So, from looking at the stream notes, it looks like PG is keeping the discount dragon but is doing away with the discount on the first page of the rider…?
I guess I understand the rationale because this would effectively lower the cost of a mythic even further. That’s the harm they’re worried about; I get that. However, this actually seems like a pretty big mistake to me, because discounting the first page actually isn’t THAT much of a decrease in the price of the total branch; since the first page is the cheap page anyway, and the second page is way more expensive, what’s the overall decrease of the total branch? maybe 10% or 15%? On the other hand, discounting the first page of the rider lets people who aren’t going to be super active and grind the hell out of the game, still get a rider (I hope all the rider shards are still on the first page…)
Let me also, however, give PG credit for what they are doing RIGHT… putting a ton of crafting shards on the second page, instead of useless rider gear, was a great move. Well done on that.
