ArcheAge adds $250 item pack to its store

    
150
Springtime for ArcheAge.

Sometimes everything comes down to timing. Take ArcheAge‘s latest store pack, for example. In and of itself it’s just a $250 pack, which is hardly new, and the game’s one-year anniversary in North America just came around yesterday. But coming on the heels of lengthy downtime and server merges, more lengthy downtime, rollbacks, and compensation for those rollbacks and the downtime… it’s not the best possible time to ask players to shell out a hearty chunk of money. Let’s just say that.

The pack also includes a version of the house that had previously been given away at PAX, codes for which had been getting quite pricey on the secondary market. Players have also done the math and concluded that the majority of the price is made up of vanity items, which makes the actual value rather personal. So how much do you like your plushies?

Oh Trion… 

Well, people are free to spend their money how they see fit. But ummmmm….

Ehra Is this reason I’m reading?   Is that allowed here? 
j/k
I agree.  I don’t understand why anyone would be angry about this.  The fluff is totally optional and not pay to win.  If people buy it then the dev/publisher wins.  If they don’t sell it, they don’t loose anything other than a little time making the advertisement space and developing the cosmetics. 
Honestly, I would have never known about these prices of these packs if it wasn’t for the sites making news about it.

Ceder Zariarn Greaterdivinity  Blah blah blah!  Same rhetoric, different day with you RIFT hater
tryhards.  I’m willing to bet that you don’t even play the game or
haven’t touched in months.  You probably know very little to the whole
atmosphere of the game. 
I play it nearly everyday.  The still
release plenty of content regularly.  Free content that is.  I’ve never
been cheated or taken advantage of due to the way Trion has operated
it’s game.  What they’re doing is no different than Daybreak, ArenaNet,
NCSoft, Turbine, or others are doing.  The F2P model is very generous
compared to some. 
I can understand that you don’t like it. 
Good. But don’t talk down to others because they enjoy it.  Whenever I
login to the game, I don’t first contact Cedar from massively and get
his opinion on the matter.

ThatLanteshGuy If you like reading about it for free, how about a $150 pack that will enhance you enjoyment of reading about it? ;)

EatCandy my main issue is that 250 would be about 2 years worth of subscription – i highly doubt there is that much value within this pack. And you will still need to spend money

$250 for more snake oil? Those trion kult-aid drinkers should snap that up fast!
