So, I love the game, and, while there aren't a ton of things, there are a handful of things I would buy from the store... if they didn't seem so absurdly overpriced. The "balance" in this game is all out of whack as far as value to physical currency ratio go. I won't get too far into the fact that the gem casket or whatever it is costs $100... crazy. I can't imagine there has been a single one of those ever sold.
However, back to my point. I would LOVE to purchase some things, but can't justify paying the price of a full AAA title for, say, the deathknight armor I would love to purchase.
Do we think, or are there future plans (don't need a date, as i know that would kill current purchases in the store until that date) that there may be a half off sale, or something of that sort? Or maybe even just a huge restructure of the pricing?
To me, if tings were 50 - 75% of the price they were right now, I would probably drop $75 in a heartbeat just to get some things. However, I can't rationally justify spending such high amounts of money on a single "pack" on a f2p game.
Don't get me wrong, I'm 100% fine playing the game WITHOUT buying anything, for free... but I also would be more tempted to purchase items if they were cheaper. Perhaps a version where you strip out all of the "bonuses" of extra traitstones and keys and offer a reduced cost version of the main item in each pack... ANYTHING that would lower the prices and get me to purchase more.
Look at it this way:
You have an item priced at $50. You sell 1,000 of them in a month, you make $50,000
You have that same item priced at $20, you sell 5,000 of them in a month, you make $100,000
