If the customers want it, that's a sure way they won't happen for another week or so.
There's also no energy pack sales, nutting. I think their office is in total shutdown (mentally or physically).

I appreciate your efforts................. but, they know.

They know we desire getting gems at the cheapest possible price........ they know we want free gems for videos on iOS. They know we want 2 day wars that start on Fridays. They know we want Heroic Mode. They know we want more FBA as awards because the DF armors take forever to level....... they know, they know, they know.

Sorry Gree, I've been enjoying the game for quite some time now..but it is very hard as a customer to justify some of your actions that just seem to (deliberately) disappoint your player base. I can only speak for myself, but discontinuing the weekly holiday sale isn't going to suddenly make me start buying gem packs at full price, but just stop spending money on your game altogether. You guys had started these sales on a pretty predictable schedule and almost as soon as we could start to count on them being there, you pull the rug out from under our feet. It seems as though each time we are thrown a bone, we can expect that shortly after you guys will do something to get in the way of yourselves and completely ignore any customer feedback (heroics,holiday pack,chest rewards,etc...) It is very disappointing to continue to watch people I've played with for ages quit the game over a few problems that could be fixed easily.

Seriously, where is the holiday pack sale? Just as Sober stated, removing the packs isnt going to force me to start paying normal price for gems. I ONLY ever buy gems during a holiday sale, so if those go I guess I just never buy gems again. Honestly though, why isnt one up yet? This is aggravating

Soberranger's post was perfectly put. As soon as get used to something and enjoy it, it's gone. I don't see why that has to happen. Never buying on full price! NEVER!!!

The only good thing (from a selfish perspective) is I haven't bought any gems on my alt for over a week which has meant no chest purchases. I'm feeling flush :D

The way this game is managed makes it look as if management only wants the absolute braindead ones among us remaining.

An elite troup of maybe 300 players who strip for each other and then kill each other for thousands of times during 6 day wars (only 6 because day #7 = blitz war) and spend gems they have purchased for an insane price (maybe double as now) like crazy.

They have proven for DOZENS of times during just the last 5 months (since shortly before Heroic mode was introduced) that they give a warm shyte about what their main customer base wants. They tell us that we are 'appreciated', throw us a peanut and then hit us with 10 hard slaps right in the face. And the ones who still resist and are still buying get another few fist punches on their noses.

Nah, roookey1, that can't be. I don't think the game is coded to allow both an announced war and a war reward collection period running at the same time. ;)

New chest, 5k gem event(even if it's rubbish) and war about to start but no gem sale, let alone a holiday pack sale. No gems sale = no spend the moolah! Not good business in my opinion. Surely there are not enough idiots still willing to buy gems at full price for Greedy to benefit from this tactic.

And what I find even more funny with this armor pack, is that this weeks EB +version is actually better over all than the normal Aquatic. So everybody who can beat EB 43 gets a better armor for free.

Haha the funny thing is, though, t25 is much more desirable than t10. A lot of people have 3 firestorm+ from the last heroic (including myself) and have absolutely no desire for that junk df in t10. The t25 all-seeing+ is much more attractive to most lol. Funny how that works

On topic about the recent trend of no sales, though. Gree has made plenty of stupid decisions in the past but this is by far the stupidest. I think a change of management is in order, as the people currently running the company have obviously become senile or something to that effect.

Do some regions get offers that others do not ?
Our Indonesian Guild members got a 30% off Gem sale about 6 hours ago. Okay they only get to watch one video a WEEK - and perhaps Gree is trying to make up for that - BUT if that's true what about those in parts of Europe that hardly get any either? We're fine in London at 12 to 30 Gems per day. A Greek Guild member has never got single Gem in 15+ months of trying almost daily! Being f2p he has to rely heavily on keys & milestone rewards to even finish his Castle !!

Also the News screen is totally messed up with double event posts & blank spots. Have we been missing Flash sales because of this? Sorry to for going on & on - rather tired as it's 5.30am in UK & I'm about to sleep.
Any offers would be nice Gree people, just don't take 90 days to satisfy our requests please - like it took to get my Rings & Amulets back ... :-)

12-30 gems a day! We have not even had the free gems option for nearly 6 months on IOS, so at 12 a day that would equate to about 2000 gems. And there has been no sales in Australia for about a week or so that I know of. Making getting the war milestones a challenge 👎

They are trying to entice new and f2p players into buying gems. But let me see if I get this correct.
First time players get a 20% discount but normally before there has always been sales of 40%, so why in the world would I take a 20 % discount for a reward of 3 FB? The 40% was the best deal.

