The Empire Shop is CLOSING in 2017!Update: The Empire Shop has been replaced by /shopworld, your go-to location for the DDTT, and promotional items, when/if available.Old thread...That's right. A massive sandstorm is coming to the Empire Shop's sandy dunes and it's going to close the doors for good. What's left after the dust settles will no longer sell all items.We've discussed this quite a bit, on and off, and we've decided that it is time. The player markets are strong enough that the need to spawn in items just isn't there and the majority of people that use it are new players who don't understand the player market prices just yet. We've already had to adjust prices a few times because we were influencing the player market, something the Empire Shop was never meant to do. The market simply wasn't applicable when the Empire Shop was originally purposed. So, as of shortly after the New Year, the /shop location will be replaced with something else.The new build will be a location set up to sell the promo items, when applicable, as well as some off-hand items at all times, such as the Dirt Destroying Ticking Tock (DDTT). Some other things may await you as well, but you'll have to explore to find those. Note: This is a heads up of about 2+ days. We PLAN to replace before January 3rd, but may run into delays. Visit /shop to say your good-byes. Hashhog, a member of the Senior Staff Team AND Build Team, is working on the replacement build design and it's looking great.
