Hello Turbine, lets have a slight discussion shall we.
Let me show you something.
Now if you are thinking "Oh that's your toon, so what?" look closer, that is my toon after I shelled out 350 Turbine point for your cosmetic glowing eye effect, 350 TP, that I spent 8 dollars to get, (Well I got 600, but 350 of them went to those eyes, and I bought the points, because I wanted those eyes)
This is how you get us to buy things, by putting out things that we will want to buy, and also, Ahem.. Advertise this STUFF. Now before you tell me "We tried, you did not like that" let me explain this.
Telling me mid COMBAT after I get neg leveled, is NOT the time to say "Buy our stuff" however, when we are going to a Mabar festival, having some NPC with glowing eyes say "hey check these out" is a great way to get our attention.
Having the people that give us free bags, tell us about additional bags in the store also works, its not in a stressful moment. Splash Screens "hey, check out this new cosmetic armor, it's badass!"
Anyway, just wanted to say, trying to fleece me with bumping up the price on hearts of wood was a bad idea, and had you kept to it, my toon would not have their glowing eyes today, and you would not have gotten my money.
So, yah, I guess that is all I have to add to this. Enjoy Mabar everyone, and maybe we can get the people who bought the glowy eyes to post their pics, to show that when Turbine gives us what we want, and not trying to gouge us, we are more willing to support them.
