Monster Taming Event is far too nerfed


#1

In the previous 2 monster taming events players went hard on it because it was one of the few free ways to get Diamond Anvils and by far the best way. Everyone keeps saying “IMC is trying to remove Diamond Anvils from the game” so removing them from the event is not too unreasonable, but this event was already nerfed hard the last time it came around, the only reason it was as popular as it was, is because of the reward.

Bringing it back with mediocre rewards, is mediocre but that’s okay, compared to the shitty events we’ve been getting like Rainbow Trek this is still kind of good. Until ofc you see all the additional nerfs this time around…

The cost to level these things is insane, most people cannot compete with that level of farming so 132 is not gonna happen today for your average player. Especially if they’re not even motivated by Diamond Anvils.

However let’s just say that Mediocre rewards and horrible leveling rates were not a big deal, we all get past that because it’s finally a decent event. Even then you get 2 runs a day and you get 1 currency per 10 levels. If you manage to get 300 day 1 and you farm every day that’s 60 per day for 22 days that’s 1320 of these things total Cubes cost 50 each and ARE CAPPED?!?!?!? WHAT? For all 30 cubes it takes 900 of your currency. Pretty sure the cube cost was far lower last time.

If you had put these limits on the event while Diamond Anvils were a part of it, I think it wouldn’t be a big deal, people would still do it and the only real issue would be bad luck people getting 0 diamond anvils while good luck people get like 5/30

However the fact that the best prize is Primus Armor or Attributes which are both far easier to get via other not limited sources, both of which will also be far easier to get during Rebuild as well, it means this event is just bad.

It was a fun event, but:

  • The grind has been made too harsh in both player level requirement and monster leveling requirement
  • The items and currency gain are too limited
  • The prizes are mediocre, which again is not the same as bad prizes, but in an event this harsh, it’s not worth it.

I honestly hope this event becomes a permanent system in the game someday where new bosses are released each month or so. However it needs so much fixing atm, this round is a complete failure. Please salvage it. If you don’t want to give us Diamond Anvils, I get it, that’s fine but at least make the effort put in match the rewards gained.

This is how I feel about it

and by the looks of that convo that’s how others feel about it to.

The event doesn’t even look like it’ll be that profitable for players not looking to partake in it.

I’ve seen enough bad ToS events to not care about, between Rainbow Road and those stupid events where you can’t see anything but can’t let monsters touch you. At this point I’m over complaining about events as a whole, but this is an event that I was looking forward to, it was so good the first time and even during the second time with all those nerfs it was still great. I don’t expect it to ever be that good again but if it was at least worth doing that’d be nice.

The one good thing I can say is due to the coin entry system it appears as if we don’t have to run the dungeon right away to get the maximum entries? I’m not sure on this but it looks like I can just not worry too hard about the event for now and level slowly while I wait for you to make this event not suck. I hope that is the case.

While I don’t think Diamond anvils should be ever be brought back, I do agree that the rewards are bad. Especially when you can only redeem a limited number of them.

It would be nice to get some clarification from @STAFF_Bob or @STAFF_Yuri about this:

I did a lvl13 run (boss and my 3 monsters being lvl13 too), and instead of getting the 130 fragments I should have gotten, I only got 1. Is the event description wrong, or are the rewards bugged?

Also, the blue cube reroll price being 500k is stupid.


#3

There’s really no incentive to do this event :\


#4

Same. I didn’t even bother catching any monster since you would need approximately 9.2k energy to reach max lv300 for only 1 monster. So much for actually improving their events (http://tos.nexon.com/lab/dev/view.aspx?n4ArticleSN=92)

Well they edited it. No point doing this event since actually playing the game would reward you more instead of wasting time farming 27k energy.

EDIT: Exchange your Blue Fragments for the following items at the Event Notice Board! The amount of Fragments you receive every mission is equal to 1 Fragment, plus 1 per every 10 levels your pet monster has over the mission boss .

500k for 2x megaphone. :distinguished:


#5

The event came with bug, rather than acknowledge the bug and fix the bug they prefer to edit the text for this nonsense reward.


#6

New event

Ninja edits

Nothing new here :sleeping:

The description is wrong, I found it clear that, well its been far complex then I thought.

