[Suggestion] Keep Mining Event Permanent

First off, I would like to thank IGG for coming up with this event that benefits all the players (from the big time spender to the casual gamer). This had exceeded my expectations in terms to my last suggestion was to upgrade and update the Event Wheel to be on par with the German Version of GOII. However, to get players to somewhat come back to GOII, might I suggest we keep the mining event on a permanent basis.

Introduction
For those that don't know its existence, the mining event is a free event that players participate in to get great rewards (and I use that term very heavily since I gotten a Medusa and 100 Huma Gems off the two times I played). Players enter the page, and then click on "Start Mining" to begin the mining process, which takes up to 24-hours to complete and players come back to collect the Iradium gem to exchange for one of the 6 prizes that correspond to the color of the gem the player has. For those wishing not to wait for the 24-hour mark, they can purchase Huma chips (50 MP mind anyone for the 500 exp chip) and use the accelerations (as you get 1 per Huma chip bought) to shave off 25 mins from their total time, thus making it faster for those wishing to collect their rewards and hit it again (?? if true as I haven't met a person that spends on so much Huma chips) before the time runs out.

Breaking Out the Cons
Alt Abuse: Who really cares about alts these days, hmmm? First off, all the items come bound that a person will need to pay 100 mp (for cards) to unbind it to be sold or transferred (and I will get to that in a sec). If they don't have a good supply of MP, then they will have to purchase or sell stuff that people want to build that MP. Second, with the new banning system in place (and we all know what happened), only a small handful will be stupid to risk their account(s) if they sold below pricing. So what this means for IGG? Just basically more MP sales (if people are up to it after what happened to a guy who played this game legitimately).

Singling Out the Pros
Player Benefit: All players have benefited from this event as they get better rewards for their time. Some might have bought MP to buy Huma chips to accelerate and try the mining event again before time ran out. To have this event each day will have activity and probably have more coming back to join in, thus keeping the game alive and people who want to fight fighting.

So what do you say (excuses are not needed at this time) on this? Ball's on your court and the fate of the game rests in your hands.

I have got to agree on both points, this is a great event and should become permanent like the Wheel of Fortune.

+1 For the Suggestion

if they don't want 2 free events running all the time, they should drop the Wheel, we've already got a free wheel in game, the event wheel definitely should be replaced with mining.

To be quite honest, they should replace the event wheel with the mining event if they really don't want to run two free events as the previous poster indicated. The wheel itself is severely outdated as (when I was told) the EOS shield is sold for cheap in the trading center now a days. Not only that, but the little resource packets are not worth the effort as many might have 'farm' instances, join a corp that gives a nice bonus, or farm other planets for resources.

Around a year ago, I made a suggestion to update the wheel to be on par with the German GOII version only because since the day CG was introduced, the German wheel had the best rewards possible that I had won while playing it. The only reason I didn't quit the US GOII and stay on the German version is that I only know a few phrases of German that I am stuck. Also, I do not have many friends that play on that version. Else, I would be playing that version 24/7 non-stop because of its wheel.

When IGG released this new event (mining event), I was blown away. I was skeptical at first because I thought it was an event for paying players or those with MP (in which I do not have much MP). However, and after talking with friends who played the first day the event came out, I decided to try it out. It's the greatest thing that came out, and hoping it will be on a permanent basis as it will keep me in the game a bit more.

you're the moderator here, if you ask may to ask them to change it, won't they really look into it? lmao
but i have a feeling they won't touch nor change the event wheel to be more..... player friendly. Just a hunch though, but i digress... you should ask may to ask the developers lol

Thanks for your great suggestion, as the event prizes need to change from time to time, so the event unable keeping same.
But we will increase the event times and adjust the event prizes, to make sure most of players can join the event.
:)Any other event suggestion please feel free to let us know.

Thanks for the reply and consideration, ceci. I am sure they will. As far as the variety within said event, it's okay as it is as it gives stuff people want to keep them playing. As to this event, there are a possibility of receiving 1 of the 6 prizes associated with the colored iradium gem as does there is a possibility of receiving 1 of the 4 colored iradium gems to draw said prize from the group: a total of 24 prizes available to be drawn.

And I want to thank everyone for showing their support for this event. Indeed it has been a very nice one, and hope it will be permanent.
