    Could it be that it's not being clearly described as "compensation" for overheating issues to not invite a class-action suit by publicly acknowledging fault in what I'm sure is 6 or 7-figures in device damage worldwide?

    Seems unlikely to not be a tactic of some sort.

    I wouldn't doubt it bro

    And to add the cherry on the top this is also our compensation for all the previous issues

    Apparently this is the proper place for this comment, and not a new thread....

    This event seems to be just another Appreciation Event similar to others that have run around this time in past years.

    But in the SA Event Discussion thread, a moderator seemed to suggest that this event is intended as compensation for the the flaw in MCOC that caused varying degrees damage to what sounds like thousands of players' devices.

    It would be very helpful to have the intention of the Appreciation Event clarified. As a normal regular event it's fine and deserves some consideration in return, as compensation for a major issue, it's a terrible insult to affected customers.

    For context, my personal experience with the overheating issue that I lost about 4-5 hours of daily battery time on my phone and had a few MCOC crashes over the period of the overheating issue. Tablet battery life and was used too seldom to have an obvious battery life impact but it crashed more than my phone so was unlikely to escape unaffected.

    I had a similar thought—namely, that this is the Appreciation component mentioned in Miike’s posts last week and that the “compensation/restitution” component is coming later. It is possibly the only thing that would make this all make sense.

    I'm pretty sure summoner appreciation only happened once so far

    They are showing their appreciation and paying restitution for the harms done.

    Given what it is, it shows they really don't appreciate their player base that much and they don't think there were that many harms done.

    There should be a way to say thanks but no thanks, other than my account being dropped from an algorithm that includes me in potential spenders.

    Honestly I'm fine with it. A little bummed it's only a week long with my work schedule and the rest of life I'll realistically be able to enjoy any benefits for two days. The thing that upsets me most is Act 4 dropping to 2 energy. Why not 1? That act still takes SO much energy.

    Good luck with that. The EULA basically releases them from all liability.
