      • Bedecked Boot Boons Achievement needs the completion of the Rank 1.

    • Ships will be automatically destroyed at the end of each battle on The Violent Maelstrom battleship arena [LINK]. That should resolve the problem of some ships spawning out of the team base at the start of some battles.

    I really don't see how you guys think full kit freighters in RNG boxes after only a year is a good idea. And it concerns me you're gonna do full kit S200/B200 cars as soon as 3.5 launches on this server. Live servers were 3 years old before they hit and that was still questionable. I'm really confused on some of the cash shop tactics and kinda worried for the future. Just give us the Rudolph & Yuletide upgrade tickets separately and create a different box :/

    Server restart has always been at 7am server time so yes that has been coinciding with one of the titan rifts the past few weeks.

    Can't see what is wrong with that, farm cars is not a big deal, are useful and the method for lot of people to make gold.. gold moves the game as credit sellers need it too, maybe I'm missing something

    When you receive the gift from the Boot you get 1 towards your Achievement.

    I believe the problem that people have with farm carts in rng boxes is, that many people used a lot of gold to build them. I'm not sure if they're bound on pick-up, but if you're lucky you can basicially get the same just with less effort and less gold.

    why i got the winter maiden token instead of winter essence from the boot's gift box, is it random?

    that is a good question.
    as you can see from my screenshot earlier, the box used to be called [gift box] but the box i got today is called [boot box]

    It does indeed count for the achievement upon receiving it, but why is it a different box @Sparkle ? and does it have different rewards?

    ty for your patience with our many questions :3

    It's not a bug. There are 2 types of boxes can be received from the boot. 1 gives you an essence and another one provides one of the items from the list given above.
    But we made a decision to change it, so players would receive both essence + another box with 1 more item. That change will be implemented in a few days.
    We'll also reduce the needed quantity of Essences for the Yata costume for 5 more, so that would be a total of 20.
