Special offers are a way for Plato to "force" you to buy gold with real money.
Well, even if eRepublik is a free game, it’s normal that admins want to make profit in order to pay their bills.
Special offers give you real advantage in the game face to the others players who don't pay.
They are in eRepublik since the beginning, and they are always proposed for a limited duration. A special offer often introduce a new game mechanics (new company, new building, new weapon).
This article will try to analyse 2.5 months of special offer.
Who bet for a FP for this article ? Even if I don't violate one of the Republik laws ?

Personal analysis about Special Offer:
Few months ago, a special offer was really... a special offer. We used to see one offer per week, for a very limited duration.
Now, you can easily bet on a special offer (or 2 or 3 cumulated) every week, for a period which increase more and more.
I’m totally agree with the fact that admins need RL money to keep this game free for everyone. Because yes, nobody is forced to buy golds and they are lots of players who played this game since 4 years without spend 1 euro/dollar.
If I had published this article few days ago, I will have wrote than Admins use all their energy to create special offers instead of fix/implement news games updates.
The last updates about wellness, congress elections, government titles, creation (useless) of the battle of Alliances.. enable me to think that, maybe, all is not over here.
I’m less agree with the fact that now, if you don’t spend money here, it’s impossible for a player to become “someone” (you can check my last article if you don’t understand).
Moreover, it seems that we passed from "limited offer" to "offer everyday"... After the creation of lots of contests on Facebook in order to convince players to join the official eRepublik Facebook page, admins tried to implement Special Offer on Facebook...
So, what will be the next step ?
