I remember when black pearls were in rider lines and now they’re replaced by crafting scrolls that most players find useless. And the only way you can get them is the base boost line which is largely a waste as mosy players will only get 2 weeks out of the full boost (if that) unless they skip the discount dragon.
1, change the base boost to be a much cheaper line akin to the egg token boost, same number of black pearls and base boost, but reduce the total price to match the egg boost and lower the other prizes. Move the key fragment to the Festive line to retain balance.
2, add pearls as an option to choose over scrolls in rider lines.
3, add a special 1 time purchase deal of 12k pearls for 19.99 to represent the pearls many of us should have gotten from riders the past few seasons AND fix your daily offers to actually be a goos value and include a focus on pearls for those with under-leveled perches.
Since the lauch of daily offers the most pearls I’ve ever seen is 1k and that was mixed in with an awful 99$ bundle that was largely useless crap.
I can’t speak for everyone else but the ridiculous pricing of your deals, the 5 week base boost change, addition of mythic gear, and artificial scarcity of pearls has my account down to 100% free to play, not even doing elite anymore. It’s digital inventory, it has very little “value” and you’re losing customers over these changes. Between these problems and the drama of nerfing a dragon on occasion has my faith in PG at an all time low, far too low to spend any money even though I do still enjoy the game… for now.
