Pay-To-Play Guide - Buy the Best Deals

Updated December 15, 2019

Introduction

Welcome to the Clash of Streamers Pay-To-Play Guide; a guide on the best purchases as well as how to maximize your account progression by spending money.

Making any purchases can be a great way to help you progress faster in Clash of Streamers. Not only that, but it is also great way to help support a charitable cause.

Every dollar spent towards Clash of Streamers goes to support a universal basic income (DUBI) pilot program headed by the game creator Athene together with the charity organization Save the Children.

Not only will your purchases help you enjoy the game more by allowing you to progress at a faster rate, you can rest easy knowing that your money is going towards a good cause.

Since there are so many different purchases available, we’ll be discussing some of the best purchases in-depth to determine which purchases are the best for your overall progression.

Make sure to read the whole guide before you start making purchases!

This way you’ll have the whole picture in mind and know exactly what to purchase to suit your needs best.

VIP Levels

VIP levels are levels you gain by completing in game purchases. Almost every purchase will grant you VIP experience, which will slowly increase your VIP level.

Each VIP level gained will give you several rewards and permanent account benefits for reaching the milestones.

Almost every purchase will grant you VIP experience, which will slowly increase your VIP Level.

Not only that, the sooner you get to your desired VIP level, the better. This is because the majority of your account progression from VIP levels will come from the permanent account benefits that the different levels bring.

Which VIP level should you aim to reach?

While you can certainly make a case for why every single VIP level has some extremely significant benefits, there are a couple different VIP levels that stand above the rest.

The two best VIP levels are the following:

  • VIP Level 1
  • VIP Level 3

VIP level 1 will give you a double login bonus as well as the ability to skip all daily ads. The convenience and bonus loot from this VIP level is incredible for the small price it takes to get there.

On the other hand, VIP level 3 will give you Shiny Legendary Account Trust, which gives you the ability to take part in the highest stake games of Poker, Blackjack, Roulette and Slot Bingo.

By the time you reach VIP level 3, you would have received the following rewards:

  • 850K Gems
  • 430 Crypton
  • 18 TriHard Scrolls
  • 1 Kappa Scroll
  • Eight 4-star level 4 heroes
  • Four 5-star level 5 heroes

And you will have access to the following permanent benefits:

  • Double login reward
  • Skip all daily ads
  • Shiny Legendary stake
  • Daily Mega Battle Max
  • +2 daily free pet attracts
  • +9 daily TriHard summons
  • +3 daily Get Lucky spins
  • +3 daily Athene's Church spins
  • +22% trust score gain
  • +225% Gems to charity
  • +17% Bad Luck Jackpot points
  • +36K daily free Gems from Monthly Card

As you can probably tell, most of the VIP benefits come from the permanent account benefits. As you reach higher and higher VIP levels, you will gain more and more of these permanent account benefits.

Since every VIP level will provide additional value to your account on a daily basis, you should aim to get as high of a VIP level as you can afford, as soon as possible.

Throughout the rest of this guide, you will learn about the best purchases you can make to get you to these VIP levels and beyond.

Sale Points

Sale points are simply rewards that you get for purchasing limited time deals. For each limited time deal that you buy, you will receive 1 sale point.

All of the following will reward you with sale points:

  • Daily/Weekly/Monthly Sales
  • Special Offers
  • Seasonal Challenge Gold Pass

As you accumulate sale points, you can use them to get discounts towards any other in-game purchase. 

For every 5 sale points, you will get an additional 20% discount on your next purchase.

This means that when you have 25 sale points, you can get any in-game purchase for free. You can get the cheapest deal for free, the most expensive deal for free, and anything in between. Every in-game purchase is free with 25 sale points!

This means that you can potentially get to an extremely high VIP level without spending very much money!

This is what allows sale points to contribute a huge amount to your overall progression. They give you the opportunity to purchase a ton of expensive deals without spending very much money, allowing you to reach higher VIP levels at almost no cost to you. 

