Maybe Capital Games should take a more conservative capitalist stance on the game's economy. If you devalue your currency you're going to retain the spending from the elites, gain spenders in the middle, and generate new spenders from the broke folks.
That devalue would draw me into spending money because I'd feel like I got something out of spending instead of never spending because a character costs way too much and I feel like I got ripped off 3 months later when the bigger badder character comes out.
I'm sure that I'm not the only person who thinks this. I'd love to support you folks because I've enjoyed this game since release, but I cannot justify the California cost when I live somewhere that doesn't even offer cable tv.
Still waiting on that edit forum profile setting so I can change my name...
