Spenders Vs Non-spenders

Post by ynot563 on Mon Apr 15, 2013 11:44 pm

Finally a debate thread lol. = P. been waiting for one of these. So Ppl have been goin on spenders vs non spenders and what defines a spender. I couldnt figure out how to move the individual posts without moving the entire topic here but here is what the conversation is so far.

ynot563 wrote:Geez, ppl weren't lying when they said they were getting their butt kicked in water tower. Almost 90% of the encounters I get, ppl have r5 peguin gear. Feels like everybody pumped themselves up with roids(using money) in this event considering last arena in water I had no trouble at all.

RussellNg1980 wrote:I think NR bumped the difficulty a bit. Last arena had options of easy fights. This arena a bit more difficult. Definitely not as difficult as past arena.

Also, they opened level 6 a day late. I think they want to make sure only spenders can reach APEX. Sort of like preserving the "prestige" for the spenders.

ynot563 wrote:Probably what the definition says lol, a person who spends money. So if ur talking about how much a person spends on this game to be label a spender then thats an opinion of the individual person. My opinion would be if u spend $1 or more to get ahead in the game then ur a spender, simple as that lol. Im not sayin spending is bad just that there are daily big spenders which gets a bit annoying at times especially when they r low lvl and then u get a big surprise in battle by losing more hp than u bargained for.

tribaby4115 wrote:Maybe you should choose your battles a little wiser...I buy sushi every now and again I dont think that gives an unfair advantage lol anybody who finishes in the top I say 25 and says they dont either spend or cheat then id call them a liar

ynot563 wrote:U misinterpret my comment lol, I spend sometimes too lol, I'm in the top 100s and yea I did have some left over sushi from last event that i spent on lol. I used them to get ahead a lil in this event lol. I'm just going by definition of a spender. You google it up and thats the definition "A person that spends" whether it be money or not. I'm not using it as a insult. Just sayin that its annoying that some low lvls would drop 100-200 dollars in 1 event and can rank up in the top 10 if they try hard enough.

I'm also gonna move these posts to game discussion if you dont mind = ).

So thats the conversation so far. What do you think defines a spender? Do you think its fair or not? Reply if u want to jump in! bounce

I also wanted to add in, do any1 remember lilkim? He was a low lvl player and nobody in the top 10 knew him very well and yet he ranked 1 in the first 2 events. I'm not saying he cheated by no means but he was a suspicious case due to his sudden drop from his second event and never heard from again. He also managed to get all the primal gears to maxed fused too. And thats no feat either. So he either dropped a lot of money on those events or not, thats not the case. IT does however bring up a point to what i'm making. Somebody that can pick this game up in 1 day and drop a lot of money into this game can bypass everybody that has been playing this game for a long time now. Yes this is a pay to win app game but something like that is also a big game changer. That is what i mean when i say there r some annoyance when low lvl can compete with u. I know for a fact like the regular players like ps520, canatian, or besthippo, even you tribaby4115 are long time players of the game and to have a new person sweep in 1 event and out rank all of you just because they have a big wallet. Which is unfailr to all ur time and money u spent on this game.

I couldn't imagine spending what amounts to a plane ticket to Central America or a really great weekend to win an event on a game like NR. That's just not something that would ever cross my mind. I might spend a little every now and again on a kit or a sushi early on in an event, but I really just don't see the appeal after that.

To each their own I guess.

i think that its fair to spend. however i like to lay back for a few events and stock up all the freebies they hand out so that in a few events i can spend only a little and get within the top 200 easily sometimes the top 50-70 but then again im not doin very good in the events i have to take it easy.
To me the biggest problem is locking floors or stages. the first lock i can understand a little bit but the second lock is what keeps me from doin very well in the arena because theres just not enough time to get through the towers without spending. i mean if your on floor 13 and you fight only black hiesters it still takes about 9 of them to clear the stage so whats' that $15 in super dupers HAHA if not then it takes me almost a day and a half to clear. i've just learned to except that for the most part if you want the 2nd or 3rd clans epic your gonna pay for it one way or another, saving or spending.
i have two ninjas i only play the first day or two of the event & then dont play them any more and i've manged to stock up about 190 doryaku(s) 200 minor draws 30 cookies so in the next primer or crackdown i can play with one of them and uses the max dory (s) each day of a crackdown

I would define a spender as someone who spends money regularly. I've purchased sushi I think twice, but I wouldn't consider myself a spender.

Learning how to deal with the events is the biggest thing, and if you don't want to spend money, be prepared to spend time if you want to do really well.

I don't consider those who plop down anything less than $10 - $20 as spenders. To me that is just spending to get something, like a rank you like, or an item that you fancy. That to me is like waking up in the middle of the night to use up your turns. And yes, that is what dropping 20 bucks on this game is like, too steep a price for too little a gain.
