    Yes, it's gambling, but if they are starting to put such low cost items in these 200+ gems cost chest, I and I assume other people won't purchase them.
    All of the icons in the chest tho are either Exclusive/Promotional or worth 200+ gems.

    The odyssey is direct purchases, not chests.

    That's a good point.

    Come to think of it, where did he get the value of 50 gems from?
    With a top hat!

    That feel when you look at the chest and you haven't even bought the Kuku skin yet...

    Probably because the Odin Symbol (which IS the Norse pantheon symbol) emblem is 50 gems.

    Except this isn't gambling. This is buying a random item. Randomness does not equal gambling.
    The point of chests is not to win or lose, but to buy items until you get what you want.
    What made this system acceptable was the fact that even if you don't get the desired item, you will still get something comparable.

    Your only argument seems to be that this is fine because some other games have a similar, also unfair feature. That's no argument at all.

    Of course there can be items of equal or greater value. Hirez makes money from chests because people purchase several until they get something they are happy with.
    They don't need to add in items of lesser value to punish a customer for taking a chance. And if they do get greedy some consumers will not accept that.

    But it could be. The system was already working, wasn't it?

    The thing is, there is nothing worth less than 200 gems in that chest.

    It was an estimated price compared to other low effort avatar icons that are purchaseable. Just slapping an "exlusive" label on a zero effort item does not increase its value.

    Yes there are. The avatar icons are not worth 200 gems. They simply have no pricetag because they are "exclusive".

    The avatar icons are worth 200 gems, whether you like it or not. They are found originally in a 200 gem chest, so they cost 200 gems.

    In fact the Moving Lizard Eye is 400.
