    Instead of selling each individual costume on the MP, introduce a coupon trade ticket that can be swapped for any costume. Makes no difference to pearl sales but it will able people to get whatever costume they are looking for without waiting 20 zillion years to out snipe the 40k bots. You could also make the coupon tradable for horse gear and pets.

    Either way current system sucks more than a 90 year old porn star.

    I don't know. It would probably be like value pack. Practically impossible to get from MP. Not like you have any high chance to get costumes now from MP, but i think it's still higher than getting value pack.

    Well, i agree. I was proposing failstack system before. You fail to bid on item, you get higher chance next time, until you get it. Then it goes back to zero.

    Getting pearl items from MP is the most bu*t hurt bs this game has. And since Kakao will always keep the cash grab, no matter what suggestions we will think of for it, it will always stay bu*t hurt. Only less. Well, if Kakao will ever listen to us, that is. Which they won't.

    One of the problems is that outfits cost differently depending on the inclusion of awakening weapons or not and plus they just did that price drop on a few outfits to 2200 pearls which a new price point so you have to either exclude certain ones and have separate coupons or have slot specific coupons like a "Pearl Weapon" coupon.

    Slot specific coupons sound pretty neat. One other way to potentially solve this: Make the outfits worth a number of coupons. They would essentially be a new currency of sorts. You would still have to pay more for the more expensive outfits, but now you can pick and choose which ones or individual pieces you want.

    You'd only be bidding against more people who would always bid. At least now, as the same one gets placed repeatedly you have less competition for it. Honestly, I don't see a problem with the current system.

    I agree, attempting to combine them all would only cause problems as well as increase the competition. While people may be frustrated with the system, I have yet to see a proposed system that is plausible without harming one or more legitimate groups of players.

    Yea, i would know of one. Make Kakao stop the blatant cash grab.

    It is all disgusting business practice from its core. In-game armors was intentionally made boring and nice looking costumes was put behind paywall, so that people felt the need to buy the nice ones from the cash shop. Yet €30 paywall. The only way to stop the frustration is to make some nice armor and crafting system within the game. They should make big variety of ingame armor skins and actually not boring skins, so that it wouldn't feel like you are wearing a potato sack and still keep the cash shop with the epic looking costumes. Yea, they would probably make less money, but still they would make money. It's just about not being greedy and being more creative.

    But i know i'm talking to the air anyway. This whole problem was discussed many times before from the very launch and devs only laughed at us.

    I already proposed my suggestion before for the bidding system, which was not flawless, but still would make it less frustrating. I will wait till someone else comes up with flawless suggestion for this crap system now. It won't happen. This crap system will always stay crap. It is only a question of how much. But good luck with that.

    Would love it if you could actually be able to buy pearls for in game money. Players could buy or sell pearls for in game money at an exchange post and the price would fluctuate depending on demand and supply.

    Other games have done this and it works very well.
