Cash Shop Discussion

Not sure if you are trolling or not, but...

I am fairly certain a large amount of people paid money to access the game at an indeterminate time. Now they are having access to the game that they paid for, and will be able to spend the $25 GIFT in the conqueror's package a few days after the game releases.

I don't see the issue.

You what mate? Few days?

We start on 28th, we spend our 2500 pearls on 10th of Feb. How is that few days?

Was there... anywhere stated that there will be a cash shop at headstart? Or did you just assume? :)

No, but I can see how many were counting on it and are annoyed if it isn't.

I personnally think it's a good move (although I was also expecting to spend my Pearls on 28.2).

this ....could have least posted a reason

The cash shop restriction should have been advertised from the start  we spent £100  on pre orders .. id probably not have bothered if i new we were gonna be gimped to make things "fair"

Yeah this is kinda bait and switchy.

I bet what they realized is that a bunch of people that start playing will quit before March 10th (they won't like the game), so therefore if they paid for conqueror's, Daum gets to keep all their cash.

Exactly and most of the people  that bought the game really don't care one way or the other, it's just a small vocal minority here that hoped to exploit the cash shop to get some advantage.

^^ this :P

No, no, nope. I doubt you guys will change it; but this decision will make looting painful as hell till the 10th...definitely not looking forward to that...oh well

Besides all the nerd raging going on, is it really going to slow grinding down by such a noticeable amount only having one pet? ( Generally clueless to the nuances of the loot/pet system )

 

or are people just crying to cry as usual?

Dont close cash shop at 28.02.2016!!

or just simple add only pet's in cash shop, because we need pet's for lvling. After we get lv 50 we don't need use pets for anything.

The purpose of this thread so far is literally just an attempt to keep all of the assumptions and speculations about the cash shop date in one place. I don't get it, just say why you chose the date and the assumptions disappear, then we can start a meaningful discussion.

My only gripe is that now I have to play on equal footing as everyone else during the first 10 days and I can't just pay real $ for more inventory/weight.

So CBT2 will give us a taste of cash shop prices and items and how they'll improve our game experience... then we'll be forced to gimp around with one pet well into our 50+ experience by the time the cash shop comes out? This makes no sense to me.

Dont you think testing something out should be given time to reconsider and fix some things? Maybe their pricing on CBT2 would be ridiculous so would you prefer broken shop or that one which you could have impact on?

one pet is not enough? Is game unplayable with one pet?

It will not affect sales much, it will mostly affect us.

My bad. I was typing a response to people claiming it would cost DAUM a ton of money in the poll tread. But then that poll/topic got closed by CM. I should have edited my post before pasting in this thread.

There is not a lot to change, 6 days is more than enough to received feedback + fix.

pets are really important
i didnt loot a single mob until level 30, because it takes really long to loot every single mob ... and you cant really loot while fighting in high density areas, unless you are rdy to die/ waste potions ... and at the headstart, ppl will rush these spots ... you will fight for every mob .. you dont have time to loot what you killed few sec ago, or you lose exp

Agree with this. I spent $100 on your game Daum, get a bunch of goodies, get a 4 day headstart, and get pearls, and now I can't make the best use of my time and money? It's not fair. I spent money expecting to gain access to the cash shop on Day 1 of headstart. I was planning on buying a few pets at the very least to make looting suck less and who knows what else. This is really completely absurd.

I couldn't care less about when the cash shop opens. The only thing that makes me concerned about this, is I'm Wondering if they're basically not ready for launch. Delay in the cash shop. No info about server type. No info about karma adjustments. Starting to get the feeling that there's a huge rush/ panic / unpreparedness to get this out the door.

It's playable, but having three or more leveled up pets means never having to personally loot anything which makes your grind at least twice as fast.

don't you think if they needed extra time to fix things they should release the game later instead of removing stuff because "reasons"
