I know the machetes thing has ben going on and on and on... i would like to add TWO SUPER IMPORTANT NOTES into consideration of game moderator
1- Middle eastern people, and more than half the countries of the world are banned from credit cards systems (like Paypal, Visa and Mastercard). I MEAN YES THEY CAN AFFORD TO BUY GOLD BUT THERE WOULD BE NO FREAKIN' WAY THEY CAN EVER PURCHASE IT (unless they ask some friend or relative from abroad to have it done for them, then they send the money some other way back to him like via western union or some other stuff... totally it's an OMG situation and double waste of time considering the huge amount of time consumed by the game itself).
2- That's why games usually play by the rule that (cash can make it faster and easier for you to play, not possible to play). if you can't pay "either by not having the money or not having the ability to purchase" you don't have to get the game out of your mind.
So you can make it really better by making machetes a 2-way available. one of them is free and super awful like spending 10000 coins for a machete in addition to the option of spending 15 Golds for 10 machetes (which will be the equivalent then for like 150000 coins then, DAMN!).
this is a win win situation. game will spread like 10 times more, be a huge-time-spender like 100 times more, and help people who can't buy gold but still be a pain in the ass for those who ACTUALLY HAVE THE CASH AND ABLE TO SPEND IT.
There are like 100M users in the Middle East alone, Don't lose them knowing that they can't pay you either way
Thanks for listening to me, anyone
