No cash shop for live until the 10th?

Do they really think any of us will still be playing on the 10th of March?  

I might at well downgrade from my $100 pack to the $50 pack since I will not be able to spend the $25 in pearls.

Well it can mean NA or EU server just as easily as imply multi servers. We still need official confirmation one way or the other.

Claiming Process for Pre-Order Items
• Once the claiming process has opened, you will have to create first a character on a server of your liking

I will henceforth try to believe your theory. Thank you for getting my hype train somewhat back on track.

u might not even be able to redeem the pet till after the cash shop goes up...

That would be among the dumbest policies I've heard of but its possible, how do we choose a pet with no cash shop up?

The fact that I will have to loot everything manually into my tiny 5-slot inventory while my character looks like a bum makes me wanna cry into my gold crusted cereal bowl.

Stop being lazy and do some quests and you can expand your inventory. There's no need to purchase inventory slots off of the cash shop when the game gives you a ton for free.

Its a voucher, i want to believe you open it up from your inv and select a pet ? who knows... noone can tell but DAUM if our claim items will be available at LAUNCH (not CBT2).

I find the cash shop release date pretty fair, they can still do some testings on it, and adjust the prices on it if its expensive / cheap.

meh, way i look at it, this is a benefit and let's be honest u gave them the 100 expecting to be able to p2w and get an advantage over the masses, way i look at it, this is better for the future of the game.

that's what i was thinking, it could be like a coupon would they really make a whole new window in the game to select a free pet? like i don't know if they would have invested the time because of that.

Well at least the timeline is clearly laid out and we can plan our purchases ahead of time.  

Still, 11 days of only 1 pet (assuming we can redeem that pet) is going to suck.  I fully intended to buy 3 additional pets as soon as possible.

There are 30 quests total that give you inventory slots. Not even enough for a cooking session.

The maximum is 192 inventory slots.

Get your facts straight or get the ----- out.

A week after launch is when the cash shop opens? Why? My only guess is in case something needs to be changed...

Was really hoping to get some weight and more pets right away. ...

I would love the cash shop available day 1, BUT I can see a benefit

I have played new games and bought myself stuff and a week later regretted the choice of class or server and hesitated to change because of the money I would have wasted on an avatar I might not want anymore.

Having a week to get settled isn't the end of the world and might turn out to be a blessing.

I could be wrong but trying to look at the bright side.

How did you get the pets in CBT1? There was no CS so pets should be obtained anyway

Once created, you can claim all items yourself via our website

That doesn't really make it clear though ...the pet could very well be a 'token' so how to choose which pet from the available options?!

At least they gave us a roadmap and didn't hide it/wait til the last minute. As much as I want to throw money at them as soon as the game opens I can understand why they don't want to open the cash shop instantly

IKR? I really hope they reconsider the cash shop date, The starter gear is all so gross looking for valkyrie, and the preorder outfit I get is ugly.... :(

I play in KR fine without ever having purchased inventory slots and I have a bunch of them. And I also cook. You'll run into the weight limit before you should ever run out of space in your inventory.

Don't mind the wait/delay for most things, given that we'll have been pre-warned about pricing in CBT2....

But the possibility of running without pets for both the headstart, and a week after that, is a bit of a slap

That's really a great story. Please stay there while you're at it. Bye.

I normally never post on forums, but this time I can not look the other way...

 

@CM_Jouska

11 days before we (conq package) can USE our pearls is ridiculous. We start earlier than other packages, and get T5 horse. I know exactly what is in the Conq package so there is no need to respond to me on this subject, however, 25 euro worth of pearls that we can NOT spend for 11 days means we only get a package worth 75 euro for 11 days. So, we pay for 100euro but only get 75euro... I hope you can understand the big frustration!

 

How is this fair? We pay for a service, where one of the perks is only available 11 days later.

@CM_Jouska Listen you have a game with a terrible loot system designed specifically to force us to rely on the cash shop. Ok, fine. The vast majority of the community has been nice enough not to complain about such a bad policy and we've even gone as far as to get excited about having a pet system. But Jesus Christ the least you can do after forcing them down our throats is at least let us have some pets at pre-order launch. I don't know how but just let us buy some damn pets before we all kill ourselves trying to loot. I did not spend $100 for this!