As long as you are making the right purchases, you quickly rack up a ton of sale points and get some very expensive deals and tons of VIP exp for free.

The two best purchases which will help you accumulate a lot of sale points for very little money are the following:

  • Daily Sale (gives 1 sale point)
  • Seasonal Challenge Gold Pass (gives 30 sale points)

These are some of the cheapest purchases available, and will grant you the highest number of sale points relative to the amount of money spent.

A daily sale purchase will cost you only $1, and will grant you 1 sale point. 

For every $25 that you spend on daily sales, you can get any $100 purchase for free. 

This will grant you a ton of VIP experience, and a ton of loot for very little money spent. Although this is great for earning you a ton of sale points, it’s not the best purchase available.

If you complete the whole Seasonal Challenge and have purchased the Seasonal Gold Pass for $5, you will get 30 sale points. 

This means that you can essentially purchase the Gold Pass for $5, and have it for free for the rest of your life as long as you keep purchasing the Gold Pass with your sale points.

In the next section, you will learn more about the Seasonal Gold Pass as well as how the Seasonal Challenge works.

Seasonal Gold Pass

The Seasonal Gold Pass is likely the single most important in-game purchase that you can make. The Gold Pass gives you access to better rewards at each stage of the Seasonal Challenge, and overall, these rewards are massive.

For only $5, the Gold Pass can get you hundreds of dollars worth of progression; in some cases, potentially thousands.

Before we get into the Gold Pass, it’s important that you first have a solid understanding of what the Seasonal Challenge is. While the Seasonal Challenge is fairly self explanatory, we will give a brief explanation as to how it works.

The Seasonal Challenge boils down to the following principles:

  1. Collect Legendary Stars (from achievements and event progression).
  2. Claim rewards at different tiers of the Seasonal Challenge.
  3. After completing the Seasonal Challenge over the course of one month, wait until the next month starts to complete the next iteration of the Seasonal Challenge.

It’s as simple as that! A new Seasonal Challenge starts on the first day of each month, you collect Legendary Stars throughout the month and claim rewards inside the Seasonal Challenge based on the number of Legendary Stars collected.

Even as a free-to-play player, you can easily complete the whole Seasonal Challenge each month.

This makes the Seasonal Challenge an absolutely amazing way to collect a ton of loot for free.

The purpose of the Gold Pass is to amplify the loot from the Seasonal Challenge by granting you the ability to claim the top rewards.

Normally the rewards on the top are locked, but with the Gold Pass, you have the ability to claim each of the top rewards as you progress through the different Legendary Star tiers.

Overall, this allows you to claim a bunch of loot, up to 30 sale points, as well as a 9-star level 9 hero. All of this is insanely impactful to your account progression.

The Gold Pass should be an instant purchase if you are looking to spend money to progress quicker in Clash of Streamers!

With the sale points that you get from completing the Seasonal Challenge with the Gold Pass enabled, there are a couple different strategies that you can employ.

If you don’t plan on spending very much money to progress in Clash of Streamers, you should do the following:

  1. Buy the Seasonal Gold Pass.
  2. Complete the Seasonal Challenge.
  3. Use 25 of your 30 sale points next month to purchase another Seasonal Gold Pass.
  4. After five months of completing the Seasonal Challenge with the Gold Pass over and over again, use your extra 25 sale points to purchase an extremely valuable in-game purchase.

By doing this, you will be gaining thousands of dollars worth of progress for only $5. Needless to say, you won’t be able to get this value for your money anywhere else in-game.

If you are fine with spending a decent amount of money each month, you should do the following:

  1. Buy the Seasonal Gold Pass.
  2. Complete the Seasonal Challenge.
  3. Use 25 of your 30 sale points to purchase the highest value in-game purchase that you can find.
  4. Repurchase the Seasonal Gold Pass again the next month, and repeat.

