    Chest Skins

    Please Hi-Rez stop with the chest skins. I have spent probably around $100 on skins so far, and will gladly keep spending more money, but if I was wanting to gamble I'd be in Vegas or the stock market, at least there I have a chance of getting some money back. Up until this point, I've been thrilled to support the game, I typically spend about $10 or so per month I'm active in the game, just to make sure I'm paying my share of development and making sure you can continue making Smite awesome.

    That said, I haven't bought any chests so far, and have absolutely no intention of doing so. A 1% chance of getting a Nuclear Ymir skin isn't worth the ~$5 I'd have to spend to roll those dice, not even close. If you wanted to offer a particular ~$7 skin as a chance to get out of a $3 chest, that wouldn't bother me at all, as long as there's a chance to buy the skin at normal skin prices. This is the sort of thing that makes spending money on Smite feel bad, rather than something I'm happy to do.

    I'm glad seeing I'm not the only who disappoint the skin chests.

    Welcome to the modern day gaming world. I would be your guide Nax. Its just a way for Hi-Rez to make more money. Just like DLC in CoD for example

    I've always felt like HiRez had player interests at heart, this is the first time I've really felt otherwise, and I'm hoping it's a decision we can backtrack. I know that they need to make a profit, and they have every right to offer whatever they want however they want, but I like to think that they still care about the feelings of the players, and making sure we're getting a fair shake too.

    Just don't buy gems for the chest. That's my advise to the case

    Already have been, but it's never a bad thing for HiRez to hear from people who want to give them money but can't/won't due to what's being offered. It's also never bad for other players to see that others feel the same way they do about the chests. Most people I've talked to have said "I don't want to buy them, but I do because everyone else is.", so the only way to change that is for players to know it isn't just them.

    I honestly don't see the problem. Just not buy chest. There money saved and you could buy you some beer instead

    It's like Neverwinter (SHUTUP IT WORKS AS AN EXAMPLE)
    The game is 100% free to play. Literally.
    Only problem is you have to grind your tucus off to get enough Astral Diamonds to trade for ONE Zen.
    Problem is after that, most things cost a couple thousand Zen.
    Meaning: OH HEY, YOU WANT THIS? YOU CAN HAVE IT FOR FREE... AFTER 3 YEARS OF INCESSANT FARMING.
    Honestly, the only thing I want (the DragonBorn race pack) is 2500 Zen.
    Most Zen I've had was 3, after a mixup in the Zen-AD transfer process left me 1500 AD short and 3 Zen rich.

    I can understand the odd special skin getting the special chest rollie treatment. It's what makes special skins so special.

    What I do not understand and accept is when damn near every new skin that comes out is treated this way! It's gone beyond a joke!

    I have heard, along with the new Artemis cave woman skin, that the prize fighting Merc skin will ALSO be a chest roll exclusive! That new Janus skin sure looks nice and I would buy that right away but I get the feeling Hi-Rez doesn't want my hard-earned money and will most likely make that a chest exclusive too!

    I will gladly pay for a skin up front if it appeals to me. What I WILL NOT do is jump through many expensive hoops in order to get a certain skin I happen to like.

    What next? Chest roll Gods!? I swear to God if that day ever happens I will drop this game so hard and so fast and move back to Lol or something!
    My last survey of my performance told me that I lacked enthusiasm.

    Which makes me lack enthusiasm.

    Yep, Ponetron just about sums up my feelings on the subject. If Hi Rez is deliberately fund raising for a particular event or something, go ahead and stick a special skin in a chest, I don't mind fund raising if it's up front. Don't try to convince me to buy a $3,500 dinner by trying to tell me the food is worth it.
