    I am one of those making a big "stink" about the cost increase.

    That's a difference of 7,350,000.00

    I know what you are saying about the gradual increase at every level, but these toons have been out for a month+ and now they want to gouge prices. BS!
    It's not actually a bug just because they rush and don't properly test or check new and updated game material. If everything Nav/NF puts out is just going to change weeks after it's released, then how can we buy with confidence if we can't trust them?
    We spend ridiculous amounts of real life time, SoT, Ironite, evo materials, awakening frags..... And now 3x increase of gold.
    It was already seemingly not worth it to max out. This just adds to the problem.
    Yeah, I'm making a big stink.
    It just seems since Navigator took over, we have seen absurd amounts of unresolved issues, while cramming more empty flare in the game. It's just a game.... I can't say it's fun anymore. And I have defended this company and their need for revenue..... but piddly crud like this is just being mean.

    Funny thing is, the Awakening prices actually decreased with each step in the evolution. The first Awakening level cost the most in gold originally!

    And to add insult to injury, there was no warning on this one - first I heard about it, I checked, and the price for final awakening had already risen by 7,350,000.00.

    The DEVS could have given us a *** WARNING *** with big bells and klaxons that we had a week (or even a day) to increase if we were going to. That way, we could have gotten it sorted - for example, I wouldn't have taken time off from grinding LoL XIV to do 5 runs of Airstrip in order to finally get the new Eddie. Instead, no, a big increase (after I'd already spent the higher costs up to Level 9) without warning.

    Some people - myself included - plan out their resource allocation strategies well in advance. At least a little notice before such huge changes take place would be nice - I feel like I'm getting it from both ends on this side.

    I'm also sitting on a Level 10 Warrior LoL and a Level 9 Sentinel that I already paid the higher early costs for.

    Basically, everybody who was at a certain awakening level when this thing dropped is being double-charged here with no warning. That's simply not cool.

    TL;DR: Before major changes like this (and that amount of gold is MAJOR), we need time to strategize - which means a discreet WARNING.

    The difference is *overall* only 3.5mil.. it used to be that no single stage was more than 4.5 mil (I think). the problem is by the time the increase was implemented MANY were already at those final couple stages so there's an immediate 7+Mil increase there and they do NOT reap the benefit of a decrease in lower stages.

    This. Devs are PENALIZING players that were already awakening characters.

    Look, I apologize for getting so riled up.
    I'm just getting soooo tired of the narrowing path which is this game. They keep just adding insult to injury.
    I originally was excited about Awakening toons.
    I maxed one, the next ones I am not in such a hurry!

    This is so we all have the facts in this discussion.
    These are "Before the Hotfix" pics. All awakening toons had the same requirements.

    Yup is correct.
    When we paid the higher prices at the beginning and now they reverse it.
    I end up paying alot then (in the beginning before the increase) and now (at the last stage after the increase)..... So if a player evolved a toon before the hotfix, but stopped at the last stage, then tries to max awaken after the hotfix, you get screwed on both ends, like my Magus LoL in these pics.

    Thanks Yup.

    Our Facebook group is happy and impatient about the clans.
    They are uploading sketches (still very basic) for banners. One of the first, simple but gained popularity among it.

    What gets to me is that I was holding off max-awakening G LOL (which was GOING to cost ~3Million gold)... because I wanted to collect more 5 star colorless awakening runes first, then maybe use those to awaken another character.... but BAM!!!!!!!!!! That 3Mil cost jumped to 10+Mil with no warning.

    Do we get ANY credit for paying the 4 and 5Million costs at the earlier stages of awakening??????

    Frankly, if a character was awakened to stage 4 or better BEFORE the cost increase,,... You should award those accounts the difference in gold they paid.


    The fact that the increase was done via a "hot fix" is even more infuriating.. it means you PURPOSEFULLY planned on an immediate change to take advantage of users. You COULD have simply rolled out the increase with the October update and made players aware that it was coming.

    Imagine paying a mortgage...You pay the same amount for years... then when your last payment is due, the bank tells you that last payment is 3 times more than it was yesterday!!!!

    If this were real money, these practices would be usurious and could possibly open you to litigation, but since it's all digital you get away with shit you would NEVER get away with in ACTUAL business. It REALLY shows the mindset of the company.
