These are consistent within specific areas for all players, and will change hourly.

Oh it starts on my birthday.
HOW INCREDIBLY WONDERFUL :))
NICE
Am I reading this wrong? It says it starts at 11:00 PM but countdown is for 12:00 PM.

Probably a dumb question since I'm new to the game, but I assume people start out "naked" and won't be able to transfer gear or currency from the normal incursion league and into this event?

Unlikely to get any prizes anyway, but I'd prefer something I'd actually use, like more premium stash tabs, instead of digital bling.

And for the love of all that is holy and unholy, please stop promoting lootboxes. It's such a horrible stain on the gaming industry, and I really wish you didn't do it. It's something I associate with EA and their ilk, not a (once) indie company.

You do realize that what you call "loot boxes" contain only cosmetics right?
Of course, but it's a lootbox nonetheless.
I hope they continue to do so, not that im saying this to spite you. You must understand that its a free game and the majority of their revenue is coming from these 'lootboxes'. It's like saying "Yeah, please stop trying to make money, its bad practice and a stain on the gaming industry".

On previous accounts, GGG has shown a very healthy relationship with its community and its very likely they read these comments and take note of your concern, especially as a newcomer to the game. However, so long as they never push any pay to win shenanigans and continue to only promote things that dont have a direct impact on gameplay with a premium currency I don't mind. That said, yes the community is currently in a limbo in regard to what our understanding of the impacts related to Tencents recent acquiring of the majority stake in GGG and what it may hold for the future. Im optimistic, however there is a genuine concern for the future in 'unknown hands' so to speak.

TL;DR
So long as its only cosmetic, let them promote it as much as they want. It's the majority of the games income.
I would like the game to be paid and subscription, but removed all these paid effects and gave the opportunity to get them in the game (like a rare loot for example)
YES!
