    Default Spooktacular Costumes...hmm...

    Is it just me, or is anyone else disappointed with the Spooktacular Costumes this year so far? I heard they were gonna release NEW costumes this year, but all I've seen is the same old costumes they had last year :/ They might still release some new ones before the end of Spooktacular, but I was hoping they'd have something new this year. I'm also a little upset they are doing the Vampires vs. Werewolves Dance-off again this year, I was hoping they'd come up with something new. I figured it would be done and over with, with the assumption that the dance-off was their answer to the Twilight movie series which are thankfully a bit less popular this year, I was at least hoping that if they were going to do Vampires vs. Werewolves again that they would give out new costumes, for example the wr-wolf costume from last year is much different than the wr-wolf costume from the old FR. Plus it is always fun to have something that feels a bit exclusive, and it was fun running around in my werewolf costume these past several months with everyone asking "how can I get that costume??" Grr now everyone will have it and it won't be fun anymore :/ I just feel like FR has gotten lazy, they used to change their holiday stuff up from year to year, especially from the first FR holiday season, but now they just recycle all their holiday stuff and it's starting to feel a bit stale.

    I was also disappointed when I found there were no new costumes in the SC marketplace this morning. However, according to Aang Darkway on another thread, "The REAL content will come next week..." <crossing fingers>

    I was also disappointed. . . . but I was VERY VERY disappointed AND angry that they didn't put the coin shop Halloween housing items in the coin shop.

    Yeah, I was all excited to go see, but this was seriously a let-down. Some of my complaints:


    1. What happened to the girl super hero costume? That was my favorite, and I was planning to get it this year. But hopefully Aang is correct and it will come next week.

    2. The dance-off is seriously unfair. The werewolf costumes come in a 900SC pack, and personally, I think SOE is crazy if they think I'll give up 9 bucks for a virtual costume. On the other hand, vampire costumes are available for as low as 200SC, and more people will be able to buy that, and therefore vampires will win constantly.

    3. Even the quests are the same! I wouldn't mind if the prizes were alike, but I was expecting maybe a new quest or something.


    Personally, I saw this as a sorry knock-off for last year, with more people and lag...

    We were told in the last FR webcast (and actually probably before that as well)... that there would not be any new quests this year, that everything would be the same.

    The only new items... costume pieces and pets... we were told would be added in an update next week. I would think that whatever else is missing will be added then also.
    Happy gaming!

    I really hope they will be adding new stuff this coming week...most of the costumes they have for sale I already bought last year :/ Well tomorrow is Monday so hopefully they add new stuff by the time I get home ^_^ I just went on the one long Halloween quest, the one with the spectral spectacles, last year I forgot to complete it. But since I bought a Skull Lantern off someone, FR didn't give me a Skull Lantern as an end prize :/ I was a little upset, if you didn't actually win an item on your character they should give it to you in a quest regardless. I know they come in different colors and I went on the quest hoping to get another one. Grr...
