# 1 WTF Sale?
10-28-2011, 12:48 PM
I just logged in and I see this "20% off Halloween Sale" thing in the launcher. I'm thinking, WTF they hiked the prices 30% already, not it's only 20% off?? That means everything is still 10% more expensive than it was origionally. It's like they think no one is going to notice. Yay PW for underestimating the intellegence of your customers.

It's already been pointed out that the prices haven't been increased, so I'll just pass along a little math lesson. A 30% increase followed by 20% off is actually only a net of 4% more expensive, not 10%.

The 20% only covers my usual C-Store gratuity To Improve Performance!

Excuse my math.

BUT...this will be the case when everything tales effect. So I have to wonder IF there will ne sales beyond the hike. Basically, the sales they have (if any) won't *really* lower prices as much as they will bring them to the origional. That being said...I wonder if they think we'll notice.

So then the key point here is that if you want to get something from the C-Store at a discounted price, get it now before the increased prices take effect as soon as Free-to-Play goes live.

Also, as Sleeves said above, I'm sure there will be a Thanksgiving sale and a Christmas sale as well. I'm sure that F2P won't launch before the Thanksgiving sale, so that means you currently have 2 chances to get stuff from the C-Store at discounted prices before they're increased.

The halloween sale is still rather insulting..... most MMO games get some kind of ingame fun event with free rewards... we get a measly sale......

Shows how much cryptic actually respects us.....
