So.. First you give away a non-released set of fashion to ppl who stopped playing. Then you decide putting it in the charge rewards for 5k points, instead of putting it in the cash shop is a good idea..?

thanks for crapping on your players PWE. :D

    On top of that, the fashion is bound when you get it? And it does not say it will be bound as in the battle panther's case? I got the fashion for the wife, but now its bound to my male character.. GG guys.. fix this please..

    EDIT: Why is the Phantom pet now BOUND after incubation? Its not a CS Item you buy with Soul Leaves, s why did you change it to being bound?

    I have a question.The fashion "saloon" (charge reward) is the mentor fashion but it's red instead of being blue.So the question is: The saloon's head have butterflies or not?because montor's have it and it's the most important thing in this fashion.

    Oh my god, "Raver" Fashion... really? I mean, really...

    "I'm gonna go to a rave tonight, better bring my thigh-strapped knives!"

    Pro tip: When you're just gonna re-color existing in-game fashion, at least have it done by someone who isn't either mental or color blind, because I threw up in my mouth a little. I mean, I think it's **** that you go ahead and toss re-colored versions of the Mentor fashion sets into charge rewards as it is, but sweet baby jesus, you couldn't have made it any uglier. And then call it "RAVER" fashion?!

    As someone who used to frequent legit raves down in and around Boston back in high school, I am almost offended by this foolishness. Of course, then I remind myself that this is a silly game that isn't worth letting myself be offended by in any way, for any reason, but damn guys...

    Pardon me CND if this takes your thread off topic, but might I perhaps mention - once again - all those actual decent looking fashion designs that were part of that contest a looooong time ago? You know, the ones that were said to be good enough to be put in-game at some point? How about using the unnecessary amount of time I'm sure it took the halfwit who re-colored the Prismatic and Biker sets to start working on giving us fashion that's actually worth spending money on. I like that idea, does anyone else like that idea?

    It amazes me that Forsaken World fashion is, for the most part, such a massive failure. I suggest hiring whoever designed fashion for PWI, because a LOT of that stuff is legit.

    I posted last night about the charge rewards and somehow my post seems to have gone missing, again....

    My question was however, I had about 3700 points sitting there waiting to be used when the next promotion came up, which is like now, and when I check last night, all of those points are gone and all that is left is what I have done in the last few days.
    What I want to know is where the heck are my points?

    They don't just disappear like that. Points continue to add up even if you do not have the charge reward promotion going on, and I know this for a fact because I have checked, every time I buy zen, transfer the zen or buy stuff in the boutique, I come here to the website and see that my points went up, plus I can see all of my purchases listed there going back to the beginning of april but yet my points are GONE.

    I want to know what the heck happened to my points. Don't tell me they just "reset" or something like that because I know that is not true. On one of my other accounts, they kept building up and building up for a few months until I had about 15k points sitting there so when the promotion came around again I was able to spend every last point, and I did.

    Now all of the sudden all of the points I had sitting there on this account are GONE...I had OVER 3700 points there and they are just gone. What the heck happened to all of my points???
    I know I had them! Im not senile or stupid and seeing as how I can see all of my purchases there for over a month, those points should still be there but they are not.

    it's always been stated with charge rewards that the points will expire, like it was stated in the origianl thread, read all the info, and it has been posted in the thread and on the news page what the dates are and that yes the points will expire

    -
    well I don't see how that is possible because as I stated, on another account, my points kept building up over time, it was about 2 or 3 months worth of charges sitting there, I had about 15000 points sitting there so when the next promotion came around I was able to use those points. THEY DID NOT EXPIRE, they were all there, waiting to be used.
    I then used them as, at that time, new items had been added so I used my points and got some things.

    And seeing as how some of those purchases I have made on this account, have been less than a month ago, those in the very last should not have expired either. Perhaps I could understand them changing policy around recently and perhaps the points going back to around April 1st, when they did the rollback, might have been expired but the ones I have made more recently, WITHIN the last month, those should not have expired.
    I am not a rich person here, those points that I had on my other account accumulated over a few months, no way in heck I was able to put that much cash into the game in a short period of time like that and gather up 15000 points. I am unemployed and not working, I don't have that kind of money. Those points just kept adding up, they never disappeared or expired on me.
    So to tell me now that points do actually expire, well I'm sorry but that's bullcrap cause I know what happened on that one account, I don't use that account much if at all anymore and those points are now gone because I used them several months ago. I know what was there, and I know they did not just magically appear there in a few week's time. I don't have that kind of money.

