IronJaw has struck once again in the banking district!
Thanks to him, you can multiply your Clintz X10 from 5pm (GMT+2) until tomorrow at 12pm (GMT+2).
This boost is only valid in Survivor, ELO and Classic mode! Your Clintz will be multiplied for each fight that you have IronJaw in your hand.

I find it stupid that it only works if you have Ironjaw , what if you dont have him? This just makes this game even more pay to win, the people that have multiple ironjaws will get even richer, I just find this unfair for people who struggle to get clintz or the people who just started to play this game
@Myeltd: Giving a small Clintz boost as an incentive for owning a card, over a very short term, seems incredibly dissimilar to that incident.
@Silva-69: This makes people who own multiple IronJaw *slightly* richer if they play a lot in a very short frame of time. There are many ways to make money in UR. I agree that if we introduced a disproportionately efficient way for owners of IronJaw to make money, you could consider it pay-to-win, but that's definitely not the case here.

This doesn't even fit the definition of pay to win. Pay to win is you can pay real money to get something that provides a tangible advantage that other people can't get with in game currency. If they started offering a card that you could only get by spending say $5, that would be pay to win. This doesn't meet that definition.
Yeah, I'm actually more focused on the opposite direction. After playing games like Hearthstone and League of Legends (former being terrible, latter being pretty decent to watch) I'm actually quite surprised at the lack of ways to spend $ in this game. In "LoL" you can buy points and use those to purchase everything from characters to avatars to name changes. In this game, you can only buy credits which even then doesn't always guarantee you get what you want (especially if you really want to try a certain card/clan). While it would probably be unfavorable, allowing people to use credits to unlock certain mission packs/buy certain cards (legendaries) could give people more incentive to actually spend cash on this game, as until then it'll be hard to find new buyers. Basically, add more variety to your store and you may attract new customers.
I agree with myeltd. I don't really have anything worth spwndn gb money on. I spent a few bucks to get rattle when he was like 200k to sell him, but other than that I can afford everything I want with clintz easily. If there was something else for me to spend credits on I'd happily buy more, there's just nothing that piques my interest.
Maybe bring back new Clintz packs but better? The reason why people never bought them is because you got 10k for 100 Credits which is dumb to buy if you for that amount also can buy 2 Mega new bloods and 1 new blood pack. The trade 1 Credits -> 200 Clintz is also a bit low. Maybe something like 25 credits=12.000 Clintz, 50 Credits= 30.000 Clintz and 75 Credits=65.000 Clintz or something?
@The Stepson (and a few others: )
Instead of an automatic reaction when some kind of offer is posted, I would like to see a reasonable argument, something that we can all learn from so that the game can be better improved. A few people here have had negative reactions to this offer, so I'd like to make a few points:
"Won't this cause IronJaw's price to inflate?"
The offer is one and a half days long, so it will not cause any long-term effects on the market. Any market effect would be extremely temporary.
"This offer greatly favors people who have a bunch of IronJaw! Is this P2W?"
You win somewhere between 2 and 7 Clintz per battle, normally. IronJaw can turn this into a nice "bonus," but I would advise you to do the math before coming to the conclusion that it's going to be harmful in any way. Somewhere in UR right now, there are people playing events, or getting top in ELO, and so on. All of those people are making profit more efficiently. The biggest profits in this game continue to go to the most *skilled* players... As always.
"This offer is going to make people want to buy packs! UR keeps wanting us to spend money!"
Yes, hopefully! As I have explained previously, a purchase on UR benefits the entire game. The person investing some cash into this game is helping to pay for upcoming innovations, server costs, and so on. Our goal with this is to encourage people who are already thinking about making a purchase to commit to it by offering a little extra bonus, just like any small sale or offer at any store. We are NOT giving a disproportionately strong reason for players to commit to the purchase if they would prefer not to; their gameplay experience is not going to significantly change. The difference in wealth between The Stepson and someone with 4 IronJaws will not be greatly altered when this event is over. Only a nice, reasonably sized bonus will be awarded to people who were either skilled enough to win IronJaw early, or loyal customers who are helping to make UR great for every player with their financial support.
If there is really a good argument with a logical basis against this kind of offer, I would love to hear it, so I can advise the rest of the team.

Wow, wow, wow!!
I wasn't going to bother, but since I am named not once, but twice in the previous message (despite the "few ones" in brackets); I feel obligated to do so:
1st - Ghelas, I would like to say that from where I am standing this burst feels to more "automatic reactioning" then my post. I was just stating my opinion. And I am entitled to it, or at least I feel like I am. If I am wrong...no, I don't think I should apologize.
2nd- Why this is my opinion? Because this is not the first time you insist to apply this "recipe" and 8at least) during the last year or so yoou guys had mostly negative input all around the community. If this is not reason enough for you to rethink you way in doing things...and we come to the conclusion stated in my previous post "why bother"?
3rd - Again (again this is also connected to my opinion), this is a offer, or whatever anyone would like to call it, thta benefits few people in the UR. Instead of coming with arguments already posted and that didn't conviced those who still bother to complaint, maybe due to the lack of strength in them; why not trying new approaches? Some of them were suggested in several posts here and there for the last months. It is not that the community doesn't speak up and give suggestions.
If you give advices for anyone who doesn't want to listen, what is the point in it?
You had a point raised, for example in post 11, and you chose to just dismiss it. I personally think that SIlva-69 was expressing
