Who spit in your cereal? I haven’t missed any point. I read your math and other people’s opinions then provided my own opinion that I feel it’s worth buying them daily. You did after all request people voice their opinions on this, right?
Whether paying more gems to shave 2 weeks is worth it is highly subjective and depends on a lot of little factors that each individual may value more or less than others. If you’re impatient it might be. If you’re patient it might not be. If you value jewels, shards and/or runics over duplicate troops to trade in for a pitence of souls then probably worth it. If you don’t consider yourself lucky with chests again probably worth it to save yourself heartache & disappointment by buying more diamonds.
I’ll repeat but with more detail, it most certainly DOES factor in and WILL affect one’s opinion on whether it’s worth shaving time between mythics. If you earn tons of gems/week you’re likely to feel it’s worth spending some extras on daily packs to get a mythic faster. If you’re struggling getting gems you’re most likely going to take the frugal route and wait the extra 2 weeks. That’s a direct correlation of gem income to one’s opinion on worthiness of purchasing daily packs.
Furthermore, if you can’t afford to purchase the packs everyday than your opinion will again likely be that it’s not worth trying to purchase more than just the Sunday pack. If you can afford it, then your opinion would be based on how much you value your wait time vs other resources you can acquire with those same gems. Again, low & behold your gem income will influence your opinion of the worthiness to purchase daily packs. I don’t recall you qualifying your request for people’s opinions to exclude opinions of those who can’t afford to purchase the daily packs.
My opinion is they are worth it because I don’t feel lucky with chests, I have a high enough income of gems to support it and gain enough keys that I typically don’t have to spend a hoard of gems to get newly released mythics, and I value the resources I gain from the daily packs over those I can receive from chests (can’t get jewels from chests and 24 runics for 300 gems certainly beats the runic drop rates in chests).
Many of us don’t have access to VIP chests so your calcs on the opportunity cost of losing 6 VIP chests/year are moot to us. Obviously if you can access VIP chests that may change your opinion of worthiness.
Am I still missing the point?? For the next time you ask for people’s opinions on something you’ve clearly made up your mind about already, perhaps consider not summarily dismissing those opinions so quickly and rudely or just don’t ask for them in the 1st place.
