@BlackZed @mrchief whether all this time on the S5 portal. there appears an offer of 700 coins = $ 9.98??

Checked my posts. Nothing like that to date.

It’s possible that it may be released towards the end of S5 Dunes, Day 3 or 4, as a Feel The Whatever Offer. I am basing my hunch on the latest trend to date.

Right now, besides S5 regular offers, there’s one offer in Web Store and T3 of Forgotten Treasures of Ice.

Good luck with your summons!

Lol.

Ok brother. Thanks for the information!!

D3 is the pure Dunes coins offer - you get 5 pulls for $5 (USD) and some battle items as goodies.

Beyond that, there isn’t a pure Dunes Coins offer yet. There are a few $100 offers in the past that offer Dunes coins plus some goodies (all subpar offers):

In addition, T3 of FToI is a good place to get Dunes coin because it is a plus value offer ($1 per pull plus gems), and you can stock up on challenge coins since the Challenge event will be coming up soon. With FToI, you must pay a gems tax and an unlock tax, which is unfortunate.

Offer: Lunar New Year Offers D3
Price: Varies

O1 S$6.98 / US$4.99

With the LNY event being much shorter at 18 days, the regular flow of offers have been modified to squeeze in as many combos as possible. It would not surprise me to see a 3rd tier eventually.

O2 S$148.98 / US$99.99

This offer used to have 5 ETTs, now replaced with 200x S5 Dune coins, effectively 2 summons. I am not sure if this change is permanent.

ETTs are 200 gems each. S5 coin pull is 350 gems.
2x S5 coin pulls => 700 gems
5 ETTs => 1000 gems
=> around 3 S5 summons => 1050 gems
Instead of being generous during the Lunar New Year Festive period, Zynga has decided to shortchange players by removing 300 gems value from this traditional seasonal offer.

It would have been nice if they had made it 300 coins, to give 3 summons. And bump up the value of this offer by 50 gems.

Superstitious folk of Chinese ethnicity believe that the number 3 is an auspicious number. The number 3 sounds like mountain (nature is important in Chinese culture). Mountain can have different significance, depending on the individual : growth, immortality (longevity), spirituality (“sacred manifestations of nature’s vital energy”). There’s loads to read on this topic.

If it had been 300 coins, Zynga would have appeared generous (yeah, 50 gems more) and at the same time imbue their organisation with “longevity vibes”. What’s not to like?!

The Details
D Blade/ Tome $8.50
EL 4AM (Darts) $7.00
4x 3AM $6.00
Value of AM = $21.50
Value of remaining items = $127.48

This offer coming on the heels of that astonishingly discounted Web Store Special Offer looks like a good portent of things to come. Or it could be a sign that Zynga needs to raise more funds, hence this unexpected value offer.

The Details
(3 summons) 300x ToL = 900 gems
(3 summons) 3 EHT = 900 gems
Value in Gems = 1800 => S$25.87 from Store
Discount 73%

Price per summon = S$1.163 / US$0.831

I think this is the lowest price per summon for small deals.

Would buy it but alas, LNY portal is suck. And TOL is suck as well.

I will buy. And then hold for more interesting ToL portal.

It’s a darn sight better than buying that US$29.99 ToL for 30 summons.

12 summons, saving US$0.168 each (at least) => US$2.00

That should get me a nice cuppa still.

Richard pack actually seems good

I bought that with alacrity just in case that 500 Challenge coins is a mistake, like Hamgate. Funded by the unexpected refund. :rofl::joy:

Ikr, 50 pulls is crazy. I’m saving it for phenexa when CF2 rolls around

The featured heroes are not that great, at least to me, but it is full of good heroes - C Hel, C Perseus to name a few. No other portal has blessed me with so many Dawas so I’ll save my coins for now - I don’t want to hoard all the Dawas myself after all. :rofl:

I find funny that there are two competing offers for 4 x $5 that net you either:

  • 16 EHT and 4 ETT (LNY)
  • 12 EHT and 120 Challenge coins (FtP).

Kinda difference, no?

But these combos will be apparently available only when there is seasonal + some other kind of event. Not that I mind, after Cyber Monday 1000 legend coins for $5, occasional 7 EHT for $5 which I didn’t see for some time and some Zynga store offer this one has the best pull to $ ratio.

Yes, it is. I had a good laugh when I saw the 2 competing offers, although these 2 offers may actually be appreciated by some spenders, who want to stock up on gold tokens.

It only needs 50,000 players to buy all 4x of that FTP offer, to generate US$1M. 50,000 is highly plausible out of about 900,000 active players.

The take up rate should be higher, maybe as low as 100,000 (US$2M) or as high as 200,000 (US$4M).

Multiply by 4 weeks => Low of US$8M to US$16M. Easy pickings for Zynga.
