That's because packing 40-50 avatars into a sim that has 100s of vendors isn't a very effective shopping model. Honestly, content creators are essentially giving their event sales a really limited sales ceiling especially within the first 3-5 days of an event.

I *get* that exclusivity is worth something in Second Life, but It's totally bananacakes that there haven't been more "events" like pocket gacha for "not gacha" content. I bet a lot of content creators would see a significant uplift in sales if everyone who wanted to buy a new release could get access to do so easily.

not sure why some content creators would be unhappy they don't get a cut of resales thru this system. They don't get a cut of these now resold thru other systems, like Marketplace for example
