IM Shop Card Slots

Edited by cuddle13 at 2015-1-7 21:55

I know variation of this has been suggested before but hear me out.

I think SH should increase the IM shop to contain 3 card slots (currently there are 2).
1 Slot should be dedicated to help beginners (King Rimmon, FA, Queen Vortex, etc)
The other 2 Slots should be the newer better UR cards (Lamia, Tefnut, Molten, King Cerberus, etc)

Also, the suggestion of "Refill" on top of "Refresh"
When you see a card you like, after you buy it, you can pay 200Gold? to Refill the card, then the amt of Gold needed to refill will increase after each buy, 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200, 6400, 12800 (for the high rollers). Refill counter is specific to each card... so if you were at 800 Gold for a particular card, even if you wait for that card to appear on its own again, the next time you want to refresh that card will start at 800Gold, not 200Gold.

Thoughts?!

I think it is win win.. SpicyHorse will have people spend more.. so why not?

I like the idea. Refill should start at 500g though. 500, 1000, 2000, etc.  We don't want everyone to have 8x a new card the first day it is released. That diminishes the value of earning cards during events.

i like your idea!  Especially the Refill option.  Waiting 2-3 weeks for an 8th card really sucks.

I totally agree about the need of a third slot: more and more cards are coming to IM shop, and it will be impossible to get any of those, if things stay like this.

About the refill option, I don't know honestly: completing a big UR in one go might be a too big advantage to buy with gold. Clearly you'd still need the virago to afford that, but it doesn't seem fair to free/low-paying players.

I am really looking forward to guilds, are we going to have a Guild Shop soon? With its own currency and its own URs to collect? It would be a big help about this matter.

I was thinking the 3 slots can also be 5500, 7000, 8000 virago cards...
The amt of gold for each refresh definitely need to be projected properly. Don't want to be too high but can't be too low. We definitely need to have the amt to grow exponentially so that it is very tough for anyone to purchase the 6 to 8 cards using refill if they don't have the card to start with.

Refill option should cost Virago :lol

But it is not much different than the event advantage UR cards when people can just spend gold to buy 8. I think as long as they adjust so that it will cost a LOT to refresh 7 times, it should be ok.

Imho 200 gold is good and then double it (400-800 etc). To avoid to diminish the value of earning cards during events we could set the chance to refill to 1 each day. This way the first nub with a bit of cash cannot buy 8x cards in only one day. So i buy a card today, i refill it for 200g and for today the card is sold out. Next time i see it if i wanna refill it i must spend 400g (and 800 or 1000g for the last refill). Seems fair to me.

What would you say about the Refill button becoming available only after you possess 4 copies of that specific card?
So when you are halfway (4/8), you can choose if you want to wait more, or just speed up the completion spending gold. At the same time, people couldn't complete a big UR starting from 0 in one day (which would be totally unfair in my eyes).

Also, this system would be an incentive to rank top 200 in events, because with 4 copies of the event card you will be 100% sure to be able to complete it when it comes to shops.
