Is there any hope for the mascot shop to be completely implemented into the game? Or at least part the shop into different sections so you can still visit one part even though another is being edited? As far as I notice it, it happens pretty often that you are unable to open the shop.
The suggestion has been sent in a while ago, but no forwards about it yet.
My assumption as to why Buddy Garden (items) , Mascot (items) are only obtained via Webshop was in order for our server to obtain these features quickly as per when they were requested, adding them into a certain feature like the webshop would've been the best bet over waiting for it to be implemented in the game, OR in order for our server to be different , webshop would be used effectively if there were multiple sections to purchase items from. There would be more of an incentive to buy things from there since having a webshop feature was requested for a long while.
I would assume they'd be working on how to only take down parts of the site if there are errors or promotional changes within a certain "Shop" so they don't have to take down that whole entire section. It's always been under the "Notes" that things can change at any point, so it's entirely up to them if they want to keep these features up or not or change where they're displayed.
Other than that, I'm sure the WebShop will be open again soon but only the GMs can notify us of this for sure when it'll be, or it'll just pop up randomly LOL . It's the New Year and people are just getting back into the swing of things after the holidays so there might be new things planned for them to release or update. I'd assume that's why they gave us an end of the year attendance event and extended event channel as well.
