Your logic is slightly flawed in that the normal, retail price is $199 and you would pay $180, a savings of nearly $20. Yes, others might receive a higher discount, but they are taking a higher initial risk, and investing a higher amount of money up front. You could have done the same, so in a sense, the system is also fair in that respect.
By upgrading, you are gaining access to a lot of features, and I think, features worth more than the $199 normal price. There are many articles explaining how Gravity Forms prices low and how it is such a value.
If you feel you are being penalized in some way, I'm sorry, but we don't see it that way at all, and I would hope that your excitement to use our professional level add-ons and priority support would be an overriding benefit to you and your business. I hope you'll take a look at what our development license offers, and the continued new add-ons we've released, and consider upgrading. I feel that even our new Zapier add-on is worth the price of admission. Check it out if you haven't already. http://www.gravityhelp.com/gravity-forms-zapier-add-on-v1-0-beta-1-released/
