Ok so I paid hard earned money to display my clan emblem for 30 platinum, then I find out it costs 150 platinum ($10) to frickn upload a picture for the emblem? What the actual f**k? I could buy an entire game for $10, nevermind pay that just to show a miniscule emblem on my shoulder that no one is ever going to see besides me and my clan.
Does anyone know why they? Does it cost Digital extremes money for you to upload a picture? Cause I for sure don't think so.
I live within an hour drive of their HQ, I feel like yelling at them. Plans for tomorrow have been made.
Then again Facebook gets money from how many apps, ads, etc... Being a cosmetic feature means it doesn't have any influence on the game therefore it's not a necessary purchase. Common free to play games feature microtransactions for items with stats that are simply better than EVERYTHING else, which means that people with more money will be significantly better at the game. Let's talk extremes. If need to replace your sink and the cheapest one was upwards of $10,000 then there is just cause to be upset. However, if your sink runs fine but you want to get one made out of pure diamond you have no reason to bitch about how you had to auction off the rest of your house to afford it.
The item that costs 30 plat is effectively a badge that if you have uploaded a clan image, will be displayed on it. It's practicly no different from a event badge. It is also completely optional to get even if you do upload a clan image.
As for why the cost to upload an clan image? There is a running meme across online games about making custom art easily uploadable and viewable by the mass public. It's called "time till penis". It is effectivly how long does it take a person on the internet to begin perverting their freedom of art/creativity/uploadability with a dick pic. Good example: Eve online was gonna allow ship paintjobs, but due to the overall serious nature of eve they didn't want dick paintjobs. So their did a figure on the "time till penis" factor and came up with 6s. Six seconds before someone somewhere would make a paint job that looks like a dick and begin flying their ship around with it.
Slap a money cost on uploading and you significantly cut down on people's desire to do stupid things for the sake of doing stupid things under the cover of internet anonymity.
You could probably have just sent a request via internet, you've already payed for the platinum so it's no skin off their back. The only reason they wouldn't is maybe if they don't give it back you'll buy more plat instead to replace it.

Don't do that. Ever. DE WILL ban your account or just remove all purchased plat if they catch you making insane plat amounts in a short amount of time for no good reason due to anti-hacking and anti-scamming procedures. Also, is OP ignoring the fact that these are all cosmetics and plat can be traded for in-game? Almost every large game on the market will charge money for cosmetics, and DE is actually being quite generous making these items cost low plat to obtain, which again, is very easy to get. I have spent around 300 hours and gotten around 2k plat total or the rough equivalent of that. And I have not spent a single dollar on the game. So stop bitching and leave if you are just a greedy motherfucker.
