The big bundles are fantastic, but most of us can’t afford to drop $100-500 on an impulse purchase. Where are the sales for those of us who can only afford to spend $5-45? Us cash-strapped players would love to be able to splurge once in a while, but 15% off 90 days of premium just doesn’t cut it. Even outside of Black Friday, most sales are of ship bundles that require spending $50+ to actually save any money on anything. It makes sense to try and entice people to spend more money on your game, but it’s hard to feel like I can get good value on anything under $50 most of the time. It would be great if there were more options for people with small wallets or who don’t know if they want to invest a lot of money in the game yet. Here are some ideas for less expensive bundles and sales you could offer for those of us who can’t drop tons of cash all at once: Bonus doubloons based on amount purchased. A month or so ago, there was a deal to get bonus doubloons if you bought with a credit or debit card, and the bonus percentage increased as you spent more. This is what enticed me into first spending money on the game, and got me to spend $20. Just run this special all the time!!! It’s far easier than trying to choose between the selection of gold and credit packages that are in the store now. Sales on the base ship itself. Most of the time, if you want to actually save money you had to spend above and beyond the base price of the ship. It’s very uncommon to see the base price be discounted at all. Big sales like Black Friday would be ideal times to put a number of ships on sale in their base configuration, and not just make bigger bundles. Bundles of low tier ships. Why should I spend $12 on a tier 2 premium if I can get a tier 7 Sims for $25? Most people are going to save their money for the higher tier ship. But a bundle of the low tier ships could be interesting in the $12-20 range. It wouldn’t cannibalize sales of the higher tier ships because they just don’t earn as many credits, but it could be an attractive buy for someone who can’t afford a money machine or who doesn’t know if they are willing to invest that much money into the game yet. Sales on smaller premium time purchases. Why only put 90 days on sale? Why not 30 or 14 or 7? Of course the savings should scale, but is it really too much to ask for more options in the $5-20 range? TL;DR: WG should put stuff on sale for a wider variety of price points, especially in the <$20 range.

User Skyhye posted a topic General Game DiscussionJust wondering if I should start saving now if there will be sales and/or ships giving. I saw the November missions posted today but not anything about sales. Just seeing if anyone knows. Thanks and take care, -Skyhye
