this guy is such an idiot.
he spend over 2500 Dollar on halloween pulls only to get trolled so hard by a mountain of s***ty off banners that he didnt need.

Makes me feel like a small minnow. I feel like i have not lost my sanity yet. But people like Dyer are certainly very deep down the rabbit hole. And their biggest enemy is their own addiction.

Just to show that spending thousands of dollars still doesn't garantee getting a unit that you actually want.

Would never be a problem if every 5 10+1s guaranteed 1 5* base from the pool

But nah - much better to try to encourage people to -spend- $200 to not get completely screwed rather than something in place for people who blow huge chunks of lapis and see how common getting completely f***ed by it is

I watched him go through 5 10+1s with absolutely jack s***. If you spend 25k lapis, or $250 worth in game currency you should get SOMEthing you were going for. A 50% moogle for one of your units maybe. Getting 50 blue/yellows you didn't want or need is a hell of a letdown.

And this is why I will never financially support this predatory model
Cutscenes are cheap. Quicktime events are lazy. Games shouldn't be movies.
Hallwayitis is a crime against role-playing games.

Yeah. I'm more offended that mosts 11s are vomit. They'd probably make consistent money if they had a better system in place.

Doesn't really matter to them though. They've got an ad wheel now so even the F2P are paying them.

But too many people do. That's why this will never go away. It will only get worse until the governments of this world like Belguim do something about it.

EAs biggest flagship is FIFA and it has turned basicallyinto a casino game, much worse than FFBE even.
And that's just the tip of iceberg.

The gaming industry is bascially screwed.

Womp Womp....

Luckily for me I stayed away from that Piece of s*** banner at all costs...

Everyone knew that banner was a scumbag decision by Gumi, but I guess he was determined to power through it.

Gumi needs to stop being greedy a******s and make 7 star banners of all kinds, not such scams.

Worst part is... They're severely dated units. 2 years old, and if they think that what they did makes them at all worth what that banner is, they're.....just pricks.

I bet Gumi thinks they did nothing wrong and this will be the same model for the Christmas units of old.

Luckily again I have 4 Noel's, 2 Christine's and 2 Krylas. And I dont have to touch whatever stupid scam they have for us then.
If you hear my theme song starting to play (https://youtu.be/IyI9DYAFNHI) you better run.

Holy doley! He's not hiding his lapis anymore. Sheesh!

Makes me feel good getting 2 GLS (2 Dracu Lassworms, 1 demon rain, etc.)(will hope for one more before this is over) from saved Lapis as opposed to spending like this :O

I'm really interested in how wkn will look as a 7 star. At the same time I only have 1 so i don't know if I'll be able to chase #2. BUT i got lucky in the past and on this step up and i have lillith m. Ramza and wilhelm at 7 star so maybe i won't need wkn?

No man should never bear witness to the crazy s**t I've seen on the internet.
