    Default Otto's Box

    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.

    Yep really sucks, they should be updated.

    Anyway, remember that what probly most will happend if you do a chargeback of that 9 boxes, your account will be terminated.

    So first i will try to phone them before you do that.

    Old ottos stones got nerfed to oblivion, which lets face it, was the main things people bought boxes for.

    They had their functionality changed multiple times to act in a manner that was not as advertised and less useful than it was during advertisement.

    Turbine had the chance to make this up to everyone by changing the old stones & boxes ingame to work the same as the new ones.

    Instead they Grandfathered our old stuff, with the neutered functionality that they ended up with.

    Default just plain dumb

    once again missing the boat and missing money (dumb, dumb, dumb Turbine) by only having boxes for a week and a half. If these were regular items i'd get one every month when rent was paid. middle of the month, useless to me. it's not like a $10 item I can just frivolously grab.

    I don't agree that the old boxes were nerfed since I now need less xp to level to 20 than I did before U20.

    I do think it would be good to have a barter vendor in the game that let you upgrade existing store items for new ones with a shard cost based on how much more the new item cost. Maybe 50 shards to upgrade the old/boxes stones to the new ones.

    I do agree that the new boxes are way better and if I had a chance to upgrade I would.

    I also think there should be a process for people whose stones are stuck in the wrong character to fix that. That was clearly not working as advertised, but I don't fully understand the issue. It never happened to me.

    Following a tip from the general discussion forum, I created an in-game ticket asking that my old otto box be traded for the new heroic box and in less than 5 minutes it was done.

    Great job Turbine for exceeding my expectations! Thank you.
