat, you have to play A LOT of arena to be able to get that....
    I can only imagine what a crazy amount of play you need to get to be able to get to the top 100.

    by the way....
    does anyone know if the raid orbs can be refilled with Lapis?
    if so, then the event is definitively only for whales and I'll keep mostly away from it.
    lol.

    Even if ur not top player play for prizes just dont refresh orbs it doesnt take nrgy or arena orbs its its own power source so one more thing u can do while waiting for refills and free stuff no matter how dumb it is

    Seems like it yes.
    You get motivated by individual prizes (list remain to be revealed but it has to be good to have more than 100 players !)

    questions:
    1. So it's many players vs. a monster. I assume somebody must start the battle, how about the rest? Do we randomly join people's monster, or could we select a room (and for that matter, search for our friend's room?)
    2. About the correlation between % of damage we do and prize. Is the rpize given at the end of the battle? Or when the monster is dead, and taken into account all damage we've done to the monster? So 1 orb give us 10 turns, but I could dump all 5 orbs and subsequent orb for 1 monster right?

    I think you'll always fight the monster alone...
    there's no such thing as going into other people's rooms.
    what happens is that the game adds all damage together and takes it away from the large monster HP pool.

    No whaling, no winning.

    Nothing new here to be honest.

    thing is... with only 100 spot for really great prizes, even A TON of whales, even a lot of pretty big ones, will be left out... lol.

    in a game where getting to the spot 3000 in arena ranking isn't trivial, getting to 100th place on a ranking is something 0,01% if all players or something could strive for.

    it doesn't make a lot of sense, IMO.

    The 1st prize is nothing compared with the Lapis he will need to spend with refillings to be the 1st.

    so in general, if your an average player with average characters, whales will keep yo from getting points because all their tm boosts and items plus their multiple versions of high end characters will keep tou from doing moderate amount of damage. hense low points and miniscule rewards, sorry looking at the picture with the player base wide rewards dont look enticing if you have to get 70000000 points only for one rare ticket.

    I totally agree with you.

    But you know, whaling for virtual stuff usually doesnt make any sense for those who dont :P

    That's how I see it as well.

    We dont have the whole picture yet, but it seems like a terrible Xmas event if that happens that way. I hope we're wrong tho.

    Yeah, their little example really shows one person at rank 1. Hearing the group and individual rewards made me think this was going to be something decent. Lets all work together to get the best. However, if the best stuff is only for competition(whaletition) and this is what events are going to be like going forward its about enough to make me quit.

    Like Arena. I win every match doing it 10 times a day and have never break 30k yet. This time every time I do Arena I'm at 80k. It has gone from something to strive for to utter futility. Its quickly going from fun to a job I have to grind every day and that isn't why I play games.

    So if i understand correctly, each time a player beats the boss, he will become stronger. That means once the Whales start to beat the boss refiling orbs to get to the first place, the boss will become too much strong for the average player? Or the boss only increases a level once per day?
