Prices aren't exactly very lenient either. It costs ~$50 AU to buy the assassin pack. $50? I spend less then that for a 100 day membership card. Hell, that's my rent per week. If they're going to go down the micro-transactions path, at least make them affordable.
Sad part is people are buying them. Someone bought the assassin already
Let's not start this pointless discussion again. If people want to spend their own money on this stuff then who are you to judge?
It offers absolutely no advantage in terms of gameplay so it's not hurting you. I seriously have to question why people take this standpoint.