By doing this, each month you will be gaining hundreds of dollars worth of additional progress for only $5.

Take a look at the different purchase strategies below for more info on what to buy based on your budget.

Subscriptions

Subscriptions also offer a ton of value for your money by giving you a gradual stream of rewards over time.

There are several subscription available to purchase in Clash of Streamers:

  • Monthly Card ($15 a month - instant 1M, daily 300K)
  • Community Card ($5 a month - daily 30K, daily Athene Coin, daily Community Chip)
  • Gem Mine Subscription ($1 a week - Gem Mine 25% increased output and 50% increased capacity)

These are relatively cheap purchases and will give you quite a bit of additional loot over the course of a month.

The Monthly Card and Gem Mine Subscription can both be found and purchased inside of the standard in-game shop.

On the other hand, the Community Card can be received by subscribing to a streamer who is a part of Clash of Streamers.

The equivalent of this Twitch subscription would be a join/membership on YouTube/Facebook.

The best value you can get for the Community Card comes from subscribing to AtheneLive on Twitch.

If you do so, you will receive the Community Card, his subscription skin, as well an addition 1M per month in the form of a rare Save the Children loot card.

The money spent for the Twitch subscription actually does not go into Athene’s pocket - it goes directly to Save the Children. You are directly supporting Save the Children’s charity efforts by making this purchase!

If you do this, it makes the Community Card an incredibly valuable purchase since you are getting more than 13M worth of loot (and a loot card & Athene skin) for only $5 a month.

Not only are you helping yourself get a ton of value, you are also helping people in impoverished regions around the world. Great deal!

To summarize, these subscriptions are some of the best deals in the game. All three of these subscriptions should be instant purchases if you are interested in paying money to help aid your progress.

Special Offers

Below the Seasonal Challenge icon, you will occasionally see a unique icon which represents a special offer.

Special offers are limited time deals which are often only available for several hours at a time!

These special offers are usually deals that give you a variety of rewards for very good value. To be more concrete, you will get much more value for your money through a few special offers than you ever could simply by purchasing Gems from the in-game shop.

In addition, each special offer purchased will also give you 1 sale point!

To date, there are five discovered special offers:

  • Boss Boost ($5 per month)
  • Campaign Boost ($5 per week)
  • 2M Gems Deal ($1 one time purchase)
  • Insanity Deal ($10 one time purchase)
  • Booster Package ($5 one time purchase)

To start, let's take a look at the Boss Boost and the Campaign Boost special offers.

Within the Campaign Tower, you'll receive a daily reward based on your current prestige and level in the Campaign Tower. By paying $5 a week to purchase the Campaign Boost, you'll be doubling your daily rewards from the Campaign Tower.

On the other hand, for $5 a month, the Boss Boost will double the rewards received from each level of the Boss Tower.

While these deals may not seem very good, they can provide you with incredible value.

It all depends on how far you've progressed within the Boss Tower and the Campaign Tower. The further you are, the better the rewards, and as a result, the more value you will get from these special offers.

In mid-game and late-game stages of Clash of Streamers, these deals can provide you with some absolutely insane value. For example, in very late-game prestiges in the Campaign Tower, you could be receiving 20-30 TriHard Scrolls per day as a daily reward. Doubling this can give you absolutely insane value. 

Make sure to keep an eye out for these deals as you play Clash of Streamers!

You also might find this special offer when playing Clash of Streamers:

I don't think much needs to be said about this deal. Around $1 USD for 2M + 50 VIP experience is absolutely ridiculous.

This is one cheap and extremely valuable purchase. Although it's only around $1, it gets you half-way to VIP level 1 which is huge if you're trying to increase your VIP level by spending as little as possible.

So, make sure you definitely buy this!

The Insanity Deal is a great mid-game deal for players looking to maximize the amount of loot gained looking into the late game.

