Jow people,

Im an lvl 30 player sinds 17 weeks in the game, I have almost 12 bilj influence.

At this level you find out very quickly how much money this game cost.

By example:  I bought last week an VIP upgrade package, get an new VIP level was the message in my screen, !  I bought for 100 euro this package and I received 600K VIP Points. At my lvl I need 3 milj points.... so I need to spend how much money to lvl up my VIP level? 

Sjaman upgrades, I bought yesterday an package for Einar charms, 20 euro for 75 charms, I need 900 charms... You can only buy them.


Hero double, 3 times an hero double cost me 20 euro. 

I can go on like this. This game , Palarium shame on you!!!  Youre game is robbery !

Well, it was your choice to pay to win. No one ever forced you to pay.

There are many players in this game who pay to have an advantage in the game.
That's completely unfair to those who decided to play on their own forces.
It's a bit like those people who pay politicians to get an advantage on public markets.
It costs them money to cheat, but the return on invest worth the risks or else they wouldn't do it.

Just read the FAQ : To the question «Why the prices go up with every purchase ?»
The answer indicates : «The pricing policy was carefully elaborated by our specialists.»
What do you think this means ? It means that Plarium pays people to design a pricing policy
based on psychology to make you addict and have you pay as much as possible on the game.
You fell for it ? Ooooh, So sad :'( May be next time you will have learnt something...

If you believe Plarium prices are too high in regards on what it yields. Stop paying
them and stop complaining, what else ... ?
Do you have the faintest idea, when you play on your own forces, what a pain in the ass it
can be to play against people who pay to win ?

For the Daily/weekly spender, the 19.99 pack is the best deal.  If you can wait, the 8 and 12 week specials are the best.  If you get to the 4.99 for 9.99....this is the best price point to stock up on double hero and builders.  You have to plan for what you want to accomplish.  I made a level 60 Wendla for about 100 USD on the 12 week pack.

100USD...

It's about twice the price one paid for a good old classic game like civilization, isn't it ?

Level 60 on just one megapack ? I want to see a proof because this is not true.

Have to agree with the first two posted  comments. 

#1 that the packs are expensive and  also 

#2  that we are not forced to buy them. 

You can play the game for free, but can never really progress very far in it  without spending some money, and certainly cannot compete with those that  have very deep pockets. 

As to BRB' s comment on  Turbomaster74's   boasting about L60 Wendla for $100..

that amount seems an awful  lot of money, and that's only for one of the Shaman, there's another 5 of them and what about their cost, and other "must have"  items .

 Even if the boast is  true there's no guarantee that some one else could do the same, especially if they never see such an offer.

I bought those 12w megapacks in which I got 500 charms, maybe he/she got more but I doubt you can get 2000 charms.

Turbomaster if you see this, please tell me what was the paid price of the pack, and it's initial price.

You know, Plarium's mother company is an Australian gambling machine manufacturer named Aristocrat Leisure Limited. What else would you expect from such guys than wanting your money ?

Damm, i must play this game in the wrong way... my usual target are these guys who use big credit card and not their brain...


They grow everything with money, buy packet with plenty of troop type... they usually specialise in melee/archer/horse/catapulte but forget spy who is my speciality... they have plenty of spy in town not supported by gear or research and are a easy target for me...


On the other hand, i have be zeroed a few time by smaller player who use all the tip and trick that they know... they are the dangerous one...


I have post enough screenshot of my victory against big one on these forum... but have never post screenshot of my few defeat, all from smaller that me, shame on me...


EDIT : i buy packet too but have never spend 100$ on a packet... sometime i buy the 99.99$ packet when on sale at 4.99$... work good for me and have plenty of fun with this game

Why 2000 though? Stage 6 shaman costs 900 charms. On 12w you get a megapack with 500 for 9.99 + vendla pack with 300 charms for 9.99, and the rest you buy with regular packs (15 charms for 9.99)  - 7x9.99. In total - $89.91

You just have to wait 12w for the pack to get maxed out offers and then catch the right combination.

That's still a lot of money ,even if you get those offers  don't forget about how much Shaman levels 1 - 5 cost  before you even get the chance to go for level 6

Yes the man said 100$ to get stage 6, not stage 5 to 6. That would be much closer to the 2000 charms and somewhere close to 1000$ or wait 24w.

Hello all,

First off all:

No i dont have to buy anything

No i dont have to play this game

No you dont have to read and reply

So, this said , i have a few remarks on the reply's


One of the issues I mention is, how higher the level, how more the game cost.

So, now this intelligent bank system. When I buy only packages of 20 euro, i dont get other offers to see, no offer of 4,99 etc etc

Palarium comment: We assure you that the pricing policy in the game is constantly analyzed by our specialists

Mega packs, I know they exist but in 1 year time I saw them 1 or 2 times passing by

My clanmembers upgraded there sjaman within a few days to the max but i didn't see any offers passing by to upgrade my sjaman at all for weeks.

Upgrading a sjaman for 100 euro is BS, from stage 1 till stage 6 you need at least 300 euro and im talking about 1 sjaman upgrading.

Intelligent bank system, yeah but not for me, I paid already a lot off money in this game but the bank doesn't know this, it seams.

To close this topic , at least for myself, I don't spend 1 euro any more in this rich kid game, a game where the big spender is king, is not a game but an intelligent bank system.

Thx for joining the discussion.

Hi,

I had wait 8 weeks to get offer what the name offers is worth.

Than I buy a 10EUR and a 5 EUR offer. The next day the offers are go much worse.

And from day to day more worse.

e.x. gold offer 9,99EUR for 6.500gold plus 950.000 gold. THAT IS A JOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The best offer what I see was for 4,99EUR 4million gold!

ok against at the end of the offer that i get for 9,99EUR 3.000gold is it better :)

WHO IS  TO PAY THE GOLD OFFERS AT THE END???????????????????????????????

No one should ever buy those gold offers all the way down. Wait 8/12 weeks depending on your patience, and on ONE DAY buy ALL packs, because if you buy just one next day they will reset to normal no megapacks anymore

The smart and non rich players realize that this game is an investment but if you remain patient and spend wisely for example spending 50-60 bucks on uber packs once every 2-3 months(mega pack resets in 2 months and uber pack resets in about 3 months) you will be able to setup a relatively strong account in about a year with around 500 bucks spent. Only way to go up against the top players is to spend a lot yes, but this isn't the only freemium game that people spend thousands of dollars on so don't feel like your being robbed. In regards to the poor service, frequent game server downtime, lack of game aspects(such as trading gems and materials between clan members), and money milking strategies I would recommend patience with a side of ignorance since it takes forever for this game to add new aspects which have been around in other games for a long time. The server downtime has improved we don't get locked out as often as before, just cross your fingers and hope this game does well and keeps improving since it is fun to play.

Hahaha, nice joke... Well maybe not, in fact. If the system is really designed to make players who prefer buying offers and those who do not use the Bank equal, then you should replace the designers, because they really did a poor job here.

By the way, management theories tell us that the goal of any company is to maximize profit and I'm quite convinced that motivating player to spend money by giving an advantage to those who pay and putting them in competition while giving them incentives to spend is the best way to make a money siphon game.

So I have no doubt that the pricing policy in the game is constantly analyzed by your specialists, but in order to maximize profit. Not in order to make non buying strategies equal to buying strategies.
