And for the most part they already neglected the nontradeable values of nontradeables by rereleasing them so the record is broken. It doesn't bother me if the few untradeables we do have that haven't returned do return, if it makes players more likely to stay.

"you could e.g. have a new version of horns come from actual gameplay, with or without membership needed to get it.

(And to be honest, IMO it should come from pretty much anything else but TH. Solomon's store could be a good choice.)"

We both know that that won't happen unfortunately. Everything is mtx involved.

Suit yourself, but quite frankly, why do you expect others to care about your issue (if you get what I'm referring to), if you're being nonchalant like this about something that isn't your issue? Personally I'd always defend what's right, regardless of what the odds of success are, whether it affects me, or how popular it is to do the right thing, because I doubt anyone would like to be in the situation where they have a right to something and someone wants to take that right away, while others wouldn't care because of the earlier 3 reasons (one or several of them). So even though the odds here might not be the most favorable, bear in mind that it is a realistic ask, and would not require a miracle to occur. > )

And really, nobody would stay playing simply if they were given an optional item; it's the core gameplay, monetization and the company's actions that really matter in that decision. If you're burnt out for playing too long, a cosmetic item won't magically restore your interest to the same level it used to be; taking a break does. If you're starting to question whether the amount of money the company expects you to pay is worth it, a cosmetic item is a drop in the ocean. Etc.

Even if the new version was involved in MTX, it would not need to be discontinued like the original.

This is not "my" issue. It's the game's issue, and everyones issue. If this game dies out then im just another customer playing less and eventually leaving. Sometimes we might not always defend whats "right", but what we think is right, hence being biased towards one side.

"regardless of what the odds of success are, whether it affects me, or how popular it is to do the right thing"
Yea i agree.

"And really, nobody would stay playing simply if they were given an optional item; it's the core gameplay"
Trust me if someone was given a purple partyhat, they'd give up all their desires to quit the game or take a break. ;)

"Even if the new version was involved in MTX, it would not need to be discontinued like the original."
Still MTX.
