The cost of a season is $10. You get three months of content. The upgraded event card is $10. For a three week event you get three cosmetics and then you have to earn the next five. If you buy the card you’re making it worth to bungie higher ups to continue pricing them. And then continue to do the same to newer content. Decision time? Do you want three crappy cosmetics? And for bungie to continue paywalling it? Or for them to stop and make good content you already payed for?
So don't spend the money. The people who spend the money shouldn't be harassed or blamed for stuff because they enjoy the game & are willing to spend 10 bucks. If you see no value in it simply don't spend the money.
