i totally agree with Ionface post, i wish we could have more choice each year, because if i dont like the 3 microtransactions this year i will just buy nothing.

if i had access to the mtx from the last year i would have bought the headless mtx + the new rolling head and also i like the hand pet who follow you, but i couldn't buy it last year. so i might just buy nothing because without the headless mtx i m not sure to buy the rolling head pet.

i think the exclusivity should stay on supporter pack content but not on halloween or christmas or whatever event in the year because it just limit the choice.


Some people buy the items precisely because they are exclusive. It's a way of rewarding those who jump on the opportunity. I can already see it now: next year they will sell some kind of Jack-O-Lantern pet that crawls around on vines or something and the people who are refusing to buy the Jack-O-Lantern helm this year will be the same people that are upset they don't have both.

Having one or two microtransactions that return every year would be fine but the limited-time ones are the main attraction.

so helloween microtranstions from 2013 are really exclusive, but Valentine's heart from 2013 is not (but they annonced as exclusive). And no changes was made to Valentine's heart 2014 to make them different... Dear GGG, can you reconsider this? or at least give some exclusive-alternate variant for VH 2013...



"It's possible that Valentine's Heart will return at the same time next year, or maybe in a slightly different form."

It really annoys me that they don't even acknowledge the mistake they made. Here's the first part of that quote:

So the sale was already over when they said it might return. In other words, people had already bought the item on the idea that it wasn't returning before they announced its possible return.

Here's what was initially said on the announcement of the sale:

And the second time it was mentioned was during the sale:

The Valentine's Heart was the first limited-time microtransaction and was a good experiment for them, so it's not really even that big of a deal. I just wish that they would stop trying to pretend that they didn't deceive people and never do it again.

Like last year's ones, these are only available from this promotion and won't be sold in the future.

Until you decide to sell it again and just stamp a different year on the name to make it "different"? The items look great by the way.
