Buy character you want
So far I haven’t spent any money on this game. I would be willing to pay for the game outright, if nothing else, as a nod to the developer’s hard work. The main thing stopping me is conflict of mindset. I’m the kind of person who tends to simply buy things. The concept of buying a chance to get something runs counter to my mind set. I was thinking how to bridge the gap. I have 2 ideas. $5 for a badge that can be used when a 5 star or higher crystal is opened. The badge lets you select the character you want. ...or, $50, and the selection is permanent. Basically, at that point, you bought the game, and all content is available. It gets you nothing in game, really. You still have to grind to get crystals, shards, etc. It just lets you pick what you want each time. For game purchase, it should work on 4 star and up. My rationale is, the menu for opening every 2 star would get cumbersome for those that horde. It would even give a slight edge to power gamers who want to use the duplication effect of opening same one twice. Hey. They paid $50 after all.
