I think it was shared from one of the dev chats a couple years ago, that one of the Glu folks had flat out said they'd rather have 10,000 of the $2 spenders than 1 of the $20,000 spenders. Anyway, yesterday was basically a 24 hour prime event disguised as a multi-event, which just screams vacuum-all-the-crumbs to me.
I'm not certain its been exactly the same every year, but I do recall last year PXP being nowhere to be found (and its even worse this year, or seems that way). But, last year when legends were released I distinctly recall being surprised by the abundance of LXP that was made available right from the get go.
Glu needs to read this Aesop fable: https://fablesofaesop.com/the-north-wind-and-the-sun.html (Except, opening a man's wallet instead of removing his coat.) EDIT: Yes, my parents read some weird *** to me when I was a kid
Are the developers so disconnected from the end users experience that they don't understand having tons of new prime players released, but no way to level them? Or is this a conscious decision to basically make the prime players only available to people with 7 figure incomes?
Yeah what I've always heard (and also based on my own experience) is not logging on/ opening the app. Nothing to do with spending money. If it were that easy - just stop spending money and boom, get all the players - then nobody would buy anything lol
They increased the frequency of the image puzzles again. Getting them every 25 games instead of every 50ish games. Not enough to make me quit like before (every 4 games), but its definitely annoying enough that I will play less after I have to solve 4 or 5 of them in a 1/2 hour period.
@Cooz19 Yep, it does make sense that golf & baseball games are at the top of the list instead of football, basketball because it is summertime. My point was more so that MLB 9 Innings is more of a competitor than people would realize, and not that TSB was a top grossing game overall. I'm just saying, even though MLB 9…
Glu as a whole is doing very well. TSB is also doing very well, as a moderate portion of their portfolio of games. TSB wouldn't be the first Glu project to go under (hint: there are MANY that have), but I think the prospects of that happening are very slim. It's the 4th highest grossing mobile sports game as of May 25,…
Event brackets have been super easy the last 2 days. I haven't purchased a mystery box since Monday (so nothing Tue, nothing Wed, nothing today) and I'm in 4th place right now and its just me all by myself with like 4 bonus guys. I think that says a lot. EDIT: 3rd place LOL
Yeah, I mean that's been proven a bazillion times. Happy customers spend more money. It's not even about happy customers at this point. We're all pretty mad lol. The odds on player boxes, pricing/value on in-app purchases and availability of various resources just isn't realistic. The average user is not a multi…
Yadi is top 3 one of my favorite Cardinals of all time (Pujols, Yadi, Ozzie Smith). But, I literally have zero ambition to try to get him as it would cost me about $2,000 by my estimation to acquire & level him. Even if it were $200 and not $2,000 then I would still not even be tempted. This is way out of control. LOL
Well, the daily topics of conversation used to be positive and constructive. Now, our daily topics of conversation range from boxes with player odds of 0.4% that cost $1000+ to level if you haven't already spent that much to acquire them, to whatever is broken or not working on any given day.
