EDIT: Please, supporters, leave a comment as well so the post don’t sink.
EDIT2: I don’t even care if the game is P2W, that’s not in topic. The thing is that we achieved a whole new level in SA, going from P2W to P2Bankrupt.
Hi. I took the liberty to create a topic to condensate South America’s players opinion about current Shop prices. A lot of people want to buy in-game currency with cash, but those prices are outrageous, to the point of achieving 20%, 30% and sometimes 50% of a monthly salary in our reality.
Cash shop ia a huge part of this game, and we see that we were supposed to buy a small but consistent amount of that every month; that’d generate a lot of income for dev and pub. At the same time, would create an immensely better overall experience for the players who love this game. But as it is, a single costume costs over R$ 200,00 (speaking as a Brazilian player); monthly Crystalline Aura is R$ 55,00; most expensive Royal Crystal pack R$ 550,00 (!!!). It’s simply impossible to keep up with in-game purchases, even for an upper mid class person. People from other regions cannot understand how crazy expensive this is.
Inflation of gold is reaching something like at least 5% a day, with that rate going up, discouraging players from the game to keep up with the market. At the same time, bots are taking over the game and gold sellers are praticing prices up to 75% CHEAPER than Amazon’s! I understood the need to keep exchange rate for Founder’s Pack at launch, but we’re already at a point that’s not needed anymore. More, you need to lower those prices if you want to gerenerate income in our region and prevent players from looking for gold sellers. And believe me: that’s a hella of a common practice in every MMO when the game’s company do abusive prices.
Since day -15 people have been asking for this adjustment, but every single topic on that matter that I visit is completly ignored by moderation team, like that’s not an issue.
Every attention now from AMZ is being directed to EU and NA, like SA don’t exist. That said, I invite every SA feeling injured by those ridiculous prices to leave your support on the idea below. Maybe with we show how much money they are losing they could turn their attention.
