    Some of the pricing models do seem nuts. Lord of the Rings Online is a free to play game on PC I've spent about £110 on, but that's in 7 years; almost all on buying content rather than fluff, just paid for more useful things like more bag space and shared storage but none of the cosmetic fluff or temporary boosts. For that I've basically got the full game, although would cost more than that when not on sale as there are now 6 expansions, 4 free quest pack areas and 20 further quest packs (and there is still more of Middle Earth to go), and several skirmishes. You get points while playing the game so some of that you can get for free, but realistically have to start paying some cash when you get to Angmar or Moria - can still be a tourist in regions not bought so it isn't compulsory to buy everything in level order. Still cheaper than subscribing (although do need a single 1 month subscription to unlock some other stuff).

    Still, something like 4p per hour played is close to free.

    I've got one too.

    Fire Emblem Heroes' "best deal" pack for its premium currency (Orbs, which are spent to summon character units to use in battle, which have star based ranks up to 5*) is $75 for 140 Orbs.

    140 Orbs is nothing. Spending 140 Orbs trying to get a specific unit will not only very rarely get you that unit, you can easily spend 140 Orbs and not get a single 5*. The $75 spent doesn't guarantee you'll get anything better than common 3-4* early game trash units.

    I've spent more on TPA than all other apps and in app purchases combined. Each table was worth it for me. I didn't buy them all, and there are a few I regret, but I'm glad I did. There are a few on the app that I loved as a kid, and one or two I've grown to really enjoy even though I've never played them IRL.

    Perhaps there are lucky coin days, sometimes they'll drop with unusually high frequency. Could be once a week?

    Received the Poco F1 today, Williams Pinball is a revelation compared to my old Moto G4.
    - The 18.7:9 aspect ratio is superior and provides a clearer view of the table.
    - Manual plunging benefits from the increased vertical screen space.
    - Performance is astounding with the Snapdragon 845, silky smooth frame rates and vastly improved menu response.
    - There are no mechanical issues with VUKs or ball locks (Black Rose / Party Zone).
    - Unfortunately Safe Cracker tokens do not carry over to new devices.

    Does anybody happen to know what the starting amount of tickets and coins are for the app when first opened? I want to say it was 50 or 75 coins, but I don't remember.
    I'm just sayin'

    I thought it was a much lower amount than that. Maybe 5 or 10 coins?

    Oh damn! That's why I'm asking, because at launch I got a much different total than what people are probably getting now.

    Just had a quick go on the mobile app and got an advert I hadn't seen before. Company for trading commodities etc., and on the bottom it had 83% of investors lost money - er, don't think I'll bother with that one either!

    Wasn't aware of any app updates but just noticed a couple of minor changes:
    - Basic Challenge refresh reduced to 20 tickets.
    - ToM XP points drastically reduced.

    I thought the Basic refresh cost was fine at 25, perhaps it's a subtle way to encourage additional advert clicks for card flip 4.

    Through a phone reset, I've lost my Google Play Games progress and have an open support case with Zen to restore it.

    Here is the starting balances after force upgrading one table for 300 tix.

    Gutted, wonder why that occurred. I've got the game concurrently installed on two devices sharing the same account, the only game data not shared between the two appears to be Safe Cracker tokens. Out of curiosity what are Zen asking for the 'Legendary' table pack, does it include all ten tables?
