Just pulled 39 Ice cream cones with my daily SC pull (auto updated before I remembered to cancel, a couple of weeks ago).
Checked out the chances of Ice cream cones and it’s a 10% chance of them dropping.
Now here is my issue - I am never going to collect 2k ice cream cones as I’m not going to do big pulls due to #PU (yes I know - SC membership is technically not full #PU) and also due to the rediculous item collection for new toons policy that has come into play recently.
That means 10% of my pulls have become worthless since we can’t use these for anything else. This applies to all players who are not uber whales. You are disadvantaging casual and middle spenders (also F2P who pull with league coins) by devaluing SC and normal pulls in general by 10%. Considering your already stupidly low odds, that is a huge % drop. The same goes for plushes and those who already have Romanov/those who already have 20k plushes/those who don’t give 2 figs about owning him since he’s so dire.
Now tbf, S Class is going to destroy the game anyway, but even if you didn’t release S Class, this item collection format will destroy it just as easily. The majority of your spenders are not uber whales, and a huge amount won’t spend until you address #PU issues, and stop this rediculous new format of claiming toons from 1000’s of items. Although I suppose even then many still won’t with the advent of S Class and the mega boosts you’ve given them.
You are losing money because of these things
