    No, I wouldn't define the wheel as the monthly promo. Not unless it was from the site only like last month. Your promo right now is Talisman pieces, that's what you get as a bonus for buying credits. 

    Hell when the wheel came around last September, there was a bonus to credit sales.

    The wheel is merely one more thing to spend the credits (that you purchase with real cash). And it is a gamble, get cool exclusive stuff? Or get mediocre crap (That also isn't mediocre to everyone, some people don't mind spinning a pet or mount)

    Eh.. Either way, just my two cents.

    I would probably buy collection caches from folks for 6 credits per.

    One thing to notice about the bound credits prize is that there are two with that name. One is 'Bound Credits' and one is 'bound credits'. I haven't differentiated between the two in my count. Most of the time when I get lowercase bound credits, it's between 10 and 15 credits, and uppercase has been as high as 49 for me. I hear people saying now they are getting 1 credit from it and that's unsettling.

    Here's a sample of bound credits amounts, @Sena
    32 18 20 27 35 36 48 35 38 12 12 14 13 11 18 13 40 39 13 42 18 12 38 15 12 49 13 37 14 20 27 41 41 43 19 30 13 11 15 45 29 15 35 15 34

    Upgrade credits I've seen have been between 15 and 35.

    Thorns tradein for 33.

    Lessons seems 200-250.

    Marked crates are mounts (wolf/bear) and mysterious crates are pets (weasel, lovebird).

    In that case, I'd estimate the average prize value of 1 spin to be ~28cr, or tradein value of ~20cr (~24cr if you still count lessons at normal value), based on Kez's 799 spins.

    So it doesn't seem that bad, as long as there are things from the wheel that you'd actually want to keep and not trade in.

    It's been mentioned, time and again, why game promotions should -not- be thought of as 'real world gambling'...but im honestly tired of bringing it up at this point :/ .


    I'll just go with something Sarapis once said about IRE sales:

    "We set a price and they paid for it, so it stayed"

    It didn't really stay, though. What comes out of the wheel changes often. The last change saw a sharp decrease in spin frequency.

    The wheel right now isn't the monthly promotion though (at least not the main one). It's just something extra, where there's no problem with having a negative expected value.

    The wheel now and the wheel last month are very different things.

    Current promotion is spins for bound credits so it doesnt always represent a RL cash investment

    Out of 100 credits (4 spins), I got minerals, some lessons, and raffle (or maybe racetrack) tickets. I'm not at all disappointed, really. While I was hoping for something like one of the item prizes, I still got -something-, which is good when you have to pay for spins.

    If you're mainly looking to come out ahead or break even with spins, might as well just save them until you see that 500cr prize announcement.


  • CaelanCaelan Member Posts: 610 ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
    I spun and didn't get the 500cr!   @Makarios can you fix this broken system?

    That's why the best way to be a CL is to make a minion do paperwork for like an hour while you raid for 7 days.

    Because burnout is bad. Burn heretics, not your own resolve!

    Fixed that for you.

    Look, if you really wanted to apply for Targossas you have to do it in game. Can't just list your credentials on forums :/
