Personally, it seems like a lot of effort with the expectation of a loss. never during my playthrough did I feel like I needed an XP boost or stuff like that so I'm curious if there's any revenue in that. I feel like most pirates hide behind the reason that "well there should be a free trial version". If you had a free version then they'd have no excuse.
It seems like such a widespread problem that you'd think developers would say "sorry, you can't have nice things" on Android or at least make a much bigger stink about it so that Google locks things down a bit more so that developers can deservedly make a living off their hard work.
As was mentioned by someone else, I'd rather you focused your efforts by adding new content for those who paid. if required, I'd even throw a couple dollars if there was an IAP for additional content...
