Your income mainly comes from crafting dishes. I don't think you can make much from selling fishes alone.
My take on this, whoever is actively searching for these Santas is pretty dumb. Do you know why ? Because the event happen to coincide with the fishing patch. This patch brought up all kinds of new gathering material. You should be investing your time at gather nodes because this is where the money at, finding Santas on the way will become a bonus NOT an objective. That is exactly how I did it, I have found 2 fatties in the process (3 hours total maybe). Even if I haven't found any I'd still make a killing with the gathered material which by the way has netted me close to 80k worth.
What caused them to change? New management. It's really not as complicated as some make it out to be.

I am sorry, but something is really up with this event. You have a whole bunch of people saying that they can't find any or barely any fat santas yet you have some people saying they are finding them all over. Have the exploits been fixed? I keep wasting hours on this and just went through 5 different sectors even going to 6 different channels. I found about 10 tiny santas and no fat santas. How is this even any fun? The tiny santas give just the most sad of rewards yet they even barely spawn. If it's true that the fat santas keep spawning around the same area, then someone, has done something up with the code or messed up the "randomness" of it. With the anniversary event, I could at least find a few guys in an hour.

i was also wondering where, but it doesn't work for me, do you need special bait or something? or do you need to stand in a specific spot?

The main reason I included the picture was to show that the angle in wich you gotta fish is a bit.. specific. (otherwhise I could have just said, there's a pond with fish near the npc that starts the storyline quest for fishing)

Just keep on trying and you'll eventually find the right angle.
I am trying to complete the Santia's Workshop Quest
I got to the point were i was given Craft Kit and Desgin:Xermetal Ingot item
I got all the required materials

but i cant use the it...and cant complete quest

Why bother having the event when you find like 2 small santas in 1 hour IF YOU ARE LUCKY. The only place where i found a fat santa was outside frontera, but that is where everyone else is also searching because that is the only place with some santas. And not even many at that. PLEASE Increase santa spawns so we players don't have to waste hours to find one lil santa who gives useless snowflake bombs...
I hate new UI only for 1 thing. That you need to click 3 times for everything.

System got a new algorithm that auto adjust performance if you are in a few people area. You get all FPS that you want, Thats cool. But lag and FPS drops still the same if lag attacks you. Or there are too many players in same area or party

I love it as starting point for now . Make level 70 exclusive for 439 characters

All dugens 439 going to be level 70 only. But players can keep progression in level 65 -69 dugens. The 431 and 412 ones.

Will be like a real gear progression system if they do that.

Only bad point here is that, level 62 to 64 dugens, must be opened to 66 and 69 level players.if remains 65 only, no one is going to be able help new players to hit level 65.
At the moment i got the tier 5 rod and tier 5 whiskers,the gold dump wasn't that bad for those so far but getting any higher will cost A LOT of gold and time. My main question or concern is if i spend 300k for the T7 upgrade,or even 1MIL for the last T8 upgrade,would it change anything besides getting a couple more filets and Anglers tokens per hour? at the moment i can still go gather 2-3 nodes for gathering and still make more gold than i would in 20 minutes of fishing lol. I do enjoy fishing but not enough to throw away all of my gold to fish for filets and tokens(that you will barely need if your not upgrading rod anyway) that gain little to no gold but i hoped that i was missing something in my search for the rewards of going through the time and pain of farming a T8 rod haha.

Maybe they just left All existing gears avaliable for level 65 to 70, except that the leveling to 70 will be painful for casual tera players or people that dont learn about the game. (Crystals, rolls, ilv, jewelry , etchings etc.)
It supossed to be 439 ilv to being able for leveling through 70..
Then in four months All op gears will be level 70 only.

Forcing even more player divisions, might be, People who wants level 70 must work their gear to 439 like Apex.
Sound like a good milking money way for me.

Selling fishing crates or BAF fish per gold is only possible via fishing merchants.

