Thanks for sharing your feedback and worries here, the event is meant to be fun and it was created for you, so please do keep the feedback coming!
Here's a question for those of you with more winter event experience:
When all players jump over the finishing line, how did the Winter event packages affect the end results? You can compare these to your previous rounds of WE: What if you had then picked the Basic, Premium, or Deluxe package?
Based on that, what changes would you make to these packages?
Would for example 1 of each resource, 1 diamond, and 50 winter coins nudge someone off the top spot? I personally see these as a nice "nudge" to try out the WInter event, it's a good offer that comes with small bonuses - but I'm not experienced enough with the event itself to say if these bonuses would change my chances of doing well. Hence - keep the comments flowing, this is highly interesting!
As you requested I did some calculations regarding this winter event.
I have managed to gain 1344 winter coins from quests (144 as a bonus from winter market level). And another 2441 winter coins from other sources (winter market, watching comercials, trading resource packages, random coins).
That´s a total of 3785 winter coins.
I was able to complete 47 runs which resulted in 202 diamonds.
This means on average it cost me:
80,5 coins per run or
18,7 coins per diamond
The biggest package for 20 euro was 7 diamonds, 350 coins and 7 x each resource. Prices for resources varied, so I would place the value of 7 x resource at 567 - 623 coins.
Therefore the total value of this package is about 56 - 59 diamonds.
Now to compare this to the event results, here is top 10 players, while top 6 is the 1% to get the 1000 career points:
1. - 273
2. - 260
3. - 241
4. - 226
5. - 224
6. - 209
7. - 208
8. - 202 (myself)
9. - 189
10. - 175
Most certainly I could have played a bit more and I cant claim for sure, that anyone bought the package. But had i bought the package, I would definitely end up in top 1%.
I do hope you will strongly consider not placing more P2W factors in this game. Otherwise I only did a bit of a marketing for you for free.
