Before we start talking about things I have to quote something here:
Regarding the skins we got this answer. It’s worth to mention that some other cm’s already talked about skins and one of them even said that skins are not really important.
You can look up for the exact comment about this in this topic:
You have this business model which is built on real money exchange for materials and you think that skins are not important?
Do you guys even play videogames?
Riot Games is literally making a fortune just by selling skins and other cosmetic things and that’s the the tip of the iceberg. Did you see the Call of Duty ingame shop? Fortnite? Any of those ring a bell?
Do you even know how much money is spent on skins in these games? Well, me neither… but I can guess, cause well… I have eyes? I bet you have more resources than me for market research so maybe use those.
My question is:
Wouldn’t be the obvious step in this case to rehaul the shop and instead of focusing materials, go with a cosmetic shop approach?
If not: Why?
I think if you would remove the material/real money exchange from the shop and every P2W aspect along with that, people wouldn’t even mind to pay for new classes for example. Of course, as long as we could grind currency for them ingame too.
Also the statement from @Roxx is such a silly excuse. Just imagine if Riot Games would only release skins when those skins would be available for all the champions.
You do not need to mod them, we are perfectly fine with the skins which are available in KR. You can release your own and modified skins on a later date and even censore those into the woke hell, I don’t care personally as long as they are additional contents.
People wont get mad if you release skins (your example) but scrapper and gunslinger wont get too much yet, they just want skins and a business model built around cosmetics.
Honestly, you should really fire your hire ups if they couldn’t even do this kind of market research.
But let me bring you a small example here… maybe it will be representative:
So, guys: If you would rather have a cosmetic based shop just leave a #cosmeticshop in your comment, thanks!
For the smartasses: Yeah, I know this game is like that in KR, but I’m not from there and I wont be. I’m fine with cosmetic shop and yes, they can make this change if they work on it.
If they not, they can at least start releasing freakin skins.
Oh my f. GOD! Just read this! Just read this and think about it how incompetent is this company. They want more data! Cause the forum is only a minority! How … are they? These people are working in this industry and my God they have 0 knowledge about their own work.
What date? You have the same payerbase as Riot Games, as Square Enix as Activision-Blizzard. They already gathered all the data needed what this audience likes not.
They already walked the path before you and you even fail to copy their homework? My god…how is that possible that some people can still something like that in this industry?
This is the very sad truth…
