Atoms in this game are ridiculously overpriced for what the atom shop costs are. The cost for 500 atoms is $6.49 CAD (plus tax) which ends up being $7.33.
What can 7 dollars buy you? A sleeping bag. Woohoo.
This is an absolute slap in the face. For comparison, Oblivion's horse armor is only $2.50 and even when you doubled the price as an April fool's joke this was STILL A BETTER DEAL AS A JOKE THAN ATOM SHOP PRICES.
I would have easily spent 10-20 dollars on atoms if they'd actually been worth it. One or two dollars an item would be reasonable but $7 dollars? You expect me to pay a tenth the cost of the game to buy a sleeping bag? I paid full price for this game, didn't complain when it was half-price a week later and stuck with it through bug after frustrating bug. Lower your atom shop prices please, I will literally give you my money.
Edit: I am aware you can get free atoms from challenges. This is about purchasing atoms. You get a lot early on from challenges but this stops eventually, save for dailies/weeklies. If you are satisfied with the small amount of free atoms you get that is great. A lot of us want to pay for them but not at a ridiculous price. It is impossible to buy everything with free atoms since items are released faster than free items can be earned.
Second edit: People saying you can get infinite atoms by redoing the challenges on another character are full of it. Challenges are account based and not repeatable.
