Re: Conquer Cup/Credits. Allow me to buy them for you.

Postby darth emperor on Sun Jan 06, 2013 6:56 am

What about a midway? Instead of giving 500 credits, or a place in a Conquer Cup, you get an invitation for a Conquer Cup, which you can use it for the next Conquer Cup, or for another that you fancy more. (All this supposing that they are going to make different types of Conquer Cup).

Like that is like you give them 500 credits, but only usable for the Conquer Cup, so it will maintain the "tangible feel", that the credits don't give. And it won't be forced to play someone who is inactive or doesn't want.

So from what I am reading darth, you want the ability to buy the credits for a conquer cup, but maybe not for the next one out? But have them use it only for a conquer cup and not a premium. If this is correct, that I feel that this might end up being more complicated than it needs to be. Also, not everyone may want to join any cup. I have been trying to keep this very simple and have a one type fits all option. I am sure if players say to each other, I am going to buy you into the next cup, they will say no thanks but you can always do it for the one after.

Yes, but not that exactly. What I mean (well maybe I'm thinking more as a tourney prize than anything else), is like a coupon without expire date that you can trade for a Conquer Cup entry.

Do you remember when the admins, were giving away 2 free speed games to all active freemiums? Some people did spend them right away, while others decided to use it 2 years later. You decided when to use it.


Edit: While, i'm more in favour of the credits, this is more for those who wanted a more tangible gift, and not risk that the player deadbeats, because he is not there. Avoiding that someone decides to buy all the entries of a conquer cup, give to people who are not active, and then win the cup :lol:

So then why not just buy the credits, they have no expire date on them.

You are right though, the original idea was for tourney prizes but also as a way for players to say thanks. Many players comment no my maps with no reward. Sometimes I would like to say thanks for helping out.

I love this idea! I think keeping it as simple as possible is best. By simply offering a 500 point purchase (which is the standard entry fee)
people could show appreciation for like $5. Whether that is used to join a conq cup game, or saved and added to current points doesnt really matter.

I would be ok with it for a tournament prize.

I like this suggestion a lot, I just don't want people to get into the Cup if they don't want to play those games.

And thats the good thing about this. If you are unsure if a player wants cup play, you can get the credits. As a tourney prize, you can offer one or the other, either or both. With the amended suggestion, you can do what you want, how you want, when you want. I am sure that if a cup was offered as a prize, a tourney winner could ask for the credits instead.

But right now, I have no way of buying a conquer cup entry for you. I can go and buy you premium and that is all nice. But if I wanted to give you thanks, that is the only way I can show it. For all the 25$ that people spend on each other here, I believe that the 5$ cup/credits will be spent far more widely. This gives extra revenue to the site for bigger cars and houses more programmers.

Well, I don't know if I would ascribe divine powers to it. But it's certainly a good idea!

I think that the new ownership just needs to look at this to see what they think. I don't know why they would particularly have a problem with people paying money on the site. I already presented the only argument (a weak one) against this earlier.

STICKIED for now. This should probably be submitted unless there is a reason why the new ownership does not want to allow people to pay for credits.
