R-78 Posted February 10 Share Posted February 10 (edited) NEW YEAR CARDS 2023 It is now possible to redeem your New Year Cards! Some history, feel free to skip. First of all... Thanks to everyone for not asking me everyday about NYCs, I appreciate :'D (got asked 4 times on the first day but then it was relatively calm). Some of you may remember, I decided to make some use of NYC for the first time in 2018. Before that, NYC were totally useless, and the only response ever given to "What are NYC used for?" was "To wish your friends a happy new year". Since then, I've made a different event for NYCs every year. And every year, the NYCs became easier and easier to farm. This was in order NOT to make it unfair between the new players and old veterans who keep saving their NYCs from previous Christmas events. And that is also the reason why I always suggested everyone to use their NYCs as long as they see an use in it, and never think that way "Okay that's cool but I'm expecting something better next year so I will save my NYCs for now". I only did one mistake: that is the NYC drop rate on Gulgus-Gue during Christmas Event 2021. My idea was to make NYCs farmable in every level (that does not already involve an Olga Flow) but I miscalculated the top ratio of Gulgus-Gues that you can farm in a given time. So I had to nerf Gulgus-Gue drop rate by a 1.8 factor this year, and this is the only time NYC drop rate ever got nerfed (while all the other 9 NYC locations drop rates were slightly buffed). I don't know if I will keep doing NYC events every year, but in any case we'll need to empty the server of them now. Making them any easier will just result in a hassle to store your hundreds of NYCs and services prices increases. It is hard to make things balanced as it changes every year, and make it so everyone can get something cool (regarding the huge disparities between players...) instead of just the rich ones. So back to the main subject: For this 6th New Year Cards edition, 3 services are available. HIT ADDITION Redeem 10 NYC to add 5% hit on any of your weapons Cannot exceed 80% hit No attributes relocation Can reset any attribute to 0% if needed / wanted Cannot be added to ES weapons (commonly referred as "S-rank weapons") SPECIAL ADDITION Redeem 15 NYC to add or change the Special of your choice Must be a weapon that has no default special ES weapons are excluded Only common specials can be added (no Zalure etc) As a reminder, here are the available high tier specials: Hell (one hit kill) Chaos (confusion) Blizzard (ice element) Burning (fire element) Tempest (electric element) Arrest (paralysis) Gush (HP steal) Geist (TP steal) King (XP steal) Demon (%HP reduction) Spirit (TP sacrifice) Berserk (HP sacrifice) Charge (meseta sacrifice) SUPER RAFFLE It's been since the first NYC event in 2018 that we didn't do a raffle. But unlike that one, this time there is NO LIMIT on how many NYCs you can bid into the raffle, however you are allowed only ONE REWARD MAX per person.

Example: Slicer of Fanatic 100h isn't a possible prize if the community bid less than 5,000 NYCs. The total number of bidden NYCs will not be public, so it is pointless to wait and see where this gets before you bid. Whenever you hand NYCs to us for the raffle, make sure to tell us your Forum name. If the profile does not exist, you will not be able to claim your prize. You will automatically get attributed a range of ticket numbers. On March, I will roll random numbers live on Ultima official discord between 1 and the last attributed number. The order of these numbers decides the order from which players are to pick their prize. If a generated number lands on a player who already won something, it gets ignored. This goes on until all rewards are depleted or there are no more participants. You are not allowed to have other people bid your own NYCs as separate persons. CONSOLATION PRIZES You will receive some Donation Tickets if you bid more than 77 NYC but were not lucky enough to get any of the above rewards. Consolation prize is calculated from the following: DTs = ⌊(X-70)/8⌋ with X the number of NYC you bid. Examples: - You bid 63 NYCs, got no reward. Not eligible for consolation prize. - You bid 524 NYCs, got no reward. Receive 56 DTs as consolation prize. You have until February, 28th of 2023 to place bids for the raffle. You have until October, 31st of 2023 to redeem hit or specials. ATTENTION: All New Year Cards will get erased after these, so make sure to use ALL OF THEM. Feel free to ask a GM (mostly Fyrewolf5 or R-78) for NYC redeems. (Remember I'm much more responsive on Discord R-78#0078) If you wish to redeem Donation Tickets as well, let we know so we can do all at the same time. Do not wait for the last day to redeem your NYCs with a GM, we won't be responsible for your loss if you cannot catch a GM in the last minutes. Any question, feel free to ask here or via PM.
