If the cash shop is closed until the 10th, would Daum be able to increase the time loot stays on the ground? Then we wont have to worry about losing loot due to the lack of pets.

Edit: Sorry for stealing second Marth :(

If loot doesn't despawn as fast then I have no problems with the cash shop being delayed.

Relasing the cash shop later can effect the income for your company.

I for 1 played some games only for a few hours and instantly poured money in the cash shop when I was super in love with the game. A day or so later I find out I don't love it anymore and I spent the money already.

I can tell you that not having the cash shop right away will make you loose a bunch of costumers in the cash shop. As you know MMO have a large drop off rate after the 1st week/month so not having the cash shop 1st day possible is a bad idea.

 

 

The biggest reason I want to know is why the delay? We are testing it in cbt2. It's already been implemented in other versions so it's known to be working.

I am against this decision to delay Cash Shop for many reasons.

Most people were looking forward to starting with a 96h headstart and buying pets for gathering the loot in order to speed up the grinding process, hence all the fuzz. Apart from that, there isn't much else of a game altering reason to NEED the cash shop on launch day.

Personal opinion: a week and a half won't really hurt.

 

AT ANY CASE, DON'T OPEN THE CASH SHOP ON 28TH OR 1ST  unless if you're in for some heavy salt. Open it on hardstart.

A bit of a shame since I was hoping to buy some outfits already. I'm not really too bothered otherwise. I can wait.

Didn't comment in any of the other threads, but I'll throw my 2-cents in this one.  I am disappointed with the decision and hope it changes.  I'll live if it stays as is, but I'm hoping that won't be the case.

Was really hoping to start building my critter army immediately.  And yes, part of that is due to the easy of looting.  If I weren't planning on grinding levels, this would be less of a concern.  Here's to hoping things can change!

Don't agree. Open the shop on 28, so me and others can shop what we need to start the adventure. 
Why we need to wait? Btw we got what we want 10 days later.... so open on the day one and let us have more fun istantly! "If possibile" i want exp my pets at the start... and get the skins i want asap....

Personally I won't be buying half the stuff on the cash shop once I'm level 50 as most are items I need while leveling. 

 

I understand why it bothers other players who buys or doesnt buy items from the cash shop considering it's not p2w. 

I'm in favor of releasing the cash shop when the game launches, as early as the early preorders.

I personally don't care one way or the other. If they hold back, so what! they will still have people that will by stuff from them. the majority of players will not have reached max level by day 7 of release. Also its one less thing they have to worry about on release.

You can say " but they had it during CBT2!!!!!" but the amount of players that will flood that shop on day 1 is far more than the players testing it on cbt servers. Its not a hindrance to gameplay, all it is is some QoL items that, while they will enhance some what, will not take away from it IMO.

Good move thanks Daum if we now could also talk a bit about  the looting pets and the advantages they give and some of the other borderline p2w stuff in the shop i would be happy.

At least let us spend our 2500 pearls on 28th. 

Disable further purchase of pearls until 10th.

I am curious about the reasoning of delaying the cash shop. I read through the official threads and didn't see it mentioned. 

Either way, it makes no difference to me. One would figure that when the game officially launches it would be full steam ahead $$ though.
