    Default [Merged] Royal Winter Seals

    I'm going to be blunt here, for the first time in Growtopia's history, this event looks purely Pay 2 Win.

    Spending money gets you thousands of these seals, of which 12000 are required for the top tier prize.

    Spamming winterfest crackers gets you a chance at a few winterfest seals, realistically you'll end up with about 3 or 4 for every 10000 gems spent on a cracker pack. that equates to something like 30 million gems of winterfest crackers to get to the max tier prize without spending money not counting the endless hours it would take to get even close.

    The only other way (that we currently know of) is 50 tokens for completing the daily quest. 50 out of 12000.... compared to 1800 for buying the new holiday pack.

    This seems extremely unbalanced especially considering the new tier 6 ancestral items are required from this event.


    Can a dev confirm if these are the only ways to get these seals, or are there other ways that we will be able to obtain them in?

    Your saying as if ubisoft is a small indie company but rather they are a multimillion coporation with lots of money. I'm sure they would do just fine

    Seems like the only other methods are to do a daily quest[50 seals] or hope the event happens [5 seals AT MOST]

    Compared to spending 10 bucks for 1200 seals.

    This is VERY much a Pay to Win event.

    Sadly have to agree with this, it's pay to win at it's finest.

    All I have to say is u expected something good?

    And tbf why can't they add ways to grind for them so breaking blocks n trees is a low drop chance of seals

    add more accesible prizes 10 seals = 200 gems etc
    Not sure why I'm back but I'm back

    What I would highly recommend at such a juncture is offering an accessible method to acquire them with a low chance, thus requiring grinding, so that while earning them would be somewhat strenuous, it would not be impossible.
