Ok, little birdies. It’s time to let your songs be heard. We’ve all tried reasoning with Rovio but obviously words aren’t effective. Perhaps we should try to put it into a language they will understand (numbers). There have been a lot of changes to the game lately, or rather, nerfs. Boss pigs in scout battles (non-event) seem to be less. Premium chests from those boss battles seem to be less. And of course, the odds of getting a silver ticket from those premium chests are basically slim to none. I say “seem to be” because I don’t have numbers to prove it. I simply don’t have the time to collect data like that. But it’s very obvious that it is happening. Now, they’ve jacked with Major Pecker’s daily challenge as well. MPDC was our main way of obtaining silver tickets since they messed with the premium chests. Conveniently, the one free run we now get ends after wave 7, stopping for some just shy of required snouts to earn the silver ticket. Coincidence? I think not. (I’ll not even address the fact that they are doing more “testing” similar to the scout timer fiasco with some folks having different arena and adventure rewards… that probably deserves its own post and poll.) It is blatantly obvious that Rovio are manipulating us and pushing us to see how far they can go before we break down and start buying gems and pumping them full of cash. They are downright insulting us, at this point. Now, to some of us, that’s fine. Some have a lot of disposable income and don’t mind spending. Kudos to you, you’re winning at life. Some of us are comfortable in life and can spend a little here and there. Some of us are struggling to pay utilities or put food on the table. All walks of life, that all enjoy playing this game and hope for a positive, fun experience. I’m just curious as to where we all stand as far as that spending is concerned. Rovio is obviously very curious as well. Not sure why they couldn’t just ask us, so I will. Please vote, and let’s tell Rovio what they so desperately want to know. To spend, or not to spend? That is the question.
