I vote a 1, and here is why.
Aeria Games has such potential in all of their games, truly, I've tried most of the PC ones. However I find that players, such as myself are treated like cattle and is just a money source. I recently got into Scarlet Blade and I am loving the game, the play style, the scifi, I needed a good non swords and sorcery MMO. The in game store and the prices are just ridiculous, you could easily be making as much by lowering AP prices. There is no way that I would ever pay for a $20 lingerie remover, a $40 starter cube or a $220 dollar level 8 ladder. That is just so stupid. If you would look beyond the money, focus on players thoughts and feelings, you just might be a great game company in my eyes. Take a look and League of Legends or Perfect Worlds in game store system for example, for $25 you can get 2-3 brand new champions, and/or skins. This is an absolute certainty, no gambling and spending a ridiculous fortune for cubes that have probably a 10% chance to drop new lingerie for you class. Perfect World sells costumes, you can get an entire 7 piece costume for 1085 zen which works out to $10.85. Once again, you are 100% certain to receive that cosmetic item and you do not have to gamble for it. If you had a better marketing scheme, priced things fairly, and let people buy the cosmetic items as well as other items for a fair and reasonable price, I feel you would be a much better F2P company than what you are now.
Thank you for your time.
