Is it worth it? Market exchanges and temporary deals

I just saw a question on reddit about the worth of the Spring deals in the market, and realized that even though lots of similar threads have popped up over the months, there isn’t a central place showing Dollars/ICE/Glory exchange rates. Might as well make one! This will be a wiki, so people can update it if they notice the rates changing. The details of temporary deals will follow this post.

MARKET PRICES

(as of 26 April 2019, in US dollars)

USD :dollar: to purchase ICE :ice: exchange rate

I was just thinking about making a thread for this. My one concern with these deals is what the chests will actually drop, especially the gold/silver. I feel like SEMC has gone in a direction of only :glory: and talents.

It’s concerning to me that I just don’t trust it. I want a chance for a skin. A blueprint. Not just talents and ice. I’m tempted by the spring deal, as from a :glory:/:ice: perspective it’s good. I just don’t trust the chest drops.

Also, your spring deal displays are cut off on my mobile device. I will add that the spring deal :dollar: : :ice: ratio should account for what the epic chests cost, if they don’t already in your wiki post. They’re 999 :ice: each, so in my books you’re also getting that amount of ice with the deal.

Again, from an :ice: perspective, great deals.

That’s a problem with how the Markdown engine renders tables (i.e., terribly). I haven’t been able to figure a good way around it, because Discourse severely limits what HTML can be used in the composer.

Ouchies, yeah I was worried a little about the formatting. I didn’t include the ICE value of the :epic_mystery_key: in the ice to dollars ratio, just because it’s so uncertain. Could be anything from opals/essence to a 900 hero + 2599 legendary skin combo.

I’ve been wondering if unordered lists would work as a wrappable HTML format…? WIll have to test it later.

As I know you know, tables suck for formatting. But we don’t have any other options within Discourse, unfortunately, because inline styles don’t work. :easter_sad_3:

I haven’t seen a blueprint in so long it’s as though they don’t even exist. Not one quest has dropped one in months.

They’re still out there, but you have to get lucky to find one. I’ve had about three or four in the past month and a half.

I purchased one of the Spring deals. I got two blueprints and two skins throughout the ordeal (in addition to more :ice:, :glory:, opals (where’s the item image for opals, @HipsterSkaarf !?!?) and talents). Was actually kind of nice.

I mean I do have almost all skins except for limited editions + some newer ones. I’ve been wondering this for a while but do skins like caths beach party line or origins idiris pop up as random blueprints, or from mystery/epic keys? They aren’t limited edition after all. If not then that may be why I haven’t seen blueprints in a while, but then I also thought that even if you have a skin you can still get a blueprint for it that is converted into essence.

I dunno, I can’t be THAT unlucky can I? I’ve literally had one blueprint in the last 3 updates. MONTHS.

Same, play every day a few games and didn’t have a single blueprint for months.

They removed the blueprint chest , and made the skin chests give you talents and glory boosts instead of blueprints , so I guess there is a focus on reducing blueprints and essence , I opened silver chest recently and it gave me all glory , if someone get essence or blueprints tell us here in the thread , last blueprint I got was Athena varya I think i got it when San fang released or before .

This one’s back up again; normal ICE/$ exchange, with keys as extras. Check the chest drop rates to see if this deal would be good for you.

To me, not nearly as good as other deals they’ve had, even in the same season. What’s your opinion?
