I'm sure everyone knows what i'm talking about, thats right. The throwback thursday april fools mounts. And all i wanted to say is...Why only one day? Even if it makes sense because it's throwback thursday not throwback week or something, but still, doesn't it seem a little unfair for those who have been asking for this for ages (including me) and only being able to get them for one day? I mean like..Some people aren't able to get crowns right then and there. Oh well..That's all i wanted to say.

It is Throwback ThursDAY for a reason. Don't get me wrong, I wanted to get the Mighty Steed mount, but I have no computer access at the moment, so I'm missing out, too.

I see your point about players being unable to get Crowns on such short notice. Many younger players don't have 'instant access' to the means to purchase Crowns and Crown Shop items at a drop of the Tricorne. So, if a sale is announced, such as the Throwback Thursday Sale, on the actual day of the sale, it can be tough for some players to get the goodies and they'll be left waiting till the next surprise announcement.

Perhaps KI could give a heads-up announcement a few days to a week before sales of the '1 Day Only' variety come up. Of course, giving the heads-up without actually revealing what the goodies are. That way players who need to work the weekend to earn some money/crowns or need to give their parents a few days to think over whether or not they want to allow Crowns purchase, can take better advantage of the sale. Maybe KI can just post/tweet/FB a 'Coming Soon- 1 Day Only Sale' (without ruining the surprise) and then players can be ready and waiting.

But then again......KI does regularly have the nearly week long Crowns Sales (of different varieties) that allow the players ample time to ask and work for Crowns Purchasing. Maybe take advantage of those Crowns sales and then just save the Crowns up for when the '1 Day Only Sales' pop up. But it can be tough to save up when new pets and goodies keep making their way into the game...all requiring you to resist the temptation to fork over some of those Crowns, that may be meant for saving.

I do think that you make a very valid point though...especially when it comes to these Throwback Sales, because they seldom happen. Players who need time to ask or work for the Crowns may very well never be able to enjoy the goodies these kinds of sales offer.

Well yeah, but still like valkoor said they could've given us a heads up maybe? That would've been nice.

True enough, but they never have in the past when there was a one-day sale either here or on Wizard101. Perhaps they'll take his suggestion for a nice heads-up in the future.

From a marketing perspective, it creates a sense of urgency. "There's only one day? It must be special then!"
