      Re: Monthly Wiz-Related Spending

      I have been playing since 2011, have never had a subscription, and own all the areas in the game. IIRC I have made two 90K purchases of crowns back when those sales were available. I do the Dailies and sometimes Trivia (but no consistently). I have bought a few bundles over time, but only if they were 50% off. So by may calculation I have spent about $0.83 per month on Wizard since I started.

      Re: Monthly Wiz-Related Spending

      Just the $10/month for membership, never felt incentivized to buy Crowns.

      At least until the Timed Rewards thing came up and I was able to get both membership and 5k Crowns for $7.50/month. I probably ruined Christmas by making that big purchase but, hey, in my defense, we'll be spending less overall.

      Re: Monthly Wiz-Related Spending

      I have slowed my spending way down. At this point, its mainly due to the lack of time that I can play on the game. However, prior to that, I had slowed down my spending being upset with few things that KI has done. In my height of playing, I would say I was spending around $60.00 to $100.00 a month. Now its closer to $100 every 3 months.

      Re: Monthly Wiz-Related Spending

      A large majority of my crowns are earned through trivia so I haven't really spent much on the game in a while. Just a bundle here and there that I really like, so maybe $39 once or twice a year? Sometimes I have been tempted to get crowns for my main account just to finish buying it off (and maybe get a 7th character slot for my future storm wiz) or even take advantage of the $5 first time membership for all 3 of my accounts to level up all of my wizards, but I haven't yet.

      Bringing back Classic Crown Sales is the first step KingsIsle would need to take if they ever want to see my wallet again. No matter how ethical they are, I will only ever purchase Crowns during one of these sales.

      KingsIsle would also need to do some of the things we have discussed in the MGI thread- essentially, the company needs to be restructured and start pumping out quality content on top of bringing back our classic sales. Some of the more specific deeds that could help in winning over my wallet are:


      • Fixing Spellements
      • Fixing Loremaster
      • Making the game less grindy
      • Revamping Azteca (Removing defeat & collect quests, etc.)
      • Adding a TC Vault
      • Adding a Pet Vault
      • Fixing the Deckathalon
      • Updating Pirate101
      • Reducing the number of predatory microtransactions that are released weekly
      • Make a group of seasoned community members who give feedback on decisions that is taken into account





      There are many more ways in which KingsIsle can improve, but if they commit towards bettering themselves with an ethical attitude I might be willing to drop a few dollars on their game before any of aforementioned additions come to fruition!

      For Players who plan on playing Wiz for over 2 years, Crowns are the cheapest way to go. And for veteran Players who intermittently play like myself, dropping ten dollars a month is a huge waste!

      Same situation here! I haven't purchased a membership since maybe... 2016? I am also an on-off player so memberships ended up being a huge money sink that weren't worth it in the end.

      Switching over to crowns was the best choice, but the last time I bought them was when crown sales were still a thing. I was waiting for another $60 for 60k sale to pop up but then KI pulled the plug on them :'(

      Since then I have been sustaining myself through forum contests and penny(crown?)-pinching.

      Welp. I officially hate KI's new membership management interface on their website. I know why they did it though. It's definitely more irritating to deal with.

      So, the net: $30 more than I mean to this month as apparently I didn't get my 1 month memberships cancelled.

      Re: Monthly Wiz-Related Spending

      I have membership for 2 accounts, often buy the new bundles, and occasionally crowns, about $50 per month. I actually spent more this last year than I ever had before since I have spent less on things like eating out and movies and also had more free time. I can't really think of anything that would convince me to spend more on the game since I feel like I spend quite enough and am able to do everything I want.

      Re: Monthly Wiz-Related Spending

      I have 2 active memberships but besides that I spend very little because of lots of negative changes to the game in recent years. I did however give in and buy 2 bundles during the 50% off sale during Christmas 2020. To be fair even if I was inclined to buy more crowns it's rare I see much from packs that I really want. Maybe some of the mount bundles I want but paying extra for a mega snack pack puts me off.
