Pumpkin King’s Haunt 2019



Esta is back and needs your help to make her famous Pumpkin Ghoulash for the rest of the Candy Galaxy Corporation. Despite her good intentions, the Great Pumpkin King has his own sinister plans and has taken her Ghoulash. Help Esta get her Ghoulash back and she will reward you with sweet prizes.

How To Participate


The Great Pumpkin King

Beginning October 23, the Candy Galaxy Corporation can be found in the capital cities, Lakrum, and Demaha. Players with a Level 76 character or higher can seek out and speak with Esta to receive the quests to recover the Stolen Pumpkins from the Great Pumpkin King – the more Stolen Pumpkins required by the quest, the higher the reward.

The Great Pumpkin King will be hiding inside various instances. When you find him, you’ll need to defeat him by using Candy Blasts* to blast through his spooky magic in order to recover the Stolen Pumpkins. Esta’s quest is repeatable, so take on the Great Pumpkin King as often as you’d like.

Obtaining these Candy Blasts couldn’t be sweeter ­-- every 10 minutes, you will receive two Candy Blasts in your inventory automatically (up to a maximum of 10 per day). Additional Candy Blasts can be found inside Detonation Stations provided by the Candy Galaxy Corporation scattered around Pandaemonium, Sanctum, Lakrum, and Demaha. These first-come, first-serve Detonation Stations will only appear hourly between 6:00 p.m. -12:00 a.m. server time each day. Additionally, you will be able to purchase 10 Candy Blasts from the Black Cloud Marketplace (once per day) for 240 Black Cloud Coin.

*Note: Instances require different amounts of Candy Blasts depending on the group size.

Instances:

  • Infernal Drakenspire Depths
  • Primeth's Forge
  • Frozen Monolith
  • Bastion of Souls
  • The Veilenthrone
  • Herelym Mine
  • Stellin Development Lab (Easy)
  • Stellin Development Lab
  • Tiamat Stronghold

Spooky Coffin

During the event period you will find a large, spooky Coffin near the Candy Galaxy Corporation. Players with a Level 10 character or higher who try to open this Coffin will be granted a 1-hour buff that provides a 400% bonus EXP boost and 100% bonus drop boost (this boost does not stack with the Amulets).

Candy Queen


Next to the Candy Galaxy Corporation members you will find Kabe, the Candy Master. She may appear to be just a cat, but each day she will hand out a special trick-or-treat goodie bag filled with two Ancient Transformation Potion Chests to players who have a Level 76 or higher character.

Rewards


Once you have recovered all the pumpkins for Esta’s quest, return them to her to collect your rewards! Here are some of the delightful goodies you can receive:


The Great Pumpkin Bundle


Revival Stone (x5)

Administrator's Boon (Single Use) (x2)


Transparent Transformation Scroll (x25)

Tips for Choosing Online Casinos



Online casinos offer all the excitement of gambling without all the hustle and bustle of physically being in a casino. It’s the perfect option for anyone that loves to gamble but hates traveling and being in large crowds. All you need is a computer or mobile device along with an internet connection and you’re ready to play.

Having the freedom to play in the comforts of your own home or most anywhere else anytime you’re in the mood is not the only perk online casinos have to offer. Many of them will occasionally provide players with free rounds to keep you interested along with a number of other great promotional offers.

Once you choose a platform, you’re ready to get started but there are a lot of options available. New Zealand Casinos present the best casino online, but you can also check out Zed's list with the best Canadian online casinos for more options. Before deciding which online gambling site to use, try out several different ones. This will help you find the best site that offers the games you love playing the most.

Many online casinos offer sign on bonuses that allow you to play the games for free, for a limited time, so you can see what they have to offer without risking your own money. Just be sure to go over the details thoroughly before you agree so you know exactly what to expect. You can also take advantage of the demo option to check out the site. When searching for a good online casino, there are a few things to look for that will help you make the best decision.

A good online casino will have:

  • · An easy to understand and fully functional cashier.
  • · Various ways to make deposits and withdrawals.
  • · A fully functional site that’s easy to navigate.
  • · The option of playing anytime day or night.
  • · A reliable site that provides security and data privacy protection.
  • · A legitimate casino license that allows them to legally operate in your country.

Don’t forget to check out the fine print before signing with a casino. You’ll also want to find out how long it has been in business because this is a good indicator of its legitimacy. It’s also a good idea to take the time to check out reviews to see what others have to say about the site.

These tips will help ensure you have the best experience possible when taking advantage of online casinos. Now that you know what to look for, start searching for the one with the games you love most. Once you make a selection, you’re ready to sit back and enjoy.

