Marquee Merchandising Changes [MEGA]

Replies

  • Okay, the extra crystals are nice and all, but it is completely overshadowed by the fact that it blatantly looks like CG is forcing us to buy those extra crystals. What if we don’t want them? It is much better to keep things like that separated in different buying forms. I never buy the marquee packs, so thankfully this won’t affect me. However, I was always tempted to buy one because of how "cheap" they look with the single digit. However, this kills any temptation I had.

    At the very least, you would think Cg would know that ten dollars is 1571 in crystals.

    It says standard marquee pack has no price change.

    So before we burn down the house let's get clarity if that's the $9.99 or the 1299 crystal pack.

    @CG_SBCrumb any clarity on this?
  • I normally buy the $10 packs for all Dark Side characters, I guess that ends with B1. I will not be buying these $20 ones. You've made a grave error with this decision and I hope you reconsider CG!

    This actually starts with Droideka, not B1, so..... you can still buy the B1 pack for $10. I'm not sure why they aren't starting it with the next release though.

    Pack was the 699 crystal one. The previous 30 shard offer was a "bundle".

    I went back and checked the patch notes for the exact language they use. Packs are used to refer to items available for purchase through crystals, whereas bundles refer to the items purchased through cash.
  • I wanted to buy the £10 Embo marquee pack when he was released by my broke **** couldn't afford it.
    I did buy the Jango pack for £10 which although was not a good use of my Maintenance Loan, has helped with the farming of him.
    Hell-to-the-no I ain't buying any £20 packs for the same amount of shards and a few more crystals.
  • You guys are really figuring out new ways for me to stop spending. Doubling the costs of packs 🤦🏻‍♂️. Apparently this game doesn't make enough money selling $300 characters per release plus whatever crystals might cost to gear them immediately. Let's find more ways to squeeze everyone's people pocket books so you can sell us more expensive virtualized characters.

    *creeks back in old-man rocker* /gummy voice, I remember when Dooku was $4.99... Highway robbery, Daggumit!!

    Google “how to run a casino” and pay extra attention to the “handle.”

  • absolutely anti-consumer change here. forcing us to pay twice as much.
    if we want the crystals, we can buy them separately. don't be so blatantly greedy!
  • So force us to buy $10 worth of crystals and the pack...but market it as a better pack. I do not want the crystals. I want the shards. I have even less incentive to buy than I did before. Who is running that place these days??? Stop focusing so hard on stupid money making changes and focus on improving the service/product. People will pay for the goods...not the gimmicks.

    So it’s confirmed that Droideka will be a marquee release.

    It had been confirmed before in GC videos.

    I’ve grown tired of searching other sites for “official” information.

    I didn't realize their own forum was a different website O.o

    specifically, its was revealed via gamechanger youtube videos that had video footage provided by CG, in which it was noted in that footage.
  • What about ship packs @CG_SBCrumb? Will those double too?

    A great question that was not addressed in the post.

    Don't give them anymore ideas

    Also, why announce this ahead of B1? If this change is indeed better for the community, as you say it is, why not do it for B1 too? It seems odd to announce it but have it not apply to the next Marquee.

    As per the original post, they're supposed to announce these changes a couple weeks in advance, so they're announcing the change a couple weeks in advance of the droideka marquee.
  • I cant get on board with these changes.
