    They sold in-game statues for $500?

    I'm trying to think of a more wasteful thing they could charge money for, and I can't.
    They sold the 'promise' of ingame statues for 500$ which had a buyout of 5000$ - so far they have yet to reply to any support case - i wonder if replies would have happened sooner if all had sold for buyout...

    it will always be a shame that the complainers don't play other online games so they can compare situations. path of exile, my favourite example for comparisons, sold (and still sells) mtx bundles for 1000$, the chance to create a card item for 1000$, and the chance to create a monster used in the game for 10000$. obviously that is not a rme game...

    500 for a statue is less unreasonable than you think... in comparison

    Except the statues sold and still have not been awarded. Those other games actually give you what you buy in a timely manner.

    Weird thing is, the statues should take less resources from MA compared to a building being sold (like the bank buildings), or a LA or whatever.

    After all they should have all the graphics assets for the various avatars in the game. If there are clothing options for the statues, they should also have the necessary graphics assets for those, after all they inserted those things into the game.

    Worst case, they can always scale up the avatar of the winner and put it in whatever locations, and thats all they need. Maybe give it a bronze texture or something, if they want it to look like a specific material.

    Any decent 3d artist (I assume MA still has them) can sort out a statue based on an existing avatar, with existing graphical assets in an hour or so (probably in minutes).

    Reading this, I seems it would have been wise for MA to

    sell Billboards

    at some premium locations. Maybe the exclusive right per year or something like that...

    Yeah, if instead of statues they sold billboards with the ability to place a couple shop keepers the deeds would have sold for buyout in about 15.3 seconds.

    ...Ok well maybe not for the buyout they set. But they would have all sold and for a much higher price than 5000 ped.

    .....no. This is Mindark after all. In another 6 - 8 months it might make it's way into their "todo" pile which also contains a few other "light" tasks such as:

    - BattleSim expansions
    - Space expansion (mining, hunting, more vehicles, missions...)
    - Compet (1st deed payout, beta completion, advertising...)
    - Taming/pet Buff improvements
    - Countless BigBulk, Hoggle, Migration, Mulmun....etc events that need to be launched every couple weeks to keep up pedflow.
    - Land plot improvements (additional buildings, use for gardening, harvesting profession expansion...)
    - CLD voting system implementation
    - Of course let's not forget the full time job of thinking up and pumping out new boxes and rings every other month lol

    ... of course, that list is just for starters.

    Mindark has coming up with exciting ideas that they NEVER plan to finish down to a fucking SCIENCE!

    Fret not though, they WILL get to it just as soon as everyone has forgotten about the statues, they get overgrown with weeds and are stained with Atrox piss.

    I took over a year for the the bank owners to get their banks so waiting a couple of months isn't so long for just a statue.

    I'd have thought they'd be in contact with the buyers to find out what pose, items and clothing to have on the statue straight after the sale. May be the purchase costs didn't cover the dev time and are trying to quietly forget about them.
