Regardless of if folks think prices are exorbitant in the game I was pointing out that if someone was to spend money to expedite their progress in the game the level up package deals are the best ‘value’ for your real-life cash purchase. All I hear is people trashing them as not worth purchasing as all they get is worthless DNA. The DNA should not come into the equation, it is a bonus.
People also talk trash about the ‘free’ incubator every 6 hours. To me it is 2 or 3 bucks a couple times a day and a guaranteed 20 darts for first thing in the morning. (As well as the 15 from the overnight incubator.) If I stayed up late darting from home, at least I can get a few tries at something nearby before I have to get dressed and leave the house to stock up.
Whatever users think of their pricing policies, it must be working for them or they would have changed it. I can guarantee someone has been crunching the numbers to maximize profit. There are many examples in life. Look at the price of a movie ticket, or purchasing popcorn there, Starbucks coffee! I feel they are way to overpriced and do not purchase them, but they are still in business at those prices so must be selling enough to make numbers. If their numbers dropped they may adjust pricing to increase sales, but no need to if they are still profitable.
