  • Season 6 spend and get...

    Rule 4 of the seasons States:

    Trophies will not be sold and the only way to win is to place in tournaments...

    Spend and get says spend gems get trophies, sounds very much like selling trophies for gem.

    This is new to seasons six and as a non gemmer put me at a disadvantage, please can you explain why you how a contest that breaches your own rules?

    Thanks

          And

          It is common knowledge one person has already purchased 5000 and the first contest is not over. Good one.

            Wow. Just wow.

            I was feeling less than inspired by season 6. Now this spend and get for trophies event has made the season ridiculous. Seasons always favored gemmers but even those who dont gem or don't gem much could do ok if they were willing to put the time in. But now Kabam is violating its own contest rules and selling trophies? Even most the gemmers in 130 are disgusted and not planning to "pay to play"

                  i'm not competing in season6 either. The prize list itself already was discouraging...and this Spend and get... totally closed my door to enter this event.

                  Sorry to say kabam, but what a massive fail guys.

                  Please focus on balancing the troops tiers, so t4/t5/t6 aint useless anymore, release chapter 5 of campaign, and fix some known issues. i'm sure everyone would prefer to see that than yet another big event, with terrible prizes, right after season5 and inferno.

                  cheers.

                    Just rediculous

                    I am a gemmer. Have invested a lot of money into this game the past 3 years. After spending a good chunck of change on Inferno I was already frustrated with how soon this season started after it. The spend event is the last straw for me! Everyone gemmer or non gemmer is already at a disadvantage in a seasonal based on the server you play in. Some spend more. Some servers are dead. Buying trophies straight up is not "competing". Sorry i'm not sorry Kabam! You just lost a loyal paying customer!

                      Was going to compete til the spend and get. Is that a joke? Not competing anymore and will likely never click the green button again. Kabam just lost a good customer

                        Just for more lopsidedness, EU has a spend and get gems too. Double-dip action...

                          Sadly

                          As upsetting as this is its a loop hole in their rules. They are not actually selling the trophies because you get them whether you want them or not as long as you spend gems. I'm impressed by your business savviness Kabam but NOT by your logical thinking or common sense, no offense but did you really think people wouldn't see right through this nonsense? What you guys did is like putting an extremely explosive fuel in an engine to get more power out of it at the expense of destroying the engine completely. Oh well the prizes are not worth the hassle anyway. It will be an entertaining show for me at least.

                              Rule 4

                              I cannot agree that the "spend and get" does not technically violate Rule 4. It violates it literally. Rule 4 states:

                              "4. Trophies will not be sold and the only way to win the item will be through placing in tournaments."

                              The spend and get is not a tournament. Even if you believe it is not a "sale" (and I would disagree), it plainly violates the second part of the rule.

                              Respectfully,

                              Lohengrin
