Some people are going to hate me for this, but I actually think this might be a good idea for the health of the server.
Right now, all the types of megaphones are the same price of GMS (as far as i'm aware, correct me if i'm wrong), but our capability of generating NX is much higher.
This causes a huge amount of megaphones being available to pretty much everyone at a very low price, meaning that they are very easy to spam, making the chat flooded with at least 10 megaphones a minute. It is true that we have an option to disable megaphones, but it's not that seeing megaphones is the issue, it's the amount of them that is making them more of a problem.
The increase in price will cause them to still be available to everyone (because let's be real, you can generate around 40k NX just from doing PQs which take an hour and a half at best), but make people actually feel that they are paying a price for them instead of being able to spam them all day long with 0 consenquence.
It is true that spamming megaphones isn't advised and probably if someone goes over the top it is an offense, but due to the huge amount of them every minute it is hard to even enforce such rules.

Your statement speaks as if Megaphone is the only usage of NX.

Increasing their price won't change a thing.
