You can very much argue that our forums are a minority of the voices, and you're right. But you can talk to people in-game, check out the complaints on the APAC facebook page from the time, people didn't like it. You can run around saying 'it wouldn't be there if people didn't buy it' until you're blue in the face but someone earlier in the thread said something magical that no one seems to have picked up on; "it costs them nothing to leave them in the shop".
To say our community, even a majority, want these costumes is wrong and shows your ignorance. The simple fact is very few people have listened to our community members in this thread, because they very much believe their opinion is worth more than ours. Most people haven't bothered to try and look at the reaction from our community on any platform (forums, facebook, etc). This discussion is very telling of how people view our community. Kudos to Merriden for trying to see our responses in-game, but keep in mind that we also have access to non-stat permanent versions of Infuntry and Justice costumes making it difficult to spot the rental-stat costumes.
