    Man the original price 50$ that doesn't look promising for the cosmetics , mounts and wings on cash shop , super expensive..
    I thought the same thing. Looks like we gonna get the CN prices on every cosmetic. This gonna produce so much hate for the game. I will stick on for the game play but will not buy the cosmetics if the prices will be high as 30$ per piece of dress.

    Exactly, thankfully the game gear looks great and there are many ways to get cosmetics/mounts/wings in game just need some effort

    Idk who's going to waste a 50$ on this air balloon but as an advice it will be more worth to upgrade to deluxe founder pack and get extra benefits beside a cool flying cat mount than buying this air balloon that even if you see the video the movement of it is weird

  • Can't fault a company for trying to indulge in the spirit of black friday/cyber monday -or Christmas for that matter- and try and push sales, I just think it works better when the game is actually out for people to play xD

    Maybe if some nice pair of wings are offered for a Holiday sale, I might bite <:

  • If these prices are indicative of the way your cash shop is going to be then you would be advised to spend the $90 I gave you for the Deluxe pack wisely, because that is the only money you will receive from me. $50 for a single mount is beyond ridiculous, and I seriously hope you rethink your pricing plan.
  • Hey guys,

    This balloon is in no way representative of the cash shop policy of the game.

    It is a standalone offer of exclusive content aimed to provide rare items to early adopters funding the project. While the standalone price looks high it is not effectively targeted as being sold outside of a founder pack bundle which then bring it only a bit north of 22 usd...

    No one should even considered buying the balloon alone it doesn't make any sense unless you have a pack.

    Thanks to Kyazi for the awesome signature

    20 Euros for pixels just to fly around in a balloon? You must be confusing Black Friday with April 1st, no?

    As a huge advocate of the game, this "Black Friday sale punched me right in the stomach.

    I bought in with the Explorer pack because money is a bit tight right now, and I'd hoped to be able to afford a higher tier pack before Open Beta. For you to be pricing an exclusive item in such an *excluding* way and so expensively really really shocked me.

    Honestly, I was expecting a real fun Black Friday special priced mount as a treat for us all that have been here for you since day 1 and even on the CN server. To see this pricing for me is making me very concerned.

    Kaeden, for you saying that it doesn't make any sense to buy it without a pack underlines my exact feeling, but it is there. It is dangling there as something so ridiculously out of reach for so many supporters, that it hurts.

    I *did* pay for a pack, albeit the cheapest because it is all I could right now.
    And for that to be penalized financially like this is a real slap.

    I hope this is not indicative of policy, going forward.

    While also being biased. GJ not caring about those besides Deluxe Founders people.It should have just been $20 bucks in the get go for all founders. I'm a little disappointed in My.com. for those who want this for the only 2 days you are selling will have to cough up a lot of money regardless. Black Friday sale my ass. Already showing your greed because even $20 is pushing it for a "sale" imo.

    I have a pack but the founders and I'm not spending $32 for this. How many people can this mount hold? Does it Glow?

    EDIT: And what you are saying makes no sense....

    Why put the original price at $50 if it's not a reflection of your cash shop prices. You should have just put the prices you wanted to sell for each founder or whatever. This isn't really a sale then, right? Just a treat for Deluxe Founders people to spend more money. This really took no thought process at all....

    I would expect a reduction in the price of the founder during the black friday, but not a mount for 50€.

    And then in the discord you come across this:

    nice.

    Maybe it's not going 'cray cray' but a genuine concern about pricing policy.

  • pretty ridiculous price for a flying mount.... this should be a cash shop item, not a means of gaining more money from people who have already invested in your game.... want to make more money for development, then try running a holiday sale on founders packs.

    If this is indicative of how the cash shop will be in terms of pricing, i dont think RO will make it long in the US.
  • My.com salesman mindset ?

    it seems that the My.com main objective is to optimize profit, try to gain benefits from every communication done, it is logical since this is a profit company of course

    it is a whole mindset, paying to access a CB is acceptable, trying to optimize their profits even before the open beta is not, the product is not launched yet,

    selling overpriced "cosmetic" item is ok, but it is also a test to check the psychological acceptable price of future item mall and the whole business plan, and also to check how much players are willing to spend, RO CN is P2W, if players here stay silent, don't be surprised when they copy the item mall from china minus the 800 USD items


    A good strategy is done step by step, like a chess game, many people won't see the big picture of this, westerners mindset is different from Chinese people, this is why, AoW, BDO and other games have failed

    the first Black Friday we have an item on sale for 45$ even before the launch of the game, imagine what will happen next if no one talks about it, Casino Online

    if they really care about the players they should decrease the price of the founders pack for 1 day, not create a useless item and sell it in order to create more profit, that is what pissed me, the whole mindset
