    From a commercial point of view, this is genius. While on step up f2p can do it if they stashed enough, there only cash works so even if the summon is cheap this is a systematic cash entry. Damn.

    They pay or they pass. And if this is cheap enough, some f2p might pay.

    I wonder if this part also counts for the ongoing limited banner units.

    "49.99$ seems cheap enough"
    I think I will pass, but that is because I cant be optimistic at the price..

    5,000 Lapis costs about 30 USD, so I guess that's the minimum we're looking at?

    I don't expect it to be cheaper than the cost of the 8.5k lapis bundle (CAD 69.99, so probably USD 50). Could be cheaper, but I don't expect Gumi to get this right the first time around.

    It is probably a good marketing strategy for them, but I am afraid a quite bad advertising strategy, which makes perfect sense with Gumi. I hope this pile of glorified trash isn't the only way they came up with to "allow players to get more rainbows" and that this won't substitute step-up banners in the future.

    Im f2p sort of i broke this rule for the fountain of lapis. If this is a similar deal then cool. If its like £30 they can go kupo themselves. Thats the price of a full new game on the PC that had more money and effort than 1 2d character that can be obtained free with alot of time and effort...just sayin

    If this is 50$, this just won't work. It better have a crazy competitive price, else it will just fail.

    I think that ~25-30$/€ might be more realistic if they want to promote this new summoning system. They event gave hints about the system in the last video during the Q&A's.

    And after you paid $$$ the rainbow is lightning... ::damn::::ink::

    Anyway from bussiness strategy, if the price is affordable for f2p, some f2p will turn into tuna.. and then grow into dolphin, then into whale.. gumi winning.. lol

    Just you know, after you bought it, dont you dare claim yourself to be f2p anymore.. lol..

    Result = no longer free to play :D

    I lost the F2P status when I bought a 1$ bundle during the 2017 NY Event and started to buy some of the very good bundles from there on.

    I vote to make a 3rd class: tb2p. Too broke to pay. We begrudgingly pay on those under $10 if its a extreme bargain.

    Lulz.. thats same with me.. i lost the status after i bought the 1$ bundle too, but forgot the content of the bundle.. and then from 1$ it grow into the good deal bundles.. hahaha.. i guess we are examples that fall into marketing strategy of gumi ^^

    I really hope the price for this summon is affordable ^^

    I'm gonna do it if it's cheap enough. If it's like 30$ it technically still is cheaper than buying 5k Lapis from having 0,but still no...
