    For season 4 up till now, 8% of the current released skins (tier 3 and up) are direct purchase...

    • 82 exclusive skins,
    • 18 limited skins,
    • 9 direct purchase skins

    Last season, this was at 18%.

    • 73 exclusive skins
    • 15 limited skins
    • 20 direct purchase skins

    I've been keeping numbers with each patch. It is certainly getting out of hand, since exclusivity is the norm now and always.

    saying a lot of angry words with no substance won't help. (that is what the rant thread is for)
    Where was I angry? I was dead calm the whole conversation.

    It's not really the chest system. It's how many skins are chest exclusive. Really, the pick 1 out of 3 is a good step in the right direction. Just reduce the chest exclusive skins and it's golden.

    I don't think anyone is mad about the fact there are chests, the problem is literally 9/10 is locked behind chests.
    What's the matter, afraid of the dark?!

    Mind you give me some chips with that ammount of salt you have?
    Mmmmm... So good!

    Hi-Rez gives quite of bit of different ways to get free gems, but as a company they have to make money for else they will go under. With the Pick 3 system in place I don't see that many problems with how they are running things.

    If every chest was a pick 3 that would be great.

    I curse a lot on a regular basis. That doesn't mean I'm mad, I just like to spice up my sentences with them, really.

    its not pay to win, I don't see the problem. You're buying clothes and a hat... sometimes less clothes. There are freebies available for just about all of the characters and they hand you the premium currency on a drip.

    This means, probably, that direct purchases are less profitable. The deep pocket players will only make one purchase and done, where the free players will make their free direct purchase for the 2 months they saved up for it. Overall... its less income.

    BUT placing it in a chest resolves the freebie purchase into a random game of chance, and maybe they end up making a purchase to "hurry it along". The deep pockets want what they want and don't care the cost, and thus, they get extra money from them too.

    Direct purchases weren't working for them or else they would keep doing more of them - but just the same... there is a middle crowd between deep pockets and freebies that also might go for the directs but not the chests, so they can't cut them out entirely.

    The solution is exclusives instead of regular directs. This prevents waiting and saving while encouraging impulse purchases from anyone interested in an attempt to hook the more patient/willing to wait middle ground.

    Overall... if it was P2W then id have a serious problem, i'd just quit actually.

    but its not that and complaining about how they monetize hats to pay for their free game is really really really silly.

    I have noticed this as well. There are just too many Exclusive and Limited skins this year compared to last year. It's getting out of hand, for me at least.

    Last year I bought lots of skins coz it was my first year and I don't want to miss out on skins. This year I decided to just pass on some of them and just buy the ones I really like. Next year I'll be buying less skins, unless they release a whole bunch of skins for Aphrodite and the rest of my favorite gods.

    The rest are just envious b*tches and wannabes.

    Well, that mean HR earn more money this way, if they would delete ALL chests and do only direct purchase then I bet it will be like 1.5k gems per skin to earn enough money. I doubt that ppl would calmly accept this change over current chest system.


    @Ravensaurus

    You are right, everybody can complain but the thing is that HR doesnt change system which work great. I mean if ppl actually wasnt buying all these chests then it wouldnt be in the game.
    Complaining about balance and gameplay however have sense cause HR doesnt lose money for this(except heavily buffing gods for their new skins to sell-out).

    In the last I dont want to defend HR, I just try to explain you guys that Smite has few times lower playerbase than some other MOBA's and yea its partly their fault by making game super casual with like 10 modes.
    This feeling when your team is far behind and you have no prospects for late game but for some reason players still doesnt want to surrender - MOBA Cancer.
