  1. I purchased the Ultimate Fan Pack. I am disappointed with the cost-to-value; as-is, it is overpriced.
    The Ultimate Fan Pack should have, at the very least, included DDO Store points.
    Ideally, the UFP should have included an Otto’s Stone, giving you the option of heroic or epic XP.

  2. I will sadly wait for March to buy it for TP I already have. The ultimate/collector pack offers almost nothing interesting and getting the standard edition would mean that I pay $40 for something I will get for no additional cost in March.
    What a wasted opportunity to make money and create good will.

  3. Of course, we have to buy times 3 in our house!!

  4. I bought the Ultimate Fan Bundle…of course.

    Honestly not sure yet. I kind of want the Ultimate pack, but the date is real close to my VIP renewal date, so that makes my cost between here and Christmas $228, far more than I was ready for.

  6. I totally agree with the all of the players that are saying loud and clear that the ultimate bundle is overpriced, comparing with other expansions.

    I always have acquired the biggest bundle of each expansion, except this one, and I am disappointed with this situation. I want to support the game, as I always have done, but this bundle shucks, even if give me the impression that SSG is teasing us, which even enrage me further.

    It Includes a lot of things with out real value to players, because you will be able to obtained then latter with favor or with ddo points, (race, iconic, vistany tree,….). As you say it miss the real things players value the most which are ddo points or Ottos Boxes, or even enhancement to bank or reincarnation cache.

    I don’t really understand what is the sale strategy of the SSG, but it is clearly misunderstanding what their players wants. Their is one big maximum in sales, MARKET VALUE, which means customers must perceive the value of your product, which can be a competitive low price, a lot of features, unique features,… etc, and certainly you need to listen to your customer to see what they expect. None of this is in the ultimate bundle. Not to say that a pre-purchase, without even a preview of the expansion (so is a blind purchase from their customers), should be accompanied with and extra gift,…

    In my opinion, SSG must change their sale strategy, if not they will continue to lose players and at the end they will close, but who knows maybe that is their strategy, stress their milky cow till starvation,…

  7. I was really willing to buy the collector´s bundle to support the game, but I´m not paying such a steep price for a bundle filled with cosmetics and shards. When I compare the Raveloft 130$ edition with MotU´s collector´s edition (80$), it becomes very clear that it is a rip-off and a complete disappointment. I was expecting SSG as a new studio to take better care of its customers than Turbine/WB did in the past. Nope, it actually gets worse.

    I´m not against cosmetics as accessories, but if the game wants to attract new players (greatly needed, player base is really low) the devs should focus on bringing great quality content to the game. Taking into account that this pack includes only 12 quests (1 week of new content, then repeat, repeat, repeat) and 1 raid (maybe 3 months of life if you can find an LFM), the price certainly looks super high. You can buy The Witcher 3 in Steam for 20$, including 200-350 Hours of the best RPG content you can possibly enjoy nowadays, with a technical level which is 2 light-years above DDO.

    I love DDO because I freakin´ love D&D. This is not the turnaround we were hoping for from SSG. I want to support the game, but I don´t want to pay for smoke.

  8. Buy the Ultimate Fan bundle already! SSG doesn’t have the economies of scale that the devs enjoyed under Turbine, so I am sure that the cost of making Ravenloft may have been higher per hour than the MOTU expansion.

  9. Yeah, these price points are at least 30% more than I planned for. I’m waiting to pick a bundle until after Black Friday – what if it goes on sale?!?! Of course, if there was a Black Friday sale on the expansion, I can only imagine the riot among ppl who paid full price, so that probably won’t happen. Still, I figure I should practice nursing hope now, before Strahd crushes us all…

  10. Bought the Ultimate bundle after staring at a spreadsheet and trying to assess what the bundles were really worth to me (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/490782-Ravenloft-value-calculator).

    I decided to continue supporting the game as always, but I’m not impressed with the value of the ultimate bundle from a purely personal perspective.

    Hopefully lessons can be learned for the next expansion 🙂
