Lets add a bit more details for Daum to go off of.

 

Theres been alot of discussion in the official CBT2 Cash Shop thread and i took all the differing opinions i could think to generalize into a few poll options.

 

Id love to see how his tallies up all in one place instead of having to read 800+ replies.

 

You can select multiple options.

I am willing to spend MORE money if stuff gets MORE expensive.

That's right. I want rare stuff and I have a considerable disposable income. Thanks.

Prices are high. I could afford it but not willing to spend it considering what I'm paying for.

Sure it's not required but it's a great quality of life in game. Why make those quality of life items catered to 10% of the customers and not all?

Gas was a buck 40 when I was nearing the end of my compulsory education. I remember those days fondly, on occasion, while filling up at the pump.

It's only slightly overpriced in my opinion.   However,  I expect the prices to remain the same.  People will buy it regardless if they like the game,  just over a period of time.  Daum isn't interested in catering to peasants,  this is clearly a game for nobles.

Prices are abusive, we need MAJOR reduction in pricing. You can't price a costume 32€ while the game costs 30€ 1.0

I would say that if the items you are talking about were cosmetic, but with overpriced pets I can't agree. Pets are a core-feature and for actually having 4 Tier 3 pets you would have to spend hundreds of euros/dollars/pounds/other currency. Some categories are -----ed up, but other prices in my opinions are ok (costume only need small adjustment imo)

Just because you cannot buy everything for an amount you feel is "right" doesn't mean that the items are overpriced. Everyone is not meant to have everything. 

If anything I would say reduce the costume costs a tad, but other than that I feel that the prices are fine the way they are.

I was thinking this too. I'm making decent money, and can certainly afford it, and if that makes it all the more exclusive, then great. On the other hand, regardless of how much money you've currently got and have coming in, spending carelessly is a really bad habit to develop and indulge. So I'm torn.

I honestly didnt even think of this. Sorry about that guys. I didnt see alot of statements about this thought. Didnt mean to alienate you guys.

If outfits with weapons were selling for $10~$15 per i would probably buy some for all of my  characters.
But With them being $32 or so  i think i'm ok with a pet or two and the in game gear.

Republicans love the cash shop pricing. Just think of all that trickle down quality we'll get to enjoy.

Yesterday I was sitting on the pre-order page in the other tab of my browser when I read the notes and saw the cash shop prices. It stopped me from pre-ordering at that time, and I honestly can't see myself jumping in unless the cash shop prices are significantly decreased.

I'm not opposed to cash shops, even in games that are B2P. I've dumped plenty of money into MMO's over the past 18 years, including into cash shops, but that doesn't mean I'll just pay whatever. If what I'm receiving in return does not feel reasonable for the price I'm having to pay, I'll refrain from buying.

When I played AA I bought subscriptions, since they gave me plenty in return. I bought outfits I liked, because they were fairly priced. But when I bought a RNG chest, that was the one and only RNG chest I have ever and will ever buy (it contained crap items). I don't consider gambling with real money to be enjoyable. Thankfully the RNG cash shop items in BDO don't seem to be the norm', with the dyes (and pet stats) being the ones that stick out. But beyond the RNG, the items are just wildly overpriced. I'm not going to get 2 months of enjoyment out of a costume, yet that's the equivalent I'd be expected to pay (in terms of a subscription to a MMO).

I truly hope they reevaluate the prices because I really want to play this game. Pre-ordering at this point though feels like I'm setting myself up to get burned.

This thread, Christ. Take your pissing contest elsewhere. 

 

Anyway, these prices are ridiculous. I've already invested money to play the game, why am I being drained for more for something as vain as a costume?

So you just use it to fap.

Thanks for answering my question. That'd be all!

That's a shame I wouldn't mind listening to your lady-boy encounters.

I wouldn't mind if the full costume(Costume and weapon) were at max 25 bucks as opposed to the 32.  The costume only would be at 20 bucks or a bit less(Currently at 22).  Otherwise I hail from the mindset that the current prices are what's needed to avoid p2w/rng boxes/selling of cash items for silver and etc.  

It could simply be a little game with the community as well, release high prices, gauge reactions, reduce by 20% to what they were suppose to be.

We can still do that.

So you are one of those guys who consider themselves a girl. Just do the deed and you can become another one of my encounters.

I think 25 is still too high considering they are only one time use. I would prefer 10-15, at least this would give room to buy new costumes later since no one really wants to stick to the same costume forever.

Just so you know, I wore the vampire costume in ArcheAge for a full year; there are people that do this if nothing else interests them.

The probably with full costumes is that they cost more than the base game.
