First off, they said that they weren't going to add anything in the cash shop that would give an unfair advantage but they clearly lied. Then, after people made countless posts, protesting FoD and perfumes, nothing was changed in the slightest. Now, the cash shop crap..
They tell us to send them e-mails and post our opinions about what we think should be changed but they don't really give a crap. They've only made a total of two statements regarding the cs and FoD complaints, which didn't say anything other than.. "Oh, you don't like this? We'll continue to look into the situation. Continue to send us an e-mails about your complaints." When 96% of your player base has a problem with something, you should probably, I dunno, change it. Not say that you're going to see how things go.
If these two huge issues can't even be resolved with such backlash of the community, then I have no faith that anything from the slightest bugs to customer support will be handled decently.
The CS prices are pretty insane and especially the $20 bag. Not only is it too expensive but in a few weeks, they will probably release a bigger bag, then continually release bigger bags, not reducing the price if you already bought a previous one.
I wasn't going to spend massive amounts of money on the game to begin with but I was willing to part with a few bucks here and there for bags/bank slots and maybe upwards of $10 or so a month if necessary. Though anything above that, I'd rather just reactivate my WoW account or find a nice P2P game than spend more than that on a partially completed, buggy, greed driven game.

They need to realize that the cheaper things become, the more they'll actually sell. If they were to just cut prices by like 50-75%, they'd get more than double/triple the purchases most likely.
Heck, I'd probably spend a good chunk of money on the cash shop myself if the prices were lowered.
20 bucks for 6 extra inventory slots is just plain ridiculous.
And their reply to all of this is a bit sad... basically saying, "Sorry you guys think the prices are a bit outrageous, but we're gonna add more items to it soon. Plus, remember you can get all this stuff in game, or trade these items in-game!"
Chances are that they'll eventually cave in and reduce prices significantly.

It affects PvE just as bad. The most recent Russian patch has made it so that when you are resurrected by another player, it will cause FoD. Before the patch it didn't. So this means everyone in a raid will need perfumes on entire the entire time.
Of course you can get perfumes from quests (1 per char per day @ lvl 15+) or buy them from the AH (probably for a crap load of gold though) and save them up for raids and not spend a dime. Though, those are ridiculous solutions to such a stupid game mechanic that shouldn't even be in the game to begin with.
