Panda, I am doing this in a new thread just for you.
The 5x200 gem offer is the best deal we see. I always take it, and I advised yoing players to take it as well.
Should we advise the fun to play folks, especially those near the bottom of our own alliances, to take it? I don’t like being a shill, but anyone with a 2* hero in their defense team will be better off immediately.
It is such a no-brainer to me it should have a spot in the player guides.
