To get things out of the way - I’m newish player and I bought starter plat pack on discount some time ago, so I’m omega till march and have enough PLEX left, which means there is really not much I need for now.
So I was waiting for Christmas period waiting for some discounts, maybe get something cheaper, some skills or maybe some additional pack and I see nothing. They have one additional pack in store, which I have no interest in and… that’s it. Come on CCP - throw something, anything on some sale - let me give you money, because right now I don’t really need anything, but I could buy it on a discount. Or is it a time question and the sale will come later? I found no information on this on google to be honest.
But NES Store isn’t even close to the same for someone like me. It has 1 bundle, which is nice 3x omega + skins. And Christmas skins with discounts. Then compare it to starter packs - for example SoF bundle gives me omega (1 month though) + skins + jacket + skill points + booster. It’s not something I need, so I won’t spend 25 bucks, but, if they give it say 20% discount and it’s now 20$, it becomes at least an interesting offer.
Like I said, I’m newish so not much interests me in NES - I don’t know which ships I’ll fly in future, so not interested in skins. I have omega, so, for now, not that either (though this actually has value). They don’t have skill points for omega (outside mct) - something that I could use, especially on level 4-5 skills. Like, I have 1500 PLEX now which I’m holding, because there is nothing in NES outside omega that could interest me, when I run out. Just wanted to share and ask, because surely there are players like me, who would spend their money on something, if that has at least some actual value for them. For now - almost nothing in NES has, Eve store does.
I’m sure there are many new/returning players that would rather buy a pack with some additional cookies on discount and see how the game goes, than spend 20-50$ on plex (omega 1x - omega 3x + skin bundle in NES).
