    It says right here what you're getting compensated. If you don't get what it says, then that's your answer.

    Yesterday your time is today my time, for me it was posted an hour and a half ago for my time lmao
    Also, the independance day talisman is for the NA fourth of july, since it was our holiday yesterday so makes sense EU wouldn't get one I suppose.

    I do not see how it makes sense that NA got more rewards than EU, it's not like we get any reward on our national hollidays

    That only explains the talisman, NA players also got:
    Full Attack Power Tincture x5
    Full Defense Tincture x5

    EU players didn't get those, so care to try and explain that part? ;) Just leaves EU players feeling under-valued, more so when Nexon gives zero reasons and no explanations as to why NA players get extra compensation. As for the talisman, what about NA players who are currently living in the EU, do they not celebrate July 4th as well?

    The way I see it is, I wouldn't really complain if EU got more compensation that NA did, mainly because I play the game for the things I can do in it and only care about the maint being over, not the things I get for how long it takes them to complete maint. I'm sure everyone plays games differently, but, to me those compensations are just miscellaneous things that, impo, aren't really that good since they're the same compensation, over and over again. It would be different if we got different compensation each time, but we don't. If it's such a big deal to get the same things, there's support tickets you can sumbit, but other than that, there's no game out there who gets things perfect, or who doesn't mess up, no matter how many times. That's just how the gaming business is.

    Seems you don't get why EU players aren't happy about that compensation, it's not about the actual items given out it's about the fact that NA players were given a "larger" compensation package and yet Nexon gave no explanation or reason why. As you said, the talisman was probably for July 4th, but as I said, there are plenty of Americans living in various parts of Europe who also celebrate July 4th but it seems they don't qualify as far as Nexon is concerned!

    In the majority of other games I've played over the years the game devs work damn hard at communicating with their player communities, especially when problems occur. Nexon doesn't, those playing RoI via Steam are now complaining that Nexon hasn't posted anything to the Steam Community Page for some time. News posts and announcements are somewhat hit and miss around here, some weeks we get a post about maintenance and some weeks we don't. We don't even have a Community Manager anymore, not since PuffyHuff (who replaced Cuddles) just vanished back around January/February of this year.

    You are correct that there's "no game out there who gets things perfect, or who doesn't mess up, no matter how many times" but the vast majority work very hard at getting as close to perfect as they can. Nexon just doesn't seem to care either way, it's been almost two weeks since the screw up during the Icarus Day Hourly Giveaway log-in event and the latest update is that the issue is still "under investigation" by Nexon Devs.

    But hey, no point making a big deal out any of this right? ;)
