Why does this game charge so much money for things? Platinum is, in my opinion, very expensive. When there was the Founders Program, you had the ability to spend $250 on the highest level. Now there is something about prime packs and such and the highest one is around $200. How much money do they expect people to spend? I love this game but I feel like they are trying to get people to spend insane amounts of money on virtual items. Seriously, is something in a video game really worth hundreds of dollars? This is just my opinion and you may take it any way you want.
