    I think it's a bug, crossed out items in the list shouldn't be dupelicated. I still don't get why it's crossed out if it's gonna dupelicated. Let's say I want the hidden knife, I should be able to get it at the last 325th keybit !

    It is a bug, but they have yet to say anything on it or offer a resolution for that problem. It decreased the already pitiful rates even more making it impossible to get anything good. And I agree after x amount u should get one of the big items regardless.

    I used 2000 bits in the intergate, but i cant recall getting any of the items that were crossed out (5 maximum can be crossed out, by the way).
    Will report this as a potential bug, though.

    Hey Alma, Darkwolf-

    Do you two happen to have video of this happening? Which items that were crossed out were you getting duplicates of?
    Any steps you took in particular that caused this to happen? Did you back out of the Inter Gate issue and back in during the spins, etc?

    Please let me know, thanks.

    @Darkwolf3802 So we're looking into this right now, and we don't see you getting any of the crossed out items over and over. You were getting the other items, which CAN be duplicated since the item list locks after 5 are crossed out. This is all detailed in our blog + video: http://playfirstassault.tumblr.com/post/158706754476/

    The System is cruel and I doubt you will make more money from it than you did prior to this release.

    Seriously though the rates are horrible and your entire staff seems to blow it off like it's no big deal, If I had gone and spent over $30 USD I expect to get at least a single rare and at bare minimum I shouldn't be able to get skins for characters and weapons I don't even own.

    I have never in my entire gaming experience seen such a cruel system.

    I legitimately hope that within the next week we get a way to trade items in for MC so I can get skins for things I actually own.

    I'm currently doing a write up of some "gambling" schemes I think American/European players and Nexon would be happy with. I'm going to try to be as detailed as possible with pretty pictures, so this will take a few days.

    The Inter Gate system is rather cruel in its current state, and that's a shame because I was really looking forward to opening boxes in this game, I even planned to set aside a small amount of money each week and make it a friday night ritual. I honestly can't say I'd be doing that under this current system, which is a shame because the forums should be crammed full of "LOOK AT MY COOL CHARACTER/GUN!" threads.

    But, for now I'd like to just share one idea I have. The Inter Gate system should not stop at removing 5 items from the list. The list should continue to cross off items as you win them. Assuming you've bought Key Bits at the highest cost, and you play all 15 squares of the Inter Gate system, it should cost the player $34.50. A bit steep, but you can be 100% positive that the player at least got the item they wanted. This is how I assumed the game works, and it coerced me into putting another $20 into the system because the logic was "Well I spent $20 getting this far, to stop here would be a waste". Here's a series of pictures to illustrate what I mean:

    If only they were so giving with the rates. Then maby 50 threads like mine saying this is a rip off and money grab wouldnt exist. Hopefully they fix this so its a fair system and do some form of compensation. Id go till I finally got a rare to see how much it took but im just not made of money and I can put it into other games I know will yield something good.

    Yup I got this exact same thing. Its a true on money grab by nexon and the devs and shows how unwilling they are to make things right.
