Is Riot Games quietly ‘pickpocketing’ gamers by quietly increasing the price of skins in Valorant?
One of the points that makes Valorant stand out from other FPS games is the extremely massive gun skin system with eye-catching design and effects. However, the selling price of these skins is actually not cheap if not quite ‘expensive’. On average, players have to spend approximately 320 thousand VND (or more) for a skin with effects.
However, the community is gradually realizing that Riot Games is showing signs of quietly increasing the price of gun skins through the pricing of recent collections. In particular, a post on Reddit analyzes why this ‘conspiracy theory’ is actually extremely reasonable, causing many people to ponder.
Riot is silently rising the price of skins. from VALORANT
According to the guy whose user name is “Juansa7X” on the reddit forum, he shared the following: “For example, for 2 bundles Crimson Dragon and Soulstrife, both have the same price but cannot compare to Reaver 2.0. Riot does this so that users get used to the skins being inflated, and when they release a bundle that costs 2175 VP, this gives the impression that gamers have finally received a ‘quality’ bundle, from which spend more.”
Indeed, if it weren’t for the guns in the previous Reaver or Ion bundles costing 1775 VP, in this Act 5, bundles at this milestone would often be ‘shoddy’ and not worth the money. Meanwhile, the collections at 2175VP are also not overrated. Chronovoid is a good example when this Bundle also encountered many disparages from gamers.
If this player’s analysis is correct, perhaps the Valorant community will have to wait a long time (or never will) to see a bundle with a 1775VP skin that is really worth as much as the Reavers. , Ion, or Prime too.
