-Steinberg Absolute or at least Halion (when thy offer 50%)
In case you missed it, HALion 6 is 50% off right now, even the crossgrade (cheapest?) and upgrades.

Good to keep in mind though that since HALion 7 will be coming out some time in 2022, we would need to pay a significant update price. Also, there is no grace period announcement for that. I was a little tempted, but will probably wait as there is no urgency if at all in this case.
I think I'll be avoiding Steinberg. I think they're planning some kind of future weird copy protection.
Guess you are not using any plugins that currently have similar copy protection? I have a couple such plugins right now and I think it is not bad. Steinberg's copy protection won't behave any differently, so I am OK with that.

I personally think that this type of copy protection was selected by various companies because most of the people these days have continuous access to internet or at least it is easy enough to connect once in 30 days. Hobbyist commnity is increasing day by day.

What I would definitely avoid are plugins that require us to be continuously online, e.g. iLok Cloud (e.g. Slate's Fresh Air - which is the only such plugin I use because it is free, simple, and great.)

Not trying to convince or anything, just sharing some thoughts. Everyone's situation is different. :)

EDIT: And on point regarding Steinberg, I am interested in only Groove Agent 5 now. Dropped the thought of getting HALion 6; don't need it.

Of course I didn't miss it :D
About grace period I don't care, when upgrade is then 99EUR/2->45EUR for next BF

Here's now my final status:
-NI Razor 49,50€
-NI TRK-01 24,50€
-Massive X 74,50€
-Arturia V collection 99€
-Steinberg Halion 124,50€
-FF Volcano 3 56,41€
-Heavyocity Punish 49€
-Captain Plugins 59,40€
-Tracktion Waveform Pro 34,50€
-Tone2 Rayblaster 59,40
-Tone2 Nemesis 59,40

Wow, almost 700 bucks. Am impressed about myself. Let's see what will be regularly used then...

Final verdict:
Cherry Audio Quadra
Sugar Bytes Obscurium
Sugar Bytes Aparillo
Softube Overstayer
Softube British Class A
Softube Fix Doubler
Softube Fix Flanger
Softube Fix Phaser
Fabfilter Volcano 3

Cubasis 3 for iPad
aaaand: Volcano 3 for iPad for the insane amount of €2.. (completed the bundle of 3 plugins which I already owned 2 of)

I also got Dune 3, but it was before the Black Friday discount because I thought Synapse wouldn't do one.... silly me

edit: just added Tracktion Waveform because why not? Plus I had a couple of discount points plus BF deal...

In the end all I bought was Super 8. I intended to buy Largo but missed the sale. I really don't need any more VAs, and I'm quite content with my bread & butter effects. At this point I'm happy to wait for something unique or mindblowingly superior to something I already own, which doesn't happen often.

Bought a few things..

Some of them I've been wanting for a while now but this was the best time to get them. I have a PluginBoutique account and bought the Izotope Tonal Balance Bundle upgrade from any Ozone or Neutron standard.

The other thing I picked up was Massive X + 5 addons just so I can learn how to reverse engineer some of the patches. I also got Replika XT because i like abusing the Vintage Digital sampler, similar to what you can do with Soundtoys Primal Tap, just minus the ilok.

With the U-he coupon I got Bazille which is awesome because I love messing with phase modulation synthesis and doing it with cables is just too cool. It's definitely a geeks synth, but I love how organic it can sound when you put the work in.

One of the better deals I got was an upgrade offer to Acoustica Premium from my Noise reduction bundle I purchased a while back. Now I got all the plugins from Acon digital and wow there are some serious goodies in there! Verberate2 is kind of one of my favourite reverbs. I even like it better than some of the Valhalla plugins which I demoed but found to be way too hyped at least to my ears.

That's pretty much it, I feel like I could probably be good for a while with this. However we all know how that goes :wink:

Bazille is indeed awesome and the reason I bought almost everything U-he afterwards. Not for everyone though. Those days I notice I'm blocked I just play with it doing patches instead.

It was on a BF "discount" for € 359 (instead of € 389) at a dutch webshop.

Not strictly BF but I got IK's Total Studio 3.5.

I figured it's cheaper to go this way as opposed to buying single instruments.

Hammond is great, Fame reverb, too.

Modo bass not so much (I won't install modo drums, don't really need them).

SampleTron 2 is pretty great, too.

What I actually bought across BF/CM/etc. . . .

Nothing.

edit: Nothing for me. And no software at all.
