Kinda the point right there. Gold is the bottle-neck of the game. not guild influence or team level. A bit of TL exp or guild influence is not what I’m looking for. When I buy gold, Im looking for gold, and 10diamond for 36k gold, in the long run, is a bad trade.
I have for several times get diamond-for-chips offers that are really good, but couldn’t buy them before they expired because I lacked just 100-200 diamonds (2 weeks worth of the gold daily quest). On the other hand, if I lack some gold, I just wait 1 day to get some more. The diamond-for-stuff trades are always better than gold-for-stuff trade. That’s why the 10d-for-36kgold is just bad math.
The whales can spend their diamonds on whatever they feel like, but PB shouldn’t design the game in a way that encourages players to do bad trades.
It’s okay to encourage players to buy Stamina daily, even though they can get better deals, because 1-2 stamina can be converted to even more TL exp AND badges or 4-5 chips. Gold, on the other hand, doesn’t really get converted to anything. 36k can’t even cover 1 skill upgrade. So yea, bad math.
