Wanted to know if it is reasonable to ask for vote ticket shop items to be added to gm shop. And before you close this ticket just hear me out. The reason i am suggesting this is because curently you can get basic items (rb jewels, lvl 2 armors/weapons, etc) and making them +16 rather quickly 1~2 days. But then you hit this vote ticket barrier that simply requires time. I mean to get one set + weapon + jewels + tatto from 16 to 20 you need 48 tickets, thats (you get 4 per day) 12 days. Then about 10 useable rebirth skill. Each skill has 3 lvls as i can tell. Each level takes 2 vote tickets. Thats 60 tickets - 15 days.
So that being said you get basic items in 2 days and then you literally have to wait a month before you can even think abouth pvping older players (or donaters). Ofcource you can buy vote/donate tickets from other poeple, but there arent reallly anyone selling them most of the time. So there is really no point in farming after you get basic items(aside from bogs and lifestones), because there is nothing to buy for adena. So you log in, vote and leave the game till next day. Needless to say most people come to pvp servers to have fun when they have no time to play on low/mid rate servers. And waiting for 27 days to get vote tickets is not that much fun. It is why i thinks server doesn't have that many players, despite being quite high on top server lists.
Adding vote shop items to gm shop and lets say making them cost a lot. Lets say 15k adena for rebirth book or whatever (or reload letters, because you allways have shitloads extra of them), would give people something to do. That would make server more approachable for new players, because then it is actually possible to catch up (more or less) to other players, you just need to farm more than people that donate.
Also players that donated to server don't lose the advantage because they still have skill enchants to +15 and aug skills that non-donate players probably wont get any time soon.
Anyhow just my suggestion to make new players stay and play instead of leaving after 3 days of farming after they hit "soft cap" of vote shop.
