Problem is not just the price … it’s that Ludia is promoting players to Pay their way up the arena. Making things cheaper is not the solution, asking for FIPs to be sold is not a solution. this will make things much much more frustrating in the long run. Don’t underestimate how bad some people are with their money and what a for-profit company will do to generate revenue.
Before the rampant sale of boosts, I paid for things on occasion. I was a “vip” and made occasional value purchases.
Now I have become completely free to play and even actively avoid watching ads. Many friends who started playing at launch have left to the point that Most of my friends list are 0s. I can’t say I blame them.
I’ll turn off the app if I’m against someone who’s paid to boost the heck out of their team… or if I’m free, I’ll happily waste their time just as they plan on wasting mine.
If you find that the arena is unfair … or the game is trying to rob you of money or fun, i wouldn’t sit idly by. Your time is far too valuable.
