    You said they are willing to flex to make things easier for their playerbase.

    S3 ticket was a one time purchase with accrued rewards.

    S4 ticket was fragmented into 3 with a higher cost for each season pass.

    S5 its the same as S4 but with an end total grind that will be impossible for most to reach without serious wallet shredding.

    How exactly is this Hi-Rez being flexible to make things easier for the base? Objective analysis shows it is them milking the playerbase with little regard.

    So yeah, disagreeing.

    If level 31 is 40k or 50k, that is doable with regular play for 12 months, without opening paying extra $.

    But for 80k FP, that will literally require you to not work or go to school, if you do not want to pay extra $.

    Microtransactions are prevalent in the gaming industry. It generally started in mobile gaming, and is now in nearly every PC/Console game.

    Corporations decide how the games are monetized to achieve maximum possible profit. Upper management says I want X% and the individual game developers have to work to achieve that.

    It is what it is and Hi-Rez is doing the same thing with this 80k FP. But at least, it is purely cosmetic and not pay-to-win, assuming the specific skins do not confer some advantages on gameplay.

    That's about as much as you can hope for.

    And if people find that Hi-Rez is getting too greedy and getting turned off, well, every other game in the market is more or less about maximum monetization and microtransactions.

    I never said anything about the season ticket I was just saying they've shown themselves to be flexible based on their response to feedback on reddit. Like for example, they changed FP at the start of S5 to be time-based, so longer matches = more FP. The FP gains turned out to be crappy, so people immediately complained about it and they reverted it back to the S4 system while tweaking it so that 20+ minute matches gave extra FP.

    I can't think of other examples off the top of my head, but their interaction with reddit in general has given me a better opinion of them. Or maybe it's just stealth being a good community manager, Idk.

    Of course Hirez still does Hirez things and puts their business first. The newest chest is 62 items, up from 55. They do that kind of stuff a lot. I think this is what you were getting at?

    Also since you brought it up, are the new season passes really that bad when you get a skin that's worth the cost?

    And regarding the Thanatos skin, every past season ticket had 4 skin rewards. This ticket has 4 if you include that Thanatos skin, which sucks, but on the flipside you can buy some Exclusive and DP skins with the FP. So I dunno, I feel that it kinda balances out.

    Yeah. That skin is crap anyway. Way too large, crazy colours. Archon is great, this one just suck. Not worth even 600 gems. Grim Reaper is better skin than this BS.

    Watching the Streams on Mixer gives codes for Mixer chest that maximum White gives 500 FP and Blue 1000FP So they're helping us to get rewards faster

    lol I mean they waited (key word waited) till the end of the season to implement a way to get the rewards just by watching the stream. Assuming you live in the "wrong" timezone and you at work while they stream (away from your home computer).... the system essentially seems like its a way to give people who probably wouldn't be buying anything some freebies while people earning their cash don't get the assist making it more likely that they'll buy gems.

    I'm not stating it as a complaint, just to share my "deductive reasoning " for the sake of doing it.
    I'm guessing catching whales beats catching fish
