Not at all. I stopped making fire and police stations due to price increase. I began only making EMS Stations at Portugal, so many stations that I was pretty much "The Ambulance guy"Idk if your name is Marco (Semas will pick this one up xD) but thw way I build stations it's not cool at all to play with these prices. When that account that you were talking about got banned I was not sad at all since I was pretty much bored of the game. Then I started on a new account which was way more fun, avoided a few mistakes as I already had more experience and it is way more fun to play at this account than the older one, mainly because I have a feeling of progress while in the other one I didn't
The reason that got me to where I was was not that station prices for sure... I only got up to the 80M because I was going for the 100M earned credits, that's it. I would even say that the reason why I stopped playing the game for a while back then was exatly that, stations prices! I know a lot of people who got shocked when they heard about these prices. I believe not many people have reached the 25th station price yet and when they do they won't like it eitherI never said that prices shouldn't increase, I just said that the amount is huge and doesn't make much sense to me
Anyways, I understand the game server doesn't run on air and it needs cash to keep running, no argue there. But the only reason people don't say anything about those prices is because, like everyone does, they buy it with credits and not coins! A change in those prices would only benefict the game and the income that it makes since people would actually buy vehicles with coins rather than credits
If you are only making a million every 3-4 days then you are doing something wrong for sure...
I guess that is all for today, enjoy the last hours of the weekend everyone
Interesting comments indeed, I feel that this personal experience is just an example of how games are meant to be played. Once you had 'completed' your setup, you became bored with the lack of change. Once you have completed any game you can either try a new method or just go onto a new one. I feel like this argument is therefore not really one and more of a bland anecdote, although, It is interesting you mention you got banned, i feel this may hint at the reasoning for this argument as it sort of shows the impatience that most people on the opposite side of the fence appear to be showing.
Back onto the point the actual pricing of stations, once a price has been set, it's slightly unfair , in my opinion, to change this to suit the want of players who find it more challenging than expected. There have been many players to this game and to have their hard work invalidated to some extent could, up to a point, feel like an insult. I respect this is not you personal case, but you must understand some of the hard work that went into your setup and the value it built up.
On the point of pricing of vehicles specifically, an increase or decrease at this moment would probably not discolor people's opinions as their value in the game is so marginal compared to the buildings. I'd wholly agree that the coins to credits ratios just doesn't make sense at times and are rather amusing, not that I'm a spender on this game. But on the larger point of making the game more challenging, i'd hope to see extra, much larger but reasonable missions which would really reward those who have played a long time, rather than making it easier to progress.
