Raising Outfit Prices

14 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

It might have happened a while ago, but I've just noticed that they raised the prices of the most popular outfits to 3400 Pearls, which means you can't get them for just one Pearl box. You now have to spend €40 to get an Ayo or an Order of the Apricot, if you never managed to get them through the MP.

I'm not sure if they did this to incentivise the selling of other, more rare outfits, or prices will be slowly but surely creeping up higher. At the moment, this seems like a positive change, but make no mistake, prices are already too high, and raising them higher will not make me want to return to a game that I've been playing solely afk for the past 2 months or so. It is hard for me to play this game now, because I'm sick and tired of AH sniping and gathering among other things. The Loyalty rewards also began to suck and if it weren't for the BS Adventure event, I would probably not even spend any time in the game other than getting my daily Loyalties.

Wut.  The premium outfits with awakened skin have always been $34.

But still, 40euros for a single outfit is way overpriced.

I agree they're very expensive. I wish costumes were a bit cheaper but, they'll charge what people will pay.

€30 was the basic package of the game and I should've picked that one, but no..., I thought it was worth more and they deserved more support. Little did I know outfits would be restricted to real-money purchases and a single one will cost €40. Fool me once... I'm not buying 2 boxes for 1 outfit. :P

Actually, on second thought, it doesn't matter what you pay for. We might say in the MMO world today it's reasonable to charge customers €15 a month as a sub fee. Pay that and you get an outfit every two months. One can think of it like that. BUT outfits costing €30-40 on top of an existing sub, that is too much.

This just all reminds me of when i was playing XIV, all those people would ----- and moan about a $15 mount, or little things that would cost $1-$10, but here those people would die lol

I've been playing another game for 4 years, where you either pay a $15 monthly sub or like $200 to unlock everything and no sub needed. Outfits are $2 a piece. No constant milking with various resets and repairs. They never heard of that sort of thing. People consistently call that game "the most expensive MMO". I was that way, too. But after playing this game, I can tell you BDO is like 10 times more expensive. I feel so stupid about -----ing there now. I almost feel sorry for the company.
