If OCP was a weed, that feature that bRO has is a cocaine lol
Players would enjoy it "initially" but the side effects would kill the server. That's why bRO is so bad (probably worse than iRO from what I heard/was told and I thought no server would be worse than iRO)
Care to explain how a rotation of items on cash shop would be worst than this -_-ty rng lottery we have?
Also, bRO sucks because of the staff, mvp cards in cash shop, really outdated content (they dont even have rockridge). But they do have some nice things, like the rotational cash shop and some events that allow free to play players to have a bit of fun, like the "Royal Hunt" (https://browiki.org/...iki/Caçada_Real) that is going on, the easter event that allowed people to get refine certificates from herbs (https://browiki.org/wiki/P%C3%A1scoa), and Brasilis Fest that has some pretty nice gear (https://browiki.org/wiki/Festival_de_Brasilis).
This was pretty much my point. Why ask for another way to siphon money from us when we should be asking for a way to earn items via in-game means? WP isn't likely to make either change, but we should at least be asking for the right thing instead of conceding to what we think they will be more likely to do for financial gain. So no, I would rather not buy items full price in 1 shot, I would prefer that over RNG if I had to choose between the two. BUT there is a third option to obtain the items via in-game means that I would rather choose.
They could do the same thing with enriched ores. Say you turn in regular ores for an HD / Enriched version (like how 5 rough elu = 1 elu). That might funnel a lot of dollars out of their pockets short term, but once the market normalizes they might have a larger player base that spends money on ore sometimes. It would provide players with a revenue stream in-game (farming elu / ori for zeny) and introduce more people to the value of premium ores (that they might then purchase for real money in the future).
Of course that would be a WAY better alternative, but we all know it wont happen. WP and Gravity want to syphon as much money from players as they can, so why not make it a little bit better for us? Of course I would love to be able to drop all the gear I want from instances, mvps and whatever, but since we have to spend money, I would rather get something I want than some random useless item from kachua.
(btw, I have not spent a dime on iRO since Kachuas came out, my complains are simply because some normal items prices have skyrocketed because the rotation only happens monthly with a really slim chance of getting items. HBP for example)
