Dear Milletians,

We are pleased to announce that the issue found during our October 24th maintenance has been fixed. VIP and Premium are now back in the webshop for purchase! Additionally, the Essential Erinn Pack is also available for purchase. Thank you for your patience during the short time that VIP and Premium were unavailable

    awesome, really looking forward to getting VIP again now that it is updated. but it looks like the details about Premium and VIP offers needs to be updated as well as it currently just lists the old features.

    The announcement says VIP/Premium Sale, yet they are being offered at the usual price. I'm confused; how is this a sale?

    A sale doesn't necessarily mean a promotion or a rebate. It's notifying us that VIP is back for sale, as in an exchange of a good or service for currency.

    By the dictionary that may be the case, but it's still misleading. Somehow, this explanation doesn't help, but at least now they don't have to answer for themselves, and that's what's really important here.

    I am a merchant and I will place this set of items on sale. I will place that set of items in stockpile.

    This item for sale has a discount, that item for sale does not have a discount. The item over there is not for sale.

    Should they have added sale at regular price?

    Typically if something is to be sold at a reduced price, the language used to advertise this by merchants, not just Nexon is: (Thing) Sale. It is an understood language convention to customers that the good or service will be offered at a reduced price. In this case, after being absent from the shop for a week, the language used could've been say: VIP/Premium "now available" or "is back", or words to that effect. Having been unavailable for a while after an unanticipated extended maintenence, seeing VIP/Premium Sale which is typical language used for discount promotions this could easily have been mistaken as precisely that not only because of the language used but because of the recent troubles.
