Idk who's going to waste a 50$ on this air balloon but it's a pretty ridiculous price for a flying mount.... this should be a cash shop item, not a means of gaining more money from people who have already invested in your game.... want to make more money for development, then try running a holiday sale on founders packs. 

If this is indicative of how the cash shop will be in terms of pricing, I don't think RO will make it long in the west.

    It's a scam to try to sell more founder packs. If you have the 90$ founder pack then the mount is "only" 20$ which to me sounds like full retail price for a mount in a F2P MMO. I'm starting to get the feeling that is going to be yet another cash grab from a 3rd party publisher of an eastern game. I had been cautiously optimistic about this game, but after seeing that first beta, the hype train was pretty much derailed. I won't be buying a founder pack for this one. I'll still check it out at release, but I'm not putting any money into it until I see how this plays out. I'm really tired of doing charge backs because these shit publishers keep running these scams.

    when will peoples get it they will stop do it : most f2p goal in step :-1:

    1- hype
    2- sell founder pack and say you will be not p2win
    3- open games with no cash shop and say you will be not p2win
    4- open a cash shop fairly fair ( or how they can get away with )
    5- gradualy increse the p2win item and features of the cash shop with the ratio of the peoples who still play
    6- go all out and go p2win, normal peoples leave and whine about it ( blablabla why why never again )
    7- whale or peoples who have investest to much alreadly play the games
    8- when not enough players close the games.

    and they do it again, peoples cry again, and they do it again

    when will peoples learn ??? that the big questions.

    that only then the mmorpg cycles will change a bit, f2p are the cancer of mmorpg.

    Well, up until phase 4.5 in your schedule you can actually enjoy the game, so I fail to see why not.

    I raise your $50 balloon with an air ship city home from shroud of the avatar for $700 and a star fleet from star citizen for $18750.

    my.com should focus on adding quality items in their store before they fully translate their game.

    No fair comparing an actual game to a marketting scheme!

    It looks a little janky in the video, but i kinda like it.

    i are exschplorer

    What i don't like is the price. $50 for an assortment of pixels is a little much.
