I can understand the need to bring in more cash for SWL, that’s not a problem. But this situation reminds me of the Third Age bundle that came out the year before SWL was announced. You had to buy a year subscription to get all the things, and once you reached the 12th month of the sub, or paid for the 12th month of the sub, you’d get the rest of bundle. Or something like that. BUT… if you were a GM, You’d get all the things immediately!
Once I saw the popup as I logged in today, that’s what I was hoping, if I was a GM (which I am) I should get the items! “Oh! I got stuff in my delivered items! Neeat! That must be it!”
NOPE! Was just the Valentinus bag. sigh Then I checked here and found this thread and am not surprised that the GM’s don’t get it for free, and truth to tell, I’m not that peeved about that. It’s fine by me. What I AM dissappointed in, is that there is no option for us GM’s to buy the cosmetics for $20-$30 worth of Aurum. I’m more than willing to do that! Should be an offer that is only available to current GM’s And helps with the cash influx that I’m sure will help produce SWL content. (right…?)
So yeah… I can understand that this is going to be a hot topic. I’m sure Funcom knew it would be as well, and have standing orders to not discuss it until they can figure out a path forward. PLEASE! If you are reading this, use my suggestion! I have no problem giving you money! I just expect to get something of value to me out of it. But $100 for an outfit (and a sprint) does not make a good value to me. And I’d hazard a guess, a number of other GM’s as well.
