AJ HQ MANUFACTURING RARES

Hello everyone!
Well, we now say goodbye to the fourth Rare Item Monday! Yay.
Now we get an update in two days! YAY!
Anyway... here's what I wanted to tell you guys about.
You know the Lionfish Armor that came out this week? You know, that weird stuff with the fins and stripes that you've suddenly seen on everyone?
Well, believe it or not, it's a rare.
Yep, I can already hear the alarm bells ringing! WHAT? WHAT? WHAT? WHAT? WHAT? WHAT?
Like that. Really loud. Cuz a billion people are shouting it.
Yes, that's right! AJ HQ has decided to be really cheap on us. In other words, if you're waiting for an actual member rare to come back out? It's not going to for a while.
Here's what they've been doing based on the pattern of the last two weeks: On the first RIM (Rare Item Monday), they released an actual rare item: gloves. On the second, they 'manufactured' a rare by shoving it in the stores for one day and taking it right back out. I can't remember what it was, actually.
On the third RIM, they did the same thing as the first: released an actual rare item, in this case, fox hats.
On the fourth (today), they released the final piece of the Lionfish Armor set, all of which will be removed by tomorrow.
Cheap, much? They're saving up the real rares so that they can repeat this cycle for years and years on end. And they're making more so that it can repeat for longer.
It's effective, yes... but the problem with a system like this is that eventually EVERYTHING is a rare except for a few select items that have remained in the shops forevermore. The ones that have never seen the light of a "NEW!" or "CLEARANCE" sign. The ones that no one cares about, period, the end.
And once everything is a rare...
...nothing is.
Food for thought.
Bye for now!

  5. Oh. Yeah, I've heard of the Medusa Masks... members only, if I'm correct. So they're going to switch back and forth between member and non-member rares, occasionally manufacturing one.
