ORZ. Right after I spent around 130$ on Black Friday.. 20$ Pajama sets..
ORZ ORZ ORZ ORZ ORZ ORZ ORZ.
Seriously though.. I DO support ntreev to an extent. But this.. This is just INSANE. I could deal with the 20$ Pajama sets. This just makes me sad. The lobby has gone INSANE, the forums will probably also go insane once everyone wakes up.
Honestly.. I was waiting for these to come to Gacha so I could attempt to get Kaz wings... The ones I missed in the Rainbow Wing gacha.... I don't even think I hit 70$ trying for the wings I had.. I think it took me 60$ of gacha to win Nuri, Kooh AND Arin Rainbow Wings back when that gacha was on.
If these were 20$ a piece I'd probably buy two for the characters I missed. But this is just ORZ.
Loki insists the addition of the Rune Fairy Wings to the shop for ~1 day was the decision of KR, as they apparently hold all control over what happens to all of their games. The price was also KR's decision he says, as they did not want people who spent hundreds of dollars on the other color from the Gacha months back to feel like they got scammed.
But hey, like 5 people begged and spammed in 1:1s saying they would gladly pay $100 for a Gacha or Scratchy item to be put in the shop, guess KR decided to answer them.
Yeah, it's pretty obvious the people in power at US just want to fatten their wallets. If they can spin things around and say "hey, KR told us to do it, we had no choice!" and a few people believe it, then whatever lets them sleep through the night I suppose.
There's a horrible-looking furry MMO called "Furcadia" that looks like it fell off the EGA/CGA wagon years ago and forgot to leave. Anyway, players on that trainwreck happily fork over real money for wings in that game. And they're timed. And if you want to be a dragon, that's only $250.
Resellers and farmers from Gaia are selling some retarded wing decoration that's really rare or some dumb shit for $350-500. That's like $4 dollars per pixel. For a forum avatar.
In both of these examples, they wouldn't have set the price so high if they knew people wouldn't fork over the money. Now, can you really blame Ntreev? I sure as hell can't. This is probably the smartest thing they've done in a long time.
(What the hell is it with wings in all these games anyway?)
