So what is the Premier Club for?
I mean after the Mechromancer I have received nothing from it. You would think that it would be novelty stuff like all non-campain DLC. Now with the release of the skins that are $1 a peice. I think cheap stuff like that would be the kinda of things you would be giving fans for free.

the premier club was a special version for players whom could not pre order at the time of release and also you get the mechromancer character as part of the deal..but i do agree the premier club could of offered more unique content but in essence gearbox wants more money from players thats how it works :)

It clearly shows, BL2 could have been a even much better game. I love it, but after you stuggle with the terrible item scaling which was done to cover up hardly any balancing; you will find yourself at lvl 50 farming legendarys or killing them uber bosses for the challenge?. You can't even duel without blowing up the other with a overkill of +1000% his/her hp+shields added together.

I agree, should have just got the skins for free, they couldn't have been that expansive. Consider how much Gearbox has made off of BL2.. wouldn't it be nice to get a thank-you in form of some nice little dlc's, but no they rather milk like all the rest of the money sucking dev's.

screw gear box greedy pack of pigs havnt they made enough dough as it is you shove this game where the sun dont shine.

Yeah it does seem pretty nickel and dime-ish, to charge for new skins, especially not in a package. Not sure how many there are in total for a buck a piece but it'd of been smarter, more fan friendly to offer a cosmetic upgrade for 5-10 bucks total. IF you even charge people cause to my knowledge season passes usually give you everything. Smh what next, dlc not included in the season pass? The more you pay for the more they feel at liberty to charge you.

I love the game, don't mind supporting the devs but this feels petty.

Listen, the game has enough content as it is. People saying that gearbox are a money pigs are wrong. First of all, you get a lengthy, well made, good looking game with coop. Not having DLC can be irritating, especially when everyone is like "its super awesome, you have to play it!! But DLC is just added side missions other random stuff. Gerbox deserves every penny they get for making this game and its more than enjoyable in its original form.

As a person that got pre-order and bought the season pass (and got two friends to do the same) I alone have helped them get $250. Not counting those that got the higher bundles. So this is not about the extra classes, story, or mission content. We have paid for those, we understand. But a skin that does nothing and cost $1 is a bit of a scam. Just from a marketing point of view, giving them away goes to the good will of the company that would later translate to better sale down the road. And it cost them little to nothing.

People who are freaking about the season pass not giving them EVERY piece of DLC need to chill out. It clearly said when you bought the season pass that you would just be recieving the four DLC packs and saving ten bucks, not that they were going to give you everything they release for the game. It's a SEASON pass, not a promotion to CEO of Gearbox. If you think that they shouldn't have charged $1 per skin, fine... DON'T BUY THEM.

(I do agree that premier club should be expanded on, it could've been a cool idea)

The point is that the term "Season Pass" is somewhat misleading and also that most games that offer seasons passes include all DLC content. I think that it is truly unfortunate and somehwat stupid that the Season Pass doesn't include all DLC. I would have pruchased it by now if it did.

The reality is that it isn't a true season pass.

$1.75 for aussies so it would cost us $26.25 to buy all the packs

Hardly worth it when there is already a heap of skins built into the game
GrippleChew Jan 22, 2013 @ 7:56pm 
the nice thing about this is if you don't like the skins you don't have to buy any. also, if you like just one, you don't need to buy an entire pack, you can just induldge a little. But, whatever, rage on ppl! Rage on. What's the internet without rage, right?

tl;dr

Premiere club was when you pre-ordered the game
You get a 2nd golden key, a pack of gun at lv1, a relic with +5% loot chance and access to gaige when it was released

And like GrippleChew said about the skin, stop doing a huge affair and being offended...
they released just skin... If it was like special gear to make character overpowered or some sort of exp unlock pack etc ok i would admit, good reason to shout
but FFS those are just skin head.. dont like.. dont buy.. end

Alright, folks. This was never a huge deal as to the Season Pass. I knew well in advance that the SP was only for the expansion content and nothing more. What I am saying is that those that did pre-order the game they should have be given something a little more extra as a thank you. This is not about entitlements that we demand from the devs. It's about a "what if" and a missed chance at the people over in Gearbox's PR department. Besides, on the topic of skins, they should have just released them in 3 different bundles (for about $3) instead of in pieces. Or at the very least half the price they are now. Something I'm sure the GOTY will have bundled into it.

Premier club was only for the mechromancer. The other garbage was low level only. As for the over-over priced skin pack, they can keep it. The newest call of duty DLC has better value for the $15 than a bunch of mostly ugly skins and heads.

I only pre-ordered because of goodwill and that's it. I'd love to have seen a limited time offer for members to redeem a coupon on DLC at a discount when they came out, or pick one free skin pack from the recent DLC, but no.

The "Premiers" Club is a misleading title. Like other pre-order bonuses, I got a novelty feeling for ordering first, but I don't get recognized for it anymore. The golden guns are useless as they get replaced in first half hour. The Vault Relic does absolutely nothing in terms of loot so at least I didn't have to pay for Gaige. Woo hoo!

I don't care if I get something for the Premier Club. I didn't want it in the first place, and withuot any benefits for being part of it, I'm not interested. At this point, there is nothing people will get for being a member and it makes me sad. I wanted to have a member sticker saying I was special :<
