Balance changes

This release, just like any other, will bring some balance changes.

Extra Rubies Pass

In this update, we are excited to introduce the Extra Rubies Pass - offer that lets you collect a great amount of rubies in smaller batches for 14 days. That is a new way for players to acquire rubies at a discounted rate.

This Ruby Pass allows players to collect ruby 300 rubies on the day of purchase, and a set number of rubies daily over a span of 14 days, rather than receiving them all at once.

Extra Rubies Pass offer

Collecting Rubies

After purchasing the Extra Rubies Pass, a new icon with rubies will appear in the main hub. This icon will have two distinct states:

  • Rubies Ready to be collected: Rubies icon with a green timer shows the remaining time to collect rubies.
  • Rubies Collected, Waiting for Next Portion: Rubies icon with a red timer indicates the wait time for the next batch.

The timer shown with the Rubies icon will clearly define the 24-hour collection window, ensuring players know exactly when they can collect their next batch of rubies.

Main Menu Hub with New Ruby Icon

To collect Rubies, players have to tap the icon, which opens the COLLECT RUBIES popup, showing either the "ready to collect" or "waiting for next reward" state.

Players can accelerate the collection process, just like they do with calendar rewards. Be sure to check the February patch notes to read about the speed-up feature.

Extra Rubies Pass Pop-up

The flow for collecting rubies:

  1. The player taps the Ruby button in the main menu.
  2. The player immediately receives a reward from the reward sequence.
  3. After the reward sequence ends, the player returns to the main menu with a popup displaying the speed-up option.
  4. If it was the last portion of extra rubies, a different popup appears instead.

When the Extra Rubies Pass has expired, the player will get a popup with information about the end of the subscription and the ability to purchase again.

We believe this new Ruby subscription model offers a more engaging and rewarding experience for all players.

Premium Pass Subscription

With this update, we've introduced a Premium Pass subscription option. Players can now subscribe to the Premium Pass instead of purchasing it monthly.

How does the subscription option work?

The Premium Pass subscription allows players to pay a recurring fee monthly to access the Premium Pass features.

Instead of buying the Premium Pass anew each month, players can opt for the subscription model, which automatically renews until they choose to cancel it.

This offers convenience and ensures uninterrupted access to the benefits included in the Premium Pass.

Purchasing Subscription

Purchasing a Premium Pass subscription will follow the same steps as buying the previous Premium Pass:

  • Select the Premium Pass icon.
  • Choose the green button with the price on the Premium Pass popup.

Payment will be processed through the user's Google Play account, Apple ID, Steam Wallet, or other available payment methods on Steam.

Here's how the payment process works for each platform:

  • Google Play: Users can subscribe to the Premium Pass by selecting the option within the game. Payments will be processed through their Google Play account, with automatic billing based on the subscription plan (30 days).
  • App Store: iOS users can subscribe to the Premium Pass directly through the game. Payments will be handled via their Apple ID, following Apple's subscription terms, including automatic renewal according to the subscription period (30 days).
  • Steam: Users on Steam can subscribe to the Premium Pass through the game's store page or within the Steam client. Payments will be processed using Steam Wallet or other available payment methods on Steam. Users will be charged monthly (30 days).

Each platform ensures a seamless payment experience through their respective systems, allowing users to easily manage subscriptions and enjoy uninterrupted access to the benefits of the Premium Pass.

All players who currently have Premium Pass activated, they still can prolong it at a discounted rate, just as it used to work till now.

In case of the discounted Premium Pass not being extended in time, there will only be option to use a new Subscription method.
