  • Question for fellow F2P

    A question for my fellow F2P HoDA-ers: can you think of a feature, hero or gear, or anything else that you would consider breaking your f2p status for? I know that many of us have spent a bit here and there on particular events or flash pack heroes, but those are pretty sporadic.

    And a similar question— if you were a dedicated f2p player once before, what finally made you decide to spend on the game? The vaults? Onslaughts? Desire to complete the catalog?

    I was thinking about this because I personally am not swayed by new heroes and gear— with a complete catalog I figure I’ll get them eventually. However, one thing that I would drop money on is inventory space, which got me wondering what else the community of f2p would enjoy seeing.

    I dropped coin when the Wonders of Thedas packs were first around. Getting a very high chance to get supergood toons when gcp’s didn’t have guarantees then was awesome. I still remember the euphoria of pulling dragon morrigan!

    Since then, by just playing the waiting game I’ve managed to accumulate abt 8k gems, and an almost complete catalogue (except for the latest few releases)

    Probably might drop a few bucks for a tome pack(5-10 tomes for 2-5 dollars maybe? To support the team since I haven’t spent any money since. There’s isnt much point for me to buy more gems since I’m on an 8k stash.

    Just a friendly reminder. Lyeshal has mentioned 800 is the hard cap for inventory. Due to performance issues for the various high/low powered devices out there.

        I agree, I would spend my money on inventory space.
        Other thing I would spend my money would be for improving the guild chat and guild options.

            Inventory space is not on the table. At all.

            For the other thing - there's the catch-22. If you would spend money to improve guild chat and guild options, that's not a thing that you would be able to spend money on in-game after it's been done. It's something we would need upfront spending on so we could have the resources available to make that improvement.

            So long as there's a mindset of "I'll spend money when this feature is implemented", it's a losing uphill battle for us. For us, it's more "we'll implement this feature when players are spending enough for us to hire the proper resources we need".

            I've not kept it a big secret exactly how small our team is. There's only so much we can do with the people we have. You want to see new features? You've gotta front it. We can't give you new features at the pace you'd like to see them (or sometimes even at all) unless there's the ability for us to pay the people who can do those features.

            If you want to see improvements to existing features, you're gonna have to pay for it first - not wait for us to implement it and then spend money on it - especially not something that's not particularly monetizable, such as an improved guild chat and guild options. There's not a way to put in a pay-feature for something like that.

              Back in the day when Fen was meta, I admit I nearly broke my F2P streak to get a 2nd Red, White, and Blue FP and guaranteed Fen. I didn’t as it turned out, but the struggle without him (in the PG that just started paying out gems) from that point was very real for a while .

                I must have missed that thread—haven’t been able to make it onto the forums as much recently. But I do appreciate knowing what is firmly off the table and what is perhaps precariously balances on the edge :P that’s a pretty impressive hoard you’ve built up :P

                Tome packs would be cool and worth a few bucks. But as far as heroes are concerned unless there was someone who was exclusive to purchase I can’t see myself spending cash on a hero.

                  I had a look through my Google Play order history, and sorry to say CG but I have been quite stingy :P I spent $2 back in January 2014, which I believe was for an epic hero (times were different then). Then $5 in 2015, $9 in 2016 and $1.50 a couple of months ago.

                  Now I feel kinda bad for spending less than an hour's pay for the likely thousands of hours I've played.

                    I broke mine for the first time when the WoT packs came out, and Cole was the new hero that I got I think that was WoT...I think that was when the team was working on the GCP guarantee revamps

                      Me too, I was very tempted to buy a FH pack too and it was very difficult to play HoDA for me the next months wihout him lol
                      I think players with spend more in SSM, KA and THO packs, most of players don't have dupes and they need them to compete. I would spend my gems to buy some SSM and THO dupes.
                      Other desirable and useful heroes are kitty, FB, AL, Xenon and EGN new players need them.

                        Yup, those were it. WoT got me DM and GB, two other huge missing pieces at the time.

                          Might be an unpopular opinion but Its really hard to encourage paying when all the most competitive (Meta PG grade) heroes/ gear are available for free and grindable or being generally distributed to the player base through frequent flashpacks so most players already have multiple of (KA, THO, kitties ect). Strong heroes which is also really hard to get like ssm are the cash cow for the game so there should be more of them (other than ssm ofc) to help encourage spending. They should have power and usefulness equal to their extreme rarity too (which is not the case for ssm even now)

                            Hmm, that is a good point. I do remeber a time when you could tell who the whales were in the game because of their amazing teams. Nowadays as you said, dupe ssm is a good tell, but she’s just one of a number of meta teams.

                            I think it would definitely be a good move to have more exclusive heroes to those willing to shell out the cash for it. But I’m personally not one to spend on a hero like that since I don’t really care about being top dog in PG or GW. I’m hoping to brainstorm some unique features or additions that would encourage those who have never spent to suddenly want to.

                              I used to be big spender and enjoy doing so to support game but I see little sense in spending if you can get same stuff for free.I believe if you spend you can get unique things only available for purchase.Thats why I suggested about vaults also grant a unique raid event.This is no dis for f2p but in order to support game people must spend.There needs to be incentive!

                              What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                              It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. 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.
