    Apologies in advance for the double post. It's Saturday afternoon time for me, so I've got the time to browse and think.

    I do not understand how someone can get 5 sales in a week (no offence intended to QZ), but I've not had 1, apart from the all and sundry one, in 8 months.

    I do understand the concept of random (drops) in CS world, however, I do not class gem sales as random. These are the bread and butter that makes TL tick over. Why are they only offered to a select few?

    I'm quite happy to part with my hard earned if I think it is worth it, but my current, and never changing package, does not cut it when I know that others are offered specials. Cheers

    Hi outhouse01,

    I don't think it has something to do where you live. I have two kingdoms on two different devices and in Castledom I get a sale about once a week and in Royalville I only got the one you got as well. And I live in Europe (Germany), so it's really random and frustrating.

    I don't understand TL's politics in this either. In my opinion TL would make more money with regular sales for all.

    Ta. Thanks for your response. Yes, I find it very frustrating. Why am I not offered the same as others. Happy gaming. Cheers

    I wonder if it would prime your pump, so to speak, if you bought the smallest amount of gems and then see if that starts to trigger more/any sales. I usually have about 3500 gems on hand, and I've fallen below that in the last 2 weeks. I've wondered if it somehow tracks how many gems you have and gives you sales when you fall below X amount. I dunno, I'm just spitballing...

    I never get gem sales either and I have bought gems at full price more than once. I have been playing since Sepember 2013. I am also in the United States so where you live doesn't matter. It makes me angry but I love the game so I will keep playing. I would definitly buy more gems if they went on sale so please, TL, fix this issue ��

    I have been playing for a little over a year i think and i live in the US, but have also never received any gem sales. I have bought gems a few times, but only receive offers that have to do with specific goals, like when we had the saint patrick's day rainbow pots. I just bought gems today, but the last time was a few months ago or more. I avidly read the forums and see people talk about gem sales fairly often. It makes me not want to buy gems, when you know some people get them for a discount. I would probably buy more gems if i got a sale every once in awhile. It is like when some buildings used to be different prices for different people. That made no sense to me! I don't usually like to complain or even comment very much, but this post just made me a little angry. I wouldn't shop at a store that gave some people a sale, but not me, so i don't see how this is different.

    I keep thinking that TL might actually make more money if they had regularly scheduled gem sales. Like on the first of the month. I think people would buy more, and more often. But, I'm sure they have their market analysts.

    Hi Outhouse, I am also from Australia,but do get the gem *sale* on a fairly regular basis.

    It's all very odd as to how it is decided who gets the offer.

    I live in the US, and the last time I had a gem sale was Christmas.

    Hi all thanks for your responses. QZ, I currently have about 1000 gems on hand, so I don't think it is that. It just annoys me that others get offers and others don't. My money is just as good as anyone else's, but as another poster said and I agree - I will not shop somewhere that offers sales to others, but tells me when I walk in the door, that sale is not available. No sale, no dollars, a sale, my dollars. Those little 99 cent packages would add up after a while. I would be interested to know how many packages they sold for the one off event that everyone got against just offering a select group. Cheers all.
