Sorry I couldn’t order a Boruta sandwich because the restaurant was out of bread…
So… week #7 of the Boruta disaster. No rewards this week for my poor char… What changed? Not much… and alot at the same time.
First, we got hit by server time adjustment. So yeah, Boruta event started at 6pm, which isn’t very helpful when you have to work till 7pm, come back home and see that Boruta is already half dead.
Second, channel didn’t pass the 70/100 mark, meaning no crash during the event (at least once I entered… no idea if the channel crashed before but I presume it did not). So where did all players go? Well, they “veni”, they “vidi”… and since they couldn’t “vici” they decided it was time to do something else I guess.
That’s pretty much the main concern here: Boruta event is time consuming, and has “somewhat” good rewards… but you have to be in the top 70% to receive anything. Basically, you need 30% of participants to “come for nothing” in order to get something. And people will simply not waste a whole evening (and more if it’s still the case on other servers) for nothing. Currently, you still get contribution for your guild if you stay inside, survive and try to obtain gimmicks, so it’s still viable to come and push your guild upwards in the ranks. But what when only damage will count? You’ll get zero contribution for the guild and zero contribution for yourself… basically a waste of time. So in the end, will only the most dominant guild do Boruta? Will this become another guild event for one guild? And what will become when the bottom 30% of that guild will start getting nothing because they’re the only one remaining?
Oh well, there are still plenty of stuff to do in game. Irredian shelter is coming today, and expect to see that channel crashing a lot in the next weeks
PS: I dunno about the “bloody” joke, but it was fun farming event potatoes during Boruta yesterday, at least it wasn’t for nothing after all…
