bro i have around 5k blue crystals and i just spent 15€ in the game, and i dont think i need to explain you what i bought with them… at least this game its letting you buy almost everything in the item shop with in game currency…
It’s a legit complaint when the window of play time falls upon where the maintenance, hot fixes and update downtime takes place. It may only be 4 or 8 hours. But that’s an entire day for some people. Considering there has been at least a weeks worth of downtime this past month, that’s a week of aura wasted.
Maybe because most of us have an extreme excess of crystalline aura due to being smart with the currency exchange / crystal market or simply having IRL jobs such that we don’t really feel attacked or disregarded for 8 hours of crystalline aura.
The game hasn’t been out for long, so as expected it will have a lot of downtimes during the first few months. You chose to use your Crystaline Aura during this period in which you knew would have downtimes.
Smilegate and AGS owe you nothing, if they choose to compensate you for your own actions then it’s on them but they really don’t need to do so.
When you go get a glass of water and a droplet of water misses the cup and goes down the drain, do you demand compensation from your water provider? As you have paid for that droplet of water but didn’t get to drink it.
It just comes down to valuing your money. Sure it is not a lot. But it is there. Might be a newer gamer type thing. These are the same people that are happy with paying to be beta testers for new games until they buy a 2nd game of the year edition.
