  • Royal Winter Seals are Pay-to-Win... Buff the events!

    For those that don't know, you can obtain Royal Winter Seals by using a Winterfest Cracker on someone; an event starts where 5 seals spawn in the world and you have 30 seconds to collect them like any other event.

    The issue is, the final tier prize requires 12,000 Seals... That is 2,400 Winterfest Crackers; assuming you get all 5 Seals each time you use a cracker. This is very pay-to-win as grinding is essentially impossible in the 2 weeks of Winterfest and the IAP's range from 120-1,800 Seals per pack.

    Vote on the poll if you want this rebalanced!

    They should be obtainable from ALL activities, similar to Tree Decorations. Another issue is the Ancestral item level up, but I'll get to that in another thread.

          5 seals for one winterfest cracker?
          Just ridiculous.

            More Ways to incorporate Winter Seals into Winterfest limited activities ( Suggestion ):

            Completing GROWCH Parkour ( one time per day, resets every day )
            Giving GROWCH a certain amount of gifts
            Ice Fishing ( random )
            Training Winterfest COTD fish
            Opening a gift ( rare chance/random )

            Actually make seals more available for everyone. It is almost impossible to get a single seal without paying gems or money.

                  This is not impossible. I tried using 400 crackers in a clear world and I got 400 Seals. 400 seals in 2 minutes.

                      That thread might've had been made a bit too early;
                      While it's expensive and I admit IAP gives quite too much seals the grinding by itself is more than doable in two weeks
                      Some of the numbers in the main post are wrong

                        I tested it myself by using 1140 crackers, and from those 1140 crackers I was able to obtain 1180 seals, missing a couple here and there. It's definitely doable in 14 days, but it will be expensive... Assuming we buy crackers for 200/65, and that we get one seal per cracker on average, we would need 12000 crackers for the final reward, and the total cost for that reward would be a whopping 39 diamond locks... Or spend 100 USD on the gem packs to get it.
                        Only trust people with what you're willing to lose.

                        Stay safe, don't get scammed, and have a good day!

                            ...Which is exactly what OldSock is pointing out.
                            You used crackers. It'd be impossible to grind it without the crackers.

                              Yeah, it's change my mind. This completely do able, to all poor gtpian (include myself) the only worth for this is ancestral level 6 (which is you need lots of dl to make ances from 1-5). And you not losing 1dl for 300 cracker (300ish seal) but you gain block, equipment ,etc. Plus you get the seal (keep it mind you need lots of dl to reach the winter wonder). (And also get paper crown, maybe)

                              To all poor(include me), let grind wl with fishing now and invest later(or now) xd.
