I don't understand why they don't just make skins like 20k SC.
That way everyone REALLY wants one can probably justify spending $30 or w/e on one permanent skin they want and then apart from those guys, who are too scared to ever touch LB (quite rightly), you can have the other people willing to spend a bit to pick up two or three or even four of the skins they like.
There's no cap on skin design either. You can restat the old skins that everyone loves like Blossom, Teva & Nature's beauty (which has been done) to make plenty of money, plus introduce new ones to make even more. No doubt there will be a portion of the population that values a collection for their main character and collects many of these skins. Again, it's not like making money will be an issue.
I'm a fan of the new skins, but after hearing several horror stories from players along with the ones in this thread, I'm staying away and advising my friends and guildies to stay away as well.
TLDR: Quit using a system that benefits only Gamigo. You can shift the way skins are sold, still make a killing, perhaps more and benefit the players at the same time.
