    If you have a bundle and were thinking of upgrading, this sale might make sense. But as noted above, bundles right now are a pretty poor value even at the sale price (I say this having bought many bundles before they broke them apart) since everything but the tax free deed can now be purchased on the add on store for relatively little.

    I would say if the bundles are all expired, either new ones will pop up or tax free POT deeds will become available on the add on store by themselves - there is no way they will just get rid of a way for people to purchase those given the dollars involved. My thought is lot deeds will become individual items, given that everything else has become available.

    You can buy a viking town bundle now on sale for $1,200 that comes with a lot of stuff a player probably does not really want or need, or go buy a commission free vendor on the store for $39, a couple of crafting stations for $50, and lets say another $100 worth of the deco items in the bundle you may want. POT TF Town lot deeds are selling for $400 or less on the marketplace, so if you pick one of those up you are at about $600. Unless you really want to throw extra money to the devs, those bundles are not even close to the value they are selling them at even now on sale.

    Greetings all. During a Livestream/Telethon they talked about removing all the current bundles from the add-on store except for 1 they would rotate. So Viking one month, Elven the next etc. The current bundles would rotate but still be upgrade able. They also talked about how the current bundles would not be on the COTO vendors but they were going to put non-upgradeable bundles on the COTO vendors instead. I am sure they have not decided what is going to be in the new non-upgradeable bundles. That would probably closer to E2 funding time. Anyway the new bundles might be a better deal.

    I dont expect them to be soon just that they have said they will do more bundles and the pirate one is one they would like to do next.

    Pirate bundle and navigable waters would be ideal timing.(before u go nuts I am not saying navigable waters are com8ng soon)

    Personally I don't see the issue. I have bought a couple bundles myself. More and more I'm seeing the individual items in the add on store.

    Unless they are also expiring the individual digital assets, I think we'll be fine.

    I always wondered if the current bundles might sunset, in favor of new pledges for Episode 2 like we used to have for Episode 1. Imagine, a new series of pirate pledges: Freeloader, Marauder, Raider, Buccaneer, Swashbuckler, and Corsair all with pirate themed water-lot housing and ships aimed at promoting Episode 2 island life. And pledges based around a horse culture too. Sky could be the limit here. But the Episode 1 packages were somewhat in the way of promoting something new and exciting for episode 2 fundraising, IMHO.
