So, July 4th offers are out. YAY!!!! 6* Nexus CRYSTALS!!! Loads of t5 and 6*sigs!!!
But wait a minute... I'm a free-to-play guy. And I only get ONE Nexus? That too going 18K units deep.. The maths here is messed up,

For Spenders
6* Nexus = Odin = 3k units = 100$

For Free-to-play
6* Nexus = 18K units = 6 ODINS = 600$ ??...

People can buy 300$ worth of units and get THREE 6* Nexus crystals..
And Free-to-play players can buy 1 NEXUS CRYSTAL... ONLY ONE!!! for 600$ worth of units and guess what, there is no option to get the second one any way..Forget 3rd completely.

Way to go kabam!!! Atleast could've made the deals a little more comparable..

    I opened 3 nexus crystals and got mostly trash in every one. I actually picked Iron Fist from one of them, the other two choices were Kamala and Falcon (I already had Falcon).

    The other two champs I got from the nexus crystals were Invisible Woman and Mysterio, but I can’t see myself ranking them up.

    My best pulls were actually from basics. I snagged Aegon, Corvus and Longshot, along with Proxima and then trash.

    I was excited for Aegon, but then remembered I have absolutely no way to awaken him.

    So, for the whole thing, in terms of what I can use now, Corvus is the standout.

    The nexus crystals aren’t all that special, they’re just marginally better than basics, and you still have a good chance of pulling 3 trash champs.

    you picked if over Kamala? why? he has armor break. She has poison immunity, better damage, along with furies and some nice synergies with CMM

    Honestly as someone not spending I haven’t fallen back as much as I expected, mainly because the t5cc was so widely split, I agree the unit pack could have been more on the level of the cash offers in terms of value but it’s never been a f2p friendly day

    Free to play means just that, free to play. While the game is free, you have the option to spend cats to accelerate your progress. A lot of us who spend don't have the time or desire to grind arena or complete every single difficulty level of an event. I think they did a great job with the offers. Also, if they had made the unit deals closer to the level of the cash deals, people still would have found an issue because spenders would have still ended up with more items than F2P gamers.

    I'm F2P and I understand that spenders get more opportunities, that's the way this game has always been.
  • Thicco_ModeThicco_Mode Posts: 3,240 ★★★★★
    so on a day that has cash offers that are some of the biggest of the year, you're surprised that those who spend are going to get more rewards?
  • There is nothing wrong with that. People who spend money are always gunna get more than f2p and that is fine. That's part of spending and that's how games work. The deals they had today were all pretty good.
  • MauledMauled Posts: 1,279 ★★★★
    Why would they be equal? For 15k units an F2P player can get a huge amount of resources. If you so desire you too can pick up the unit packs but for the premium price of £500 (ish) you can buy a little boost, and it is a little boost, there’s no fully formed T5CC, no selector, just 6* shards which could yield you a Doom but could just as well give you Groot.

    I am more than happy that people are willing to dump £100s on these because it means that this game remains free for me.

    Lol. If you choose to deprive yourself and never, ever buy anything for any reason, even if it's a great value, you get what you get. The only one stopping you is you.

    That’s basic business.

    why would i pay for first class if i got the same experience in coach?

    economics tip: you rarely go wrong targeting the paying class. that's why every new condo build is for luxury and you practically need to blackmail to get "affordable" housing built.

    spenders pay for this game, and every other game, so it is what it is.

    Absolutely ridiculous OP. Literally zero to moan about in these offers but people still moaning.
    The sense of entitlement is unbearable.
  • ChriissRChriissR Posts: 313 ★★★
    FTP is never able to compete with P2P. Not in any game.

    They have to give advantage to P2P so they can continue to spend, or else we'll be watching 30 second ads every fight screen. Be glad that people spend thousands.

    I'm FTP.

    Bought 21,000 units worth of deals, because I'd been saving all year.

    I've got a lot more T5B, more T2A, a 5* Generic AG, a 6* Cosmic AG and 6* Mystic rank-up Gem all in the bank.

    My 6* pulls weren't great (Original CM and Mephisto), but I did get Tigra and Sentinel as useful 5*s.

    I'm happy with what I got, even if I can't use all of it right away (I'm not using that rank-up Gem on Mephisto!). But part of the reason I'm happy is that I'm not comparing what I got to anyone else.

    And personally I'd like to say Thanks, and best wishes! to the Spenders who actually pay for the game.

    It makes perfect sense. If you spend money you deserve more because you’re the ones keeping the game funded and alive. F2P players can grind all they want, they’re not keeping the game funded. There’s no ads in this game so deals is the only way they can make money off of the game. If you’re so mad about it, spend money!

    That's not really true. Without a health population of players the game dies. Having a thriving community is part of what keeps whales around and playing. Having grinders is what makes people spend $$ to buy ally items, arena refreshes, boosts, etc. Dont act like the f2p community isnt an important part of the game.

    Also remember that there are games that you buy for a flat fee that is less than an Odins that get regular updates for years and years, and are f2p once you buy the game - no one is holding a gun to kabam's head and forcing them to go F2P.

    Similarly, no one is forcing kabam to redo characters over and over (we really needed both cyclops/magnetos or the CA/IM clones/remakes!) Instead of making them skins available for a nice unit price (1k? 3k? They'd get sales and drain f2p units too that way...).

    If you're mad about f2p players wanting a better deal, be mad that Kabam went f2p instead of selling the game for a flat fee with cosmetic microtransactions.
