    started a topic Price Reduction

    Price Reduction

    So this is sort of a cliche subject but let me hear me out.

    its safe to say that every premium player has VIP at least which is 7-8 bucks a month of them lets say 1/4 have spirit covenant which is another 12$ bucks a month. Now I want to say that around 2/3-3/4 of the active server population is premium. That right there is more than enough to run a server and earn profit, ignoring all the other drains.

    As this game has continued it has become bluntly obvious that the devs will continue to implement more and more systems that will continuously dilute the progress you have already made while simultaneously creating more and more ways for them to drain your wallet. Yet the prices of everything remain the same. So this means that premium players will constantly have to increase their average monthly expenditure just to keep up with their desired strength.

    Heres where R2 should give a damn, yes this game is 'pay to win' however, the higher that sum becomes to win the smaller and smaller amount of people there will be willing to pay that amount, and who wants to pay to just not suck at a game there are many other games out there, all of which charging less than you. Matter of fact, games with fixed subscriptions are currently cheaper than the 20$ a mo you're getting just from those premium subscribers.

    The reason I am writing this is because I am a moderate casher and I've looked into the upcomming sylph system. I am telling you that based on your current train of thought I'm sure that not only myself but other premium players will quit if prices continue to rise. And i just want to point out that even on the original chinese version they charge A WHOLE lot less, probably because they realize that there are a ton of sources for people to cash on.

    I should also point out that a core concept of this game is to help players catch up to old players (ex: world prosperity). But no one is gonna wanna catch up if the prices of everything remains the same, hence why many new players quit out right.


    PS dont spam this with messages like "R2 doesnt give F!@*", I realize this but i might as well try something because this is the one thing they CAN do to make this game better.

Not even better stat wings, just a flashy fashion design. Why would they change prices with this many idiots willing to pay them? LOL
    Agreed, but then again, they didnt pay for the wing, they bought something to gain it, there's a difference between having bought the wings when they spent 500 dollars for chests or what not to gain the wing.

    They're not losing that many cashers....... They're losing more free players...... You can argue about cashers quitting but we all know compared to those low cashers, it doesnt make much difference.

    I have always thought this with Wartune. IF they had a lower price points then there would be more spenders and the would make the same or more in the end. The insane cashers would still exist they would just be able to buy more of it.

    I really don't understand there reasoning. I have been using offer sites to get me free Ultimate game cards just to keep me on par with the cashers and it is starting to feel like a second job.

    -

    Actually if more people could spend because prices are lower it would make the insane cashers have to spend even more to beat those people and R2s profits would increase probably 5 times.

The problem is that bb gain is set for chinese servers whit their prices, so if we have altered prices we can not keep the same bb gain there is no balance. r2 and other providers just lack the brain power to connect these dots.

    -you are assuming that their "reduced" prices are the result of their reduced income, false
    -in reality our shop prices have been altered to fit better USD currency and have nothing to do with Chinese prices whatsoever
    -1 socketing rod here is 195 balens which is 1.95$ where in China a socketing rod is 50 balens which is 5 Yuan (~0,8$), so 1/4 the balens but only 1/2 the price

    I can only assume that prices are dictated by ************ and are shared by all the other publishers. You can't have cheaper things at R2 compared to kong or kabam, since everyone will come here then. There must be a shared agreement between all of them to take down prices.

    I have a hard time believing that Miserius, my sever was down for a merge during a sale and not one person that I know was able to participate in it.
