-‘바이 투 플레이’라는 진입 장벽이 있음에도 불구하고 여전히 많은 유저들이 게임패스를 구매하고 있다. 또한, 캐시샵 아이템 가격이 비교적 높은 편인데, 이런 캐시 아이템에서도 많은 매출이 나오고 있다. 이런 것을 보고 지금의 트렌드가 적어도 올해에는 계속 유지될 것이라고 확신하고 있다.

While the game is “buy to play,” many users are still purchasing game pass. Furthermore, even though cash items are relatively expensive, we are maintaining large revenue and we predict that current trend will last until end of this year.

TL;DR: Daum will not make costumes cheaper. They are swimming in money from whales buying both sets of Kibelius outfits for one character and spending hundreds on the dye system. They are aware that it is expensive and they have no intention to change it.

While I agree that costumes are overpriced, I don't think any amount of discussion will ever bring about change when Daum is making money anyway. Therefore it is pointless to talk about it any further.

I am just glad the company selling the items acknowledges they are "relatively expensive", so I can ignore any more "it is the same price as every other cash shop!!!!"

Yeah, they're whaling. And like most whales, our whales just can't help themselves and are easily taken advantage of by people with few scruples.

So people complain if its Play to win,   and then complain to pay for costumes.    I bought every costume for my tamer among other items.   Maybe people should quit wanting things and work towards a better job to afford the item.

and speaking of b2p expansions.  I hope they do make buy to pay for future expansions.  Ones that will not be connected to current world chats also.  That will not allow access with the 7 day keys.

Is it possible that the "whales" also known as people that can/have bought costumes are the actual majority and not the other way around...?

Note: I only have what came with Conqueror's and wouldn't really call myself a whale =z

I expected a pathetic comment about not having or not having a good enough job would come up. Was not disappointed.

If it keeps dye as the only item in gamble boxes and no selling cash hop items on the marketplace, fine with me.

Where the hell did this term "whale" (in this context) come from anyway, I can't recall seeing it in any of the other places I visit online. Is it a new thing? A game specific thing?

Your funny. It's pathetic that people like you always assumes people who complain about the CS prices do not have a job or do not have a good enough job. When the fact of the matter is that those people (myself included) see spending that much money on 1 character bound outfit is way overpriced and a waste of money.

Yes, but if they keep that up, sooner rather than later, whales become extinct.

people need to find ways to justify their foolish spending habits on overpriced virtual goods, so they say it's fine because they have a job.

Outfits at 15 a pop would be plenty to support the game. Don't fool yourself.
