You do not buy, I'm certainly not since the price of gold had increased, its not a 40% saving at all, more like a 30% saving.

If it were 90% off, it wouldn't have any value, nor would it be a bargain.
Why?
Well, you spend real money for fake gold.
On second thought, it isn't even fake gold.
It's as invisible as the boosts, and just about as effective.
I wonder who came up with the invisible boost lie?
Sorry, I digressed.
Happily, I'll pass.
Besides, what could I do with massive amounts of gold?
Why nothing.
I suspect, if you just had to buy something, $15 or $20 won't break you; and Gree won't get rich off of you.
And, you can feel as if you got a bargain.
It's all up to you, player.

Yes, it is only some 30% - with price increase in EUR. Staying strong, no virtual gold for real money and broken promises.

I will spend the money on my vacation next week, many beer and great meals!

Jep, I'm going to buy a Lego 4x4 Crawler, for the money I'm not spending on this game anymore, and build it with my Son. No more gold and just pure free game play fun in MW and at home with my kid.

Btw. I'm still waiting for my Steele UAV, well done Gree, you made helped me make up my mind.

And freedom tastes of reality,

This really sucks because I'm supporting the gold boycott but I really need gold so I can buy the Composite Factory I know this isn't exactly a full boycott but get the composites factory through tapjoy. I have got my factory and completed 35 kills of an epic boss with using this method. DO NOT BUY ANY GOLD!!

I was tempted at first but then I realised that there's nothing really worthwhile to buy for the gold anyways... Only time I've felt a need for gold has been when I had 9/10 crates open. Otherwise, patience does the trick for me :cool:

BTW. the 40% off sale is not really a 40% off sale in Denmark, a least not for a stockpile, bank truck or vault, where it's only 35% off. Not that I care, cause I'm freeeeeee...

I have never purchased gold from Gree for any of their games. I can't believe in order to get the boost building, the Composite Factory at 250 gold, one can only purchase it with gold or get it via free gold. I can't be bothered to go through all the offers to get to 250 free gold, so....

As it is 40% off, I have made my first and LAST purchase of 240 gold for 7.99 rather than 13.99, so that I can get this 'invisible' boost. I am willing to pay that amount to Gree but no more thank you. I was a free gold player but now I am a one-off purchase gold player... lol

Let me help you guys. If you really want to play this game in a way that you can at least keep up a little bit with other gold spenders, you would need to purchase a minimum of 20 to 25 vaults of gold per month. That would never get you to the top and you will never win a leaderboard event but you may get into the second tier of gold players eventually.

Blackstone

Funny I haven't gotten a boss event popup in months, yet Gree makes damn sure I get their 40% sale popup every time I log on.

16 hours and the pain will be gone...must be strong. Haha.

The cost without the sale would be more than my monthly mortgage outgoings. I don't need to keep up with the gold spenders, I don't need to be on any leaderboard and I don't need any limited edition units. I enjoy playing the game without spending gold apart from this one off purchase to get the Composite building.

Thanks for the help... but I don't need it ;-)

So basically us normal folk wake up in the morning, log on to do our collections and then get ready for another day whereas you guys wake up, log on and buy your morning vault before breakfast.

Lol! Exactly...20 vaults per month? Seriously?? If I had that kind of money to throw away, I would probably be engaging in different types of entertainment than online games.

Yep, sounds about right Bronson. Only in my case you could have multiplied that by four or five. Not now.

Ashamed i confess. Actually, it does not go that way exactly. It is more like that on some moments you tell yourselves what the heck, i want this badly whatever the costs. It is like your brain momentarily shuts off.

Yup....or making some sound investments so I could have the option of blowing off $2k - $5k per month on online games down the line.

20 to 25 vaults per month !!!!!! Wow
You have more money than sense clearly. Why don't you buy an Xbox or ps3 and buy 10 games instead, you'll get much more fun for your money.

Actually, no, B.

When gold was purchased, most of us would have to arrange with Apple to buy it in $10,000, $20,000, and even $50,000 lots.

It took time, planning, patience, and of course purchases of massive amounts of iTunes cards.

Thankfully, those days are ancient history now.

Ferr's advice is prescient.

It ain't easy being gold.

What's with the "Biggest sale yet!" line on the popup? They've had 40% off sales before ...

The real question is:

Is the sale in response to the boycott?

I think you'll find its the free players that decided to spend this time and those who have no idea of the issues in the game. Whoever did its a loss to their own pocket as their output of cash compared to big gem buyers still wont cut it. There only pumping money into a broken game anyway.
