No one would come back because they could buy something with real money. Cool kids earn their stuff.

What ever happened to hard work....? It just takes time and effort to build yourself up on GK. People are just too lazy to do it. I knew no-one when I started GK, I somehow managed to get good gear.

On topic:

I don't like the idea. Though the person who said purchase cosmetic things might be on to something, or as Bjorn said the house upgrades. Though I'd rather see that stuff for free, as it doesn't actually help the player out.

Basically everyone I have seen who responded have played this server for a while. While I value your opinion this idea was geared towards bringing in some new people.

The reason that I said offer some stuff to those of us more advanced is so we could get something out of this too. Its not a bad idea. Just needs to be tweaked with to get a final product but I would still like to see it. USDing happens anyways and like someone said. New people don't even have a chance. Maybe this would give them the edge they need. So what a nub runs around with a Ice Dagger and a High Shield of Deflection. The Ice Dagger wouldn't be prepped and the HSoD are so low priced when not EA's that they are laughable. They still aren't a threat. Its not like we are giving them the diamonds and IWD's they need and the level 20 physique.

So I don't see whats so wrong with this happening.

USD'ing would screw up the economy, because of an unbalance in supply and demand. With the illegal USD, you keep whats already in the server, with trading of real world money. With this new idea, you make items for people who pay a certain price, increasing the number of item x, whose value was originally 100 d. Now, with this idea in place, after a certain amount of time passes, many people would have the item, dropping the price to maybe 8 d. The demand goes down while the supply goes up if you can just buy the items from the site. Watch things inflate, just like the price of gas. (~$3)

Again this idea can be tweaked. Its not set in stone and I don't see why people are against helping new people out. Aren't we supposed to be bringing them in.

No offense Hitman but USDing has already screwed GK over. You just aren't around enough to see it.

He'll also have a bloated ego, and that's the last thing Gk needs, more ego

If I was playing GK I would want a newb pack. Something that could get me by for the first few levels. Also I wouldn't make it tradable.

Noob pack would help, but selling good/rare/sexy items for USD is stupid.

If anyone is working in the MMT they sorta give out noob packs: a sword and maybe a shield. Thats good enough for most.

That would actually be a good idea. I was on this morning and someone wanted a shovel when he walked in, but I told him they weren't edible so we didn't serve them.

But really, that's a good idea

It's also one that's SUPPOSED to be done, but since people aren't always working, then they can't hand out those things. But there is a store of tools in the back.


edit: I found this interesting post by someone while I was going through the Zone forums. Before you read it I propose the following question: So are you conspiring to end GK?

Whats the difference between putting in the Zone Shop and the GK Shop?

I don't even get why this is a discussion.

I'm quite new to GK, compared to most, and I'm now quite high in my kingdom, and I have good equipment and levels.

YES, I got help from friends. I made friends while I was leveling up. I'm not saying that everyone is lazy. All I'm saying is that it can be done.

When I started about 5 months ago, I had a shovel, and I dug for corn. I ate it for food, and killed bomys. Eventually, I got better, and I started going to the dungeons. I asked around, and people told me about levels, blessing, dungeons, kingdoms, etc.

So the point is ... you don't need a noob pack. You need more of a noob help book. Would be really nice if one of the GK help sites would actually get finished, so people could go there for help.

Well look everyone i have talked too has loved the idea. I mean since we who play kingdoms gets gelats (or however its spelled) we might as well have a shop. I was actually discussing this with King Johnathan Aldroth. There is nothing wrong with the idea. Like someone said make the stuff non-tradeable. People are just complaining because its taken them a long time to get their stuff and oh look a noobie can suddenly get the item.

Look in the long run they are paying more money to get the gelats (or however its spelled) to get these items then they are to merely play and get the stuff themselves.

I will say this once....Wah Wah cry me a river and while your at it fill up a ocean for me.

Seriously stop crying. Not like GK is in any better shape right now. Scamming and usding is rampant. People are quitting left and right. So why not introduce a shop. Not like anymore damage can be done.

Now with MMT handing out items. We tried that and Sam gave us hell for it so we stopped. Thats the end of that discussion.

To Hitman

I posted that when I knew little about zone shop and I will be looking through to make sure you posted that right. Now that I know you have to spend a good amount of money to get gelats (or however its spelled) and you only have a certain amount of time on zone with the items I could care less.
