i can't afford any outfit on the market, everything is so fucking expensive
Outfits were fairly cheap when I first joined because Xbox had an exploit for AC, maybe around 100 k for most of the regular outfits you could get SG off of. That ramped up to about 500K to 1 million recently due to the exploit being fixed, though Sega elected not to remove the exploited gains. Now that new genesis has been announced, I'm guessing a lot of people will just go play something else until that's out, so prices will inflate even further. On top of all that, there's the SG scratch. Twice the price, no discounts, and untradeable. Oh, and there's filler crap in there no one would ever want, too.
It's a losing battle.