It will give you one fragment as basic reward.
But it will get bigger, that when your tamed “monster’s” level is higher than the Boss monster your tamed monster fight with.

Let’s say if you Have 1 Level tamed monster and you fight with 10 level Boss.
you will only have 1 fragment as prize.

However, when your tamed monster’s level gets higher, higher than bosses level by each 10 level you will be rewarded with +1 fragment

So, for example it will be like…

Tamed monster >> as T

Boss >> as B

if T is level 30 and B is 10, then the difference between B and T is 20, which means, 2 more fragment + basic >> total 3 fragments.

if T is 70 and B is 10, then the difference between B and T is 60, then 6 more fragment and + basic, total 7 fragments, and it goes on.

So there is no need to pic the higher level Boss?
Say I have all 3 of my pokemans at lv300… why would i pick a boss that is lv400 if it wont give me additional fragments?

I feel like the mechanics are reverse… :thinking:

Shouldn’t it be when you pick a Boss that is higher level than your Tamed Monster, It will give you more fragments for defeating it as a reward?

If you say is true then everyone will just pick a Level 1 Boss and fight it with Lv300 Tamed Monster with no challenge at all…


#9

There is one, to give exp for the monster you also require higher level monster, since the exp item have higher chance on higher level monster.

After you done leveling, then you could switch to farming phase.


#10

/me looks at the event description
/me gets a headache
/me looks at the rewards
… headache is gone.

Good luck with the event! I’ll go play Pokemon Go instead… :haha:


#11

Let’s start a good friendship in pokémon go! My trainer code is 4004 8312 3324! :satisfaction:


#12

Do you get 1 fragment for every 10 levels of difference between all of your monsters levels combined and the bosses level?
Or does only the highest level monster count (which would hard cap the maximum gain at 30 fragments per run and make it basically useless to level up more than one monster since you kill weak monsters only)?


#13

This is a joke.

Monster Tamer level 100 = 1050 monster energy
Monster Tamer level 300 = 9150 monster energy

Monster Tamer and boss 100 = 10 fragments
Monster Tamer and boss 300 = 30 fragments

1050 monster energy = 2 megaphone in 3 days
9150 monster energy = 500 attribute points in 30 days (event does not have 30 days)


#14

Gee, I wonder why this event is so tame compared to the previous ones.

(said no one)


#15

What do you mean when you said “the exp item have higher chance” ? bosses in the event give something? besides the blue fragment and cube


#16

So, you get the “most” out of the event if you tame your monsters until level 300 to fight level 200 bosses?

That is kind of weird, honestly. Even with the whole “tame first, farm later”… like, you gonna farm for items and level up your monsters until 300 to face a much lower level boss?

EDIT:
wait - does the level of the monster and/or level of the boss improve their HP and damage? Or is it just placebo for level difference?

There really wasn’t anything wrong with the old leveling system. The current one makes it harder as it goes along but the value of it doesn’t increase.

Event lasts 22 days 22 * 60 = 1320 fragments if you max your monster before fighting.That is 2000 attributes worth if you buy them. In the time it takes to farm 9150 energy whether you’re level 150 or 390, you will make more silvers worth of attributes that that, not counting item drops.

Now of course the most reasonable thing to do is buy the cubes.

You get 44 cubes guaranteed by participating. with 1320 you can buy an additional 26 Cubes.

All that extra effort amounts to less than you are guaranteed from the start.

Idk what you’re talking about with “There is one, to give exp for the monster you also require higher level monster, since the exp item have higher chance on higher level monster.” as far as I can tell no such thing exists. Idk if you had anything to do with the changes or if you’re just the one with the unfortunate job of covering for those who did ruin the event, but I hope you wouldn’t make up the existence of an item to calm us, when some might actually waste their coins early farming for it. We’re still hoping for change. It’s early in the event and this coin system is the best change of the event so far, since it gives you (IMC) a chance to undo your/their mistakes and give us the event we’ve been waiting so long for.

just a comment, 100-ish energy orbs per 30min CM is too generous. I did 6-10 CMs and gotten around 73-87 per round.


#20

I think you get môre energy orb if you do cm in high level map ( Astra in my case) i always get around 120 in every cm And maybe this is what the GM mean when she said that higher level monsters have môre chance to give “the exp item”
