2500 crowns for a mount skin is an insult

The limited time offer on the spotted skin cat mount named "clouded senche-leopard" is on the same mount model as the senche-lioness, and I thought the lioness was priced insanely high with its 1800 crowns.
To release a "limited time" mount costing 2500 crowns is just plain arrogant. To get that amount of crowns you have to pay $25. For a skin. I find that more than a little insulting.

(I am sure this post will be filled with replies along the line of "don't buy it if you don't want it", "stop whining" and numerous variants of these, and I don't care. I just needed to vent my disgust of these in-game costs.)

I will pick up the mount anyway, since I feel this game still is good enough to deserve financial backing once in a while, but honestly: It is called MICRO-transactions, not MACRO-transactions, FFS.

Trolls, take it away ;)

Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, and to voice it.
Personally I have done some estimated calculations of the probable number of game players on the NA PC server, and I worry about the financial long-term stability of the game. That's all I have to say.


Skyrim conquerer. Morrowind and Oblivion vet. Long-time single-player computer gamer W/custom-made hi-perf OCd PC. Mostly RTS and a few action games.
Noob to MMOs.
Crappy satellite Internet very laggy pings 700-1000 not god for gaming, can't play most online games but ESO works good enough.

Sad to say this is how all game companies now a days keep you spending money. For example while I was playing games like Final Fantasy 14 ARR and Phantasy Star Online you had to pay a subscription fee. Here it is optional however if add all that together they are still making money off of you and also depending on your system that too. Xbox is a broken system if you don't have there live account and PSN have very few games to my knowledge that require the Plus membership. They are going to have the financial long term stability because people like to have instant gratification and have a unique gameplay. That is why people like to buy the extra downloadable content even thou they could get it later on in the game. The limited edition stuff big bucks though but i have a feeling that they will come around again.
