    Didn't want to make this thread due to people coming up with the same excuses, that the money helps the server or that it will reduce lag but no.

    The ranks are overpriced!! Compared to other servers this looks like a joke.
    The most expensive rank costs 200 Euros, and it gives nothing compared to the diamond rank. ( Apart from a few armor pieces maybe )
    Other servers have lower priced ranks, that have a lot more features and that don't have missing features ( WorldEdit etc. )
    I'm for a price reduction as I feel like I'm getting scammed for not getting what's promised and even if I'd get everything I'd still be pretty pissed about the prices.

    Here are my suggested prices :
    Iron 5 GBP
    Lapiz 15 GB
    Gold 25 GBP
    Diamond 45 GBP
    Emerald 70 GBP
    Obsidian 85 GBP

    These prices make a lot more sense, and I don't think they will lose much money since more people will buy the ranks.

    For the people saying that we are buying ranks to make the server come with new features and fix bugs see this thread :https://www.cubecraft.net/threads/maintaining-promises.95367/

    I agree with the prices, if the ranks aren't too expensive, many people would buy a rank.

    I don't think they will change the prices, Nilton. But indeed they are a bit overpriced.

    Because Cubecraft doesn't earn money through advertisement, the only way they can earn money is through expensive ranks. If you want to be a rank, you will just need to wait for a discount.

    For you its not a good business because you're losing money. But for them its perfect. And its not just playing games all day. They need to do real work, like emails, code, fix server problems, etc. Don't be upset because they're earning money from your loss.

    I would define a job as a contribution that warrants a frequent and adequate paycheck, so yes, it is their job.

    I would usually agree with you, had these ranks not been sold to thousands of users already. By lowering the prices they'd be devaluing the ranks that players currently have in their possession, which would without a doubt result in a negative response from those who have recently purchased a rank.

    A better approach would be to implement new perks, as to justify the money that players have spent on these ranks, such as a /speed command in lobbies, or the addition of Elytra's for cosmetic use in the hub.

    Prices are high and I agree with you. If the prices were lower, I would definitely buy higher ranks and maybe even come back to minecraft.

    Editing the price of the ranks makes me feel scammed, Cause I bought Obsidian 2 weeks ago (with sale tho)
