1 Puerto Rico, something requires $250

2 Smalland and Hayek, $320 each  

3 Unique Improvement Module, $220 each

or tons of time in your life

I know no game requires this much of money or time for so little edge/reward,

I will fleece from now

And you need any of those to play why?

If you want to buy any of those, go ahead, but i personally have none of those and play just fine.

I think you're mixing up need and want.

What's a Hayek … 

If it's an IJN hairball like my cat would throw up - I don't want it!

I'm pretty sure the word you are looking for is "want".  Your use of the word "need" is not being used correctly...

It's your money. Your decision.  Personally I only drop money on this game at XMas for premium time and some discounted ships I may be interested in. Try just not buying the overpriced pixelbotes?

OP, if you truly do "need" these things, then I agree, you should stop playing.

I agree. A need is something that you require to sustain your life, like food and sleep.  A video game and its content is a want.  You might have an addiction brother.

Well don't blame WG for your lack of self control, that's a personal issue.

Oh believe me, I don't. Unfortunately this cannot be said of the whales. WG is basically just catering to them, at the detriment of everyone else.

Excuse me but I don't have any of those ships and I am having a hell a lot of FUN.

This is a FREE GAME, you don't need to buy anything  to play this GAME.

I just don't understand your problem ??????

Sorry, yes I do, you are an idiot.

Now go play UNO, but I am sure you will find something wrong with that game also.

That's a personal issue then.

IOW, the game has become too expensive for you.

In travel, first class sort of subsidizes coach.  In other words, if not for those first class snobs paying 5 times as much for their exclusivity and free drinks, coach tickets would have to be much more expensive.

It's not really the same here but you can also not pay anything at all and still play so I figure fleece the whales as much as you can WG.  You're going to anyway and at least I can play for free.

Overpriced content is pandering to the whales only. This is content that cannot be feasibly enjoyed by the majority of the player base due to either price or time.

which is for all except Pay2Rico, the point, they are intended to reward/incentivize long term gameplay,

  1. while at one end of the spectrum, allowing uber whales to express themselves,
  2. on the other end, allowing superunicums to rapidly aquire these items for moderate to little effort .
  3. frustrate and annoy average casuals

That was PR... literally everything else that WG has released has been 100% obtainable for free.  You and a large majority of the playerbase is mistaken by your reasons why you should be entitled for free stuff in a free to play game...
