Re: Finally Some News: The Beginning

i know very strange point,
but i am not very satisfied from means of visiuality...
many will have a few of diamond medals once it gets released but then from visiuality measures, if this diamond medal, any chance going to look better than we have it gold right now ?

i just dont want diamond medals to look like a black spider on the white carpet... color combinations is a fail IMO.
i dont really care if it looks like to diamond piece, in jewelery offices, diamond pieces are made combo with ruby/sapphire/etc stones so medal should not be all dark because we call it to be diamond...loook at standard gold medal icon, and if red color has got anything to do with gold ? But it is well red dominating more than gold yellow.

Well, idea is superb !!!
On the other hand, maybe we reconsider the diamond colors, i am all good with very shiney white dominating medal icons, or if you are making it dark background, then add some powerfull colors in it, such as ruby color instead turquaz, or add gold yellow in it instead turquaz, just try it out then you will see it better company with existing gold medals...If you keep this look, then really between gold medals, this new medal is not going to fit well.

Ads, are you serious, ok, they are not that bad, but really? I don't have money to spend on an online game to get premium, also, I want a game limit so I don't overfill my day with games. Could you put the ads at the bottom of the page? How do they benefit the site? How many people would it take to overturn this new announcement?


I like more medals, but, hey, I don't even have any gold yet...

well you could ask yourself the question the other way around. how do you benefit the site? As anything free on internet, you got to see ads in return. Just give me a non merchant site free of use without ads, it's just stupid not to monetize these pages (even if adsense isn't gonna bring a very effective CPM..). If you are not willing to pay to play, advertising exposure seems more than reasonable.


oh and just realized 1500 was just for ratings (reasonable for that one). I overlooked the wording! ;)
So looks like other medals will most likely be at 1000-1200 as I initially understood from the medal suggestions! :)

Ummm... by bringing in revenue? Of course no one likes ads, but this site has made nothing off of free players until now. This is a business. Premium players bring in revenue and, now, so do we. As a free player, at the moment, I support this move. Makes complete sense to me. If it bothers people, maybe they'll pony up for premium.

Actually, for some reason they've decided to call it "Diamond". It sure looks more like a medal for platinum.

MegaProphet, thanks for that. Does not look that bad. I know it could get annoying but as long as it stays on the freeium side of things, I am happy. So this is really only on game pages. Again, not so intrusive. It makes sense to have them to pay for programmers/updates.

like I said I read the OP too fast. I thought rds meant all medals needed 1500 unique kills, he was just talking about ratings. Ratings is the easiest medal, and even if i'm far from 1500 it's just about rating all finished games win or lose. I guess people will start rating again! ;)
I'm on the same page now, and I'm pretty sure the uniques required for all other medals is 1000-1200 which is cool! :D

Is that just an example ad or a real ad? If it's a real ad, it's not very well executed. You can't even tell what it's advertising.

Not CC's problem.

CC is advertising exactly what the advertiser is giving them, I would assume.
