Yup which is why I make threads like this so they see them and everyone else saying the same thing.
Remember, the squeaky wheel gets the grease!
I mean when it was a choice between a full fledged and highly addictive…yet FREE to play game like D3, or a one time offer which in all likelihood would give me DNA I didnt want anyways, it was an easy choice to make!
I am actually also considering cancelling VIP also until they fix the problems like dinosaurs getting stuck in in strike towers, because the only reason I pay VIP is really to help support the devs, but they aren’t doing their job clearly because all the major bugs still exist…I mean I cant even log into the game on my phone unless I set the date, time and region to New York, and its been this way for the last few patches with NO fix!
Like seriously why pay devs if they aren’t doing their job? makes no sense!
Haha well said @Stiffeno. I bought Assassin’s Creed Odyssey last month, and will be getting Pokémon Let’s Go this month because I want real value-for-money rather than pour money into Ludia’s extortionate money-pit for JWA fluff. I totally agree their price-model for this ‘casual mobile game’ is exceedingly expensive for what you get, and probably well out grasp for the majority of their player-base, so as you say they’re ultimately losing money (and player’s good will).
I wouldn’t hold my breath for lower prices. If they were to say cut the price of stuff in half, everyone who paid full price for the one time offers would lose their yit. I agree I would buy way more of them if they were 10-20$ range 50-80 is ridiculous. Plus half the time the Epic is Koolasuchus or secodontasaurus to rub salt in the wound of your wallet. Haha
I’m not sure how anyone can justify ‘gambling’ that kind of money, if yer gonna waste it probably better to waste it down the bookies at least you’ll have the chance of actually getting some return for your money. :-/
(still waiting for my first reply to be un-auto-censored)
They could reduce. Those who invested might complain but so what. They agreed that price. Say you went to a shop and paid £50 for a jacket but then 2 months later it was reduced to £25. You have no legal right to complain because it is up to the seller if he wishes to change price
People shouldn’t have to worry about leveling up in a game that actually encourages doing so if you’re only able to potentially pay for any on rather infrequently based times.
Basing your level-ups around your paycheques/allowance/whatever is utterly ridiculous.
In a week, I’m getting a full set of winter tires for my car, paying the normal bills and anything extra is so that the bank stops charging me overdraft fees and I can get a small fund going to support emergencies.
I MIGHT be tempted to get something IF the deal is good and it’s not detracting from some kind of actual necessity but putting people “on the spot” when they gain a level is selling to a customer under duress and shouldn’t even be legal.
At least after player level 20 they should stop asides from accessing new arena tiers for the first time, right? 3/4 of the way to 18 right now.