But there is a daily vanguard that gifts you 500 gold free bait and 20 angler tokens if you catch 10 fish with your char. If you have more than 8 characters. Or even more you can get 8x or x12 the vanguard reward. Thats a lot fo angler tokens , bait and gold for free.
That's a very good point. We should just wait til next week and see before spending any money then :P
The build comes out next week, so probably all will be revealed then anyway. But from the sounds of things so far, it seems like the gear upgrade ladder will not be undone, and will just keep moving forward despite the level cap increase.

(On the plus side, whatever notice we get from observing what happens in K-TERA next week is a heck of a lot better than what players there get.)

What happened to make them change so much now?

I definitely do not know why -- only people who work there can really say. But if I had to guess, I would assume that TERA PC became less strategically important for the company. Remember, back in the day the entire EME office (50+ people) were all focused on TERA PC, including three full-time community people just for this game. It was their first major project and they had to build up all their team and processes from scratch. Now, the amount of people fully-focused just on TERA PC is probably down to a half-dozen or so. The community team is now shared over all the titles, although certain people have a bit more of a focus on one game or another. Some of the old TERA producers like Denom are now focused on TERA Console, where EME is the global publisher (not only NA), so probably given a bit more priority (it's new, they have more say/control, and it's their first console project).

If you're going to manipulate a game's progression flow, it requires on-going attention to monitor and keep on adjusting with every new build that arrives. Doing it well requires people with deep knowledge of the game's economy, full understanding of current and upcoming patches, and experience with all the backend systems. And I suspect EME management doesn't see the value of all doing that when balancing the game's progression should truthfully be BHS's job (if BHS did a good job, none of the publishers would have to adjust anything). So instead, they've seemingly decided they're okay with taking the "hate" and sending the harsh feedback to BHS so that maybe they'll learn. In the meantime, they just do what they can within reason to keep the game profitable and keep people engaged, without stepping on BHS's toes or "covering" for their failures.

Anyway, it's a bit of a side-topic for this particular thread. This particular event is just an extension of this apparent overall strategy.
...could we get an official response from EME about whether we're wasting time upgrading our current gear or not?

I realize it's unlikely, seeing as HO takes massive effort and it hasn't been that long since it was added, but still.. better safe than sorry!

@seandynamite @KitTeaCup , anyone?
So, I bought the CE back in 2012 and stopped playing shortly after, and decided to give it a try to fill some dead time.
Had to move to a new server to play with a friend and I have no clue if there is any way to claim the white lion mount in the new char -my old character is still well and alive and has the mount-.

Besides that, can anyone point me to any source of info about the changes of the game from 2012 until now? Barely remember a few things and I'm super lost.

you miss all the best of tera and now stuck with the worst of tera ;)

Same here. It doesnt show that it hits the target.
It almost threw me off balance at first coz.. after fusion, comes implosion.
For several times, i thought i missed the attack, or maybe BHS changed it to be like the iceberg fusion. U know, that big ice attack that goes to the side or back instead heading forward straight to the boss? Hmmm...
I would say, the main things they appear to worry about (and try to prevent) now are:

1) anything that would fundamentally change or alter the flow/pacing of BHS's intended endgame progression (now or in the future)
2) anything that would undermine the value/worth of items they sell on the cash shop
3) anything else that could have lasting consequences down the road

I absolutely cannot imagine what caused them to take this route, though.

You were here back in 2014, Counterpoint. You must still remember when EME was celebrated while GameForge was reviled; back then, having easier leveling and frequent generous events was one of the big reasons that EME had so much goodwill (the other being Tonka and Minea). Back then, GF was the one that did nothing to fundamentally change BHS's intended progression, and while some people laughed at EME for it, the population numbers and popularity of the two publishers spoke for themselves. Now, the situation is reversed, and people are touting GF as the far superior publisher for their more generous events.

Keeping to KTERA's progression doesn't work for player retention, and most players don't give a a crap about people using multiple accounts or whatever. This was something that EME should have learned years ago. What happened to make them change so much now?

See, this is why it'll never change. Thanks for the data though.

