Just being mad at them for hiking the gold shop stuff from less than 100k per pieces to billions in one go instead of having took the time to try the 100k - 1mil or even just the 1mil - 500mil ranges first. And them playing the Ostriches since then by not even said a single word about it too, even when prompted and it being the rage discussion in several forums. I didn't check back, but I did stalk a few of the staff which usually answer people in feedbacks and nope. Nothing. Thought I shouldn't even have to dig the info; something that big should be enough to warrant at least a staff notice.
I dunno, first of all I feel like they should have tried so many more ways first -- like, not hiking everything this high and kept more reasonable stuff while having some pieces more on the quest side.
Or, just tried to hike the prices way less like suggested above.
By having hiked everything this much at once without trying compromise just feels like wasting the update for me; several people which usually buy the stuff just didn't due to finding it way too much or not having the funds anyway. Some bought some because they had enough gold and didn't realize the huge hike. And others which would have enough gold just don't care about the gold shops at all and totally refuse to even own a single piece from there.
So, instead of mass selling and having the effect of goldsinking, people keeps their gold and just ignore the items. And... it's not even because they looks ugly or are unusable emotion_facepalm
Putting the prices aside, just the fact they don't even take a moment to say "oh right everyone, we decided to hike the prices starting now with the gold shop updates to include more premium items; we may or may not only have prices this high on future updates; feels free to leave your comments on this change here *insert link to a feedback thread*" almost annoys me more than the fact the prices are high stare They were doing much better communication-wise recently, so it's like they are taking 10 steps backward with such inactivity.
I'm still hoping to see them step in and actually say something. Dunno yet what I will do with my avatar but... I'll take that time to clean my inventory a little -- it's having issues to load here and there so I'll move some of those CIs stuff which is taking space. Should help a little smile
Okay that was a bit of an exaggeration sweatdrop However the kitty in question is a very selfish kitty and demands lots of love and would have likely attacked said baby. So the kitties now live with me.
Yeah, read about it right after. Opened a bunch of trunk and still got none of several items so far; so it might take me a moment to manage to get some. At worst, it will go down in price and I'll grab them on the MP. Thanks for letting me know smile
cry I hope that I did not make it sound like a good thing. I keep looking around thinking she is going to come trotting in and meow at me for my attention is not on her. This really really REALLY sucks.
