    It would be wise of Kano to increase the stats on this item a tad bit to increase the likelihood of your client base being interested in the purchase. The currant Limited quantity items have a total stat of 805/806 for 30-GF's. While i understand your raising donations for chosen charity, your asking people to spend 30-GF's for 803 atk/def total. Small petty amount of difference, I know. However if it were perhaps 20-30 points more, I believe you would see more people inclined to purchase.

    on a side note: I am glad i waited till this evening and seen the stat change that took place. I was going to buy 200 bucks worth. If the stats would have been lowered after I made my purchase i would have been severely angered. Im glad to see Kano will refund to those that spent money with the intentions of receiving a great item(s).

    What a sorry state of affairs that stats get in the way of people spending a few FP's on an item that will be donating a dollar to a worthwhile charity and bringing a smile to childrens faces this Christmas. In the grand scheme of things 30 FP's ain't much to help such a noble cause. For those demanding a refund because of the glitch or stats not being good enough you really should be ashamed of yourselves and your selfish, self-important attitude. Feel free to have a pop at me if you will, in this instance you don't have the moral high ground.

    If you went to a car dealership based on a printed ad for a vehicle you wanted, purchased it and then when it was delivered you find the dealership kept one of the four tires would you still feel the same or would you demand that fourth tire or a refund??? Same thing happened here, Kano advertised a weapon with 525 atk and 525 def, people bought but Kano delivered something less than the advertisement. Sure they called it a coding error(misprint).

    As a suggestion, for those of us that like items weighted in defense, how about a second item, say a Nut Cracker that has defensive load out?

    Great idea: would love to see some crate items come out as defense heavy as well, it's been well over a year!

    The Trains dropped on defense is same buy as regular items. They have great deals during holidays but offer same items for dollar charity. If the train was still 521-521 I would have bought. Its not worth it and KANO is still making a lot of profit on it.

    I'm all for helping charities that actually go to the intended charities but if the "Toy Train" is 30FP which is about $6-$8 and if $1 goes to charity then this just sounds like a marketing scheme. If you get a charity involved then everything should go to that charity especially when a short term imaginary cartoon picture means nothing to KANO.

    Give 100% to charity and I'll buy a few

    You are presuming that all people who buy the toy trains is a a Cash Spender.
    Since the toy is bought by FP, it means that people like me ( who cant or don't want to spend money in the game ) who have acquired the toy Train with FP(s) dont spend money and the money sent to charity is 100% supported by Kano.
    for one side 1$ is a small amount, but for other Kano must protect is accounts.
    If there was a toy Train acquired only by money, then i think Kano should give away 100% of the money.

    PS: sorry my bad English.

    I despair.. First of all I wondered why Kano couldn't just give ALL the money to the charity. I know it's priced in FP but you must know who pays for their FP and who doesn't but I guess charity begins at home, as always - or just make it available as a cash purchase only and you don't even need to do the sums- it's not difficult... Now we find the stats were incorrectly advertised in the first place. I wouldn't go so far as to say that was deliberate but it's not exactly professional.
    While on the subject of "good deeds", you have withdrawn the Memorial items, presumably because you don' t want your resources tied up inventing and doing the artwork, etc.. Although why you couldn't use boss drop items, etc, you're already preparing and just give them an honorific name, I don't know. The wall has all the hallmarks of a cheap and cheerful solution that didn't take much brainpower.
    Add the above to the level of contempt you displayed for long-term LCN players compared to the incomers from the mob game that was so successful it folded, all in all 2016 hasn't exactly been brilliant in terms of customer relations, has it?

    Not Here to defend Kano but ...
    I Have 30 FP then i buy 50 FP (before or After the Toy Train Announce), who Cost $7 . I Have 80 FP
    I buy a Toy Train (can only be bought With FP) 30 FP .....
    Did i bought the Train With the 1st 30 FP or the Seconds FP ?

    The Stats were a problem, but they solved it for the player , by refund the FP when requested.

    I Saw 521 -521 , Then see in my Stockpile 521-251 ... I dint like it but i can live with that after Kano assumed the problem.
    Dint asked a refund ..... If it was 0-0 i had bought 1 train just for help. (and im a no Spender, so 30 FP its means a lot to me ... :) )

    Happy Days to everyone.

    Probably this time next year, they have to subtract out all of the refunds they gave back to players.

    I saw in another thread that Kano was able to make a silver tier donation on our behalf, whatever that means.

    I've removed some posts here for what should be fairly evident reasons to the people who wrote them. I understand that this charity did not get off on the right foot, and there were some disagreements about how it was run but those sorts of comments are uncalled for.
