    I would love to see LTO items in the the store. I bet they would be very successful sellers as well.

    Example: this super sick House/carpet etc. Hits the store with a 2 week timer then its gone forever.

    True rares and funds the game win win for everyone.

    LTO?

    The issue with creating very short limited time offers is that you may not recoup the cost of their creation.

    I would rather see them during special event times in game, whether that's holidays or other special events related to the story such as the Cabalist events/special seasons/daily rares/one time events per year etc..

    I like the idea of limited time offers. Moreover, I like the idea of limited quantities in the neighborhood of 250 to 500. I know I would probably fall victim to some of those items. :D

    Limited time offerings are a slippery slope, and I think developers need to be careful with how they offer them.

    Obviously Star Citizen has had a wildly successful funding campaign, but they have used the "limited" term very liberally, continually making the previously-limited items available for sale again. Many people have argued it is good for the game because of the money it generates, but to me it feels like a borderline dishonest method of fundraising.

    I think any limited store item should be available for a significant enough period of time to give everyone a realistic chance of buying it the first time around. No 1 or 2 week sales where people will come back from vacation and realize that they have missed their chance. I would give everything a month at a minimum, and possibly much longer. Also, once that time limit expires, that same item should NEVER be available again.

    These items if LTO should also be unique, and not offered again once the sale is over.

    Limited Time Offers.

    Yes, I agree these could be also fun and effective fund raises for the game.

    Provided, as other said, they are within reason and don't upset apple carts.

    Oh! that's clever. I'd feel the tug to buy those, too. Even if I wasn't passionate about the item.

    I would like to see LTO's also, having one available for the duration of each hangout would be a good starting point ;)
