this you dont have to have all 3 character skins and both weapon sets i’m personally going to buy the animated skin set, drone, and base grenadier because he looks better than the elite to me and if people think they look lame why the hell are they so up in arms about them being for money? if they’re so lame just pretend there’s nothing new this week
Didn’t realise TC forced you to spend so much in life.
Honestly, posts like yours get no sympathy.
Everything you have listed is a luxury in life - can easily live without it all. Some people don’t even have electricity or running water. And here you are throwing a tantrum because you can’t get skins for free that don’t impact the game.
Sure, let’s have a discussion about the underhand tactics of TC or the fact they are overpriced or the fact that maybe their should be a credit a option.
I get that, but like the reduction we got in the 4000 credits packs and the increase in actual credit payouts I do believe we can influence these sort of practices.
Also not aimed at you, but people saying you don’t need them, they do not do anything etc etc, well yes that is true but it is also totally disingenuous, obviously we want to play as certain characters, we are fans even fanatics.
TC are FULLY aware of this of course, that is why you get ltd timed edition packs.
Where does it end ? Does Gears 5 release with say 5 avatars and all else is bought with cash. I mean why would you need more than 5, actually why even more than 1 character? As some are saying, they are purely cosmetic.
I think we’re going to have to agree to disagree on this matter as we’ve been going round in circles repeatedly on this topic in multiple threads.
Yes, your money is your money and how you spend it is up to you.
However as I said it sets a precedence in how companies sell things to us. We’ve already seen a shift in the games industry in the last decade in terms of how they make extra money post-launch - DLC, custom skins etc. This didn’t use to happen. There was a time when it was just the base game at the fixed cost of £40-50 or so. Nowadays the total cost of everything totals much larger sums. I see this as a race to the bottom and it’s normalised how games and content is delivered, and for us as consumers it lowers the bar in terms of our expectations.
Throwing around insults, coming across like TC should give you everything for free just adds to the community looking childish and why would TC take that seriously?
While I agree that posts should try to be as constructive as possible, I also don’t disagree with the notion that fans cannot vent their anger and frustrations at the situation. And TC should pay attention regardless purely because we are the consumer base - if they want to make money then they will need to consider the product they are offering, and the feedback from fans. I’m not suggesting that the customer is always right because they’re not, but the customer can walk away and refuse to buy any more of your products. As a business and on top of making money, you would be wise to keep fans onside.
for all we know there might BE a bundle the skins arent out yet i think the drone should cost more than the others seeing as how he is the most detailed i think they should release a bundle for 30$ for anyone who’s interested
if they dont want to drop the price they need to make a bundle and make it look great in comparison
