Today we’re going to be breaking down the new Plarium Points System, to see if it is a worthwhile addition to the game, and how it will benefit all of our accounts, both spenders and Free to Players, across both Plarium Play and Mobile devices.
Plarium have stated that this system is across all platforms, but that Plarium Play users would receive extra benefit from it.
What are the rewards?
As we announced yesterday, you are able to acquire a new Legendary Champion from this system, as well as the resources to awaken her to 4/6 stars, which is a huge boost, but of course, this will take time to acquire!
As a Champion, Searsha the Charred looks good but is not game-changing, and in fact, may be slightly underwhelming when compared with existing Champions like Walking Tomb Dreng and Mordecai.
Once you complete the first section and earn yourself Searsha, you will move on to earning some 6* Legendary Artifacts, before moving on to the Souls to awaken your Searsha.
How do we get these points?
There are a few ways to get these Plarium Points to get yourself on the way to these rewards, some of them free-to-play friendly, and others the furthest thing from it.
- 2500 Plarium Points (Purchasable 2x a week) for £44.99 (Prices may vary depending on Region)
- Advanced Quests – We are yet to see these, so cannot comment on how many are available here.
- Shop (Plarium Play ONLY) – Every time you purchase a pack in Raid, you will obtain Plarium Points relative to the price of the pack.
- Play Time Rewards – Each day you can earn 3 points from playing the game, Plarium Play users will be able to earn an ADDITIONAL 3 points, whereas mobile users will be capped at the 3 points.
Plarium Play vs Mobile
Quite simply put, this system is really bad for mobile players, and feels like a massive push towards people using Plarium Play.
As it stands, it looks like it will take over 20 years to acquire Searsha as a Free to play mobile player, which we are almost certain will not stay the case, there will be access to Plarium Points in other ways, through tournaments, events, and maybe more methods.
But if you are a spending player, it would be smart to make all of your purchases through Plarium Play rather than your mobile for the time being.