You’ll find the Insanity Deal after reaching account power level 1. You’ll likely reach account power level 1 in anywhere from less than a day to several weeks; depending on how fast you play and how seriously you take the game.

The Insanity Deal grants you the following:

  • Instant 2M
  • 1M every time you reach a new account level
  • 100 VIP Exp.

This is a fantastic offer. By default, 2M offered for only $10 is already a considerably better deal than what you would get simply by purchasing Gems in the in-game shop.

So, even if we pretend that the 1M per level wasn’t part of the deal, you are already getting great value for your money. With the addition of the 1M per account power level, this could be one of the best deals in the game.

Of course, this means you would have to play a lot and gain a ton of account power levels. Whether you plan on it or not, the Insanity Deal is still a great purchase.

The Booster Package is a decent early-game deal which should be purchased if you are in dire need of a 7-star hero.

The Booster Package will often appear after long stretches of combat within the Campaign Tower. While it’s not as good as the previous special offers, it still has decent value which, under certain circumstances, definitely has the ability to help you a lot.

If a 7-star hero will improve your team by a great deal, then this purchase might be worth it.

The Booster Package grants you the following:

  • 250K Gems
  • A 7-star level 7 hero
  • 5 Kappa Scrolls

This offer is not as notable as the others. The value is still fairly good, but it loses its significance if you aren’t in immediate need of a 7-star hero or 5 Kappa Scrolls.

Because of this, you should only really look to get this deal if the addition of a 7-star hero will have a good impact on your team, or if the 5 Kappa Scrolls helps you to complete a Merchant deal or Weekly Event. If not, the value from the Gems doesn’t really make up for it since you can find improved value for your money in other places.

To summarize, every single special offer is a great deal and should be purchased by any player looking to maximize their money spent in Clash of Streamers! Be careful you don’t wait too long - they won’t be available forever!

Gaming for Good Shop

The Gaming for Good shop has the best deals in the game for bulk Gems and Crypton.

In fact, you are getting about a 4x better value for your money by purchasing Gems on the Gaming for Good shop than you might simply by purchasing the base Gem and Crypton packages in-game.

These purchases, however, cannot be fulfilled simply with regular fiat currencies (USD, CAD, EUR, AUD, etc). Instead, these purchases can only be fulfilled by spending the cryptocurrencies Purpose (PRPS) or Decentralized Universal Basic Income (DUBI).

You will see the following purchases available on the website:

These three Gaming for Good Gem packages have insanely better value than their in-game counterparts.

Although the prices are listed in PRPS and DUBI, their dollar values are as follows:

  • ~$3 for 1.2M, 300 & 18 VIP Exp
  • ~$30 for 12M, 3K & 180 VIP Exp
  • ~$75 for 30M, 7.5K & 450 VIP Exp

In Clash of Streamers, you can buy 15M for $100. With this purchase, you simply get the 15M. However, if you buy the third package for $75, you are rewarded with 30M, as well as 7.5K for free.

For $25 less, you are receiving:

  • 15M more Gems ($100 value)
  • 7.5K Crypton for free ($100 value)

Essentially, you are getting $300 worth of Gems and Crypton for only $75.

Due to the value received from these Gaming for Good Gem packages, you should ALWAYS come to the Gaming for Good shop if you are looking to buy bulk Gems or Crypton.

It really cannot be overstated how much better it is to buy Gems or Crypton from the Gaming for Good shop instead of the in-game shop.

You will be burning a lot of money for no valid reason if you choose to buy Gems or Crypton in-game instead of on the Gaming for Good shop. You have been warned!

Since all of these purchases are made by spending PRPS or DUBI, it’s best you read more about these cryptocurrencies in the PRPS & DUBI Guide.

If you are looking to get some PRPS/DUBI for some of these purchases, check out the Buying PRPS & DUBI Guide.

Low Spending Strategy

If you plan on spending a very small sum of money on Clash of Streamers, it’s important that you are getting the best possible value for your money.

