I agree, everything is too bloody expensive. In Beta#1 for this game, I thought everything was priced pretty well, I could buy some cool looking gear to keep me sated for a while. Now in Beta#2 shit is extremely inflated, i.e. 1.8k for an Ops Core Fast. Waaaay too much, it would make more sense if the standalone helmet was worth 1.8k and they just gave you all the colors. It might be the sign of a microtransaction system coming into the game, but man would that be just dumb for a game like this.
I'd honestly prefer if the game maintained a casual feeling. Competitive Insurgency doesn't sound very appealing to me but I'm sure they could potentially find middle ground between the player base. I'm just confident that most of the player base is in the majority for a casual experience.
Armor is super viable without the presence of AP rounds at the moment.
I feel like they're way too inflated, should find some middle ground in the prices from the first beta and this current one.
