First of all, this post is coming from the perspective of someone who is primarily a paying player.
I buy most of the Store packages, buy Battle-Passes, BP levels and in-game currency.
And while this problem only affects a small niche group of players in the game, it is affecting the group of players that are paying.
This is THE problem that has made me reconsider supporting this game financially the past few years, and it should get addressed if I am to continue to buy store packages and battle-passes in the foreseable future.
Storage Expansions are expensive. I don’t really get why these are not a fixed price, or why storage isn’t “unlimited” in the first place. Selling these seems like a really bad way to get just a little bit more money from someone who wants to have alot of building pieces and happens to do the developers a favor by buying store packages.
Anyway, to the problem:
If you buy a store package and you get the parts used to make up the vehicle you bought and run out of storage space from aquiring those parts. You have to sell the parts you just spent money on, previously bought parts, or pay to upgrade the storage. If you do not, you cannot play the game.
This is a wierd punishment for someone who bought a store package.
I expect to be given the additional storage space required to house those parts to be able to use the newly bought store package.
Spending 59EUR on a Store Package only to be required just after purchasing it to spend several thousand gold coins just to get enough storage upgrades to fit all the parts you purchased is rediculous.
And NO, the gold coins that you paid for in the package is not a substitute for having to buy something else in order to keep playing after purchasing the package.
In my opinion there are two options, one will benefit the entire community, and the other will fix just this problem:
1# Remove Storage Capacity all together, or increase the maximum limit to a few thousand and remove Storage Upgrades all together making it a hard limit.
2# Give the required storage capacity for all parts with any and all purchase of vehicles from Store Packages.
2nd solution is the most likely one to be picked here, if any, it fixes the problem, making increased storage capacity into a “bonus” when buying a package.
I hope this gets looked at.
When you buy a store package, you should be given the amount of parts you receive as ‘expanded’ storage to fit all your newly aquired parts, instead of being forced to spend additional resources upgrading it yourself to allow play after purchase.
