[Suggestion] Paying Player Bonuses

Post#1 » Mon Sep 12, 2016 11:14 am

It disgusts me that free players have all the same advantages that is paying players have. We support the game, pay salaries, pay for the server and other things that free players don't but we get NOTHING in return for our support. I think this should end. I think that those of us who pay to play should get bonuses for our support. What kind of bonuses should we get you ask....

1.) Bonus buildings. For every $100 a player pays they should get a bonus building that free players can't get. They could include:
A.) Another shield generator
B.) 2 extra turrents (possibly plasma cannons which can hurt all units)
C.) Another transport landing pad
D.) Another alloy plant
E.) Another credit plant
F.) A better barracks which has units not made in other barracks
G.) A second squad center
H.) A defensive grid which would regenerate shields and make cannons fire faster
I.) A crystal mining plant which would give 1 crystal every 20 minutes and could be upgraded with crystals to give more
J.) A second hero building
K.) A second fighter/bomber building

And for those who have supported the game with $1,000 or more only:
L.) A premium squad with room for up to 90 members, a uploaded squad logo and the ability to have up to 6 separate wars per 15 members each time with higher bonuses and squad levels.

These additions would give paying players extra bonuses that free players could not receive because they have not supported the game financially keeping the updates going, the server running and supporting the game.

So insta-air, zero minute deka upgrades and repairs and not having to deal with missing key offence while cantina/air/hero command isn't enough for you? Most of what you ask for you pretty much already get just by virtue of speeding up training and upgrade times.

And point "I.)"....? Free crystals for someone buying hundreds already? I mean? Really....?

And isn't speeding up air where most crystals go anyway? Why would you expect Disney to reward spending by cutting off the revenue stream.

I believe if you find a building with the word "Casino" written on it you will find many games that cater for your needs there. If the freemium players playing a freemium game disgust you, maybe the the problem isn't with the game.
So long and thanks for all the fish.

Live long and prosper.

Why don't you ask Disney if you can buy some medals also? You are a litte low for a level 7!

No offense man, but can you stop creating pointless threads like this already? You have more than an average player has. I adressed that issue in a previous thread you made about "premium squads" and some nonsense like that. I countered all your arguments and you never came up with an answer. So please stop making rant threads about you poor wallet warriors who are being mistreated in this game. It's getting really boring, not to mention laughable.

Thanks for all your pointless and trolling replies. It's good to see "free" players like yourselves demanding equality in the game even though not a one of you support the game financially, and if you say you do let me be the first to call you a liar. "Free" players would hate any idea which would give more advantages to "paying" players but that is exactly what Disney should do..... There is a long history of on-line games which had support from paying players and those players didn't get any bonuses or anything special or more things than the free players did.... and after 2 to 3 years the paying players said enough was enough and left.... and all those games are no longer in existence....

This is a call to Disney to wake up and smell the coffee before it's too late and this game goes down in history as another free players dream.....

If Disney really believes that giving no extra bonuses to "paying" players then in time their revenue stream will get cut off and you "free" players will have to go find another game to ruin....

I wonder what Disney would think if someone wanted to stay in the Cinderella Castle at Disneyland but didn't want to pay for the suite...... That is essentially what you "free" players want.... You want to pay for nothing and not let the "paying" players have any bonuses or extras which can make it harder for you to attack or defend them....

My medals are low because I have a job, family, and other obligations which take time away from the game, unlike you, who lives with his mommy and sits on his butt all day long playing games and complaining about how "paying" players get better items, more things, and unfair advantages in other games.... and how you want to shoot down any idea that gives "premium" players those unfair advantages in your "free" game....

No offense taken...., none of my threads or replies are pointless.... it's replies like your classic troll response that are pointless.... if that offends you, too bad..... trolls usually get offended when they are in the spotlight.....

You're right.... how about all of us "paying" players just stop paying anything else to Disney.... We can all send in support tickets asking that they make the game "pay to play" instead.... it wouldn't matter to us because we already pay for it and Disney wouldn't mind because they would keep their

See I never said this, I said things like keep the server open to you "free" players but give bonuses to us "paying" players.... things that the free players can't get.... but you guys hated this idea because it would give us "paying" players and unfair advantage over you.... So let's NOT do that.... let's just make the game PAY-TO-PLAY like World of Warcraft and many others and get rid of the players who do not support the game or the company who hosts it...... Doesa that work better for you "free" players? Or would you rather us "premium" players get things that you "free" players can't get unless you spend money.....


Your replies were both pointless and funny to read.... Keep up the good work trolling these forums..... I really needed a laugh today and you guys did not let me down..... THANK YOU!!!!

Dear Quan,
I have a job, I have a wife and I little 3 years old children.
I have all this medals because I play this game until 2014 and I have not spent a single cent. I prefer to spend my money in more interesting activity than a mobile game, but if you want to pay it's your decision.
I never complain nothing about cash player, if you have to pay it means that you are not able to wait for achieve the upgrades.
I think that are medals who make the difference between a good player and a shiftless, and unfortunately you can't buy them.
So please stop this buffoonery and shut up.