Just thinking about all of the stuff I could buy with $200. Even though she dodged the dud prizes, none of that really seemed worth the cost. If only I liked bright green, but I don't. I am not trying to be mean, but $25 for meta chests, gold talents and weapon skins. smh Even the pale writer dress just leaves me wonder, "what were they thinking?" Sorry, but I just don't get it.

I've had the EMP saved from the Black Friday sale for this purpose. Can't convert it back into cash now after seeing the actual prizes, unfortunately.

But yeah, not recommending the boxes to anyone else given my data, even if I managed to dodge the worst of it.
Hey, I'm playing TERA on and off for years and just wanted to ask you how is UI doing performance-wise? Is it less laggy now when opening windows?
 Data on Christmas Boxes 12/15/2018, 12:48 AM notDre
I have a lot of money in my steam wallet from CSGO trading, I purchased the 20 boxes, plus 5 boxes, I can't 100% remember what I got but I'll try for the sake of this post :

Golden Talent ×4000 (x2)
Gloomscale
Battle Thrush (x2)
Heaven or Hell Costume Bundle
Dyeable Flight Suit Smart Box (plus all accessories including a Turbocharged Chrome Weapon Skin) (x5)
Empowering Catnap Innerwear (x3)
Fortified Catnap Innerwear (x2)
Deus Irae Smart box (x2)
Hellsworn Smart box
Arcane Afterglow Smart Box
Spellweave Costume Box (x3)
Metamorphic Emblem Chest (x2)

I did not get dyads a single time. In my opinion it was worth it, I can trade all the stuff for gold which from my understanding the rate is about 1 mill = 100$ of EMP anyway and I've already made 2 mill from selling some of the items so that's already 200$ of gold conversion and I haven't even sold half of the stuff I got yet, and I need a ton of gold to enchant HO. Going even further in the future with all the gold I made I could always buy emp with it later if I wanted. You get a year of elite which is 180$ per year anyway, and the little extra perks on the side are just bonuses to me. Also I should mention you DO have a chance of getting the 100,000 or 50,000 EMP which even if it doesn't happen well.. you can't win if you don't play. If you do get that, that's insane value.

We saw this with the gem crates. For whatever reason, with this game it has become a "Those who mind don't matter" situation: we on the forums (Reddit is hilariously slow and I don't know how the other social platforms are doing) find some "techniques" from EME underhanded and outright stupid, but we aren't the ones buying literal scores of the things in question so our concerns seem to be brushed aside.

I'm sure you don't need me to finish that analogy.

I doubt my opinion is even a blip on the radar at this point, since I barely log in anymore and just check in every week or so. It seemed like things were turning around for a good minute, but now idk.

Heck, to get the title you have to gift 25 of those things. That's 500 dollars.

...Not that it fully helps, but it's 20 boxes, and about $340. That tier also gives you a year of Elite, which would normally cost between $120 to $180 (depending on if you still have the promo price). So, net cost for the 20 gifts (assuming you would have bought Elite anyway) is between $160 and $220.

I'm still not saying it's worth it. But it's also not like you're spending $500 for a title.

You're right, my bad. It is 20. The rates could vary depending on how many you buy at once, but done "smart," I suppose you really can get out of paying a full 500 dollars if you buy EMP in bulk. So, my bad. You can get a used* nintendo switch and one game for that price.

I don't know. I don't see any DPS increase after using it though. Anyway, it could be of what you said but hopefully EME/BHS is aware and looking into it.

What exactly are they worried about? Marketplace crashes or whatever the hell? I remember before you said that's why they got rid of the monthly grab bags for having elite status (and I recall my rebuttal saying how something's wrong when the first thing people think when acquiring an item is how much it'll sell for...).

