Maybe there point wasn’t clear.

If you want more and get more by playing more, it’s functionally the same as if the ornaments were priced in time. If you earn one synth thingy per 2 minutes, then it’s not really any different if you were just given the ornament after playing for X minutes. They are just abstracting the system in which the real currency is your time.


Letting people know "It will take about 7 hours to earn a piece of armor" will keep a lot of people from even starting.

Telling people "It will cost 150 Synthstrand to buy a bounty to earn enough Synthweave for a piece of armor" sounds far more reasonable.

Yes… this is my point. You are 100% correct. So they are dressing up something that they KNOW people would otherwise not like, rather than changing it to something they would that would require no subterfuge.
