Stronghold Kingdoms: Crown Prices a Bad Joke

Completely disregarding the buggy client, lackluster tutorial, missing tooltips and pathetic settings or that the game throws errors at you and doesn't even start half of the time - what's up with these prices for Crowns?

http://i.imgur.com/2H8XF.png

60 (instead of 40) for 356?
120 (instead of 80) for 571?
240 (instead of 160) for 1071?
525 (instead of 350) for 2142?
900 (instead of 600) for 3571?
1500 (instead of 1000) for 5714?

Is this... real? Would anybody be stupid enough to spend years of gaming funds for some ingame currency?
I mean, we're used to getting bent over by publishers these days, but THIS is a disgrace without comparison.
For 40/60 crows, I could build one or almost two above-average PCs from scratch. For 356 you get at least 6 full-priced AAA games.

And these are the Beta prices/offers. It really is beyond pathetic to get served such a bug-ridden and incomplete game that throws such extreme offers at you.

With that, I'm gonna uninstall this "Free to Play" game. This is no business model I wish to support in any way.
If this is an error, then it is one of the worst ones in the game, and that says a lot when you consider the full broadside of .net and runtime errors it throws at you.

Nearly six thousand Euros for ingame currency? Sounds legit.

these prices are not mad, they are just premature. Just wait a year, two top and you will be happy you get at least something for 5700

Why was this thread moved here?

I'd recommend lord of ultima over this game. http://www.lordofultima.com/en/

It's by EA and is free-to-play but it also has paying to make it better (don't they all) but it's one of the more generous f2p games. ~$5 a month is all that needs to be paid. The extra items you can buy are found in game.
