  • Re: I HEART

    Playing IG charades with @Leighanna, @Rhaladin, @Arakis, @Nikua, @Lynyssa, @Evelene. Also @Ohm that one time.

    If anyone is interested in future charades, let me know. It's VERY fun.

    It is entirely possible to roll the butt half of 50% too. Because it is 50% each time with no memory of the last roll.

    75 spins in + 25 gifted - don't buy, kids.

    Save your $7-$9 and buy yourself lunch 5-50 times, unless you want virtual leaves with every single spin and 3 credit bombs all day and every day. Getting leaves every f-ing spin is infuriating.

    Get leaves, a bomb, and 1 gladiator ticket on a spin and get a stellar 0 credits, 3 credit, and 4 credit value(if you win). Gladiator ticket pool should be a random 1-5 pool and not a flat 1.

    Prizes have been lowered at the pit and you can no longer win 3K or 1K, with a max of 600 only while the other IRE's still have 3K-1K prizes. Yeah, we have gold gambling and they don't, but good luck even winning 10:1 odds now. The only increase in value is to lower 'sure' bets' going from a previous 3 credit value to 4 as stated above. So you're adding a gamble inside a gamble. Gamble on the wheel, but if you want your full 4 credit from the gladiator ticket, you'll need a gamble again at the pit.

    I love to gamble, but this is too much.

    Yes, I'm salty.

    tl;dr below with the number on the right being raw tradein value

    9x    beacon.........144
    4x    earring..........40
    4x    gem..............4
    6x    emitter..........96
    7x    poster...........35
    4x    transmitter....64
    3x    pixies............15
    3x    stone.............198
    4x    charm............24
    3x    bottle.............15
    7x    bomb.............21
    6x    note...............30
    4x    cloak..............20
    2x    gladiator tick..0 (these have no tradein value, but are considered 3 credit value each)
    xx    herbs..............0 (no tradein value)

    Total......................706

    The above calculation is RAW tradein in. Meaning once in your inventory you can quickly convert it to bound credits if need be. which is why you see the multi-facet gem being valued at 1 credit. You can likely sell it for more than 1 credit, but remember that because we have a small population, it will be harder to move these items the longer we go into the month when more people buy. We see this time and time again with every promotion that offers things like gem and map fragments.

    25 spins cost $180 dollars. Let's round down on the credit packages and say, we will pay .33 cents a credit if we look at the 600 credit package for $198, since that will be the closest package. At this price, for $180, we should get 545 credits.

    With the current gladiator promo and gladiator tickets having a value of 3 credits per(if you win only, and consider too that the prizes have been drastically reduced. No longer will you find 750, 1000, or 3000 payouts.), if you buy 545 credits, you'd receive 54 tickets which is 162 credits in value.

    545 + 162 = 707

    With Iron Elite, we can safely say add 54 credits to this number(545 x 0.10 = 54).

    545 + 54 + 162 = 761

    Consider that this is a small sample size, and also consider that you absolutely can get lucky and spin a big credit prize from the wheel, but watching other paid spins as well, I saw a total of ONE credit prize awarded and it was for a paltry 25 credits.

    Final thoughts on paid website spins.. I wouldn't buy any packages below the 25 spin package, because spinning 5 or 10 times is not enough for you to average out ahead if you are unlucky. This is a gambling promo through and through, so remember that. Overall, one thumb down, one neutral thumb.

    Thoughts on credit spins at 25 credits a spin? Do it so the counter goes down and I can spin for the jackpot. Don't do it. Don't do it. Don't do it. Don't do it. Don't do it. Don't do it. Don't do it.

    You will never come out ahead in the long run. The 250 prize pays out not often enough to justify chasing it. And when you put in 25, you are averaging a 2 credits returned in tradein value. Nevermind if you get herbs, that's 1 credit return because herbs are worth absolutely nothing.

    Final thoughts.. two thumbs down, two big toes down.

    @Jeremy Saunders - I think you guys need to consider the high buy-in for this promo. A starting point of $45 which is $9 a spin is way too high. Phylacteries offered a sweet spot of $5(a cup of coffee) and a fair return even if you were unlucky. I know I keep comparing promos with phylacteries, but that is probably the only promo where you will find 1.) players walking away not feeling like they were robbed. 2.) players not blinking twice about dropping $5 for a chance at glory. Or $24 for 5 chances.

    As I type this I am getting tells from two players regretting their $45 purchase. The value simply is not there. And I don't even know if this is something that you guys are going to/can change because every IRE game has their prices for spins at $9 starting point.

    If anyone has an thoughts and questions, please feel free to chime in or ask and I will be happy to answer as best as I can.

    Edit: Left out a zero in my total. Oops!
