    Why no bonus for buying doubloons in bulk?

    Admiral’s Bounty it is, from here on out. Thank you for the helpful reply.

    Why Do you Play Destroyers (Diddys Quest To Understand)

    I like to capture the objectives in domination games. I had one game last night where I triple solo capped and came out number one on my team on the scoreboard, ahead of a guy that had four kills to my zero. i also like the feeling of sneaking into the enemy base and capping it, especially when the other team is ahead on kills.

    You are right, I am looking at this all wrong. Just because price breaks at various quantities exist everywhere in the physical world and have carried over to the digital world nearly everywhere else except here should not bother me. What I’ve got to do in the future is forget that the various packages exist, and just buy the 1,250 pack twenty times in a row. Thank you WG for saving me 19 cents and not inconveniencing me at all! Sorry for being a hater.

    It’s a VERY tiny win for players not willing to drop $100 bucks at a shot, against a sort of a middle finger to the “whales”. It makes me feel like they are saying “We take you for granted and think you are dumb.” In the meantime, there’s a strong disincentive to ever buy anything unless it is on special pricing, and even then you have to break out a calculator to determine what the best value is. it just irritates me because it goes against all conventional pricing practices. You buy a single can of soda, you expect to pay a bit more. You buy a case of soda, you expect to be paying less per can, not the same as or more than if you bought 24 separate cans out of the machine outside. I wouldn’t go back to the grocery store that tried to pull that on me. They’d make a ton more money if they had a limited daily offer where you could buy a small number of doubloons once per day at a substantial discount, with an even better discount for players who are on Premium time. If you want to get people into using doubloons, that’s the obvious way to go, not by penalizing the folks that are already opening their wallets for the game, imo.
  5. Buying doubloons has become a matter of waiting for special offers on package deals. The 25,000 doubloon package is not the best value any more. Wonder why they do that?
