Gold Price Increase of the monthly card packages

Postby ripDreyla » Mon Jun 25, 2018 9:12 pm

Was wondering if the monthly card packages will all now be at 600,000 Gold? Or will it depend on the cards released? It seems that the increase from 300,000 Gold to 600,000 seems a bit steep. And if this is to be a regular price every month, it won't be sustainable for some players and in time it could cause people to lose interest if they can no longer keep up with the increasing and hefty costs every month.

We are all happy to see new cards come out a bit more regular. But perhaps we can either slow it down a little bit? Like every 2 or 3 months to really balance the cards and let them settle in. And if that isn't desirable, perhaps we could bring the price for a monthly release down to a more manageable level? Even if it means release fewer cards monthly.

Hopefully something can give, I'd rather spread out the cards so that we get less, and pay less, more often, than get swarmed with so many cards at increasing costs. Or we get more over longer time, and again give time to save up to get the new cards.

At this pace some of us are going to fall behind and if we fall behind too much, well. There is a reason why I don't play Hearthstone anymore. Wouldn't want to see that happen with Spellweaver. Just asking to please keep us casuals in mind when creating future release schedules and pricing.

As an additional question, why did we suddenly go from no card releases in months, to so many card releases every month? It's a bit concerning that some cards might be getting rushed out unnecessarily.

I understand we had more cards this month and there was more value there. But at this rate, not going to be able to keep up. And in long run, that could be very detrimental.

Are there any other plans to develop any other game modes? Such as ai Trials? Or ai ladders? Something for pve players to perhaps increase our gold winnings to keep up with the increasing costs of so many more cards?

Easy answer: There will be no new cards next month, so the overall price stays at 300k per month. Also this package packed thrice as much value shrine wise (the shrines per gold ratio of the june package is about 50% better than that of the may package).

Edit: The reason why we are getting new cards every month now and nothing before is that the devs were preoccupied with the mobile release and didn't have the time to design new cards. However new cards are the lifeblood of any card game and especially a f2p game needs to pump out content constantly. In order to not prolong the wait for new content any longer than necessary the devs decided to go with this monthly release system, so they could get at least some new cards into the game as soon as possible.
It is a challenge to design and test cards at this pace but it is necessary to keep the game going. And I don't think any of the new cards were toooo bad for the game (tweaks to book will follow shortly).

As far as I know the focus currently lies almost exclusively on getting monthly cards out and fixing bugs. There are plans for some more interesting tournament formats but those will probably have to wait a few more months at least.
I also doubt there will be much more AI content added to the game. It's A LOT of work to get AIs ruinning smoothly and every card change could potentially make AI overhauls necessary. The focus of this game is and will probably stay multiplayer.
