Each week I ask you guys a question and you have to answer to win the card. I always read them all but don't always reply. You have to answer the question or you won't be in the draw. I don't care what you say but it has to be an answer that makes sense. Trying to avoid bots.


What do you think of the new pack price of $4


The giveaway is only on hive.


I was a little bummed due to play to buy 2000 of them now I can only buy 1000 of that money that I got for selling some cards. Still, that seems like a nice set of rewards. But the more I think of it I like it. The new rewards cards showed us that sometimes they will make cards that are like the old ones. To protect the old set value I think we need a higher price pack. Sorry might not seem fair for new players but should help the value of your cards also.


What card can you win this week?

The Venari WaveSmith seem to be the most popular of the rare cards so you can maybe win one for free

The new price makes sense in order to combat inflation.

Thanks for the giveaway! @mcgilli

I was disappointed by the $4 price, but only because they had previously kept repeating that they wanted to keep it close to the previous $2 price. It's not a huge deal to me though. I was only going to be able to buy a small number of packs anyway, so now that has just been reduced slightly. The majority of my cards were always going to be bought/rented from the market.

I think the price increase was necessary for the game economics.

The change of the price looks like a measurement to balance the economy, so is ok to me @amaillo-m

As someone who likes money, I dislike it greatly and feel they should just give me 1000 packs, a title and a handful of airdrops. As an acknowledged amateur, armchair economist I must confess that it is what it is and someone hopefully much more knowledgeable than me has come to the conclusion that it is necessary and appropriate. @magooz

I'm less concerned about the double in price as I am the reduced value for said price. Collection Power on the cards is 1/2 normal foil and 1/4 for gold. Combined with the doubling of price, the cards work out to 1/8 the value compared to Untamed packs. Even more worrying than that though is this voucher system that they intend to keep in place even after the pre-sale finishes. This voucher system effectively all but locks out anyone who isn't a maverick and/or a whale. Ultimately, this does more harm than good and is completely discriminatory against newer players who don't have the ability to easily enough acquire SPS to stake anywhere near as cheap as the mavericks did by virtue of being in the right place at the right time.

I get why they increased the prices per pack, but as a new player Im still somewhat disappointed that I won't be able to buy more packs because of this

Oh gosh, I haven't won this card in any of my chests thus far T.T

I don't mind the $4 price tag, or even 1/2 the burn value, my real concern is with vouchers continuing beyond the pre-sale, which kind of holds new players hostage, and creates this sort of unusual middle-man system where "Okay but WE'RE only charging $4" but also if the vouchers make packs suddenly $10, $12, $20, then shrugs

It's kind of like how Wax Sales get bought out by bots and resold at exorbitant prices and they're like "Oh no, we tried. Look at our numbers though cuz of this"

I don't mind the price at all. It will raise the value of the cards a bit.

One pack for $4 is cheap if the price of one DEC or SPS becomes $5. 😋 We just have to enter DEC/SPS into various exchanges markets such as Binance, Coinbase, Kraken, etc before the packed sale starts.

I wasn't around here before (been playing for less than 2 weeks) so the $4 per pack isn't strange to me.

When they said they are thinking of raising the prices I was hoping the max would be $3 so yeah $4 is a bit of a letdown.

I think the price adjustment makes sense. Not so sure about the voucher system though, don't really like how vouchers are required to buy packs even at public sale.

Frankly even I'm disappointed by the $4 price myself. But it's just my personal opinion. I did not study the economic of the game to really understand if it's good or bad. Hopefully they did.

A little disappointed, but I guess with the game being so popular it's a good time to increase prices a bit from the official store end. It should also make the cards more valuable, in theory, where they would otherwise be worth less due to the decrease in power compared to previous sets. The voucher system is also interesting. I've got enough SPS staked that I'll actually be getting some (in theory), unlike a LOT of players, but not sure how many packs I'll actually be able to afford without selling SPS, or using the DEC that's getting me the SPS.

I'm not necessarily happy about the increase, but I suppose it was inevitable. Slightly more concerned about the "vouchers" system.

I think 4$ is well thought out price to support the cost needed to improve server quality since we are experiencing an unprecedented player base increment. But this means we have to fork out more money to buy packs. Sadness ensues.

I'm more annoyed by the voucher system, which will create a secondary market and additional prize for a pack :(

Anyway I would love to own a Venari WaveSmith. I believe it would bring me out of Bronze league, hope I will win it ;)

I don't have any complaints about the new price. I trust the Devs and I think they're making the right decision.

The increase in price makes sense to stabilize the game economy. What would be troubling is the decrease in card collection v and the new voucher system since it acts like an entry barrier for new players and give a lot of benefit to whales and krakens. They said that those who staked their sps for a long time will benefit from this but if you are a whale you can stake those sps during the time that they will give out vouchers and still earn the most voucher than someome who staked sps since day 1 of sps launch. Incentivizing old players/whales too much will demotivate new players from entering the game which will cause a huge problem in the future.

It's unfortunate for new players who don't want to spend a lot,
however it's probably still a good value deal and may have been necessary due to the game's growth and new players and bots influx.

I actually agree with the increase in price for the Chaos Legion packs. What bothers me is the voucher system. This heavily favours the whales and early adopters, effectively keeping the power balance even more one-sided than it already is.

Looking forward to getting some packs, should be fun opening them. Increasing the cost at least allows for a little value to be kept in them. Will have to see what happens from here.

I'm ok with price. I imagine the card will go on the market much cheaper. I was more dissapointed with the amount of sps needed to accumulate tickets.

I think the devs tried to balance things without destroying the game's economy. I heard that if it is too cheap, people will burn the cards and use the DEC to buy more cards which will create a big trouble for the game. If it is too high like twice the $4, it might stifle the game's growth.

So I think $4 is a reasonable price, what I just don't like is the Pre-sale vouchers. It might add further costs to small time players like us.

I don't have a problem with the pack price, only with the vouchers system. Paying 4 bucks for pack is alright, their reasoning makes sense, but those vouchers will surely be way more expensive because you need a lot of staked SPS to get them. I guess I'll have to wait until pre-sale is over to finally buy packs.

Still a bit confused to be honest how to feel about it. But maybe if it cost $4, it might be worth it.

Thank you for the giveaway!
Not a huge fan of the price increase. It might be fine if it didn't have the voucher system to go along with it, the combination will make it annoyingly expensive for us newer folks to get in on the airdrops.

I find the increased cardprice... okay. What I find worse is that there seems to won't be a fixed DEC amount per pack, anymore. :/

was really hoping for max three usd, as every price bump means same investment but less cards, just like in your case.. been busy last days and havent heard the ama, so cant really express my opinion.. can u perhaps elaborate on what do you mean by "protecting the old set value"? isnt bigger competition of the same thing bad for pricing? will the market keep hot & pretty cards at same (lowered) cost? just thinking out loud, cheers mate! ign: dusi

4$ + voucher isn't near 2$ but I initially thought they would go 20 times as much packs. At least new player can get reward cards much cheaper this time.

$3 per pack pricing would have been easier to digest but I do understand the intent of the increase and hopefully this does bring some balance long term. @extraeliel

I believe the new pack price will be worth it when we look back to this change a few months from now, once we will all hopefully realize the effects on the game economy for the better.
