Ik Ik the market economy is always changing and what you buy today will literally be ftp in a year more than likely (if not than it WILL be waaaaay cheaper). But so far this year many of the in between deals are just SO EASY to pass on. Whether the offers have potential to be 4* champs or they are for relics when we haven't had any new ones in months (I'm sitting on about 60 relic crystals). Or here where 1/8 of a potential dud of a titan crystal and half of a T3 alpha (which honestly once you are valiant just doesn't hit the same value feel) just doesn't feel anywhere near worth 70 dollars. I was a whale for years. I only recognize the holidays now. But every now and then I used to dip into the offers in between. I suppose we really are in the time of content rewards being king and that is awesome!! But whales will be whales I suppose. Somebody's gotta be buying these sig stone/shard packages but they just seem so so very bad and that's great! Trust. I wanted to buy the sig stone packages. But the piddly 7* shards added on to create 'value' turned me waaaaay off. Even at 3 more sig stone crystals I may have been tempted. But no thanks. (I used to be a sucker for sigs and still find it hard to skip on 30 6* levels for 10 bucks lol)

    Kabam throw these terrible offers out to make the special offers on jul 4th and cyber weekend seem like a bargain.

    That's friggin deep. Not quite gotcha advertising but definitely a mental thing to make us think the value of those items is super high. Ooooohhhjh what a GREAT marketing scheme. Holy moly. How did I not think of that, good job @kabam that's some tricky business tactics right there. Like a casino/superstore/tobacco shop all rolled into one. Walmarlborocaesarskabam

    I can never figure out if all the disagrees actually have an opinion (ie they think the deals are amazing) or they truly are just that bored hahahaha

    There's no great conspiracy. Not every Offer is made to appeal to every Player. Some things won't seem worth it to me. Not everyone will feel the same.

    I don't think it's a conspiracy @GroundedWisdom. It's a genuinely great marketing tactic. Similar to making something seem like a big secret to garner interest. Or how box market super stores charge 400% so when they put it on sale for half off it seems like a deal you just cant pass on. I just forgot about it. It legitimate. And it'd make a lot of sense because idk any fellow variants who thought that was a great deal. Just one who was exactly that much off from a titan and 2nd T4A. Content is still far better than the deal which is what we've all wanted! So happy head not tinfoil hat. And giving kudos where kudos is deserved!

    It cost me roughly 1250 units worth of items to speed run act 8.4 for 5k titan a full t4a and a slew of other items. So....content is king. That deal is a worse value for a valiant who hasn't explored act 8.4 than buying the deal. And it will make the 4th deals look that much better and tastier to the majority if not all of the mid range to low range spenders. 100% guaranteed. And the sales numbers on those holidays are definitely a big part of what they show their investors
