Firstly I’ll state that this won’t affect me as I am off pulls until I see a massive improvement in the game on Scopely’s end. So I have no ulterior motive here.
Looking at red velvet cakes and 6star promos, you seem to have got the logic and timing all mixed up. If somebody already has the toons but doesn’t have the red velvet cakes, all they can do is pull on the wheel of a toon they already have to get those red velvet cakes, and whilst some might, many will not.
This is because you run the red velvet bonus collection at exactly the same time as the toons that unlock it. Common sense and logic would dictate that you would do better and earn more by staggering it.
For example, say week 10 is Gov and Raven in the wheel, then the collection return for these toons should be week 11, and week 11 wheel could be say Doc and Mia. This means that players who have the toons in week 11 but not the velvet cakes, would be more willing to pull on a wheel of characters they don’t have to get the velvet cakes they need. Players who have Gov already, won’t be as likely pull on a Gov wheel to get the velvet cakes they need for the collection return.
Something to mull over maybe. Think it would be win-win all round.
Albeit currently there is also the Sheldon wheel to pull on, but that is not always the case. And nobody wants Sheldon anyway.
