Unhappy with license price hikes!

Autodesk flame is making decisions very difficult moving forward.
Every year there is a possibility of a min 5-10% price hike by my reseller. I don’t have an option to buy monthly in India - I have to buy an annual license - why ?
It is getting unaffordable given the low budgets by every client out there in this world of auction we live in now.
I absolutely love Flame but can’t ignore what Davinci & Adobe are doing. The younger lot and the big studios will eventually phase out Flame unfortunately.
