Personally I don't care all that much about the accessories, but I do care about the principle. Now that SG outfits are going for like 500k+ it's becoming less and less of a way to gain star gems. Taking into account the minimum cost item on fresh finds is usually ~80 sg for a smaller accessory and 400 for an outfit, most players will have no chance of earning the sg before the item is gone. Star Gems feel like they're supposed to be a way for players to earn premium features through playing the game, but right now they're just a crappier version of AC.
I'm at a loss with regards to the intention of this strategy. Is AC not bringing in enough money that two mtx are necessary?
