That may be true, but with a price increase, the game loading wouldn't really save anyone much money. I would not offer anything below 3 months. I may try something like:

  • 3 months for $10
  • 6 months for $18
  • 12 months for $30
  • 24 months for $50
  • 5 years for $100

A little price increase for the normal year, but I think that's reasonable after more than 6 years. Not only that, the smaller chunks should bring more money.


I think if you increased the first two on the list to $12.50 and $20.00 that would pretty much eliminate the advantage of loading up on games after the three month or six month premium expires.

The real problem with the lower length of times and rates would be the cost. Credit cards cost the merchant money to process. They usually pay a percentage of the amount being paid and a transaction fee. Being on the internet the fees are probably higher because there is more fraud. Also if the payments go to another country there are probably fees for currency conversion.

I think the real idea is to simply increase the value of Premium Membership, by adding more perks and features, something I was always pushing for. Then when you gift someone a premium, and re-up yourself, you feel you are getting a good deal because of all the extras and perks, and less because you got a price-break sort of good deal.

If I understand the general mood of the serious CC players that love this site and wants it's best while looking after they're own best, I thing the only thing we want is that the leadership of the site spend more time on implementing good suggestions, and making things easier for the foundry.

This site has SO much potential for the owner if they would only do this. Hell another risk site was made simply because serious players felt the people in charge here weren't paying attention, were ignoring them. Go just a little way into getting stuck into the suggestions forum and listening to the foundry folk, and it will pay tenfold. (yes, pay as in dollars in the owners bank account.)

at the end of the 3 months, join a ton of games. stay freemium for 3 months.
buy another 3 months, at the end of that 3 mths join a ton of games again.


at the 12 month anniversay CC has made $20 yet yearly membership is $25 and $30 under your pricing.


in short, CC loses.


Joining a ton of games does not necessarily mean they'll last 3 months. Just gives you a big workload for a month, and two months of nothing.

So are we all agreeing CC should give us move options when buying premium?

I am not sure why you quoted me, but I agree? :)

I still think the real idea should be to increase the value of Premium by adding extra perks and benefits, so the deal is in the value of what you for your purchase, not because you got some price break deal.
