    The use of gems for resources is basically discouraged, but the option is there. The higher your Town Hall gets, the better you should know it is a useless purchase. Except when you got tons to spare, in that case help Supercell through the winter and buy your resources Loot is free, all you have to do is play.

    However, I would love it if they made the 1 gem donation not an event but a permanent feature. It would mean I would spend more gems, but for a good cause too :-)

    what is unreasonably expensive imo is gemming instant heal of heroes, and instant CC troop request. Those should be lowered...
    But even that way it would speed everything up, with resources much easier to get, and wouldn't that have the same effect?

    Yeah, ok, you’d “think about it” for like a second, spend two gems and upgrade your king or queen. 100k dark for 1 gem? LOL

    But for the OP, the game developers want you to attack for resources. You know, actually play the game and interact with others.

    I think there is a price point, where people would just buy the resources instead of farming for them... 1 gem for 100K of ANY resource is far, far below that point.

    The current price point is above what most people will consider, though.. As it should be.

    (I for one would gladly have spend 500 gems to max out my Royals early and I'm sure you would too, if it had been an option)

    And that would have taken Z$ to buy

    Comparing the virtual resource with real money given even higher sense of accomplishment.

    When we all get around 450 gems a month, for free, the "pain point" for resource buying has to be significantly higher than that..

    It is ludicrously high. I think it's actually for the mega-whales only tier of players. i.e. "no we're not going to let you buy resources, but just in case you are willing to throw insane amounts of cash at us, here you go..."

    I know

    Exaggeration promotes understanding - but I guess in this case it just promotes confusion.

    EDIT: And iirc you can get around 20 free gems daily so you could, if the price was 1 gem for 10k, get 200k dark FREE every day. It would be dumb to pass that up, but again, exaggeration promotes understanding