I would say, the main things they appear to worry about (and try to prevent) now are:

1) anything that would fundamentally change or alter the flow/pacing of BHS's intended endgame progression (now or in the future)
2) anything that would undermine the value/worth of items they sell on the cash shop
3) anything else that could have lasting consequences down the road

With the Elite gift, though, I wouldn't say it was only that. Part of it was certainly also the drama it caused every month. But also, monthly gifts aren't possible anymore because they decided to make Elite vouchers with variable quantity (like 1-day, 3-day, etc.), so they had to switch everything to the daily gift boxes instead. Only way they could bring something like a monthly gift back now (without changing stuff in backend systems) would be to give a token each day in the daily gift box, and after <x> days you can trade for a prize... and then that makes one more merchant they have to maintain and keep up to date.

With blue box catalyst stuff, I assume part of the problem was that their business plan for that event included selling catalysts, but they made it so easy to earn massive amounts (due to blue box exploits) that it was objectively worse to spend money. I'm guessing that meant the event didn't meet its revenue targets (whether the event should have had a revenue component in the first place is another discussion, but for better or worse it did). Also, people were holding onto catalysts so that, in the next catalyst event (if the prizes were good) they could immediately dump all their catalysts to get all the best prizes right away without actually having to either pay or play the game at that time (which is also part of the point of the catalyst event). That's also why, after the next catalyst event, they wiped all unused catalysts (so future events would get a fresh start). So anyway, the blue box catalyst thing in particular was complicated.

With this santa event... my guess is just because it drops progression items, and because the event is going to run for weeks. That's why, as I said, they need a soft-cap/"grand prize" system (or to run more time-limited, but grander events so it feels more worth it).

SageWindu wrote: »
So my guess is that the devs (yeah, not blaming EME for this one, not entirely) still don't understand that they created a game that seems to encourage alt-farming, but then they get upset when people actually do it. I remember a while back someone bragged about how they made 10 or so brawlers specifically for farming (this was back when they could outDPS the DPS classes). The game allows a person to do this, but BHS wants to get mad at a player maximizing their potential gains from this feature? That's insane!

Well, to be clear, in this case I wasn't really talking about alt-farming, but about various kinds of exploits that made it much easier than intended to find and claim maximum boxes as soon as they spawned. (And, no, it's not "made up." But it's also not a justification, because there are other ways around that problem, as I said.)

That said, maintaining a balance between casual and hardcore players is important for a lot of reasons, just like maintaining a balance between people who want to have one character and those who want to have many characters. I think the main point is that they often get this balance wrong. Part of it is, as you say, a lack of foresight. Part of it, I suspect, is the lack of built-in tools/features that would make it easier to build events that take this into account, and so the amount of extra time/effort it would take to build it.

Heck, to get the title you have to gift 25 of those things. That's 500 dollars. You could buy a nintendo switch, a copy of smash ultimate, a gamecube controller, gamecube adapters, another 60 dollar game, and still have 50 dollars left over to cover the sales tax, which would still leave you with about 15 dollars left over.

... Or you could have a 'whale' title. :)
Once you get into Twistshard you will need to use Golden Talents for enchanting. Frostmetal will require you to use Golden Darics for enchanting (can be crafted as part of Smelting profession, Artisan level, from 5 x Golden Talents). Finally, once you get into Stormcry you will need to use Golden Plates for enchanting (can be crafted as part of the Smelting profession, Mastery level, from 5 x Golden Darics).

Golden Talents, Golden Darics and Golden Plates can all be traded and sold. As are the r ubies, sapphires, emeralds and diamonds (explicitly ignoring amethyst and pearls since they have no use for gear progression).

At some point you will want to upgrade your jewelry... for that you will require Silver Talents, Silver Siglos and Silver Plates. Silver Siglos and Silver Plates are part of the Processing profession and require Artisan level and Mastery level respectively. All three of these materials can be traded and sold.

Welcome back to the game!

Im gonna keep saying this. The whole point of the gifting center is to have some like, getting into the spirit of gifting, but even i would be discouraged to see such an underwhelming "reward" as a gift for my friends.

I as the one who gifts, do not wanna see my friends getting something they can get in minutes, nor i wanna be gifted the same if someone is kind enough to give me a gift box.