If you plan on spending less than $10, you should do the following:

  1. Purchase the Seasonal Gold Pass (costs $5).
  2. Complete the Seasonal Challenge.
  3. Use 25 of your 30 sale points next month to purchase another Seasonal Gold Pass.
  4. Rinse and repeat.
  5. After five months of completing the Seasonal Challenge with the Gold Pass over and over, use your extra 25 sale points to purchase the most expensive Weekly/Monthly Sale.

As long as you are completing the Seasonal Challenge, you can continuously chain together Seasonal Gold Pass purchases and get thousands of dollars worth of value by only spending $5. 

However, if you can’t complete the Seasonal Challenge, you are missing out on a ton of value.

This is why it is extremely important that you manage your resources effectively, complete your Weekly Events regularly, and collect a ton of achievements for Legendary Stars.

Take a look at the Resource Management Guide for tips on managing your resources, the Weekly Events Guide for tips on completing Weekly Events, and the Achievement Farming Guide for the best ways to collect a ton of achievements.

You can also wait until you have completed the whole Seasonal Challenge before purchasing the Seasonal Gold Pass. This way, you can be sure that you will get the full 30 sale points which you can use towards the next month’s Seasonal Challenge. 

After many months of doing this strategy, you can easily get to at least VIP level 2 or 3 by only spending $5.

If you plan on spending less than $50, you should do the following:

  1. Purchase the Seasonal Gold Pass each month (costs $5) and complete the Seasonal Challenge.
  2. Purchase the 2M Gems special offer (costs $1 - gives 2M instantly).
  3. Purchase the Insanity Deal (costs $10 - gives 2M instantly and 1M per account level).
  4. Every time you accumulate 25 sale points, purchase the most expensive Weekly/Monthly Sale for free.
  5. When you do not wish to spend any more money, start using the accumulated sale points to repurchase the Seasonal Gold Pass for free next month (following the less than $10 strategy seen above).

Essentially, the bulk of the value gained from this strategy will be from the Seasonal Gold Pass and the Insanity Deal, and the primary goal is to maximize the long term viability of your account.

For only about 5 months time spent playing Clash of Streamers, you can get six $100 packages ($600 value), five 9-star level 9 heroes, and a bunch of other loot for only $25 worth of Seasonal Gold Pass purchases, and will gain a ton of extra Gems from all of your account levels due to the Insanity Deal.

By using this strategy, you can get to at least VIP level 4 after many months of playing. 

If you plan on spending less than $10 or less than $50, definitely employ these strategies; the impact on your account progression will be enormous!

High Spending Strategy

While you can get a ton of value by spending a very small amount of money, you can definitely get a lot more value if you have more money to spend.

If you are willing to spend hundreds of dollars, you should do the following:

  1. Purchase the Seasonal Gold Pass each month (costs $5) and complete the Seasonal Challenge.
  2. Purchase the 2M Gems special offer (costs $1 - gives 2M instantly).
  3. Purchase the Insanity Deal (costs $10 - gives 2M instantly and 1M per account level).
  4. Purchase the Monthly Card (costs $15 a month - gives 1M instantly and 300K+ daily).
  5. Get the Community Card by subscribing to AtheneLive on Twitch (costs $5 a month - gives daily 30k, daily Athene Coin, daily Community Chip, and a rare loot card which gives 1M).
  6. Purchase the Gem Mine Subscription (costs $1 a week - Gem Mine 25% increased output and 50% increased capacity).
  7. Purchase the Boss Boost Card (costs $5 a month - 2x loot from Boss Tower).
  8. Purchase the Campaign Boost (costs $5 a week - 2x daily Campaign Tower rewards).
  9. Purchase the Daily Sale each day to get sale points (costs $1 - gives you 1 sale point and other loot).
  10. Every 25 sale points that you accumulate, purchase the most expensive Monthly/Weekly Sale for free (usually costs around $100).
  11. When you wish to stop spending money, cancel all subscriptions, and start using the accumulated sale points to repurchase the Seasonal Gold Pass for free next month (following the less than $10 strategy seen above).

