Deals from the Bank

Several months after I started playing Throne: Kingdom at War, the Bank was offering me deals priced at $4.99. I made the decision then to buy a few of those deals. However, since buying them, I am now only being offered deals that are priced at $19.99. I bought those deals at $4.99 over 3 months ago. The only instance I have seen since then of a $4.99 deal was when it was offered as a "Lucrative" deal, and the deal offered as lucrative was not as good as the original deals that were offered, which I bought.


Question. Will the deals ever return to the price range of $4.99, or, am I stuck from now on with deals which are only $19.99?

You have bought several for 5$ and it sounds you're not opposed to buying several more.

Is buying 1 20$ offer 4 times less often than 4 offers of 5$ that much of a stretch?


And, on paper, you're getting a better gold-worth per $ for those (1,500=100% for 5$, 3,000=100% for 10$, 6,500=100% for 20$, etc.).

It's only on paper though, because the offers are laced with gold-worth inflating elements, or items that their gold-worth set by the game is so inflated that's it's simply a mistake to use gold to buy them (rss, troops and others), or items you really don't wanna buy for gold almost no matter what their gold price is (T5 troops mainly).

To know which deal is good you'll need to check the deal's items themselves and other parameters, but definitely do not buy gold-only offers.

"Is buying 1 20$ offer 4 times less often than 4 offers of 5$ that much of a stretch?"


Why should someone who plays the game, that is willing to spend money, be placed in such a situation to begin with? Isn't that rather unfair? To present a player with deals for $4.99, and, after they buy several deals at $4.99, they are then subjected to deals that are only $19.99? Is the price hike really necessary?


"To know which deal is good you'll need to check the deal's items themselves and other parameters, but definitely do not buy gold-only offers."


Not to buy deals that are only gold-only is rightfully your own opinion. But, it makes more sense to buy a deal with gold for the purposes to have the gold to buy Relocations, and to buy shields when needed. Also, having the gold will allow a player to purchase a study or a building construction, saving them the time it would take for such a study or build to be completed.

Hi there! Now there are many ways to get free gold to be shielded, I think. Of course, not millions but enough to play. One of the most important things in packs is Heroe's Stamina.
