F2P ZC User Complaints + No Money Spending Tips!!!

Forum Index > PokéFarm > Discussion >

Pages: 12345

I'm not exactly sure if I this is where I should start the thread, but I guess it did say discussion and while I'm here to complain, I'm also here to ask for tips. So, I'm a very strict non-ZC user, and my hunt hasn't been exactly going very well for me. I REALLY don't want to use ZC(don't ask why), or rather, I don't want to spend money on this game(no offense, Niet, but, er, I need to save up money). So now, I need to think of ways to get ZC without actually spending money. Other than having other people pay me(because my trade shop isn't going too well), what else can I do to get ZC? Okay, now, to complain about my non-ZC usage. ZC...is horrible. I want a PR Memory Stick...no ZC. I want to buy charms...no ZC. I was...bascially everything but no ZC. *Sigh* Will edit later to think of more ways to complain 'bout ZC without sounding rude or crazy.

So, I personally would trade currencies for ZC with other users - sometimes people are willing to convert CR for it, and I usually just pawn a bunch of things on the market for the CR. It can take a lot of time, and then finding someone to buy currency from is also pretty difficult, but it's A Method(tm) For the PR memory stick, it's about 1mil CR on the market in and of itself - That's how I bought my last one!

This is gonna be a bit long, bear with me '^^ If you want my direct, honest advice - sell summon items for ZC in your shop and keep the stock updated. People are always buying summons with ZC. You should also send scour teams out every hour to get boxes/credits. By the way, how many pokemon can you send scouring at once? Do you have 2 extra scour slots and 2 extra scour boosts? It's important to have those to get boxes more frequently.

My personal advice/experience

You can still be a free to play user and have the same benefits as everyone else! Credits are easy to get. Clicking pokemon, selling items (from your inventory or the market), selling pokemon, or offering paid services (dexing, rentals, etc.) can earn you some credits. There's also a list of tasks at the bottom of your "Party" page that you can complete for extra credits too! All of this to say that the Market can be your friend. Spend those credits in the Market to buy stuff that you'd usually buy with ZC (like Hypermode, Shiny Charms, Memory Stick) If getting ZC is the goal then you have to think about what people spend ZC for. (Look at other Trade Shops and see what sells well and what doesn't) Selling BoxBoxes, D/S/A/M pokemon, or Summon Items tend to bring in a decent amount of ZC! You'll have to make sure to keep up your stock, though (this keeps consistent customers). And now about your shop... I hate to be that guy but, maybe your shop isn't doing so well because you don't offer a ton of common services right now? More importantly, I see a lot of vacant tabs in there. It'll help your shop if you bulk your stock a little! ^^

The way I get ZC as a free to play user is by selling box boxes. I sell each one for 120ZC. If you trade out scour teams once they hit 0% energy and are active about checking them all day, it won’t take you too long to get enough boxes to make one.

Honestly some of the feedback here could be a Guide. I'm sure plenty of people would benefit from a "How to be competitive as a F2P player" guide! As I've tried to explain in the past, PFQ has taken deliberate steps to ensure everyone has theoretical access to everything, but hearing it from a fellow user will certainly be more effective, along with some actionable options that aren't my "you could do this" suggestions, but rather an actual user's "I did this, you can too" experiences.

In my opinion selling boxboxes and summons are the best ways ^^ It doesnt really matter what currency you sell them for as you can always exchange them with other users in the trade forums

Hey hey! So I am also a free-to-play user who is just about to get a year of hypermode without spending money (as soon as a credits for zc deal goes through), and here's the biggest ways I earned money - Scours The absolute biggest source of my ZC was boxboxes, I sold them for between 110-120 ZC per and if you do enough scouring it can be a pretty steady source of income. Evolution items also can sell for a lot if you're willing - Contests There's a whole guide for contests but the main line is it can get you a LOT of GP, which you can trade other players for ZC, Fabulous friday also ties into this as it can get you a lot of GP for just 3k interactions - Tournaments While this was only about 500 ZC for me, doing the tournaments and then selling the tokens for about 20 ZC per token helped me a lot, especially since there's other ways to get things from the shop, e.g trading with other players, you have to wait for the new ones to be breedable I believe but a pair is much cheaper than a tournament token
