Dear QuarterMasterC,


In the future, when announcing (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=295110) new armor kits, could you please post a preview for what that kit will look like please? As informative as a link to the descriptions of the items may be, I think it's an a given that anyone who would "Click here to read more," is already aware of what the Store description of Armor Kits is - and would find a preview pic to be far more helpful. Not to mention it would drum up more interest as a result.



I would have mentioned this in your new thread heralding the new kits... but it seems I don't have permissions (http://forums.ddo.com/newreply.php?do=newreply&noquote=1&p=3512713) to to do so. It may be too much to ask - but maybe think about not locking those threads so that questions could be asked or suggestions like this one made in those same threads.


Thanks for your time, QMC.

It would be nice to have some idea without having to dig over the internet for pics. The 1tp cost for live preview on your character is just plain silly.

The 1tp cost for live preview on your character is just plain insulting.

Fixed that for you.

and why are they getting dribbled out like one at a time...

at this rate, it will be forever before one comes out that i would BUY....

then i just wont be as interested...

and whats with the warm colors?

seriously, some solid striking colors would be nice, or somethign with cool contrasting would also be nice.

stop useing pastels and get with the magic markers!

Apparently you need to wear bright colors when heading into dungeons.
Seems it helps to draw aggro and attract every monster to you.
And there's all those times they don't see you passing by, it's just polite to let them defend.

Naturally do no try this in PnP as it will get you killed.
Let alone in the real world, where you will draw aardvarks, alligators, bees, bears... and that's only to letter b.

But if they offered a free peak at the kit when announcing it, they would eliminate a trickle revenue stream for previews. We don't want Poor Turbine to go broke do we ? :rolleyes:

If they released all the kits at once rather than stringing you along one at a time, people will only buy the BEST one that they want. Not buy the best of the lot now, then the next one if its better, then the next one after that when its even better looking. Their stringing us along, releasing the so-so ones hoping to get people to bite now (since its diff than what they have been wearing) and then release the cooler stuff later thus insuring you make more than one purchase. We don't want poor Turbine to go broke do we? ;)

Its all about profits and how to maximize them.
:mad:
