So Otto's Boxes were updated "optimized" for the new XP system and TR system (good thing for those willing to spend money). This change has increased the value of the whole box (and made the stones themselves valuable again). I am speaking in terms of using these boxes for bartering. Now if you have old Otto's boxes, which you still payed the same premium for, these are less desireable, even though you spent the same amount of TP for them.
Why would these boxes not be converted? As soon as I consume or trade them, I will no longer purchase anymore Otto's boxes since I now have the feeling that the respect for my "premium purchase" has been violated. I am not sure I can trust purchasing anymore items for future use will be honored.
By the way I put in a ticket and sent a PM before u20 went live about this very issue and received no response from either. Buyer beware. I still have 9 of these in my inventory and I suppose I can dispute those purchases with my credit card company, as I feel this is certainly unfair practice by Turbine.
