I'm not against the pack. However I'd rather not spend $100-$200 just for some tourist attraction like items (shirts, cups, etc), and some fancy name tag; that stuff is not worth $200 just like candy at the theaters is not worth $5.
As blue said, those packs are often used to help low budget companies, so it is more like a charity and the stuff is a thank you for your donation to us sort of thing. As everyone has been saying, both SB and LO don't need donations so there is no need to ask for a donation to the cause. This just means that instead of charging us $100 for a $10 plush like ppl who need funding are expected to do, charge us $50 instead so you do get funding, but your not abusing charity by using underhanded methods such as puffing up a persons pride with things like titles or your helping a cause. They don't need founders, so just take my cash and stop trying to over price stuff with charity like things is what I suppose I am trying to say.
That said, many of us would like to support the development of LO even though they may not need it. So having a pack could be a good idea so long as it is done right. They can
1) Give the pack to people who spend $200 (or more) on LO. Or 2) if we buy the $200 pack, give use some really good stuff. What good is a rare in game costume if the IM costume is going to look way more better. Make the pack worth $200 is all I'm saying. Like SB it could have the costumes, mount, forum tag, and some sort of RL memento. But if they threw in some AP that would make the pack more appealing is all, it would really motivate me more to buy it.
I second the idea of a plushy. I just hope they will make one people like if they do decide to do a pack with a plush.
I would already support the game via the cash shop i don't want to have to spend even more money on what would basicly be a glorified limited edition bundle.
It's because of this I say they should add AP to the pack. A fancy outfit that I'm most likely going to replace with a better looking IM as the game progresses in the future doesn't really sell to me and a few other people I know. However many of us are already going to me mallers, so if they take advantage of the fact we plan to buy IM and give us AP in the bundle or just give us the bundle for spending $200+ in 1 year, then more people might be more willing to cough out the cash. Like you said, we already support the game when we toss our cash at them for AP, so why not reward your mallers?
