VIP Program makeover
The VIP program has just recieved a much needed makeover. Several changes have been made, all of which benefit the player....
To start things off, Ludia has again reduced the cost of VIP dinos. With a VIP program membership, VIP creatures now cost 10,000 VIP points. This is the second reduction Ludia has made in the price. Originally costing 30,000 points, the first reduction cut that price in half. With this second reduction, VIP creatures now cost 1/3 of their original price.
That's just 1 of the changes Ludia has made to the program. The next improvement that has been made was very much needed. VIP dinos now unlock in the market after purchase! They will still cost 10,000 VIP points each and they can not be purchased with DNA. But with this improvement, once you have accumulated enough points, you can now level up VIP creatures without having to wait for them to be re-released. To make the purchase, just find the creature in the marketplace (filter the market by creature class to get the one you want to show up) and click where it says "search". This will allow you to buy that creature.
It doesn't stop there either. Ludia has also added a "Solid Gold" cark park to the VIP market. This pack will cost you half of the above metioned 10,000 VIP creature purchase price, giving you a random VIP creature for the price of 5,000 VIP points. Considering the original 30,000 VIP point purchase price of VIP creatures, this solid gold pack truly is solid gold. That is if you're willing to recieve a random VIP creature.
So, with these most recent (and much needed) improvements to the VIP program, a VIP membership purchase is more worthwhile than it has ever been. It seems Ludia is listening to the players many complaints about the VIP program. Combine these improvements with the random legendary creature you get with the purchase of a VIP membership, for the very first time since it was introduced, I can honestly say a VIP membership is actually worth getting. Kudos to Ludia for that.
In addition to the changes above, I have just noticed that decorations bonus' have doubled on the VIP decorations. They now range from a 10% - 16% bonus, whereas they ranged from a 5% - 8% bonus before. The rate of coin production on VIP buildings has also been doubled. The battle stats for VIP creatures remain unchanged.
