I was really let down by this year's event, to be honest. Even more so after they made the changes to how much energy you needed to do anything and how much energy you got per action. And there were only four event items... I guess we're pretty spoiled for that to be considered a small amount, huh?
Though I gotta say, the poinsettia items are absolutely goooooooooooorgeous, I wish there were more in the set.
This is a big year for Gaia. It marks the site being accessible by the masses for a full decade. You'd think they would have anticipated the begining of the year a bit more.
Hopefully this isn't a bad omen to the start of the 2013.
It's all about items and achievements now. Haven't you gotten the memo?
If we actually have to try, it's too hard. If we don't, it's not "interactive" enough.
And then we b***h about having to pay for things while we want these intensely complicated celebrations.
We got manga, we got items, we got achievements.
Gaia has never been huge on new years. Sometimes we'll get a small item. I'm happy that the artists and devs and such can maybe spend time with their family. I don't need some crappy novelty item if it means taking a burden off.
we've had a number of new Year's items over the years.
(this isn't the full list, I know, but I didn't feel like searching through all 10 years of announcements)
December 27, 2011- (CS)- Celebratory Pair
January 11, 2010- (GS) some New Years Item (champagne set, ect)
December 29, 2009- (CS)- Gaia Gaia Party Time
January 03, 2008- Free Gold (up to 1k)
Nothing for 2007 (Double Gold week?)
December 31, 2006- Double Gold Week
December 29, 2005- 24 hr. New years Event (with exclusive items)
Nothing for 2004 (?)
so I was a bit disappointed that we didn't seem to get any new years items, for 2013 yet, also
I wasn't expecting any type of New Years anything. I bet half the staff were with their families over the course of the holiday, which would explain why it ran over to January. Though they should have disabled the event during the day, not at night.
Manga and events should be seperate IMO
Cuz the manga makes the possibilities for good events so limited .. This could have been fun if it was a full fledged stand-alone event and not tied into some boring plot half the site doesn't care/know about.
I much prefer "Gaia" events like things with Kiki/Coco, cows, Grunnies - maybe I just prefer older Gaia. Meh.
My font size is always big lol
Helps me notice when people quote me.
You know, I didn't think about it but yeah, Jack and Santa didn't really appear..Maybe cause they're hiding from Nyx/Gambit?
Fair enough, I was really hungover when I clicked on the thread and was like AHH my eyes! *disgruntled post*.
Hmm I guess it would make sense if they were hiding. Perhaps the Holiday figure heads could be some sort of demi-god? Their appearance is one of the things I look forward to about the holidays events so it was disheartening not to have them around for 2012.