The dyads need to go poof.
Thank you for your hard work and valuable time.
I believe OP wants to know how to directly turn fishing into gold without having to craft the dishes.

ignore the 'guardians' part. the main idea here is a training dummy.

like the upcoming "adventure token" system .. the idea isnt "adventure tokens" its a stamina system. im sure you get the jist =]

Not only that Santas are being killed by the NPCs all over the world but they also seem to despawn since i have seen a few despawning before i could attack them..

Same here, even with the tiny santas. I did a few more hours hunting yesterday, but now, I've just given up. It just gets old hearing that everything has to be so rare, because EME is allowing exploiters to ruin the game. Plus, I do think a lot of the exploiting stories are simply made up to justify EME being so stingy. I was hunting during that entire Blue Box event, and I didn't see all of the exploiters being pointed to over and over again. They say it was all about cheats showing people where the boxes were, but there were no cheats needed once you farmed the same area 20 times, you just knew where they were spawning. That event was probably one of the best events we have played, so telling everyone they'll never do an event like that again because of exploiters is sad.

The anniversary event was fun to, and mostly everything available wasn't even sellable. Anyone exploiting that event just hurt their bank storage.
I'd rather their entire loot table be untradable than them be limited so severely. Then, they don't have to worry about people exploiting anything and there are no more excuses from here, there and everywhere. There are so many ways to earn gold now, so maybe seeking events just won't be one of them.

Yep , i believed it was a bug. After BAF correction patch, remains exactly the same. If you sell 3 items to a fish merchant in exchange for gold. You cannot do it again for 24 hours xd. In your account.
.If rod were tradeable and you have many accounts might works the 4.5k per account.

Guess devs already know the exploit possibilities.

For farm tokens it works get a better rod. Cause every high tier fish gift you a lot of Angler tokens. And 500 gold every 10 fish. If you have 12 characters you can share your rod. And get 500 gold x12 while fishing for angler tokens.
Still a good way to make free gold.

interesting, So you dont sell the fish to the fishing merchant, but to the regular merchants? or do you talk about the vanguard? isnt selling high grade fish to a regular merchant would be better?
The same was stated in the thread created days ago.
> @Serenade said:

True but you need almost 5 gaming PC executing TERA, at the same time to share between accounts.

Thats imposible, no person going play TERA live , with 5 keyboards, Mouses or televisions . Xd, too much wasted money or extreme fanatism.

My partner, with whom we were running our sites, decided, that he will run them without me.

However, i'm the actual coder of the site's engine and all the tools related to the parsing of the game data, while he was only making the site's design and doing some miscellaneous tasks i was giving him. Honestly, i don't know, what he was thinking, because without me he can't update or develop the sites further. But that's in the past now. I've registered a new domain name teralore.com, got myself new powerful server and moved the site here. Everything was copied here from the old site, with the exception of the forum and it's user names. The passwords were changed unexpectedly and i didn't had a recent copy of the database. Sorry about that, guys. Everything else was located on my development PC and now is here on this new server, including the comments, screenshots and skill builds.

As usual you can expect from me updates, fast response on your bug reports and further development of the site!

If you have doubts or questions about this situation, please see this thread: https://redd.it/7lki7o I've explained everything there in more details in regards of my other site, but this is true for all of them.

I have been using your database without knowing you are the hero behind the scene. Thank you for your amazing work!

Party/Group gather was one of those fun and amusing features, especially in dungeons when you need to gather things, and now you have to run multiple times to get what you need because 4 other people need the item too and you can't all gather it (Side note, the weapon chests in CR appear as grass).

On the same subject, it would be nice to get exp from gathering again as well, just so that I feel like I am making progress while gathering, like gathering is a part of the game, on a lower level character as opposed to feeling like I am wasting my time gathering, but hey it's shiny so I need to!

See, this is why it'll never change. Thanks for the data though.

And that is hard to understand...


In my case, i wanted to get a few gift boxes along with some extra popo bait but the thought that i can get dyads makes me angry and it will escalate further if that thought will become reality.

