Alright so I have been playing a little bit recently, and found something that absolutely crosses the line. I came out of a game in my Smasher and found, to my surprise, a Nonna avatar in a special deal. Now, I love Nonna as much as the next weeb, but $2 for an avatar that won’t be used that much just crosses the line in my opinion. If you disagree, it’s just your opinion and I respect that, but I feel like $2 for a .jpg or .png is a bit far.

I agree that is a bit much for an avatar. However we are talking about WG here, a company practically famous for their greed.

Bad players blame MM.

Good players blame bad players.

Great players blame themselves.

Greed bc of how they set their pricing? C’mon guys, is BMW crossing the line bc they charge $70k for a new sedan? Is Lucky Jeans crossing the line bc they charge $150+ for a pair of jeans?

They set the price based on what the see as the best way to maximize profit, just like almost every other company out there. If you think it’s too high, don’t buy it. Just like how you can go buy a new Honda Accord for half the amount of a 5-series, you may not get all the bells and whistles but nobody is forcing you to buy anything.

I find loot box schemes where you need to spend $200-400 for 95% probability of getting a tank much worse.

 

The main thing is that WG can't really make you spend any money.

Wouldn’t pay a nickel for an avatar. I’m an avatar virgin still. The only thing dumber than the avatars as they were introduced into  the game was the fact that they were introduced when wg was doing a terrible job with connectivity in NA. I would pay to remove them all from my account. They might get money from me that way. How much would you pay to remove avatars from your account?

What do you mean it won't be used that much?


What if you play every day? 

If it is somebody's favorite avatar, then they can proudly show it every day. 

And, have you considered, that WG had to pay a licensing fees to have the Girlz und Panzer stuff in game?

The last point here sums up pretty much why

The Hotel Terra in Jackson Hole wants $1000 a night for a room.

That crosses the line.

Seriously.  I can't think of anything in-game more profoundly stupid than avatars.  Yet everyone uses them.  It has been weeks since I saw anyone in my matches without an avatar like me.  Virtually everyone uses them.

I can think of something more stupid - intentionally playing to lose. Yet here you are.

Nobody forced you to buy it. It’s not like WG is threatening to delete your account if you don’t buy it.

 to unclutter battle UI as well... i dont need to see colorful things besides me shiny tank and a red outline.

everything else on the battle ground is a clutter, including team mates.

 

Would pay 2$ instead to remove avatars.
