Outfit Slots are a scam. I want my Crowns back

Ok I bought an additional outfit slot yesterday since they were on sale for 750 Crowns and I thought "Hey that might be a cool thing to have" only to find out they aren't account-wide.
Now, I see that this issue isn't really being discussed. Players are quietly accepting that fact and politely asking for ZOS make them account-wide in update X or Y.

Here's the thing: I didn't buy a consumable, I bought an upgrade and it shouldn't even be a discussion that that's account-wide!

For God's sake it's misleadingly advertised. Nowhere in the store does it say that this is only usable on one character while every other product there is account-wide, making us believe that would be the case for the outfit-slots as well.


Inb4 "they're a company, they gotta make money"-comments: We're customers, not ZOS' goddang accountants. And if a product is the only one in their store that's not gonna benefit all our characters they should advertise it as such in their store and not hidden in the FAQs.

    I would do research before you purchase anything from the Crown Stores. Plenty of threads covering the topic.

    Yup. Sometimes it's better to read forums before purchasing items from Crown Store, so you can avoid disappointment.

    You have a point though. If you buy service tokens, they sit on the char login screen so all chars have access to use them. But hey you know Z!

    And yet when it comes time to cash one in, it's still per character.

    The best OP can hope for it to have the outfit slot moved to his character of choice. It's still effectively a consumable.

    Caveat Emptor.

    Gotta third the suggestion to contact customer support and ask for a refund. The worst they'll do is say no.

    Exactly. But when one character uses them, they are gone. Not able to change all characters. Same with outfit slots, experience scrolls, Bank upgrades, etc.
    So whats the beef ?

    Everything you mentioned is available through ingame means, not requiring real money purchases

    Outfit slots are completely unavailable through ingame means

    Actually, Im pretty sure they say it outright on the purchase description. Your inability to read is not a scam

    I am not going to post a screen shot, since the Crown Store is available to everyone.

    "This unlocks 1 additional outfit. Outfits can be modified at any Outfit Station."

    No mention of character or account. There is no "bind on pickup" or anything else like that.

    And it is weird that Outfit Change Tokens are account wide whereas Outfit Slots are not.

    Yes but purchased through crown store also. Scrolls, Motifs, Name Changes, etc are ONE character.
    Don't understand the problem.

    I bought one for each of my character's during the sale but I have to agree something like this should be account wide for the price of each.

    Seriously why don't they make them account wide already? I hope the new monetization designer is smarter.

    The only logical and not money-driven reason I can think off to make them not account wide is that players can have anywhere from 8 to 15 characters per account. So if the Outfit Slots were 1500 crowns accountwide, someone with a base game account pays 187.5 crowns per character and someone with the current max of 15 characters only pays 100 crowns per character. Not to mention there might be issues with retroactively giving new characters those purchased outfit slots.

    Yup. Or if you don't do a forum search before buying crown store fluff, do a search before opening a complaint thread. You are spot on in your complaint, but your assertion that no one else has complained about this is quite wrong.

    ZOS are an absolute shitehouse of a company. Shameful they think 1500 crowns per outfit slot per character is acceptable. Says a lot more than it should regarding their view of the playerbase too.

    So 1000 crown for a +10 to mount speed/stamina/inventory per character is more acceptable? Clearly they've discovered with people willing to shell out for these, that they would equally shell out money for Outfit slots.

    Whatever example of ZOS violating the player base with their *** practises you want to use will always be one upped by another *** practise of ZOS violating the player base with a different *** practise.

    You could honestly forget this is a massive multimillion dollar company and not just some indie developer looking to make a quick buck with the way ZOS have been going about things. smh

    I kind of wonder if when they're having team meetings if someone throws these ideas up sarcastically and they just *** roll with it.
