Kiz it's not just that. I would compare this to say playing slots and you almost always get three 7's but never quite. The costumes flash at you at a rate of about 50% of the time yet you never see one aside the spin. It's a dirty lie and quite infuriating one. Naturally it's not hard to know that if you see 2 boxes and 1 has an item, it's not 50/50 that you get the item. In fact code could be written so that you never get the item. Then the trolls will come out of the wood-works and enlighten us with their knowledge "wut??? u lozt all 100 fiddy fiddy chance box guessing game?? U took de gamble u lrned d lezzon kkthxbye", while being completely oblivious to the rigged system that lies beneath. If those stupid cubes at least showed the real results that you would of obtained, for example, say 10th click = your real prize, but until those 10 clicks you would see a real otherwise outcome, I would not be writing this. But instead we see this fish-hook practice where they spew the costumes at you half the times but you never quite get them. Current standing is like 0.25% chance. That's insulting and deceptive.

you can gamble is ok 6/15 chance for a costume

The seastar cubes are broken. You don't even get the cube, you just auto get the 1hour exp boost. at least the 50shades one gives you the cubes.

Went to go find the sleipnir lucky box(The gold bike) and link it but it's gone from the shop?

That was literally the only thing i felt it was worth braving the lucky boxes for. Oh well. Confused

honestly i think that the people who say "just don't buy em" are looking at these threads the wrong way

imho

1. it's a free to play game, clearly focused on the skimpy visuals (hey, as soon as i access the forums the ad says "our hottest heroes bare all") so the "prestige looks" stuff will be a big part of the income of the item shop

2. free to play games need their item shops to work, they aren't running a charity, we need to feed the programmer's families

3. letting us buy "what we want" (single use, single char items) is the easiest way of having people come back and keep buying

4. players learn and spread the word about f2p systems that work and the ones that are just rubbish


bottom line, our criticism should be read as suggestions to rethink the item mall model vs just "don't support em", i've seem some successfull ones and some mediocre ones, the only thing i think we're trying to do is have em reconsider their model, or at least let people know if the stuff will be available in the "get what you paid for" model sometime in the future

in the end, after trying today to get the costume thing for my medic, the only thing that happened is that i stopped throwing money to aeriagames and kept throwing it to other developers, and deep down what people that pay for founders / starter / item shop stuff do is just support the developers, clearly we've the money to spend on shiny baubles, what we want is a investment:reward model that feels right

I dont really care that it's a recolor so i guess these kinds of things are made for people like me. It happened to be the color i like and i want it.

Disappoint. Sad
