See, and then we get answers like this to a very valid question that completely undermine the good will received earlier on this post.
The question merits a response because it is absolutely bait and switch selling tactics which could be used as an argument to get every penny the players spent back. You guys really need to look at your bread and butter and understand that screwing that playerbase screws everyone. If there's no money coming in then there's no game.
While we're on this topic you should look at rewards across the board. You set these arbitrary prices that make no sense. For instance, I can make 100k gold in probabably 45 minutes, maybe less, but if you buy that same gold with gems and convert those gems to real money you are (I'm not in the game right now, so I'm going off of memory) spending around 30 bucks. You really think that adds up to fair?
and we know, you guys are working on bugs, but your entire economy is wonkers and needs an overhaul.
