One Time “Deals”

This thread is to put up screen shots of your one time “deal” offers. Hopefully it will give some information that might be found useful to folks. I do wonder who actually springs for these, so if you do actually purchase please state that in your post.

Opened a solid gold pack with a henodus as the creature, then this popped up. Did not buy. :joy:

Wow that is a bad one, at least the first one I posted was 3 VIP creatures for 99.99 that’s only 15.00 more than yours for 300% more creatures.

@Potato got my offer today after opening a 10k VIP pack:


Did not purchase…
Ludia what are you thinking with these prices? I would be very curious what the actual take up rate is on these offers.

Never ever. Even half the prize would be too much.

Often, freemium games like this are funded by a few whales. Like, 0.5% of the playing population pays 99% of the revenue. In another game I played, I knew a player was filthy rich (drove an Aston Martin) and spent several thousand dollars on a freemium game every month. Sounds crazy to me, but there are people out there who are filthy rich and can spend money like that. For my part, I’d sooner spend the cost of a Concavenator on an out-of-the-box console game, but folks can spend their money however they like.

Put it this way: Ludia wouldn’t make offers like this unless someone bought them. People generally don’t repeat unsuccessful behavior.

Seems to me they’d make more money in the long run if they drop the prices. Its easy to resist spending $50-$100 hard earned dollars on a single purchase but equally easy to just justify a dollar here, two dollars there. Cause “Hey its only a dollar.” Had a coworker of mine complain that her husband spent over $50 in a month on a game. He didn’t even realize he did it because it was so little each transaction. Its death by a thousand cuts.

Totally agree that reasonable prices would probably pay for themselves with more uptake. But then with ones this outrageous I don’t even have an urge to spend money…good for MY pocketbook. Same on buying DBs. $10 to speed up a single tourny is not worth it. But if it did a dozen? I’d be really tempted then.

Got a couple more offers over the last few days. Did not partake in either of them:

For me looking at those offers is a waste of time. I doubt if anyone is willing to pay an amount of nearly one year VIP membership for a Pterodactylus.