Anyway, why would you upset a portion of your buyers and drive them away when your business could be flourishing?
Dyads ( that are useless and nobody wants them ) in a package that costs real money.


This is like the lottery selling coupons and advertisting that some of them are not actual coupons and will not be included in the lottery system.


p.s. popo bait might be the better choice
RNG/Gambling is the heart of Tera. I will never buy scratch off ticket rng boxes to get the item I want. I will buy the item off of the broker.

I tried to complete fishing quest in different characters, after sold my 3 daily items quest sell a fish crate 1, to a merchant. I 've tried with a four character, but surprise, you can only sell 3 items per account. Every 24 hours.

Yep , i believed it was a bug. After BAF correction patch, remains exactly the same. If you sell 3 items to a fish merchant in exchange for gold. You cannot do it again for 24 hours xd. In your account.
.If rod were tradeable and you have many accounts might works the 4.5k per account.

Guess devs already know the exploit possibilities.

For farm tokens it works get a better rod. Cause every high tier fish gift you a lot of Angler tokens. And 500 gold every 10 fish. If you have 12 characters you can share your rod. And get 500 gold x12 while fishing for angler tokens.
Still a good way to make free gold.
Not only that Santas are being killed by the NPCs all over the world but they also seem to despawn since i have seen a few despawning before i could attack them..
I am afraid like probably many other players since we live with the thought that "i can be the one" and get a sweet dyad reward ( i also do not like the metamorphic one ).

Maybe, we will see the dyads and metamorphic emblems removed so we can get gift boxes with some ease at heart but then that will be unfair to those that already got dyads and metamorphic emblems.


What a shame...

Sacred Hammers were removed from the BC shop with the most recent patch...was this intended? PVPers need a way of farming +3 as well.
The gathering section was updated as well. But the materials for each gatherable object were added manually back then. It will take some time for me to update that data.

Almost every single time theres a 25% chance to get a dud. Oof. Lucky you dodged most of those.

Amethysts and Pearls to my knowledge have no use anymore, so I wait until I have a stack of them and sell to the NPC. Depending on if you are going to get into crafting (Alchemy - which makes the gems) depends on rather you save them or sell them. You need Emeralds for enchanting Frostmetal ( I'm pretty sure Twistshard requires no gems to enchant) and you can make Emeralds by crafting but you have to turn Rubies into Sapphires and then Sapphires into Emeralds. Then once you get to higher gear you will need Diamonds, which you make by using Emeralds. So since you're leveling, if you need gold you could sell stacks of Rubies on the trade broker or if crafting is something you want to do I would save them.

If you have a character that is master in Smelting, you can create Fish Crates V, which sell to the fishing merchant for 1.5k each. since you can sell 3 daily, thats 4.5k daily.

There is also a merchant that exchanges high grade fish for meta tokes. The higher the grade of the fish, the more tokens you can get, and you can turn in 300 daily. and of course, you need a higher tier rod for that.

I dont know where i saw someone, probably in the tera discord, saying that with the highest grade rod, he or she was making like thousands upon thousands of gold daily. I would need to check.

But as far as im concerned, higher grade rod = higher grade fishes = more angler tokens per catch = you can gear up a couple of fishing rods for alts and make fish crates V and turn them in on each alt for 4.5k daily.
well, im still need one infinity cupon for upgrade energetic onset

Back in the early P2W days, when we hunted Caimans for glasses or anniversary boxes for other stuff, it wasn't anything near this bad.

Yeah, it's because back in the day, they didn't yet realize just how badly it was being exploited. It was the blue box that dropped catalysts that actually caused them to figure out just how bad it was (because they could easily add up how many catalysts people earned from them). Ever since then, basically, blue boxes and caimans have been really limited in terms of what they can drop.

The lack of foresight from both BHS and EME amazes me sometimes.

What exactly are they worried about? Marketplace crashes or whatever the hell? I remember before you said that's why they got rid of the monthly grab bags for having elite status (and I recall my rebuttal saying how something's wrong when the first thing people think when acquiring an item is how much it'll sell for...).

