Now let's come back to LaTale, with our marvelous 'Free Astro Abusers'.
These people thought it would be LULZTEHAWESOME to reap the Free Astro System for more than it was intended, thus leading to a large loss in sales on for OGP, thus causing them to investigate. Obviously, there was a mass ban on all the frauders, and now, with so much lost money, they have nothing to do, but increase the money they pull in, and decrease the money they give away to their players.
Funny, we shouldn't have the problem anymore since people who abused free offers are banned no?
And it's not their fault that they don't give out prizes like they did back then, in order for us to enjoy the game for ourselves, we all need to be honest and devoted to the company that provides it, why should we expect them to be generous to us when all we did was take away from them?
I'm not sure if I should laugh or facepalm at this comment due to how OGP is solely treating players like moneybags and not even bothering to fix up their games. Isn't PvP still broken? I'm not sure about some of the guild quests, but that too maybe? (Don't forget how SS5 quest came out bugged which caused them a huge work overload)
If anything, while the prizes may have decreased from former customer appreciation events (see xmas + the other one held a while ago), this event in comparison is a drastic change in 'appreciation'. Where's appreciation for people who even spend $10~30 normally a month? Zero. I can understand them for wanting sales, but, this is certainly not encouraging players who'd normally spend $10~30 a month to suddenly spend $20 more just for the lowest tier prize.
By all means, if their goal is just to be like, oh okay, you spent $50 on us this month, here, have this little gift. That's fine.
But if their goal is to get people to spend more money than usual, their advertising scheme is fail.
