I was checking cash up and noticed that the boats are costume only... so you don't get the actual boat with it now?

It shouldnt be like that in the beginning, you have to build your boat and you can get it costumized with the CS.

Some effort on building the boat is good.

Yup, you were never meant to get the boat with the purchase they just enabled it so people could actually test it since building a boat takes some very serious doing.

What happened is that a dozen or less players complained.  But they did so loudly.  And often.  They beat down the devs with this barrage of nonsense until they gave in.  It should be a lesson for the rest of us, and one we'd better learn or else this game will be taken hostage by a few hardcore, destructive assholes the same way EvE has been for a number of years.

What? There was never any intention of letting people buy boats out of the cash shop. It's taken me 3 days just to gather all the materials to make a ferry. Impossible to test if no one will be able to make it before beta ends. Stop talking nonsense.

Anyway, yes, they removed the ability to purchase boats from the cash shop with the costume. It was there for testing purposes only.

It was never stated as 'for testing purposes only'  until yesterday.  And only after the devs had been brow-beaten, again, by a few people who apparently have it out for anyone who can afford anything of genuine in-game value from the Pearl Shop.  But I give it a month or so before we see them return.  I can be patient.  Daum realizes they're rejecting a huge source of revenue and the parent company, who have the bottom dollar in mind, will bring the devs back to heel.

So you're saying you wanted us to be able to buy ferries from the cash shop? To be able to pay to win? ----- you.

You can still buy the skin and apply it to any boat you make. There's no difference except that you need to work to get the actual boat in the first place.

Where's your proof the devs were "brow-beaten"? Are you just guessing?

I was just gonna spend money in the cash shop to get a boat fast, I don't mind them removing the boat from CS though it actually bothered me that it was there in the first place. Same for carts.

Its not that hard to get it, takes time, but that's how it's meant to be.

I'm still getting my boat's skin though! Just not right now :)
