I'm bad in math, is it cheaper in the long run to buy each individual package or just the last one?  I'm going to need a premium account every month and you get one free month with each pack except the first one. I've already bought the $10 Journyman pack.

 

$150 for 3 packs on sale.

-$30 for 3 months free premium from packs

-$100 for 26k gold in 3 packs is 10 months of premium 

= $20 total,  plus get the units

 

Please check my math, thanks.

IMO only the Triarii are worth a damn from the founders packs.  The Delian Peltasts, Spear Brothers, Germanic Scouts, Celtic Slingers, Thracian Royal Cavalry all suck compared to the regular units in game.  You just need more gold to convert their unit XP to free XP.  This guy has some good reviews of some of these units: https://www.youtube....sable_polymer=1

It needs to be clear that the founders packs do not stack. You can buy one of the 3 smaller packs and upgrade them to the ultimate pack, or just buy the ultimate pack at $100. Not including any active sales, that is. The most you can spend on the game is the starter + the ultimate, nothing else afaik. Like the Peltast pack doesn't and cannot stack with the thracian cav pack.

 

You can buy gold packs and use the gold to buy premium, FYI

So the gold does not stack? The gold limit is 12,500 not the combination of all packs added together?

 

Also the free months don't stack? So I've bought the $10 pack and now I get no free months to upgrade to another pack?

Correct, the limit to the gold you can get from founders packs is the amount in the largest pack. I believe the $10 pack is separate from the founders, but I am not certain and can't promise anything.

 

Once you buy a founders pack you will be able to buy $10 individual gold packs if you need more gold. AFAIK that gold pack is supposed to be public to anybody, but currently only displays for people with founders.

3 Founders packs? Not the $10 gold pack or the new unit packs they just released?

I just hope that when the reset occurs all the purchased/won packs don't glitch and give only 30 days of premium when they have been stacking so far...........OMG its a scary potential possibility........Ahhhhhh

Too bad. The purchased packages will be refunded but the winning awards.. I'm not sure.

I bought the 100$ pack have i have 0 regrets. Some gold units are more useful the others but all can give value or fun factor. Massive starting gold is always a huge plus.
