It’s like you all willfully refuse to accept how F2P games work or to do basic math. Just to be clear:
- The drop rate on a Mythic in a VIP Chest is 1/100.
- VIP Chests cost 2,250 for 50 or 45 gems/chest.
- 45 gems times 100 chests equals 4,500 gems.
- At $100, gems are 15 for $1.
- 4,500 divided by 15 equals $300.
That’s assuming you get one at random per the current system. So they’re already giving you a card worth $300, plus a TON of other stuff that’s value is probably a hundred plus more, for $50. The Mythic is actually icing on the cake as the rest of the bundle is clearly worth far more than $50. That’s patently true based on the 6x6 arcane bundles they sell for $35. It’s super generous as-is.
If they’re giving away a mythic you don’t already own then the cost is some multiple of that (because targeting a specific mythic is far more valuable than one at random). I can’t be bothered to do the math, but getting to select a specific mythic, as the extreme case, is currently worth something like four thousand dollars ($600 times a 1 in 12 chance of the mythic you want). Obviously if it’s one you don’t own at random then it’s somewhere in between $300 and $4,000 based on how many you don’t own. Bear in mind that this cost goes up each month as they release more and your odds of getting a specific one become worse. And, again, the worst part of all is that you can be guaranteed to get the one you don’t own each month as it’s released if you own all the rest.
I can understand why you want them to be even more generous – who doesn’t?! – but that doesn’t mean your request is reasonable. You’re talking about spending $50 for something that’s valued at like $1000. It simply makes no sense.
You’d be much better served suggesting things that you would buy that don’t wreck their economy.
