I have always been a mid-level spender. I’d probably do one to two 10 pulls a month and this yielded some good luck and some bad luck over the years. Only twice since the introduction of six stats have I paid outright for a 40 pull (blue michonne; unsuccessful, payback negan; successful). This varied luck has given me enough options to build viable teams that have been able to take down MOST defences, with some thought and practice. I’m P12 and have been playing the game for pretty much bang on three years.
It’s been very lucky that the changes to the premier wheel have pretty much coincided with the formation of the #playersunited movement. The odds were already pretty bad, but now they are actually so shocking it’s an insult. 0.6% chance of pulling the featured toon? You’d have to do 167 pulls! And that’s only when it’s not a NEW premier. Those, they don’t even release the odds for. No, you have to lay down £500 per week to collect the items to get this toon. That’s insane! I could go on holiday for that. Or save for 10 weeks and buy a new damn car. Regardless of what else I could do with the money, I simply cannot afford it.No. I am not tempted to spend in the slightest.
Scopely really need to review their business model. At the moment they are alienating 99.9% of their playerbase, simply because we can’t afford the product, not because we don’t want it. I’m guessing this is punishment for skullgate. And because Scopely has been giving out ‘free’ coins more frequently of late. Well, sooner or later those coins will be gone and no one will be buying more. There’s no point. There is nothing for mid level spenders now. It’s either a case of being the biggest, whaliest whale, or be F2P. And looking at the state of the newest legacy, the existence as a F2P going forward is bleak.
@GR.Scopely @JB.Scopely please take this seriously. If I remain F2P (which I will if I continue to be priced out the market) sooner or later I won’t be able to compete at the level I have been used to for a long time. Then I will simply quit. And there are many others like me.
