Converting normal souls to rare ones is "risky" because opening them and saccing the 1-3* chars "should" give more rare souls...depending on your RNG-luck. I thought about to buy the legendary souls for future chars, but it is too expensive, especially the colored ones. Due to the smaller pool of chars, G/A must be a bit more expensive, but 30 rares for one? Wow! Well but there will always be something for the gamblers in the shop, I am somewhat ok with it. For sure I will never be a fan of this freemium style with these related consequences.

    The timing of the event is one of these consequences. For me it was not a problem, as I have a good control about my gambling behaviour and I save my resources. But the clear intention behind it to exploit people that cannot control their gambling (and/or were really really unlucky with the recent event chars) is disheartening...a "freemium" thing again.

    About the Talis:
    It is an interesting way to make the Talis sets available by souls. It was a bit unfair in my opinion to have the same Talis in the 20€ pack before. I don't buy things for real cash, but I can undestand that some players must be angry about that if they spent the money.

    In my opinion the biggest problem in the game right now is, that so many Talis are not available and new powerful ones are introduced often pay-2-win only. It is annoying as hell to go into a PvP fight with good counters for all abilities of the enemies (and the "usual" Talis sets you expect) but then things are completely different because of the pay-only Talis. In the moment it is redeption and revenge. Some months ago it was destiny. I understand that money needs to be created and it seems to be a common practice (in freemium) to give powerful things for money first. But for how long the buyers should have a profit? Or those that do not miss any event? I try to play all events, but there are reasons to miss out something and this can lead to a situation where you are set back extremely only because of that.

    Some decisions were reasoned with a focus on new players. Honestly for new players the situation must be a disaster. They can get Destiny Talis from the shop and that's it. NO other powerful Talisman available!? Without them you also cannot play Gauntlet to the Tier where you get a full set of another powerful one... a vicious circle.

    Concluding massage: The game deserves much more balance and even playgrounds. This would also attract more players - as this game deserves a much bigger playerbase! Night City, Silent Planet and 2 more BNW dungeons are needed to bring in some fresh air and especially make all the Talis available!

    Back on topic:
    - nice event
    - similar thing was made with gold to buy some goodies a while ago
    - bring those events more often!

    Sorry for the long post

    EDIT: in my humble opinion (and from what I read here), the Lilith Frag part of the event is just a trap to burn even more Ironite in the hope to get some souls. In "normal" fragments events we have Lilith frags AND frags for a new char (better let's say for sacrifice) AND higher drop rates for rare souls (still ridiculous low, but higher... 0.25% * 3 = still < 1%)
    Thanks for this Blade.
    I've convinced a friend to start playing, and if I'm frustrated some times, for someone starting the game and seeing so many talismans you cant get anywhere is infuriating, and you he asks my all the time "what's the point?".

    The lack of uber rare talismans that are game changers have recently warded off returning veterans and also new players as you state. The Gauntlet may offer Primordials Valor or Eternals at some point? We all must face these in Arena and Gauntlet, if you dont have a complete set you are crippled. With no way to get these it makes an overwhelmingly unfair and unfun situation for those without them. Most of the funky ones are useless with accuracy up or new burn type, nobody needs these to stay competitive. But the big 3 Primordials Valor and Eternals really make or break a PVP setup.

    I find I seldom play the arena, side from my daily one battle. I was killing time today and played 25 battles. I find the new talismans hard to deal with as well. That's why I'm no longer competitive in the arena and can't get past level A in gauntlet. My roster is growing, but I still shy away from PVP due to not being able to be anything but fish bait for some teams.

    If you run a single Eddie defense and lose all defensive battles you can stay low in the rankings. This way you should win your offensive battles. That way you can earn IC to purchase relics, shards or talis.

    I dont know that if I was starting new if I would stay with the game how the arena the way it is now. The rest of the game would be easier with all the new Eddie's.

    So it's not really a "friend" but rather someone you'd like to frustrate and see if they'll spend money they shouldn't??

    I'd NEVER suggest this "game" to any actual friend. There are simply too many bugs and way, way, way, way too many "pay to play" aspects, especially for new players now.

    Really like this new event. Hopefully will return monthly. Nice alternative to sacrifice for those that don't do continual tier 6+ sacs, and more ways to earn frontier coins is a + development.

    I for one, find the game really enjoyable, even with all the bugs and what not.

    Agreed. Some of these talismans could drop in Talisman Hoard which is useless now. This would help those that missed a particular event. I'm not saying they should drop like crazy there, but at least there should be a chance of them dropping. It would still take some time to get a full set, especially the 6-set ones.

    Another option is they may appear in the Gauntlet - but in this case you already have to be powerful enough to be able to take on the higher teams. So new players are screwed anyway.

    I think it would be good to add them to Talisman Hoard.

    Never though of that, but sounds great!
    Or they could also be added to BNW.
