Let’s say that there is a full Guild of 30 members, and at least 15 people don’t have the wanted Event weapon yet.
30 x $5 = $150 / 2 = $75
Imagine, if only 50% of those would buy those Event Weapons, they could still earn $75.
And that’s only one Guild. There are hundreds of them that are still active.
I mean, this is my biggest issue with this game, their monetization system.
They offer you ridiculously overpriced items that also have a chance to drop a duplicate Legendary or Mythic troop that you already have or you don’t need, or they add a weapon that you don’t have, but have everything else, yet your only choice is to buy the whole Bundle pack for the full price of a triple-A title.
March 2019 - There will be another chance that we’ll get the Earth’s Fury (Grosh-Nak) weapon again, but most people say that it will not be present, instead, we will get the other variant of the weapon, and the $50 Bundle pack will feature the one that you normally get just by playing the game.
In any case, if this really happens and I don’t get a chance of getting a missed weapon for $5, I’ll pretty much quit the game. It’s not because I hate it, but just because of pure annoyance and helplessness.
The other reason is that I want to have full or complete weapon collection someday, but without waiting years to get it. $50 Bundle packs are also not an option for me. That’s not the only issue. Duplicate Mythic troops are another, but I won’t discuss this here.
I hope that @Cyrup or @Kafka will actually keep their promise and fix this issue in the upcoming update - 4.3. If they don’t plan to actually rectify this situation, I think that this is a HUGE missed opportunity here. This could be their source of income, even if it’s just a $5 for every weapon, but just imagine how many people really want to get them. A LOT!
Sadly, most of them never get a chance to do so.
They’ll either got tired of waiting or just give up on the game because of it.
I’ll post a new suggestion on how to solve this problem.