So I believe they are testing the waters by not offering any sales. They are gauging whether they will truly loss money or if they will break even or make a profit. The full price of the gems are crazy high, but for every one that gets sold equals to almost 2 on the 40% off. They believe that DF will get people to spend more. Look at what they did, lower the price of chests while taking away all the extra FB and guarantee epic +.

I truly believe the holiday packs will go back to the norm, where they only offer them on holidays.

The only way to have them change anything, if the majority of spenders stop spending. Yet that will never be case, since there will always someone that step up and spend.

I don't think enough people will pay full price. I know the majority in Rug this war are playing with gems we already had stocked up. Only a small few have paid full price, and in much smaller quantities than on holiday pack. I would sooner stay in freeplay than pay 80 for 800 gems.

@The Calling the nice thing about the armor pack is the 2,000 gold that comes along with it --- that's 2 times of what we get for a daily reward or for making it to a new level, and it comes without extra cost! Gree is so generous, just perfect customer-pampering marketing strategy with the likes of Google etc., so take their offer - or at least think about it!

Not sure that they truly went out of touch with the game as the actual mechanics are constant. We still have epic bosses, wars, raids, blitz, collections, fusions, arena etc. The holiday packs in the past were never as nice as the ones they had recently. Players have been able to purchase some epic armors with a guarantee of success.

I for one won't be paying full price for gems. And at this point probably not even during a sale. If they have in fact got rid of the holiday packs then it shows how greedy they are and I won't be spending anymore money. The holiday packs have helped alot of us and to take it away is just wrong. I stopped playing another game because they got to greedy I have no trouble stopping this one too.

Yes true but now they took away the guarantee items when purchasing chests in bulk. Yes in the holiday packs only cam out during the holidays.

But when a company gives you a lot for your money, then all of the sudden decide to the change the rules in their favor they become out of touch with its base players. That is the issue that players have issues with. There was no need to take away the holidays packs and if they did, why not reduce the price of gems. A permanent reduction would encourage players to spend and then when holiday packs come out on holidays there would be a overwhelming increase of buys thus increasing profits.
if
People do not mind spending money on this game but you must give them a reason to spend more and more but gree went the opposite way on this. They want to drive players to spend less and less. Management either is really dumb and out of touch with the players and community or they don't care and either way that will essentially kill a game

It's not normal I agree with anything the usual suspects say on this forum, but this time they win. I can live without the holiday packs, but no sale at all during an event? Really? Actually no sale at all in 2 weeks or so. Drop a 30-40% on us gree. Doesn't have to be a holiday pack. I don't understand the business logic in it either. We had a war, a df chest, now a bling chest all without a sale. Numbers have to be down.

Ok so I know there are quite a few Aussies who play knd. So shouldn't it be fair that a holiday pack should come through this week due to us having our Queens Birthday Public Holiday? I see no problem with that and I'm sure everyone else in knd wouldn't have a problem with it either. And GREE definitely shouldn't have a problem as everyone will buy gems for the up and coming Raid Boss. So really its a win/win scenario for all.

Im sure those select few people will still buy gems, but still Gree has to be losing money. I mean, who in their right mind would pay full price for gems!? At thr moment $100 would get me 800 gems, whereas in holiday packs it would be 2k gems, 100 2* armors (good for enhancement) and some gold (never a bad thing). Soooo... no thnx, I'll save my money for when (and IF) holiday packs come back. Paying at full price is just sheer stupidity and a huge waste of cash.

Raid will be interesting. The combination of a lack of gems and a crappy armour means there might be some freeplay t25 even t10 guilds. Of course, raids are all about how good your armours are so it'll probably be the same familiar faces.

Sidenote: My bank account is finding this a liberating experience. I can't remember the last time I went more than a few days without buying gems and now it's been over 2 weeks. And it stopped me buying chests where all other attempts have failed. Gree has staged an intervention!

I don't see any issue here. Holiday packs (are from what I have asked), pre-planned from Gree. The armor pack prices are much lower than they were previously. Remember the legendary armor that cost $99.99?

What is wrong with Normal SnowStorm Platemail for T250? If they place that high then they deserve it.

