Just look at it. It's sarcastic and just putting this event down-it's an attempt by the staff to promote the game and give people something to be excited about. Maybe it's a bore for you, but let's try not to rain on anyone elses parade.

Recycling Recycling Recycling...

Went on a recycling frenzy to test my luck at getting at least one of all the seasonal cards... So I scrounged up enough for 13 more draws to add to my earlier attempts...

First draw set attempts... This 2nd draw set attempts...

2 Archer Scouts +2 = 4
7 Sorcerer Guards +2 = 9
1 Saber Saint/ Lapierre + 1 = 2
5 Magic Dolls +3 = 8
2 Lycanthrope [Seraph]s +1 = 3
8 Devouring Lizards +2 = 10

Black Cat/Fellana: ZIP +1 (3rd to last draw!) = 1
Dark Emperor Zu-Jyava: ZIP +1 (Woo Hoo! Last draw!) = 1

Total # of cards: 38

Total gran spent: 38 x 50 gran/draw = 1900 Gran.

Considering that I only had 1 Dark Emperor before, and I enjoy playing Lawtia, this didn't seem like a bad investment. I also only had 2 Black Cats beforehand.... so this completes that set of 3 for me (Black Cat + Turn to Dust = Scandalous Fun!)

Not sure for other people however.

Depends if you "collect" or "need" them.

For 200 Gran more (2100 Gran) I could have bought a box of 65 cards (random one 5-star and one 4-star).

However, in my case I "needed" Dark Emperors. If someone already has 3 of the cards they want already (non-seasonal), they may balk at purchasing from the seasonal lottery and go for the box instead.

As for collecting, the artwork is great to look at, but I'd personally want them available as prints/posters/etc. (Go Go Conversation Piece about Alteil!)

My two gran, Mirth ;loading

spent $50

bought a box so I wouldn't waste ALL of it on gambling. Should have bought 2 more boxes. I am an idiot.

remainder - approximately 4100 gran

I spent all of it.... ALL OF IT on seasonal cards, over 5k recycling included.

I got

countless copies of lizard
countless copies of doll
countless copies of guard
quite a few copies of lapierre, seraph, and archer
exactly 3 copies of fellana
not... a... single.. zu-jyava

I am a very unhappy fellow.

And what's worse is after all that I feel like I should spend some more to get zu just so it wasn't all wasted. Something is wrong with me.
I used to wonder if I was crazy, but all that uncertainty drove me insane.

Thankfully I only had enough from MM for three attempts lol. This seems like something for collectors only, who care about art.

Welp.
I give up on picking up Fellana this way. I have other priorities, like actually expanding my card base.

This is pretty common, actually. It's basically why slot machines are addictive. But you're right about it being wrong, since wasting more money doesn't suddenly make the money you spent before suddenly worth more.

I played once and got a Lapierre, which is great because I only had 2.

I quit after that. Figured I might as well leave while I'm ahead. ;a33
