Prices on Lamborghini are insane too.

Luckily you won't die if you don't buy one, therefore you don't need it.

You're actually comparing a BDO costume with a Lamborghini now?

That's a fact pulled out of your a$$. People are just annoyed because we all wanted to get at least one costume, and it turns out we have to give it a second thought due to it's ridiculous price.

Its not a fact its an observation, hence the word "seems".

Appears you share the same deficiency as many of the Cash Shop whiners, a lack of basic comprehension skills.

That's too bad. Perhaps save your money up and buy one next month or the month after?

I say lower the prices a bit else it will be hard to make money with BDO Cash Shop.

And from my experience games that were sub/b2p become f2p after having a Cash Shop with ridiculous prices, If they lower the price on the items to an acceptable amount BDO will survive for a long time as b2p, but if they keep this up they might be forced to make the game f2p.

'A lack of basic comprehension skills' Right, right.

That comes from the guy who compares a lambo to a virtual costume?

What in the world makes you believe that we, the people who oppose the current cash shop prices are merely whining? We are literally presenting solutions to the devs in order to improve not only the relations between them and the players, but also to increase the cash projected by the shop, a thing that is expected by a possible cost reduction.

That is not classified as 'whining' but constructive criticism rather; But you do not seem to grasp it, an irony don't you think.

Can't say there is much value in the Cash Shop at these prices.

If everything was half off then maybe, or if there were daily/weekly sales of stuff at 75%-90% off.

Or make everything have a mileage/loyalty cost too but make it very high, like 2 months of logins for a costume.

Or... a pearl currency exchange with a limit on how many you can buy/sell per calendar month since its pretty much admitted they would make Cash Shop items buyable in-game in the market some time after launch.

What solutions?

There's a myriad of posts regarding them, as well as a vast number of threads. But for instance, an immediate discount on the prices serves as a viable solution.

How so? How is it viable? Have you proof that the numbers of people who will pay at these prices is so much less than who would if it were cheaper that it would be worthy of a discount?

Can you genuinely provide evidence to this statement?

Well this is still CBT2 guys, I say just give your feedback about Cash Shop in the sticky thread and hope they change things after release.

If not then well.. go ahead and refund if you want, nobody will stop you at all.

There's a poll if you haven't noticed, and I'm sure that all these people asking for a price reduction are not posting for the heck of it, they actually want to spend cash.. ok.

There's 500k+ preorders if you haven't noticed.

The "poll" is irrelevant in terms of actual evidence.

Nope, there isn't 500k+ preorders lol, I have no idea how'd you come up with that, then again even if the number is that high it's still a fact that most of the people who preordered the game are annoyed at best by the unreasonable pricing, you just can't question that one pal.

There's just a handful of ppl like yourself who'd buy stuff with no consideration of it's price, but that's not how the rest of the world works.

Even if there were 50k the numbers in the polls would not be usable data as ANYONE can vote. Even free players and even trolls.

I buy things with consideration, thats why I save up. If I can't afford it I don't buy it.

I don't whine like a little girl.

Conqueror pack. With this prices I will buy +2 pets, +150LT and that's it. With lower prices I would have spent monthly 30-40euros. Bow man, their math is fkd up if they think this way they will have more income than with cheaper prices.

Someone needs to be fired.

Or their marketing team promoted if after this they will "listen to the community" and lower the prices with around 30% so everyone shuts up and will be grateful. Psychology...

Honestly if they would fix the dyeing and remove costume set bonuses (so we can mix and match while min & max) I'd be spending a lot more. As it is it's just pets 1 costume for the right stats and underwear for luck. if we could mix match costumes better I would be buying more of them since I like some parts but not others.

Colors are just ****** right now they need to overhaul that. Won't be spending a dime on that random one time use junk.

Atm I'm only willing to pay 20 euros to get my pets. If prices were cheaper I'd definitely invest some money into costumes etc. as well.

ok lets be honest here, i think there has to be done a little bit with the prices. i would say like 15$ for a costume with weapon maybe 20$.... but if it stays that way, we probably spend money on it anyway.... so

I don't understand the logic of these posts. They make it sound like everyone is buying the game for the sole purpose of buying items in the cash shop. Nevermind the massive game that you recieved when you bought the game.

If the items in the cash shop are to high, the company will see it's impacting expected revenue and lower them. If they stay high, that means obviously means they are meeting or exceeding expect income and no change is required.

I would love to buy things from cash shop if I get enough value out from it, with current prices I won't be buying anything. Also I won't be gambling my money on dyes with the current system, they need to be permanent unlockables and account wide or let us choose specific dye.

i hate the fact you have to buy pets from teh cash shop, because they are not a cosmetic thing only. they actually can DO stuff and help your character evolve, also you need more pets to breed, which will cost even more money. i really dont like that idea.... they should at least give as an opportunity to get a pet from an ingame vendor for silver or a quest or something.
