There are two ways to look at the latest event for Astellia Online. On the one hand, you can get stuff in the game just for sitting around for a couple of hours, which means extra stuff without any extra effort. On the other hand, the event is literally devoid of content beyond “stay logged in for two hours.” That is… generally not what you want to see in terms of an event motivating people to play the game.
Player response has been fairly muted at best in the official thread, noting that this is a poor substitute for actual content and that staying logged in AFK for two hours is about all this will motivate the population to do without a reason to do more. So this is certainly a red flag about the game’s overall schedule. Then again, well… it’s more stuff for just two hours of logging in, that’s at least a nice benefit if you were already planning to play.
