Kabam is trying to drain our units.......AGAIN. Who is buying these?

Just to put this cost in perspective, for Valiants it would cost around $500 cash.

For Paragon it would cost around $750-$800 cash.

Bruh...

Who is buying this with these prices???

    No one is trying to drain your Units. If people want it, and I suspect at least some will, then they'll buy it. You're free to pass if you don't want it.
    Either way I don't see too many of either Items in the game. It's not going to come for 1000 Units.

    You were free to pass on Winter of Woe AbsMan too. But instead, you tried to play it. When you couldn't beat him, you came to the forum complaining about how overpowered and too difficult the content was. There was an issue and you felt the need to express your concerns about it on this platform so you could be heard. Others should be able to freely do the same without you trolling their posts with your unwarranted, tired response.

    AGAIN...you DID NOT have to play WOW. The same response you have here, is the same thinking you should have used for WOW.
    I'm sorry but that is just not the same. Abs Man was way overtuned which is why it's not the exact fight in the Gauntlet. They also compensated people for one of the objectives.

    This is a deal that the value of the items is far exceeded by the price of the deal. It's optional. Not buying won't do anything.
    It is the same logic. Again..they didn't have to play that content.

    They are most definitely trying to drain units before Spring Cleaning rolls in. Just wait and see the unit offers ;)

    For one, Spring Cleaning has historically not included unit offers, so it would at most be a unit drain for July 4th, in 3 months. Regardless, I feel like calling this a unit drain is a little disingenuous. Literally the only people that are going to buy this are those for whom 16k units is chump change, in which case there's no need to 'drain' their units, they'll have no qualms spending the equivalent of my monthly salary at the next offer

    It's optional. Glad they made it worse so people atleast do a initial run to become valiant.

    Wow, an end of act offer like every single offer at the end of an act or chapter of the story. Much surprise, such bamboozle. Literally is the same as act 7 offer which offered 50% of a r4 6*, except we get 50% of a r3 7*.

    It is the same logic. Again..they didn't have to play that content.
    The logic is different in the sense that there is a presumption that most of the people who play the game do so to actually try to play as much of the game as they can. However there is no similar presumption that most of the people who play the game do so to try to buy as many of the offers as possible.

    Content is optional and offers are optional, but they are not optional in the same way. The presumptive goal is to play as much of the game as possible given time and attention constraints, on the assumption that actually playing the game is both entertaining and the whole point. But most players goal is probably to also play the game while spending the least amount of money, and using in-game resources as efficiently as possible. Content that is too difficult for the playerbase as a whole is problematic, but offers too expensive for players to buy is completely ignorable.

    Also, there is a general principle for games like this that buying your way forward should always cost more than the intrinsic value of the resources to encourage actual game play - to value in-game accomplishment higher than spending. This principle cannot be symmetrical, because it is impossible to both value in-game accomplishment higher than spending and also value spending higher than in-game accomplishment.

    Free to play games are not about democratizing spending. They do the opposite. They try to find the highest prices for everything that will still support the game. That is not the design imperative of content difficulty. The idea is to extract as much as possible from those who can afford it, to allow for the maximum possible playerbase that doesn't have to spend anything. Content difficulty, on the other hand, has a very high incentive to be, for the most part, accessible (there are exceptions, of course, to properly support progression ladders).

    Would I buy this? Heck, no. But there will be someone out there who does. Perhaps it's someone who is desperate for the Domino or Shuri dupe and is doing everything they can to get it.

    From Kabam's point of view, even if they only sold one it will almost certainly be someone who spends $$$ and in some quantity. It's money coming in and licensing a property like Marvel ain't cheap.

    And don't forget the value of perception either. Throwing out a 'bad' offer can sometimes by implication make an average offer that follows it look better than average.

    For me, at that cost, it should have been a 7* basic pool selector and that would have sent so many more units Kabam's way, but there you go. It's sales and marketing, that's all.

    Kabam is just telling you to spend the difference of 8.6k units to explore Necropolis then buy the Valiant offer.
