I’ve been confused about this... as I mentioned in a discussion the other day, this is dated April 9. I didn’t see until today that comments just started the day of the sale. I guess they posted it elsewhere and just moved it to the public forum today, but I hope that doesn’t become standard practice, because sometime the dates that things are posted is important.

I’m surprised so many are questioning whether or not it will be the same hair, only because it’s written clearly. When I first saw the question and went back to look, I expected it to be ambiguous.

They’re probably re-releasing each item at an ideal time in a few major time zones to keep it fair, as so many in the thread requested.

Sometimes, they are damned if they do, damned if they don’t.

Good to know because the Korab Bad Guy hairs are quite expensive in the AH. I'll keep my eyes open for the next Spark Sale. Hopefully it happens after I get home from work and not during the daytime hours only.

the date is when they wrote it rather than post it. i've seen sticky posts like for the ME's saying 'Head's up the Monthly Exclusives are coming today' and yet the date on the post was from a few days previous

I can not believe they can't answer a question. Well I can, they like to be passive aggressive.
I should start a thread every hr and ask. .



I would like to know the answer too!..I was lucky enough to be in game at the right time AND get the Hair Colour I wanted...
But are we now just going to get MORE of the same Style in different colours??? (would be silly to put all the same Hair Colours AND Styles) can someone shed some clarity on this one please :eh:

I HATE THESE!!!! Those of us who work can't be on here all day to get them, and then the people who do go and sell these hairs from $4 to $30 million!!! It sucks and is unfair to so many.

Yep, that’s what I meant about moving it from elsewhere. It was probably crafted in the admin forum or something and then just moved here when they were ready to start.

I bought the Veritable Sale today because ALL the hairs were acceptable to me. Korab's design is awesome, but I'm not spending real money on a chance to get a brown hair.
Thanks these hairs are fabulous!

I'm glad others are getting a chance at this, but this is now a much less appealing sale to me in the long run. I probably won't buy anymore unless I absolutely love the item ( I did this one) and will work to get 1-2 varieties from the auction house.

Lesson learned. :thumbsup: As I loved the hair anyway, this was a good one to learn on.

Feedback: Probably wouldn't participate in sales like this going forward. I did like the hair. I did not see enough engagement with players who had questions about the sale. I do see confusion, up to the moment you re-released the hairs.

It may be helpful to be more engaging with player questions, also clear response in general about the rollout of these sales.

I just wanted to come in at the end of my day to thank you all so much for the feedback, and apologize for any inconsistencies. Working from home has caused some miscommunication between teams, but after reading everyone's comments on the forums and on Facebook, I've managed to narrow down where potential breakdowns happened and we will be much more unified in our messaging to players going forward.

To clarify, the content inside of a Spark Sale will be exclusive to the Spark Sale (they won't be released in store or appear in Classic Rewards). Spark Sales happen in 3-hour bursts that can pop up anytime in game.

I seriously appreciate all of your support and enthusiasm! The Spark Sales were created after hearing player feedback about Monthly Exclusives. Players in different time zones expressed that they were missing out on some really special content with Monthly Exclusives, so Spark Sales may be popping up sporadically at very strange hours to service those YoFans. I set the first couple to launch during work hours so that if anything broke, I could help fix them...

I also know there are players who really dislike the random nature of Mystery Boxes (I am also in this boat), and we would prefer to buy Hair Packs that guarantee no repeat colours and guarantee the rares! So I pushed to include that option. I mention this to show how player feedback directly impacts our decisions.

Thanks again! I've been loving how everyone is wearing their braids! Our player designers are so talented.

I agree too and at least those of us who bought the first round know not to bother buying any in the future :thumbsup: I'm sure they'll be some that will still buy but it ruins the appeal as you said Isla :hug:

Great thinking that I never thought of, so I owe you an apology. I'm glad they're the same and that people have different time slots to try to catch. Earlier clarity/confirmation that they would be the same hairs would have helped both people hoping to catch one and people hoping they'd never be back again.

So, I'm sorry I griped again about "work hours" opportunities. I'm just cranky because I wasn't gifted a Papasan chair when I had a valid complaint. :D
