Notice ARX FAQ

The real fun is going to happen in future when the livery sales happen - there will be lots more threads saying 'I grinded lots of Arx over the last 10 months, but spent them last week - how can u have a sale fdev - i iz ragequitter! :( '.

And ... have we heard from the lepers yet? now other people can get stuff for free by playing the game ... unacceptable!
 
Yea, but if they want, they can make you feel like you're winning. As in spending less money per unit if buying bigger packages...
Bulk purchasing benefits would make this process even worse. If i just wanna spend £3, but im being forced to spend $5, but if i spend £100 i make a 20% saving.

God i hope not.

The really good threads will be those complaining that the gametime/arxe ratio is crap.

I imagine a few by now imagine they'll be able to buy the entire stores contents just by gameplay alone.

Let's see what they do. Plenty of pitchforks available in the store if we need 'em later.

Hang on ... they're cheaper by the 100 ....

Do we want to run a book on how long until the first 'Why can't I but the CM4 with my Arxes?' thread. I give it .... 10 minutes ;)
 
Alternatively, spend the Arx that you earn by simply playing the game 🤷‍♂️
Yes, but im already 4 years into this game. Im Tripple Elite, Ive been to Sag A, ive been to colonia, Ive killed a Thargoid, I've even destroyed vladimir putin's FDL.
Until the 2020 updates lands 'Playing' Elite for the sake of it just to earn ARX to get cosmetics is somewhat obsolete. But i can buy 'PACKAGES' of ARX credits to get that FDL ship kit ive been thinking about... except now i may have to pay £10 instead of £8.

Can i still buy paint jobs/ship kits with real world money to show my love. Or do i have to buy Arx and then buy paint jobs/ship kits. Or will it be both?

fdev are pretty close to their community - I can see them allowing us to buy £1 increments so we can buy what we need. If not - pitchforks! but really - if they actually allow us to see how stuff looks in-game - that's a big win. I look forward to seeing what they've done.
 
Consoles did that for years. Not that i like it, but got used to it.
On XBox currently one can buy packages of 300, 500, 1000, 2500 points
And a normal Paint Pack (6 paint jobs) costs 300 points.

Things might be waaay different with Arx and hopefully for the better.
not bad, but not ideal either if all i want to buy is a single paint worth of 100-150 points

Isn't the same with paint packs? you want a single one of them, but you have to pay for the entire pack. **

** apparently this will be addressed in the september update, but i don't expect to pay 1/6 of the pack price

Doomed.

I like everything about this new update. Except the pre-pay digital currency system.

We know that pricing disparity will exist because Frontier are creating partity with Console players, who we know already have a pricing disparity between items and pre-pay credit packages.

If you're playing the game, you'll earn Arx for cosmetics.

If you're not playing the game, why buy cosmetics?
 
I would like to point out that you are really missing a chance to make a LOT more money on the store front, if you make them available as "Gifts" from one Commander to another you will sell much more than you do- Big mistake! HUGE!

You can already send cosmetic gifts from the Frontier Store