This strategy will get you an absolute ton of value on a regular basis through subscriptions, special offers, and sale points. The bulk of the loot will come in the form of free deals once you have accumulated a bunch of sale points.

With this strategy, every month you can get two different $100 Monthly/Weekly Sales for free.

You can quickly get a ton of VIP levels by following this strategy. It’s quite likely that after many months, you’ll be at least VIP level 5. These purchases will simply snowball your account progression over time.

Although the steps above will give you a ton of value overall, if you want to spend more, you should also do the following:

  1. Purchase Gaming for Good shop Gem packages.

If you ever look to purchase raw Gems and Crypton, the Gaming for Good shop offers the absolute best value.

You should never be spending any money on expensive Monthly/Weekly Sales or any of the base Gem or Crypton packages!

Even though you might get additional sale points from these expensive Monthly/Weekly Sales, the value still cannot match the Gem packages on the Gaming for Good shop. 

The only time you should get any of the expensive Monthly/Weekly Sales is if you are getting them for free through sale points.

Whenever you want to buy extra Gems or Crypton when you don’t get enough from the steps above, buy some Gem packages off of the Gaming for Good shop

You won’t get any better value for your money than on the Gaming for Good shop.

Whale Strategy

If you plan on spending an enormous amount of money regularly, you might not care about how you spend your money. However, you can still get a lot better value, and a lot more loot in the long run if you are spending your money in the right places.

If you plan on spending thousands of dollars playing Clash of Streamers, you should do the following:

  1. Purchase the Seasonal Gold Pass each month (costs $5) and complete the Seasonal Challenge.
  2. Purchase the 2M Gems special offer (costs $1 - gives 2M instantly).
  3. Purchase the Insanity Deal (costs $10 - gives 2M instantly and 1M per account level).
  4. Purchase the Monthly Card (costs $15 a month - gives 1M instantly and 300K+ daily).
  5. Get the Community Card by subscribing to AtheneLive on Twitch with a tier 3 subscription (costs $25 a month - gives daily 30k, daily Athene Coin, daily Community Chip, a rare loot card which gives 1M, and an epic loot card which gives 2M and 1K).
  6. Purchase the Gem Mine Subscription (costs $1 a week - Gem Mine 25% increased output and 50% increased capacity).
  7. Purchase the Boss Boost Card (costs $5 a month - 2x loot from Boss Tower).
  8. Purchase the Campaign Boost (costs $5 a week - 2x daily Campaign Tower rewards).
  9. Purchase the Daily Sale each day to get sale points (costs $1 - gives you 1 sale point and other loot).
  10. Every 25 sale points that you accumulate, purchase the most expensive Monthly/Weekly Sale for free (usually costs around $100).
  11. Purchase Gem packages off of the Gaming for Good shop whenever you need extra Gems (costs $75 worth of PRPS or DUBI for the most expensive package - gives 30M and 7.5K).
  12. Purchase the subscription package off of the Gaming for Good shop (gives you access to all building subscriptions that are normally locked behind riddles in-game).

These are likely the best purchases that you can make if you plan on spending tons of money. 

Whenever you are looking to get a lot more loot, simply buy Gem packages off of the Gaming for Good shop. You can do this as many times as you like, and you will get a ton of value from it overall.

Additionally, you could also always buy an Insanity Chip or an Ascendance Chip off of the Gaming for Good shop.

These purchases will also give you a ton of value. However, relatively speaking, the value is not as good as the Gem packages. This is because you have the potential to win big from an Insanity/Ascendance spin, but also the potential to win very little.

It is always safer to purchase the Gem packages, however you are definitely free to purchase an Insanity Chip or Ascendance Chip if you want to get a ton of loot quickly!
