    Cyber Monday deals are unit based and I saved units for them, so yes.

    They're not all units based. Many of the deals involve buying the units deals and then using said units to buy the others.

    recently i spent quite a lot for my liking and i spent on drdoom early crystals as well and got shat on hard and every 6* i opened this year has been a trash(diablo,foster,redskul,covilwarrior) they r only used for arena so yeh solid reason to not spend a single penny anymore on game for a while.

    As the other guy stated. Its setup like the 4th of july was. You have to buy something for the unit offer to kick up. Honestly I was looking to spend 2 odens worth, I've been saving up. However with these issues they are having that dont seem to have a timeframe for their resolution, I wont be spending any more money on this game. I gave the weekend to sort it out and expected at least an update today and still nothing. Not to mention the fact that they are putting out offers to buy things while their game is buggy is just greedy. I get that these offers are setup weeks even months in advance, but with the issues they are having they should have pulled the offers until things were fixed. Not to mention that they are taking their time to figure out a good compensation, it's not hard Kabam. Give your customer base a lot of stuff and apologize for the f up. That simple. That's how you'll keep my business. I'm loyal to those who are loyal to me. There are 1,000's of mobile games, I don't have to play this one.

    I won't be.

    The rng is stacked against the player.

    One look at my list of champs showing every 2 star duped multiple times tells me to keep my wallet closed.

    Even if there was no any bugs, my luck is terrible. I haven't been out of rank up resources for any champ I have for almost 2 years now. The only thing I might consider is champ of my choice as 5* or 6*, but it's not gonna happen

    Bought 10 sunspot featured rook crystals yesterday with units and got 3 and 4 stars. Spent $200 more after that on the same crystals. Out of 30, pulled 1 5*.

    I will purchase the unit deals as I have already saved enough for that, as long as the are better than last year. But the cash deals will have to be absolutely phenomenal to get me to purchase them this time.

    Last Cyber Monday there were two separate sets of deals. There were unit offers which were tiered, each one unlocking the next one; 1000, 4000, and 10000 units for each offer. And there were cash deals that basically added a bunch of bonus items into the regular unit packs. You could buy the cash-for-units packages and then use the units to buy the unit-specific offers, but they were not linked in any way.

    Going to have to buy the deals to pay for all the overtime to fix the bugs.

    In all seriousness though they are working hard to fix the issues and have already stated that they are going to focus on correct compensation for those of us affected. This wasn't a decision Kabam made like the no four stars in Act 6 or the freaking gates, this was a series of bugs that screwed over the people working on the games as much as those of us playing it.

    As long as the deals are good and the keep working hard on compensation and fixing the bugs I see no reason not to pick some of them up.

    I'd only buy unit based deals which I saved up free to play.

    I'm mentally prepared to, but it will depend largely on what the offers are. I'm frankly hoping that they're tiered offers based on title again, cause frankly, I'm not interested in new 5* champs anymore unless I can pick a specific champ. Same goes for 5* awakening gems.

    So 6* shards, obscene amounts of rank-up material, or 6* awakening gems are all I'd be interested in.

    Yes it is getting to the point that investing in 5* champs, other than a select few, is much less appealing

    Well, spenders will spend and that is a fact. I have started to refuse on a few deals now. However I really look forward to the Monday deals to have something extremely enticing.

    I expect them to be too good to pass up if you dont mind spending on the game....

    I agree here, but even the 6* are not really appealing. There were a lot of 6* shards in the July 4th offers. Netted me a rocket and a BPCW. If I see value, I would buy. I've saved units since July 4th, so the unit offers would only cost me what I already have save.

    I do find the "given the state of the game" titles funny. Nothing that has happened in the last week will prevent people from spending on the game. If 12.0 didn't kill this game, then the bug fest over the last week won't either. Beside, Kabam will make it right with the players. People will always complain that whatever compensation is on the horizon is not enough, but Kabam knows was bad for the game and won't want to lose players over a buggy release.

    I agree with your comments regarding the state of the game as well. They're funny, cause while certainly impactful, they weren't that detrimental. Frankly, if you're in a laid back alliance like me, it wasn't that impactful at all.

    Personally, I think Kabam handled this instance far better than they have previously by giving frequent updates to the status of those issues. It's also the first time I can remember in quite a while that the game had been down unexpectedly for that length of time. All that said, if anything, I could see a rational argument for the game being in a better state than it has been in the past.

    War still is not fixed and numerous logical stop gaps that have been suggested have been ignored.

    Consider that your purchases validate and encourage what they're doing. Think back to the recent months of what they've done that would merit YOUR money. Don't be blinded by recency bias with the fantastic 4 events for which they had to adjust the awards because we know why. The silent and loud nerfs for which they never had issues with until people learned to use champs like she hulk correctly. I wouldn't say that spending money invalidates your voice of criticisms but it certainly won't force them to change their way of thinking and communicating to us.

    counterpoint: kabam and every other mobile developer are all in on the user that spends 3.5 hrs and more daily interfacing with the game, as these users tend to spend more and are. Every facet of the game that forces more screen time (aq, war, arenas) was affected, and still is, and unlike v12 where they could roll back to a degree, this time around this game is officially the secondary priority, behind the new game. this type of disaster hit the demo they least want to disrupt, and it's hard to argue it won't happen again, given the vague statements of "still looking into it."
