As of right now, Im holding about 56 applications. Not all of them will be accepted(read the rules, people, seriously…). We technically have room for 80 stores so if you meant to apply, please do so.
I won’t have the time to look at these in any detail until the latter half of the weekend, as we are busy at Cursed Events getting A Tattered Page open today (and I have plans for tomorrow.) So no one freak out if you haven’t heard anything right away. I haven’t looked at them other than in a cursory fashion thus far. I do know that we (as always) got WAYYYYYYYY more sponsor requests than we have slots. Way more. We’ll make a waiting list like we do every year.
In other news, Jessica Lyon, the head of the Firestorm Team announced yesterday via their webpage that the group ban function (which is what we’re waiting on to create a group for shoppers and gacha traders) will likely not make it into the upcoming major Firestorm release update. If so, we’re really sorry, but we won’t have a shoppers group available for GxG. As soon as Firestorm can release it, we’ll do it, but not before. We’re waiting just like you are.
If we hear anything else, we’ll let everyone know.
In the meantime, in theory, the first acceptances for GxG will be going out at the early part of the upcoming week. Again, we still have some room, so you’re welcome to apply if you wanted to. But read the rules first. We’re not kidding about them.
