I just wish EA/Popcap would quit having these 'Seedium' plants.

 

It's been claimed that players 'requested' it. Well I certainly didn't and I don't recall ever being asked. I'm also willing to bet that any players who may have expressed such a wish are now deeply regretting it.

 

It's put out that it's a way for players who don't wish to pay cash for a plant to still get them, but it then makes getting them next to impossible for most players.

 

It takes a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time to accumulate the 250 dedicated seeds using only Epic Quests, Pinata Trackers and Pinata Parties. Then, once you've finally acquired them, all they do is unlock the plant!!

 

You then have to earn more seeds to upgrade from level 1.

 

Unfortunately I can't see any way that EA/Popcap will discontinue with this method, but they could at least give players who are willing to pay out some cash the option to purchase the new plants outright for 5 Dollars/Pounds/Euros depending on where you live. (By this I mean the actual plants and NOT the seeds.)

 

There will, of course, be the option to gain the seeds through purchasing the Pinatas that give 10 seeds plus 10 random seeds from other plants for (25??) Gems. The trouble with that is by the time someone has purchased enough of the seeds, the Gems required work out to a cash equivalent of around 28 Dollars/Pounds/Euros.

 

This new method is touted as a means to provide a cheap way for players to acquire a 'Premium' plant. However, on my calculator 28 Dollars/Pounds/Euros IS NOT cheaper than 5 Dollars/Pounds/Euros.

I would like to point out that "seedium" plants are occasionally subject to a glitch whereby a player buys the plant for 250 seeds then immediately leaves the game then goes back to the plant in the almanac and (usually) the plant has unlocked and the 250 seeds are still available for upgrading (to level 5).

Still a very expensive way of buying a plant as Humplemann says, and making them time locked then selling the seed packets for gems is extracting the urine from players.

I'm still waiting for the "Humplemint" to be announced.

 

EDIT: the "WHAT PLAYERS WANT" post is still going if you want to leave short and to the point changes you'd like to see in the vain hope that someone in authority might one day read it and do something before the last spark of my optimism has been snuffed out.

Don't be fooled by any rumors you might have heard. Lots of people have assumed the same thing because it's been leaked that it'll be a 'cheapium', and we already know from our past experiences with Shadow Pea, Sling Pea, and Goo Pea just how expensive 'freemiums' turned out to be.
