Why $15 Monthly May NOT be enough

This video is a detailed answer to threads like

https://www.reddit.com/r/AshesofCreation/comments/o8ub6q/why_is_15_month_not_enough/

In that thread I gave a breakdown of the money from the $90,000,000 annually that Ok-Brilliant-2050 stipulated that Intrepid Studios would make. They are under the assumption that $7,5000,000 monthly means that Steven can pay himself back in less than 6 months.

It is ok to have that opinion, until you have experience with business, and you want to take a genuine look at where the money is going to go.

So, as a follow up to my answer in that thread, I put together this video. Hope it clears up any confusion about why $15 Monthly may NOT be enough and why Intrepid has chosen to use a Cosmetic Cash Shop option.

    The only issue I have with it is lack of creativity resulting in cosmetic options that change the overall look and feel of the game. How long until the cash shop allows for cosmetics that completely diverge from the theme of the game? Even some of the past packs have had questionable design choices.

    The dead do not squabble as this land’s rulers do. The dead have no desires, petty jealousies or ambitions. A world of the dead is a world at peace

    For once I see eye to eye with @Jahlon

    Also on what @Merek pointed out as well. During some time in other MMOs, the greed monster takes over and all they start to care about is pushing out more cash shop items for higher prices even if it goes against their initial vision.
    one way other games have gotten away with doing this was DLC's or expansions that were totally over the top or diverged in theme. This gave them the permission in a sense to make these cosmetics or items.
