    Favor to Gem Exchange

    Hello Fello Smite members.

    Would anyone else be interested in wanting to be able to exchange favor for gems. I know this is an issue that myself and a few other players would be interested in because favor is given more often than gems. Or at least have gems offered more often than just two days of the week?

    the biggest issue here is the ratio turn out. how much favor equal how many gems?

    another problem would be the fact that gems basicly fund smite, since it is a ftp game. though the drop off might be low at first (depending on the ratio) who's to say that everyone won't just stop buying gems eventually. this of course causes issues, does hi-rez undo the option to acquire gems with favor? alter the favor to gem ratio (more favor for less gems)? actually charge people once to get the game ($30 or something)?

    Yeah this is a f2p game so gems are how they make money. If they did though I could see 10k favor for 100 gems.

    I don't that this will happen considering for log in bonuses you can earn 50 gems per week.

    It would devalue gems, which could also lead to no more free gem weekends, less gem sales. Because I think Hirez have been good with the amount of free gems events they have done.

    Of course I would, but the truth of the matter is that they already give you 50 gems for just logging in once a day for a week, plus there are the events which happen, and then theres also the fact you don't have to spend a penny to play this fine game, which is why I buy gems. Smite has saved me a fortune due to not buying over-hyped AAA done in three days or grind for a month before the mundanity of it all forces you to cave your own skull in games, and for that I give Hi-Rez money. If you enjoy the product then reward them, don't ask for more free stuff

    I appreciate all the free things Hi-Rez gives us. I'm in the process of saving up a few dollars to buy the Complete God Pack just because I feel bad for having played it for free for five months.

    Honestly buy gems, you can unlock the gods with the renown you get and use the gems for some skins you want. Thats what I did, the progression side of unlocking gods was quite motivating, at least it was for me

    I'd have to disagree with the favor to gems idea, but maybe a bonus amount of gems for logging in for a month straight?

    i'd also be agreeable to more gem events on weekends. maybe one a month. they don't need to be big ones, even if i'm only grabbing like 100 gems for the entire weekend by doing <something> then thats fine

    I've spent more money on this F2P game than a handful of AAA titles at full retail , so while I am glad there is the 50 gems a week thing , it doesn't add up to much for me. It would be nice if consoles could get a few more gems considering you can get free PC gems in a number of other ways.
