How come the dlc isn't 75% off as well?

seems kind of weird to feature the game as one of the daily deals but not actually give the DLC the same discount.

That brings a large amount of the DLC under $1, and when that happens, the only people making money are the bank on credit card transaction fees (via the store, as the dlc isn't sold via a transactional store).

And Tripwire feels the newer DLC is set right at the current discount of 50%. That may change in the future.

Then make those DLCs 75% off which won't be under $1. Problem solved.

You are just doing it because you want to make more money. There were no problems to discount DLC 75% off for 3 years. Suddenly when you started making 1 skin DLCs for 4

There are more games that dont give its DLCs discount, especially when it seems like the company wont be making any real money when everything is 75% off :rolleyes:

Haha. Because of the old DLC?
Psyco345 has some valid points for a first post even (impossibru).
Also it's only 7/19 that would be under a dollar which is like 35% of all the DLC. Also you can do separate discounts like Psyco said...
Meanwhile, $4 weapon DLC when the game is $5...
A dollar per weapon (reskin), it becomes difficult to hold your tongue.

If the seven old multi-character packs are a problem, have you considered to discontinue them and offer their skins in 2-3 large bundles? I assume that most of the completists already have these characters and others will be quite happy to buy a really large bundle at a better discount (which is probably still more money as if they only buy one single 4-character-pack at a medium discount).

Tripwire has considered several things, but for now as far as I am aware, there are no plans to change how dlc packs are currently sold. The current structure seems to work best for many of our fans (using how each dlc is purchased as a statistic to judge this).

Killing Floor has been discounted to 75% off as part of today's Winter Sale Daily Deals. If you've been meaning to pick up a copy for yourself or are looking for an extra stocking stuffer (belated) for friends and family head over to the Steam page now: http://store.steampowered.com/app/1250/

Хватит уже по 10 раз в год делать 75%+ скидки. Сделайте игру бесплатной, оставив платными DLC

Enough already 10 times a year to make 75% + discounts. Make the game free, leaving paid DLC

Err, no.

That's bull and you know it, DLC was discounted 75% off several times in the past so how come now it's a problem all of a sudden?
Or maybe they don't want to keep giving away everything at what people can find on the street to pay with?
