  1. Sideroxylon added a post in a topic Cash shop too expensive, Reddit presence   

    Cash items would be barely acceptable, if DC would cost HALF price... I don't even know if the prices were acceptable, if the game would've been F2P in the first place. $30 for ONE costume is ridiculous and ill. Not only because it is the price for another game copy for my friend. Also it is funny how they simulate "discounts" like for example at this moment the stealth costume is put down to $25 in theory. But guess what, there is no option to buy just enough cash for $25, so in the end you are still stuck with spending $30 dollar for the $25 dollars costume, anyway. This method of money grabbing is too much. I really like the game and I wouldn't mind to pay $50 over the next few months for costumes and other gadget stuff. But it highly disencourages to buy anything from the cash shop, because $50 are apparently worth a dime for the cash shop owners. In fact I was about to buy a costume until I realized that one thing costs so much, actually.
    The point is: they are disencouraging many potential buyers because of too high prices for one rather simple thing. I would spend even more money, if I would get more value with it. But at this moment, I can barely think of buying even the smallest thing. Also the minimum DC price is $10 anyway, so even if you want to buy something for a dollar or half, you need to pay $10 in the end. I bought my wallet not them.
    Also this is only partially true, because you chose a wrong example. Riot Games for example requests money for skin re-colors. This is ridiculous. It's like asking a mathematician to by the way calculate 200 + 20 for you and he demands money for it.They could've told the community to do it, and it'd be free then, but look the same or even better. Heroes of the Storm is a better example, because after reaching a certain level on your hero you can buy a special Master Skin for him without letting the player pay any penny on the game. Several recolors are also included and not even hyped or anything. They are just there. Whereas Riot makes a big deal of recoloring skins, which anyone could do after watching a 1-hour YouTube tutorial about Gimp.
    That was just to clarify this specific example you mentioned.
