70 dollars.... Really?

Kabam are you being serious? For one t2a and three t4cc of your choice (which I can earn in a month or two) you'll charge me 70 dollars? With that money I'll buy an Odins Vault thank you very much, not some catalysts that I'll use up in a day or two. Max I would pay for this is 15-20$ at a good time, not half of my monthly wage?!?!

    So..... 140 a month isn’t poor... that’s some kid who works 20 hours a month. If you only get 140 a month you shouldn’t be spending ANY money on a game. The deal is overpriced.. no argument. Let’s not start some crusade for “you rich people don’t understand what it’s like to be me” though. He’s barely working.. 20 hours for the month MAYBE. Not an issue of not having a good enough job or not being paid enough. That issue aside.. deal is overpriced, wait for July 4th anyways. 15-20 is too cheap also though. Not gonna get 5 t2a and 15 t4cc for $75-100 😂😂😂.

    To be blunt, that tells me the price is set correctly. When the price of high end catalysts is low enough that people making $140/month think it is a good deal, that's way, way too low.

    The price should not be so low that practically everyone would be crazy to not buy. The price in general should be such that only people willing to practically throw money at the game would consider buying.

    The fairest possible game is one in which everyone pays the same amount and everyone gets the same amount for that payment. But since this is a free to play game, everyone paying the same amount would be paying zero, and the game would not exist. The second fairest option is for the game to give players as little as possible while charging as much as possible, so the people paying more have as little advantage over the people paying less as possible. To do that, most offers (outside of special offers) have relatively little value. The people spending on them are keeping the game alive for the rest of us, while getting relatively little in return. That's exactly, precisely what I want the monetization system of any free to play game I'm playing to do.

    Some offers are targeted at a wide audience: the ones with lower cost mostly. Most are targeted at players willing to spend more for less. This is one of those.

    True true true. Touché. I would still make the point he shouldn’t spend any money on a game if that’s his monthly haul.... regardless of the country and its minimum wage.

    That's a low wage bro, might I suggest night classes, many people qualify for FAFSA(you definitely would) which allows many to go to college for free. Only thing one needs to invest is time, give your local community college a call and see what higher education can do for you.

    It's so presumptuous to assume everyone is an American.

    Worldwide game this site claims average income per country theres alot way down there

    Juat saying (I am American) but 140 a month
    First column is yearly
    Second is monthly

    Then ro ne blunt they should not be spending money on this game period

    It is an unfortunate reality that when most Americans assume that all the people they interact with are also Americans, they aren't wrong often enough to extinguish the assumption. Americans are exceptionally insular in that one regard (and I am a US citizen myself).

    You mean to tell me that not everyone here is American?! Well.... now I feel bad for some people... :D
  • He’s talking about earning t2a in a month, not his paycheck.

    i got the package specifically for the t2a. I had minimum 6 t4ccs in every class, main account was sitting on 3.2 t2as and since I got more gigs this summer i don't have time to do anything other than UC EQs. $70 may seem steep for some, but for me it's offset by freezing the gym membership over summer ($110) and canceling that hulu membership i forgot i signed up for.
    Reminder to all: if you sign up for free first month of anything, be it Hulu, Gym or whatever, always remember to cancel before the times up!
