Thumbs down Events Coins

Can someone explain to me the point of winning events coins, only to be able to buy things like gas and shurikens?

As we all know, nothing worth spending your ECs on is ever stocked, and probably won't be for a long time. But why? Other servers don't do this, i'm sure they don't even have a limit on the items, but you have to save up more events coins / points to get the better items.

The whole point of winning events coins seems pointless, i think there should be either more things available, for more events coins, or stock some of the current items and give them a price tag of 1000EC. It gives players something to work towards, and would make events busier.

Like i said, as it currently stands, all the players can trade their ECs for is things they don't want, such as bubblegum, cigarettes, throwing knives, and shurikens. I'm sure someone has some initiative and could come up with a better system.

Opinions?

I agree with ya. But I think it would be a bad idea to stock some of the rare items. Idk maybe we should get some new ec items.

Maybe some one could throw out some suggestions. I can't think of anything atm

It's also funny that the items you buy with EC are banned in events. Doesn't make any sense at all.

If they were to implement high costing event items, they need to be undroppable. This way players can't save up event coins, buy a rare item, and then get rich off of it.

Just a thought, but what do you think of this?
A 10 min spy on any guild "/toguild or /tg" it could be very useful to spy on BB while they are raiding BH. So BH could know what to exspect.

Just a small thought, I'm trying to think of something useful that would be nice to spend ec on =D

if they know that there's a possibility they're being spied on, I think they would use other means of communication, such as vent which is very popular these days.

Anyone else think it would be a good idea for add-ons for guns? You know, that give you more spread, less spread, better fire rate... etc

Oh right forgot about that.

Yes to add ons, it sounds like a decent idea. I know for the fn2k there are already gfx for posible add ons. But a lot of guns might need new gfx. Or maybe the ec shop could release a new gun and just that one gun could could have an option for a couple addons.

Eh, I like the idea not sure how to do it.

I agree with you. There are only a few items in the EC shop worth getting, and most are just aesthetics. Once you do that, there are only a few items that you will continually need to buy, and virtually none that you want to buy.

The solution isn't to simply stock a bunch of axes/bamboos/etc, but to find a better way to reward players with events.

Perhaps a way to turn event coins into money or something else that players can use; I don't really like the idea of just making them sellable to some NPC.

Event coins and event items should be completely separate from the economy.

The items that are sold also shouldn't be too powerful. Event items should be a novelty. Some items are used in PK but don't give too great of an advantage like a flak cannon does.

I agree with you completely. The problem is more or less finding items that aren't incredibly lame, and that players still would work for/be motivated to acquire.

I agree, and being ETA i asked Deophite, he told me not to stock anything, i think it is pretty useless to save up your EC's for so long then not be able to buy anything but worthless gas and ammo for stuff you cant use, We(as in me and Nas) are working on some new event prizes and such that wont be like weapons and such, mayeb a few, but also some like little toys and stuff.
