R2Games openly shamelessly cheating players

Hey guys, it seems that R2Games has started to openly and shamelessly cheat players with their sales information, which is really a surprise for me – why would you lie to your own paying customers? This is a very bad business decision and will damage them for sure. As someone who promotes Wartune for already 2+ years (even though R2Games treated me like dirt) this makes me feel ashamed in their place.

So what did they do? 

They launched something called “Recharge Gift Pack” which is currently running in-game, where you have to recharge balens (a.k.a. pay money) to get a bonus package.
Immediately on page 1 you see the option of recharging 1000 balens, for which they give you a bonus pack of 1 sylph equipment enchantment pack + 5 mahra + 10 sepulcrum + 100k gold.
The problem is though that they claim in big letters that this pack is valued at 4999 balens and this is a huge lie, and a very obvious one at that! So I am going to break it down just below how much exactly this pack is worth both in official retail price and in market price:

5 Mahra

The official game price (a.k.a. Retail Price) for Mahra in Wartune is 35 balens (picture below), so 5 Mahra would cost 175 balens.

That said the amount that people are willing to pay for this when it is on sale (a.k.a. the Market Price) is more like ~10 balens (so 50 balens for 5).

10 Sepulcrum

Sepulcrum has exactly the same price as Mahra so for 10 this would be 350 balens at retail price or 100 balens at market price.

100k Gold

100k gold in the current stage of the game and in the context of recharging 1000+ balens has no value at all. It is just a shiny decoration. But ok, let’s call it 10 balens just to give it something.

1 Sylph Equipment Enchantment Pack

Just one pack, although they made it look really cool for an unknown reason, contains simply 3 Magical Moonlights and 3 Glints of Magic. This is enough to click on the enchant button just 1 time (+ you have to pay a lot of gold) and it does not even guarantee success. So how much does 1 press of an enchant button cost? I’ll be really generous and say the same amount as a sylph enchant button with mahra, so 35 balens for 3 Magical Moonlights and 3 Glints of Magic or 1 Sylph Equipment Enchantment Pack.

Conclusion

Retail price conclusion = 175 + 350 + 10 + 35 = 570 balens! Not 4999!!!
Market price conclusion = 50 + 100 + 0 + 10 = 160 balens

So shame on R2Games for lying to their paying customers! and especially during Christmas / New Year holidays.

I hope they wake up from this dirty strategy and build a business based on respecting their customers.

P.S. some people might say this is the fault of 7Road and not R2Games, but it is R2games who runs the European / Western operation and therefore it is their responsibly / fault.

P.P.S. by the way, other levels are also not honest; I am not going to analyze every recharge level, but here are the pictures and you can see that yourself. For example 5000 balens, which they claim is valued at 9999 balens is just at most 3000 balens.

  1. First off this is not a big surprise! i am not sure how many player ever pay attn to others and watch the chat. but think about this the top player in any server that you play on will tell you that they are also the top player in other servers as well. not a big deal unless you know how they get to 1st place. It may or may not shock you.

    Listen up all you paying players that spend hundreds trying to gain the top spot on these games from overseas. when the server first opens and you spend a few hundred to capture the top spot enjoy it for the 2-3 days you have it. Why you may ask because within 72 hours of the server going live a site employee will start their account with unlimited in game money.

    I know you think it does not make sense but think about this. you have spent a few hundred dollars to get into 1st place ( because you like the game but really do not have the time to play it ). so now the site places a employee there. Again you may ask why. that is easy there was a study done and they found out that getting player to jump to new servers would make more money for their companies.

    I know it does not make sense but they actually make enough off doing this that they can pay people to sit at a desk and play numerous games at a time because those player that feel the need to be in 1st place will move to a new server once they have lost 1st place and feel they can not regain it without spending way more than they want to.

    This is what the site wants you to do. you already proved you will spend a few hundred on a new server to capture 1st place. so if they can force/trick you into jumping to a new server then more than likely you will spend a few hundred more on the next server.I know it is underhanded to do this but greed will do that. the companies that use this sort of tactics is really no worse than the players that spend the hundreds on a game just so they can get ahead.

    so want to fix this problem?

    here is a solution for those of you that do not mind spending a few dollars but refuse to spend hundreds on a game that could close the day after it opens and you lose all that money.. don’t say no way it has happened before

    when you start on a new server stop allowing all the big time spenders into your guilds clans or groups. all you are doing when you allow them to join you is helping them grow stronger. Just like in real life if you allow them to use you as a stepping stone trust me they will. a guild of one can not do much and putting them all in the same guild will never happen because they will never get alone.

    I have played way to many games and seen it happen time after time the big spenders will start fighting with each other because they feel that since they spent so much they should be in 1st place. and the sad thing is that one of them is just a employee of the site and will do what they can to get the other players to jump to a new server.

    now once these big spenders stop trying to catch a players with unlimited resources the site will start merging servers together the fewer paying players they have the more servers that get combined together.

    Once all the big spenders are gone the site will announce that they are gonna close the game down. Now if you really like the game do not worry it will return in about 2-3 years. of course you will have to start over from the start again. so if you are ok with that then join it again or look for a game that is about the same that is USA based.
