I already bought stuff on the item mall (about 60$, unsealer and promo stuff). I fell for the lingerie "really not well advertised gambling" box.

I do feel cheated out and I know I'm not the only one in that situation. It's not much about the amount of money but the way it's advertise and displayed as a "great deal", it's not.

This game is in open beta state, I understand it still has to implement a lot of stuff (raising level cap, balancing class and adding content) but the way the cash shop is handle. It's quite expensive for such a limited game and in all good conscience, I can't recommend this game only for the gambling part of it.

Also, something must be done with the gold and AP seller, the economy of the game is getting ridiculous and impossible for new players to get on board. By the way, the free AP offers are just plain horrible scam for the most part.

I am now at the turning point where I question myself if I continue and invest more in it or abandon the boat.

The expression "killing it in the egg" came to mind.

Please, please do something. The game is fun.

I agree. The game is really, REALLY fun. I haven't had this much fun with an MMO since WoW, and I'm not even kidding, but the overpriced Item mall and gold/ap sellers are ruining the game, at least for me but I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one in this cruise ship(willing to bet its pretty full).

I'm also at that point where I'm thinking whether or not I should just cut my losses here now, and just drop it to keep myself from dropping more money in. Sure, I still have the option to play the **** game for free, but what's the point if most of the features that make the game FUN, requires you to get ripped off royally? sigh...

The items you can get if you buy enough items to reach level 5 (Lingerie Unsealer + 15 Platemail Lingerie Replicubes) are free bonus items. They are not the items you're purchasing. For example, if I buy 50 Narak Relics for 5000 AP, I also get to choose a free bonus package from Level 5 of this weekend's Bonus Ladder on top of the 50 Narak Relics I purchased.

Show the founders some love

Can you please make the costumes interchangeable with the specific founder's account? It will give me a reason to at least keep playing this game! :/ We already got jacked with the founder's bike having a wait animation... Show us some love please!

eh.. just wait.. the new bikes will have an animation soon enough... though I do agree... costumes should be account bound... would make me more inclined to spend money...

I would most certainly be more inclined to spend if the costumes were account bound and interchangeable. It would justify the high prices they have now.....almost...

I hope you know that only works if the items in the bonus ladder are sold separately. If on the other hand the only way to get 50 shades of pink is with the level 7 or so bonus level, then it isn't a bonus but the way to purchase the items.

All of this of course solves itself when you start selling everything directly in shop. Which as I understand it is never. So you'll keep giving people the impression you are scamming them to sell overpriced costumes, while you tell yourself it is just free bonuses that are great deals.

They need to sell MORE costumes on the cash shop before I consider the cash shop viable.

Because when there's more ways I can gamble my money away than I can BUY direct even for absurd prices, its just going to cause player burn out.

I spent 100 on this game buying sure-win items = Starter Pack, 69 derpy + booster, reset token for ME, another reset token for SE, black bike for ME, pantaloons for SE, and I think that's fine. I don't need to gamble for the rest.

There just needs more direct sale costumes!! I'd much prefer 30 dollar costumes and 1 dollar gamble boxes for said costumes.

First, what happened to the poofy clown outfit? It's gone, the random box is gone, the overpriced purchase restriction direct buy version is gone, it's just gone, why?

This is a very important point I want to address. With items showing up as they often have as exclusives in the ladder it makes this whole item casino you have going something that favours a revolving door customer base, not a long term loyal one. We will only be able to get so much other stuff in the shop before we will just be spending money on stuff we don't want to get so we can get something we do from the ladder as one of those "bonuses." I'm sure they are well aware of this too, but it makes one worry for how long this game will be around as that can only work for so long.

I could not agree with you more Phoenix. Normally I would not care and simply jump ship. But the fact is that I, and I assume you as well, really like this game. Being so we want it to last.

So here is a plea to Aeria, don't kill the game with the cash shop...please!
