I think these breeding events are going the wrong way. If SP wants us to spend a ton of gems to get the new monster just put them in a dungeon and put them up for sale for whatever price you want. Say 800 gems like Baltasar lol ( yeah he's totally worth 800 gems). At least then people who want it can buy it, rank it, go have fun.
The breed events should help new players, free to play players, create some diversity in wars. Let's use the breedable legends for breeding more unbreedable legends. Not the best, but good ones like Oghma, Judgement, Barbatos . To make more players more competitive in wars, and to help with all the dungeons, and pvp. Another fun option would be to have breed events for specific war books, to help fill them out.
These breeding events are the equivalent to the $10 beer at football games.
Everyone knows the scam now, take two of the least popular monsters and make that the breed combo. To breed the two you need you need to breed two other random, unpopular monsters. Then change the breed combo tables so you get mostly 1 and a half day epics or 1 day metal monsters to breed/hatch. Oh and run the event phases back to back to make sure part two is half over if you do manage to get one of the monsters you need from part 1. Then sit back and watch as a 1000 comments pour into your community facebook page all telling you how dumb the event is. (I seriously think there is someone at SP that loves to see hate mail).
