Special Event: Christmas Tombola

Howdy,

on Tuesday, the 18th of December a sepcial christmas event will launch, the Christmas Tombola. On the 18th at 0:00 server time, a glowing gift icon will appear on the top left of the interface, right beside the notification bar.
After clicking on the icon a window opens that shows a christmas room. That is where the event takes place.
The event will end on the 6th of January.



How does this event work?
Every day you can play once for free. After that it costs 20 Nuggets or 20 bonds to play. The number of plays per day is not limited. For each time you play you get rewarded with one item. That can be a chocolate cookie, a new set item or a pemium chest, depending on your luck. Each item you may get as a reward hasd a specific "drop chance" that varies from very little to likely to get with all together more than 56 items in the pool.
Depending on their drop chance, the items are gathered in categories: Common (Grey), Uncommon (Green), Rare (purple) and Very Rare (yellow).
You can see all items and all categorie by clicking on the "Info" button in the popup that is shown after clicking on "(Free) Play".

You can though improve the chance of getting a rare item by spending extra nuggets. By paying extra nuggets you can exclude item categories from the item pool. For example: For paying 25 nuggets you can exclude all common items and you will for sure get a uncommon, rare or very rare item.
You can always see which items are left in the drop pool by clicking on the Info button or the coloured boxes.

After clicking on "Start" the system will calculate your item reward and show it after a few seconds (or after you clicked in the window). The background colour in the popup informs you about the category the item comes from. "Common" items have a gray background, "Very rare" items are highlighted yellow.

On the bottom left of the window you can find a rounds count. The count shows your number of plays and the number of plays of the player with the most plays on your world.
At the end of the event the player with the most plays on each world will get all three new item sets as a special reward for free.


What can I win?
There are lots of cool rewards and the best thing is: Each round leads to a win!
In the Common category you will find a lot of consumable items that boost your energy, motivation or give you free premium days.
The Uncommon category contains item chests and boxes as well as some new cool set items.
A lot more new set items and valuable item boxes are part of the Rare category.
In the Very rare there are category boxes with all items of one new set, the premium chest, an envelope with 1000 bonds and a lot of new weapons that also form own sets.

The three new sets:

There are three new cloth sets and three new item sets.

I would prefer a new quest to get these items- it is far too expensive to have to pay all with nuggets- and again it just confirms to me - that InnoGames really dont care about anything, but how to get money out of us.

In all worlds players are leaving - something needs to be done fast - if you want players to stay - and I don't really think that making us use extra nuggets - before our worlds are closed down - because there are too few players left is the way to do it.
Many players have closed their wallets - because they are afraid that their world i s closing down - or because they are planning to leave - if something is not done to the job system.

Sorry about my negativity - but we have had nearly no feed back for a very long time - both here - and in the Danish worlds I am playing - but we can see that the activity is dropping very fast. Many times I have put my character to sleep in a town - and found the town gone the next day.

Maybe someone is considering all the feedback we are giving - we don't now that - because no one is answering.

With feedback from some other players, about 40 normal games (without eliminating any category), only 4 uncommon items dropped, all others were common.

So tell us Joony, is there any point of hoping for rare or even very rare drops with normal game?

Well i got 1 day of free premium income.
And used 40 upbs to get 2 extra rotations.

Just a few questions:

The new sets are only available during the tombola draws or will they be inserted into the chests from now on?

After January, 6 will the sets still be available on the chests?

For now the sets are only available in the christmas tombola. There are no plans to use them in other ways in the future yet. We might reconsider this in a couple of months but as I said, nothing planned.

for me it seems you guys are finishing the year as you started, listening to your bank manager.

the chance to win decent items is far too low for non nugget users
the chances to collect an entire set is even worse, but at least you made them auctionable so the nugget spenders can get more money from the market.

At least they are purchaseable by bonds but perhaps some communication with your CM's before hand would be nice. The .net servers were gven a UPB shop sale last week which saw all of mine and im sure alot of other peoples supplies of bonds dissappear.Just seems like poor planning to me or perhaps that was the plan, get rid of our bonds so we have to buy nuggets.

After such a poor year in terms of content pushed out and customer satisfaction , this was a real chance to show your community that you listen and its not all about money.

what an epic fail that was.

A lot of players are expecting some sort of questline- and are only doing that boring Christmas quest - a holyday spook - because they expect some thing better after that - but I can see - they are going to be disapointed.

it's really nice, even though i think that it should be a little bit cheaper.

Also , If I keep my premium medals(the ones with 1 day of each premium) will they be lost?Or can i keep them for collectible reasons?

How about an ingame money option too? That way all the 3 currencies in the game could be used to play.

I think it's nice, but a possibility to use ingame money would indeed be great. :)

Yes, I also miss this. It would be nice if we also can buy them with ingame money.
InnoGames forget all those players who cannot buy nuggets? Happy chrismas !!! :rolleyes:

And I have to say:
The golden gun has 232 - 348 damage and those of this set has 250 - 350 damage.

So why the hell are we going to get the GG now when some nugget-players can get better weapons ???

A good one would be:

First ride: free
Second ride: 5000
Third ride: 10000
Fourth ride: 25000
Fifth ride: 50000
Sixth ride: 100000
Seventh ride:200000
Eight ride: 500000
Ninth ride: 1000000
Each one after this one would be adding 1M for the last one.

And this everyday would reset.

Or make the very rare with an option to pay 100000 once per day to make 1 ride.

The GG gives fort bonus, +5 to be precise. None of the new weapons give that, only Natty's set bonus gives +3, but that doesn't match the GG bonus.

joony said that feedbacks are welcome...

joony just answer one question?

do you guys think that we are stupids or what? you never listen ours feedbacks so the it is just to create a image that you listen us. please this tombolo is just to take our money. the game is becoming even more terrible. the goal is take our money without listen us or improoving the game.

why feedback??? why??? answer the really reason for a feedback!!! it is useless. you guys don't care for our opinion

you want my feedback, here goes!!

Listen the players, Listen the players

is it clear now?

Another possibility would be give every player (not just beta) 500 bonds. It is the season of good will after all, you guys could really do with some good PR around now. Please please dont let this christmas event be all about the money. The advent calender has already been such a let down and this is well on its way to being another slap in the face
