$7.50 for an outfit!?

Who would seriously pay that much for a skin in a game that honestly doesn't have the potential to last very long?

There are so many tank wars like games coming out now that they seriously cant ask that much for something so small.

Sorry, did I ask for your opinion on whether or not I should buy something?

Well, you were asking on who would buy a skin in this game. Usually when you ask something like that, you are looking for opinions so you can make an informed decision.

Sorry, did we ask you to complain about prices of things that don't affect the gameplay of a game that is otherwise free? Nothing is pointing to this game having a short lifespan.

If you have a problem with skins in games that won't last long, go complain in the COD forums. They release $60 skin packs that only last 1 year.

the team captain, a HAT in TF2 costs 7.50 dollars, an entire uniform in SMNC costs 7.50

the price is fair stop complaining


also this game has potential, unlike 99% of the junk in the F2P section of steam, this game is actually good


oh and one last thing, you can get anything in the store that isnt a boost by drops

we of course have much more than that in our local currency but the amount of dollars that can be assigned to our credit cards to spend on imports is capped at 400

it used to be 2000, but well, bull happens


this applies to all kinds of imports, ebay, Amazon, and of course Steam


and this is why i love Steam, there are always sales and i only pay what the game is worth, no transport costs, also it arrives obviously much earlier by downloading

believe me when i tell you id like to help the guys at uberent, id like to see this game go big because it seriously has potential, and hell its doing good, its now the 3rd most played free game on steam and is within the top 20 most played games, its getting popular and i like to see that

This could possibly be the dumbest complaint I have ever heard for a video game.

Amazing work OP.

To the that complain about buying items in a F2P game:

This is how a F2P game manages to stay afloat. They make money on micro transactions that don't blow up game balance and anger the fan base. And players with money to blow get some eye candy faster than playing for 100 hours.

If you don't like it, don't buy it. If you want something fun, skip a mocha for a day and get it.

Otherwise you can stfu, this is the new business model for alot of games coming out. Take your derp back to Call of Duty.

May I ask what country that is? I've never heard of anything like that before.

On topic, you dont have to buy the outfits. You're getting a game for free. everything that actually affects mechanics can be bought. It's more like a donation than a purchase.

Don't buy it, that's all there is to it. You don't need a skin to play a game.
