Hello, so i have a bunch of chest keys (31 legendary and 11 rare Northman keys and 8 rare Orcish keys)  that i will most likely never be able to spend in this lifetime and yet i have paid for them when i bough offers of which they have taken a significant chunk of each time so needless to say i would like to have my moneys worth. I'm sure that there are others like me out there that are somewhat annoyed by this and so i have an idea, a KEY CONVERTER. You put in what kind of key and the amount of keys that you'd like to convert and it shows you what kind of key and how many you could convert them into. For example if i would put in all 31 Legendary Northman keys i could chose for the following options:

LEGENDARY Dragon keys - 4.1, Elfish keys - 5.3, or Orcish keys - 8.6 

EPIC Dragon keys - 5.4, Elfish keys - 8.1, or Orcish keys - 12.4

RARE Dragon keys - 12.9, Elfish keys - 20.6, or Orcish keys - 38.75

Now obviously we can't get half a key or 3/4 of a key or whatever but i would be willing to round it down to an even number of 4, 5, 8, 12, 20, 38 and so on. 

If this sounds like something that you'd like to see in this game then comment, like, and/or let Plarium know about it and hopefully Plarium will take notice and we'll see it soon enough. 

Thank you for your time.

Thumbs up maybe they can also covert the treasure chest to keys also :) Like maybe 100 chest for 1 key. God knows how many chests I have discarded since I started playing this game.

you can't have a 100 chest even if you try, but i get the idea. I don't like it however, trading a chest for a chest is one thing but trading a chest for a key something different and the step from that to wanting to trade runes for keys or units for rubies isn't that far and in my opinion that's wanting to much, and then there's that saying about the fish or the snake or whatever that wanted to much and instead didn't get anything, small steps is the key ;)  (a little unintended wordplay)  but please don't be deterred from posting your ideas about my "key converter" idea.

Sounds like a good idea 

And what do you think about chests? Will it be possible to apply the same system to the chests?

well yes trading chests for chests sounds reasonable, but since i don't have ny prices on those figuring out the trade ratio to give an example on how that would look is somewhat difficult :)

I got you :) 

Interesting... Of course, I can't guarantee anything, but I like your idea.

Hi I have a few alternative suggestions to this issue:


- increase the drop rate of keys when doing BGs, right now the drop rate of Chests is a good 20-1 to keys. I know you want to make us spend but the cost of keys is not proportional to what you end up getting, aka a few shards, as in most cases you keep getting the same stuff that you dont need. So paying for a key only to get something you already have is extremely frustrating, and hence why I have stopped buying keys.


- consider reducing the cost of the keys to an amount that is proportional to what you actually get, especially when considering that you can not control what is in the chest.

 

- when you do get a key the chances of items in the chests needs to be skewed to favor items that you currently do not have equipped. I keep getting the same stuff I already have or if that cant be done maybe give a choice of items you can pick from, say from 3 items?


- please mix up the reward keys and keys offered in recharge bonuses, as that is the biggest issue here as well


Cheers

Thank you for your suggestions. 

Unfortunately, our developers won't reduce the cost of Keys, or increase their drop rate, or make any manipulations with Item drop (which is random). 

But could you please give me more details about mixing the keys? With screenshots maybe?
