    I did it's a bargain for the $200 should keep me going for about a year, so long as i resist the temptation to not coin things outright. First coins i have bought in about 6 or 7 months so.

    Coins are the Kixeye "fix all".  Thought they might have actually listened to the players about the need for a 2nd shipyard when they announced the OP7 upgrade that would allow upgrading of the Shipyard. But NO, we get more fleet weight to increase the build times per fleet, still restricted to just ONE ship at a time and ever increasing length of time.  So no thank you to the false "double coins" offer (only on the $200 premium cost).  I'll sit and wait and play the game less and less.  Far too many hulls already backed up and waiting for a Shipyard time to open to build them.  3 months per fleet is enough to mandate part-time play.  Cannot enjoy the game when you have to spend like crazy to have any hope of staying competitive.  "Double Coins" is just Kixeye telling all of us that only if you spend like crazy can you hope to have fun instead of drudgery.  And did I mention 10 hours to refit ONE Blade Missile onto ONE ship (you can do the math for an entire ship/fleet) while everything else continues to wait for Shipyard time?  "Coins".  Yes, that is the standard and ONLY answer we get from Kixeye.   No, not going to buy.

    Why would i want to purchase anything from a company that cant get things right from a company that still has major bug issues with it's game and seemingly ignores its customers?  Looks like nothing but a coin grab to me.  I will start purchasing coins again after kix fix's most of the issues.. Good luck Kix.

    Being a minimal, lately non, coiner this deal would never have appealed to me. However, the reason I am staying a non now is this is the first time I've actually thought the game was dying and is just money grabbing as a last gasp. Even if kix had maintained positive public relations, flash is being killed off, so the clock is ticking.

    I didn't actually buy any as I get paid mid month but I will take advantage of this offer if it happens again at a more convenient time

    Fundamental problems (repairs and build times) of the game still isn't fixed so unless the 100% extra free goes across the range of spenders ($10 to $100) then I'm going to pass on spending €180 on virtual money that could disappear tomorrow.

    At about 60% off, the $200 sale is the only one I'd consider a "sale" (the rest all come out to about 30% or less) for vapor tokens.  But, as I said elsewhere, Kixeye's recent history has stacked the cards against itself and at this time has made me unwilling to put that amount of money into the game in one go, so I'll forgo the offer at that price point.

    I did not buy this time, mostly because there has not been a long enough period of time of them doing the things I like. I am still shell shocked from the last time they went horribly wrong and then did a month of positive changes, which I responded with my usually spending. This time I am not rushing back in. I hope that Doomrooster takes this back to them, that even though I am happy with the changes this week (less content, and the gold sale) it needs to keep going to get me to open my wallet.

    With that said, quite a few in my alliance bought the $200 package. They have not purchased since the last raid, and this was too good for them to pass up. A few more people I know purchased the usually $50 that they would buy before the raid.  I would be surprised if this was not a good thing for the end of the year numbers.

    I look at it two ways. I took their offer and am now set for coins for the next few months at a reduced rate. Or if Kixeye shuts down BP because of the potential flash issues I can dispute the charges on my account for services not rendered for any of the unused coins.

    Since they did not stand behind their Facebook message and honour this offer, I felt deceived and cheated and did not purchase anything.  I am a big gold spender.

    Hey dumbass! For the last time it says that the BONUSES are doubled. Not the ENTIRE package. No go see a doctor to get your head examined.

    you wernt cheated it says gold bonuses the gold amounts look at the usual bonuses they have been increased, but still not enough to make me coin... let alone spend an insane amount of 200$ to even get the sale part out of this.i would spend 10$ for 200+ gold  if not 105 gold+ a few days worth of ship build tokens because why not 10$ is acceptable but defiantly none more unless some serious changes are made to the game.

    If the geniuses that planned that release had done it on or after payday, they probably would have gotten more takers. Never, ever do a short sale at the very end of the month, before payday. Simple economics there fellas. Should have waited until the beginning of the month. Kix wonders why they keep losing money, smh

    I bought because I am fortunate to do so.  I did ticket Kixeye on the horrible timing of it all.  I explained that after the first works for folks like me and other get paid twice a month.

    So , fellow pirates, send in a ticket stating the bad timing, ok?

    First I'd like to say I didn't buy because they haven't changed anything.  When I see real change I'll reconsider coining.  Now to disputing the charges , there is a 90 day limit anything after that amount of time you can't dispute.  If say FB stops supporting flash games at the end of December that will be almost exactly 90 days.

    Kix have given me no incentive to drop coin anytime soon, until they sort the game out I will be spending very little no matter how much extra gold they offer me. Actions not offers

    I like to coin the last few hours of researched and builds when I see they are going to complete while I am AFK so I like to have just a little coin available. Since I was down to 24 coins I went ahead and used the special to get 110 gold rather then buy later and only get 105 gold.
