This is a long, boring video. Hopefully my pain persuades those on the fence to reconsider their goals for this REM. There’s a results summary after the break if you just want to cut to the chase.
Well, that was brutal, but the rates weren’t all that far off from what was expected judging from the data out of JP. At least I got my Pandora.
Am I salty about not rolling Claire? I’d be lying if I said no, but it’s hard to explain the feeling. It’s more about the disappointment of simply not rolling her than actually not being able to use her. I do think we’ll eventually be able to buy her from the MP Shop (and I don’t mean next summer). However, even if we’re given the chance I’m not sure I’ll bite.
All my iTunes credits were about 20% off, but it still hurts being down about $325. I’m relieved that it wasn’t worse. I’m actually not sure how much I would’ve spent to get Pandora before I gave up and I’m glad I didn’t have find out. I was going to limit myself to $500, but who knows if I could’ve followed through.
This was a learning experience, though. No, I’ll still pour money into the game like an idiot, but I’ll hopefully be a bit smarter and selective when picking targets to roll for in the future and setting smaller and stricter budgets for them.
With that in mind, I’m hoping to resist rolling in most of the upcoming collabs, assuming we are actually getting them. After all, Christmas is only about four months away and I have to start saving for Verdandi, Norn of the Presents or whatever other bait they decide to jam into that godforsaken REM.
Oh, one last thing to bitch about. Considering this and the Academy REM, the whole gold vs. silver egg thing is just about meaningless. I mean, I can’t even get excited when I see a gold egg since I know it’s probably going to be crap. They really need to make a new egg type, at least for the 7- and 8-stars, so I can actually be excited when I see an egg pop out of the machine.
