people dont want free skins.
21 000 shards is too much plain and simple.
15 000 for a purple skin would be more reasonable
Not every game out there is there to scam you money... it's just a lot are.
It’s to encourage players to drop ten ######### dollars on a skin.
Scam? What actually is a scam to you then? They allow to get cosmetics without opening your wallet by just committing a bit to the game which seems perfectly ok.
21000 shards is nowhere near 700hours... May be like 200 hours.
Also stop complaining, the devs need to make money to continue putting out frequent content...
Seems fine to me, they give you free shards just for playing which you can turn into new characters, skins, teachable perks, or bloodpoints.
Price may seem high, but really those shards are a bonus so anything you get with that should be viewed as a bonus too.
