-I like the gachapon system, as it is a good way to have a chance to get something good for a decent price, but I believe that there should be an option to buy costumes directly.

- I'm a little concerned about the pricing of some items. I can understand the seal remover being $20, but I'm concerned that if we are able to buy costumes directly, it would cost that much. I believe that costumes would be more effective at the $10 range.

-There seems to be a bit of discrepancy between the item mall on the site and the one in game. I bought a pet data chip for 149 AP (I believe that is the correct amount. Will verify in a bit) but when I looked at the item mall in game, they had it for 99 AP. I'm all for sales, but I would expect it to be the same on the site and the game.

-The item mall in game is more limited than the one on the site. I would like to see the 69 AP specials in game if possible.

-It seems that news on the site is not updated as quickly as when we click play game. For example, right now the game has news that the item mall is open and about the 69 ap bonus, but the site and aeria ignite still have news from the server maintenance as the most recent posts. Updating it on all three fronts seems like a more efficient way to spread news.

I love the 69AP items. A great idea with a cheeky price Wink

The bike is cool if a bit too expensive. I had hoped that the new bikes would be on par with the ones from the Founders packs but I hear that it enhances better + has instant mounting which makes it a bit unbalanced. Kind of regretting buying the Elite pack now Sad

Costumes and lingerie would be my main purchases from the mall, but I will not take a chance on gambling to get them. I don't have that good luck. The gamble boxes are the worst! I know that myself as well as many other people simply will not buy them. Making a gamble the only way to obtain costumes and lingerie from the Item Mall is a horrible idea.

A mall is where you buy items. A Casino is where you go to gamble.

Is Aeriagames aware of the annoying Squad and item preview bug?
These 2 Bugs are really really annyoing, making much problems ingame and should be fix asap.

You can fight bosses only with 6 people, because you cant create squads
It's really bad when you wanno do Bosses or Titan with the guild / randoms, other groups (people don't get loot. bacause you could not invite them.

That the item preview is bugged often and dont show stats has made me a lot of money too.
Buying items form the AH, when taking it from the Mail seeing it is already idetified and hast bad stats.

These 2 Bugs are critical and did not fixed for weeks now.  
The items without stats are ones that have not been identified. You have to take that to the npc to have them identify it. To avoid scamming players, I think that either items that have not been identified should not be sold in the AH or the item description should clearly say that the item has not yet been identified

My suggestion is increase the % chance of obtain the outfit, also reduce less junk in the gatcha boxes. Since people will not likely to buy it and waste their AP gambling and knowing that getting Junk is higher than getting the good stuff. That is my opinion otherwise the 69 AP is a great deal.

I loathe your item shop's present setup. My primary cash expenditures are on clothing and costume items in MMOs with cash shops. At the present moment I've bought $50 worth of costume boxes and received zero costumes for the effort. For me I'm not turned off of ever spending more money in your item shop. The only reason I spent as much as I did was because I didn't know that costumes would be (infinitesimal)random chance availability only so I bought what I thought would be sufficient points for my costuming needs into the medium future. Since that was not the case and I was already out the money, I used those points in an attempt to get costumes from the random boxes. I think it goes without saying that 1) it didn't work, and 2) I'm not buying any more points until this changes.

Quite frankly, at this point if you want my money, put an item up with a cash on the barrel price and allow me to make an informed choice on if I consider it worth the cost. The gambling boxes are a cynical and sleazy exploitation of psychological tricks. I still like the game itself, but as it stands I've changed from active proselytizer and regular supporter to straight resource drain. I'm going to keep playing, I'm going to keep making characters, but I am most certainly not going to ever spend more money without some sea change in the methodology of the cash shop.

At the very least, allow those that spend money on the cubes to sell what they get

It would be nice to know what the outfit looks like before purchasing. Any images?

Couple of things:

1) 69 Shop is great

2) Pricing is a bit ridiculous (bike and certain data-chips)

3) Lottery Box sucks...not that I have anything against lottery but the rates are horrible and the stuff you get aren't even worth the price of the box. CP, SP and HP Potions REALLY!? If your going to do lottery at least add things of similar value along with the rare item.

4) should show the outfits on more than one class

Since all of the Pet Data Chips are Level 1 in the shop, will they be upgradeable later or is that only to tide over new characters until they can loot better ones (in later updates)?

If they can't be upgraded, then I think those prices are a little extreme.

In Star Trek Online there are lottery boxes that have a small chance of giving a rare ship similar to the boxes introduced here that yield rare outfits/bikes.

However, to make players feel they are getting more value for their buck(and increase revenue on the keys needed to open them), the boxes also give a minimum of four lobi crystals-a special currency that can be spent in the Lobi store on rare ships/outfits/pets ect that are exclusive to the Lobi store. This way, even if you spent $100 on lottery boxes and didn't get what you want, you are still building up currency to acquire valuable items, thus increasing the value of the lottery boxes.
Would you guys consider something similar as a future lottery box feature?
