Hey, guys, I KNOW you've been working hard. Just wondering about the FC update that was supposed to happen in February.

Thank you for your hard work. I know it's a tough job.

(Sort of sarcasm, sort of not.)

edIt: I'm a derp and missed the sticky, but I'll leave it up so you can both make fun of me.

I'll just let it live here forever.

I would like to suggest that for the future, when it comes to in game shops, please let the playerbase participate from its updating. We are the ones who play the game and been here for the longest, so allowing some players to participate of the process of updating in game dhops, would be beneficial for both the playerbase and EME from my point if view.

Did this not count ? :p

I hope the one you guys intend, is the permanent one.
Please be the permanent one...

Yeah, lol.
It wouldn't be very nice to add in new skins / costumes that have never been seen before, just to make them Single Day versions with a large fashion coupon cost. ;)

What if we added the temporary ones at a lower cost on some of them though? How would folks feel about that?
I'd like to clear this up though - back in October I said we would commit to adding these to the product roadmap and accomplishing them. I did NOT give a solid timeline nor did I say they'd all be done in the next couple months. So it's been 4 months - we removed Fed bills and moved all the items to another shop because it was yet ANOTHER currency that had no intent or meaning behind it; we are finalizing what may be the first of a few updates to Fashion Coupon shop for today/tomorrow/Wednesday (not sure which day - all based on prioritized workload for our small team).

I understand it feels like an eternity and I can't speak for what happened from prior Product Managers or CMs, but THIS TEAM is working hard on it (and especially @CobaltDragon - he will be hailed as a hero when this is done).

I just wanted to give that update as well. My attempt at being transparent about what we are working on and what we plan on working on is backfiring in that there is an entitled expectation that this is ALL we are working on, which obviously couldn't be further from the truth. Regardless of what tools it takes to do it and how fast it is to enter the items (which, btw, is a horribly manual process - don't for a second think it's "easy" to do, even if it doesn't require a build).

Assumptions about how "easy" or "difficult" a task can be is based PURELY ON SPECULATION. Unless you have worked at EME and used the tools we use and walked a mile in our shoes, you probably shouldn't make assessments about how long something takes.

I've said it before and I'll say it again,

Patience, young padawans. All will be OK.

I know everyone has been more than patient in terms of waiting for a Fashion Coupon Store Update.
It is going to happen, and hopefully there will be more updates to other Token / NPC Stores that will occur over the next few weeks and months.
Few weeks/months seems like an eternity for us.

Updating these shops is a manual process, requiring one or more EME Staff to go looking for all of the items / costumes / weapon skins.

In the case of the Fashion Coupon Store, I wanted to make sure we identified as many missing skins and costumes as possible.

It might seem like an easy task at first glance, like a "Fix It" single button press, but trust me, it's not...

There are multiple different versions of the exact same items, some for our region and some for other regions.
Also, we need to identify if the one we have found is a permanent versions, a 30-Day versions, a 7-Day versions, a 3-Day versions, or 1-Day versions, to ensure we're adding the one that we intend.
I am personally working with @seandynamite to finish it by today / tomorrow.

More details surrounding what is going into it will get posted, though it might be in the Patch Notes, instead of here in this section of the Forums.