"What is wrong with Normal SnowStorm Platemail for T250? If they place that high then they deserve it."

I agree Legalious. With DF becoming the new epic and epics changing to legendaries, there is no harm in this change. So T250 and T100 get a very old epic/epic+. It stills takes effort to reach those levels and honestly trying to reach them for legendaries is not worth it at all. The opportunity to obtain an epic at T100 and T250 will not shift the balance of power. Legendaries are next to useless except for lower level players anyways and with legendary+legendary rates being so terrible, I am looking forward to obtaining a Snowstorm/Snowstorm+ this weekend. At the very least I can fuse it for a guaranteed epic. I just hope that they start epic+epic= a chance of a DF soon.

Legalious, with respect, 7.99 for an ancient old epic boss 4* is a complete rip off. That's like saying a garden shed is worth 50k cos someone once paid 500k for one.

No issue with t250 rewards at all. Think it's a good idea. But why are they starving players of being able to participate fully in events by withdrawing the gem sales? What does 'pre-planned' mean? Surely previously when they had them weekly the holiday packs didn't take it upon themselves to magically appear in the game. So they have always been 'pre-planned'. And in two years of playing there has never been over 2 weeks without a sale. If you're going to comment on something people are so peeved about, at least be clear please.

Lol P, spending full price on gems is beyond even my stupid behaviour, however much the itunes are burning a hole in my pocket. I won't bother trying to retire just yet though, I'll stay home and kill some beasts with Clay (for free! Yay)
The Sages are going ftp this weekend.

Gree could have gotten a good chunk of money from me this week. I blew all my gems on the jewel chest. I made a choice to spend all my gems on that and buy more if they have a holiday pack. No holiday pack, no gems. Simple as that.

So when you look at the business end of it, what makes more sense? Get 0 money for no gems or 40% of the Suggested Retail Price with the holiday pack? Hmmmmmmmm

You are correct MisterT..... slowly killing this game..... some weeks faster than others.

I don't see any issue here. Holiday packs (are from what I have asked), pre-planned from Gree. The armor pack prices are much lower than they were previously. Remember the legendary armor that cost $99.99?

What is wrong with Normal SnowStorm Platemail for T250? If they place that high then they deserve it.

well pass this message along to gree please since gree does not get an access to our line chats

warning. this is a giant message from the players: No sale? No buy!

Yup if you cant rely on sales like we could past months its useless and takes the fun out. Killing off the game quietly are we or just trolling the players? Could use an answer from someone who actually knows :P

Too much greed it seems. Armors are still coming out, events are still happening, gems and gold are still purchasable, and the arena still works.

Sure, gem sales are great and help with people that want to get ahead by using actual money but are not the heart and soul of the game. Rather than play the "woe is me" or "I will quit if I don't get what I want," maybe we should suggest better ways at getting ahead. Don't demand it, earn it.

Let me put it this way: if i am looking to buy $100 of gems, and there is a holiday pack, i would be willing to spend at least $150 for gems, because it is a bargains. 150>100. Dont you Gree understand that? both of us win. if no sale, we both lose.

I can comment as a normal player, because I am just that. Another player.

Pre-planned - verb: to plan in advance.

I'm familiar with the dictionary definition of 'pre-planned'. I'm just confused as what it means in this context. As I said, surely they didn't appear of their own accord previously so they were always pre-planned. Doesn't explain why they aren't appearing now. Would be good if you could ask that since you have a voice with them and report it back to us :)

I mean Gree keeps comming up with over prices outdated armors yet they won't put up a holiday pack or even a 30% or 40% gem sale. The T250 getting epic isn't the problem but the fact that they can change the rewards but won't do anything for gem sales. IMO No gem sales is slowly killing the game because a lot won't pay full price for gems. Less money comming in from gem sales means less money for Gree to spend on the game, Gree's people still need to get the paycheck.

This feels like GREE is testing the waters to see how much spending occurs during events without any sales.

Or perhaps they are building up demand for buying gems so that when they do offer a sale the floodgates will open.

Its all a money grab at the end of the day.. People are still buying gems regardless of sales or not.. I know a few players that have already spent well over $2500 and will continue to spend sale or no sale.. I personally would love a holiday pack.. until then.. bank all the free gems I can get and save up for when they do have a sale (30%-40% or Holiday Pack) and go gem frenzy!!

