I love the Black Friday event, but if I spent $100 on this game, and my special item was a McFricken IBF, I would actually riot.
Currently, the list of items you can obtain as a bonus (after paying 100 USD) stands as:
Black Stallion, Buffalo Scrotum, Crunchy Worm, Egg Yolk, Energy Boost, Giant Tort, GMO Cow, Grain of Paradise, Instant Cub Delivery, Jellyfish, Lion Meat, Lion Scrot, Meat Pie, MoD: Patches, MoD: Piebald, Ochre Gnawrock, Roasted Vulture, Shadow of Death, Shamanic Stew, OR a Yohimbe Bark
A lot of these items are pretty rad, and pretty rare, so it's great of the admins to do this. Some of the items, though... The IBF and Energy Boost can both be bought in the Oasis. If I wanted one of these, after paying 100+ USD, I could buy plenty straight from the Oasis.
Other items, like the Black Stallion, Shamanic Stew, Roasted Vulture, and the Giant Tort just don't seem like they'd be worth the cash.
Here's what I mean, based on Branch Prices.
Black Stallion is 500sb
Shamanic Stew is 2GB
Roasted Vulture is 750sb
Giant Tort is 500sb
While I realize these will inflate as the year goes on, even at it's height, a Giant Tort isn't worth more than 4GB.
So, I suppose my suggestion would be to remove the above, and just limit the list to:
Buffalo Scrotum, Crunchy Worm, Egg Yolk, GMO Cow, Grain of Paradise, Jellyfish, Lion Meat, Lion Scrot, Meat Pie, MoD: Patches, MoD: Piebald, Ochre Gnawrock, Shadow of Death OR a Yohimbe Bark
That way, we don't feel like we're being screwed if we spend so much money on this game just to get an item worth 1 GB from the Oasis.
