False advertising regarding Akasha pack

  • Gameforge is marketing the Akasha bonus pack as a 9% off regular price (7105 discounted to 6395 soulcash). However, a regular Akasha transmitter is 135 soulcash, so 50 Akasha transmitters only cost 6750 soulcash when purchased separately, not 7105. The 2 limited Akashas and 3 hidden Akasha transmitters are described as FREE when purchasing the pack, so they cannot be included in the value to calculated the 7105 as otherwise they would not be free, only discounted. The limited and hidden Akasha transmitters also cannot be purchased directly anyway so they have no assignable soulcash value. This needs to be changed because false advertising is illegal in the jurisdictions that Gameforge operates in.


    TLDR: GF is misrepresenting the discount on the Akasha pack, which is only about 5% off instead of the advertised 9% off, and comes with 2 limited and 3 hidden transmitters.

  • It's because it includes 3 hidden akashas and 2 limited akashas, raising the price.

    the chances are slim no matter what, who cares for the price when they're giving out 2 limited transmitters.

  • Ye its a big scam. Not only that they advertise it wrong. Also the chances. I remember to watch a stream from a guy on NA who payed more than 1000$ for limited akasha transmitters and he didnt even saw a shion let alone a catherine...


    With best regards

    As I explained, the Akashas are listed as free with the purchase of the 50 Akasha transmitters, so you are technically not purchasing the extra 3 hidden and 2 limited transmitters. If you buy something and it's "buy one get one free", that is NOT 50% off and cannot be marketed as such.


    But for arguments sake, let's include them anyway. The extra transmitters do not have an attributable soulcash value because they have never been purchased from the shop separately. If GF is going to put some random soulcash value to them, why not say these extra transmitters are worth 10 million soulcash and the discount is 99.999999%??? Also, if GF is including the extra transmitters in the Akasha pack price, it is also illegal to market hidden and limited transmitters as "discounted" when they were never sold for their normal price.

    You are correct and Gameforge gets away with this because nobody is challenging them legally on their false advertisement.
