      Cool Crown Sale!

      HA! Got 'ya!

      Actually the truth is that we DO need another Crown sale now.

      Here is the deal, KI takes "extra" note of threads in this forum ESPECIALLY when it gets a LOT of views and responses.

      So take a moment out of your time and post a message to let them know we want and need another Crown Sale, and that they need to be more frequent.

      It's all up to you to make our voice heard in one singular loud call to action.

      I would also like to suggest each of you "tag" one member of the KI family to help bring attention to this cause.

      So to start, @Sparck, I "choose/tag" you!

      And @Sparck, thank you again for helping to make theplushie real!

      October is always crazy, I want Nightmare packs (and the new one coming out), the new bundle, Pirate member and the Ashes pack, two of those aren't for crowns so let's exclude them
      3 packs I want right now, 1 on sale, the other I think will go on sale, and the other not released. You see my problem? That's a lot of money to get crowns for 3 packs, and a crowns sale would greatly help.

      If that didn't convince you, this will
      KI please give us a crowns sale

      I also haven't been here long, so Sparck was the only person I knew lol

      I don't like it when people call things impossible, because it usually isn't.

      I agree, which is why I used it. If we are going to get another sale soon, we need to shock everyone into action as one voice in one spot.

      I hope you will re-post something and share how you feel about the need for more Crown sales and constant lack of them.

      Hugs!

      Re: Crown Sale!

      It's difficult to say whether or not Kingsisle would make more money through a sale. Sure players would be more likely to spend money on packs but the more packs the individual would purchase had there been a sale, the odds of them getting the items they want would be somewhat higher due to more packs being opened than they would if there wasn't a sale (so perhaps more crowns would be spent). But if Kingsisle notices that this is happening (players spending incredible amounts of crowns getting the Halloween items) regardless of the sale, then Kingsisle would be earning a lot more money than had there been a sale even if players could be buying fewer packs.

      But also saying, if there was a crowns sale, Kingsisle would get something like 10 dollars from my wallet. I'm not likely to buy crowns if there wasn't a crowns sale. If there was a crowns sale, it would be a reasonable expectation that Kingsisle would be receiving money from players who would not usually spend money on crowns like me.

      I agree with the OP, we need to see Classic Crown Sales return. It's just basic business strategy to encourage consumers to consume by putting things on sale. The fact that we're now on 2+ years without a single one of these Crown sales indicates one of two possibilities:



      • There are enough whales burning money on KI for them not to care, or


      • Marketing is dumb as


      personally I believe the latter is true



      Either way, these sale's popularity is no secret and I can guarantee you that they'd turn a profit. That said, "profit" is a bit imprecise since that implies the word's opposite, loss. And KingsIsle certainly won't be putting their revenue at risk by selling a baseless virtual currency that, when bought, will always make them money. Heck, we saw these sales monthly during 2017/18 so it's evident everyone was enjoying themselves.
      Simply put, Crown Sales are a win for everybody. Players will enjoy getting more bang for their buck and KingsIsle will unequivocally profit more than if we went without a sale.






      But with all of that said, even if KingsIsle were to come out with a Crown Sale tomorrow I would abstain from opening my wallet. Wizard and Pirate101 are chugging along on broken business models (PTP, not pay for the entire game) that have been injected with enough microtransactions to make EA blush. I just cannot in good conscience financially support a corporation that preys on children, the neurodivergent, and those struggling with gambling addictions.


      So yeah, that's my take on things. I'm for the return of Classic Crown Sales just so that Players aren't forced into buying things at full price, but I'd rather see fundamental change to make these games truly reflect their E10+ rating.



      Thanks to @Torpzun26 for bringing up how KingsIsle is ableist to me!

      Re: Crown Sale!

      While I agree that another crown sale would be nice, its not going to happen. I wish the sales would come back, but its not going to happen. I've stopped asking for this because its obvious that it is not going to happen. I thought there was a slight chance they come back after the company sale, but it appears the new practice will continue under new ownership. Players are continuing to buy crowns at regular price and until that slows down and/or stops the company is going to continue to hold off on any crown sales. My best guess is that we see one around Christmas, so save your money and get ready for that one. There's a new standard and I really think the community is just going to have to live with it. My response to it is that I'm buying far less crowns than I use to. You should decide how you will react to it, but at this point I think most of us are just.....
