Plarium, every day more greedy 60% discount on revival? It was the main reason for my diamond purchase ... but it's not worth it anymore. In my country there is a saying that says: "Greed breaks the sack" ... Well my sack you have already broken it

60% is still better than 50%..


I'd be honest, I haven't revived in a week, just been building new troops :)

Hello, Commander! The percent of the discount is not constant. It can be changed from time to time.

10% difference from standard 50% revive. Not worth it at all. Greed tactic.

Hello, Commander! Discount is a benefit for players in the game. Even if the discount is 60% it's still better then nothing :)

Some time ago there was no such discount at all. Thus, try to build your own strategy and if you don't think this offer is not profitable, you can revive some troops which you need for battles.

You do not play the game. Listening to those who actually play your product may be a good idea.

You have your strategy and I have mine. 

I have not revived troops this week due to the greed of Plarium, therefore I have fewer troops, I destroy fewer troops and spend less on diamonds to buy troops or to revive them.


Who loses more?

Plarium's strategy, besides being greedy, is wrong. 

If I spend diamonds sooner, I'll have to buy them again sooner


It is striking to see how all the offers that favor players are disappearing: container of alliance. Rations in the mercenaries, IMPORTANT discounts (not crumbs) in reviving troops and in the purchases of troops or items ... etc

More of the same from the meanest cheapest company i have ever come across. Theyre cheaper and more stingy than car companies and insurance companies combined

I agree. Adding less and charging more is not a good business practice. People buy in bulk for discounts. It's a normal business practice. Offering alliance containers and having less opportunities to use thier purchases with great value (ie 75% revive) leads to purchasing less because there's no future value in it.

I study business and I know that most offers are terrible but one should provide better offers for frequent customers. Plarium doesn't even offer a rewards program. Other games I have played give you a bonus if you purchase more. They give you bonus materials everytime you buy $xx.xx amount. It should not just be for once a month purchases.

You want the people to always buy to keep buying. So offer better discounts. 85% of most businesses income are repeat customers. Make things unattractive and you lose your income. It's simple standard business practices that this company has obviously not learned or hired people with this knowledge to market their products.

Another game I play gives out rewards every week for simple server maintenance. Why can't Plarium do the same? It's not like you need to give out a lot. Just some diamonds or jets for being valued customers. Show that you appreciate your customers and give them value to the products they're buying and they'll keep buying.

I don't even know why I need to explain any of this. I should be paid a consulting fee for this information.

Hello, Commanders! Thank you all for your feedback and comments. Every week I gather reports from forums and groups and pass it to the team. Your comments will be passed as well. 

As for the discounts, as I said before percent can be changed. Maybe next time there will be launched 70% discount. Please follow the news!

Now they lock threads they do not like. I broke no forum rules or regulations for it to get closed. 

Definitely do not care what their players think or want. 

A few hundred players now know you shut down players who you do not like nor agree with.

60% is not enough for me to consider diamond revive. However it will make me try to preserve troops and fight less. Which will decrease the entertainment value this game gives me. The somewhat bad packs which has come out lately to the returning pack buyer has caused me to put a hold to pack buying.

There is no information that the revive has changed to 60% permanently, therefore next time it may be harder.. I have no information on this, however it does provide a time to reflect on strategy..
