Hello there,
So I bought myself the new feature: pay now - pick up later gimmick.
Pretty-good overall, but how come I received 1350 allowance on the first login?
Daddy WG should have dispensed 450 + 450  (bonus) no?

Did you have one of these +200% doubloon value coupons?

I have received no coupons from WG ever.

You are basically paying to WG to make you play their game.

I also received 3x450 doubloons. Maybe it's done so that you automatically catch-up with others who took up the offer earlier.  It could be a mechanism to ensure latecomers don't run out of time nearer the end of the offer

No, all you have to do is log in - you don't have to play at all.

Problem is, except premium time, there is not much to buy with them.

I just use them to buy the occasional ship slot and to speed up retraining when my captains move to the next tier ship. So, I like to have a small stash available, and this offer was too good to miss. :Smile_Default:

How do you get this offer? Logging in doesn't offer anything!

Where does pay now - pick up later come from?

You have to ask papa WG to give you this allowance. Don't spend it all at once!

There was an item on the Premium Shop - I ca'n't tell you what it was called as I've already purchased it.

 

There is this thread that was discussing it:

They are probably desperate, they do not atract new players, and old players like me have already bought whatever they need.

The OhVeggieQueen and Halloween containers are also crap so will not sell. The idiot protected MM, which does not atract new players, is instead screwing their tier 6 and 8 premiums sales.

So...

If that was the case, they shouldn't throw xp multipliers and credits left and right at us.

What do you want to buy? A burger?

You can buy premium time, which is the best thing to invest in. You can get one or several perma camos, which is the second best thing to get. You can demount modules, which, at least for the special modules, the 2M and 3M modules, is a no-brainer. If you are patient, you can get a ship, although I admit WG is a bit inconsistent in offering nice ships for real money but not for doubloons bought with that very same realy money.

I'd rather have a curry, but each to their own. :Smile_trollface:

All of it is true with some players. With others... Well if someone has 2mil FreeXP, 400 - 500 mil credits, hundreds of camos and flags, plenty 19p captains, what would they need Perma Camos or Premium time for?

Premium ships are the only thing out there, they would spend doubloons on. And - as you've noticed - it is not like there is great selection of them...

Blimey, there is nothing even to spend doubloons you earn just by playing the game...
