GL in some ways are a miss leading bunch of aholes, ferret and co have no influence over this type of advertising and are just pawns. I really wish that GL will sort their shite out and promote the game in it's true form.
That is it is a money grabbing entity, sucking players in and making them pay to advance.
This is a 'Pay to Stay" game, "No Pay" you will get left behind.

Rather than starting a new thread... Here's another example for the record - see screen pics. Read above for explanation.

9* SM advertised - only 2* to 8* SMs (not upgraded) offered.

Yes that is what happens. There can be a 9* sm if you compete and upgrade. Advertising final reward if done. Falls within nearly all countries advertising laws.

Maybe those with deep pockets can purchase enough of these to get ready to upgrade to 11* SM - or even 12*, 13*, etc. SM (when they become possible). :D

If you buy 6 of those that will complete VIP so in total you will have enough squad to make 8 x 8*

which become 4 x 9*. 2 x 10*, so when 11* are available you are ready to roll..

based on the assumption one has enough DP to do so
9* to 10* 3500 times 2 7000
8* to 9* 2200 times 4 8800

15k already not including those below 8* and the thought of another 3500 to kick it to an 11*

You get 15k for HOF

2 x 10% protectors maybe worthwhile with the potential of an 11* as soon as they are released.
