Why the huge hike on fortune packs? At that cost guilds need to be (very) large to make the packs worthwhile. 

 

Yes, I am from a very small guild so may be a little biased, but why price so many guilds and players out of the market? 

 

Perhaps 40/80 or 50/100 for fortune packs C/D  would be more reasonable. To be fair 20/25 (from previous discussion posts) did seem a bit of a gift.

I feel the same. Why so exorbitant prices for the fortune packs? Obviously it would never be worthy unless you have a huge active guild with high stamina and only during double XP events. 

 

I would like you guys to consider reduce prices to what it was initially proposed 20/25 RP. Or bit higher to 40/50. 

 

Thank You

Reasonable pricing for the vast majority of the game. These changes were up for discussion on the forums for quite a while.

Still waiting to see new RP items so there is something to drive the games economy behind GvG.

They were far, far too low previously and feedback said as much.

New items are something I wanna work on in the future.

I haven't seen any of you contribute to the feedback thread since it was opened and it's still open. Now that the update is released, you now have opinions? Invite the members of your guild to the forums and participate in the discussions.

I liked what I read (as far as I read it) so saw no need to add anything or repeat what had been said. Until now. That is what the 'Like This' button is for. That said I don't read forums obsessively and never saw any suggestion of x5 and x8 multipliers  (from the originally posted 20/25) for the pricing of fortune packs. Apologies if it was suggested and well supported. Had I seen it I would have raised my voice.

 

I still think  x2 and x4 makes it more accessible or it just plays into the hands of the uber-guilds.

 

I agree 20/25 is ridiculously low but the new prices are just too exclusive from my perspective.

Thanks Alisa for your feedback. I'm literally not into posting and yeah i never did too. But i do follow all the posts. 

All i can get from last post about discussion was only one person 'fugrnugget' expressed his feedback to increase in pack for this. No one else supported this. I do not see even you asking for increase in fortune packs price increase. 

 

Anyway that is just my opinion to keep the price reasonable. Its no point in spending 200RP (almost equals to 150FSP or so) unless you get more than 30million gold.

Because it is always the same people contributing for future contents, I still encourage everyone to at least try to ask their guild members to join the forums and give their comments because it is always the same passionate players.

The feedback was for even more. I recognised that the prices were far to low but their suggestion was too high, thus I made the change.

I do not believe this to be the case. I have been monitoring the thread, but there has been no need to comment until now. Unless there is some "feedback" that we are not aware of, ie. not in the thread, then the massive jump in price was only suggested by 2 players, TheCount and fugrnugget. No one else supported this.

That is literally the feedback that made me realise they were too low, though I decided their suggestion of 300 was too high. That is completely correct.

Unfortunately the fact that many players don't post in forums any more is that it has proven to be a monumental waste of their time.  Just look at the detail in which Ryebred (and many others) went to years ago on the forum to try to improve GvG and the support it received only to go no where.  Many players have given up trying to help improve the game when only a certain few are listened to.

Are you serious?  You mean HCS didn't bother to test their new update? Now you have spent your preciously earned guild RP only to find out you get nothing in return? I can't believe this has happened!!! How unusual for this to occur when HCS issues an update.  Surely Hunted Cow Studios guild could have used a portion of their 231 Guild RP (not sure how they earned that since you can't even initiate a conflict against them) to test it before they released it to the player population.  Oh well, I'm sure they will fix it lickety split and probably issue a Thank You for testing it to nobrainer, and perhaps even an apology and refund for your Guild Reputation Points.

Good grief. Was there any error message or did it simply not apply them? I assume the GRP was consumed?

With all due respect Mr. Grim, I do not see anyone suggesting 300 for the pack. Correct me if i'm wrong in finding where that post was.
