    You don't seem to have chosen in what character that medal should go. Maybe that's the problem.

    EDIT: Oh found the problem. Medals can only be bought with NX Prepaid. RIP.

    You gotta get your account modded to where everything you buy counts as prepaid. Golden snail or something is what it used to be called. Try asking for it in a support ticket~

    I bet that's just how they force you to use nx prepaid to get it.

    They won't let you purchase it with nx credit, presumably because it's much faster to get nx credit (Possibly with stolen cards) on a compromised user account and trade away their pets.

    that's a precaution so only people who have nx prepaid can buy the pet. you have to get karma koin or something

    its nexon's way of trying to screw us Canadians over. try to get us to spend more money. i remember when it was $10 for 10k nx. not its 7800 for $10.

    i brought this up a few years ago as to why they are scamming us and i got a lousy excuse from one of their mods.

    Did it have something to do with exchange rates? Canadian fun bucks are worth about 73% of a USD. If they allowed 1 for 1 purchases in Canada then people with USD would convert online and purchase all their nx with CAD and profit off of your guys's currency.

    To be honest, I think the problem is that pets are technically characters, and if someone got access to your steam account, credit card info and all, they could steal your pets.

    I'm not saying I like it. I'm just saying that's what I think the reasoning behind the decision is.

    Do you all really not understand conversion rates? Nexon went a long time letting Canadians have extra nx from karma koin. So, if anyone was screwed or scammed it would be everyone that bought USD karma koin using USD currency before it was equalized by nexon.

    Conversion rates, something that doesn't just exist for gaming, is now scamming? People don't understand what a scam is now adays and seem to enjoy throwing that word around alot.
