I have spoken in other threads about voting with your wallet. When unhappy with a major change or the overall direction of the game you can complain or you can be demonstrative and no longer spend money on the game. I hadn’t spent any money in weeks other than re-upping my elite status because of several changes I was very unhappy with, most notably the value of the packages which was significantly reduced, and the decrease in payout of coins in order to “make it easier” for people who have less time to play somehow.
The devs fixed the most glaring problem with the coins issue… sort of… and recompensed the players for what we lost. That made me willing to spend again but the value of the event package was still not restored and I have very little need to buy the event package anymore anyhow so I was still not spending money. I was given a gift card for Father’s Day so I elected to purchase a Time Warp Package, the one with 15 chests and 5000 gems. Now looking at the content of the chests I got about 20,000 tokens and 65,000 coins… those were useful. I also got one blue card I needed, 14 I didn’t (that actually finished off my need for blue cards), and no white cards I needed (I don’t need any white cards), and 14 epic card I needed but mostly for cards I don’t play much, 1 epic card I already had at 17, and 2 legendary cards both needed. So for my $100 I got 5,000 gems, 65,000 coins, 20,000 tokens, 67 “needed” cards, and a lot of unneeded cards. Now with the new cost you would be asking me to spend the same $100 for 1,500 gems, half the amount of coins and tokens, and needed cards. This when I already wouldn’t spend the money for the cards as it is.
To spend money there has to be FAIR VALUE which is different for different players. But for me it’s certainly not that. This is why I made the suggestion in another thread that next seasons chests should be mostly filled with season 1 cards and skins, to give value to what you are asking us, the long term dedicated players who have gotten a lot of our cards to 17 (and probably already have the cards to max the rest if we had the coins) something for the money we spend. I never got a response from a developer in that thread as to what they think of that idea so my guess is they don’t want to do it.
So again we come to my original point of voting with your wallet. I don’t think the halved version of the seasons chest package is worth it (I am iffy on the normal one already and every time I get the cards to max out another unit it has less value), so I will not spend money on that.
