Today I was excited to see that todays daily pack was offering ice and fire shards. These are great for merging into towers or even building additional hunter attack firepower. (Ice)
Quick Resource Check
- 708,000 shards to build a complete shard tower
- 145 shards to go from L1 to L2
- 30,000 shards to go from L144 to L145
So what does the special daily pack offer I hear you ask?
This pack you can only buy it once. And you can only buy it today.
Yes 30. Thirty. I’m not missing 3 zeroes on the end.
I would need to buy 5 of these packs to go from L1 tower to L2 tower ! ( but its capped at 1 pack purchase)
I would need to buy 1,000 packs to build 1 max level.
And I would need 23,000 packs to build 1 complete tower. $66,000.
Who is this pack for? Joe Bloggs who just started the game can’t use 30 shards when he needs 145 to get to a level 2 tower.
A veteran has no use for 30 shards when they need hundreds of thousands.
I think its important that the economy team understand game basics. If you make packs that have quantities that people can use then you will get sales.
Even if someone likes the dollar value per shard of this pack its not actually useable by anyone in this game.
This pack is a wasted opportunity for PG to make some money. I would actually buy a shard pack if it had useable quantities.
100,000 of fire and 100,000 ice shards in a pack for $100 I’m interested.
30 of each shard for $2.69… hell no.
When the daily pack first came out it had some good offers. I liked the 40,000 ruby one and bought a few. But lately this pack has just been a pile of trash ;-(
As a player these items have zero value to me yet they are often core staples in the daily pack :
- XP potions
- food packs
- wood packs
