Going through these amounts, and I have to ask.... Where is the incentive for the players to spend above 4k balens?

At 4k balens, you have: 40 Whips, 40 Shards, 1 Fashion Core, 800k Gold and 400k Daru.

All well and good. But, after that you have the 10k Balen exchange, and the figures are as below:

80 Whips and 80 Shards (2.5x the amount of Balens spent for only 2x the items)
2 Fashion Cores (2.5x the amount of Balens spent for only 2x the items)
1600k Gold and 800k Daru (2.5x the amount of Balens spent for only 2x the items)

Then the 30k Balen exchange is just as strangely amounted when compared to the 10k

200 Whips and Shards (3x the amount of Balens spent for only 2.5x the items)
3 Fashion Cores (3x the amount of Balens spent for only 1.5x the items)
3200k Gold and 1600k Daru (3x the amount of Balens spent for only 2x the items)

Are these the final amounts for each of the tiers, because if so, it actually looks to be taking advantage of the player for the fact the items are a rarity and using this fact to squeeze more money than is necessary from them. Hopefully this has just been an oversight that will be looked at and fixed Very Happy

completely agree... to me there is no point spending more than 4k on the event, even though I do have the AP waiting to be spent.

This promo was based on the R2 promo's that were set to run....they had two concurrent promo's which would have made both worthwhile.

Pays to recharge and Pays to consume....together is was a good deal but now on the R2 forums they are stating a glitch to the promo and they will run the "Pay to recharge" later in the week so that they can charge double the price for players.

It is sneaky and greedy on the partners part (Aeria has no control over it). Players have complained on the R2 site about the how they are handling this....the post is already 4 pages long with complaints.

Remember it's a game. Always have fun in good times and bad.

It's actually a promotion set by the developers, not R2. R2 is just another partner of 7-road, like Aeria.
R2 has a history of jumping the gun with promotion/ update announcements which then causes their GMs to have to back-track a lot after announcing things (they did this with the patch dates for 1.45 and now with this pay to recharge event). Making the information unreliable until announced on the dev's official site (wartune.com) and here.

It is to avoid this sort of backlash and jumping the gun that Mazinger and the AeriaBrowser GM team do not post information until it has been officially released to them by the devs (rather than matters discussed informally or pre-release). The down side to this is that sometimes we have to wait to get the information.

That being said, the complaint stated here is not about the lack of a pay to recharge event but that it doesnt reward high spenders for their spend. The best spend event set out here is for 4k balens, at higher amounts the "per balen" reward is significantly lower, which seems unjust.
