6 Days of Player Appreciation - Free Premium & ARMAS sale

Recommended Posts

I love that you're providing everyone with free premium, and the pricing adjustment is very necessary.

 

As a side note though, it's a bit weird announcing an Armas sale right before that pricing overhaul, or even, to literally end that sale by overhauling the general value of the G1C currency. I guess the idea is that there is now a higher discount in total than there will be permanently after the change. It would have been an option to first adjust the currency, and then add a small sale on top of that. It might be a little irritating to some the way you're doing it. 

 

However, it really is appreciated a lot. Thanks!

Who knows, maybe it's because a 10% sale  doesn't look that impressive compared to 30%.

The USD to G1C ratio change is AWESOME!

My main concern remains however. Some items would still end up costing a bunch of dollars, especially when you factor in the account bound price hike

So glad that I haven't spent all my cash on the steam summer sale now.

@MattScott Would it be possible to put up the Fallen Angel pack? It used to be sort of seasonal like the skateboard backpack and radio backpack but G1 decided just to leave the skateboard and radio up on armas for the longest time but the angel pack is the only thing missing. Would love to get that while the sale is going. 🙂

You have overpriced items and then have "SALES", where the prices gets down to the level they should be, and people get the illusion that it's cheap because it's on sale.

 

20% permanently cheaper G1C is something, but guns are still like 30 bucks account perma, EACH. People can get a good steam game for that.

Say you're new and decide you want to get 3 months premium and only 3 account-wide guns:  That's over 100 USD (with the new prices). How many steam games do I get for that? 3-4-5?

 

You need to cut the prices a lot more, increase reputation as much as possible and then remove sales. Then people will buy stuff instantly whenever they want them or there is anything new because there are no sales to wait for and the prices are already fair. If you think you need sales, check if Apple has sales. Check if they make money.

 

 

I was expecting Matt to drop the pricing on the whole store to an acceptable lvl. The only time I or probably many others have bought weapons is during toggs 50% off sales. Which she did frequently. There is no way Im willing to spend that much money on a weapon. Im hoping this is just a quick thing for the community and that final price structure and items will be adjusted later.

Prices are still stupid af ... I will just stick to the free ingame weapons and my RAF weapons
and buy new Fortnite DLC's instead (OMEGALUL btw)

 

Seems like even you @MattScott dont understand lower prices ≠ lower sales/profit.

Not worth.
Still expensive.

I really prefer to spend 30$ on buying a game than buying a fucking CHARACTER WEAPON for 30$.
@MattScott I'm sorry, but this is a bad move.
This is not what I / WE was/were expecting for.

the playerbase isnt big enough for them to lower the prices that much they still need to make money and by selling accountwide weapons for 10-20$ they wont with the amount of players

 

 

yes, i'm well aware, as described in the last paragraph. they made a good and appropriate change for the current situation but i don't think the solution they employ atm is gonna be enough in long term. but i suppose they might be aware of this anyway

 

 

also, another 20% would mean around $28 which is still a quite high pricetag for one singular weapon

By the sounds of this the premium isn't going to be a redeem code is it? @MattScott

I feel redeem codes would be better, because the servers are not too enjoyable to play atm 😞

Any chance we can save these 6 days of premium for when the game is actually playable?

I'm wondering if there will be a look at ARMAS weapons purchase options? Some weapons currently only have the Character Lifetime and Account Lifetime options, like the SBSR. It'd be nice if every weapon had at least a 3-day and 30-day option in addition to the lifetimes.

Haha funny. If I understood correct, these 6 days character bound weapons will cost 12-20$. I dont see a problem here.

I think the problem is not the required amount of spending to get it, but the fact that the 2 slot AMG (such as the Euryale) isn't available outside of loyalty rewards. This could be fixed by making the as of yet unreleased "Stheno" variant available as a regular ARMAS weapon, or perhaps even as a lease from a future contact. I'm pretty sure this was planned at some point, that's why the Stheno exists.

 

Most other loyalty weapons are reskins so they aren't big game changers anyway, just nice to have for people who don't buy reskins or 3 slotted F2P weapons.

 

Agreed, we need the Stheno for sale on ARMAS

Seems to me like a 10% discount all this honestly

 

20% is a part of the benefits of being premium.

 

20% is the perma new G1C pricing.

 

 

That leaves 10% of the 50%, so during the next holidays, if they make any Armas discounts, they'll most likely be more than this.

 

 

Pricing, though its awesome to have a simple 1$ = 100G1C, It's still expensive to see some weapon skins costing 30$.

 

With all that said, I'll still get myself some candy on this discount, to help show LO some love, and keep the rest of the list for future discounts.
