So I finally did a teardown of the new DNA Production Facility. How much is it capable of producting? How many levels of production are there? What about the progress counter? How long until it is at maximum production? I have all the answers and all the numbers... and I suggest that you be sitting down for this one...
Before I spill the proverbial beans, let me first say this. In my previous blog post titled 'update 8', I stated my opinion about the update. In a nutshell, I said that the update was a likely a desperate attempt by Ludia to stop a sharp drop in number of players they were experiencing following update 7. Everything about the update screamed "we need marketing! We need it now!". The DNA factory fits right in with my thoughts on the rest of update 8. Why? Simply put... it's marketing. Hook, line & sinker.
I know... you want me to quit beating around the bush. Just spill it already. The truth about the new "VIP exclusive" DNA production facility is that it's a joke. Ludia clearly advertises that the faciliy produces "up to 2000 dna per day", which in itself is true. BUT, have you ever heard the term "the devil is in the details"? THIS is a PERFECT example of that term.
- Truth #1 (are you sitting? i suggest that you sit for this): Each activation is 12 hours in duration. To achieve maximum DNA production, the facility will first need to be activated 725 times. No, that is not a typo. It actually says 725 times.... at 12 hours each
- Truth #2 (again... you'll want to be sitting for this): So if you do math, it will take an absolute BARE MINIMUM of 1 full year before the facility produces 2000 dna/day. Realistically, when we factor in the "human element", it'll actually take 3 - 6 months more than that.
- Truth #3: In reality, this means you would need to purchase VIP membership not once, not twice, not even 5 times. You would need to purchase it 12 times... or more. Once per month.
