Restricting the sale of skins to the auction house for 72hours is very punishing to players both spending real money for royal crystals and f2p players who have been hoarding gold to buy the skins.
Royal crystal buyers can no longer buy and sell skins for gold on a whim. Some may argue this stops impulse shopping but one can also argue that the delay is a major inconvenience that could make purchases unattractive.
As a result of the hold, the auction house prices will increase despite AGS stating they do not want to inflate skin prices. (Their explanation on removing Yoz Jar)
Highly anticipated summer skins are being gated and peer pressuring f2p players to spend due to FOMO.
This restriction also prevents players from even storing the skins on their roster storage to share.
TLDR: Let us buy our summer skins man!
FYI: I have purchased the special pack for the wallpaper but there is no way I will be spending real money to skin up the entire roster.
@Roxx - Can you clarify the reasoning for the 72hour hold? Can it not be shortened as a total removal is probably not in the books.
Thanks for reading!
