The idea of something being a Rip off is subjective. Plus ripping someone off Implies that one person is being duped out of something. It says clearly in the description, this is the cost for the possibility of pulling these items. You are guaranteed one character and 2 weapon skins from that set (esports) or at least one epic level card in feature packs. You arent being tricked or swindled. You are being offered the possibility of these items and this is the cost to take a shot or you can pay this amount to get exactly what you want. That’s not a RIP off its basic economics. They have a product that you either want or dont want at the price they are willing to sell it to you. A Rip off would be saying you’ll get this exactly and then not giving it to you.
Now on the other hand you can look at it as just the expression of “being a RIP off” as in the price is higher than you think the product is worth. That’s where the subjective part comes in. You can see it as a not worth the price and you vote with your dollars. If noone buys these at that specific price then adjustments will be made but clearly there are lot of people who fall in the category of liking the price to being ok with it.
When the UIR packs released at 4400 credits and $10 a pop enough people were unhappy with that price point that TC quickly made changes and have continued to tweak things since then to get to what for me is a pretty fair system. You may not agree and that doesnt make you wrong it just means we see it differently.
