Unfairness and equality

Postby tlise » Sun Sep 04, 2016 10:56 am

I get this is a business for King but they are losing players on their other games, they should know by now.
I understand the release of new features to random players..only they are not always so random. But you know, this happens. What bugs me is the unfairness.
Last time tradefest in bonus tiers it ranged from 100 to 1000 hearts per tier, per player. Why the variation? How us that fair? This time it seems some players have bonus tiers, done don't. I managed 4 last time, many group members finished them. Some of them have the bonus this time, I don't. My hubby does. It's not a test phase so why doesn't everyone get them?
Then there is the price for new items such as the eternal coconut tree. I don't have the option, hubby does ( he also has the new mill feature) but he is being charged 300 gems . In the group we are in , someone was charged 20 then 40 then 60 gems . How is that fair? He wouldn't buy them at that price so is happy using axes. I don't mind paying more...it's a choice at the end of the day. It's a premium feature. But if that is the case then everyone should be charged the same for the premium feature. That's where it's not fair.
And perhaps while they are testing things, if people know the prices are varying so much, if people refused to buy them then they would have to make it fairer.

I get charged 250 COINS for a coconut tree. That remains unchanged. Who gets charged Gems?

It's a different kind of tree, currently only available to some players.its an eternal coconut tree. There are threads discussing it.

Just a thought that beyond beta testing, some of the differences could be market testing.

I have the eternal coconut tree on 1 of my account but not the ones I want it on. You can essentially have 6 coconut trees at once if you purchase all 3 eternal trees. First one is 200 gems, next 400 gems, last I assume 600 gems

The gem amount varied. I saw some people say that they only had to pay 50 gems for the first Eternal Tree.

I bought one eternal tree and it was 100 gems which I think was fair. The next one was 200 so not getting anymore of them.

It's similar concept to the artic turtle and things. They don't seem to offer the same price to everyone though. Which doesn't make any sense at all.
