I wanted to see how would you rate the CS in its current state.

This is not a discussion, just a raw, honest, straight forward rate.

 

You can add "why" in the comments.

Please keep it civilized.

10/10 cashshop. Happy to have spent the money that I did so far. Couldn't care less about the pricing because no one is pulling a gun against my head saying I'm forced to buy stuff.

Pricing aside, I don't find much variety as of yet. I know there are some KR stuff coming in due time, but I was hoping the two cash shops would be on par.

No obtainable in game costumes, you need a cash shop item to convert costumes.  They introduced pet breeding yet you have to buy the pets.  No obtainable in game pets.  So not only do I look like a begged but my looting experience is vastly diminished.  Below average for me as it introduces a way that's considered p2w.

At the current state, I will classify it as "meh" (gave it 3/10), not really horrible, but has a long way to go, both in the variety and pricing departments.

In it's current state I voted a 3.

Right now there's not a whole lot available, and what is available is priced too highly. The fact that advantage can be purchased through the cash shop also negatively impacts my view towards it.

The cash shop is okay for now, not a lot of items yet but there will be as soon as they get off their bums and start adding Media then implement all Cash shop items they are sitting on right now.

I voted 4. Probably i'm 4.5 though...

I don't think it's THAT bad, but shit like pet breeding etc and spam chandalier in the houses take the cake. That and the prices are egregious to be quite frank.... 1 outfit 30 euros? (however that isn't my biggest gripe really...) the dye system is just -----ing bad too. End of.

RNG to get a dye you want is detestable.... undermines whole system to just grab money off people (kind of like the new pet "breeding" system). I don't mind companies charging but there is a level you know?

This is not a casino where you pay to try gamble the colours you want. Utterly absurd....

Prices are too high.

Game featerus locked behind the cash shop. (pet breeding)

Ghilie suit, which should not be in the cash shop.

There is very little variety.

One use costumes that can't be shared.. yet go on multiple classes.

OMG the dye system too, that is disgusting.

 

EDIT: like above the furniture items really are pay to win.

Cashshop content is fine to me. Coming from a couple actual pay2win games, there's nothing game breaking in this cashshop. 

I only have 2 gripes with the cashshop here - 1)prices are a bit steep and 2)afaik, outfits are 100% character bound. I wouldnt actually mind the prices so much if I bought an outfit and could use it across all characters.

People keep saying, we bought the game why is the cash shop so expensive?

KR and RU cash shop are the same price, and they're F2P. HOWEVER, you can sell cash shop items on AH....so therefor p2w. We have to buy the game to make up for the revenue lost from not having a p2w cash shop.

Stop crying, no one is forcing you to buy shit.

I like the cash shop, and can't wait for more goodies later down the line. Would love to see a farmer cash shop addition of seed pouch (separate inventory tab) and perhaps new looks for our instanced farms (perhaps different fences). I also want pet outfits like little hats, or something. I would love my beagle to have angel wings, mmmk.

"5 - meh, it's okay"

Costumes too expensive. Pets too rng. Dyes not unlockable like gw2.

But loyalty shop is pretty cool, and the 30-day appearance change is priced sooo well. 

So, it's meh!

I am not happy with the cash shop, but can live with it. More because of a perspective shift than anything Daum has done to make it appealing.

Costumes? They look nice, but they're absolutely not worth $30, and the variety is intentionally terrible.

Pets? They're useful, but not really $9-11 of useful. They look okay but aren't works of art and have some pretty weird animations and perpetual clipping with everything in reach.

Functionality? I could take it or leave it, and would probably be equally happy with a subscription model and that stuff built in.

Dyes? A system built with frustration in mind. I got lucky and am happy, others did not and are not.

It all adds up to a resounding 'meh' at best. And honestly if I went back and voted again I'd score them lower for being assholes with the content drip-feed. All I wanted were the nice-looking CBT2 glasses, but APPARENTLY THAT IS TOO MUCH TO ASK. </3

But, I can live with it, if I consider the absolute steal of $30 for the base game in terms of value for the dollar. Cash shop in my eyes is more 'perks for support' than straight sale of goods. The costume doesn't have to be worth $30 in and of itself if the game is worth so much on its own, in my eyes.

YMMV

^ that, and too expensive. Far too expensive costumes for a B2P model. It' a 3 for me. Definitely not the worst I've seen, but pretty down there.

They only said selling CS items on the AH would be disabled for launch. They never said it would be that way indefinitely. Can't wait to read the forums when it happens.

This cash shop is like a desert. I have no reason to go there, because it is almost empty.