So my guess is that the devs (yeah, not blaming EME for this one, not entirely) still don't understand that they created a game that seems to encourage alt-farming, but then they get upset when people actually do it. I remember a while back someone bragged about how they made 10 or so brawlers specifically for farming (this was back when they could outDPS the DPS classes). The game allows a person to do this, but BHS wants to get mad at a player maximizing their potential gains from this feature? That's insane!

Happy Holidays to all!!!
Site update:
- All language sections updated up to the latest version of the game.
- Added the "EP Enhancements" section.
- Added the "Fish" and "Fishing rods" submenus into the "Items" menu.
I opened a box for myself yesterday and just narrowly dodged getting dyads.
We get BAF bait from emp store,and the cost of a high tier rod ends up in the millions in costs,but what does it really give back from putting the time and gold into it? i looked around and can not find anything you can do with higher tier/more BAFs that you can not do with a tier 2 or 3 rod..(for cooking especially, since the main thing is gathering anyway..why?) is fishing just a waste of time and gold?
it's such a classic event and it's always enjoyable, this year though... people have been searching for hours, literally hours, and not found a single santa. it's kinda discouraging and pointless.
what maps do they spawn on anyway? I have spent like 5 hours and haven't seen any, in several maps lol pls halp
When a lot of players quit, the remaining players will be squeezed that much harder to cover the bill.
Have fun, folks! Don't forget to spend 500 dollars to get your title!
What about the rubies, amethyst and such? Should I sell them for easy gold or keep them for later on? And is it worth gather everything I see or is it not worth?

They’re not going to change the gift reward when people have already spent money. Maybe next year.

While it's true elins are where the money is it doesn't excuse the fact they made the special account bound costume for spending a bunch of $$$ locked to a race. It's a dumb idea.

Are the infinity mask coupons bankable/usable on other characters? Or are they soulbound like the masks?

They're soulbound/unbankable
Why would it be a joke? It makes perfect sense and seems absolutely fair. Convert 4 masks you didn't want into one you do want, or lower that amount to 2 if you happen to have a worse mask of the same line as the one you want. Avoiding RNG has a price and this is a perfectly fine one.

Plus, it blocks players from obtaining Infinity Masks without being able to clear the content that actually drops said tier of mask.

It doesn't make any sense imo because the masks are simply too rare. And you can get infinity masks from rng battleground boxes so your argument of "blocking players that aren't able to clear content" is moot. Imagine you already have an onset mask that took you ages to get by dismantling 4 other onset masks (that's my situation rn). Then you start doing aah/glsh/drch and you have to go through two infinity masks to upgrade your onset while most people just get the right infinity mask right away. It's a dumb system, 1 infinity mask should be more than enough.

I would totally agree with you and think it's fair if the masks were less rare, but as they are right now... haha no.

They could have used the same login structure as the Tanly event - give keys on login that are used to open santa boxes, and make Santas more plentiful and good rewards more frequent. Make the contents untradable if you're really afraid of alt farming.

15 boxes is around the price of a Switch, unless you saved up EMP from the Thanksgiving event just for this purpose.

Rather than buying the boxes, it's so much better to just gift people copies of Smash or Red Dead Redemption 2 for much less.

Agreed.

The biggest problem i have with their optimization is that its extremely unreliable when it comes to resetting my settings back to what it was. Half of the time it works , but the other half of the time, my graphics will stay crappy until i manually adjust it again.

I don't do big PVP events. Biggest group event i do is that gutrends thing and flying, and i don't have a problem with fps in any of these.
and even if my fps dips, let that be my choice, maybe i prefer pretty graphics.

I'm making this topic in hopes that those of us with more money than sense (like myself) can share data on the rates that items appear in lootboxes, so others can be better informed. Even if you don't have screenshots of the box openings and all four cards, even just the results can help people gauge the worth of these boxes as well.

Here's the results of my 10 lootboxes:
