Oil repairs cost driving and pushing players to quit.
Many players have express their discontent by the fact of oil repairs going up about double of what it used to cost. Many have voiced their discontent and yet KIXEYE has refused to even offer a good reason for that other than "resources are scarce" Please KIXEYE, learn from the fail of other games such as Game of Wars and Mobile Strike. They are doing the impossible to retain their players, specially the spenders. I stopped playing Game Of War frustrated by their greed and tired of being treated like a ATM. Started playing this game and enjoy how fun IT WAS. Now, I can only play 10 mins a day if I am lucky. There are many things that need to be fixed in this game but the main one should always be to keep your spenders happy. Lower the cost of oil, give more gold per dollar and stop messing up with your players in battle matching.
These are the "Addicts" these are the players that these developers are trying to bait and keep, they $pend money without question, and developers take training in these gambling triggers and exploit these players for their own bottom line . Most of us do not fall prey, but those who can't help but scratch the itch justify their spending by saying things like.. " I can only afford $20 a week"
This is the fact, these games are being tailored to keep the addicted spender spending because they lack the ability to walk away... So when us grinders complain they really don't care because we don't spend as much as those players.....
Now there is an argument for gamer loyalty and allowing grinders to grind, but now you have a larger gamer load and require many more servers and over head.. OR you can just cater to the spending crowd keep lower overhead and still pay the bills... If your the business owner how would you proceed.. Easy to say you do this or that but when its your livelihood on the line your perspective changes considerably.
But as it stands right now it would be hard for me to make another purchase. Way to much P2P for equipment. I can grind out the critical cards but can't earn equipment worth crap. Then there is my issues with outposts not being worth the effort / oil used, and of course the oil in general is ridiculously low
I understand your thinking in regards to the business model, more small purchase but its quite obvious that these freemium games are catering to a crowd of bigger spenders because there is enough whales and addicted spenders that brings in more than the nickel and dimers do in the long run.
Kind of like politics. The biggest money donators get the most influence... and the USA is a mess because of that reality
Obviously from what I am reading they keep choosing the opposite direction
