Aeria Games

AP Coupons = a fishing hook for your money?

The first 250 players to complete the survey will receive 1 coupon for 500 bonus AP on their next AP purchase.  


I saw this and I wondered... Why don't you just give 500 ap out? or is this something to make people buy from you guys to get you more money? Now I know some people are gonna say "Well its you choice to use it or not" but think about it, they give it out then say "Use it by 1st of October or the deals off" and that kinda puts you in a Deal or no deal situation. Us non-ap buyers want to get some of this free ap but if we want the free ap, we have to spend money to get something for free... Weird huh?

Tell me what you guys think about this... Is this just another money hook Aeria made from the finest steel? or am I the only one who thinks this is a bit greedy?

A 5 dollar incentive when you need to spend 10 dollars (or more) to use it.

Would be nice if it was 50 dollars worth of AP but you take what they give you !!




I'd smile - but I have no lips !!

Well, giving incentive to take surveys may cause people to exhibit bias in their answers. But why does it matter. They've known the flaws in PVP, PVE, and partying for more than three years. I doubt this server will change anything.

Sure it's a hook

It's actually no different than a buy one get one free at Wal-mart.
Or an advertisement for lower interest rates during a limited sales event.
Domino's is cheaper if you pick it up and Pizza Hut has a lunch buffet. (which is a good thing)

It's easy to get caught up in the thought that Aeria Games is taking your money but it is really as simple as a need to survive. The company has to find new ways to generate an income.
If not...... those that can not buy AP, wouldn't have a game at all.
Sure AP is fun but don't forget that even though it would take 10 times longer to reach level 165 without using any AP........You can get there free.

If you get a coupon, you can trade the code to an AP buyer for the equivalent if you don't want to buy anymore?
