    Should I bother spending credits for Dark Aerosiderite packs?

    As many of you may know there is currently an event with Aerosiderite packs which each cost 199 credits.
    Furthermore there is the rewards interface which offers Dark Aerosiderites for purchasing certain amounts of packs.
    So for instance
    -If I spend 2000 credits for 10 packs I get 6200 DA as a reward.
    -If I spend 4000 credist for 20 packs I get 11700 DA as a reward.
    -Then they start rewarding much more DA after purchasing 50 packs which costs over 8000 credits.


    I am level 91 so have only been a level 90+ level for a little while. I have over 8750 credits currently. So my question is, should I bother, is it worth it, or should I leave it, continue mining DA normally and save my credits?

    Hi Orca234, consider it from the perspective of what's your average DA you get from every chance you colonise?

    This was my experience with a 7 purchase buys which gave me only 1x 1000, and the rest were 100s or less (20 DA was the smallest i remembered)

    With the purchase rewards of 4400 { 800+1200+1200+1200) DAs from 7 purchases add to my 1500 DAs from the purchases itself (i am counting the best case scenario here) the average for my 7 purchases was about 840 DAs { (4400+1500)/7 = 842.8 DA }

    I usually am able to collect 1200 DA from my colonization chances. So in comparison, it will be more better and cheaper for me to buy 1 additional purchases for 4 days to get 4800 DAs

    If you purchase 50 packs, the purchase bonus rewards will be 27,200 DAs. Assuming the same 7 packs drop rate gives 1,500 DAs (giving 10,700 DA). This will mean from 50 packs purchases the total gained will be 37,900.

    37,900 / 50 packs = 758 DA average.

    So from this calculation, it will only be beneficial to buy the packs, if your average colony harvest is 640 DAs per planet.

    If your average colony harvest if 720 DA per planet, you have to think if it is worth spending 9950 credits (50x199 credits) to gain an extra 10 days of harvest.

    If your average colony DA collection is > 720 DA per planet, it is not worth spending the credits.

    Of course, this is highly dependent on your drop rate of per pack basis, you could get lucky to get the 100K DA. But most probably will not be so lucky.

    ps: 10 pack buy with 1500 per 7 packs will be a total of (6200+2100)/10=830 DA per 200 credits
    20 pack buy with 1500 per 7 packs will be a total of (11700+4200)/10=1590 DA per 200 credits

    Nopo has some good suggestions there.

    Personally, for me, I wouldn't buy anything that you could get for "free". Credits are better spent elsewhere for me. Different if you are trying to be the best

    Yes, unless the returns from the credits spent is very very good, in general it is not worth spending credits here in this particular case.

    After all, sooner or later you will catch up with the spenders.

    Thanks for you detailed explanation Nopo. I was indeed thinking last night along the lines of that I can easily catch up in 10 days or 30 days.
    I have to admit the rewards interface certainly did look tempting at first sight as I was like" bloody hell 15k DA!" beacuse it seemed like a lot without thinking about it. But I'm roughly aquiring 3500 x DA per day which adds up. This takes me to the next point.

    Exactly anhtbxn, just like Galactonite energy which you can get for free. Spending credits now on DA isn't going to do me any good as it won't matter. My fleet is already plenty strong and I'm not trying to be number 1.

    Very detailed explanation Nopo. I should have checked the forum before.
    I spend more than 3000 credits to learn that this is no good for me.
