Free items vs. Premium items (Updated: A Classless Reunion)

Replies

  • Am I actually asking this?!...Yes! I admit to being a 4+ year TSTO game addict and as such having one and only ONE thing missing from my character sets...a completist some have termed this I believe...ONE thing I’m actually daring to request from the powers that be...that silly little turkey. Might there be any chance this Thanksgiving to have that dastardly turkey? Sooooo very appreciative would this avid game player be!

  • It's not just that the premium items are the cool items. I can live with that. It's not even that many of the premium items are actually, technically cast members and not one-shots or skins. It's the way the prices for them are so deliberately high, the prices of Donuts are so high, and grinding is never fun, even when you're good at it.

    Aren't games supposed to be fun?

    Ok like I've said before I'm pretty new on here, but have been playing for a long time - how does one get that turkey?

    Was it a one time offer?
  • It has only been available once, in 2013.
  • Please give us the silly Turkey!

    Just wondering because I do have it, but don't remember how I ever got it.

    The Turkey was a NPC that we unlocked for free during the main quest line of the Thanksgiving 2013 mini event.

    Based on what I've read on here, I feel very fortunate to have then!
