Shard shop rework needed!

Let me start by saying that shard shop is really awesome and I'm glad we got that initial rework that brought all the gear in. However I strongly believe that we need a small modification to it!

Shard shop has very few slots and too much gear and the problem is that some times days can pass without certain pieces rotating. I know this may be the intention to cause players to buy refreshes however those refreshes can be expensive and honestly spending crystals just to make 5 salvages appear doesn't make alot of sense.

I recommend that we expand the store to have more slots and instead of 10 pieces rotating in one slot, to have a maximum of 2- 3 pieces rotating at each slot.

This is literally the easiest implementation and it's not to much to ask, makes carbanti- guns- cuffs rotate on the same slot, all gold pieces have their own slot, gear 12 salvages have a separate slot from rancor raid gear, ect.

I think that's very useful QoL and it's not going to affect revenue much.

    Are you building up a huge surplus of currency? If not, there's no need for this.

    You're the worst. You really don't have to poo-poo literally everyone else's ideas/suggestions. But to answer your question... yes. Especially after the Rebel Roundup shardstraviganza. I had over 5k shard shop currency after that event. Down a bit now, but I would be thrilled by the suggested change.

    I dont think I have had a day where I dont buy at least 1 item in 3/4 of the rotations.

    I dont buy much from there, but it is a good source for gear and there are some great options in there. Gold balls, cuffs, guns, caribanti....

    I have over 6k now. It goes fairly quickly and then it doesn't matter how often pieces show up as long as they show up occasionally.

    If you have a problem with me, I'd suggest reporting me.

    I actually think it would boost revenue. When people see progress they tend to want to "complete" the task at hand (e.g., going from G10 - G11). I manage all of my gear allocations based on the farming speed of Carbs and Guns. If I'm able to get a Stun Gun completed, I'm more likely to spend crystals on the yellow eyeballs, yellow cable boxes, and other rarer gear. Crystal spend down means I have a higher likelihood of buying more since I don't finish Top 20 in squad arena. Longer it takes me acquire a fully crafted Stun Gun, more crystals I'm able to accumulate, less spend down, thus less likely for me to spend any real money.
