I dont know if it is only me, but I find all the events the past 3-4 months too expensive and the rewards not worth the money (I am not even mentioning the artifacts offered are mostly crap). In fact i have never seen such high prices anywhere else. Most of the games I have played have a pass in the range of 1.99-9.99€ with 5€ being the most common.

I dont know if you will keep with that pattern but people are getting bored and tired.

I guess BHG and Nexon are squeezing every last drop out of the game while they can

I do agree. A 100$ game pass is a little much. But to be fair it does come with plenty of rewards worth much more then that. And it’s not like the pass affects game play in any way. There is also a free version of the pass.

Think this way. 1 player buys 100$ pass. It takes 20 players to equal that 1.

Ok now if they gave a decent artifact for global most likely the top 150 of the global will buy the pass.

Not gunna lie i got lost where I was going with all this.

I agree too expensive.

And … the prices have gone up by 20% since October … not really like the inflation. 120 for an event pass …

in the past there were few passes for low prices.
i bought the every pass for 1€/week for multiple accounts.
i would consider a ~10-15€/ 2weeks for my main account.

Even if these prices seem particularly low, don't underestimate the power of small prices (high buy rates).
Again look at how other companies solve this: e.g. there is a low price season-pass (5€ / month) in Clash of Clans and i used to buy this.

It’s probably an indication of the number of active playing spenders. CoC has a lot more players, so SuperCell can rake in all the micro transactions. Domi doesn’t have that luxury, and with players dropping like flies, BHG have to hike the prices and milk every last possible cent out of the game

number of active playing spenders.
that is my point (and probably that of the starter of this discussion).

I would become an active spender (again) if the prices are lower. I can effort a "cheap" (5-10€) monthly pass for approx. ten accounts and i will spend the money if they are available - but i will not spend 30/50/100€ per week (per account). In my opinion its not worth because the "challenges" are done within one day and buildings bind all my workers after that day for up to 2 weeks - so it's basically 30/50/100€ for 1 day of "fun".

in my opinion, BHG can have few people paying high prices or tons of people paying small prices.

You can play DomiNations for free and there is no real point to buy more than the estate (~55€). And atm i advise this way to my allies. In low and mid ranged alliances you don't need to buy premium TT for wars - either you have no chance in a mismatch or you can take down the enemy because they have a weak layout / defensive buildings / museum. Therefore the pass should offer something with high value for *most* player. You can come up with own ideas or look at CoC and bring something like the gold pass with reduced building time and/or reduced research time and/or reduced training time and/or a "season bank" (just google the term, you can name it another way).

From my perspective BHG has the option to lower prices and receive my ~100€ / month or stay with high prices and receive nothing. And i think some other player would have similar behavior for their account(s).

The latter isn’t really an option with the player numbers; probably not enough to pay the skeleton crew salaries. BHG will really have to pull some magic out of the hat to turn things around, which I sincerely hope they do. Perhaps shorter upgrade times, lower prices as you’ve suggested and scrapping some of the inane P2W features (museum included) might attract new players.
