    Hello and thank you for taking the time to respond previously.

    See that’s the issue, for players coming in from 2017, 2018, or 2019 we have no recollection of other previous prices of these sales, and even though it mentions that it’s -33% of 1500 – 995 diamonds might seem like a steal, but is it really? How do we know? Is there a chart for all previous items offered on sale event even displayed to the public? if so, why wasn't it displayed in this thread, as well as items that are going to be for sale?

    Another example of this would be the Pillar of Heroes as it was offered in this sale, so how do we know that a 1500 discount to 995 is a good deal? Since I’m pretty sure that this is the first time it’s been offered to the public, so why it was already discounted from a set price of 1500? Does this mean all previous event upgrades are going to be 995 from now on, are you able to elaborate?

    Regards Cardano.

    You don't find 15 goods a day useful, hows Iron Age working for you.

    Sleigh builders were probably the most sought after building for higher ages period.

    If they weren't at the event to obtain the base building then it won't matter what the upgrade costs. They can't utilise it. Not unless Inno also offers the Lvl 1 base at some point. At best it'd be a educated-guess based gamble on previous sales as to whether or not it appears. But even if they do put it up there's no guarantees the player would be online at the right time to buy it.

    I'm assuming the lvl 1 will come around at some point, but I don't know if it ever will, when it'd be likely or under what conditions. As such I wouldn't be buying the upgrades unless you either already have a building the upgrades can be used on or are prepared to absorb losses.

    Are all previous event upgrades going to be 995 from now on? I'm not privy to that information.

    Not one that I'm aware of. There are event announcement threads for previous sales. So you could try searching through the forums for previous sales and from that try to work out what may or may not come

    There is a flaw in your reasoning. What you need is 6 upgrades to reach level 7 and without a level 1 pillar in your inventory or your city this is no "sale" at all. It's like giving a discount on tires to someone that does not own a car.

    Nothing that has been offered is a "good deal". If you compare it to previous items on offer it is a discount, but you are still paying way to much.

    Only Madness here tis that they are stupid enough to start a feedback thread for it. Like they will ever get a positive reaction.

    I was basing the discussion on the price for the individual item offered. The upgrades have been requested before by those that were around for the event and for whatever reason have a incomplete building. So for those people it is a sale.

    Yes you'd still need the lvl 1 building to utilise the upgrades. However it's the easiest one for me to work out the rough value on due to it being a lvl based item.

    Your rough value still has one upgrade to many.

    Not sure what there is to discuss or give feedback. If you like the offers and have money to burn then fill ur boots. I have an inkling most just ignore the offers due to them being way too expensive but all down to Inno to evaluate sales and adjust pricing to suit while keeping the game balanced. Sounds easy but a little harder in practice.

    Agent is right feedback on this kind of subject will largely be negative.

    it's a lvl 7 building. That's one base and 6 upgrades right? My calculations were based on the upgrade price as that's the price available to compare with.

    Right, but there is no lvl 1 on offer. At most you can compare 6 upgrades.

    ok then @Agent327 :D

    1500 x 6 = 9000
    995 x 6 = 5,970

    Is this math now satisfactory to you? Or am I missing something still?

    Well now, looks like things didn't go according to plan, so much for everyone gets a chance.

    First it was Reno, then Sleight builder, then Medals, now Mill of fall and upgrades, I never got offered the pillar of heroes upgrades.

    Are Inno skint? I will be spending absolutely nothing on any of these as some of them pop up in GE and I don't need anymore lol. Looks like it's all about making money and the prices are way too daft.

    More upgrade kits for less diamonds would be better .
    Medals , forge points and renovation kits no as you can get them from GE an daily tasks .
    Special buildings , Base buildings and upgrade kits are always good for my city more of those please.

    No I don't, I have many special buildings that kill sleigh builders, 7 pagodas for a start, the only good thing about sleigh builders is I plunder them daily
