Do y'all really spend $100 USD to get like 100-175 character shards? Of course repeating for $1000-$10000+. And are y'all like doctors or really rich business *people* because I've always wanted to know what occupation whales have for spending so much on this game. Thanks!

  • they spend more like $300 for 330 shards, and I agree with the job thing 😂
  • Lol $100 USD isn't whale status.

    Not even $10,000 is whale status

    You can spend 100...+ a moth just to farm mods and by credits. Thats what advanced whales do.
    And if the income is good enough to throw it on a mobile game, then so be it.

    I think it has more to age than profession. By your mid 30s, you probably will have a decent living space, a car, some money in the bank. At that point, why not start spending on things you enjoy?
    Enjoyment can be a fancier house for some, a fancier car, or an expensive hobby. Being a whale in swgoh isnt even a terribly expensive hobby, when comparing to motorbiking, sailing etc.

    Some may just put whatever tgey can into the bank account, but personally, im not a fan of that option. Those are just numbers. Whats the point of working hard if all that it changes is just some numbers in a virtual web site.

    You do make a certain point, but a signifucant difference is that you actually play with swgoh and enjoy events/reaching targets.
    Bank web sites arent built to do that.

    In theory. But given the recent development...
    Revive the stores, the game needs it.

    Also a lot of the people who spend money on this game don’t see it as “just a mobile game” it’s a hobby, and people spend money on the hobbies they enjoy. It’s the same as collecting Pokémon cards, warhammer, model trains etc... people enjoy it so people spend money on it.
  • Wow, $10,000 is a lot to spend to not be a whale... But I'll spend on a character I like or just to get a farm done if I'm close. I typically won't spend more than 1 vault a month (Malak was my exception, he looked really cool to me) but I could totally see myself spending more if I didn't think the game would get a bit boring to me.

    For me, there's no reason to log in every day if everything is maxed out already, that's usually the point in which I quit playing a game. And since I haven't found a game like this that is done as well or better, I limit the amount I spend to keep interest up.

    For these reasons I wouldn't consider myself a whale, but someone who spends $10k even over the course of the 3 years the game has been around I would consider a whale. I guess that is subjective tho...

    SN: I've only been spending on the game about 6-8 months now...

    The ole’ spandex and cape look does it for you, eh?

    KotOR was an intriguing story, but his appearance always seemed out of place for me. More comparable to an 80’s villain or something.

    Lol yeah he reminded me of Trap Jaw from He-Man, I really liked that show as a kid 😅

    People have different lifestyles, jobs and spend differently for thier enjoyment or on hobbies.

    No one really needs to explain,justify or quantify that for someone else.
