so i played a song, spend 750 coins on a load out, earned 250coins for a 5* performance... ye i can see how long im going to get to play without having to "grind" more coins...
And if it was the first time you had played that song you would have gotten an additional 250 coins. And if you were playing it in a Score War you would have gotten an additional 250 coins if you lost and another 750 if you won. And if it was part of a goal it would have gone toward earning 2,500 coins. You don't have to grind if you take advantage of the other options available to you. I earned ~10,000 coins in just a few hours and I never played the same song twice.

How would we sell you a Facebook app? You seem awfully convinced we're trying to nickel and dime people with something here and I'm not sure why, especially when we didn't charge to export the Blitz soundtrack to your RB library and we didn't charge to make the entire RB library functional in Blitz. We're not out to cheat people.

Drats, foiled again!

RB has competitive leaderboards, and you can restart as much as you want, but I guess the power-up thing is the difference. Maybe I'm just an old, jaded gamer, but I don't have the time for such an economy system where you lose progress in a sense.
That's all totally fair. None of our games will appeal to everyone, that's just the way it is. Some people may not like the game play or the coin economy or the (optional) RB World integration or the leaderboard battles and that's fine. All we can do is try to pack as much value into the game so that people are able to enjoy it either as a standalone title or for its value as RB3 DLC.
