    I haven't been here long, fairly new, but I am already sick and tired of seeing players with legitimate issues or valid criticisms, and seeing you have responded, but that response is only to tell people to be nice to each other or that you have removed a few posts.

    FOR THE LOVE OF GOD TALK TO YOUR COMMUNITY!! They want to help you make this a better game, and all you can do is watch the forums and delete posts.
    You're right, but it couldn't be more obvious from a nearly year old post with 35 pages that they only care about money, not where it comes from, and making reasonable choices to make more of it.

    Pure
    Greed.

    Would GLADLY pay the price they’re asking if it was account wide. As it is— NOPE. No way. I will never.

    It's still too much.

    I'd say make it available for 750 Crowns, which is the lowest amount you can buy, and make them account wide and there you go, I'm pretty sure most would be happier with that, myself included.

    Wow

    A fine example of bad communication

    1 year and no change on the price or store wording, no communication either

    You’re consistent

    Those little things are killing ZOS image slowly but surely

    I know I've said it in this thread more than once, but I'll say it again: if anything ends up driving me away from this game, it will absolutely be this sort of thing. Poor communication + seedy business practices = a bad time, even if the rest of the game is good. And, honestly, the seedy business practices thing has definitely undermined the quality of the game itself on more than one occasion.

    This is an obvious example - holding a brilliant customization system hostage behind an appallingly greedy price tag is just a real shame - but it goes beyond the cosmetics at this point, I think. Why fix something like Hel Ra, which has been badly bugged to the point of almost being broken for almost a year now, when they can make more money off of the 10,000th re-skin of a mount or pet? Why do balance and quality of life passes when they could just release another poorly tested DLC or Chapter and get immediate profit then and there?

    This game often feels like it never fully made the transition from the "we're slowly dying, so let's milk this property for all it's worth before the end" mindset to "we're one of the most popular MMORPGs on the market, so let's apply some serious polish and strengthen the foundations so we can keep making money off of it for years to come" mindset. I think they're finally starting to see that this short-term profit focus is a bit of a dead end, but it took how many botched events and disastrous patches before they got there?

    Pretty much this

    Sums it all pretty nicely

    They actually seem to read this, because the outfit slot is now as I hoped it would be, 750 Crowns, but it doesn't say if it's account wide or just per character. If it becomes permanently discounted for 750 Crowns and account bound, I'll buy for sure, and not just one.

    It's on sale 50% off (about as often as it's full price) but it's still the same old single-character slot.

    That's the thing...the prices have been adjusted. The outfit slots go on sale constantly for 50% off. Pretty sure they were on sale for at least a week on 2 separate occasions just in December alone. At this point, I feel like they know they made a mistake but can't (or won't) admit to it and figure out how to deal with the fallout of existing purchasers if they permanently lowered the price.

    I too was completely turned off by the discovery that it was only for one character. There is no way it's worth that price. Even when it goes on sale I'm not sure I feel like it's worth it. I've sort of considered it a couple times because changing outfits is also a bit more costly than I can justify with in game gold (I don't find it a breeze to make like some people do *shrug*), but... have yet to need another slot thaaaat badly. If it was one slot for every character on your account I would totally do it, maybe even multiple times. But for only one character?? Er... NO.

    I know there are plenty of people for whom that's not expensive, but I have to agree I think they'd sell a lot more of them if they either changed the price or made them account-wide.

    I think sales would have skyrocketed if they did by account

    Now the hype is down... but still sales would explodes (well not as much as if they did it at the right time)

    I mean, I personally would buy three of them. Immediately. At the full price of 1,500 Crowns. No hesitation whatsoever. So, yeah, they'd get money from me at the very least.

    Mika S, hi.
    I want to ask, why Zenimax team didn't reacted still on any constructive posts in this thread?
    About unfixed scam which is in selling Outfit slot upgrade without any information inside the game that it applyes only to 1 character.
    Can u push this question there...I and many others ask not about price, we ask to fix the information in crown store.
    It should provide this information (that it's for 1 character only) when u try to buy this item there.

    I agree with the sentiments of these posts. The outfit slot description seems intentionally vague so ZOS can make more cash. The price to unlock just one single character outfit slot is unreasonable when compared to other systems and goods. These should be account wide.

    And I keep hearing about it, too. One of my guildies recently was surprised when she bought one and realized it only applied to her current character. It really isn't just a bunch of forum users blowing it out of proportion; this is a real problem.

    Not for ZOS... Each time someone buys this, a Marketer gets a bonus. :smiley:

    This thread started one year ago February 12, and it is completely sad that it is still like this. Worse that ZOS seems perfectly fine with the item description not clearly identifying what is being purchased.

    For the sake of comparison, I'd like to mention Champions Online. This is a Superhero MMO, so costume is MUCH more important, as how your character looks in a superhero game is a major part of the character's identity, it makes them recognizable by other players, and often the genre, limited as it is in number of games, offers a very creative character design utility that allows for way more flexible character customisation than any other MMO.

    In Champions Online, costume slots also are per character. But they cost, outside of any sale, 150 Zen (the local equivalent of Crowns, with roughly the same value in real life money). For TWO SLOTS.

    ESO sells 1 slot for 1500 crowns. Making Champions Online effectively 20 times cheaper for the same upgrade, in a game where said upgrade is comparatively much more meaningful.

    What say you, ZOS ? Nothing, as usual ?

    I'm not sure what to make of the fact that while marketing placates the min-maxers with free name/race change tokens - that a whole bunch of us do not want and will not use because we aren't min-maxers - marketing can't figure out that this issue is deserving of the same level of attention.
