    Besides all the other stuff going on in RIFT, I have to admit this is a very generous event with worthy rewards.

    I like that the leaderboards are worldwide, so people don't transfer on PvP/low pop shards, I like that you can spend the tickets on fixed rewards (no rng) and I like that the top 100 get fixed extra rewards, but the top 1000 also get in a raffle. I also like that you only included normal endgame content (no grindy quests) and left Conquest out of it.

    I am sure this will bring back some players, so make sure to make major positive announcements during the event to keep them.

    Pretty cool event. Don't like that people can buy their way to the top buy purchasing more credits and then more charges but all in all, it's a cool event with a ton of neat prizes.

    And yes, glad to not see CQ or anything out of the ordinary for it. Normal stuff that people do is great.

    Oh, bugger. I'm so hyped about it that I misread it. Someone please lock me in a dungeon until it actually starts?

    Well, I guess this saves some of us some time ;)

    Its a total credit scam guys. Look at the warfront rewards for tickets. The most tickets come from WF's across all 4 weeks. If you have dungeon charges you even get more. So guess what is going to happen. Daddy's credit card will be used to buy WF's charges and the winner each week will the be one with the most WF's done. Who benefits from this? Trion will. Instead of each activity giving 1 ticket thereby eliminating the requirement to buy credits to win, Trion basically has painted every player into a corner who wants to win. They win by default.

    I don't know... I read those rules and conditions and the very first line said "A PURCHASE OF ANY KIND WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING."

    Just look at the dungeon leaderboards, Experts can be cleared within 5-10 minutes (except Rhaza'de Canyons maybe) and give guaranteed tickets, while warfronts only give you tickets when you win. I would guess you can farm tickets faster with a premade Expert group than with warfronts. Or Instant Adventures, they should also give fast tickets, especially in week 1.

    Secondly, buying so many dungeon/warfront charges that it would really matter would require much more credits than you actually can win.

    Imho, the question in this event is how much playtime you have.

    Well that statement is of indeed wrong, as patrons have more charges and you can buy additional charges for credits in the store (= more tickets). So purchases DO increase your chance to win, it is just not really a gamebreaker here imo.

    To that subject:

    This was to much in english. It would be fine, if you would consider of the other languages, too. Generally it´s no problem for me, but sometimes ty.

    I read all the details on the event and this is what stuck in my mind the most. I'm sure the 5th anniversary will be fun, but its mostly catering to the people that can play the game all the time.

    I guess there is no need for me to participate in this event since Quebec is excluded. *pouts*

    And also: wtf why?
