Official Mount Adoption Feedback Thread [merged]

edited November 8, 2017 in Guild Wars 2 Discussion

There are a lot of conversations about the mount adoption option that was released today. Many of the comments in the individual threads repeat ones made by the same person in another thread. We very much want to hear your feedback, but have found that a single feedback thread offers the best opportunity for you to share your thoughts and for us to review it in the context of a wider set of feedback.

So here's a thread into which you're invited to post your thoughts on the subject of the Black Lion Stables Mount Skins.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    They are called bundles.

    It could be unfair, i understand, that's why I will give players a ln alternative.

    1600 bundle.
    700 single skin.

    I dislike instead the account bound drops from blc, while i am fine with bundles.

    What happens if you already got a certain skin and get it again?

    You will get nothing probably, at least in OW and HOTS you get shards/gold which you will use to buy skins.

    1) Explosions makes me wet.
    2)Yeah... That's it.

    The FB page says you won't get duplicates.

    Thank you very much for answering my question :)

    The Black Lion Stables are pleased to open their doors and offer new mount adoption licenses. Each license will allow you to claim a random mount skin from the Black Lion Stables, and they are available in the Style category of the Gem Store for 400 gems each.

    If this trend continues I won't fund this game anymore, simple as that. This is stupid.

    The math:
    400 * 31 = 12,400 gems.

    How is that different from spending 100 gems for a chance at an exclusive dye]? Or 80 gems (in bulks) for BL keys, with a random chance of skins? Like any lotto, play if you think you'll get lucky, otherwise hang tight and buy the specific skin(s) you want when they show up at a discount later.

    Those dyes can be bought on the TP and flooded quite nicely with supply. Mount skins cannot be bought on the TP.

    Still, someone had to play the lotto for folks like you or I to take advantage of the discount. In fact, at least in this case, the 400 gems guarantees a skin; the other RNG boxes on the gem shop contain more junk than not.

    I'm not likely to be willing to plop down 400 gems without getting to choose a skin, but all the same: I can see why you (like I) won't want to spend that amount for RNG, but why does it affect your paying for anything else that the game has to offer?

    Hype is the path to the dark side. Hype leads to unfulfilled expectations. Disappointment leads to anger. Anger leads to disgust. Disgust leads to "oh, new shinies! I'm back!"

  • People were totally fine with 20 dollars for dye channels and asked for more. Here you go lol.

    So I'm in Lion's Arch where a ton of people have those random skins.
    From what I'm seeing from this bunch? I'm not seeing a single good mount skin.

    Is there a way to see what choices there are without buying the thing? I know the thing say I can right click to see but I kind of refuse to pay for one. Next is, if what I'm seeing are the choices, that is also even more of a reason I would never buy one as they all look atrocious at the moment.
