    Hi everyone,

    Players from across our gaming communities have been asking us to host fundraisers for a while, and I’m happy to say that this holiday season we’ll be doing just that!

    Starting on Monday, December 12th at 10am and going until Friday the 16th at 6pm, the Toy Sword will be available for purchase with FP. For every Toy Sword sold a percentage will be donated to Child’s Play, an organization that helps children through play.

    Since 2003, Child’s Play has been improving the lives of sick children and their families by providing video games, toys, and other fun stuff for kids to the hospitals, therapy facilities and support houses where they stay. These donations give kids the opportunity to enjoy age appropriate entertainment, interact with peers, friends and family, and offers a much needed distraction from what generally is an unpleasant experience.

    We’re hoping that together across all our communities we can raise a lot of money and help a lot of kids!

    For more information on Child’s Play please visit their website http://childsplaycharity.org/.

    This promotion runs for 5 days, so everyone should be able to get a chance to get one if they want.

    Hey Sus, it's $1 for every item sold, and since you can buy these items with FP, not directly with cash, you're able to play to earn FP, which will still result in $1 donated per item purchased!

    Lets see the problem for the other side....
    IF you are a player who don't spend money and you acquire one or more Toy Train then Kano is losing money ....
    They don't force you to spend Money. They force you to spend FP that can be earned in the game without spending money.

    Kano should just show good faith and put the stats back to what it was, before they even knew they were wrong, it is the right thing to do

    The stats for the train were reduced - a coding error apparently :/

    Small point of clarification, the items themselves always had the correct stats (for example, the VC item was always 566A 305D), it was the pop-up that had the incorrect information.

    I know that doesn't make this any better and believe you me, we all feel terrible about the mix-up and regret getting our charity drive off to such an inauspicious start. We are handling any and all returns for people who want them through Support.
