    Seriously!? 1,000,000 scrip?

    To start, I have many issues with the latest incarnation of this game. Since most of the problems I have are being addressed in other threads, I decided to start one on the issue of the newest lockbox price.

    Are you guys even aware of how long it takes a casual player to get that much scrip? Let's not even get started on how unfair this price is to the F2P crowd. My suggestion would be to drop a zero off of the end of that number. It will still be high, but not impossible.

    I have yet to see this, but I agree that 1 mil is too high for anything. I still don't have that much scrip.

    On the pts it was 50 keys, 25k arksalvage, and 12.5k scrip and I thought that was reasonable and catered to the f2p crowd and their 50 key limit. This ninja price change is ridiculous.

    I'm a F2Per - Only been playing about a week.
    Pre-patch, I was enjoying the game so much that i bought my first DLC...hoping to buy more.
    Post patch, what with price hikes on lock boxes and reduced drop rates (played for 40 mins earlier and only got one white drop), Defiance has changed - and not for the better.
    Looks like it's back to Firefall for me...until something better comes along.

    That does sound reasonable. Let's remember that THIS is not the only thing they ninga mangled with this patch.

    I guess we can hope that it was a glitch, and will be corrected in a patch soon.

    I'm having issues with drops now, too, and if this is what they plan to keep it like, I will most likely ask nicely for a refund for the season pass I JUST bought, if denied, see about a charge back. Ninja nerfing to this extent with no definitive showing beforehand is nuts. last 2 days I've done nearly nothing but events. Usually when I do these, I have to do a mass breakdown (60+ pieces) about 3-5 times an event. Today and last night? Killed a few thousand enemies, only received about 3 white items. I DID find 1 green item, but that is what the ark fall lays at your feet when you do it's final stage. This goes beyond a simple nerf.

    They tend to overdue it with the patches and then nerf the patch. It could be a tactic to appease the fact that they are increasing costs and stuff. So we complain about the the first patch and then they can nerf it so we complain less about the actual change. Just a thought.

    This is certainly unfair. I would be fine if you were guranteed to get purples and ojs and an outfit. But the fact that you waste 1 mil on the 'chance'. Thats bs. The lockbox is turning into a casino.

    If their mess up benefits them it will be a few days before it's fixed.

    If their mess up benefits us it will be patched in less than 6 hours.

    I know many of the minds behind this game do in fact care about it but it's hard to do anything under a dictatorship.
