2. Again, what then, would be an unique gift for the loyal customer who bought enough orgine? And these are perfectly normal package add-on gifts. Take example, many app games, either on Facebook or phones, offer unique bonus for cash package.
Loyal customers? I think not.
I stated in my last post, but the target Ankama is reaching through this promotion is not their loyal customers. If that were the case the costumes would be added to subscription purchases, rather than ogrine packages (again refer to my last post) This promotion is in no way rewarding unless purchasing subscription through ogrines is your only option, or if you plan to buy dozens of costumes. If this is not the case, you are spending approximately 33% extra for a costume. Which is much more than the Black Wabbit costume was. At least you could buy that at as it's own, despite how expensive it was.
The only reason the offer is exclusive to certain nations is because the packages are not available in all nations. However, i find it strange as ankama surely would have had benefited from other nations if they were to add it to subscription purchases.
+1 for building unnecessary walls.
My guess is they havent seen enough activity from these high price packages and want to get a little more revenue. I'm not surprised, there isn't much to spend ogrines on anyway. Cosmetics, Sidekicks and respecs is what it really boils down to. The amount you can buy with a single package is extraordinary compared to what is on sale.
These are costumes people asked for. But instead of being replied to politely - we, the people, the voice, were insulted. They could have made it a limited time offer. I dont think many people have much against them as long as they last a week or so, but the boundaries they have made to get the costumes just seem like a display of the power they hold and a reminder that we are nothing more than sponges to be squeezed until they are satisfied with the amount of money we pour out.
Maybe with the money they make they can buy a better marketing team :/
