Shiai Tokens update
Hi, Shiai Tokens have received an overhaul!

As you may have noticed, your tokens are no longer inventory items but are an actual currency now.
You can see your ST balance in your account info page, and it will also be shown in game client's home screen with Toribash 5.41+


Shiai Token Exchange is gone too, but instead of waiting for staff to finally get you some new items to spend your tokens on, you can now buy any ex-USD item with Shiai Tokens at 1:1 ratio - any time! Any new items we release from this point onwards will also be available for ST as well as TC.

If you don't have enough ST to buy some items but want them right now because you're THAT impatient, you can purchase Shiai Tokens from Torishop here: http://forum.toribash.com/tori_shop.php?cid=84




This change is sort of a test run of how a "Premium currency" may work for Toribash opposed to direct USD payments for items. We'll be closely looking at feedback this overhaul receives and it'll be used to make the final decision whether this system should stay and later applied to TBN, or reverted back to old state.


As a final note, we'll be adding week-long discounts for select colors starting next week, so keep an eye on shop sales - maybe you can grab some Demon stuff for just a few ST!
Also wait, so does this mean we'll be able to use Shiai Tokens to trade with eachother soon?

Not really, because items that cost 35$ on torishop definitely aren't worth 35$

They are if you want to have it without having the required Qi.
Obviously something different if you have enough Qi or if you're looking to buy stuff to resell it.
It does give low qi players the chance to get high-qi colors, which is nice I guess

Holy shish, that's quite interesting one.
Also, will some sets like Impure/Sakura/Spring etc return to ToriShop using new Shiai system or they still stay as limited edition ones?