Upgrade Arcade Returns



Upgrade Arcade is back with refreshed rewards. Spend your Arcade Tokens and enchant the on-screen key. The higher you enchant the key, the better the rewards you’ll get at the end!

How To Play

Arcade Tokens are available on the Black Cloud Marketplace, and we’re giving all players a couple of Tokens to play with.


  1. A survey will be available for players level 76+ for (2) Arcade Tokens. This will be limited to one survey per server per account.
  2. For the duration of the event, Prestige Society Members will receive an additional (2) Arcade Tokens via survey after the maintenance on Wednesday.

The Upgrade Arcade can be accessed by clicking the smiling Shugo icon on the lower righthand corner of your screen. One Token will be consumed each time you play. To begin, click Play to start the mini-game and you'll see the key on the screen change before you. Subsequently clicking Play will continue to upgrade the key and increase the Upgrade Level. There is a chance to fail at each upgrade level, but it’s also possible to get to Upgrade Level 8 on one token! To claim your prize at any level before the upgrade fails or reaching Upgrade Level 8, click Reward and a random item from the tier's prize list will be placed in your inventory.

If your upgrade fails at Upgrade Level 6 or higher, you have two choices—claim your level 1 prize or resume where you left off by using two Tokens! The Resume icon lights up to let you know it can be used, however it can only be used once per play.

As you play the Upgrade Arcade, you will notice the Frenzy Meter filling up. Every token you use to play or resume will fill up the bar. Once the bar is full, Frenzy Mode begins and you have 90 seconds of boosted upgrade chances and additional Frenzy Rewards! Click away!

Every time you fill the Frenzy Meter, you'll fill one of the stars at the top, and when all four are filled you'll instantly receive a random prize from the highest prize tier.

Rewards

The rewards can be viewed in the Upgrade Arcade menu and are distributed randomly from the upgrade tier you end on. Remember, you can claim your reward at any time. If you want that prize at Upgrade Level 6 without risking a failure on your next attempt, hit the Rewards button to claim it right away. Keep in mind that if your upgrade fails and you do not resume playing, through choice or lack of tokens, you will only get a prize from Upgrade Level 1.

Upgrade Arcade will be available until October 23! Play now for a chance at unbeatable rewards.

Aion on the western market and why there is no WoW killer



Over the course of over a decade, many video games, more precisely MMO-RPGs were marketed as "WoW killers" yet, to this day, none of their predictions came true and World of Warcraft is still an undisputed king and reigning champion to this day.

As another internet user eloquently put it, "World of Warcraft is like a massive dam and every other MMO-RPG is just a salmon trying to swim and cross the damn, only to end up being smashed on its walls". With WoW recently launching its Vanilla server and starting everything from scratch, this debate came back to life once more. Turns out nostalgia is a big deal and servers were flooded when retail classic World of Warcraft launched once more. 

People came back running to play the game many of which grew up with. While we can agree that a lot of this popularity came riding on that sweet nostalgia, with people reminiscing the good old days of questing and playing with friends with no worries on their minds, 

that couldn't be the only thing making WoW this popular. It wasn't only nostalgia that made more people come to play reboot of the old franchise more than any other MMO-RPG on the market today. There are a couple of problems anyone who tries making a game to compete with WoW is going to run into. Firstly, simply the fact that every new game markets itself as a "WoW killer" is a nod to WoW's popularity and marketing for them on its own. Making a fresh MMO is a huge feat and requires plenty of resources. 

It's not as simple as making free online porn games. Once such an MMO launches it markets itself offering something new, fresh, innovating and tries to quickly create a huge player base off of that. However, what usually happens is that the initial hype quickly dies off. The game quickly loses a large portion of players and, considering that MMOs are all about large number of players, that number simply continues to drop. 

At that point, the game ends up in one of a couple of scenarios. Some companies go bankrupt and games are abandoned, some break even, going on for some time before pulling the plug before losing any money and then there are those who keep going. 

Aion falls in the third category and is still going strong, which is a success on its own. This third category, even though it doesn't take over the throne, pushes on. Sometimes budget cuts are being made to keep the business going, they might reduce staff, cut on advertising but keep everything afloat. Now, apart from having a competitor, there are multiple minor reasons why Aion wasn't as popular in the western market. Some disliked forced PVP, some didn't enjoy the type of grind to which Asian players are used to or found flying lackluster. 

Others prefer different art style or less RNG and some people simply enjoy playing best lesbian sex games instead.
