There's too many wings in gachas now.
For years, wings were rare and prestigious items. There were only a few kinds and they came out rarely, so they were worth a lot and people valued them due to how unique they were. I remember for years I was wishing I could afford or get a pair of wings somehow, and when I finally got my first pair I wore them all the time because of how rare it was to have wings. I even redid outfits around them because the wings were unique.
However over time, more and more wings have been added to more and more gachas. It's not uncommon for a gacha today to introduce 5-10
new wing items! It's gotten to the point that they're not special, a gacha having wings does not make it a special gacha
Just look at what housing looks like nowadays.
All the extra wings are just taking up space, and people are selling them for a fraction of the old prices or less (I've picked up wings for less than a mil
in Belvast multiple times). People are selling them low and multiple at a time to get rid of them because they're not special anymore
, the pricing is a good reflection of what players think about most wings now.
I understand that multiple colors are introduced so players have variety of options, but Mabi has a dye system for a reason
, and there are some dyeable wings so we know it works
. If Nexon was to stop putting so many wings in gachas and have them dyeable, they'd be rare (less of them available) and special (can dye to match your stuff) items once more.
And since they'd be rarer and more special, more people would be tempted to buy gachas actually wanting the wings, instead of treating the wings as filler items to resell.
