Oh *so* many possible comments...

30000 isn't going to get me a cool IRL mount. Not even close.

There needs to be something for those of us that do well in the most important game of all:

The Game of Life.

I propose the $100.00 Rancor as a trophy-mount for those that succeed where it truly counts.

I WANT MY CM RANCOR!
And yet, if you pay 100$ for an in-game you have failed at life. What a dilemma.

I wonder how many people are going to be screaming "lawsuit" when the game inevitably shuts down (whenever that may be), and all these people who spend $100's or $1000's on the CM suddenly realize that they have a whole lot of zero, bupkis, squat, nada, and zilch to show for it?

Thats not really true.

For alot of people 100 bucks is not alot of money and more so for a 1 time purchase

I wouldn't spend it on a rancor but if I really wanted one it wouldn't be a big deal.

I went downtown with some friends this weekend bar hopping and easily spent over 150 bucks, IMO buying a rancor may have been a better buy and less of a headache the next day

Interesting question. Have there been other MMOs with a cash shop that shut down?

Not a cash shop, but when APB shut down without warning alot of people had long-running subscriptions left.
Personally I had 6 months worth of subscription paid and there was alot of talk on how to re-pay that.
In the end the game was renewed with another publisher and developer and everyone who had subscriptions got some free stuff, but I don't remember what it was.
Click here for free stuff.

previous owners were able to transfer their old characters over. Their old characters retained clothing and designs but no weapons, vehicles or cash.

That was it. People that had months left on their subscription received nothing in return.

I think Warhammer had one. I wasn't there for the shutdown and quit playing before the EA/Mythic Store though. I don't know details.
