Did you pay for the "Collector's Edition" which includes the in-game goodies?
|Yes. Cheating a little is ok.:||0 (0.0%)|
|Yes. $10 for all those items is well worth it.:||16 (80.0%)|
|Yes. I like vanity items, but I don't like that I have an advantage over others.:||0 (0.0%)|
|No. Real life $ has no place in MMOs.:||0 (0.0%)|
|No. I just didn't buy/upgrade it.:||4 (20.0%)|
someone on the O-board posted that the likelihood of a Vanity Cash Shop in the game is pretty strong in the near future. this was followed by an onslaught of replies threatening to un-sub should that happen.
i pointed out that the Collector's Edition was the first for-cash product. i also pointed out that aside from the vanity items it also awarded usable items in the form of a free mount(across all toons) and extra bag slots(across all toons). this can add up to an amazing amount of saved Plat and an intangible benefit from the bag slots. in the grand scheme, this adds up to very little, but it is the principle that is being whored out.
