I’m not sure there is, this is beginning to look like a company suicide attempt. Think about it a bit, what’s their key selling point for the Elite+ Pass? This is what you currently get:
- A few extra rewards past the end of the regular reward track.
- A few extra stars.
- Exclusive early access to campaign related content (weapons, troops, cosmetics).
I’d argue that the first two items are considered mostly irrelevant by players. The extra rewards aren’t even remotely worth the cost, even based on a very generous “gem value” calculation. The extra stars don’t allow you to take any shortcuts, you still need to complete all tasks to collect all the rewards available, including the non-regular ones. Which leaves early access as the key incentive to reel in players willing to spend money.
As it currently stands, IP2 isn’t only not honoring the early access deal, they even fail to acknowledge that delivery is way past due. This is a bit like buying an expensive ticket for an exclusive preview screening of the next Star Wars movie, arriving at the theater to find the doors closed without any explanation given, then having to wait in line for the regular viewing to start to be let in with everybody else. It doesn’t matter how much the movie itself might suck, I definitely wouldn’t buy any ticket, whether expensive or regular, from that theater again. I’m probably not the only one who feels that way.
