Is anybody buying these Zakura packs? I didn’t expect much from them when I saw the release, but thought oh hey, maybe they put a decent deal together since it’s holidays, and Japan release, and Covid, and because they’ve been making a hash of things all year.
But nope. The $9.99 pack holds about $4.99 or maybe $5.99 of value. The $99.99 pack advertises right on the same page that its main ingredients (90 days Omega and 1100 Plex) are worth $79. So basically you’re paying $21 for an accelerator, 250,000 SP, and some skins. Whoo wotta deal!
CCP needs to seriously get with the current decade. They’re not releasing anything special or unique anymore. I’d rather see them sell a bunch of packs and get tens of thousands of people a little interested in EVE this holiday than just shove a couple thousand over-priced packages out the door to the few whales who’ll buy any crap CCP gift-wraps for them.
(PS: Not a complaint or request for a better deal. I wouldn’t buy such a pack from CCP unless it represented a fairly low price on the Omega/Plex combo, something they’re unlikely to do. I just can’t believe how many marketing opportunities they throw away because they refuse to learn from things like Monocle-gate.)
