  • Christmas Heroes Flashpack

    Is the price for this flashpack correct? It seems ludicrously overpriced when just 1 run on hard can net you the same rewards (if lucky admittedly) - 150 gems, is 13 refills - you'd get many times more heroes and gear doing the raid.

            It's more to measure intellect...
            Example: 2 cars parked side by side. Exactly the same in evey way. However one is marked $10k and one marked $20k. Surprisingly or not there are people who would choose the more expensive. This sales strategy is used everywhere with alarming effectiveness. Who doesn't like free money? Lmao

                Keep in mind not everyone is able to complete the Raid with efficiency. Additionally there are some people who simply do not have the time to sit and grind the Raid trying to get the heroes they want. The Flash Pack is intended for those for whom the Raid is not doable, or RNG is being unkind and not dropping the hero that is desired. We're not trying to trick or trap you - we are offering an alternative method of acquiring the heroes.

                That's the trade-off - you can spend your time, or you can spend your gems. The choice is yours. Not every flash pack is for every person. If it's not for you - don't call it a joke or a trap, just understand you're not the intended targeted audience, and move on.

                We wanted to make sure everyone had a chance to acquire all of the Christmas heroes before the Christmas in July PVP event goes live on Tuesday.

                  this only occurs when they offer more things for example if the 2nd car offers aluminum rims while the 1st metal this would cost more expensive but 10 k is a lot but that's how the sales advertising works

                  but this package does not offer anything new then there is no reason for it to have a high price if at least it offered 1 NEW HERO Christmas that is not available in another package would be worth it but it is not the case then it is well justified the indignation q cause

                  I was hoping to offer equipment that is not in the gem packages like the Templar armor but not

                    Please explain to me why there is "justified indignation" when we offer a flash pack that you don't want? Why are you indignant about it? Just because it doesn't appeal to you isn't a valid justification for getting indignant - it just means that you're not the targeted audience for the pack. If you don't like a pack, don't buy it, but there's no cause to get "indignant" about it.

                        Well this thread got side tracked fast - my point I was making wasn't the provision of the pack itself, as Lyeshal indicated if you need a pack then it's a useful pack to you, if not take a deep breath and move onto the next potential flashpack. My concern was the price of this particular pack, which seemed excessive for what you got. Normally, the prices for packs seems pretty on the mark for the "perceived worth". This one however just seemed a little nuts

                          I wonder if the perception would have been the same if the Wintersend Raid wasn't also running right now. Like, if that wasn't an option, would the gem price have made more sense?

                            I am sure that is a factor, however 195 gems for 1 legendary (of which none recently revamped and never used) and 1 epic / rare hero + 1 legendary gear isn't anything noteworthy unless you're a collector and have them missing. I will admit elfie sera has it's uses for the infrequent common rarity pvp events.

                            If the pack were 100 gems i'd probably wouldn't have commented

                              The primary value of the pack lies in the rarity guarantee of the gear. We understand the heroes are older, and we would have liked to have given a revamp prior to this event but we ran out of time. But again, if you're a collector and missing these heroes, the price could be completely worth it. It's really all a matter of perspective for who finds which packs appealing, and there are several factors we consider when pricing the packs.

                              For our Flash Packs, we always limit the gear to just the current Premium Catalog gear - which means when there's a pack like this with a Legendary+ guarantee, it's the newest gear available at a guaranteed high rarity.

You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                              To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


                              What happens if I break the rules?
                              At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                              Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                              For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                              Posting Suggestions
                              In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                              1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                              Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                              2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                              3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                              4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                              5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                              6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                              7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                              In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
