    Should have done that with helmets too, for the same possible reason

    While on topic of replica armors...
    Is original ICC Peacekeeper Armor available ingame (as opposed to Item store)? I believe it was one of the points made prior to Store, that no item or buff you can't get otherways won't make it's way into Item Store.

    Haven't even had a chance to log into the game yet, and this makes me sad. Creating some new, store only social would have been all right. Putting this stuff in there is just sad. Of course, I feel the same way with items that were only available during certain halloween/birthday/holiday stuff as well. I realize that lots of people want those things, but the way to handle that would be to re-introduce them into the game at another time, not just sell them in the store. Panda heads were cool because they meant you were there. Now they just mean you have a credit card.

    Ehhh... I had 5 pieces of CC in social on my engie for the last year or so. He didn't have any CC armor on actually (had better stuff for the setup). I just needed a nice place to put the spare pieces while I was slowly accumulating a set and the other toons did not need them.

    Then again I did always have inspect enabled, too.

    Trust a game developer to make a statement like this. Just because YOU have a boss that comes to work dressed as teletubby, you can't simply assume the rest of us can be so casual about our appearance.

    So does this mean that the ICC peacekeeper set is intended to be exclusive to the Item Shop?

    Forget OTAF/Sentinels... Omni-Med Battle Armor is even harder to acquire, as you have to build on an already slightly-difficult-to-get set; selling it for 4 bucks is definitely underappreciating the amount of effort that armor takes.

    And it is definitely a sweet looking armor. :/
    I agree completely, making "epic" armor easily attainable social crap devalues everything. Half the time we spend is specifically to make our characters different - now a fr00b can have ql300 Combined armor looks, what is the friggin' point? Especially when both sides can wear sided armor?

    Okay so me and a friend who spent a while camping him a full OTAF set (including back item) for his clan agent, who then spent 7 DAYS logged in as omni in side-change cooldown before he went clan again with his "FP OTAF omni" equipped in social... anyone can do that now for a few bucks...? Stupid. We play this game for fun, there needs to be some stuff that can only be aquired through effort to make things odd. To make people go "holy crap, did you really spend 7 days logged in just to wear OTAF in social?! thats silly omgwtfbbqroflcopter"

    That's actually quite sad

    Though in the end, you where playing the game, and probably having at least somewhat fun doing it.

    I have no problems with people being able to buy stuff. I consider it using cheatcodes, and the only one they cheat are themselves.

    I DO mind removing the faction reqs. As a neutral in PVP I like it when I can see at a glance what faction a player is from, and having stuff like OTAF and Sentinels, helps setting clans and omnis at least somewhat apart visually.

    Yeah, the only thing I dislike is it lacking a prof-lock. But hey, I might change my mind if someone has a good reason for it. Also from a RP standpoint it is.. not good imo. (but who RPs anyway?)

    Its better then Yesdrop $-sold tokens either way.

    Posting here for once to vent a bit instead of on the guild chat ( where they already know how I feel and might consider kicking me ).
    Everybody I think has been said here, and it seems I'm not the only to see this patch as a failure. The change in the chat input for one thing, the icons for an other ( I have a crappy eyesight, even got surgery, but now those icons are way too big !) and the worst : the shop.

    That kids use their mother's credit card to buy replicas of CSS or CC, I don't really care, but I'm among the players who joined the game for the interesting background story. And what now ? I see in BS omnis wearing sentinel armors. I don't roleplay but it's a damn huge contradiction to the background of the game, that's supposed to be rather important in a mmorpg. What's the point of choosing this or that faction, now , if in the end there's no difference ?

    Same for the special event items that now appear in the shop : there's no point in having been in the game for the last4 years because the items can be bought. Those items you were happy to discover each day of the christmas event are now just a click away from any Kevin's hand.

    And all this for the juicy mothers' credit cards.
    I guess the meaning of the letters AO has changed : it's not "Anarchy Online" anymore, it's now "American-express Only" .
