With the cars they've been running I couldn't get gold lately anyway. I missed 100 gold by .6 seconds today. Didn't have time to try a few upgrades today. Maybe I will get the 50 next time. 100 would still be more incentive though. Change it back!
To add insult to injury, the App crashed on me, a second after I got my reward of 100 GC (first time I reached group C). The reward was gone when the App reloaded. Submitted a ticket, not hopeful. Might retire from WTT!
Well, it was enough of an incentive for me to spend some precious GC on some upgrades I'd not have done otherwise. Not to mention another ~hour or so of track time. Obviously I played right into their calculating devious little hands. bad monkeys, bad monkeys. LOL
Yeah I spent gold preparing for future arrivals in weekly, I even spent on the last upgrade for the Lotus 125 too and spent ages getting better times, now I'm not that interested in trying anymore, I'm in rank C now 1 second away from B but it's only +50 on what I'll get for staying where I am
The hours of track time and the frustration that goes with it is not really worth the payout now, I think I'll only do a few laps for each new stage and move on to other areas of the game, looks like the quest for gold has lost it's touch, more of a medusa than midas
No doubt there's a monkey sitting in a cubicle crunching numbers to report to the boss monkeys how doubling the payout effected participation & spending. Cant help but wonder how we did & what it would take to make the higher rewards permanent.
Ladies and gents,
I am going to dare to make the following suggestion:
Don't be so negative about this return to "normal" WTTT rewards. I suggest we all view the last two weeks as a nice unexpected bonus (for those that made it into Group C or higher).
Don't get me wrong - I'd like the double rewards to stay as much as anyone, but viewing what should be a positive (i.e. a bonus for two weeks) as a negative when it reverts is not good for your mental states!
Just my tuppence... :)
