Not this cowboy. We have 160,000 items with 200 more every week. I'm already overwhelmed. I don't need one more of anything unless it is something absolutely fantastic. None of those qualify.

I just don't see why they'd waste an artist's time..

Because they are a hydra of talent driven by bosses who often don't have the same vision about where their bus is going........ :haha:

But that statement is true of every IT shop I've ever audited. There will always be wasted effort due to inefficient management. It is what it is..... :smug:

Or they could just give us the items at no cost to them...

What do you mean 'never were?'

They exist, they just haven't been put into the game.

What on earth is the point in making stuff and then not selling it? :dizzy:

Isn't that a ridiculous waste of resources?

The vast majority of people on this thread would like to see these items released, seems straightforward enough given that someone has already invested time and expense in making them :drink:

I have a myopic view of the things that get released in the game. If something never gets into the game, it "never was" in my book. BVG could have a treasure chest of 500 items that "never were" for all we know? But these 500 already created items are no different to me than the infinite number of ideas we talk about all the time. Until BVG pulls the trigger, they just don't matter for game purposes in my head.

With that out of the way, I absolutely understand that if someone likes the stuff and wants it and can see it, they have every right to let BVG know they would like to have it. If one of the items was a magical charcoal battle sword with etched flame detailing, I might even be inclined to ask for it. Or not. And I absolutely agree that BVG is wasting resources when they do this. They should have an annual "grab bag" release for funsies where they offload all the "misfit" items. That could be fun.

I prefer your 2nd paragraph - the one where you see an opportunity (like we did) rather than an obstacle :smug:

Additionally, IMO something's either a good idea, or it isn't.

My opinion wasn't based on specifically wanting one of the items in question. It could have been a load of items I'd never use but I would still agree that in principle, they're better off being sold than not once they've been made and assuming that anything non-game worthy would have been discarded.

I didn't even understand Viking's Sarah's explanation about them not fitting into a theme tbh. My understanding was that they create theme-specific content, but her post seems to contradict that? :eh:

Saddens me that there's no flexibility to just put them out anyway - this self-imposed theme timetable seems to hamper / restrict at times, but OTOH it is their game so they can literally do whatever they like.

So why don't they?
