    I don't know anyone who spent $300 to get their mount. I got mine for $24. No one I know spent more than $50.

    You clearly have a problem with how people spend their money.

    Some have spent over thousands on the crates and still never got one, Swtor CM rng

    It is theoretically possible to not get it in that amount even if it had a 90% drop rate. That's the problem with rng, you are never guaranteed to get a particular result. The odds are astronomically low but there is still a chance.

    Sorry that you haven't worked hard enough in your life to be able to afford things you want, OP. But really I only bought 15 each season. Got a mount both times.

    Advice: Be less salty.

    You're no better, telling a stranger that they have never worked hard enough to gamble money on a video game. Re-evaluation is important, wouldn't you agree? As to the original poster, yes some people do that and it is hilarious. No one should pay any attention to people who think they are higher than others due to material things, at the same time it is just a mount dude. The only people standing around flossy and all that in my eyes would be VMoL completionist, Flawless Conquerers and Emporers. Lowkey Master Anglers as well...I envy them.

    As for the thread topic. How does this impact your gameplay and enjoyment exactly? Not being smart or snide I really want to know what part of it detracts from your enjoyment.

    Bye, if this bothers you then real life is going to be a kick in the a$$. I would ask for your stuff but it's probably not as fantastic as my crown crate stuff.

    Literally not possible. You would have enough gems to buy all the mounts at least twice over by the time you got to that amount of money spent.

    That's pretty meaningless without also listing the value of what they did get for their thousands. Crates don't work like lottery tickets where you either win or lose. With crates you get at least a guaranteed reasonable value in drops and then you have the chance of something extra. What constitutes a reasonable value in drops? Let's just concede that what's crap for you may be well worthwhile to someone else.

    Plus, of course, it's up to people how they spend their own money and it's not for us to judge them for that. Even if they find a drain and decide they want to throw their cash down it, are we in any position to judge them for that - let alone to condemn the contractors who put the drain there?

    No mount is $300

    Players do have RL things or just plain talking to someone in game where their character stands still for a bit. Normal for any game.

    But heck, if this is to much for you and you need longer want to log in that's your choice. We respect it but ask that you respect that we do not need an update on the status.

    Thx.

    I don't really care for the crates but that's a separate issue. I've not seen this game ruining standing around on mounts you speak of. In my world at least, people are busy crafting, farming, running dungeons and trials, leveling, role-playing, buying/selling on traders, pvping and decorating their houses.

    Haters gonna hate. It's none of your business what I spend my money on. And btw I ended up with cheaper items from the crown crates than if I bought everything out right.

    So in my eyes the crates are actually a better deal.

    If you dropped a grand on crates, you should have enough gems to buy at least 1 of the mounts.

    Well yeah in that way I just meant in the random loot boxes itself

    Yeah, they should have just made those mounts 80k crowns per one and then we could have all complained about the real whales who drive what happens in the CS. Seriously, what did people expect when they were busy telling others they didn't need to buy 4k crown mounts, 5k motifs, no one was forcing anyone to buy anything etc? We were spoken down to, told to get our pauper asses out off the chair and get a job. Did people really deluded themselves into thinking that by defending one cash grab it wouldn't encourage another?

    I spent $8. The Wild Hunt Camel was in my second crate. I only bought 4 and got that and the moth priest robes. All I wanted for $16, not $300.

    I think the OP offended RNGesus and is salty now.

    They are? I don't even notice, I have too many other things I'd rather do when I'm in game than pay attention to them.

    I've never bought a crown crates.

    I still see no point to what the OP said other than his general overall bitterness.

    Clearly he's bitter. He "loathes humanity." Whatever.

    Well the elk was 4k crowns. I spent 4500 crowns to get a wild hunt mount and got the WH Camel, a panther, a guar, a few pets and some costumes too. So I guess if you look at it like that, it was a better deal than the elk mount.

    I still don't like it though. I'd rather just buy what I want. There's too much junk and duplicates in crown crates. Plus you don't get the full value of gems from the duplicates. You get something like a third of the value.
