    I feel ever so slightly robbed by the fancy stockings

    How odd. My regular fancy stockings produced more valuable items than this dang platinum. I got artie tattoos from nearly all the stockings, and an artie vial from this platinum.  :/

    I got a lot of value of out my fancy stockings, predominantly because I wanted artifact tattoos and artifact vials and did not want to pay credits for them.

    I suspect if the fancies had been triggered to grant some probability of an additional draw if the initial piece was lowest tier, and/or granted a second item (like humgii racing tickets) on the non-talisman pieces, it would have had better value and probably a lot more purchases.

    Fancy stockings were good value if you wanted permanent tattoos, and that's about it. If you don't value permanent tattoos at 100cr, they seemed to have only slightly better value than regular stockings, not enough to justify the price difference.

    Man...these extravagant stockings have been pretty unlucky. Except for the one where I got good pieces. A 106 and 87 credit redeem piece out of this one, ugh!

    You open an extravagant stocking and find a Ledolian Surcoat, a featureless ice figurine, a

    inside!

    Two of the stockings I got less credits out of it than if I had just bought credits without a bonus :( That...feels not good at all.
    Yeah I was wholly unimpressed with my extravagants.  But win some / lose some I guess.

    My 14 platinums produced good.  I'll get the full list later but I'm fairly confident I'm over average 90 credits per stocking all said and done

    If we run the promotion again I definitely think it'd be worth considering changing the gold and platinum stockings to give something specific, as the rng component on the bonus stocking seems to be consistently fairly unpopular. Its something we'll think about for next time.

    I do appreciate you guys aren't trying to run us dry with promos that are overall worse than raw credits, most of the time coming out much better, which is really appreciated at least from me, but when I opened an extravagant and got 1 mud piece and 1 glyph piece I still can't sell, and my big stockings were... meh, mostly because I was so excited for the chance for more talisman pieces (Which is probably where my bitterness comes from, these stockings being the same for talisman pieces means I should have just held onto my credits instead of having people buy extravs for me and just BOUGHT the pieces).

    Opening a platinum stocking for a glob that gave me an artefact voucher, an air elemental piece and comms was... Really disappointing. I've backed you guys on these promos before, they've felt like lootboxes done right, since most of the time the talisman pieces come out to being ~50-80% extra credits but bound instead, and after opening my plats/gold I feel like I should have just taken that 40% instead, since by my calcs it would have netted me an extra 3k credits in the end. 

    I don't mind risk, I'm drawn to it, but I definitely would have approached this differently had I known the gold/plats didn't have extra talisman pieces to them, and definitely makes me just want to save up and wait for 40% months and just buy what I need during the risk promos now.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a big boy.  I knew the risks.  Just was hoping y'all saw my bribe :D

    I have only been playing again since late August, but I quite enjoyed December's promotion (September was still my favorite!) because of the sheer fact it was a promotion that seemed more focused on sharing than just spending on me. Sure, I could buy a ton of stockings for myself (and I did), but it gave me the chance to potentially gift friends or city mates credits and artefacts in a holiday themed & fun environment. I can't say much for the higher valued stockings since I stayed on the lower end, but the value generally was above what I would have paid credits wise--dollar for dollar.

    If there were any minor complaints to be had by me, it would have been that I wished the Yggdrasil pieces were released in tandem to the Elemental ones. I would have rather saved up more pieces of the new items versus the old when I opened my first batch of stockings; I do understand the plot was still ongoing so that may have been confusing to release them that early. But in the end I managed to cobble together a Tome of Shaping so I'm happy!

    All right. Opening the last platinum stocking to begin the year with a bang. :smile:

    [OOC]: We're closing in on our guaranteed high-paying stocking - one of the next 50 to be opened is going to contain hundreds of credits in artefacts and gifts!

    Well.

    Shit.

    Sooooooooooo my 14 regular platinums pulled close to 2400 credits, but I'm fairly sure I pulled a jackpot one as I pulled over 700 credits from it alone.  I know I've upgraded from 2s to 3s in my bracelet, belt, and crit in this last batch alone.  

    First promotion I've partook in since early days of them.  For the 450$ invested, I've come back with almost a 4k credit return


    100/10 would do it again as well
