The way I remember it, it was for your ally currency, but there’s only been one item in the past several shipments. Or one measly character for the ever scarce gold.
Shouldn’t its real name be ‘Crystal Shipments’ or something similar. I just don’t see any real reason for it to exist.
Where are the Stun Guns?
people like me who have excess gold (i rarely drop below 100 mil) can get those 5 overpriced char shards, but since there's so much spare credits it's a drop in a bucket. I'm not the only one with this much $$
overpriced crystal purchases to make that money for cg
The selection has gotten worse each time, IMO, but whatever. It’s there if there’s something you want and otherwise you can just ignore it for the rest of the week.
The most valuable part is the 25 shards of relevant characters for the legendary/HJ that is around or coming shortly. If you need to get some shards for crystals to finish up a character farm for an event, it’s nice to know those are there rather than having to worry about whether the shards you need will show up in the rotating crystal shipments (or having to buy gambling packs - yuck).
While this is all true, they invited the complaints by making the store really valuable for f2p the first several weeks and then (with one exception, the GW token weeks) making them just about useless for f2p.
The F2P offerings are pretty meager, but since the weekly store didn't replace anything else, anything it offers is better than what was available before. There's really no reason to have a problem with it.
I'm one of the saps, and it's annoying to see all that nice stuff I can't afford, but hey, it's nicknamed "Galaxy of Whales" for a reason.