The game means something different to just about everybody. I have fielded questions about buying crystals from many of my squad mates as they progress in the game. I tell them all the same thing. If you want to buy crystals buy them. If you don't then don't. Buying crystals speeds upgrades, attack turn arounds, etc and if you want those things then by all means do it. If you don't want to buy crystals understand that the game will require a lot more patience, but it can still be entertaining to play. Some guys buy a lot of crystals, some don't buy any, some are medal hunters, some just go after resources and sacrifice medals. We all play the game for our own personal desires and the good thing is that the game works no matter how you want to do it.

EVERYONE;

Please stay on TOPIC and not devolve into name calling or use of abusive language. If this Thread loses "focus" than I may have to take "Moderator Action".

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

NOW ON TOPIC:

The "core suggestion / idea" put forth by QuanDanner is valid - this being:

Give Players willing to spend money the ability to buy "optional game enhancements" not available to the Non-Paying Players, but not needed to play game.

Lets look "realistically" at some of QuanDanner's current suggestions:

1. Bonus buildings.

  1. The concept of purchasing "Additional Permanent Structures" has problems like the current limit in available "construction space" and the issue of how to limit number of times a particular additional Structure could be purchased. What would Players think when they see a Wallet Warrior Base with 10 Shield Generators (4 Standard + 6 Optional Purchase)?

  2. The concept of an additional Barracks with Units not made in other Barracks is already being done somewhat with the Cantina. (see Suggestion Addition below)

  3. The concept of a defensive grid which would regenerate shields and make cannons fire faster is interesting that is best handled by a different means (see Suggestion Addition below)
2. Crystal Mining Plant.

One of the key ways that Disney gets a revenue stream from SWC is by Players purchasing Crystal Packs. That said, the Crystal Mining Plant is already In-Game in the form of Rocks, Rubble, Debris, etc, found scattered around a Players Base which the Players can "mine" for a chance of Crystals. Adding anything which gives Players less incentive to spend Money is not a good business decision and as such if implemented it must be done is a careful limited fashion.

3. Premium Squad.

Allowing more than 30 Members in a Squad has inherent issues, like how to reconcile a Squad with more than 30 Members into Squad Wars Matchmaking. If say a Squad had 90 Members would they be allowed to field 45 Members as a "Warring Party" and if so, than whom would they be matched with? Other 30 Member Squads? Only 90 Member Squads?

This is just one "issue" that could arise from Premium Squads.

Suggestion Addition:

The concept of purchasing optional "enhancements" is not new. Here are some ideas which would be nice to have:

  1. Building Skins. It would be nice if we could purchase some "rare looks / skins" that replace the current look of Base Structures.

  2. Unique / Rare Single Use Only Units. These would be Units already featured in the game but not available as Single-Use Only Units offered via Conflicts and Heroic Defense "events". Some I would like to see would be:

    • Un-Dead Troopers (formerly Death Troopers) - just for the fun of it!
    • Ithorian Infilitrators
    • Kabaz Invader
    • Rancor Variants (Rage, Shadow, Hunter)
    • Krayt Dragons (maybe special "variants")
  3. Base Perks. These would be "single-use perks" which would last for 12 Hours (like Squad Perks) which could include:

    • Upgrade Speed Increase (options for Double, or Triple with additional options for Single Structure and Base-wide)
    • Turret Range Increase (options for +1, +2 and +3 Tiles) **Can be applied to only one Turret
    • Backup Shield Generator - A limited time Structure with a Range of 5 Tiles (same as Level 1 Shield Generator) but Hitpoints of a Level 10 Shield Generator. Possible use in place of Shield Generator being Upgraded.
This TOPIC is worthy of addtional discussion.

syncpan77 - Thanks for posting.

Yes, I did recognize this Thread was meant to grab "attention" but whether or not by "intent" the "core suggestion" is a valid one worthy of debate despite the fact we have little or no chance of every seeing it implemented.

If others wish so, they may continue the discussion...

I'm not sure if you've realised it yet, but that bit should have been written by US and directed to YOU. You're the one who's in the spotlight because you are the one who created this thread and is now lashing out against the players who berate you for your own ignorance. You're the one who's creating the same old threads and cries about "poor wallet warriors being treated unfairly". Guess what: You wallet warriors have way more stuff than you deserve, from full air support to complete control of the leaderboards during conflicts. If you ask me, you guys should not only receive no extra stuff, but maybe have some privileges taken away some from you, in order to make you realize that all the privileges you have that we don't are more than enough to compensate for the money you're paying.
If you disagree, I'll be expecting you to counter all the arguments I layed on you on the previous thread you made. Until then, you won't be hearing any more from me. But if that day isn't coming, do us all a favor and shut up. In any case though, you are right on one thing: Trolls usually get offended when they are in the spotlight. Case and point: YOU.

DeathStriker, by all means, please go ahead and lock this thread down now before it escalates and gets out of control. This guy is obviously trying to pick a fight and this wouldn't be the first time, considering he has made other forums where he asks for more privileges to be given to wallet warriors (the last one being a thread about premium squads that could be created for a considerable amount of crystals). Besides, the matters that you listed have already been discussed and dropped numerous times, both here and on the Playdom forums. From my point of view, there really is nothing to discuss here. This thread will only serve to preserve an endless cycle of flaming. My suggestion is that you lock this thread down, just like you did with dogegriff's thread (nice going, btw, I waa expecting that to happen, I even warned the kid that his thread would get locked down eventually but he wouldn't listen).
