      Re: Crown Sale!

      I have a somewhat different point of view on this whole Crowns sale issue.

      First, I think those of us that have been long time players grew accustomed to the regular Crown sales and periodic super Crown sales. Essentially, we came to view the regular Crown sale price as the norm and the super Crown price as a sweetener. The actual regular published prices were something that one would do only as a last resort. Having become addicted to that , we are now suffering a painful withdrawal.

      Second, I don't think that lowering the exchange rate between real currency (dollars, euros, franc, ...) and virtual currency (Crowns) guarantees a general increase in the level of consumption of virtual products. Sales often generate short term cash flow improvements, but that is not the same as profitability. The only thing that is certain is that consumption is more affordable for the player.

      Third, we don't see KI's financial statements, so we don't know how current sales revenue compare to historical sales revenue. I think the recent pattern of less frequent regular Crown sales and absence/elimination of the super Crowns sale likely means that they've concluded that is the more profitable approach over the longer term. It really really does not matter if that is the result of the spending habits a few "whales" or the aggregation of the masses.

      Finally, we all have free choice with respect to spending on the game. It's an individual decision about whether particular purchases at a certain price is of value to them. That's part of the essence of a market economy.

      So, while I too would love to be able to scarf up some bargain-basement priced Crowns, the current situation isn't raising my blood pressure. As with all things in life, we can only live in the moment and deal with what is before us.

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.
      Bringing up how trash their packs are, I'm gonna use the Karamelle pack as an example
      Karamelle is a world
      The Karamelle pack, is a pack (not a good one, but still a pack)
      The Karamelle pack items, don't drop from Karamelle
      The HOUSING ITEMS from the pack DON'T DROP FROM KARAMELLE, THE WORLD THE PACK IS BASED ON.

      Housing items, at least, should NEVER be limited to a pack, and every single one should be changed to drop from bosses in their world OR be craftable with reagents you can find in the world, and not pack only reagents

      The Halloween items drop from the Halloween towers and Baron Mordecia, solved
      Christmas items drop from Krampus, and maybe you can make more Christmas bosses
      Karamelle items drop from Karamelle
      Ok you get the point
      I get the gear, the gear is special, but the housing items are only limited to packs because of greed
      I love to house, but I've tried it before, and I am no longer going to open packs for housing items if all I want are housing items

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

      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!
      I've been tagged! What do I do, what's happening?

      Noted on your suggestion, I'll let the team know the interest is building.

      About the plushie, that's all Kayly!

      Cool Re: Crown Sale!

      **Bump**

      Based on all the new sales (As predicted in the beginning of this thread) I thought it was appropriate to bring this back to the forefront.

      It's all up to you all to make your voices heard. @Sparck has already said he will bring it to the the attention of KI, so now we just need to show them how serious we are.

      Re: Crown Sale!

      I know a Crown sale is unlikely but we can hope KI gives us a Treat this Halloween.
      I would usually spend A LOT on Halloween Packs between myself , my son and my grandson. OK mostly me and my grandson..... OK mostly me (now that he got his bone dragon).... Every year there's one mount that eludes me that I spend way too much trying to get. First it was the Cloudstrider Pegasus, took me 2 years to finally get it. Then it was the Midnight Owl , got that one last year, now it's any one of the Ghost mounts from the Pirate Nightmare Pack. I would love to get one but without a sale I just can't see buying enough crowns to do it. Oh well maybe next year I'll get lucky. ::fingers crossed::
      The world is full of magic.
      You just have to believe in it.

      Please...HELP

      They gave us a crown's sale...sort of. AluraMist posted it for those of us who don't get KI's emails. It was a code for 25% off all the items in your cart (Thankfulsavings was the code, expired 11/30)

      It brought the current "best value" 80,000 crowns for $100 down to just a smidge (small smidge after all) over 1,000 crowns per dollar, the only way I'll buy crowns (except, see below). I used to buy multiples of the 90,000 crowns for $80 (1,125 crowns per dollar), but that was yesterday...

      Hey, Matthew, Joel, Remco, penny-wise, crown foolish? What I did with my code was add up all my crowns leftover from whatever, from the $100 I dropped on Extra Life, from getting tips and questions read on KI Live and then subtracted out 13,800 x 4 for Lemuria, 3,500 x 2 for a couple of castle elixirs, and 36,000 for two possible extra character slots (gotta have that FTUE). I needed 10,000 more crowns.

      Then I bought the $25 for 13k crowns package. $18.75 with the discount.

      You just cost yourselves $61.25.

      Minimum.

      Think about it.

      Crowns sale, real crowns sale, please.

      To Discount! Squaaawooh!
