Charge even more zens than what it would take to gamble away my money in keys, but please, give us the option to pay with hard-cash the costumes we want to get without the gamble, even if the bundle of keys would be cheaper!

Look! I'll even add a meme because I'm serious about this suggestion!

    'I spend $70 for the Keys to open Anniversary Boxes to get the Sharkadork pieces. And still didn't get none.' Yyaaaay! WaterBalloons!!
    I rather not pay $70 a C-store costume set.

    C-store costumes aren't in their spreadsheets anymore.

    While we're at it, could we maybe get a "briefs pass" ? ...certain parts of the texture need to be widened a bit...for the sake of decency.

    If people would buy more costume sets that are out yeah.

    About spreadsheets, If they don't release costume sets in lockboxes AND in the store, they can't really compare numbers. Their system is inherently flawed to the point it screws over customers who would rather buy a product at face value.

    We get to buy vehicles in the store. Why not add costume sets in there too?

    That thing is basically a g string from the front to the back. They need to widen it so it actually makes contact with the thighs like normal briefs would...rather than just being a thin stripe that barely even covers enough to keep it from being porn.

    Here is a picture I took of my character in game. from underneath while in flight. SFW?

    Those are OLD briefs options dating back to the release of this game. Its not going to be worked on because its a fix with no return investment.

    And yet the female sitting emote got changed...

    That aside, new costumes in the C-store please. I have a ridonkulous amount of Zen waiting for worthwhile purchases in the C-store.

    When was the last time we had a sale in the C-store anyway? It's like Crpytic/PWE has given up on the C-store for anything other than keys (and maybe the occasional retcon and rename tokens).

    I guess that I will have to sell all my keys in the AH to get Gold to buy overly expensive costume parts from the AH.

    Hooray 9__9

    I think I'll go back and farm carrots on Tyria :p

    Its easier to overwrite an emote than it is to take a character model and adjust a specific piece. Care to try again with a comparable example?

    Also, Its hard to give Cryptic incentive to make new things for the store when they already have your money.

    They're not adjusting a piece of a character model... they're opening a texture in GIMP and using the paintbrush tool to color a little area some more. Doing anything regarding animations is work by comparison .-.

    And what's the return? ...well, this is dangerously close to nudity... would suck if CO suddenly came under fire because some kids mom saw his female character and thought he was looking at porn.

    I for one support this. I never even bother with boxes or keys. Try it ones in its early curse bag forms dint get pieces I wanted, so I never try it again. Its to much of a gamble and I don't mind paying but I do mind the game playing with MY money. Sorry but for me this is a good idea and your not getting &^*% from my money unless I'm given what I pay for not some random stuff. :rolleyes:

    Slightly over one year since Nighthawk's was released last August/September, but I agree with the sentiment. We really need more sets in there.

    And pretty much this would be my reaction:

    dYEbIji.gif

    And that makes me so sad. I really want to spend money in the game and see it grow.
    (inb4 I told you so posts)
    But now I kinda regret getting the lifetime account... and that makes me even more sad. Sad that I invested time and money in a game that I feel that doesn't listen to it's fan base, that it feels like a chore to play and there is really nothing to buy on the C-Store besides the Keys. :/

    Every day I see my friends log into it on Steam, but I just don't feel like playing it anymore. Specially with all the other good games out there that are so shiny, and developed, and listen to their fanbases. Yes, they are not super heroes mmos, and that makes it even more sad.

    So you are wearing a Tanga? What is the problem here?
    And you want more briefs for your char? Or what?
    If you don`t know there are already briefs that actually cover up your bottom! You just need to shake you lazyness and search them in Tailor! You aren`t forced to use Tanga briefs!

    Thats me! Every costume set and power. I buy a few things like costume slots and retcons every once and a while, but since Cryptic/PWE doesnt want to put Costume sets and Travel Powers int he z-Store any more, I guess they dont want my money anymore.

    Agreed, I've purchased all that I want from the C store, and I easily purchased the Emote pack because I wanted it as well as to add my "vote" with getting it via the store over other options. However... they do make FAR more money from the gamble of costume drops.. Which I really hate. I'm not going to hold my breath, but I'll certainly be among the first in line to purchase more sets in the C store.

    As far as the other issue mentioned in this thread.. there are characters that wear far less and in some cases are completely nude. I don't think an up skirt shot of a character in a game is any worse that the millions of other scantly clad females in gaming or real life. There ARE other options for panties/tights under the skirts, so lets not make this into a bigger deal than it needs to be. If you are specifically looking for that in a game, that's your prerogative I suppose.

    Yeah i bought zen during the sale and spent most of it on costume sets and hideouts. There's not a lot left i haven't bought.

    They could kill two birds with one stone and release all the weapon skins removed with On Alert as a C-Store pack. Lord knows we've been begging for those back, and it wouldn't even require an artist's effort. It technically wouldn't be new and older players already have most of them unlocked, but at least it would be something.

    We could also create a costume pack version of the Create-an-Emote thread and make general outlines/descriptions of sets we'd like to see sold for zen. For example, I'd love to see a mask pack. New parts under the eye accessory, partial and full mask categories would be great.

    Though if a set got made, it would probably just pop up in the next lockbox.

    This is a great idea. Heck call it a premium costume set and charge a little bit extra, say 50% extra, and it'd still be prestigious and lucrative and attract sales still from those who don't mind paying a bit more but don't gamble.

    Its more like 1+1+1+1+1 year, because they normally tell us thing like : wait just another year then we will maybe do what is in the "far future" part of the until report, like new zones.

    A year later the new zone gets smaller but of course we still have to wait another year because first the system must be overhauled for the level cap in far future ..

    Another year later .. hmm .. yeah .. vehicles .. lockbockes ..

    Now .. bugfixes (at least something) .. wait another year for something real to come ..

    There's a bubbledome helmet used by the worms and a variant version of that used by the scientists in the desert crisis and the lemurians on land at the docks on monster island that i'd really like to use both on Dr Cerebellum and Radioactive Cosmonaut!

    I'd spend real money, buy zen and buy those from the store immediately!
