I myself have a small army of white Alicorns which I spent money for, because I do not have the love shack.
And I am still jumping all around this thread...
No, it's not who spends their money that are making problems-or fools of themselves- as you so "nicely" put it, it S8 unethical policies that is making a fool of us all including you.
Why question the motives of the players rather than the company who lied?
Believe it or not, critical reviews in the app stores -worldwide- can make an impact on those who want to download the game, potential new money spenders.
I wonder if you have bought some white alicorns....or purple for that matter.
