Still cheaper than what I was paying for gas when I played Pokemon Go........
If you truly followed realty you'd see that that just ain't true. I';ve played Magic OnLine for almost two decades. Every time WotC raised prices income went up. Other online games? Have you ever seen any OL game raise prices and lose money except after their player base had started eroding?If you truly understood economics, you would understand that your price increases will LOWER your overall income.
If you had any practical business experience you'd realize there is. Every time someone uses a debit or credit card there is a transaction fee. Someone pays that fee, whether it's you, your vendor, your bank, or your vendor's bank. (That's not true. It's always you, you just don't inderstand it.)Remember, these are virtual goods that have NO actual variable cost.
Then improve it. Actually I'm getting bored with it, but don't make it worse.Why not remove all things you do not want, so you can win what you want?
I did but that won't change or help, awards are based on are placed on the servers everyday.
Good thinking. What we need is push accounts made way easier.
Then maybe all swap threads should be banned, because it's the same, right? Pushing another's G/B?
Who's problem is that?
Who said it was a problem?
And the costs they make to keep this ganme up for everyone and improve it are virtual as well?
My guess is they were looking to keep the same price tag as if people are already buying at that price then people can afford those prices.is it getting tougher to mine the diamonds? if ur looking to make more money, why not increase the amount of diamonds in the package and then raise price...
Packages change after the event, so they could still use that as an excuse.I predict many of the 'boycotts' will come to an end during the Archaeology Event. Too many diamond dependent players who won't get a level 10 World's Fair any other way. They'll justify it by going for the diamond + scroll packages, but buy they will. I also don't see many diamond players shutting down cities they've built having already invested hundreds or even thousands of dollars into them. A few transactions later, they'll forget why they were even upset.
Nice rant. You do realize you can play this game for free, right? So, every $$$$ you've invested in this game, you've done so voluntarily. You initiated and consummated every transaction completely on your own. It's not Inno's fault you have no regular income, and that is no basis to begrudge the hard working employees, management, and owners of InnoGames a regular income and occasional raises.for the amount of time and $$$$ invested in this game come on is the game losing money or does everyone want a raise .. I HBAVE NO regular INCOME,__
what are you currently spending on ingame? If it's not city diamond expansions or additional event buildings (the first full building of each event should be free) you should be able to complete the task for free although the option to speed things up via diamonds is therefor the amount of time and $$$$ invested in this game, come on is the game losing money or does everyone want a raise .. I HBAVE NO regular INCOME
This makes absolutely no sense. Getting the same amount of Diamonds but having to pay more Diamonds to buy the same thing in-game works out to exactly the same thing as getting fewer Diamonds to begin with. But it would also impact the players who earn their Diamonds in-game instead of buying them AND the players buying the large Diamond packages. Now, instead of only ticking off low level Diamond buyers, you've ticked off EVERY SINGLE PLAYER in the game. And that's better? For who?What you should have done (in my opinion) is reduce the game benefits given. When it comes to receiving less diamonds to get the same benefits as before is worse than receiving less benefits but being able to get the same amount of diamonds.
It sounds like you are having difficulty controlling your spending in this game if you are spending more than you can afford. I encourage your considering leaving the game, as I hate to see anybody get into a fix over what is essentially luxury spending.I for one will not be interested in receiving less Diamonds. As it is, I am spending more than I can afford to play the game and receiving less that what I have getting for the past year will make me less interested in continuing to play the game.

Consider that I will now be playing less and may even decide to leave the game.
