I think much of what you said is right about the event but I really do not understand why so little is being reduced.
Halloween stuff - I would suspect that these are old stuff recycled(?) I 'NEARLY' bought a pack because the camo was 'NEARLY' the colour palet I liked. 'NEARLY!' - The price stopped me; had it been less cost I would have. It was really a 'near' thing, but again the greed/price prevented me investing in the game.
Another problem is, I am someone who watches old videos as well as new ones and have seen cool camos and great character/captain tattoos etc.Therefore I know there is far more available, that is already sitting there not needing to be 'created', which could be released at a lesser price to give players a choice and compelling reason.
So many things about this game is soo close to being right - but close is not good enough if the game intends to survive. 48% on Steam - you need to turn this around guys.
Invest in the players and treat them fair and they will become more connected to the game.
