We, the MPQ community, would very much appreciate a roster slot sale to help us out with all these new covers!  Please and thank you!

Edit: Especially considering you just reduced HP rewards.  The newer players are seriously struggling, even when they buy HP.  I help command a mentoring alliance and run an MPQ Q&A Chat on LINE.  I've had a few quit recently because of the HP reward nerfs.  They feel like this is a pay to win game now.

    What kind of Roster Slot Sales are you talking about? The one using in-game resources or the one using real money?

    Fair enough.  I'm speaking for a major part of the player base on LINE.

    I’m with @bluewolf, institute a permanent price reduction. Once implemented, D3 can rain HP refunds upon the playerbase so that no one feels slighted.

    Count me in the camp against a roster slot sale. In fact, I think the price should go up. Maybe 2000hp at 200, 3000hp at 250, etc.

    You want 'em all? Fork up the gold coins.

    But isn't it the game itself that requires you to "have them all" due to PvE Essentials? I guess you could have a rotating roster slot as a younger roster building up your strength but the game is not sympathetic to that way of playing (See SHIELD Training).

    Not just story essentials, but DDQ as well. I speak from experience.

    Whilst you're at it could you update the VIP rewards pleeeeaaase? 

    If there was a small bump up on the rewards I would probably buy it again.

    There are those of us that carefully structure our roster slots and don't go overboard with duplicate characters.  I wouldn't want to see my hard work be for nothing by having less thoughtful players being rewarded with a roster slot sale to further encourage their slot hoarding ways.  Wisely structuring your roster is part of the game strategy.


    Just say NO to roster slot sale

    I stand corrected......

    I also do not have enough dupes and remain below 300 for now, hopefully for a while (maxed 4s annoy me, firstworldMPQ problem).

    You do realize that a roster slot sale would benefit you as well. You may not need slots for duplicate characters but unless you only have 3 slots and rotate characters in and out of those slots you will eventually need a new slot. I don't see how having a sale on slots diminishes your "hard work" or "wisely structur[ed]" roster.

    I don't spend my HP frivolously.  I play until I have no health packs and then take a break.  I don't use a bunch of HP on shields in PVP.  I play for top HP rewards.  I've adapted my game around not wasting HP so that I can have some when I do need a roster slot for new releases.  Why should other people who can't manage their HP properly be rewarded with a bail out?

    Ditto. 0 HP for PVP shields (and 0 ISO for PVP skipping). Almost 0 HP for vaults with a bunch of 2*.

    Cheaper roster slots would benefit everyone, especially with their being reduced as rewards.