I agree the first statement and actually have said that before. If they can make money( i.e. if they make the same profit level with full price gems as sale gems) why would they go back.

If players want to have gree change the prices, we must come together and not buy a single gem no matter what the price is. If we hurt their bottom line, they will be forced to listen. This will come at a price for a some guilds like losing placement in raids and wars due a lack of buying gems but they must be ok with that if they want a change

the free gem button where players could watch some advertizing to gain a few extra gems which disappeared like a year ago on ios.

Now the sale has also disappeared....

This whole situation is absurd and ridiculous. I remember when the Holiday Packs actually were special. They lost their meaningfulness because players came to expect them. And now...the same people who refer to Gree as "Greed" are complaining about them not putting a Holiday Pack out to make money...Funny.

It's actually the fact that there have no sales lately, zero! No 40%, 30% not even a lousy 20% sale. Of course everybody loves the holiday sales and since they became a regular weekly thing of course people expect it but to go from that to no sales is just ridiculous.

Not offering discounts must have been a great success for Gree:
the top guilds spent up to 60% less than in the previous (also mono-element) raid.

I just wonder what IQ range the players must have who would spend $500 for Champion+ (2238/2053) ?

DK didn't go that far, they just spent 50% less for t1 and t3 spent ~75% less for t3 than the previous mono-element raid. ;)

Its the same with IOS....T1 was taken over by Touch and T2 by France....and the score for T1-T25 is surprising low...Most of the people just used FE to cruise to finishing line....I suspect gem bought is 70% lesser.

The longer this goes on, the more I believe they're running down the game on purpose.
(if they don't, the management should be kicked out of their leather chairs immediately, as they are unable to manage a proven cash cow efficiently, but I think they can't really be THAT stupid)

Players leaving in swarms by themselves probably comes cheaper than hundreds filing lawsuits for getting disowned by Gree if it's shut down.

So, extract the last gems they still own by advertising BS 'best chance ever' garbage chests and a few more pixel wars without discounts on weaponry fuel.

Hi everyone,

I've received some private messages stating there's some concern that Knights & Dragons is shutting down due to the lack of sales recently. Let me please reassure you that K&D isn't going anywhere. Having said that, I will continue to be vigilant in communicating to the Dev team everyone's desire for a sale.

Thanks

Relic it has been 19 days now, about 3 weeks without a sale, by now there has to be sufficient time for you and the Dev to communicate and have a Holiday Pack/Sale up, plus what you just said was exactly what you said about 2 weeks ago.

no, I just don't spend.

Actually I'm thankful for this, it helps me to save my money, and a guild like mine which spends only in very limited ways during wars/raids will have better chances against the gem addicts / win buyers.

Funny you mention this, as I was in a similar situation. I obtained t25 (permafrost+) off free energy, but the rewards this war were funny. At the end of the war we didnt drop our stacks as we highly preferred to keep t25 and were avoiding accidentally slipping into t10 lol. Funny when the t25 rewards r more desirable than the t10 rewards, but thats how its been the past 2 events now. Altho i agree, getting a high rank off free energy is pretty dam nice hahaha.

Hurry. about half of our top players have quit Knd alrady. These are the players who purchae more than 5k gems each month.

Im only sticking around for cheap wars but the last time I bough anything from you guys is the last holiday sale, and I really don't plan on buying unless I see another holiday sale.

You guys can't afford to not give us sales. We don't love the game THAT much. Games that give us a lot of activity for just a few bucks is a dime a dozen.

Although your perspective is understandable, this game will not continue without people paying the bills. Your thrill will be short lived. Perhaps that's what management wants...............

It's not just the question of a sale, it's also what you can get for it.

I'm not win buying, so the chests are my preferred choice. There hasn't been a chest worth buying into since months - before, because not enough of the new generation armors released yet, so the chance to get one out of them was extremely low. Not worth buying. Now there are a few, but DF chances are so ridiculous I would have to be an enemy of my money to buy those garbage 2-star, 3-star and 4-star chests which they in fact are.

As long as chests have such bad chances of getting anything of value, I won't buy into them anymore, also because I think the future of the game seems to be very dim to say it politely.

But it still seems odd for GREE(d) to shift over to favoring the f2p population. What revenue do they create? None. We're free to play.
At this rate, there will be no spenders left.
