Not me. Would take a lot more than that to get me to drop 50 plat just like that.

Is it stashable? i.e. swap amongst alts? My guess is no...

No, it is intended for the character that has their name reserved.

Willpower people! It's in there somewhere...

I can see the devs back at HQ rubbing their hands together, laughing the evil laugh, with smiles of glee.

Well played, well played.

Lol this whole thing has me cracking up. So many people were like "50 plat? No way!" Now they bought one for every character. STS really knows their customers. I didn't think anyone would fall for another vanity shield, but look, they did.

It really is genius. They didn't even have to create a new item -- just pulled it from B* and voila! Everyone buys. I can totally see vanity items going up in price now. Next holiday will have them at 50p, since obviously people will pay.

On a side note, even though we're at 1.7.2.1, some fundamental issues still haven't been fixed.
Sure, people get used to it, but then, it really gives PL that "B-category" feel.

1: aim hijacking by objects/enemies (even when they're no longer in range)
2: most importantly, enemy hit/range.
Imagine being 3/4 of a screen away from roach, and even though he's hitting you with physical attacks, he still magically manages to hit you.
This applies to EVERY enemy in the game. Not only that, but also the fact that you can be facing away from the enemy, and he still hits you (I'm still writing about physical attacks, not aoe).

These issues have already been brought up a few times, but nothing has been done to fix this.

But, put this idea in context. It's all about context. Everything you NEED to play is free. Everything you'd LIKE TO HAVE is plat. How cool is that?

You don't NEED to reserve your name. You just have to be attentive and DL the game the minute it's released, and you can probably get an even better name than the one you have. But fear, and nothing but fear, is driving people to beg to reserve their names. It's like a run on the banks. It's like Y2K. People believe fears before they look closer to find out what something really is. And when you can't look closer, you only have your fears, and then people act like their fears are real. But it's not. We'll all get our names. But if you really want to alleviate that fear, spend the plat. Otherwise, cope with fears (put on the big boy pants) like you do every day, and make a plan to snag your name on day 1.
