I have been playing Empires & Puzzles since 3 months and reading threads and discussions in these forums since 2 months. More or less. And what I have read amazes me much.
Of all subjects that I have read about here, the one that fascinates me most is the various ways of complaints that can be brought up. Complaints about getting 4* and 5* heroes. Or better said: not getting them.
People in this forum tend to believe that if they pay for virtual diamonds in the game, they will have more chance to get a 4* or 5* hero. And the more they pay, the more rights to earn a high valued hero.
I think it is ridiculous. Logarithms that control the game are not influenced by the amount of money spend by a player. I really don’t believe that. The only thing you, paying players, are buying is is some extra gamble, an extra chance to receive a high valued hero. You can compare it to buying tickets for the local lottery. Buying a lot of tickets doesn’t give you the right and neither the guarantee, for the first and best price. It only buys you an extra chance.
And likewise… buying virtual diamonds in the game doesn’t buy you happiness and luck.
I read posts here in this forums from people who spend 500 to 1000 dollar or euro in a day. Only in this game. I tell you: this is the amount of money I have to live for a month… paying all expenses and food. And what are you buying? A win? A drawn figure on a virtual card that we call a hero? Happiness?
I am not going to judge that. That’s all each to their own.
All that I am saying is: don’t let them fool you.
Logarithms are not made by Euro’s and Dollars. I never pay a single cent or dime on any game. I just collect the virtual diamonds that I get as a reward for any achievement in the game. And when I have saved them up, I spend. And my chances - based on level, TC’s level and all that, are as big or small as they are for any paying players. They just don’t happen as often.
Just here comes patience around the corner… And the trick of just being satisfied with what you did get, not what you could have got if… There’s just two options. Play and enjoy, or play, don’t enjoy and complain and whine about it. I prefer the first option, just because I play the game to entertain myself.
