In app purchases are ok if the game is great, for ex Gree games. I understand its for profit though but if a game is unplayable without in app purchases, shouldn't the company just make it a paid game?

How much difference in revenue do you think in app purchases make compared to a 1 time payment paid game make?

Well played sir :D still they should augment the amount of gems you receive/ purchase. I mean, 1,79 for only 10 gems? =/ you can't even open a DPC with that :(

Sounds a good idea. We know there are many online stores support mobile orders, so it will be more and more convenient in the near future.

Far worse than most games i have played as far as greed. They don't even tell you the % chance of getting legendaries. How would anyone even know if it was 0 and the ppl with legendaries got them because they were randomly just programmed too to make it look legit. Members in my guild have spent 800+ gems at a time with only getting 1 3 star and the rest 1 and 2 star...with 4-5 copies of the same armor. And the 3 star was something he could have made 10 times over. Crooked. I personally don't hack but good for all those that do who get over on this game. I myself am 650 dollars in with no legendary before i smartened up.

1000000000000% Agree with this dude.

We players needs knowledge of the chance to get epic, legendary and so on in the difference chests.

I've spent well over 2400 Gems $300.00 Real life cash, on the DPC and the best armor I've pulled is the Spectral Guardian+ 3 Star, and Ethereal Garment non-plus 4 star. Everything else has been fusion fodder. Very disappointing.

I've spent probably $200ish on this game over my entire K&D career. Best armor I've gotten from chests has been by far my Flowstone+.

or make the drop rates of the armor better so its worth spending the money i dont see a point to spend money when the drop rate is so low that your getting jipped every time you do spend the cash olny thing ive seen from chests are 2 start armors and one 4 star armor ive made a 3 star armor and a 4 star armor but im done spending money in a game where you get jipped from buying the chests and dont even get a good drop on the armor

Spent almost $100 to open 40 Night Watcher chests and got no Epics. Felt pretty dumb afterwards. I should have known better.

Let's not forgot to mention the ridiculous priced shop items. $100 us dollars gets you 1 million in game gold. Sounds like a lot. .. not when the last 2 expansions cost 1 million and 2 million gold, respectively. Not mentioning the boost armor requirements in guilds. Devs of this game are extremely greedy, but then again, most are when it comes to the free games. I understand they want to make money, but be fair about it.

Seriously, K & D could charge $1.99/mo with 50 gems included, after a free 14 day trial with 20 gems included. Leave the current pricing in place because extra gems will be needed. I bet they would have a larger membership, because players would view them as more honest. Honesty would gain them members willing to pay a small monthly charge and they would lose most.:p (if not all) the complaints regarding offers for gems. (Especially since most of the "free" offers are not free.:mad:)

Gree is just GREEdy as **** and all those people who spend money on the game are giving gree reason to continue their evil ways.

GREE would make hardly any money if it were a paid game, imagine how much money worth of gems the top guilds pay each war. A one-off payment wouldn't get them half the money they are earning now!

In this game there's no competition about HOW you play.
The one with stronger armors wins... of course, you are more active, i know how to handle better enhancement and so on.
But I have one epic armor, you have 3, you win.
The only real competition in this game is based on how much you re going to spend. I might have 12 epic armors maxed, but during a 3 day war I won't be able to make more than 20-30k points without gems... you can have 3 decent armors and make as many points in a single hour.


So it's impossible that they will ever change the payment system... the payperplay games are the ones without competition between players

the proglem that with game wih in game pruckse is that never end... sometime u can buy game in 60$ and start like at all... sometime 800$ will not help u be very strong in games like in game pruckse

Yeah I agree it's largely based on luck. I'll say that I did get pretty lucky with the chests I opened on here. I've spent $250 so far and opened up a total of 60 chests, 40 of the best ones at once and 20 of the Dark Prince's chests. I got two Iron Maelstroms, Tempered Battlegear (4*), Flamehunter's Garb+ (4*), Clayplate Mantle (4*), and Kaleidoscopic Starmetal Raiment (4*) along with a Storm Sorcerer (3*). All of which are decent armors with over 1,000 on each stat or better, aside from Starmetal. Anyway I agree though on drop rates from chests. It's a money sink for sure but they should definitely increase the drop rate. I will add that people on iOS seem to have better chances getting good stuff from the chests. Also buying chests in bulk seems to make the chances of getting an epic or legendary by quite a bit.

Knights and Dragons is simply a new skin on a super old business - advertising. I haven't seen the revenue breakdown but I'd bet money that is where Gree is making all of theirs.
