    Death Rally v1.5 - 150% more rewards advertisement

    Hello Community Specialist, Manager or Super Moderator,

    I am an avid Death Rally fan and player and love seeing all the great things the team keeps adding to the game. The newest update with the orange roadster looking car and the VIP upgrade reward options are incredible. The graphic fidelity of the game is unrivaled and I deeply appreciate the way the design of the upgrade system keeps me motivated to keep playing. I really can't count how many times the batteries have died on my IPhone4 playing. As you can imagine I look forward to every update.

    I love the game so much and will gladly continue to purchase its upgrades. But I didn't come to the forums today because I was complete satisfied with the latest update and the reason why is because I was mislead.

    I was prompted with a dialog that. Communicated that if I purchase the VIP upgrade I would be given "150% more" rewards after races but infact I was only given 50% more because the multiplier is x1.5. I feel like this is pretty simple math. If you have 2 of something and you get 150% more it is important to understand that you already have 100%. So the total should be 250% and not a x1.5 making the total 5.

    The VIP upgrade should be awarding x2.5 or the dialog should not falsely advertise. I paid the dollar believing I was actually going to be recieving more...

    I would really like to see a Ron Fellows Corvette type car make it onto the roster. Maybe something golden gray with black and red double fender stripes. I would also love to see blackout light kits or ground effects glow kits make it in as an upgrade kit for the various vehicles.

    GeoffB has it correctamundo. Unfortunately its a little more complicated im sure from the dev side. Text is a easy fix for future players, sure. But I think my point is being lost. My $58 bought me x110 and anything else is false advertising. It's bad enough I haven't earned all that XP from every race. I doubt a player progress migration is coming with the update. At least give us what we paid for...

    Thanks for driving it home GeoffB 

    You make it sound like we misunderstood. Actually, you should have said 50% more, instead of 150% more. It's false advertising. You gave us 1/3 of the additional promised reward. You should give people what they paid for instead of changing the wording and ignoring those who've already paid.

    Exactly! I bet had it been x110 like the math shown you may have thought about it. After the 1000 purchase you get a NA screen when pressing the $. I was hoping it would gray out or something. If/when there is ever another purchasable, I won't know it's there.

    bought the x1,5 then eventually the x3 but I'll pass on the x10.

    That's great news! I'm a big fan of bulk purchasing saving me money and the business model it was using had it way backwards considering you get 1x for $0.66 the first purchase, 1x for $3.33 with the second purchase, and 1x for $7.14 with the third... If that isn't punishing the committed players, I don't know what is! Hopefully it hasn't driven the revenue down too far. I can imagine there are a lot of suckers out there.

    Wanted to add the same goes for the $5 upgrade to 300% more and the $50 to 1000% more. 1+1.5 + (2.5x3) + (10x10) = 110x multiplier
