Prices on instant upgrades

I started to upgrade my first 15 weapon to tier 3. Just saw the cost for instant upgrade and it blew my mind. 3400 gold for one tier of a 15 epic weapon. Thats more than 30 Euros. Lawl.. Uhm? 0_o

    ~500k exp to upgrade one tier is insane, too.

    I hope they absurdly increase exp and food requeriments in next patch so I can be free from my adiction to this game!

    This post is misleading.
    That is the cost to purchase the tomatoes AND instant upgrade. If you spend the 487k, then use the >> button, the cost for the instant upgrade is significantly less.

    But anyway sounds crazy isn't it?
    Converting missing supplies for gold is insane.

    I wrote many times that payment things in this game is ridiculous in every aspect. But who is more crazy? Devs or people paying for that... I bet players.... Sad but that's the truth

    It's what stops me buying small amounts of gold it's almost worthless unless you spend a fortune. The weapon upgrade costs in xp are getting out of hand as well. You can't even store enough xp to fully upgrade a single weapon now

    I'm sure MANY more people would drop some cash on the game if the prices weren't so outrageous on everything.
    NG sees a tiny percentile actually spend the money and think "HA! I know these idiots would pay for it!"
    if the prices were actually sane...they would probably make WAY more money overall and 1000x the people would actually spend a few bucks here and there.

    For example, if you could sell a million DVDs for a few bucks each, or sell three to some rich idiot for $1000 each just cause he dgaf and wants to feel special with what he got... which would make you more profit?

    Food for thought.

    I am totally addicted to this game and have probably spent more than $150 buying gold for upgrades over the past few months. I don't mind spending SOME money sometimes, but holy crap!
    Come on guys!!!!!!!!!
    Help a girl out for real! Please!!!
    I wanna keep playing, I love it, but y'all are making it too expensive to keep going.
    That really makes me sad.

    Spending money in this game is like road with no end. Everything to council lvl 14 was resonable fine. Now prices, exp, supplies req to build something are insane! Game speed progress now will be descreased 300% - or spend more $$$$. Good luck!!! or open your eyes

    ....after few days you find out that it's still not enough. There should be more attractive bundles to offer. I bought two at the beginning but that's all. Nothing worth left to buy....

    They just need to change the upgrades from farms and tents.
    Its not logical that you need to pay more and more for upgrades and the income goes up with peanuts.

    devs think that many players are already too addicted to the game. the prices are high so that you will stop spending and have more patience earning the required xp, supply, gas and time upgrading, And eventually cure your addiction..

    @AysatyoPet
    Exactly - last update was like bucket with cold water on my head. I'm really close to quit....few steps I can say:) Now I see it pointless. 2mil to upgrade 1 building when we have 10 to upgrade + shit lot of XP to upgrade gear and survivors. Everything together means one thing - without a bunch of $$$ forget about pleasure from playing.

    Lol I wouldn't pay 29 gold earlier to finish time on my council, no way I'm paying insta for upgrades costing hundreds or more. At some point NG needs to realize that we need more/better production to keep up with cost and keep gold cost to a sane amount....

    I dont know what you earn in Finnland from a normal job or what the prices are for groceries. But in germany 3400 gold are 2 bottles Jack Daniels or 6 pack of cigarettes or a half tripple A game for PS4 or a half tank of gas for a normal limousine Car, or 1 Month broadband internet including a small premium tv package.. I could go easy on with 50 other examples.. Makes me wanna stop spending for the game. Because there is no real value in exchange. Simply not worth it and kinda insane..

  • I'm sorry my mind drew a blank just looking at that weapon. What was the issue here? HaHa! The prices to open may be absorbent but that is a tremendously awesome weapon :)
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    I don't blame devs for making price for everything insane - I can only blame players that are so stupid to buy it. If nobody will spend $ on gold then price will be dropped very quick.

    I think these games make most of their money from the people that do spend 1000's so you can't really blame them for pricing accordingly. I'm not sure how valuable someone like me who'd spend a couple of £'s a month really is.
    It'll be interesting to see how the rewards for the outposts are priced. For example i'd probably pay £1 for a legendary weapon. I suspect the price will be more like £20.

    I bought Xcom 2 for £27 ( Ufo Enemy Unknown is still my best turn base strategy ever) and I know I will spend with that game more than 100 hrs but the best thing is I can play as much I want.
