    Default MEMBER PACK LESS VALUE

    Do you think that since we got 'LIFETIME' membership that the Member Packs have had less in them?
    Since we used to pay $4.99 which = Ride/Pet/Outfit etc. we got more than the coins and blocks and housing items that are really just items found as 'scenery' in game? (ex: bridges, trees)

    The teleporter did cost SC BUT is only useful with most of the other member pack things IF you build....
    FR wants us to buy 'additional' items to add to these 'gifts' ~ I get that!
    Most of the players on my list I visit houses and lots that are empty or have a few items placed
    Lots of time and SC to fill them....so MOST do NOT...
    what is your opinion?

    I agree. I find the member packs to be of little value to me.
    Most of the items we get are things that I would never buy for myself to begin with.

    As you point out; I also have noticed that SOE tends to put items in the packs that require further purchases to be of genuine value. I do not care for it, but I think it's smart marketing on their part. If they put top sellers in the member packs, people that had already purchaed them would be upset and would hesitate to make other purchases. The only people that would be happy would be those that seldom purchase SC items to begin with. I guess this is one of those instances where there is no way to please everyone without SOE taking a hit in the wallet.
    The way I look at it, free is free. The member packs may be less than what I desire, but at least I'm not out any coin or SC. SOE is under no obligation to continue member packs, so I'll take whatever is in them and make the best of it.

    Another thing I have noticed is that newly released items have a tendancy to become sale items in the near future. My unsolicited advice to my fellow players is to wait at least a month before buying a new item. It will probably go on sale before then.
    When SOE first came out with vacant lots, people rushed out to buy them, just to see them go on sale a week later. A month after that, SOE started coming out with new lots altogether. Now some of my friends are upset that they bought one of the first lots at full price, when what they really wanted was a Seaside lot to begin with.

    I think they should do this instead. you get 3 options:

    1. Their member pack
    2. 50,000 Coins instead of what they gave you.
    3. a chance to get a better VR in TCG.

    Those should be the members packs. its better for everybody.

    I think they are fine
    we used to get pet pals... i mean the beginning was very nice
    the middle was very bad
    but their getting better even though the theme is housing
    Before: Clothing
    Middle: Coins and Pets
    After: Housing and coins
    These teleporters are great!

    Agreed. If you don't really care about what your house looks like *cough*myself*cough* then why bother?
