2) This one might just be in my head, or an assumption, but I believe its a valid one. I believe that our GMs are not relaying our suggestions and feedbacks to the JP staff on our most ongoing fight for better purchasing options and CPC. Now I know they did for the Exclusion EX half box, and the recent EX pack thingy, BUT that just reinforces this point even more. It means that the JP staff IS willing to hear us out, IS understanding our situation AS LONG AS THEY WERE INFORMED OF IT. Both times, they reacted quick and fairly.
Thank you for translating into normal english what I have been trying to say for some time
As long as this continues, no change will ever occur.
With all of the data collection, the one (and the most important) piece of data they require is, "How many players/clients are we losing because of our costs?" Along with such qustions as "Would our player base actually be big by now if we didn't make everybody feel they got little to nothing for their purchases?"

I can get this skin for her for $X and then I will be able to use that skin when I play in the game as her. Then they had a sale on a few other champs, so I spent a few bucks and bought them! I felt so happy! I got what I wanted and paying money allowed me to get what I want and allowed me to compete in the game! I felt so happy.
There is no satisfaction on earth like getting exactly what you paid for!!
I went onto to steam a few months ago and saw a special deal for THQ games. I wont list them all as the pack was quite expansive. The pack had mostly older games in (a few months old or older) and cost $50 - save 87%. Now, I never expect to save 87% on anything so that was awesome in my eyes. The older games were still playable and very entertaining, I am still exploring the pack and enjoying it immensely.
When Ateil has a sale, it is still most often combined with random purchases, not defined purchases. The discounts are normally very low to almost imperceivable. Why does set 1 still cost the same as set 9 when it is 3 years old? Why are we not getting special offers on older sets when they have already had their main sales? Why can't I spend $50 here and feel good about it? Why can't we buy a set?
Why does Alteil feel it needs to bleed every individual consumer dry and give little in return, when they have limitless stock of their digital cards and no further production costs? Why do the Alteil people believe that their game is worth over $2000 (for the whole game) when there is a whole world out there telling them different? Will they ever realise that if they look after their players, the overall value of their sales will in fact increase?
And my final questions..
How long to they expect to be able to continue this practise with any success?
Why don't they want to make REAL money by actualy making people WANT TO SPEND MONEY HERE?
