    So here’s the deal, triple rainbow banners suck, what gumi did with valkyrie profile sucks.

    People keep quitting, @god.nomad is the newest victim.

    People are just getting tired of getting screwed out of money, I mean who wants to drop $100 for lapis and get 10 blue 1 gold multiple times, it’s deflating and demoralizing and depressing.

    I am determined to not give gumi anymore of my money, so I have an idea for a contest.

    Let’s see who can go the longest as a f2p without caving with a start date of today.

    If you’re interested, I’ll add your name to a main list , we will use the honor system, when and if you cave and buy lapis or a bundle, please reply to the thread that you caved and I’ll add your cave date and banner you lost it on to the main list of names I’ll create.

    If you wanna keep whaling, just disregard and do your thing, this contest isn’t for you lol

    FOUNTAIN OF LAPIS is the only thing excluded

    PARTICIPANTS F2P CLUB AS OF 10/28/18

    Why I will never spend again....


    Generally I do skip the banners I say I will skip, but there has been a few occasions when I see a unit I just have to have....like Seaside Nichol, I saw his kit, and I had to have him, now some people don’t care for him as much, but for my play style he’s perfect, many people enjoy big numbers, I enjoy seeing a trial boss hit me for 2 lol. To each his own, my issue is when I see someone I want, I have to have it no matter what.

    At the time seaside Nichol came around I had 150 or so tickets and almost 120k lapis

    I pulled and pulled, all 150 tickets
    75k lapis, and finally hit seaside Nichol 1. It was awful, but there he was, only one aloha by the way as well, so I said ok I’m not doing this anymore, I’ll just uoc him, and I did, and I couldn’t be happier.

    I save and save and buy a few bundles and work my way back up to about 65,000 and 20 tickets or so for this Halloween banner.

    I dare not try from my 7* grim lord cause of the triple banner, but I figure I’ll throw a few 4 stars to get some more pirate Jake, I had 2 and have used them all year. (That was my big mistake)
    I was totally skipping Lilith Lucius

    Ticket 1 rainbow:shadowlord
    Ticket 2: I nichol
    Ticket 3: rainbow WOW grimlord !!!! Amazing
    Still no pirate Jake, few more tickets later ...rainbow Lilith ...Gumi got me.

    Now I have one Lilith and everyone starts to call her an arena troll.....and....I’m a troll ....what do I do now? Of course I start to pull step up

    Lap 1 end with 3 Lilith 1 Lucius....dang fun I got me again, 4 and 2 would be better right?

    Lap 2 end with 5 and 2...dang 2 Lilith and a super tm would be better right?

    Lap 3 end with 5 and 3!!!!!!! Now I’m stuck waiting for mixers and Gumi managed to break me down to 0 tickets and 3k lapis again.

    Now I know it’s my fault, but you can see how i got suckered in, but I’m tired of playing this seasaw up and down game with them anymore

    My only saving grace is the last step up lap I did hit 2 pirate Jake and my second CG Fina so that softened the blow quite a bit.

    Now I’m sitting on nothing again, and I’m just not willing to invest to get back to where I was. A lot of it was free lapis, but it was still since seaside Nichol like 160k and over 200 tickets.

    I couldn’t buy that back right now for $1000.

    And you know what I’d rather have? Maybe a new iPad Pro to play the game on with the units that I already have and do a million other things on. So no, gumi isn’t getting anymore of my money, and I won’t even blame them, I let myself be suckered this last time.

    It played on my emotions

    Got 1? Have to 7 star
    Don’t get what you want? Screw or rage pull

    Their business design brings out the worst in people and I can’t support it anymore

    Does being a forced f2p counts? ::ink::

    I've been seriously thinking on spending once I get enough money but, who knows, since UoC is here and idk when 7* Nocto will arrive, I have enough to get again the 10 tix. Aside from that, dunno if there will be a banner of my interest...

    Stop the charade, you are far from f2p. You have become more like a dictator of skips while pulling indiscriminately!

    Notice I said from today’s date lol

    I’m tired of investing too

    Get new units and have to wait a month for a decent trial to actually use them in is very annoying

    I’d be cool with it cuz Gumi Greed is Gross, but FOL is too much value. If you’re willing to put a FTP (except FOL) group together, I’d defintely be game. The one time I dropped big money chasing a unit, I still didn’t get it. Spending money on this game gives very little value, but FOL is the best value that could possibly be imagined from Greedy Gumi.

    My personal rule going forward will be to only buy bundles that provide 10% more lapis per dollar than vault.

    That’s actual lapis, not some arbitrary lapis equivalent formula.

    If these latest bundles become the norm, I’ll increase the percentage requirement as I’m planning on pulling very little until Xenogears.

    But I support the overall sentiment and will mostly adhere to it. Good luck to those going for it. The best “Contest” since Seinfeld imho :)

    Before I join in, does the Fountain of Lapis count should it return? I am a sucker for that deal every single time.

    Alth8ugh we have no idea when it will come, it always comes at some point. I will purchase that the day it drops and therefore my lifespan on this contest will be limited. I would love to join as I am all for this cause. As a whale, I have been rehabbing myself and would love to take this challenge. That said, Fountain of Lapis.... $7.... 5,500 lapis.... too good to pass up!
