Pricing Error. One too many Zeros.

Either one too many Zeros or meant to be honor instead of dilithium.

    Except they sell crew at those prices in faction store.

    Nope not superare they are only 1500 dil. So does look like error.

    They just put the cash buy offers up. It's $100 for 2 legendary beholds and 29 super rare - so the dil prices make no sense on the individual buys.

    I'd be nice to know what the drop table is for these @Shan. If they were ET pulls, I could see the dil prices being what they would go with, but if it's regular portal, it's pretty overpriced.

  • I am glad I'm not the only one who was shocked by the pricing of these "special offers"
  • Those packs have been created to go along with the $ offers and to allow you to claim the beholds purchased in those specific $ offers.

    Is the assumption that these pulls only include crew currently in the portal correct?

    Looks like they are trying to make the cash offers look good by the dil. prices for the individual beholds.

    Could it be they just added one too many zeroes?

    Just realized I am just repeating OP.
    We buy portal x10 pack for 650 dil. no guarantee of a behold, but, if we buy 5400 dils. worth?

    Has to be one too many zeroes.

    Oh. So the ridiculously inflated Dilithiums price is to discourage people from doing them without the deal?

    Not criticizing. Understand it perfectly. And why it was done that way, now.

    Keep calm & October 15th!!!!!

    this kind of makes sense. but they need to be engineered a bit better to where you can actually hide the offers so it doesn't show them until you buy the offer, reducing the ridicule from the playerbase. it looks bad, from a PR standpoint

    It‘s still not a great solution imho. Some ppl could buy it by accident. Well...

    EDIT: Or when u claim ur free pulls, and there is some kind of lag or hick up, bang another behold for just 15k. ;)

  • Can you confirm who is available for the gold and purple beholds? Is it the current portal or something else?

    Exactly.
    We know it is not ideal, hopefully we will have a better solution for something like this in the future :)
    Got it Shan

    Hope nobody buys by accident.
    Maybe they both should have been priced at 100000 dil.
    Do not think many people would have bought that by accident .

    Why not just sell them for the same amount but honor points?

    That‘s really a great idea. Just price it 999,999 dilithium and no one can buy it by accident.

    During the the last honour sale the next higher pack of honour was hidden behind the cheaper one leading to it. Perhaps they could have stacked these the same way.

    Not a huge issue for myself. But for what it's worth, I'd buy it for honour.

    Or, at least make it the exact same honor as what is in the honor hall for beholds.

    Better than what they've done here, but it wouldnt be much of an offer at 'list' price.

    Ya, I was thinking a 10% discount in honor, would probably be the way to go.

    The "Offer" is buy the Packs, then use them. They could have made them the exact same Honour price as the Honour hall ones. No confusion, no fuss, no thread we are currently in........

  • Those beholds have the same loot tables as the ones in the Honor Hall.
    So it does not contain limited-time crew.

    yea so setting them to be the same cost as the honor hall would make more sense here. change the currency over to honor, at the 45k honor mark

    Shan, perhaps that is the best option if a similar Offer ever occurs. Just price the SuperRare/LEgendary Beholds in the Portal with the same Honour price as in the Honour Hall.......

    Something like that would have been ideal. Not too big a discount to lesson the main, directly purchasable, offers but still be attractive to some players.

    I feel like it should have been easy to predict a significant negative feedback for putting up a "sale" that excludes people who chose not to pay for the $ale.

    You must be new here. There are sales every week that are only for $. The Christmas sales were all for $. The honor sales for Convergence day was the rare exception that didn't involve $.
