i will go on a whim and say that it was an hyperbole kewlin.
And he is right, the items listed on APB Armas are not worth their price tag. Not speaking of 1$ for each thing, but it is truly awfully expensive and at times inconsistent.
To make it worse, they even practice gambling on this mmo, with kids from small to "big" speading over 100$ on "legendary" garbage.
Despite my listed location, it was not hyperbole. Maybe it was an exaggeration, but not hyperbole. I 100% believe what I said: APB would drop dead almost as fast as if it had no profits if they dropped their prices.
And who's to say what an item's worth? All the items on ARMAS are worth what they're priced at to me, at least approximately or on average. I don't regret a single cent I spend on APB, and I plan on spending tons more money on it. Worth is a mental and social construct, and if enough people are willing to spend a certain amount of money (essentially their time multiplied by how much their employer values them) on an imaginary item, then guess what? It's worth that much.
Things are only worth what someone can get away with selling it for. . .
having spent 5 figures on apb i'd say prices are a little too high
- account bound guns should be 20-30
- account bound cars should be 20-30
- kits should be 10-15
- account bound clothing packs should be 10-30
- account bound individual clothing should be 1-3
- account bound packs should be 50-60
- KTTW/KTTC should be 80-90
guns priced like the shredder shouldnt exist, every individual piece of clothing should be available to purchase, and everything should have at least character/account options
i'd like to see kits broken down and sold piece by piece as well but i dunno
. . . and seeming as this guy was willing to spend over ten grand on APB, alongside many other people who've spent several grand each on APB, I'd say we've got some pretty good evidence that the items on ARMAS are worth what their sold for, at the very least on average.
As an aside, how can you say you've spent five figures on something and then act like a business should lower their pricing. . . like. . . really? You gave them that much money and then are acting like their prices should be lower? That's like giving a dog a whole chocolate cake and then gently whispering in its ear that its a bad boy.
*EDIT* To put five figures into perspective of what it buys you in APB, for ~$4,450, if I counted correctly, you can buy every single gun in APB account bound, and I don't mean like one ATAC, one HVR, one ALIG, I mean every variant of every gun. I don't get it, I really am honestly dumbfounded, HOW CAN YOU EVEN MANAGE TO SPEND FIVE FIGURES ON APB, AND ON TOP OF THAT YOU NOT ONLY SPENT MORE ON APB THAN I CAN EVEN FATHOM, BUT NOW YOU'RE SAYING RP SHOULD LOWER THEIR PRICES?!
You've done it, by going out of your way to spend more on APB than I swear is even possible you've justified anything RP can possibly put on ARMAS. I understand that a large percentage of that spending had to be on JMBs, to which all I have to say is, honestly, no joke and no insult intended, with all of that money you could have hired a top-notch psychiatrist to help you with your problems, and you would have had money to spare.
And before someone blames it on G1, it's not their fault, it really isn't, it's yours.
