Please don’t put FREE up on the store when it isn’t

It’s helpful to have a FREE logo when there actually is something free in the store, but when the supposedly free thing is Charge Up, it’s deceitful. Charge Up is not free at all, you have to buy things for real money to get it. It’s not really an “exclusive offer” either, as 1) you are offering it to everybody and 2) there are other way to get a Vickers Virginia. I realise you need to earn a living but trying to trick people into the store is not a good look. And not good sales tactics either.

But they're clearly advertising once you pay for some things you get another thing for free, how is that deceitful? It's like buy 4 coffees, get a frappaccino free.

Because the button that says FREE sometimes actually takes you to things that are genuinely free to everybody immediately, while other times it's just free with other purchases as stated above. They know very well that people will tap on it hoping or expecting to find a genuinely free item when most of the time it will just be the dubiously free charge-up item.

Players know where to find the sales if they are interested in buying them. Ambiguous or misleading advertising clutter on the main game screen is just annoying.
