I am not opposed to spending. I am/was in fact a pretty regular spender. I would not consider myself a whale, but again I am P13 and a day one player. I still have my google receipt from the very first $4.99 starter offer I saw. I am not opposed to people spending or even myself spending, I am vehemently opposed to these types of blatant offers designed around outrageous RNG.
Had this box offered a baseline of say 1200 nuggets or 1600 nuggets and a top tier of 10k I could see maybe the price being $49.99. Although not great value (as if anything pixel related is) at least you would get a decent amount of trainers, a (useless) robot, some food, and 2 boxes with at least bottom tier 6* gear…and a shot at some decent amounts of nuggets. If you are going to use RNG at least make the bottom tier remotely decent.
These boxes have the very real possibility and probability of you getting 630 nuggets for $49.99 and that is a travesty.
