Buuuuut, EA gave away all of their dlc for free on battlefield 4... can't argue with that cause I've never seen a company do that sort of thing :lol:

I find it hilarious that this was categorized as player feedback. No player asked nor have thought about old lux coming back this way.

I know Android serves wanted reaper rings, and iOS as collectors didn't want old lux coming back. But to create a lux vendor ala pirate shop was really a poor implementation imo. Oh yeah, it's definitely a gold sink, which the game really needs, but it only affects very few players. Not everyone are going to be willing to gamble their gold away.

Should've left things alone. Just make boos drops better and Android lacking reaper rings will eventually be a moot point and old lux will will be valuable. There are other ways to make gold sinks beside this way.

Keep the game moving forward, not step backwards.

Imagine you had all this cool white fashion, rare stuff, now your items don't seem as good as everyone has bought the lowest tier paid a million gold and is wearing white.
While a good gold sink for us it would negatively affect player markets.

How does this make any sense, Landoril said 1million Per Piece, if you think "everyone" can afford 1 million gold for one white fashion piece you are clearly out of touch with this game. They would've payed several millions for a set of advancing the lowest tier to the highest tier as I presume you would have to go through each tier individually, which is a drastic amount of money and very few would be able to afford it ensuring rare fashion stays rare.

I have to disagree here, bringing it back was a good plan.

I like the way it was done. Don't buy it if you don't want to. It takes gold from the richest players and supplies cheap less desirable old lux to less wealthy players as the rich people try to stay rich after buying lots of items they don't need.

I am a bit saddened there is no high tier lux shop permenantly in game like the event lux vendors used to be but that is a different issue.

There aren't many who can afford (or will) gamble there gold for the small chance of getting the two or theee good lux items from the past. The fact that it's not really generally available, I don't really consider it "back" but more of a novelty feature of the game where once in a blue moon, a good item comes into the server along the same lines as I don't consider Void Moon helms as normal end game gear.

From my perspective the richest players don't really gamble their money away for the 0.01% chance of a reaper. It's the same in real life, rich people stay rich because they make good financial decisions, while those who gamble in bad stocks go bankrupt.

I know I remember Everything forum user making a request for old lux. Guess they based it off of that. Probs got some positive feedback for it to come back.

Oh i know players wanted old lux back. But not "this way". Find me a post that asked for lux to be like the pirate vendor. That is OTMs idea through and through.

But if we are all really being honest it was just all about the reaper ring coming back. No one asked for level 50 or 70 event lux coming back nor the star gems who can't even be sold these days. Maybe folks would like another shot at the wyldshrine neck but there aren't many old event lux enticing nor worth enough to buy for millions.

It's probably closer to 1% than 0.01% as there weren't that many rings, we got several in beta, and at least one world has 4 from it now.

On my world we have many people who buy large amounts of plat. As in more than one thousand usd per event. These people will buy for the heck of it and don't care much about gold because they will just buy another 1000 chests if they run low.

Since my last post on this thread 3-4 more rings got sold at our vendor.

Milder that's nearly impossible to buy from other players because most of the players such as I'm looking for trailblazer of the hawk ring and bracelet. I've shouted for 3 weeks looking. And guess what still can't find why. Because old the older players ave quit due to lack of support from otm. Why do I say that. Because in lir there was 2 clans. 1 clan tries to kill necro or mordy other clan pulls non stop. Other clan did it after they started because 1 clan doesn't want other clan to have. Well it came down to most of the clan members in one quit. And moved to a whole new server. Leaving most of the old clannies dry. They sent YouTube videos of add pulling, ss of harassment. And so much more. And you have yet to still do anything about it. You're trying to gain money. But game is slowing losing people. Because none of the staff are doing nothing about it. You want game to be bigger and make more money. Heres a few tips. Start listening to other players. Who are having trouble with others. The language. Have celtic heroes have all languages. Instead of a few a lot of people like the game but can hardly understand what there seeing. Not everyone speaks English. Most Brazilian that don't know English are pretty much clueless and slowly learning English. Your listing newer things befire you even considering the older things that people from years ago have said and gave ideas. Like the auction house. You said it would be within a year 3 years ago. Still see no auction house. But I'm seeing new area layouts. It's sad. How you have all these players trying to get otm to listen. But pretty much your refusing. Still glitches in the game. Such as skull in you're characters body. It was posted on beta testing that it needs to be fixed. But fishing update is now live. And guess what the skulls still go in you're character. Like come on work on the older things. Bring a freaking auction house already. Like everyone's been asking for it for years. And characer transfer. Like work on that before you start bringing new dumb ideas. Such as fishing. Who wants to sit around for hours casting a fishing pole. Like what does fishing have to do with killing bosses and lvling chracter
