    Here's my genius idea. I bought the iTunes cards individually until I reached $50. I didn't go out and buy the $50 card, I bought multiple cards. Then when I reached enough to get the $50 donut amount, then I cashed out. You can do the same thing with the Google Play cards. No one is forcing you to save up the cash all at once. It can be a gradual thing. You don't have to spend it, or even redeem it until you need it.

    I didn't say I was smarter because of it.

    But when you are trying to throw out words like intellectual, comprehension and words of that sort but have every other word misspelled you look like a goof.

    I'm also on a touch screen phone but don't seem to have the same problem as you.


    Why wouldn't you want the other member to mention the conversation if he declined if you weren't on the up and up? Seems fishy to me

    because my inbox literally had over 70 requests for my help to give them eggs and if he told people i helpdd him then i would have even more anx it was too muxh people to help out. also u probably dont have the same provlem becase u either proof read or just text less recklessly. i think its clear to see that my comprehension of the english language isnt lacking. just my willingness to correct typos.

    Okay, how about we just start fresh, forget about all that stuff before?

    The point you are trying to make was that you believe that in game currency should be cheaper and that you dislike paying as much as you do for in game content, correct?

    I agree, I feel like the donuts are very expensive and have notice a steady price creep on items in game as well, though I understand why they're as expensive as they are. They do give us a ton of free donuts from time to time though, at least that's something right?

    a great point but i feel like if theyd lower the price thy will see an increase in people who buy donuts so it should just about even out in the ed

    in closing i will just say its not a matter or whether or not you can afford it but rather whether or not it meets its value to have a springfield you like is worth it to you then I tip my hat but still disagree. and if paying between 2 and 3 hundred dollars (amount varies by person of course)

    People have been complaining about the pricing from day one. And my answer has always been; you don't want to spend money, you don't spend money. But still people complain. Why? You can play it for free. The premiums, as you said before, are just digital graphics. Why does it bother you so much. If people want to spend their money on coffee, cars, books, music, movies or whatever. It's their choice. But I understand you. I have my eye on this Bugatti Veyron. But why is it so expensive?

    PS; 210€ = 275$ . Been playing for 10 months now. Still have enough donuts left. So for entertainment value. Not that bad.

    I guess rallying for reduced prices we can all benefit from was foolish of me. What ever was I thinking? What a bunch of idiots. The price will never go down because a bunch of snotty people like you think you should either lie there and take it (not surprising) or completely miss out on the content. I sure do love freedom of speech though

    This quote is from page 2. The point where I stopped reading.
    I agree with your point that the donuts are too expensive and I think most people would agree. However, your bad attitude and pi$$ poor grammar make you seem like a ranting a$$hole so people don't care what you say and/or are trolling you for entertainment.

    I feel like from a business perspective that's the sort of move they'd make when the game is on its last legs and demand isn't so high. We do get the occasional Gil deals as a sort of midway option.

    I suppose every dark cloud haz a silver lining. I suppose to them they would probably agree about the business perspective but i think a lot of people underestimmate the huge crowd a great value can attract (not to say it doesnt have a crowd already). For example I know of a few artists who have put out free mixtapes which gained them a massive fanbase so when they actually did come out with a retail album it managed to go gold and even platinum. i wish they would hold a crazy promotion. word of mouth and the internet are extremely powerful marketing tools when you combine them

    you talk about business...

    principle of business --> supply VS. demand


    23mill, top grossing game... CLEARY there is demand at the current prices, continue the supply.

    to reduce prices at a time you are a peak sales is business ****....

    Actually buinesses do it all the time and called them Promotions and sometimes tue promotions are so wildly successful that they keep it permanently...nobody is arguing that there is demand so im not sure what the purpose of your comment is. If you are trying to criticize I suggest you come back with something that has merit.

    Firstly, this is a debate. Stop being a child a making this personal with name calling a snide remarks.

    Secondly, maybe if sales dipped, BUT they make record sales and the top grossing iSO game.


    you do not reduce prices at a time you are getting record high sales......

    There have been many sales where premium items have sold for a reduced price....they also had the donut sale, which gave extra donuts in each category....

    This needs to be locked tbh.
    Its gone far enough.

    There are the following:

    People who reluctantly pay loads,
    People who are happy to pay loads,
    People who pay a little and are happy with that,
    People who dont pay anything,
    People who dont pay anything and get it all for free,

    It doesnt matter which one you are, just play and enjoy the game, spend your money how you want and that is all there is to it. Nobody can and should not tell anybody what to do.

"that would be ****" if you cant post a mature response then what would possess you to think you deserve one back. i simply stated a fact im sorry if you are too sensitive to handle it. please reveal your sources that states they are getting "record high sales" at this point in time otherwise ill assume you made it up.
