I don’t understand why the in-game purchase packages are so random. After a player gets to a certain level, he knows exactly what he needs.
Right now, I need 2-3 more workers. But every package is a spell package or a gold package, which I have no use for.
I’m willing to plunk down real cash for the discounted items, if they’re the items I actually need. I can’t imagine why it has to be so random.
Really, multiple packages should be offered, or allow us to customize them, like this:
Choose your package of upgrades for 80% off! (Minimum XXX gems worth of discounted upgrades required for purchase):
[worker] x [n]
[spell] x [n]
Then we can spend as much as we want and buy as many gems as is needed for our custom packages.
Flare has missed many opportunities to take my cash. It can offer the regular packages to entice low-level players, but give us custom or additional packages, too.
Sometimes, by the time a package has come through again, I’ve slogged through the game and gotten the upgrades, albeit much more slowly. But that’s painful for me and less money for Flare.
