Hello Nexon Representative:
I was unable to parse the bit about EMS ("much more similar reason than you may imagine," what?)
There was no reason given as to why GMS will not offer these again. In fact, he denies the only reason we (believed we) had been given, about NexonNA getting in trouble with NexonKR when it was offered before.
TBH I don't know what there is to discuss.
Obviously all the users want them back. At least, all the ones who aren't such hardcore pre-BB'ers as to want all Hyper Rocks of all durations deleted from the game.
Equally obviously, NexonNA does not want to bring them back and does not want to tell us why. But really, the only reason possible, since Korea has been ruled out, is money. They think they are making more off the temporary rocks than they would make off permanent ones. Good luck convincing them otherwise.
As I have repeatedly stated, for my own case: I have never bought a temporary Hyper Rock, and never intend to, unless the prices are reduced drastically (like, a one-year rock for the price of the current 30-day one). However, I have bought 4 permanent ones, and if they are offered again I will buy at least two, probably more, depending on price. I believe there are many other players like me.
This is a suggestion that has been constantly pestered and has never been done after the first incident. I'll assume the description given the reason why they never intend to sell it again could be taken as a grain of salt since years has passed.
As for myself, I've never bought a temporary Hyper Teleport Rock or an Additional Pendant Slot due to the ridiculous pricing of the item, along with other items in the Cash Shop. If they were offered for permanent duration that doesn't have a limited amount of stock, I may reconsider buying one of each. These items are considered game-breaking if they were offered for permanent duration, which I would completely understand of not being sold again.
