I bought a saph pack that was a special. $20 down to $10. When I was done my normal saph pack limit increased from a max of $50 to $99 max. So when I buy another special pack it will go up again to $210, then $350??? Kabam was different. Buy a special chest pack and the normal offers wouldn't increase. So every time I spend, the price goes up....and up...and up? If this continues I doubt I'll be spending for very long.

yup but you can get better deals by not spending for a few months otherwise the cost never goes down it always increases


you would think they would want people to continue to spend consistently by offering good deals on a regular basis but this is not the case


I would spend modestly if the deals were consistent but there are long periods of time I won't spend and now its to the point after over two years of playing I have no desire to spend on the game unless i get a really good deal for $10.00 or less

Welcome to Plarium. On Kabaam Prices were very cheap. I rememeber seeing a good offer with 4 western at less than 5$. 

Here you have to spent and keep your prices at a certain level. Once you buy at 9$ prices stay at above 45$, and will return to 9$ after 31 days. 

Just because something isn't a lie does not mean that it isn't deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.....Gedleyihlekisa: Oracle the postremogeniture

Yeah, once you spend the size of your offers increases and the discount % decreases.  It'll usually go back to the default deals if you don't spend for a month or two though.

I didn't spend the size of my offers. My max was $50 and I bought a $20 special that was $10. It increases no matter what I buy. Before the server move I was able to buy special offers $100/$50/$20 packs reduced by %50-%80 constantly when $100 normal pack were the max. It only increased if I bought the max normal offer.

If this is right, Plarium is guiding me to spend less or hope that I have a spending addiction. Great sales strategy

The discount offers just there for you to start spending, once you start spending, they have no reason to give you anymore special offers until you stop spending again. 


Where in other games, it might be looked at as customer loaylity when you spend and you get bonus's on further purchases. Not with Plarium. What you really want to ask yourself though, is "that" pixel on the screen really worth it? If it is, spend away, if not.. whatever.