    Even, as I said, they have made it so point expire now, what amazes me the most about that is that they make it so points expire RIGHT BEFORE they turn around and bring the promotion back- add all of these new items, and then get you turn around and put yet even more cash into the game, to get more points, so that you can get these items. Hmmm, ya right. PWE's perfect timing? Or just another scheme to get us to spend money....perhaps a little of both but either way, taking away unused points is bull.
    How could I spend those points if there was no promotion going to spend them on? That is not fair. Okay so some of you will probably turn around and say, ya well since when is PWE fair? You would be right about that but regardless, I know what happened on my other account which is why I posted my original message to begin with.
    I don't care that they added all that fashion everyone wants so badly to the charge rewards or the orbs or the new pets, that's fine with me...at least they are making it available some other way other than a code for being gone for a month. But as I said, it does sure sound like just another way for us to spend money either way, either you spend it and buy the stuff from the CS or you spend it, transfer it, spend it in CS anyways on other things and get points here to use to get the same stuff.....either way you are spending money.
    Ya well I wouldn't have to spend more money if I still had the points I already spent money on in the first place.

    You all whined when they made it an inactive code. So they give all players an opportunity to get the fash (FOR FREE if you use leaf market and Merc Bogo. You even profit off of this). But, still you whine that they put it in charge reward. I'd be willing to bet a large amount of money that if they put it in CS but not for soul leaves, you all would whine about that too.

    Who ever accused PWE of caring what any of you thought or even caring if they made you upset? This is not the first time they will "**** on you" and it certainly will not be the last. Getting all angry and rawr qq about it every time is only going to raise your blood pressure. Take a deep breath and quit kidding yourselves that PWE will do things the way you would want them :D

    charge reward points aren't supposed to work like that so you honestly just lucked out in those cases from an error on the part of PWE. I noticed that I had points before this reward too which were now gone - I'm guessing there's some error in their system that adds "charge reward points" for purchases not made during a charge reward window, though it's just a clerical error since those points should be gone once an actual charge reward is started. Nyxa or another mod correct me if I'm wrong? o.o

    About the fash~ I was actually very happy it was a charge reward this month! I had 1k leaves saved up for a merc/FA/star diamond bogo so just by cs-ing a bit more I was able to get the fashion. Tbh I'm just thrilled it's not in an orb! And I like the slight exclusivity it gets by being a limited time only charge reward fashion :p I'd probably feel guilty buying it with real leaves (if it was put in cs unorbed), bored if it were put in for soul leaves (because everyone and their mother would have it), but this solution suits me perfectly ;)

    It was also a nice touch upgrading the charge rewards with more recent orbs - definitely made for a refreshing and thoughtful change!

    My charge rewards did add up, but that was an oversight on PWE's part, so now that this time they haven't, it's fine.

    However, I'm very, very annoyed about the fashion situation. Way to take our legitimate concerns and make a circus out of it. 5000 points? That's ridiculous. You want to put it as a limited time charge reward? Fine, I'd have preferred to outright buy it, but to keep the scarcity up, I guess that's okay. The amount is way, way too high though. People who don't even play can get it for free, while the rest of us have to spend a ridiculous amount of money to get a shot at it. Seems very fair.

    Battle Panther is bound? o.O WTF!

    EDIT: Why is the Phantom pet now BOUND after incubation? Its not a CS Item you buy with Soul Leaves, s why did you change it to being bound?

    Actually, the phantom always binds after incubation. That is stated, albeit in a way most people wouldn't understand, in the bottom of the text. A phantom is very loyal and binds himself to the owner. I found this out the hard way once, and lost 50g. But no matter what, it will always bind.

    Its not about the fashion itself, its about the principle.

    Thank you for the reminder but i already know which game to avoid.:p
    Every publisher has one chance, meaning one game. I see no use to change a game when the problems behind it are the same in the near future.

    Expiry of points means you are depending on pure luck to get something you really like for them within the time limit.
    If they decide to put a lot of unwanted items in the promo, you just have to live with unwanted stuff or loss of points, simple as that.
    Still i like the charge reward concept more than the so called tiered events.

    The issue could be solved with some kind of permanent charge rewards, so players who decide to charge up would have something they can get for sure if the next promo does not contain something they like.
