Was a Good Calpheon Ball!

Thanks for everything! And always great to seem dem Hammer's haha.

P.S.: Is it possible to keep Edan's features still mature? I feel like he grew "younger" with the update. :( I'm gonna miss the mature face of Edan...

@AshlarVeritus I agree! (as someone in my 30's, he was more attractive before)

Great event! For anyone stuck with the code it's THX4-WATC-HING-EPi2 if that helps I kept typing it in as 12 not epi2.

Thanks for the new class, but honestly you guys are missing the mark time after time.....this is ehhh man sad.

The only thing I have a negative opinion is the NPC face reworks. The only improvement made was the the mesh and texture adjustments to the neck and chest area. Everything else that the devs reworked (the texturing actually looks way worse) on the NPCs just makes their faces look even more fake.

I think this was the best Ball to date. I particularly liked the presentation by Hwiman Ryu, that was really interesting.

Some great stuff and some great coupons... but...

Personally, I only think Clorince NPC is an improvement. Personally, I think Princess Jarrette's (and the other two, Edan and... someone?) are downgrades... ESPECIALLY Jarrette. I loved her spunky short hair, and her attitude. Also Emma Bartali's... while an improvement STORY wise... makes her look ugly... pale... sick... (she's like, ugly crying. Poor girl, all those nightmares...)

Also... Are the Carrack skins Pearl Shop items? They don't look all that special yet... *shrugs* just colour-coded. If they are pearl shop, can are they able to be DYED like outfits? (What if you love a Volonte, but don't like the colour? etc. ... if you're paying for it?)

Just wondering... I know they're still in development.

Thanks, guys! The NA team does a better job at laying the information out than SEA --- I was accidentally over there somehow, and was getting frustrated being unable to login... until I noticed that in the address bar! ^^;
