Free Shop Giveaway!

Post by Mayhem » 26 Dec 2009 12:03 am

I'm surprised there isn't a topic for this already. :O

What sorts of lovely things are you getting from the Free Shop?

All I've gotten so far are advent items. Gotta say though, I much prefer this Free Shop system to the old one - I hated having to sit and stalk the Donation Center for hours to get the good stuff. I feel like everyone has a chance with this one, because it's random and you can't see anything.

edit: It seems I spoke too soon! I just picked up a Book of Doom, worth 12.9mil. WOOT!

I'm also enjoying this system better than the donation center system used last year; it somehow seems more in the holiday spirit to me to give everyone a chance to get something good and have it be a surprise.

After visiting this thread I got an Ornamental Item Catalogue worth 10m! So thrilled! :D

So far I've had no luck finding the Free Shop stocked. xD

Does it restock at certain times or is it completely random?

I love love love the system this year, since the items are random and not in alphabetical order. So much more random and fairer now.
I haven't gotten too much, but I'm happy. I've gotten a Sakura and one of the goop hairs from the wig boxes.

It seems to be more crowded on Subeta now though so not sure if I'll be able to get much more. Earlier today there was tons of stuff in there but now it seems to be rather scarce.

I'm sad I won't be able to stick around for this. =( Hopefully there will still be some good items left tomorrow.

So far I've gotten a bunch of old Melody items worth nothing, and one 800k item. :D The thrill of not knowing what you're going to get is almost more exciting than realizing you just got a really expensive item in my eyes.

I've gotten nothing but advent items so far, but that's okay since I want two of almost all the wearable ones anyway. >> Stupid holiday gallery...

Count me in as someone else who likes this system a lot better than the old one. It seems a lot faster, and easier to actually GET something.

I'm not quite sure when it restocks, MM. :( Every time I refresh though, there seem to be presents...

I'm starting to get a bunch of glacier plushies, now. :O

Keith just added a ton of different (good) items, so keep trying! A friend just grabbed a Painting Vesnali Eggs (none in shops or trades). Another got a 2005 New Years Sword and yet another got a Malevolent Grimfruit. :) I've still gotten only Melody items so far, though. :P

I got some gloves from the subetique line that was released yesterday, so that was pretty cool. Mostly melody stuff though.

I'm just happy to have gotten a Melody item from the one day I missed, for free. :) Don't really mind what else I get after that.

Just wanted to pop in and say that I'll continue to be adding items through the night, but for those of you who collect tiles I just threw a load of them in!

Ohhh, I just got a 1 week GA medal, nifty :D

There seems to be a lot more stuff in there indeed, quite awesome. And can I just say once again how happy I am that the items don't stock in alphabetical order anymore!

Yeah -- I'm really glad that we fixed that, and the ??? in stock. I also feel like enough restock on each restock (and the 5 minute limit) that everyone really has a fair chance even if they all just hit the first thing they see.

I really like this system XD
