Exclusive boimler for $50 usd

Or 200 to fully fuse. I think this might be the most offensive offer ive ever seen.

And it stays in the store until added to portal? Let me know how the people that bite for this exclusive crew react to it being made “non” exclusive down the road.

    That HAS to be a typo...really stretching here to give the benefit of the doubt, but that must be a typo... :/

    You got to be kidding me. I go after all the new crew, but $50 for 1 copy, I will not bite on this greedy, cash grab. It amazes me how much WRG finds new ways to alienate its customer base.

    yeah, I was excited when I saw the message of an exclusive crew, expecting 9.99$ for 1 copy. saw 49.99 and I laughed and said never.

    I'll Retrieve him next year or get him from the Portal then. I would like to say that a 5* Boimler no one wants is hilariously ironic though.

    That is what a single copy of the Legendary for an Event costs. However, the Event Legendary also has Event Packs and other stuff.

    I'll wait.

    Observation: It IS interesting that this happened to drop days after people said he needs a Legendary version. However, obviously there would have been time involved in all the approvals, as we know very well. So, has to be unrelated. Just funny it happened that way!

  • I know that wrg is not immune to inflation and the cost of business going up. I know they need more money to keep going at the rate they have been going. And i know that they need to show improving revenue to continue to exist.

    But i really, really think they need to invest in someone who has a better background in both marketing and a solid understanding of how players play, and value, this game.

    I've seen worse. While I was tempted for an android second, I think the $50 will scare people. But I know people will spend 6500 Dil for a chance at a crew and that seems worse. While I don't do 6500 pulls, I have spent $200 chasing a Sisko before. So it's probably an alright deal overall, it just would have made more sense if it was a high demand crew that people have been looking for forever.
  • DScottHewittDScottHewitt ✭✭✭✭✭
    It amazes me that $200 deal is even a thing. Did they forget Legendary Cites exist or are we supposed to?

  • I think if it was actually going to stay exclusive it might be an ok deal, but i cant imagine anyone dropping 50 bucks on it and being “meh” about it being added to the portal, whenever wrg decides that its time to do so.
  • ChaosChildChaosChild ✭✭✭✭✭
    He's definitely a good crew. Is he good enough to be worth $50? Absolutely not. Would any crew be worth $50? Nope.
  • robownagerobownage ✭✭✭✭✭
    I'm sure someone has already bought him, if only to be first to max. But this is not a direction I appreciate for this game.
  • The price is way off. Should have been $300 at least.

    You know, since it is intended as an exclusive crew it should have probably have been $2,999.99 for the single, and a cool $20,000 for the 5 copies. At least at that price point it is more realistic that only one captain would have taken the chance for first to immortalize, making it a truly exclusive crew.

    Easy pass for me at $50 for a single copy. But hey, there are those willing to spend that much for it.

    Not defending it, just giving a different perspective.

    I spend between $30 and upwards of $400 every single Tuesday, to get the new shiny card and immortalize it. Traveling Man said it well, once you get all the crew immortalized, it is expensive to keep the train going.

    Today I spent $50, plus $25 for DYC - and since I like to dupe, I got 2 copies of a top 10 voyager for $75 plus 7 cites. That's waaaaaaay cheaper than the last few Tuesday crew I've gotten and duped.

    So I'm happy about 'getting out cheap' for this Tuesday, but I'm not happy about the new experiment to paywall a crew, bundled with an OE to paywall the final tier, etc etc.

    Even I have my limits and I think we have begun to find that I too should re-evaluate how much I want to spend on this game going forward, if this is indeed the signs of things to come.

    And that does put it in a good perspective. For those that do buy the new 5* on Tuesday's this isn't that bad of a deal. For those looking to buy a 5* it does seem a bit high. I guess it shows its all perspective. For me, I only tend to change the 4* crew on Tuesday's (and a rare 5* here or there) so I can see the logic in being able to do the 50$ spend, but yeah, I only chase if I have the Dil on hand as it doesn't feel like I'm spending real money then.
