How much Have you Spent?

125 posts in this topic

I've spent $10 to buy the game, and nothing more. If they want me to spend money in the cash shop, they'll have to lower the prices, because as it is, I'm not spending more money on an outfit than I did on the game itself.

@OP You should not post pictures of your account information. You are only opening yourself up to compromise and possible attempts at account theft.

Furthermore, such a topic...is just bad taste. :/

while i doubt we have had or are having such an issue, account safety is everyones on responsibility and posting details that only you or the company can see, is just opening a possible can of worms for yourself

In addition to the cost of the game, I think $100. But after my experience with the Red Nose armor and Halloween Candy crap, nothing else from this point on. Then again I only really want the Value Packs and I can get them off the MP with silver just fine.

I agree, he should've blanked parts. But then the nature of this post... I'm not surprised.

but they said they had no intention too.

Not true, in fact they actually foreshadowed it in early announcements. People just believe whatever they want to.

How much have you spent???

Wow....I spent $100 for the founder and bought $30 worth of pearls.  I would have spent way more too but when "pay for power" stuff came out I made myself stop spending.

If game goes a year without more "pay for power" stuff coming out I believe at that point I will end my self imposed moratorium and buy some of the costumes I have been wanting for a while and a maid.

what pay for power? im sorry, i know there many different opinions on what constitutes pay2win but there is certainly no "power" items in our cash shop regardless of what individual opinions are. I'm sorry to be so straight forward on the matter, but until there are potions in the shop that increase attack power or speed, or items that Garuntee upgrade success, you will never change my mind on the subject.

now the costume tailoring coupons we could argue over, but in terms of a "power item"? No.

In this game money is turned into power.  I don't think anyone disputes that you can pay to save money or pay for costumes that sell for money

aka pay for power(money)

anyway I didnt come to have this same debate again for the 1000th time.

Not-so-fun fact:

If you spend 3000 USD on pearls and use it all on Artisan's Memory (450 pearls @10 pieces(also given that you'll actually need that many, which you won't)) you'll get 7666 Artisan's Memories. With each indirectly saving 1.5m silver (@750k per Memory Fragment and only if used on boss gear) you're looking at over 11.5B silver saved at the end :D Not p2w

If i spend anywhere near that much, it certainly isnt going to be in one blow and certainly not all on AM's.  The amount o players that do spend upwards in that scale are far significantly less than the players that "nickle and dime"

An MMO publisher actually budgets and plans on players that spend less occassionally than those that spend more less often.  The micro-transaction model is based on players spending small amounts on a regular basis, rather than large amounts all at once. Although the larger blips do greatly help speed along company progression.

I agree, though I never suspected anyone to do this in the first place, especially considered 7.6k Artisan's is overkill.. I'd say on average you need to repair 200-250 durability on a boss item going 0-TRI (even if it's off by 50-100 either way, you can assume the approximate price at the end), that's ~75 Memory Fragments used with Artisan's, times that with 8 pieces of boss gear you need 600 AM. With each saving 1.5m that's 900m saved, which is like 3-4 hours grinding daily for a month. All this for about 250 USD. Correct me if I'm wrong :) 

In MY opinion this is by far the most P2W feature we have, it saves you silver instead of providing you with it, but the end result is the same. I'm not saying it's a bad thing, I quite enjoy having this option and I've been using it myself and it has saved me from going impatient sometimes.

Edit: Sorry miscalculated, it's 75*7 which is 525 and then 525*1.5 = 787,5m.
