Survival pass way overpriced

It’s way too expensive. Here in Aus its $23. Lasts a little over a month. For a few little bits and pieces in an iPhone game. That’s more than a World of Warcraft subscription, and do you know how much content there is for that?

You guys are losing money with this pricing. In my guild virtually everyone has said they might do it for $5 (AU$7), but no way they’re paying this. That’s 12-14 people x $7 = $98 vs $0 you’ll get with current pricing.

That’s before the inherent 2 speed imbalances this will cause, between those that do pay and those that don’t, and the inevitable minor exodus over the next 6-8 months that always follows. 

Look at Supercell. Probably the biggest iOS game company. Their season pass equivalent is AU$7 and lasts for 35 days. They get huge % take up. That’s how you do a season. Small $, everyone in. Not this. This sucks.

    I don't understand how it's the same in pounds and in us dollars.
    To be honest the whole game pricing structure needs a rethink. £10 to reroll a trait. Crazy pricing.

    List examples that would make you get season pass

    And don't say Flaming harpoon like @Superhero

    Whats wrong with a flaming harpoon if they make them look like it and drop it as the main reward?

    Lucky harpoon with incendiary would have been op, maybe with piercing it would have been alright. Not sure how useful that would have been though

    Because the Harpoon Gun is already overpowered and there's only one thing that will make you choose another weapon and that's when you need fire. If you put fire on the Harpoon Gun you literally will never need another weapon ever and then where do you go from there?

    Add Incendiary to the Tactical Decimator? lol
    Seriously though, I'm not the creative type.  I'll give it a shot though:
    - Bayonet Musket that only requires two charge points
    - Dragon's Tongue grants two charge points for a kill (Like Obisdian Ripper)
    - Obsidian Ripper with Dragons Tounge attack area, Silver Tactical, Gold Destructive & Razor
    - Import .57 with Silver Tactical, Gold Cripple, Gold High Powered, Infused Incendiary
    - Winter Flare Gun with Silver Tactical, Gold Lucky, Gold Incendiary, Infused Gold High Powered
    - Morning Star with Concussion instead of Destructive

    The main problem with this weapon is that it’s 18 months old AND it’s been in the GW shop. I think ANY real money weapon that they’ve released in the last 6-9 months would have been better and would likely got my money. If there are players out there that don’t have the winter harpoon already then this season pass is great value, it makes you wonder who this is actually aimed at?
    Agree @Shezza10, and the Winter Harpoon was in the Black Market too, i have already two Winter Harpoons... 🤷‍♂️

    New players I'm guessing. To bring them in with shiny treats and daily tasks to groom them into keep logging in? And a proven top tier weapon?

    $12.99 might not be much in the USA, but $24 is quite a lot here is Australia. Add 10 for a year and we’re talking $240 for a year. That’s 3 copies of Cyberpunk or any other brand new top shelf games. 

    It’s just nowhere near worth that. A few dollars is something you can justify, and you’d get good user uptake, and keep people closer to a level playing field. 

    With current pricing I might, MIGHT, buy one a year for the gold or if there’s a weapon I need. I absolutely will not be buying it every month. And neither will anyone else I know here in Aus.

    The pass is like Pokemon, you have to buy them all. Dr Dozer's orders, sorry those are the rules.

    The problem is not the price, but the lack of unique rewards. I would rather get some unique hero outfits than gold/tools and even a weapon skin (I don't need a 3rd harpoon gun that needs exp to be upgraded and space in the armory).

    There are better things to be upset over. Like Negan being included in the special call over Ezekiel. Zeke is always the bridesmaid.

    Is it to late to give us a platinum “Crimson Harpoon Gun”? 👀

  • hdhdhhdhdh Member Posts: 47
    I probably would've got the season pass if the harpoon had cripple or another trait since incendiary would've been OP. Or even "platinum" lucky or destructive as mentioned above 
  • Stalker20Stalker20 Member Posts: 1,211
    If the crimson harpoon had say silver destructive and gold incendiary - lucky but raised threat, that wouldn't be too op would it?

    Ooooo @Pain Walker from left field with a good idea! (ATLAS assist below) 

    Introduce Platinum gear

    2 gold traits and 1 platinum trait

    ONLY available on Season pass. 

    No need to come up with constantly new or special ideas just for season passes, just platinum-up any top tier gear and you've got a tasty reward at the end. @Lexia

    (keep doing new skins too cuz those are nice) 


    Nice suggestion, I like it :wink:. New gear is about the only thing I'll open my wallet for these days and there's not been one thing worth buying in a long time.

    The fact that it has incendiary and you can root as an extra free attack is what makes it overpowered. Removing silence does nothing to lessen that. It is a wasted trait with SPY/SMY anyway
