Hello!

So, when I joined waaaay back in 2015 the celestial raffle worked the same way it did now - of course, with fewer bases and markings - but there was also a distinct difference back then; there were vastly fewer players.

Back then there were around 60000 registered accounts, with maybe 500-600 people on at any one time, back when the servers used to cry in February when everyone would be online on both accounts at one time and it was a struggle when there were more than 1500 users on-

But I digress.

The total accounts now seems to be 237,294.

That's almost 4x the number of players, and yet the number of celestial raffles has stayed the same, yet with worse odds.

That means that, its incredibly unlikely for someone to win - because that's 2 lionesses from unlock (which was the 7th I think?) to the 31st - that's 48 lionesses total.

I'm not very good at calculating odds... but that's an incredibly small number.

I propose that the Celestial Raffle is changed to be a little fairer.

My idea was to double - perhaps even triple - the number of old base raffles with the new base of the year being limited to one a day.

That would mean, 4 to 6 raffles, with 3 to 5 of them cycling through the old bases and markings - Celestial, Skyward, Sidereal, Sunset, Sunrise, and Leonid. With one a day being the new base - Dawn.

It would cost the same, the only difference would be that they would run every 6 or 4 hours depending on the frequency - which hits every timezone, and almost every active player would get a chance.

People probably won't like this suggestion - but if you don't, please explain why so I can amend my idea as needed.

I'm just thinking with a lot of people not liking the current event as it is - at least give us players something to be excited about that we enjoy.

TL:DR - Increase frequency of Celestial Raffles for older bases, to give more people a chance to win them, as while the player base has grown, the number of lionesses raffled has not. Same could be said about the weekly raffle lioness



This suggestion has 84 supports and 4 NO supports.

Staff, in general, needs to account for the bigger player base. Not only with celestial RLs, but also normal RLs. It's kind of ridiculous to expect one mark to reach critical mass from one lioness, especially when we have players who like to hoard and restrict.

@Jaxhammer - I agree, hence the suggestion. This game was never going to stay small for long, and now adjustments need to be made.

Still pretty sure imma get dragged for posting this lol.

I think it's funny how Tier Goals are accounted for when it comes to player numbers ( i.e placing the goal too high) , but not anything else lol

If the Playerbase is 4x as big, there need to be 4x as many lions dropping.

Would definitely like to see this- and regular RL odds- adjusted with the larger playerbase in mind

Hard agree! I think I had a suggestion that's buried in the forums where the older celestial bases get their own Celestial Raffle Lioness section.

So Skyward, Sidereal, Celestial and maybe even Sunset in one raffle set in a separate CRL area than Sunrise, Leonid, Stratosphere and now Dawn.

I'm not really sure how it would help, but it would allow those who don't care about those bases to ignore that RL area and focus on the other, whereas those who want nostalgia or something can go for them instead. Or some people just don't care loafagn

I'm not really sure how it would help, again, but it would open up two Celestial Raffle Lioness areas instead of just the one which is cycling like 8-9 bases currently.

Also, Taevali, don't forget some years took much slower to unlock the Celestial RLs! Which is less ones we get! :)

Yes! I would love to see this happen! It would be a nice change to the game, and balance out the game more.
