this is not the game, it's the optional cash-shop.when you want to discuss the game, discuss the actual game.

This can't be true. This game couldn't exist without the cash shop. I'd go even further and state that the whole point of this game even existing is so people can cash shop. Game isn't complete without it. (some would argue the game is still incomplete regardless - but that's a whole 'nother discussion)

As a nobody who cares about outfits unless it gives special bonuses I want, I would probably buy more outfits if it unlocked for all characters on my account.

They can not unlock costumes for other classes because some costumes doesn't have counterpart. Only option is lower the price.

This.

If I buy a costume for my Human Warrior, how would that transfer to other races when no other race can be a Warrior?

Every class has the Karlstein, for exemple.
Only a few costumes are class specific



Back to the subject : I was myself told that the CS prices would be cheap during Paris Games Week presentation (I helped show the game at the convention.)
I feel like I was told to blatantly lie to all the people I "sold" the game to. I was also told that there would be no Pay to Win whatsoever.
In the end, we have 30€ costumes with stats on them.
You could say "it's only XP, stamina and durability things", and I would say : stamina is super important in PvP, so there's that. Then XP wouldn't be a matter ONLY if the game was hard capped, but it isn't, and levels are super important in PvP as well.

Then again, on the price itself : 30€ for a single costume you can use only on ONE character on ONE server is far too much. From a marketing / sales point of view, this kind of price tag doesn't make any sense, as it's a price where people really start to thing about whether they should buy the thing or not (and most of the time, they then think that it's not)
A 5 to 10€ price tag, as it should have been from the start for a one character only costume, is a price that actually makes sense : It's the price range of compulsory buy. It's the range where you don't really think about your spending, and just buy the thing.
How many of you have bought steam games at 5€ and never even played them ? Yeah, thought so.

Apart from conqueror pack skins, i'm not seeing that much costumes around. The vast majority of the players haven't bought costumes, and I bet it's because of the price tag that is just too high.

Prices are too high and aimed at the most hardcore players, the vast majority of the player base seem to not buy them
Hardcore players are the most volatile player base, and you should never place your income bets on them alone.

TL;DR : Lower prices > A lot more compulsory sells
I'd be voting for really low prices or a tad lower server wide prices.

I just have a hard time justifying the costume and its meager bonus being the same price I paid for the game. If they were 10-15 bucks I'd probably get one for all my alts and multiple when blader comes out for it. They're selling fine though so there's no incentive for a business to lower prices without a study proving they can make more by lowering the prices.

Speak for yourself

Nope, it's you

If you wanted to see what people think, then go read the other threads. Again, learn to search.

Are you a mod? No stop policing the forums; it's not your job.
