So there is this spend event going on for two days called "Secret Vault"
It offers a plethora of choices of point exchanges, much more than you would find in Wishing Tree or Lords Gone Wild and the prices on the exchanges aren't too bad.
However, there is a limit to the number of exchanges for each item. I'm not talking about for you specifically, I'm talking about the server as a whole. So if you want a particular item you have to spend to get the points and then sign on at EXACTLY the right time in order to claim it before everyone else does. Is this not the stupidest thing you've ever heard? I woke up 5 hours after the event started and out of four pages of exchanges there were literally no items left.
So what happens when you have spent your gems but can't get on in the 10 min time period when the item quantities reset in order to claim... anything? I assume there's a 12 hour cooldown between the quantity resets.
So why do this? What is the purpose behind specific quantities for an entire server? Are they specifically trying to annoy people that miss the ability to participate? It just makes no sense to me to do this kind of event especially with the poor public opinion that's currently circling this game.
