Mobile Games like Legend of the Cryptids are dangerous. I am amazed at how much money they make from players desperate to keep up and win the 'big prize' in each event.
I use to be one the suckers who would spend real money to try and get the big prize.
For those that dont know. Its a trading card game. By trade, the game is a loose link to that genre because noone trades cards for other cards, instead they trade cards for potions to help compete in events. They use to have the tradeable potions as rewards, but then stopped and only gave out the best cards for the top 100 ranked people in the event. Only way to buy these potions.. with real money.
The people that brought them, lowballed the hardcore event players who got the top notch cards.. the developers didnt care as they were raking in the money from smucks like me. Then the frequency of events increased to each week making the cards become obsolete by the time the next cycle of events started.
Its disgusting how they get away with it and worse how much, people have spent. I reckon I had spent close to $200 to get good cards. Thankfully I woke up and saw what a joke it was after 2 years.
