    I upped the encounter rates because there was an error causing the encounter rate to be incredibly low when it relaunched. The encounter rates now are the exact same as the first four hours of the event. The configuration of the event is the exact same. There are no differences. We do not adjust drop rates mid-promotion.

    I am now locking this thread, as well, as it is redundant.


    (as a side note: reserve the right to make changes as we see fit, when we see fit. This is in our terms and services. While we don't change configurations mid-promotion, we can extend and shorten events as we see fit. In this case, by popular demand, we resumed the event after the short hiatus.)

    Clear lies about policy on drop/appearance rates

    In a thread concerning the second Gaznar event after many players had completed the first event which was 4-hours long, a second event was made which lasted 19-hours (There was no boss reset meaning people who took part in the first event could not then take part in the second event), Aaron clearly stated, "I'll up the encounter rates." for the second 19-hour event, in comparison to the rates in the first event. This then means players who did not take part in the first had a clear advantage in the second event.
    In a separate, now closed thread, Aaron was asked whether Kabam alter drop-rates mid promotion. This was his response, "We do not. Once an event or promotion is up, we leave it as it started.". He could have argued he was correct in that statement if the two previously mentioned events were separate, thus requiring all players to participate in BOTH. He, however then later stated on a different thread, again concerning the Gaznar event, "There will be no reset, and there will be no compensation for those players who are upset because the event was extended.". Here is says his view that the event was extended therefore he altered the rates mid event.

    Can we have clarification whether this was just an outright lie that Kabam do not alter rates mid-event, Aaron getting confused or yet another mistake from Kabam.
    Unfortunately credibility comes into question again.

    (All events which Aaron responded to were subsequently locked, preventing me from responding on one of those and forcing me to make a new thread. Sorry guys)
