Finally found one of the references... Weekend New posted Jan 3rd 2020 by NineLine... The wording there was "significant discount" (with "discount" actually highlighted in red). But I think there were others references too, as once Taz1004 mentioned 'deep discount', I seem to remember that wording as well...

Not even the "best" astrologists claim to be able to infer the discount price out of the used wording alone :lol: But there is no challenge too hard for the DCS community

I believe "Deep discount" was the word used.

 

I remember "significant discount", but who cares, the impression that was given was that it is a "big discount", so not a "10% off" or "20% off". kind level.

I think that's unreasonable considering the amount of things being added to the upgrade.

 

10 Euros may be unreasonable but I think about $20 is reasonable. It'll probably sell for $80 as most latest modules are. Will be $40 during 50% sale. Then $20 for A10C owners sounds reasonable.

 

If it's $30 or more... I don't see it as significant discount from $40. Most of you probably owned A10C for years but I just purchased it last sale for $30 because the upgrade cost I thought would be significant enough to justify purchasing it first. If it will be another $30, I would've waited. Especially since I'm not even flying A10C all that much right now since I'm on Ka-50 campaign.

It's just an upgrade of a current modules, we don't know even if they will work on the modeling limitations in the systems already implemented (SADL, INS/GPS, JDAM...), but chances are low

This module will most likely be 80 usd. A10c owners may get 50% discount

Been "flying" the A-10 for 6 years. Got it on sale back then.

 

Hell they could charge $100.00 for it, and I would find a way to buy it, seeing as how I have gotten multiple returns in enjoyment and knowledge from that initial $29.00 investment.

 

Discount would be nice, but a "newer" A-10C, with previous issues addressed, new skins, modeling etc. ???

 

Shut up and take my money!!

Well the original A-10C is $60, BS2 is $50 and (I checked my receipts) the BS2 upgrade was $26, and I'd expect the A-10C upgrade to be somewhere around that as well. I wonder if they'd really go as far as upping the A-10 from 60 to 80 though.

I'm thinking that the A-10C II standalone, without any discount, could sell for $70 or $80, it'd make sense. At least assuming it's significantly different from the original A-10C, systems-wise.

I'd be willing to pay that. Less than $30. Well... I'd probably pay for a bit more than $30 but will regret buying the original on last sale. Because I'd be paying $60 total and that'll be $20 more than others would pay for the full v2 during 50% sale.

 

Unless they offer more discount for people who recently purchased... :music_whistling:

What's more likely is that the v2 won't be on sale for some time. Although that was not the case with the F-16, so who knows, really?

I really hope they allow us to pay full price for a brand new module.

 

I've paid for the DCS A-10C module years ago, and I personally don't carry that notion of entitlement around just because I dropped a few bucks on something way back when...

Ten years ago I paid 59.99 USD for A-10C pre-order or whatever it was called back then.

I can pay the same now.

I got it for $9.99... I wouldn't mind paying a little more, if it meant that I'd help ED. Especially seeing that the only announced modules that interest me is Syria (bought), the Typhoon and the F-15E.
