The offers that we use to see in the game, if you have been playing this for a while and know the costs, are kinda bad. Some of them are horrible, a rip-off.
Are there people really spending money in these crappy offers?
examples in euros, for dollars is a bit better, but still bad:
Monster+2700gems+lvl IX or sometimes lvl X rune for 110euros = where is the offer?.
Assuming everybody only purchases gems when they are on offer (which happens all the time) -> 1700 gems = 55 euros. So, we can say that more or less 31gems are 1 euro.
Legendaries, if you wait, will be on sale for 250 gems. That’s around 8 euros for legendary (as you see, this game is pretty expensive). If it is a premiere one, will be 300 gems aprox. That’s almost 10 euros for a premiere monster. LvlX runes use to be at offer for 345 gems from time to time. Every month you have this offer, I would say. And there are runeX offers that put the price even lower. So one lvl X rune is around 11 euros, normally. (Crazy price if you think about it). 2700 gems are around 87 euros.
87+11+8= 106 euros.
The “offer” is 110 euros. Sometimes a lvl IX rune is offered instead a X. Where is the bargain that would make people really think about it?
Yes, you can argue that with this you just have a monster like flamerion right now, and you don’t have to wait for offers.... but still. Offers by SP are way FAR from attractive, at least to me.
Chest 300 gems right now, you can get a “cool” monster, and a rune (up to lvl 3) , a few epic cells and a small amount of food. What a joke. There are monsters in this lottery like Varuna (pretty shitty nowadays) and others that have been offered and rewarded several times.
Now another super offer, for 1000 gems a chest with all monsters in chapter 4 Dragons. (Even the reward for completing the chapter is a joke) 8 monsters, but I would say only 1 (maybe 2?) can be useful nowadays. The rest are junk. People would say, but for 1000 gems, the price of each of those 8 monsters is super nice. Error. It is not. Spending gems in such outdated and weak monsters is a waste. You can spend those 1k gems in way better ways these days in order to improve.
The king of the gems event, again ridiculous bonus. Yeah, you get them for “free” if you are willing to spend gems, but still... it is a really poor offer, 0 attractive for most of us. (There was a time that they gave 3 lvl X runes, probably before the greedy Two Times company arrived. That was an offer that may people think into purchasing gems).
How many times I see a 3 monster pack for 600 gems, where 2 could be nice but they include a crappy outdated one, or a breedable one? Come on..... I feel like this kind of “offers” are really dishonest, trying to catch up new players, or kids, I guess.
I could continue with a lot of ”offers” that we are given normally, and they are less and less attractive, and the willing to spend money in this game is almost inexistant for many of us.
+another point+ as I already mentioned before, if you do some calculations like I did, this game is very very VERY expensive. The prices are totally out of control.
For 50 euros/bucks you can purchase a brand new game, just as an example. Sp should really think in lowering the gems price. It is just ridiculous right now. They removed the cheaper price from facebook, really bad moves that show desperation and greediness.
What do you (players) think? Anyone out there buying these “offers”?
