Look at the "benefits" of these badges and tell me which of those would be worth 99 $ or even 180 $.
I don't see any.
From the smaller "Plus" Membership:
a) +50% XPs and CC XPs - no monetary value
b) 2 (free) CC passes at a time - what would that be good for?
CDP, the most valid XP collector, is available only once daily
c) 8 hour CC pass generation - same as b)
You only receive one(!) extra CC pass daily.
d) 36 hour rentals - how often will you pull this one?
e) free daily scratcher on mobile - for useless coins.
