I play this game a lot and often find myself wanting to throw some money over to the developers, but the prices in the store are just insulting. I have spent money just for the VIP bonuses, but every time I felt ripped off. I keep looking for something worth buying, but since there is some formula dictating the relationship between Money, Souls, Gems, Maps, Gold, Glory, etc. Everything feels like 80% too expensive.
I’m not going to discuss the entire store, I’ll just look at the subscriptions since those are supposedly the best value.
$20 for 40,000 gold/day for 15 days. That’s like 10 pvp games.
$5 for 15 Gems/day for 15 days. My expected return on gems from logging in is 5.6 (lowballing it), so this is like bonus 3 logins a day.
$5 for 700 souls/day. A fast pvp team will only get me 9 souls, so thats 78 fights, but wait my dragons team makes 90 souls (8 fights) and my souls grinding team makes 350 (2 fights).
I think you will make more money if you are more generous. I’m willing to pay, I WANT to pay, but you gotta make it worthwhile.
