I'm currently gathering resources to make a strong push to platinum but have deficiencies in both pxp and evo. Season mode provides both of these in abundance (22,500 pxp, 110 evo and 13,750 pennants). My team is dominant in season mode and rarely loses, most recently going 114-2 in the regular season and easily sweeping the playoffs. So those resources are definitely within reach. I've historically been patient and waited for my free season games to refresh, however, I'm starting to think seriously about purposefully accelerating my season mode play. With a 7-hour refresh, I currently play 12 free season games per day, meaning that it takes about 10-11 days to complete a full season.
If I were to pay 150 gold after each series to double the pace of my season mode, my thinking is that I would be paying a total of 2,400 gold (16 cycles * 150 gold/cycle) for an incremental 22,500 pxp, 110 evo and 13,750 pennants. If Glu were to offer a box with the following for 300 gold (2,812 pxp, 14 evo and 1,719 evo) I'd fall all over myself to buy as many as I could. Are there any economists or accountants in our midst that could validate that this is a good idea before I start throwing gold away?
