I remember when Dirty Bomb didn't have a new limited edition, buy now or forever be separated, obsidian for sale every month. Yeah. That was like eight months ago.
I'm not gonna go on some rant about how Dirty Bomb was better back in the day, so let's just level.
You gotta make money, and now, you are. Great. Happy for you, more power to you, whatev. In fact, I've prior made recommendations on things you could sell like voice packs. I am not opposed to you guys selling @$!#.
But why is it every single new skin has to be a limited edition obsidian that will never be sold again? This isn't about your half-assed Phoenix, this is about the Javelin, the Arty, the Stoker, etc. You're pumping out a new obsidian once a month now, so why you gotta do us dirty like this. Just open a legit market where we can buy skins. Maybe have items rotate or be seasonal. Maybe have sales. You know, like about every other game that has a cash shop. What is up with this high pressure, hard sale bullshit? Why you gotta be so damn scummy? Is it to justify your abusive pricing by creating artificial scarcity to create demand? To con us, your players, by taking advantage of us and our anxieties via artificial expiration dates? What's next? Limit a skin to only the first 250 buyers? You aren't fooling anybody; these are piles of pixels on a computer that you can redistribute at will whenever you damn well please.
Come on Splash Damage. You guys think you're Wells Fargo CEO's or something? If the product is good, we will support you. You know that. When limited edition obsidians came once a year to commemorate the release of a new merc, we could understand. When you're shitting them out every month, yet insisting on these bullshit hard sales tactics, you're just taking a dump on us. Open a store tab for skins. Don't make the skins limited edition. We'll still buy your dumb pixels, and you guys won't be tremendous jackasses.
