More donation tiers
« on: June 09, 2013, 04:27:56 am »

How about more than just kyuubi for donating?

Example (These are not the official tier prices/ranks just an example ~) :

$5 - Kyuubi (10 days)
$10 - One free KG reset
$15 - One free name change.

Things like that. Some people have no use for the kyuubi since they don't level. They want to donate to the site still, so could you do this? I don't see it as a bad idea. Adding more things would increase more donations, no?

Modified: These may or may not stack. Meaning you donate $15, you get all three. :D

No, they are allowed to change their current resets. The red kyuubi allows you to epic level. If I donated $40 I could get one day oro kills quickly and get reborn in a few days. Red kyuubi is basically buying resets, technically.

Because that would defeat the purpose of the game. >>

SL would become a "Buy to win" game. In the short term, that would rake in money, but long term wise, it would fail to keep players interested in the "in game" aspect of SL.

Don't worry, I feel for you...every game has a grinding aspect where it gets to the point that you have to put so much in to get very little out.
Now getting back on topic, to compensate you can blow cash to make leveling super easy. I just don't think each reset should be bought.

I'd rather propose bonus DP for higher donations.
Wouldn't hurt anybody.

One issue I have with the tiers: I had several people donating $2 * 3, which won't get Kyuubi. Hence I don't really like the step-idea.

I wouldn't give away stuff you'd also get for DP - would defeat the purpose.

Either we'd give out stuff that is special / not bought with DP, or we just give out "extras".

"Extras" are very easy to program into the current system.

Well, you've already got mercenaries in the game... why not give those that donate $2-3 one of them as 'bonus' to the dp. It's not as good the Kyuubi, but it keeps them interested. And, every bit helps those who need it and don't know the game as well as others.

It can even be as simple as $2 get you 1 nin and $3 gets you 1 nin and a medical nin to assist you. Essentially, you get 'stackable' mount/help. Now, how long they stick around can be determined like the Kyuubi (same amount of days or less).

That's simple enough without changing anything to drastically.
