    I personally think it’s absurd to continuously spend money on a mobile video game, when there are better things you could do with it. After all, anything that you buy is just a digital resource, and basically is free to generate for Kabam. Just wondering what you guys think.

    just curious if you pay rent. some would argue that's even more absurd, literally tossing money out the window for something you can't keep and can be booted from at the discretion of the owners, who just take your money and buy dumb stuff like Tony stark's briefcase and lunch at cheesecake factory the other day.

    on the other hand, when you're too cheap to outsource maintenance and you get a call at 3am about the toilet backing up from one of your tenants, ownership isn't the best either...

    Do you enjoy the game? Do you want it to be there in the future? If the answer to both questions is yes, then how is it absurd to support it? Free to Play is only possible if others spend.

    we need better deals or better items in the deals for what they are charging.
    some of the prices compared to what they give is absolutely nuts.
    yes to each their own but remember this is a DIGITAL GAME and when this game stops being supported you dont get anything to show so just remember when spending

    How do you figure that the digital resources are free to generate ? There is a business and employees behind this game, people work to create the content and their time isn't free, neither is the education needed to get to the point that they can make these things.

    I understand what you're saying about these things having no real material value but they are nowhere near being free to create. There is also overhead required to keep the game running, servers and workstations are not free.

    It's for this reason that I don't have any reservations about moderate spending. The developers have a proven track record and have kept the content fresh and up to date for 4 years now, and I know every month there will be new things added. If nobody spent on this game, it would have disappeared long ago. It's impossible to sustain a business without income.

    I am 100% FTP but I don't have an issue with it in the Gold 1-2 area. But when you go to platnium and master, AW becomes whale wars.

    Kabam's revenue numbers suggest otherwise. Remember that in a free to play game the object is not to force everyone to spend. It is to get those willing to spend to subsidize those unwilling or unable to spend, so that you end up with a larger player population that makes for a more attractive game overall.

    In fact, it is better for the game overall if the value of most deals frankly sucks. Because the more value that is in every cash deal, the greater the gap in the game between big spenders and little spenders, and between all spenders and the free to play players. The free to play players have to believe they aren't being completely left in the dust or you stop attracting new players.

    An ocean with no fish also has no whales.

    It’s entertainment - it is no different than spending money to watch a movie, going to an amusement park etc. You can’t compare it to purchasing material items for that isn’t the category it falls into.

    Now if you don’t enjoy the game and/or feel the need to spend more than you want to versus other entertainment than that’s your own personal choice.

    Also to say it is free for Kabam to generate that is a little misleading. They have employees designing Champions, brainstorming the next set of nodes etc. Yes units/potions etc have all been designed and have little/no incremental cost but those things fund their design/development teams.

    Without spending there is no game. At least not one without constant advertising popping up
