    Hello everyone it is me Nadarr. Today I'm here to talk about the item of the month event. I would like to put out the suggestion that for the first hour of item of the month but you are limited to buying one item for the first hour when the item of the month Shop is open. My meeting for this is so I don't get a fair Shake I getting something cool that The Devs and whoever else is involved create in one person buying the majority on the shop out. I I'm fine with it being the first come first serve however I think limiting it purchase for the first hours giving everyone a chance to get something niceis reasonable.


    Please let me know your thoughts and other thoughts on this matter please.

    I really don't think this is necessary. The system is fine as it is. The Iotm is a first come first serve for a reason. Those who are dedicated and work hard for the jewels/cc they want to spend should be allowed to do so freely. Just because you lost out on the opportunities on nab some items you wanted, doesn't mean we're going to restrict everyone for it to one purchase per release within a time limit. Iotms are released every month, and the selection is fairly vast which means there were always be plenty of chances to purchase unique items in the future. At the end of the day, it's a race, which is what makes it exciting.

    You don't walk into a shop, seeing three things you really want, but only pick one to be considerate of 'other shoppers'. Then lurk around for an hour to see if anyone claims what you wanted in the first place, wasting your time in hopes of getting those others things that you really wanted. Imagine claiming something, and sitting at your phone for all that time, only for the other things you wanted to be snatched in in the 58th minute. Frankly, I don't feel comfortable adding this kind of prolonged stress to the Iotms. At least if people are getting in quickly, grabbing what they want, it's over and done with. If you don't get what you want, sure, it's disappointing, but you get over it and hope for better luck next time.

    As someone who purchases items semi regularly from the IotM, and who personally tries to only purchase one thing at a time, I'm against this change.

    ItoM is a gamble. That's what it is, and what it's always been. Mythal and I have both missed out on things we really wanted in past sales (moreso him than me), and we usually only purchase things that require real money through CC, but as much as it sucks we know that's how it goes. If someone dedicates their time to waiting until the exact second the items are free, often times in the middle of the night and losing sleep to make sure they get those items, then more power to them. They earned it.

    This is not the first month that people have purchased more than one item, and usually there are a couple people every month that purchase more than one item. It's never been an issue before, so I don't see why it's an issue now. There are people who miss out on items they want every month because others get to it faster, but they don't complain because they know that's how the IotM works.

    I know it sucks to lose out, especially when spending with CC, but again that's part of the risk that's being taken. When I donate CC, I understand that unless I am purchasing from the VIP shop where the items are stagnant, I could have donated all that money and not get the thing I was hoping for in return. But that's the choice I made because I know that's how the IotM operates. If I didn't want to risk my real money, I wouldn't donate it here in the first place. I'd spend it on other things I could be buying in the real world.

    And honestly I think that's a point that needs to be brought up here. These are fictional items on a website on the internet. Under a setting where, as Artemis already pointed out, new items just as unique and awesome as the last are put out every month. The jewel people use isn't real money. The CC people spend is, but again as I just said, that's a gamble that we agree to take whenever we donate that money. If that's not a risk you're comfortable with, don't take it.
