Does anyone else feel that the diamond tariff change is a slap in the face for the longterm players? I came back to game (previously left since game was too expensive for a highschool student...now that I have a "big" boy job I can spend a few every so often, so i wanted to come back to this game that I loved) and there is no way I'm willing to pay at the "regular" prices. Cool, they increased the diamonds you get for the "regular" price now...but as far as I understand, that means they are reducing that promo diamond amount you get? If i'm reading this wrong, can someone clarify?
I know, if I get less diamonds than which I normally would spending $100 on a sale, then I definitely will not buy the diamonds, since they are giving me even less. Returning player about to no longer play because of this ridiculousness.
Other peoples thoughts?
"For a long time, Runes of Magic has suffered from a major disparity in there being a major price imbalance for Diamonds between regular periods and happy hours.
This situation made it very difficult to set appropriate prices for new and discounted items in the shop. We want to ensure that our item prices are both fair and balanced.
In order to solve this problem, we’re changing our tariffs. From now on you’ll receive more Diamonds when buying, while simultaneously reducing the bonus amount during happy hours.
We hope this change will bridge the major divide as it currently stands and smooth out the pricing imbalances. Look out for more changes and alterations to the shop over the coming weeks and months.

my comments for each part of the above.
1st: it suffered because the prices are absolutely rediculous and the sales price makes it worth to kind of buy
2nd: it made it difficult? What? I don't like this sentence one bit...if you wanted to make sure item prices are both fair and balanced...then dont slap people who wait to buy diamonds at better prices by reducing the amount they are going to get...
3rd: So they think fixing an issue of over priced diamonds is to sell the "regular" non sale priced diamonds and you get a little bit more but if you are patient and want to buy at actually fair prices, they are going to reduce the amount you get??? how does that make sense.
4th: you recognize there is a gap...reason being, the prices are rediculous as they are, the "regular" sales are still expensive but a lot more fair than the "regular" prices...but somehow you guys think that means you should give us even less diamonds now for the same amount of money paid????
