      Can you clarify why referral reward Alpaca is returning as a reward for playing some crystals??

      Why are you undermining people holding those items.

      For alpacas- increasing circulation by 5-10 a season is not going to undermine the market. Tigers and other rare recruiter (mounts) skins does devalue it, but with the prices asked, it is hurting it too significantly.
