See here’s the thing. There’s a whole brand new server they just opened. To the thousands of new people who don’t read the Kong boards, and aren’t aware of these issues – this might seem like a BRILLIANT idea to get a jump up on the competition and rule the server!
of course, this is because they know the new members will replace the old server 4 members. And just like servers 1, 2 and 3, when it slows down, they’ll just ‘merge’ them. Thanks for the money!
Once the people leave one server, all NEW people on the new server line their pockets.
It’s a business, but you have to wonder what their model is. Do they want to make a killer video game that people enjoy? Or do they run a video casino, where the big spenders get the best chances at the best stuff, until they run out, or get bored, and the next big spender shows up.
The OJ hero cards + gems, or the Red card plus gems, those are for the new players. Is it a coincidence that a new server just sprang up, right as they have a sale with prices that seem crazy – to someone who knows they can earn it. But not to someone who just started.
I started a new character on server 7. Level 10, and I’ve already got my first OJ hero. Not from a card, but from the Tavern. Why would I ever buy an OJ card, when I can just get one – eventually – from the auction house?
Because they don’t want to wait, they have the money, and it’s going to get them over whatever obstacle they think is in front of them. A new server means new money coming in. Once server 4 is dead, they’ll ‘merge’ it with a then dying 5 and 6, and the two old NEW servers, 8 and 9 will be mad at the new event because the prices will be OUTRAGEOUS, but server 10 will be smoking HOT and will replace the dying 5 and 6.
And so it goes.
