    Maybe it's the smaller sample size, or the lack of canes, but these don't feel like "double the reward of the regular versions". I mean, they were technically free bonuses, so I don't have much room to complain, but... They seem a little disappointing.

    Same here. Definitely not what I was expecting, but still turned out to be a good haul nonetheless!

    Easily the best promotion I’ve ever invested in.

    All in all, it's actually not that bad. Assuming 4cr or so per ticket, my pulls were honestly roughly equivalent to an 'average' set of 20 or so that had candycanes in them in terms of absolute credit value (that is to say, very high). And this is on top of the bonus I got as part of the promotion to begin with.

    I got some minor stuff I needed, like a few crowns, customisation figurines, set of arti pipes (traded in all the christmas-y ones). Very pleased,, though people banking on canes for caches may be upset.

    Good thing there's tons out there for sale!

    There's some Sena math to win you like 3.2 credits per humgii ticket, so those are pretty valuable. And your first one was worth about 40cr, so not bad either.

  • RiellRiell Member Posts: 209 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    Yea, humgii tickets aren't too bad, really.
  • TaryiusTaryius Member Posts: 530 ✭✭✭✭✭ - Grand Achaean
    This exact same response happened last time they did candycanes, I should have been expected that they wouldn't have any. Especially because, I was 98% sure, platinum stockings were supposed to fill New Years Day after the Logosmas shop leaves.

    Average value is 3 per ticket, so there's no way to guarantee more than that, but you can get close (depending on number of tickets, and with some variation between races). With 20 tickets you can get at least 2.5cr per.

    They were fine, still a good return but I assumed wrongly that they may be double canes at least (but nothing else). The pennon will ellude me i fear :P

    Just to be clear, these 'were' golden stockings: they converted over to platinum right after they were filled. I also bought one last set of stockings today and was given a gold (which will presumably not fill). I've issued myself hoping admins might help me out with that and change it to platinum or fill it.

    I got a pipe, a Mayan crown, 20 racetrack tickets, and a figurine, 5 Lucrescent nuts, and a whetstone (no value to me, unfortunately) from my four golden. Will have to wait and see how the tickets actually do (I don't go for the safe bets).

    The majority of my bonus stockings were platinum, though, so I still have 2 fancy and 8 regular to open when those get filled.

    If it makes you feel any better my next bet of 10 tickets didn't pay off.

    A gambling promo that gives gambling tickets to gamble with.

    Basically felt the gold stockings were shit, personally. I got 20 tickets and 2 top hats and a mayan crown and a trait reset. For me, I considered that worse than the 25 stockings I opened, and the only reason they were of any value to me was that I bought caches and got some pieces to redeem.
  • ProficyProficy Member Posts: 350 ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
    Man.... they offer you all a deal, you make out like a bandit, and still complain for more....

    Just saying, these promotions are better than what's normal.... they may not be what YOU want... but I'm 76% sure that 87% of the people are more than happy with them..

    Adrik got a ridiculously good gold stocking and I'm jealous. Clearly he stole your luck.

    I thought only unhung gold stockings turned into platinum after Logosmas?

    They (as in hung gold stockings) all got filled and then converted for some reason because on the admin side of things they wanted there to be no more golden stockings (I had to get one filled manually by staff because I got it during a purchase on Christmas Day, but they seem to have fixed you getting golden stockings now). My understanding is that gold and platinum are equivalent though so it's nothing to be concerned about.

    Yeah, I wanted them pretty badly myself. 200 or so stockings in I gave up and just bought the gauntlets I wanted.
